Holidays over! back to work!

Back to office today! So Sien, after a long holiday...

Looking back, I didnt actually do a lot of things.. mostly sleep & rest at home, went movie marathon at 1U (two movies in a day), & joined the usual group of TC *short form for tham chiak* members from FF gym to the historic city Melaka for good food.

Its really not a good choice to visit Melaka on a public holiday! All the restaurants are crowded with ppl. All these ppl are willing to queue outside the shop under the hot sun for dunno how long just for the food... Aiyoh... That's why we missed the best 'lap lap kai fun'in melaka, the shop just opposite OCBC, & have to settled for the 2nd best in town. And its a relief when we didnt see a queue outside the satay shop. The pineapple sauce is really nice. We then decided to let our stomach takea break, so we went to a newly opened shopping mall. Actually the main purpose is to get away fromthe hot sun, & enjoy the free air-con, hehe, in the end, everybody got something.. (hai, what to do, nike got sales, & it just looked too tempting). Initial plans for dinner is satay celup, but alas, the queue is there again, & this time with umbrellas under the rain..omg.. So, we decided to turn around & had portugese food for dinner instead. Hmm, I would say the best I had is the fruit juice from a road-side stall just beside tan kim hock shop, kekeke.

Now, just lepak2 in office for two days, then its weekend again! The much anticipated event of this weekend.. David Tao concert in Bukit Jalil this Sat!!! woo hoo hoo...just cant wait...& someone is coming back next Monday!!! ;D

the making of... tau foo fah

Since I have a long 5-days holiday, with not much things to do, so after a lazy afternoon nap, I went to ah sek's house to learn how to make the tau foo fah!!! When I reached his house, Ah Sek, the tff sifu was waiting for me with all the ingredients ready, hehe... Under the sifu strict & patience guidance, *those who knew ah sek will know how strict he is :D & the fact that he is a tuition teacher* ....tadaaaa.... here is the results

Cant believe it! Tff is ready in about 1.5 hours... Altho my sifu said I already took too much time, but then im excused since this is the first time =) Im not praising myself here, coz the credits goes to the sifu & also the recipe owner, the tff standard is really upto par with the nice tff stalls out there... texture is extra soft with nice rich soy bean smell...

p/s: wanna take this opportunity to thank the sifu for being patience with me.... who seldom got her hands dirty in the kitchen, kekeke...

Just eat, eat & eat

CB came back last weekend, & since our common interest is *FOOD* :D we spend the whole week mostly searching for good food, not forgetting to do the necessary chores also lah, like looking for lightings for my new house, & property hunting =)

Here come the list of what we had... =)
  • pho hoe vietnamese restaurant @ the curve
  • the prawn claypot rice @ damansara
  • Daorae korean grill @ Sri Hartamas
  • Alexis @ Bangsar
  • Vietnam Kitchen in USJ
  • Homecook steamboat (with the famous pig stomach soup)
  • DU hokkien mee (definitely better than Jalan 222 one)
  • Just Thai @ 1-Utama (Phad Thai & the tom yam soup are the best!)
  • Tiramisu @ Suchan Deli, opposite UH

Daorae Korean BBQ...

@ Alexis, Bangsar... the milk shake is delicious, mee siam is so-so only

steamboat at YW's house... followed by drinking sessions =) Sharlene's recipe for the Tanduay Rhum (products from the Philippines) cocktails is really nice! Everybody likes it!
p/s: sorry, no pixs of the steamboat, coz the camera girl too busy eating till she forgot to take the most important pictures, kaka
pp/s: the sunset pix is taken on the way to YW's house :)

Suchan Deli's Tiramisu... drooling... drooling... i especially love the nuts on top & the strawberry sauce.. but its quite expensive, one piece cost me RM9.35

Im goin to be very hardworking at the gym for the next two weeks, & you should know why :p
