Showers Of Blessings For My Red Babe

SOUTHBOUND DRIVE...

His annual leave has come to an end... time to go back and "work hard for the money", so he said.  :)
We packed our stuff into my 12 years old Red Babe and said a prayer before we left Ipoh.  Prayed that the journey would be smooth and the car would endure the 6 hours drive back to the very tip of Southern Malaysia. 

Started off filling our tummies with noodles at around 9.30am, drove to Nancy Chong's bakery to collect a One Kg Cake and by the time we left Ipoh, it was almost 11am.... With lots of goodies in the car, we were not stopping for any lunch along the way, only except to the rest house for a couple of times...
Weather was good... 
Red Babe car was behaving very well too.... 
Until....
We reached Johor toll around 4pm....
It started to rain quite heavily...
Andy winded down the mirror to pay for the Toll....
And then....
The window got stuck... 
It just wouldn't want to go UP.... 
Kaput!

Despite the heavy rain, we continued on driving...
With the window stuck like after the toll...
The rain sipped in on his side.... 
Thank God, our destination is not too far away... 
To fear or to laugh?
We opted for the latter.... 
Despite the rain, we reached our little nest.... 
And the best thing is...
The Window was fully UP by then!
Showers of Blessings into my Red Babe as she lands in Johor.... safely!

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... 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...
