Penang Food Delights At Night


When I go for a "food trip", many times I wish that my metabolism level is at full gear... digesting food fast and leaving the stomach for more space for consumption. Unfortunately it is not like this anymore, at my age, I have to nibble here and there to taste varieties, no more large portions and eating like nobody's business.  I have to be careful with what I eat now, if I were to taste more, I have to cut down from full portion to half.... and half...

Here I was in Kimberley Street in the evening... wanting to try from different stalls this time...
I was there to taste the desserts in Restoran Kimberley with my kids last week...
But on Saturday we just passed it by.... 
I wanted to try different stalls...
 Walking along the street... must be careful with our bags...
Busy traffic during the day and night...
 This time I tried the mee sua lor...
Must put in some vinegar, it tastes better that way...
I would prefer the mee sua are not "broken" into small pieces like these..
 I took this instead... fried koay teow with duck eggs...
 RM6 per plate... not that cheap anymore but it tastes good!
 After our dinner, we drove to another area nearby....
Crowd was there... waiting for seats... 
Seems the Wan Ton Noodles here is very nice..
Too bad no seats were available....
 But all is not lost.... I saw Apom Stall....
 And bought RM3 for 5 pieces....
Crispy and Nice!
 Next we drove to the Free School Garden.....
Tried their curry noodles.... RM3.30
A bit sweet for me...
I prefer this as my second dinner for the night... hahahaa....
 and ended the night with a bowl of Variety Dessert!
That was my Friday night dinner... or should I say supper as well??
*suck tummy in*

  7. With young people you get to sample some of their food and don't have to order your own since you can't eat a lot at one go now. Was the duck egg ckt very different from the chicken egg ckt?

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...
