The Chinese New Year Journey Down South

TIME TO REPORT BACK TO WORK AFTER THE FESTIVE SEASON....

After a long break, it is going down south again, we need to start work in order to bring food on the table.  Oh, not me though, I have my share of working already for the past thirty years or more.  It is time for me to sit back and see others work instead.  Aha.... no, I am just kidding...... Of course, I still work, only difference is that now there is no more boss hovering behind me, I am a so-called Home Minister or in other words a "Housemaid?"  LOL...  I am paid to manage the homes, I clean, I mop, I wash, I cook... these are endless work which I do not really like but have to....  The only consolation is that I can do at my own pace and time and get paid regardless... LOL.....

So... here I am with my Two Bosses... wherever they go, I follow.... This time I do not have to drive, I just have to sit back and relax for a few hours journey.   We stopped in Sg. Buloh for a break and we went to take the most expensive food court meal we ever had in our whole life!  Quote from son.
The Trio going on the journey with us.... 

Wherever they go, I just follow.... 
Stopped for a break in Sg Buloh corner coffeeshop...and had these....
And we also ordered this...
Fresh Garoupa with noodles...
Each of us ordered a bowl.... 
And a big bowl of Fish Balls.... 
For five bowls of noodles plus a bowl of Fish Head and Fish Balls, 
the bill came to a whooping RM160!
Believe it or not, it is true.... 
The lady was laughing when she collected the money but certainly not us... 
Well, I say it again... must be the Chinese New Year prices...
Then we proceeded on our journey after the "heavy" lunch.... 
Raining at certain parts...
Anyway, all was good, Thank God...
We reached our destination around 7pm just in time for dinner!

  5. I dis not know you had taken a job. But now you can choose your hours, and that is great! Here, we call these house tenders maids. One of my good friends does this. You can make pretty good money, and it is a good job for retired people. Being helpful is always good!

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...
