Food Around The World Tags

Tagged by Jazzmint to write on food around the world. Well, since she wrote about Pancakes, I will write about Cakes.

I love desserts especially pastries & cakes. Those cakes that I love are not the normal sponge cakes or butter cakes but the fine cakes that really melt in your mouth types. So far, I love the tiramisu from Alexis, Chocolate Pavlova from Delicious by Ms. Read (you can see I blog about it twice :D ) & the latest are the cakes from Bakerzin.

For those who have not tried those fine cakes, please do. Although the price is a bit expensive, but it is worth the buy. Cakes are not just made from plain flour & eggs but it can evolves into a little piece of art as shown in the below scrap.

The above cakes were tried during my lunch date with Jazmine & little Faythe. We dare not ordered more because we know that our stomach is not bottomless pit *LOL* so, will definately go back there to tried out more of their cakes & other pastries.

A day out with my extended family

It was really a tiring day on Friday coz i had so little sleep. I slept at 4.30am and woke up at 10am. Need to meet my MIL & FIL @ my SIL house @ 11am to bring them out. Turn out that not only my MIL & FIL, SIL going out but the 3 sick brats also going out together.

So, off we went to 1Utama in 2 cars. We had lunch @ Dragon-i coz they never tried the siu loong pau before. Actually my MIL & SIL are more interested in the way they do the pau skin for they stand in front of the viewing glass for quite some time :p Too bad that I didn't took any photos on this day *SIGH* They were happily chatting on how the chef do it.

After having lunch, we went to MPH, coz that's one of my MIL favourite. She loves books & especially cook books (she's a really good cook). We stayed there for quite some time and in the end, left with some cook books & some name magnets that MIL bought for Aunty Susan & Uncle David in Melbourne. She also bought me the confinement cook book & name magnet. He he, now I know the meaning of my name (will blog about it later). We spent whole day in 1U but didn't manage to get any photos coz the kids are sick & in no mood for it.
We got back by 4.30pm & had dinner at SIL house. As for me, I cabut at 10.30pm coz the next day have to wke up early at 5.45am to send them to KLIA. Although it's a short trip, but I really enjoyed it. I hope they will come to KL more often. So, that's my Friday.

A Gift from my Mother in Law

I am still recuperating now, catching up some sleep. Can u believe tat I slept till 10.30am today (tat's because I set my alarm @ 10.30am) and nap from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. Still tired. My brain has given out on me as well. I really welcome some more sleep (^-^)

Busy & Tired Night

I am really tired out but it was really great. Why so? This is because my parents-in-law are in KL now (reached 10pm) & will be leaving to Melbourne on 28.04.07. Besides that, we get to meet up Alan (Gerald's big bro) @ KLIA because he need to pass something to MIL & FIL. Alan just came back from Melbourne & am transiting to Kota Kinabalu.

So, a small gathering session for Tina (Gerald eldest sis) & Alan because they haven't meet up for almost 2 years (since my wedding). We had our supper plus chat session in Burger King from 10.35pm till 12.15am. Too bad that I didn't bring my camera coz that is really a moment to capture & framed up. It will be super perfect if Gerald were there.....

Ooo, for my hubby to know : I drove the camry from KLIA back to Cheras & I feel it slow even it's already 110 km/h. Smoooooth is my word. Everyone was so tired, especially Tina. And.... your keropok are here (^-^) with me now.

Finding Nemo

I had the fun of watching Disney on Ice show for the very first time. All thanks to Jasmine. She had an extra ticket & invited me to join her & her family to watch Finding Nemo on 10.04.07. We are so lucky coz we had a front row seat. The show was great & I enjoyed watching it & also watching Faythe as well. She is really cute. I took some photo of the show but if you want better quality photo, can go here to read about it.

New Haircut

I went to have my quarterly haircut on last Saturday with Florence & her mother in law @ Shunji. Went in with long fringe & long hair, came out with extremely short fringe & not so long hair.... I look funny, though....

