Dinner At Gunong Rapat And Ipoh Garden

MY IPOH KITCHEN IS NOT OPENED YET... due to some renovation, the place is still in a mess! I really dread any repairs in the house, there is so much dust everywhere, everything needs to be cleaned up again... and again... sigh... Well, after a long holiday, it is time to work, right? Got to start somewhere and the most appropriate place is right in our own Sweet Home! :) And that is what my project is.. this minor renovation will keep me occupied for at least a week or two before I start to pack again... hahahaa... 

Since I cannot use the kitchen as yet, I have to take my main meals outside... for tonight's dinner, I drove all the way to Gunong Rapat Main Road to take "not-so-healthy" food again... The tasty ones are always not so healthy... why is it so???  Anyway, moderate portions and once awhile, it should be alright, kan?  *Self consolation again*

 The stall just next to a church on the main road in Gunong Rapat...
I made the orders.... Fried Koay Teow..
Big noodles was next and it was so "lardy" fragrant!
The side order is crispy fried Wanton!  They seem oil-less though... 
It is RM3 per plate... still hot and fresh...
Eaten with Sambal Belacan is the best option...
As if the above meal was not enough, we adjourned to Ipoh Garden Gourmet Square...
 For a plate of RM6 rojak...
I didn't take much... my teeth is feeling weird!
But a bowl of Creamy Ice Kacang managed to tempt me...
Over here in Malaysia, we have fresh santan to use
whereas in my sister's place, all they have is tin can santan... 
Fresh or tin can, I should not indulge too much in it...
But then again, once awhile is "acceptable"... kan?

  1. hahaha, even if your ipoh kitchen is opened, i guess the ratio of cooking to eating out also very low lah, haha!! wow, today's dinner is rather, errrmmmm, oily huh?? all the fried noodles and the deep fried stuffs, plus Malaysian style desserts, well no need to elaborate more on Malaysian desserts, right?? haha.. but like you said, once in a while, acceptable lah..

  14. While u enjoy life as a retiree, I think u should eat less outside and eat more home cooked food. This is to help maintaining a healthy body, not for the sake of yourself, but for the sake of your children, who eventually will be taking care of you. I am sure you do not want to be a burden to them, due to Heath reason. Having lots of fun now by eating unhealthy food may not be wise, after all..

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....

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
