Our Yearly Affair At Delights Restaurant, Ipoh

SAU KOONG CHAU...... literally known as "Close Shop" or "Stop Work" is our annual affair when the festive season Chinese New Year is coming near.  My ex-colleagues whom we know for umpteen years already, make it a point to have a gathering meet-up and have a good session of food before we  usher in the Chinese Lunar Year 2019.  

This year again, we have our Friday long hours lunch at Delight Restaurant, a nice place for us, less crowded and less noise so that we don't have to raise our voices in our table of 10.  There is a new face this year in our group, she just joined in the government service few months ago, the youngest gal among us all.  It was a very fun and interesting afternoon, most of the time we focused on the new young staff.... a very witty and hardworking lady who works from early morning till midnight... Knowing her, each of us feel kind of blessed in our own way... LOL... 
The pensioners being the early birds... 
Back to our menu.... this is a set meal which cost RM668... 
As usual, this is a Must for every set during this festive season of the year... 
After the furnishings, it become like this... 
Then the Big Toss with good wishes in the air... 
Chicken Herbal Soup with lots of goodness inside... 
I drank three bowls of this... good for my age... LOL.. 
Steamed Giant Fish.. 
Mixed Vege..
Needs no introduction... 
Crispy Fried Pork Knuckle... 
And lastly, the Lap Mei Farn... 
And the "celebrities".... 
Oh, I mean those who came to celebrate this festive event of "Close Shop" for CNY...
This year our colour theme is Yellow... 
Even the restaurant table cloth was in theme with us!

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.......

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...
