A Fishy Post On A Thursday

TOOK MY 1 1/2 YEAR OLD CAR TO PERODUA FOR THE THIRD SERVICING... The total run is only 12,000 km, yes, this car is always staying at home most times, my girl seldom utilizes it.  Anyone who buys this car will be happy, it is like six months old car.  OK, any takers?  LOL...

Anyway, I was no more LOL when the man told me that the estimated servicing would cost around RM300 or more.... sigh....

After I left my car at the Perodua, my friend came all the way from her house to pick me up for breakfast.  Hefty bill or not, I wanted to have a heavy breakfast and it has been a long time since I last ate this fish noodles at First Garden.  It cost RM8.50 for each bowl now compared to RM5 during my working days few years ago.
Generous portion of fish meat with salted vegetables and wine soup....
Yes, the soup has a strong chinese wine taste in it....
Both of us enjoyed to our hearts' content.... Yummy!!

After our breakfast, my friend took me back to her house... 
Upon arriving, I saw these homemade deco in her garden...
They really caught my eye!
"Hey, since I have nothing much to post today, can I take these to post up?"

Just look at that....
Her old kettles and crock pot.... 
She is indeed very innovative!!
And there is another one here.... 
Her Guppies fishes are indeed very Happy!
Long time ago, I remember someone told me that watching fishes swimming here and there
.... is a good Destressing Therapy....
And this is proven right.... 
The two wooden stools are "ever ready" for anyone who needs a quiet time....
Perhaps one day I might get one of these above for my own garden...
But Wait till I settle down first.....otherwise my fishes will be homeless.... 
LOL...

  2. Wow! Your friend is very creative, innovative and smart. I am sure she is enjoying a blissful life with good feng shui at home with all the pots, pans and kettles pouring out wealth to the happy fishes. You must hang out with this friend more as she will radiate good frequency. Is your friend reading this? Hihihi

  5. Such a really lovely and crafty idea for the guppy ponds! One could sit there and look for a long time. The guppies are shimmering in your photos! The noodles look very good too!

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...
