Happy Retirement Lunch At Delight Restaurant, Ipoh

ANOTHER ONE TO GO...

Thinking back, it has been more than 3 years since I retired and never once looking back or missing my any of my job scope.  All I miss is the morning breaks where we go out and "charge battery" before starting work each day!  LOL... I miss the fun gathering together and the food discoveries every now and then.  So .. whenever we have a chance, I for one would be looking forward to this type of gathering again, regardless of the whatever reason we could think of.

And now, another of my ex colleagues have reached her retirement age, compulsory not optional, so have to pack up and go gracefully.... LOL!  Yes, some do miss working, it can be pretty depressing for some who are not ready to retire.  However, on the brighter side, just tell ourselves... "Hey, this is it!  Have been working non-stop for the past 30 years or more, this is the time to rest n relax!"  Cheers!!

To celebrate our colleague's retirement, we gathered at Delight Restaurant for a scrumptious lunch!
Steamed yam with pork ribs... 
Steamed beancurd with egg and toppings such as these.... 
Flavourful Prawns...
Claypot Ginger Chicken 
Mixed Vegetables...
One more of the greens.... for us seniors... 
Steamed fish in sourish ginger sauce...
And the ten of us.... mixture of working and retired ladies!
Happy Retirement, my friend... Join in our Retirement Club!  
LOL...

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...
