Disappoinment from Secret Recipe - Aug' 08

(another post written in Aug' 08, wonder why I did not post up again...
below are the comments after we tried the foods on last yr...
it may approve to be better, or it may even get worse...
I do not know, and will not want to try again in anyway.... )

11 Aug' 08.. Stewpig suddenly craved for MeatBall Pasta so much...
We went to DOME/ Manila Place and etc.. none of em serves it...
we ended up having our dinner at Secret Recipe...
He kept telling me Secret Recipe has the best Lamb Shank..
Here I tried it... and it was "omg-failed" !!

the sauce for the meatball pasta ain't tasty as well...
compared to the meatball I used to buy from Pharan Market in Aussie.. no way to compare..

Lamb Shank supposed to be soft and tender..
this one far to describe by these words.. it was hard instead...
I doubt the meals here were prepared ahead from their HQ.. they just microwaved it before served..
from the attitude of the fellow workers in Secret Recipe...
you can entirely see the 'laziness' of em..
with this kind of working style..
having over-cooked your foods is an Expected-Thing..
even the Mashed Potato is feeling a bit hard too...
I was getting upset and upset while eating....

we were planned to try out the kaya toast at Tanjung Tokong... since many bloggers said it was so best...

I said Again because it was the 2nd time we went up to there... but still never got to try out...

daddyz buRfday in 2008, The Sire Museum Restaurant

this post is regarding Daddy-Aun burfday in 2008....
I thought I've blogged this out !!
in facts, I did not... >.<>The Sire Museum for daddy buRfday last yr, 24th July' 08...
this was also the day when my fellow ah-yah-kah-jeh/ je-fu/ tai loh met mrStewpig...

I supposed the customers around that nite should have cursed us very much..
people keen to go there, to enjoy the quiet atmosphere...
have a little chit-chat, and eat the expensive foods...
but our long table in the middle of the 'house' just SO Noisy, like how we always Used-To-Be...
people might get annoyed... but we just enjoyed ~ ^^

This Museum is belongs to Mr Yap Chor Yee..
can see alot of antique displaying arounn d...
I guess some of them are for selling.... are they?
that, nite we didn't go up to level 2 & 3 but just browsed along the ground and the house is beautiful...
I would like to visit again during day time for coffee~

to be honest, I've forgotten all the foods that we ordered that nite..
unable to mention the name as well as the feedback...
but here are some pics...

Mushroom Soup

Tomato Soup

Chicken Breast.. Lemongrass, I supposed?


Lamb-shank...
I think this is not bad... the lamb is kinda tender...
if I'm not mistaken... the lamb cooked in a very strong flavour, thus, you will feel 'er' after eaten too much...

ko ko ordered this rm 119 (before charges) Steak...
but no doubt, it's nice !!!

some fish...

Seafood Cabonara...
the pasta is so-so...

burfday cake for Daddy...

the ladies...
happee buRfday 72 hao lou dao~ ^^ we love you always~

Cayden'z 1st buRfday, 26-8-09

browsed tru my list of 'Edit Posts' and realized I have at least more than 30 posts,
which I had uploaded the pics,
but with no writing... some of them were pending since 2008... -_-"

I feel bad !


so here I have some explanation to excuse myself...
working life, occupy most of my time...
I can no more sitting in front of my laptop, updating my blog every-single-day like I used to..
during Aussie tym, I would even post up 3 blogs in a day...
now, I still need to sit in front of the stupid laptop every-week-day,
but not my SOnyVaio,
and not allowed to blog that often no more... -w-O-r-K-i-nG...
nah~ :'(

some of the posts are, 'CNY', 'x-Mas gift exchange' and even my Kuching tRip in last Sept...
so wanted to share em out but l-a-z-i-n-e-s-s is crawling over my mind...
until I saw this pending post, with the subject title " Cayden Burfday Celebration"
omg.. I feel REALLY Bad...
he is turning 2 yrs old in less than 30 days...
this post was outdated for more than 300 days...

I feel ashame...
I can ignore the other posts.. but not this !

here it goes...

Je je had a buffet dinner at her house to celebrate Cayden's 1st buRfday... dated 26th Aug' 08
apparently, the attendees were all je & jefu s' frens/ colleagues/ relatives and also his yee yee, my frens.. :P

this photo shud be taken at 6ish.. before the arrival of fellow guests...

due to too busy... I forgot to take a pic when the house was full-of-guests...
the tables were extended to the 'middle' of the road...
to the compound of je's neighbour house..
those adults brought along their kids...
pretending they're Cayden's frens...
je's house became a little playground for them.. :P
je also prepared alot of party goodie bags for all the kids... as well as doorgift for every guest...
( varieties of animal stiching key chain, with WinniethePooh stickers, printed Cayden's buRfday on top )

a huge PigguieFarm Longan & Lychee Cake for Cayden... ( cake from Jenny Cakehouse )


je je arranged this little family to wear MrHappee T-shirt together... so sweet >.<

cake-cutting session...
Cayden seems liking this Red-Eggie so much...


