Original Cakes At Gurney Mall, Penang

MUCH HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT ON SOCIAL MEDIAS ABOUT ORIGINAL CAKES many-many months ago... but I only get  a chance to talk about it now... LOL... See updated I am...

There is no franchise in Ipoh as yet, maybe the market is not there, buying power is lesser here than in other states.  My girl wanted to try this much-shout about cake called Original Cakes which are originated from Taiwan.  There are two branches in Penang, one in Gurney mall and another one in Queensbay.  Before leaving Penang, we went to Gurney to get the taste of this cake... Ended up buying two boxes home.
Freshly taken out from the oven.... 
Half of the giant cake is cheese and half is plain as in original...
We opted for the plain one.... 
The distributing begins....
They measured and made a mark before cutting up... 
Five loaves on each side... 

Once cut, the young lady will put into the boxes...
Since the cakes are still hot and fresh,  
we have to leave the box open for at least half an hour... 
By the time they were in Ipoh, the "swelling" has subsided a bit.... 
Still warm no doubt... 
Taste?
The egg fragrance is there... very soft texture... 
Caan eat two or three pieces at one go is not a problem...
Something like chiffon cake to me with a softer texture... 
So this is what Original Cake tastes like...
By the way, it is RM15 per box.

  4. We have that here. Overrated! A cousin bought for us, most got thrown away, nobody wanted to eat - lucky thing I did not buy myself. Would curse and swear.

    1. Why throw away? Can be eaten, right? Just taste like normal egg sponge cake, right?

    2. Dunno, my sis. Maybe left there too long, nobody eating so did not want to keep, taking up space only. I did not hear of it getting moldy so I don't think that's the reason.

      If she had given it to me to take home, I would eat - I don't complain one, anything edible is good for me...especially if it's free. Hehehehehe!!!!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
