Seven At Sam Po, Ipoh

My big kids are back for the long weekend! Time really flies, right? Every now and then we seem to be back together as a family but in actual fact, it is around one month since we last saw each other.  Moments like these are pretty rare nowadays, we have to adjust to each other vacation's and semester break.   Even if it is only a short four days of togetherness, there is never a dull moment when we are together...

Food brings the family closer.. hahahaa... when we talk about food, our eyes kind of "sparkle"... I guess it is in our genes or in their genes, whatever... we love eating outside (since yours truly rarely cooks but I DID ... er... once... )  hahahaa...   

Okay, back to my present post, one of our meals were taken in Sam Po in Ipoh Garden East.

Part of the "contingent" at Sam Po...

  5. All the food looks very delicious to me.....mmmm. I wish I know how to cook that brinjal dish. Looks really good. And for RM91? That's cheap! If I can get such good food at that price here, I think I will close down my kitchen and not cook at all.....haha.

    It's really wonderful to see that all your children can be back together every once in a while. Yes, must really treasure those times cos they won't last. It will get less once they have family of their own. Then you become busy again....haha. But good busyness :D Take care and hope you have a lovely week. I'm praying hard that you will retire early so that you will come here again soon :D

  15. I think 91 for 7 is very affordable too. Here it is at least 20 per pax for a sit down dinner like this. I like the beancurd and petola gourd dish.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
