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!

Happy Belated Mother’s Day! Moms shouldn’t be allowed to cook in the kitchen yesterday :P Where did you bring the special one for a good treat? My mom always wanted simplicity and nothing extravagant. I baked the same cheesecake for her and dad brought us downtown for lunch. Since mom doesn’t want to eat in restaurant ;o we drove around aimlessly for 1/2 hour because a lot of coffeeshops are closed that day -_-;
Finally we found a parking lot, and headed for the ang chew mee suah (red wine rice noodle) stall I spotted last week. Again we came face to face with a closed stall.. the owner is away on vacation :(
Next door, Fatty Boy chicken rice looks pretty decent ^.^ We decided to have a try.
Besides chicken rice, they also have vinegar pork, which is one of mom’s favourite.
The roast chicken is de-boned and has lots of meat. It is so tender and smooth too. This is the most delicious chicken I have had! I’ve changed my favourite chicken rice stall from Goh Thew Chik to Fatty Boy :P
The vinegar pork came with a heap of lean meat (which dad requested). The pork is not as tender as lak tiau lor’s, which literally falls off the bone. Nonetheless, this gravy with a tinge of sourness is better and really delicious! Yummy~ I drench my rice with it because it’s soooo good. (A tastier version of pork trotter is in Butterworth).
Braised egg and tau kua
Dad was a bit skeptical after the lady owner said everything cost RM24.90. With the portions served, we thought it would’ve cost more. Before leaving, they carried out a tray of freshly roast chickens. Business must be good :)
Fatty Boy Chicken Rice
Along Burmah Road, just after the junction to Kedah Road

Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. I was caught up in a lot of school work and tests before balik kampung for CNY :)
I hope everyone had a good Chinese New Year, celebrating the festive season with your family, distant relatives and friends. Chinese New Year is also a celebration of delicious food together with loved ones! Here are the foods I enjoyed throughout this week of indulgence :b
Som tham – Thai salad of green papaya. One of the dishes I had at reunion dinner with my godpa and godmom. Rice Restaurant, 1926 Heritage Hotel, Burmah Road.
Steamed cod fish in soy sauce. Reunion dinner with grandpa, aunts, uncles and cousins at Starview Restaurant, Burmah Road.
Lunch at home with mom, dad and sis.
Canned abalone (blek) and thick mushroom (yummy!). Mom made the stock one day earlier before adding other ingredients. The stock had dried scallops and mussels. Then mom added star anise to follow restaurant style. Great job! I must say it is very delicious.
Curry chicken and
Sui kow which dad ordered. Mom par boiled it in clear soup, for dinner.
CNY Day 1
This is my most look-forward-to meal every Chinese New Year. My close aunts and uncles, and cousins get together for dinner at grandpa’s house after visiting extended families in the afternoon.
My fav – sea cucumber and mushroom with broccoli
My fav but lazy to peel – big prawns coated in sweet & sour sauce
My least fav – steamed chicken ;D
Grandpa’s must have – soup with mussels, pak ko (lotus seeds) and beancurd sheets. No fatt choy (dried black sea moss) this year because grandpa was too late to buy. Hehe.
I had a wonderful Chinese New Year with family. Loads of cookies, angpow and laughter. Sadly all has to come to an end. I have to head back to uni tomorrow and I have skipped two days of classes. Heehee
I wish everyone happy feasting and may the new year be a prosperous one with plenty of joy and happiness!

I apologize I haven’t been updating. I have returned to my uni from semester break. My parents drove me down to KL and with my well equipped knowledge thanks to all the blogging foodies, I brought them hunting for all the good foods here :P Food posts coming up.
Yesterday my coursemates and I hit the street party countdown at Sungai Wang. People were spraying snow confetti all over each other. There was a concert too but I’m not familiar with Chinese artistes. My friends were there hoping to catch Justin (singer from HK) but all we get is the big lcd screen. The only artiste I recognize is the Malaysian Idol Danielle lor ;) 20 seconds to the new year, the countdown began and at the stroke of midnight, we were presented with an amazing display of fireworks.
Digi yellowman not missing out! Unfortunately the line was pretty crappy that night.
Happy New Year to all floggers! May 2008 bring plenty of happiness to you and family, and numerous more food adventures that satisfies your tummy ;D
My greatest new year gift is a newly installed hotspot at my dorm! I can access it from my room because I live right above and well within the signal coverage ^_^ *peace sign* Now I can easily blog whenever I like. Akekeke~

With this 1 week holiday, I will not let it pass quickly by revising for test 2… um, I mean lazying around at home. I am experimenting with recipes I found in the internet. Yesterday, I made ping pei (snow skin) mooncake :D
The steps are easy to follow but sometimes I doubt the outcome because I’ve never seen the process. I made a number of mistakes but thankfully they can be overcome. I don’t have mooncake mould so I used muffin tins :P
Strictly for own consumption because they don’t look nice, has uneven thickness and quality is debatable. Hehe *paiseh* The skin is green tea flavoured, inside is red bean paste. The green tea powder I bought at a bakery store has an intense flavour. Thus, the result of the snow skin tastes like real green tea, nice :)
Broken money bag filled with ground peanuts, and a bruised mooncake. Keke
Last Sunday, we also bought “rea”‘ mooncakes from Hei Yue Thong. Jusco card holders receive 10% discount and on that day, they have additional 5% discount for a few selected mooncakes.
We chose non-traditional flavours though, like this Japanese Green Tea with Milk mooncake. Very very yummy! ^.^ Also bought Chocolate Cream Cheese, Tiramisu, Pu Er Tea and Pandan Lotus flavour. Everything cost approximately RM39 only, and they give really nice boxes.
