Happy Steamboat On A Public Holiday!

A public holiday today...We woke up very early this morning because the painter promised to come before 8am... true enough, Labbie started barking around that time... And since we were already up so early, my girl and I went to the morning market. Very rare occasion to see both of us in the market so early in the morning... I should have taken a picture to remember this by!

Today's menu is homecooked food... yes, finally I did some cooking in the house today.  We have planned for a steamboat many days before and it did not materialize till today... Being me, I do not know how to estimate well and I ended up buying lots of greens, just for eight of us only.  Yes, I bought a lot of greens and I think I alone had taken more than half a kati... it is not much when we soaked them into the steamboat...
Ended up buying half kati of this and that... thus amounting to this whole lot!
Laying all of them down on the table...
Everything is ready except for the soup!  It is still in the Pot... hahahaa...
This one is more complete...
I did two types of soup.... one plain and one tomyam...
Half way through.... still have lots to finish....
Happy Steamboat Day!!
After tonight, No more steamboat until next year... 
LOL...

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... 

Purnama Beach Resort, Pangkor

We thought we would be sleeping in these type of chalets when we checked in on Monday. 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...
