Sibu Kampua Mee 寺巫干盘面

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food. My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

 

Christmas Dinner Celebration | Little Cottage, Penang

First of all, I would like to apologize to MnY blog's owner (Camus and myself) for publishing a poor quality photos. As mentioned in "About Us", the purpose of creating MnYfoodtalk.com is to share anything that is related to food. We will not only share "good" food but also "bad" food. Either "bad in taste", "bad in service", "bad in price" or anything else. Today, we are going to share our year 2010 Christmas dinner celebration experience here.

 

Baked Durian Cheese Cake Recipe

"Is this a durian cheesecake? A piece of durian cheesecake in Continental bakery cost RM7++." My brother ask me this question when I pass him a durian crepe cake that I made few weeks ago. "Do you think durian can match with cheese cake? Not sure how will it tastes." A sentence made by Camus's mom when she ate the durian butter cake that I baked few weeks ago. With the questions and statements out from them, I have a strong believed that I must bake a durian cheese cake. To satisfy my baking desire and answer them with actual result. Due to last minutes decision of making this cake, I have no time to look into my own recipe book, hence I search the recipe from internet. I got it from Kitchen Corner, I have a confident that the recipe I get from this blogger will work well after read through her blog for quite sometimes. She is from Singapore and I found her blog during I surf for baking blog. Thanks Grace for the recipe. Ingredients:For the base:200g digestive biscuits100g butter, melted For the filling:500g cream cheese80g caster sugar220g durian flesh3 eggs (medium size, total about 160g)90ml milk1 tbsp + 1/4 tsp cornstarch Method:For the base:1.Stir all ingredients until combined.2.Press mixture into base. Set aside. For the filling:1.Beat cream cheese, sugar until smooth.2.Beat in durian.3.Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.4.Beat in milk and cornstarch until blended. 5.Steam baked at 150C for 30 minutes (I used smaller cake pan) or until light brown.6.Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Chill in fridge for 5 hours or overnight. I would say that the durian cheesecake tasted superb with creamy and smooth texture. I would strongly recommend this recipe to all of you. But due to I do not blend the durian, it effected the texture. I would suggest to blend the durian first if you prefer a very smooth texture of cake.

 

香港,澳门,珠海,广州,深圳 六天五夜 行 (第四章)

锵锵锵!第四天啦!来看看今天逛了那里吧... 25/10/2012 8:40 宝树堂店一大早把我们带到宝树堂店,看看介绍员把自己的手烫在热烘烘的粗铁条后,马上涂上他们的宝树堂。这也不是我们第一次来到宝树堂店,它也是中国知名的药膏,适用在被烫伤的皮肤上,涂后有着冰凉的感觉,有着不错的疗效作用。由于家里还剩着,我们也没多买。这家的介绍员也没那么讨人厌,不买也没派"小鬼"来缠身。 等待其他团友的同时,我们买了龟苓膏糖。糖果口感QQ的,我们都喜欢。也在这里买了龟苓膏来吃,虽然没什么特别,一罐RMB10就当作是享受吧! 25/10/2012 9:55 丝绸厂又是一间丝绸厂,我们几年前到中国苏州旅行时已去过了。这里可看到蚕宝宝出生直到长大的过程,再得知怎么把蚕吐出来,制造丝绸。看看过程是瞒不错的,但没心买的我们,就是觉得又在这里浪费时间了。等啊等啊,你不买,别人要买啊,就这样大半天完蛋了。

IMG_20130702_093122Coffee, has taken away my heart. Sometime it make me happy, sometime it make me high, but sometime it make my heart pumping at wrong frequency. I wish I can drink it everyday, with a set of toast spread with kaya, together with 2 half boil eggs without pepper and soy sauce, so I can have the pure egg taste, to welcome my day! Coffee, contains caffein that has stimulating effects, is not good to consume daily. Being addicted to coffee recently, I decided to continue addict to it at this moment. Last weekend, we visit a cafe located at Raja Uda, to try their Affogato. We arrived there in the morning at 11am but they have not starting their business yet. We come back later at 2pm, at this time the shop is empty, but after we put an order, more and more people coming in for their tea break.

Coffee formula

Besides coffee, they serve other beverage too. We ordered this Affogato, an espresson with vanilla ice cream. Espresso is very bitter but when you eat with ice cream, it is sooooooo gooooooooood...I love it! The snow man ice cream is too cute and innocent to kill by me, but he died meaningful as he changed Ms. Bitter Espresso life become sweet at the end.

Birdy style Affogato (RM8.90)

Macchiato (马车倒), what a pantang name for this coffee? A bitter coffee, which is espresso with milk form is good too, small in cup. Coffee art seems like telling you his bitter life as a teddy bear...

Macchiato (RM7)

They are famous with waffles too, we had this waffle with peanut butter and nuts as topping. To me, it is a bit too dry. I should try their waffle with ice-cream topping.