a special guest of mine...
Jimmy.. so co-incidence that he has backed to Sarawak after 9-10 yrs in Aussie...
and visited Penang during end of Aug' 08..
I invited him to attend Cayden's burfday party.. :P

How i wish this luvly doggie is mine..
my fav dog... ah pek gao... *.*

see... he got SO Many Pressies...
Kiddo is-da-best...


the day after the party nite...
he was still that excited

he is always so delightful ^^
that is why everyone likes him so much ~ *muaRksSss


but being his toys... are a bit pity..
as he never know how to take care of anything, everything...
throw, hit, spoilt his or others' things are his hobby...

we brought him to Toy R' us that day..
wonder why he looked so serious huh...

he was watching this stupid Spongebob cartoon...
I was standing next to him..
can't help but kept laughing at the cartoon..
spongebob and frens went up to the beach and they appeared to become some 'real-things'..
spongebob itself became a piece of Sponge.. which mummies used for dishes-washing...
ha ha.. they're so ugly, so disgusting.. and a bit stupid...
I laughed till the kids aside kept staring at me... I still remember... *blush
looking back at his photos, and realized he has grown up a lot...
his face keeps changing.. but still...
he is very cute !!!!! ^^
let's see how je je gonna celebrate his 2nd buRfday...
xoxo

finally brought my family to Murni for supper ^^

with no reason, I just lub Murni very much..
since the 1st time Yik Chun brought me here on last year..
just when everyone is getting so sien with here...
and the newbies me.. keen to lub it so much...
pls bare with me.. as I never stay in kl... and all the so-called 'buddies' never bring me here in the passed few yrs... !@!#$%%^@!

I thought daddy would love the foods, thus I insisted to come this round...
I didn't manage to bring stewpig here in the last 2 trips too...
and 1 more thing is...
there's NO way to find a mamak with over 100 tables in Penang...
and ridiculous thing is.. each table is occupied and fulled with varieties of foods & drinks..
at the same time, there're many ppl standing around to look for tables sumore...

before we settled down...
daddy, stewpig and ko ko saw those colour colour drinks from every table around...
told me must order for them...

no doubt, the drinks are still very nice..
but the sizes had reduced bitz...

we ordered 2 MAngo & 2 Ribena...
they have what you want..
why said so? ( when I asked em, what flavour do you have, the boi asked me back, what flavour do you want? )


I missed the Roti Beckham & Roti Hawaii for a year d..
can't wait to have it again...
tot daddy must have like em too...

but when I had the 1st spoonful bite, I reckon, they might have changed the ingredient d..
the burger meat and Tuna are not as nice as before...
the burger Pattie used to be really 'tight' and a lot... and now.. the meat is like so 'broken', lose lose an neh..

but the overall taste, is still there... still nice..

Roti Beckham, Roti Hawaii - one with Burger Pattie, Cheese & Sausages, one with Tuna, Cheese & Sausages...

they differenciate the Roti by setting the sauce putting on right or left...
Signature Mee Raja...
it looks so 'pek si '.. the white mee can hardly attract people to think it tastes nice...
white thing is always far from my liking... normally darker colour stuff will attract me more...
especially the red stuff which looks so spicy... *yum yum
but this, impressed me... ^^

Maggie Mee Goreng...
people keen to come here for some special stuff which not offering at other mamaks...
wut to do... when je je insisted to order a Maggie Mee Goreng.. just bcuz she-very-wanted-to-eat !
and it's a wise choise... as the Maggie Mee Goreng is delicious... the first dish to clear on the table.. :P

Garlic Cheese Naan... served with Dalca, Curry and Condensed Milk
such a big portion... apparently, we failed to finish it.. the roti is so thick... would really fill up our tummy kie !
and I forgot ko ko will only fancy Original Plain Naan...
Signature Claypot Bi Tai Bakthis is also a must on the order list...
yes it's a MAMAK... but it sells this Chinese Hawker Food too...
besides this, variesties of western foods, Sizzling thingie & Pasta are available too..
and heard they 're nice...
alright, back to the claypot...
this is nice... with minced chicken ( i supposed ) and raw egg on top...
once it served, stir stir and the egg will be getting cooked... *weEe
the ju kok is actually the Sambal... very hot indeed...
backed to Michael ( his name is actually Jackson, but Kimmie used to call him Michael since high school, and it influenced my dad and stewpig too ) 's house...
this monster is SO Active, SO excited, So happee to run here and there..
mOnster always active at nite.. midnite... middle of the nite... -_-"
