Time flies, and it is going to November soon. Many of us, women start hunting for clothes for the year-end holiday trip, Christmas party, New Year party and all sorts of parties. Checking at the calendar, Chinese New Year is on the month of January 2014.  There will be plenty of events and functions along these last few months of the years.

Those are employed, have started to plan how to utilize the bonus.  Many shopping malls, boutiques and outlets are having great sales to attract customers.   Shopping at year-end sale always thrills me. I can think of so many reasons for me to buy clothes.

People who are always busy like me would opt to shop online, because shopping online saves time, cost and effort. That’s solely my own opinion. I love those online boutiques that provide free shipping, good quality of material, reasonable price and trendy fashions.

If you want to be traffic stopper and make people turn head at your stylist outfits, I would like to suggest Ezra to you.
Now you can also find their chic designs and stylish fashions at the online shopping site, Zalora Malaysia.

The best Mee Hoon Kueh (Hand-pulled noodles) in town

15:11 Yannie 15 Comments

I have been staying in this town since I was born. I have heard many people talking about this stall, which sells the best Mee Hoon Kueh in town, but I never tried it until a few weeks ago. Actually, I was recommended to try the Mee Hoon Kueh soup at this stall by a gym buddy of mine.

This stall is located at Jalan Tupai, on the way Pokok Assam. So sorry that I do not have the address of its location. The owner of this stall is 2007 Astro Classic Golden Melody singing competition champion.
The champion singer and his wife are the chefs of this stall.
 
After trying the food there for a few times, I know that the chefs would take quite a long time to get the order ready. So, I would always order the Chee Cheong Fun from their next stall to fill up our time and also tummies while waiting for our food to be served.
Next stall Chee Cheong Fun. Very yummy!
Here are the noodles that we can get from the champion singer's stall.
Fried prawn noodles. Super good!

Mee Sua soup. Not bad.

Fish Head rice vermicelli soup. Tasty!

Fried prawn Koey Teow. Delicious!

The very popular Mee Hoon Kueh soup.  Super delicious.
I rate all the food from this champion singer's stall as very good. Only if he can speed up the  preparation time, then it will be even better. My husband and children have started to feel fed up at waiting for the noodles. If you are in the rush, please ban this stall. If you have time, then you can try their different types of noodles there.

I have stopped baking for a few months and I suddenly got bitten again by the baking bugs yesterday.

I baked one tray 10 cupcakes only. 4 banana chocolate chips cupcakes and 6 chocolate chips cupcakes.

When I checked my blog archive, apparently I have baked these types of cupcakes before.


My daughters prefer banana chocolate chips from this bake. They said banana chocolate chips cupcakes are more tasty than chocolate chips cupcakes.


Here I share these two very simple and yummy cupcake recipes again.
