I Am A Traveling Nomad

REACHED IPOH IN THE EVENING after more than 24 hours journey.. My journey started from Sacramento, a two hours drive to San Francisco, then a 17 hours flight to Kuala Lumpur, excluding transit at Hongkong for two hours, reaching Kuala Lumpur at 12.30pm in the afternoon.  From the airport, we "hired" a driver to take us back to Ipoh, another three hours drive... and finally stepping into my home sweet home at around 4.30pm... Phewwww.... Thank GOD for journey mercies and smooth journey all the way back.... good to be home again after 90 days....

Oh wait!! I spoke too soon... In less than 48 hours in Ipoh, I was "whisked off" again!  Yes, I am Not a robot but it happened this way... The next moment, I found myself in Penang, I was told not to worry, she would be doing all the driving, all I need to do is to sit back and relax.  Relax?  No way, the moment she started to drive, I have to sit up and be on the look-out!  LOL...

At least I spent two nights in Ipoh before leaving my nest again... I didn't even have time to unload my suitcases, my goodness... all I did was to pack a few belongings and off we went....
And here I am.. sitting up, eyes open and looking at the road.... 
Thank goodness, no jet lag... *slept a lot on the plane*
Second Bridge is very quiet... 
Good, no traffic jam...
And while my girl attended to some functions,
 I took some simple meals such as these.... 
Penang Hokkien mee... 
Most missed... Laksa without shrimp paste...
Chives Dumplings...
Durian ice cream!!
Reminded me of Leatherby's in Sacramento...
Ok, don't compare..... 
This is only RM3.50... so I won't comment anything... LOL...
hmmmm.....What shall I say...... 
By the way... 
is Wonder Woman still flying around the movie theater?

  2. Wah! You are one super woman! For me 2 nights in Penang left me tired and sleepy!

  3. Indeed you are a nomad! I would pengsan like that. Me is no wonder woman. Good for you that you can sleep on the plane. I was wide awake on the way there and back.

    1. I took half a tablet for motion sickness so I was fine... otherwise will be like Zombie!

  4. Bet you missed our local delights so much while you were in the US. Hmmm...Penang again. Gotta go regularly to handle your financial matters there? Your millions in the bank?

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.... 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

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...
