Massive Floods, Missing Airplane And A Mini Landslide

I was so busy this Sunday morning that I did not check my online messages in my hp until 1.30pm. That was when I got to know the tragic news on the missing airplane.  It came as a shock and the first thing that came to my mind... "Oh No.. Not again??"  And this time the ill fated plane is Air Asia, first time in history as far as I know.   Quickly I logged into Facebook... yes, the news were all over... Prayers are needed from everyone regardless of nationality.... and hope is still there if the plane is not found yet...

Malaysia is having a lot up on her sleeves these days... literally speaking....

Just watched a heart wrenching video taken by someone in Kota Bharu on the floods that claimed two lives struggling to stay afloat despite the strong current but eventually, it was a losing battle...  sigh..

While I was taking a walk last evening, I was taken aback by this "mini landslide" here at the school compound...
One part of the wall came tumbling down....
Must be due to the heavy rain for the past few days or weeks...
Missing the street light pillar....
If the slabs fell onto the lamp post, I think it would be serious...
Quite a big portion has fallen down in fact....
And now the drain water are "stuck".... 
Another problem will arise.... Dengue!
Hope the authorities will come soon to repair this...
 if another slab of cement were to fall, the lamp post will come tumbling down too...

  8. I hope not Dengue...surely not in modern times and people are aware of that now? The planes, what is happening? Some are being flown away by a person! It is frightening to have to fly now!! Claire, please do not get on an airplane, that is a worry of mine. Stay safe!

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...
