No Shopping But Bonding

 NO MORE SHOPPING FOR NOW... Our bags are full to the brim, my two suitcases are reaching 50lbs and that is the maximum.  My hand luggage is 20lbs and it should be 15lbs max.  I have another backpack on my back and a handbag in front.  Sigh.. ladies like me... we never stop learning, right?  I mean I cannot resist buying even though my bag is bloated, I still want to find the smallest space I can find to chuck the loots in.  Eventually, I have to "sacrifice" some of things behind, my old clothes plus a few new ones.

So... these few days, we are very "behaved."  Instead of shopping, we spent our time eating... that was in my previous post... and we went to pamper ourselves doing pedicure, going to our friend's house for good food and company... and for the remaining time, we have family bonding playing "mahjung", chatting at the patio in the evening and going for a "holler-coaster"ride around the vicinity.... Good girls, right?  LOL...
Some of the Food prepared by the hostess and a dish or two by us...

Our Asian friends... 
Being pampered instead of going shopping till dropping...
Showing off their well done work and not our elephant feet.... LOL....
Family bonding time at the patio..... 
And now.... shall we go for a drive???
I promise I will drive safely....
Unfortunately the Car Owner said No, I cannot be the driver...
Instead I shall be a passenger instead... 
Get belted up, girl!!
And the Holler-Coaster began... 
Taped it all on video... with all the ooohhh...ahhhhsss.. screamsssss...
LOL...

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!

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...
