Signature Dishes At Marpoh, Ipoh

It was not a surprise to me when my weighing scale showed that I have gained Two Kg!  Yes, I was expecting the scale to move right instead of left... from 47kg to 49kg in just a month or so.  The quantity that I have consumed and the lack is exercise is not at all "healthy" .... I really must do something about it.... seriously, I should and I hope I could....

With all the festive seasons and trips I have been going, it is about time for me to slow down.  My girl is going back to college soon and I think after that, I will be able to trim down. *believe me*   No more eating out at least, I will just take oats for dinner or perhaps I just take fruits... 

All being said and not done yet, we had another scrumptious dinner for the six of us in Marpoh Restaurant, Ipoh Garden.   We ordered four dishes only and these are the kids' favourite...
Their signature sauce for Talapia... RM30
This is called "Cheong Cheng Kam Foong Yue"
Just the sauce alone is very appetizing...
Not too spicy and sweet...
Butter creme crayfish aka "lai liew har"  RM20...
Tasty to the brim!
Alright... can anyone guess what this is"?
They are not fried french fries, for one thing...
My kids love them... my nephews, nieces love them too...
Try guessing... 
They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside....
And the Thai sweet sauce is just the right combination!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
