Working Assignments In Tapah And Teluk Intan

A few of us started out our journey to the smaller districts again this morning, this time to Tapah, a forty five minutes drive from Ipoh.  From the highway, we detoured into the district and had our breakfast at a famous stall here.
Lots of varieties being displayed at such an early hour... 
 
 Famous for this... such a Giant Kuali...
Young banana shoots with beef curry... 
First time eating this with Roti Canai...
It has been a long time since I last taken this Roti Canai...
Unhealthy, no doubt.... but so nice that I couldn't resist it this morning...
Passed through the town and soon we reached the district office...
Spent some hours there working.... and soon it was lunch time...
I took a bit of rice with ginger fried chicken, fish and a piece of spicy brinjal....
Can see something peculiar here?
How come we were holding hands???
Well, I guess this is called teamwork...
hahahaa....
After lunch, we proceeded another forty five minutes to Teluk Intan.... 
Passed through some nice padi fields....
Teluk Intan District.... 
Another beautiful landscape being maintained here......
Active Koi-s swimming here and there....
Soothing for the eyes when work is a pressure.... 
I wouldn't mind working here....
The greens are soothing to the eyes...

Another few hours of work and soon it was time to leave....
Going back to Ipoh took one and half hours drive....
Had a real nice snooze during the journey.... 
And reached home around 6.30pm.... 
Pheww.... What a Long Day.....

  11. Batang pisang? The banana tree trunk or what? Sounds kind of obscene, if you ask me. Hehehehehe!!!! Maybe they mean the hati pisang - the flower, I think, that is.

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...
