Work Hard For Good Food

The next day after the funeral, all of us siblings and our kids did a "gotong-royong" ... we cleaned up the whole house, throwing what is not needed and keeping the necessities. There were more than 10 of us, some were in charge of upstairs and some downstairs. One of my siblings joked, "Workers are few, supervisors are aplenty!" Yes, most of us like to supervise only.. hahaha... those younger ones ended up doing more than us...

Soon it was time for a treat after all the hard work.  In three cars, we went to Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji.  All of us were still in our "dirty uniform" and unkempt hair... hahahaa...
This is us...
Untidy.... 
And yet... 
I can still managed a smile with food in my mouth!
Ok, this is much better... Food gulped!
We had Tuck Kee's famous noodles...
Smoked Duck...
And some greens and fried rice....
This was the last dish to come out....
Succulent prawns with noodles....
I guess all of us deserved a Big Treat here...
and... 
I am sure my mom would love to see us like this too....

  8. The famous noodles look the best to me. Your mom would have been so proud of all of you. It is good to have such a large family to do all this. Can be very sad if you are alone.

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...
