Our Weekend Indulgence In Penang

DROVE UP NORTH TO PENANG ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AROUND 3PM...
By the time we reached the island, it was almost... almost time for dinner.  After checking in to the hotel, we adjourned for food and more food at this food paradise island...

First stop at Free School Garden food court, it opens day and night, plenty of varieties over there at the stalls, only problem is that the stomach cannot fill in much... LOL... I think it is something to do with age.. my age, I mean.. My eyes are wide but the mouth is too small...
Ended up taking a plate of Fried Koay Teow... RM6 or RM7
And steamed crabs which cost RM64!
Went to Chulia Street for more food... it is famous for Wanton noodles.. 
But stomach cannot put in anymore main meal... 
Wanted something lighter ... 
A better choice with a mixture of fish and greens...
RM5 for 11 pieces and I love the generous crispy garlic toppings... 
Next morning we went to Pulau Tikus... 
One of the coffeeshops famous for their Fried Mee... RM6
Hokkien prawn noodles RM6
One whole egg!
Very tasty too... 
We ordered a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng to share... 
And we could not resist the Pasembur as well.... RM9.50
For afternoon tea, I had Laksa at Ayer Itam... Rm4
Too full for anything else...
Then later at night we went to Jelutong Market for Koay Kak... 
And vegetarian meehoon which is quite popular around that area.... 
Ended the meal with sweet dessert called "Everything IN"
A mixture of 10 ingredients or more.... RM4 
Monday morning before we depart, we had Dim Sum at Macalister Road... 
And reached Ipoh around noon...
This is our "Weekend Indulgence"...
Back to simple homecooked food in Ipoh!

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...
