Deep Fried ‘Kuih Keladi’

My camera’s back and I’m ready to roll :p

Dad’s friend’s wife (huhh…. any shorter term ah? How about aunty?) made this last week and gave some to us. Apparently, we tried to figure out what are them and it turns out to be a type of snack made from deep fried minced yam with breadcrumbs.

She actually is a Taiwanese who married to Malaysia and occasionally, she’ll make some finger food or organise a steamboat party and invite us over. She loves durian and ‘petai’ (hahaha) and when my dad told her that I don’t fancy both, she said, “You call yourself a Malaysian??” Lol…

Ok, ok, back to the ‘kuih keladi’ (yam cake). Very nice finger food, I can’t stop myself from having the 2nd serving and then 3rd, 4th, 5th and so on… heh. The only problem – it’s a bit greasy though. I’m not sure whether it’s a type of Taiwanese food or she just made it according to her preference.

‘Lolo’, Anyone?

Chinese New Year celebration will end in one week time and I guess most people are already back to work. Hope everyone had a great celebration.

I used to go to ‘pasar malam’ aka night market with a bunch of friends on Thursday. These pictures were taken a week before CNY (pardon the picture quality as they were taken using my camera phone) and we saw a new stall, selling ‘lolo’, some kind of dessert similar like ice kacang or cendol but the texture of the shaved ice is smoother. And of course, more expensive too.

It’s hard to find ‘lolo’ in Ipoh. There’s one hawker stall at Tong Sui Kai selling but everytime we wanna have it, it’s closed. So, when my friends saw this stall, they quickly place their order.

The business is quite good as there are many people waiting for their order to be prepared. But you can see, the preparation table is a bit messy, though….

Finally, Kai Ching’s Yam Lolo topped with plenty of green jellies and costs about RM3.00. His comment? Refreshing! I didn’t try it myself as I’m quite full that night *sob*

One of Kai Ching’s pet dogs, Judy. Plump female Labrador. It looked like it’s smiling in this picture ^^

So, after lunch, we went to a furniture centre in Ipoh Garden South, just above my office because Kai Ching wanna look for a bigger shoe cabinet.

Just a brief view of the shop:

While they were busy looking for a suitable cabinet, I took a walk around myself and saw a set of dining table and chairs. I quite like it probably because it’s not very bulky, the chairs are comfortable and it’s enough for 6 people to sit closely to each other. But the price… Awww…

Another set, similar with previous but more expensive!

I would prefer the first set I saw, because I like the chairs’ design. After loitering at the shop for about 45mins, we left empty handed. No cabinets were suitable for Kai Ching. When we pass by E-Box Karaoke, I saw a vacancy notice:

I tot it sounds funny, so I took the picture of it. Aren’t the “situation” is more suitable to be replaced with “position”? 🙂
