My Memorable Toasts And Cheers!

There are many occasions where we drink to good health and happiness.  Every year I make it a point to get a few nice bottles of wine to keep in the house and come every occasion where the family gathers, I would bring out a bottle to commemorate the special event.  We love the cheers as we click our glasses and wishing everyone something good!

I remember a few special functions where families gather around the table for a reunion gathering.  This does not happen often because my siblings are living apart from one another.  We have our own families now that we are getting older and our kids are grown.  But we make it a point to have a family reunion at least once a year to gather for a nice wonderful dinner together.
This is one happy reunion that I had in Sacramento.  My mother prepared a very scrumptious dinner and invited a few close friends to come over for the gathering.  Just look the the table full of food, glorious food and our happy cheers to one another!
Let's drink to good health and peace on earth! 
When I was in Las Vegas, I tried my first cocktail offered by my brother-in-law, it is called Mathai.  He told me that I would love to drink this once I have tried it!  It is a fruity cocktail with a dash of rum, vodka, tequila etc etc.  Well, that was what I was told and true enough, I love it!
We ordered three glasses and coming to think of it now, I wish I could have a glass by my side! 
We ordered a few pieces of honey lemon chicken to go with the cocktail...
Well, that was my kind of celebration I have yearly...
Now that my kids have grown, they are welcomed to drink a bit here and there...
Anything taken moderately is good for our bodies, right?
 Cheers, everyone!  
Christmas is around the corner....
Let us wish one another Good Health and Happiness!

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

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...

But no, the lobby girl led the way.... passing by here.... and to this.... ....place instead... they looked new to me, thank goodness, only the weather turned us off on the first day, it was Xtremely hot that day and the air con was not working that good... that was why I complained on the 1st day but it was much better on Tuesday... we could stand outside here and have a little chat.... this was the place we stayed for 2 nights... ok lar. . I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
