Xin Seafood Village At Kuala Sepetang

DAY OUTING.... To the valleys, Kuala Sepetang and Taiping town. 

Started off the one hour journey without breakfast in Ipoh, leaving more space in our tummies for food in Kuala Sepetang.  Just a glass of fresh fruit juice in the morning and off we went.  Drove one round in Taiping town and then it was almost 11am.  By then my stomach was already calling for "Food, food... please" ... and from Taiping, another 15 minutes drive to Kuala Sepetang.  

Stopped at a fish village to get some of dried seafood stuff.... four of us ended up buying a few packets each.... and from there, we walked to the nearby open air Xin seafood restaurant facing the river bay.  We ordered a few dishes including crabs and I was surprised that the price was quite reasonable... 
This is Kuala Sepetang, a small fishing village near Taiping...
The dried stuff being dried under the hot sun... 
Salted fish in making.... 
I like to eat salted fish but have not done so for a long time already
after hearing and reading so much about them.... 
And from Xin restaurant, the fishing village could be seen.... 
Fishing boats at dock.... 
Very patriotic too... 
As for the food....
Fried prawns... 
Sambal Kangkung....
Oyster omelette....
Cuttlefish with dried chillies... 
Noodles for two but it came out in such a big portion... 
Steamed crabs... 
Halfway through the meal.... 
Yes, mostly are leftovers... they are not wasted though... 
We finished the crabs but not the rest.... 
The remainder were taken back for dinner.... 
Meal above cost around RM118...
We eat, we buy.... and soon... 
Bye Bye!

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....

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...
