I’m Full! *burps*

17 02 2009

Hey foodies! Sorry if you’ve been expecting photos or at least some words from me. But I haven’t touched this space for a long time. Sincere apology from me. I went through a tough time with family matters and I just didn’t have the heart to blog during that period. Sad to say I’m not resuming with new posts but I am happy to have formed friendships through this blog. It has been such a pleasure to have the occasions to meet some of you who shares the passion for food and all forms of food porn. Photography is still a big part of me, therefore I have a photoblog to continue with photo posting. It doesn’t revolve around food anymore but I still need to eat ;) so there will be some food related photos or wet market hunts (I like the commotion and fishy smell!). I’m glad to have been able to share my food journey with all you readers and I hope you guys have enjoyed it too!

Autumn Hokkaido Fair

31 10 2008

pumpkins

The Autumn Hokkaido Fair is ongoing from 29 Oct – 12 Nov at Isetan, Suria KLCC. There are lots of Japanese products featured, fresh and processed. Needless to say, most of the items are so expensive ;(

noodles

ohagi

Ohagi

daifuku

Palm sized daifuku! Sadly I hope to see them shaped into nice intricate motifs like I’ve seen on tv.

frozen dessert

Some frozen dessert. I think you just have whack it into the microwave to get a nice treat after work :)

Autumn Hokkaido Fair

grilled squid section

One of the reason I was dragged here is the aroma that drifted from this station! Oh my.. smells so good.. I could detect it 2 floors down! ;D

grilling squid

grliing scallops

Frozen scallops thrown directly onto the grill :o That didn’t stop me from buying though. It costs RM8 for 3 pieces of big scallops about the size of 2 50¢ coins, and I’ve never tried scallops with this size ever. So it’s worth a try for me ^.^

scallop

Scallops in teriyaki sauce or they call it hotate kushi. I didn’t like the fact that they dump the freshly grilled and sizzling hot scallops into a plastic container. I recommend immediately open it, find the nearest food court and indulge!

Yummy~





Sight, Sound & Taste of Diwali in Brickfields

26 10 2008

I adore everything under the category of Indian food. The sweets, the snacks, the banana leaf rice, the curry, the rotis, the chutney. Yum~ In this time of Deepavali festive mood, I just had to take a stroll along the length of Jalan Tun Sambanthan :D Brickfields is a bust of activities with the street lined up with stalls selling everything from muruku to sarees to cater for this festival.

homemade cookies

It is so refreshing to see striking colours in the form of food, clothing, greeting cards and decorations adorn the area. Hip and upbeat Bollywood music fills the air. The crowd, bargaining and walking away with new items in their hands tells you “yup, Deepavali is here”.

Leong Ya Restaurant

24 10 2008

sauce

There are 3 Leong Ya Restaurants in the vicinity, all operated by the same family. One on the first row with air-conditioning, and the other two have bigger space sans the comfort of air-cond. They are at the corner in the second row and at the far end. Why so many eh? Doesn’t matter, as long as they serve their signature yummy ji pao gai ^oo^

yong tau foo

Their yong tau foo is pretty good too. They come drenched in a sweet thickly sauce. We ordered a mix and each reasonably sized piece is RM1.

paper wrapped chicken

Hi, who’s in there?

paper wrapped chicken

Paper wrapped chicken! Oh oh.. yummyliciousness unfolds! Despite the glue-ey mess I captured in picture here, the gravy is excellent in flavour and makes me drool when the aroma hits the nose. It has a hint of chinese rice wine and tastes slightly of ginger. The chicken is slowly cooked in the package, absorbing all the flavour and keeping the meat tender. Well worth the price of RM 2.60 per parcel.

mix veg

Mix stir fried vegetables. Again they use chinese rice wine which works wonder with this kind of dish.

3 treasures egg

Three-treasured steamed egg. I’m not sure what it’s called, I’m simply naming it :P. It’s a super smooth steamed egg with salted duck egg and century-egg mixed in. Very delicious but the soy sauce is too salty.

2nd Penang Flogger Gathering

17 10 2008

Edelweiss

A delayed post from the 2nd Penang Flogger gathering at Edelweiss Cafe! (Sorry to all who were expecting this post like.. um almost 3 weeks ago >.<) We have to thank Lingzie for making the event happen. Also to the other sponsors of goodies – CK Lam, Criz Lai (lucky draw) and Gill & Jason :) It was truly a night centered on food and mingling among bloggers, getting to know each other at a more personal level. The best moment is when everyone started clicking away their camera when a plate arrives at a table!