Why sudden change? My head has been complaining on the weight of my hair & to the extreme till my hair falls alot. So, decided to give the fringe some holiday & get healthy *LOL*

Chicken Rice @ Puchong

I am not a fan of chicken rice but I must say, this chicken rice is really nice. My colleague brought me to the shop 1 fine day after all the bankings @ Puchong business park. This shop was run by an old couple which is very nice and friendly. They even can recognise their loyal customer :)

Ok, let me promote why it is so nice (to my standard) :
  • Chicken is just nice, not too cooked, not too raw.
  • It comes with bean sprout n cucmber.
  • The ginger sauce for the chicken is superb. It's not the normal minced ginger that you get anywhere. U see it, u will know.
  • Most important is the rice. Just nice, not too oily and salty.
  • It comes with soup, everyday also different soup.

Roast chicken nicely served on top a bed of bean sprout and cucumber.

The special ginger sauce that I can't get enuf of, always asks for more.

And all this is only for RM 3.50. Can you believe it? It's so cheap , right. Where can you get a decent serving of chicken rice with this price? So, where is the shop? It is at the last row of shop after Maybank & Southern Bank. It is next to a lighting shop, facing opposite the IOI business Park. It's just a small stall run by an old couple.

B.A.T. Zone 3 Meeting

I took leave from 26.02.07 until 01.03.07 except 28.02.07. This is because my company got zone meeting & it's really not to be missed. This time, we had it at the KL Convention Center with the theme Olympic. This is my 1st time to go there, and almost got lost coming out from the building.

We had 6 games and lots of booth counter with prizes to win and also freebies. I got GSC movie voucher, 1 tumbler, note pad, big lolipop candy and lots of food to eat. Buffet lunch was served and there's also buffet dinner. But I skipped the dinner and had it with Gerald (limited time) he he he.....

Games that we had: Budhapest basketball, African Rally, English Tea Relay, Mount climbing, Gymnastic Dance & Singing contest (PS2 games)......

For the above scrap, I used MissMint Playground Pop words, 2Peas Love Me font and Shabby Princess Shabby Mommy Papers.

Tea Break @ Delicious

This is the 2nd stop in 1U on 27.02.07 for food @ delicious by Ms. Read. Since we are still very full & it's tea time, we only ordered 1 dessert & 2 drinks. As you can see, I ordered the Pavlova again but this time, having it with my dear dear hubby (^-^). The dessert is superb and we finished it even though our stomach have no room left. However, the milk shakes tat we ordered are too sweet for us. It's like drinking sugar water. You can see how Gerald is playing with the milk shake coz not too nice to gulp down. I still think that McD milkshake is better than this and the price is 3 times the McD price.

For the above scrap, I used eva sparkling paper, Kath Love Choc tower, ksk designs-grunge city journal, TCO Pretty Enuf alpha and Shabby Princess Kritsty staple & frame.

And since we can't finish the milkshake, this is wat we did with the milkshake to indicate it's too sweet to consume.

Brunch @ Dragon - i

Post Dated CNY blog

We got back from our long KK CNY trip on 25.02.07. Our 2nd day back in KL plan was to head to 1U to feast. This is because while my hubby was away working in Doha, I went out with frens to shop & eat So, when Gerald is back, my target is to bring him to those places with yummy food.

We got up quite early that morning but he was busy checking the car. By the time we got ready, it's already 12 noon. The 1st place we went was the Dragon-i where they serve 'siu loong bao' , 'La Mian' and all kind of chinese food. We were so hungry that we ordered fried rice, 'siu loong bao', Cold pig troter, meat & vege wan ton soup & 1 dim sum. I was so hungry until forgot to take photos of the food and Gerald but to eat when the food was served. End result? Satisfying tummy......

Gerald managed to capture my hungry & greedy look while eating & also the dishes we ordered as below.

For the scrap above, I use mjv tropical dreams kits mixed with Miss Mint Candy fairway journal & jcrowley-greenpint-charm.

Photoshop craze

Thanks to Paper Moons, I manage to do this lovely library card today. Those who want to have a try, can go to her site and read her blog. She also give nice freebies as well.
Since I am still not very familiar with photoshop (just know basic), it took me 2 hours to get this coz I do not have eyelets and big clip. So, I have to modify from existing one to get the right size and effect.

