Our Virgin Drive To City Square, Johor

JOHOR CITY SQUARE?

Oh, oh, I thought she was kidding when she wanted to go there this morning... just the two of us who have never drove outside our residential area before.  All we know is that City Square is in the Johor city and how to go there, we have to rely on our gadget, Waze and nothing else.  And so.. she dares.. and I have to go along with the "dare"...

Before we started off, I have to doubly confirm with her.. make sure her phone has battery, mine has only 20% left cos I did not expect to go to the city this morning.  And off we set out... with the nice steady voice of the lady directing us all the way to the city where it is known as the "Cowboy town" those days.  Really.. why cowboy, I wonder....

Yes, we reached City Square without any hassle, thank God.. smooth drive all the way, no, I was not the driver, only the navigator... She is the "darer" one... actually come to think of the drive now, it is quite easy, all the way straight to the city and back, but with the Voice, we are more confident.
Disney products are on promotion at the lobby... 
No, we did not shop first.. 
Our stomachs were "growling" for Food.. and it was almost 11.30am!
We went looking for Go Noodles shop at Level 6
BUT
It is only opening on the 9 September!  
Someone received wrong info, for sure.... 
We chose Din Tai Fung instead... 
We don't have that in Ipoh... 
I told my girl.. No sharing this time...
Each of us must have one main meal.... 
This time we must try their famous Fried Rice with Shrimps... RM21.70
Indeed there are lots of them hidden inside... more than 10 shrimps, I think...
I looked at the table next to us.. 
Theirs are evenly shaped.. ours are out of shape... LOL...
She ordered a bowl of Lai Meen with vegetables n meat dumplings.... RM20.60
Huge portions actually.... 
But we managed to finish them all.... 
Oh yeah.. we must have some desserts after our meal.... 
Sesame Peanut Balls for RM9.50...
Yes, we shared this equally too...
Cos we love them!!
ahhhh... That is definitely One Heavy Meal... 
Will definitely last us till dinner... 
So what's for dinner? 
Guess.... it starts with B... 
LOL...

  6. hah..hah.. memang your fried rice was out of shape! There is a Din Tai Fung at 1-U and I find the taste of the food is quite mild for me. I like my food more jazzy if you know what I mean.

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...
