Day Trip To Coastal Kg Koh Sitiawan

WE THOUGHT OF GOING TO CAMERON HIGHLANDS THE NEXT DAY.... but no, we changed our minds the next morning!  It is a bit too far and tiring to drive all the way up but it was not too far when we decided to go Sitiawan instead.... hahahaha...  The journey from Ipoh to Sitiawan took around one hour and a half to reach.  Not near too but at least it is not a long and winding road unlike Camerons.
It is more like a straight road... all the way to our destination... 
Yes, we "consulted" Waze again, 
We keyed in Pasar Awam Kg Koh...
Heard that their Kolo and Lor Mee is famous there...
But alas.... the stall was closed upon reaching... 
Sigh.. kek si....

Instead we winded up here randomly...
Not sure what they offered but we saw something interesting...
Three big pots of "tongsui" *sweet desserts* and people crowding around... 
Many types of kueh too....
Just got a few to try.... 
"Dissecting" the pulut sambal..... 
This one is new to me... tastes good too!
Glutinous rice with peanuts, red dates and melon sugar...
Must be a Hock Chiew dessert!
Yes, this too... Peanuts tong sui... 
Laksa in Kg Koh?
Yes, we certainly did order and ate this... sour enough!
And we had Kolo noodles... 
Served with a few fried crispy beancurd skin and BBQ meat... 
And the total cost for the meal plus drinks cost around RM15...
Well, that means RM5 for each of us!

  3. I miss Sitiawan! I grew up there but left right after college. My parents are in Malacca now so I don't have reasons to go back to Sitiawan anymore :(

  10. Sitiawan is a very interesting place for the Foochow clans food and desserts. Spot on and you ate them all. I must share with you about their famous chilly sauce which has too many imitations today which are making bigger bucks than the original Kampong Koh's. Read this okay >>>> http://www.thestar.com.my/metro/smebiz/focus/2015/09/07/the-real-garlicky-deal/

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