The result? Very satisfying for me.... even now I am still very proud of myself *LOL*. All thanks to

Formula 1 ~ Bahrain Race

Been waiting for this race and all of a sudden, RTM 2 decided to cancel the live telecast and postponed until 1am on 16.04.07. Nevertheless, I manage to watch it tru the webcam of my hubby's tv in Doha.... Yup, it's tru MSN webcam and Skype although not very clear, but the sound is vy clear with Gerlad being my broadcast ( ^-^)

This time, Massa have pole position again and Kimi is 3rd with Lewis Hamilton & Alonso 2nd & 4th. So, I am very 'kang cheong' on the start of the race. Scared that Alonso will cut tru Massa & Kimi. Anyhow, Alonso did manage to overtake Kimi to 3rd place but on the 1st pit stop, Kimi is back to 3rd place.

As for hte 2nd pit stop, we are happy too early b4 Lewis pitted. Tot that Ferari will have 1,2 position but Lewis is really good. He manage to over take Kimi and back to 2nd place.
End result was Massa 1st, Hamilton 2nd & Kimi 3rd (Yeah!!!) .... So, wat happen to Alonso.... ke ke ke... he kena over take by Nick Heidfeld and he is 5th place *LOL* I never like him much tat's y so happy....

So, in the end, I am left with eagerness to watch the rerun at 1am but my eyes won't cooperate with me, so, was asleep after 15 mins into the race. Nevertheless, Kimi is tied with Hamilton & Alonso now..... the next race will be very exciting and also 2007 F1 race is more interesting now : )

Yee Sang fever

I love Chinese New Year alot. Not just because of the ang pow (used to get) but also because Yee Sang will be available throughout the month. There is alot of type available now, with the most common is the 7 Choy Yee Sang ( 7 color yee sang) and to the most expensive Abalone Yee Sang. But my favourite is the Suet Li Yee Sang. I love the fresh taste of the pear that replace the radish and sengkuang.

So, how many rounds of Yee Sang did I had? Let's see .....

  1. Team lunch at Esquire Kitchen, had 7 Choy Yee Sang but it was awful. It taste too sweet and the ingredient are mostly the pickled type.
  2. Me & Gerald had it with dad, mum & bro on Chor 9, where I had Salmon Yee Sang from Tai Thong.
  3. Had the 7 Choy Yee Sang with frens (SJI Reunion)
  4. Ta pau Sushi King Yee Sang to bring home after visit Violet.
  5. Chor 15, last chance of Yee Sang; bought Overseas Suet Li Yee Sang. I must say that their portion of Yee Sang is getting smaller as compare to tai Thong.

So, all together I had 5 rounds of Yee Sang. Yummylicious ..... Can't wait for next year now

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of Oolong tea

I've got this from my hubby forwarded mail. I find it a very motivational and life changing story that each of use could use.

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of Oolong tea…You will never look at a cup of Oolong the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed
eggs, and in the last she placed Oolong tea. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the Oolong out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."

"Carrots, eggs, and Oolong tea," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off
the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the Oolong. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently.
The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The
Oolong tea was unique, however. After they were in the boiling water , they had changed the water color and taste.

"Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a Oolong tea?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become
hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the Oolong tea? The tea actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like
the tea, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a Oolong tea?

As for myself, I would not want to be an egg because it is so scarry. By the end of the day, our heart & spirit has harden.

Easter celebration

Yes, today is Easter! A day to celebrate for the Lord has risen. I dedicate todays blog to my church, Eleventh Mile Cheras Lutheran Church, EMCLC.

Christian all over the world are celebrating this great news with joyful heart after the Good Friday where the Lord was crucified and died for us, so that we can be forgiven of our sin and able to go to heaven.

Today my church is celebrating Easter with Joyful worship, followed by angelic songs from Harmony Choir and Easter message by Rev. Dr. Lee Yip Mun.

After the worships, we have Tea Fellowship at the church compound where roast pork, salted vege and congee was served with eggs.

And the below verses I got it from the pamphlet of today's itenary

Because He Lives
I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives
all fear is gone;
Because I know
He holds the future,
And life is worth the living
just because He lives.

"I know that my Redeemer lives." ~ JOB 19:25 NIV
