Our First Dinner At Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

By the time we reached Johor, it was almost dinner time!  We quickly unloaded all our stuff in the living hall and set out to fill our hungry tummies!  As my son drove, he showed me all the shops that serve food during the daytime... since they are working during the day, I need to know how to get food for my girl and I... both of us will be "stranded" if we do not know how to drive around the vicinity....  hahahaa...

Back to our dinner, we were taken to this shop here called Uncle Pou Wok!  What a cute name...
The crowd was already there when we reached....
Food here must be Good just by looking at the occupied tables....
Uncle Pou Wok... (Repair Kuali) or does it have a different meaning in Mandarin?
Most of the tables were fully occupied...
This noodles came within five minutes after we ordered...
We were wondering why the fast service....
Seems that this was not our order... but then too late... we already "emptied" it within minutes!
The noodles were very tasty... 
Lots of lard and fragrant sambal to go with it!
Soon the steamed chicken followed suit...
Young "Siew Bak Choy"
And this is their signature dish....
Fish Soup with Yam and other varieties...

 As usual, the camera gets to take everything in.....
Including us humans....
And when everything is already taken.... finally...................
Let's start!!

  2. Love the steamboat!!! I like!!! And the Hokkien mee too. The yellow colour of the steamed chicken - is that natural? Corn-fed chicken and hence this colour?

  4. Their steamed chicken and fish Steamboat are very good. However, I don't like their attitude in one of their outlets and never patronize since then.

  10. I not trying to say sibling love is not good but sometimes it may bring negative effect. By looking at the second photo, if people don't know your family, people may think that your daughter got BF already. Then she will lose a lot of opportunities ( I guess she not lack of opportunity). My ex-female colleague told me about this logic.

  11. The food is so delicious looking and that's my type of choices! I always enjoy looking at your kids in the photos. They appear like your siblings and friends instead which is very good! They get older but you get younger pula. Muahahaha

    It is so hard to find happy families nowadays. Well done mama!

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...
