The first time I did Otak-otak ( is a cake made of fish meat and spices) was without the betel leaf (daun kaduk) . But now I have plenty of betel leaf at the backyard, remind me I have to use it to make Otak-otak again. This time, I made it into individual serving using ramekin, kind of fun enjoy Otak-otak using ramekin.
We went to Taiping
during Raya holidays recently, and had many nice foods and visited few
interesting places, I hope to quickly compile those photos and share with you soon. And
we had an interesting plate of difference style of Char Kuey Teow in Taiping.
Their fried Kuey Teow is wet style (slight watery) and with fish balls. We like
this slightly wet style of fried Kuey Teow and I just copycat it today.
Last week I was so busy, because I have to make three Birthday cakes (all my niece and nephew Birthday mainly fall on August and Sept). And this Barbie Doll Cake took two days to complete. This cake was specially for my niece who celebrate her perfect 10th Birthday last week. And I was pleased with the result and all my family was impressed with my first Barbie doll cake ^_^.
Last week, I had a busy week. We went a short trip to jalan-jalan dan makan-makan (actually we went to Taiping ,will update soon) and also arrange to send my last house helper go back home. After 16 years of life with a helper at home, this time I decided not to employ any more helper. Since my kids already grown up, I don't need a helper anymore. Also a good time start to train my kids to be more responsible and take part of house cleaning activities. And I am glad to see them started to wash their own serving dishes, helping in vacuum, arrange their own bed, and etc. Anyway, I will be getting busy than last time, and might not be able in blogging so often. Sorry to my blogger friend if I couldn't visit you so often.
Ok, come back to this post. The other day I saw a blogger 孤傲的王子 posted a famous burger shop in KL where their charcoal burger is very popular until long Q to get this burger. I will not travel that far and Q for a burger, so I decided to make it at home.
Wishing to my Malay blogger friends and readers Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri/ Eid-ul-Fitr 2013 and Happy Holidays to the rest !!
I also want to take couple of days off from blogging and go jalan jalan dan makan makan (travelling and food hunting) ^_^ .
This strawberry cream cheese dessert was served at a Birthday party we attended some time back. My kids love this dessert very much. So I never shy to ask for the recipe, here is the recipe that I obtained from my hubby's friend. This is perfect dessert to be served in any party.
I can't remember how long I did not eat this Sar Kok Liew (yambean fritters). And I couldn't remember I ate this Sar Kok Liew at here (Klang valley) or Ipoh. But I can still remember the good taste of this Sar Kok Liew which is slightly sweet from the yambean used.
I was planning to bake a cempedak butter cake but when I saw this cempedak swiss roll in this post, I change my mind ! Now cempedak is in season, this is the best time to enjoy cempedak. Anyway, I am sure will bake a cempedak butter cake later.
Every time during Ramadan month (Muslim fasting month), I am sure craving for a good Rendang ( I have two version here, rendang chicken and beef rendang ). The other day, my blogger friend Yan who is staying in Ipoh Perak, sent me a link and asked me to cook this Rendang Daging Tok ( a special dry rendang dish from Perak state) . And I told her I will immediately cook it, but too bad I can't send it over for her to taste my rendang ^_^.
According to here, in old time, Rendang Tok considered a special food that only served to Royal family. "Tok" refer to those renowned peoples.
