Friday's Close Work Lunch At Kim Wah Restaurant, Ipoh


For the past few years we make it a point to meet up to "close work" for the year before ushering in the New Year according to Chinese calendar.  "We" here are the ones working together for the past number of years, now most of us have retired except for a few younger ones left behind.  Now we retirees has outnumbered the working ones..... sooner or later, in another one or two years time, there will be only one young lady left behind... a lone ranger... while the rest of us are lazing around the house!  LOL...

Today is the day we meet up again... I went to my old office and met up with them.. and off we went to our designation, Kim Wah Restaurant in Farlim.  It was almost 1pm when we reached, Fridays are always jammed up everywhere.. the weather nowadays is flaming hot and other than that, we looked forward to our "Food Gathering" in the cool air con restaurant....

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....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
