Half Way To Hakka Village, Balik Pulau

MY NEIGHBOUR TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD VISIT HAKKA VILLAGE IN BALIK PULAU... Oh, I didn't know there is such a tourist spot up on the hills, all I think of is Durians when one mention Balik Pulau or Laksa.  Since I am in the travel mode, I suggested to my friend who willingly oblige to go and have a look at the place.

Using Waze, we managed to go through some village and ended up at a small lane leading up to Hakka Village.  But the road was so narrow, we were having some second thoughts whether to go or not to go.... and while contemplating, we spotted something more attractive and eventually we aborted our idea of going up and up...
The road leading up to Hakka Village....
Looks kind of narrow, just enough for one car to go through.... 
Isn't this something more attractive?
We saw this crowd while on the narrow road and quickly we parked our car at the side...
The durian trees just next to the stall....
With the durian family looming above our heads.... 
This is a much better adventure!
Ladies do know how to enjoy Life, eh... 
I also WANT!
Beautiful on the inside..... 
Durians brings us together!
Let's eat and be merry!!

  1. I know you get durians any way and any how you can. But this is the first time I have seen you get them straight from the tree! The best and freshest way!

  7. Hmm.. I think now still not the best time yet. Wait another 2-3 weeks, then the liu lian season in full swing, all species of exotic liu lian also you can eat! :P

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

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....

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

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...
