A Seven Hours Itinerary In Ipoh

ON A WEEKEND... and that was Saturday, just yesterday, two of my friends came from the north.  It was just a day trip.  They arrived at 11.30am, parked their car in my house and I became their tour guide for the day.  LOL... Before that, I did some research on what to eat, they wanted local food and I try to squeeze as much as I could in a matter of few hours.

Firstly, I took them to town to try the famous chicken rice, Pak Kong is the name of the shop.  We ordered a two persons portion for the four of us.  Need to save some space in our tummy for other food.  No photos taken, we ordered a mixed combination of roasted chicken, steamed chicken and roasted pork, plus two side dishes of Achah and salted vegetables (kiam chye).

After we finished our lunch, we walked around the vicinity to get some food stuff such assalted chicken and Ipoh famous cookies.  Next, I took them to old town where the tourists go... Concubine Lanes... got some egg tarts and iced white coffee from Nam Heong to drink in the car.  Then we proceeded to get more goodies, this time from JJ rolls and cakes.  Tourists do not leave Ipoh without these.  

Since Ipoh is famous for white coffee, I took them to Chiang Jiang for a short rest and some cooling air.  We ordered some snacks to go with the white coffee.  The day trip did not end yet, I continued driving to the famous The Big Tree to let them try the fried stuff, Ipoh famous fish paste to go with laksa and curry soup.  By the time we finished, it was almost 4.30pm... time to go home for a short rest before dinner.

Rested an hour in my house before we stuffed ourselves again, for dinner I took them to the famous restaurant in Ipoh, Public Mun Choong.  Finished our dinner around 7pm and it was time for them to go back to Penang.  Come to think of it, much can be achieved in a matter of 7 hours!
Tea time snack at Chiang Jiang... 
3 dishes at Mun Choong Restaurant....
Mixed Vegetables....
Their signature dish... Fried Cod Fish...
For 3 dishes, the bill came to RM155...
All in a day's trip... 
Time to rest my tummy from today onwards... 
Reanaclaire's kitchen is confirmed open...

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... 

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
