Food Glutton

Chinese New Year is just a few days away. For the past one month, I have been busy running up and down like a mother hen! LOL... As a mother to three grown up kids, I have to start preparing my menu, what to cook for them, what to buy, what to bake.. Okay, I am exaggerating here a bit, I do not cook nor bake much, just a few dishes and bake some simple cookies, nothing to shout about much here.  But just by looking at the dishes below, they were prepared by my In-Laws, I really have to pay "tribute" to them.  As a daughter-in-law, I just have to go back and savour all the glorious food!!  How blessed I am, right?
Yes, my In-Laws are really great chefs!
That is why I love to do the "Washing-up!" after the glorious meal!
Loe Sang as the Appetizer and the Starter before the meal.. 

After the reunion meal, the desserts are next!  My sister-in-law loves baking cakes and each year she will prepare a few choices of cakes for us to savour!  Blueberry cheese cakes, carrot cakes, lemon cheesecake... and what else... hmmmmm....
Isn't she amazing!!
Now you know why I always look forward to Chinese New Year! LOL... 

However, after all being said and eaten, I need to be cautious about my own health from now on.  I am now getting younger, my metabolism is getting slower and if I eat too much and too fast, I might get indigestion or discomfort.  Well, prevention is better than cure so I better watch how much I eat this coming celebration.  By the way, I am keeping some Gaviscon in the house, well, you know, just in case... for heartburn and indigestion, it helps to relieve.... I wouldn't want to miss out all the glorious food, right?

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...
