The Long Journey From South To North

TIME TO HIT THE ROADS AGAIN... Yes, our ten days stay in Johor has come to an end.  We woke up early in the morning, packed our stuff into the car, bade farewell to our little nest and adjourned to have our breakfast before we headed for the highway.  During our stay, we did not have Dim Sum till the very last moment, my girl suggested going to Changman.  According to my son, prices have gone up steeply... oh well, nothing surprising, everything seems to have gone up and I told him that we would go to check our the prices... we simply cannot leave JB without going for our regular place of Dim Sum... 
 My girl's favourite BBQ dumplings... she finished the three of them... 
I took a small bite only.. they are mini-sized anyway...
I had Chicken Koay Teow soup... my girl took a small portion.... 
Steamed Chee Cheong Fun with BBQ pork...
And a plate of three mini egg tarts...
Before we left, we also packed some cakes and dumplings... 
Just in case we get hungry on the way... 
We started our journey around 10.30am.... 
Weather was good, thank God... traffic was smooth.... 
And my girl drove 3/4 of the five hours plus journey... 
Young people's eyes are always sharper, right!
We reached Ipoh around 4pm... 
This is the first time both of us drove alone without the guys.... 
For the journey to and fro, the expenses came to around RM250...

  4. 5 hours? Wowwww!!! That's a long time but then again, you have nice highways there. Here, you would probably need 10 hours, same distance.

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...
