Trip To Tg. Tualang On A Beautiful Sunday

My Penang trip is postponed again... waiting for my friend to nod her head before we can set out our journey to the island.. This week she is held up again so I guess our trip will be postponed till another week or another.. :)

No worries for me though, not going means I can go see my girl in college today at noon. Drove a 45 minutes journey to her uni and then another 20 minutes to Tg Tualang for our lunch. Bought her lots of cookies and two mooncakes too, can be able to last her for some days...

 
Reached Tg Tualang and we proceeded to  corner restaurant called Yew Kei...
 
Just opposite the market....
This's the shop....
Ordered fried oysters.... 
This time they didn't do it crispy enough....
Paku Pakis Vege in Sambal...
This one is good for constipation, right? 
Steamed Talapia in heavy gravy...

One plate of stewed "sang mee"
Tasty enough...
While the Meehoon is so-so....
Food for four of us.... 
Now you see them...

Now you don't....  haahaaa..
Total cost.. RM72.00
 
My full-stomach face...
Too full that I have to skip dinner now...
**Burp**
Excuse me....

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...
