Pillow Dumplings Along Cintra Street, Penang

From Hutton Lane, we adjourned to Cintra Street to get some "Bah Chang" (Dumplings) to take back to Ipoh. Love the Bah Chang there but I think their sizes have somehow "shrunk" compared to those days. From the price of RM2.50, they are now sold at RM3.50 each... Well, it is not surprising considering that everything has gone up by now and still going up every now and then....

Along the way, I stopped and took some pictures...
Campbell House now a boutique hotel...
Here is the Chang shop...
There are a few types of dumplings sold here... 
I prefer the white glutinous rice type of dumplings with lots of beans...
They started in 2000?
Here are some of the choices...
Their steamed yam pudding is not bad too..
And their Ang Tau Sar (Red Bean Dessert) is not to be missed as well..
Back in Ipoh, I steamed this up for my dinner...
 I call this Pillow Dumpling (Jum Tau Choong)
Filled with yellow beans, salted egg and meat..
Come to think of it, I still have one left inside the freezer!

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...

I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
