Time to go home…

We were in Kuching for two nights only and there was hardly time to do much really…other than going around to eat and before we knew it, it was time to pack up and go home.

I don’t know what got into them but it so happened that so many of my cousins bought me packets and packets of bee pang (fragrant rice)…

Gifts 1

…which are actually cakes made of rice bubbles with fried shallots added to give it its nice fragrance but these days, there are other flavours available, it seems. Another cousin gave me some of the bak koi (meat cake, which is actually steamed egg cake with meat and fried shallots added) that he made for our little gathering the first night Melissa and I were in Kuching…and somebody gave me the M&S shorties though I can’t exactly place my finger on who right now. Sigh!!! There can be no denying that I’m getting old and my memory is starting to fail me sometimes. Sobsssss!!!!!

Yet another cousin went some place for tea and he thought that I might love the scones…

Gift 2

…so he got me two to try. Ooooo….they were really very good even without the clotted cream and homemade fruit jam – I certainly would want more than two if ever I could lay my hands on more.

Remember Ma Baker? My cousin who’s into baking artisan breads? Well, she gave me some of her muffins…and also a bit of whatever bread that she had at hand.

Gifts 3

At the time of writing, I’ve yet to try them but no worries, when I get round to doing that, I certainly would blog about it. Then there was this cousin of mine, home in Kuching for the weekend from KL and she gave me those M&S biscuits to take home. I certainly do not seem to ever run short of a regular supply, eh? Hehehehehehe!!!!

Wait a minute! That’s not all, no siree…for there was yet another cousin of mine who promised to go and buy the nyonya kuihs…

Gifts 4

…early Monday morning so that they would be nice and fresh and I could take them all home to enjoy…and she managed to get some kee chang (plain dumplings) for my mum (She loves them!) as well.

Last but definitely not least, there were also those lovely cakes that my friend, Jimmy, gave me. We’ve finished all of them now and I was so engrossed in enjoying his carrot cake…

J's carrot cake

…that I almost forgot to snap a photo of it before it was all gone. Hehehehehe!!!!!! This was the last one we tried – his triple cheese butter cake…

J's TCBC

– parmesan and cream cheese in the cake and cheddar on top and it goes without saying that it was just as rich and as nice as all the rest. Yum! Yum!!!

Well, to whom it may concern, thank you for the gifts and thanks so much also for the treats and everything. It certainly was a great weekend getaway…and we do hope to do that again sometime. Ok…ok…no need to run and hide now! Muahahahahaha!!!!!

  1. Wow you received so many goodies, and rightfully so. You’re a wonderful person so it’s only natural that people want to do nice things for you. Triple cheese butter cake? That is interesting, I’ll have to make that soon and get my daughter’s opinion.

    Extra rich, nice…but I loved the exotic tastes of the salted egg and the chili prawn ones. Ooooo…thanks for your kind words.

  2. You are well loved! Kuching’s bee pang is very nice. Can u get that in Sibu too?

    I’m not too sure, may have seen them somewhere, maybe in the supermarts. You want? I think I can spare you one or two, so many. Just let me know where to send them to – in Sibu, that is. πŸ˜‰

  3. now see!! see how you are loved?? see how many things they have brought and bought for you to bring back to Sibu.. so please don’t always complain or even joke that nobody is giving you anything, hehehehe!! we should appreciate and be thankful for what we already have in life, which could be what many other unfortunate ones may have been deprived of, agree?? πŸ™‚

    Indeed, very true indeed! So nice, all those people giving me things. Ummm…how come I’m not getting any from you? You don’t like me kah? Muahahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€

    1. you also don’t like me either i guess~~
      muahahahahaha!! πŸ˜€

      I sent you pasta once – no feedback, probably didn’t like so, takut want to send you anything again, so high class punya tastebuds mah… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

  4. Extremely Blessed in Kuching, ARTHUR!! You are really one loveable guy.. how are you going to finish all those goodies?!! LOL…

    Slowly but surely… Hehehehehehe!!!! πŸ˜‰

  5. Lol…your cousins know you like to munch mah. So gv you so many packets la

    It’s hard to get good bee pang here. Fresh ones. Mom likes to eat. But I don’t.

    Oh? See, when free, I send one over to you…

  6. scones.. scones everywhere πŸ˜€ love those, but don’t know how to really appreciate the taste, maybe because I haven’t had the chance to try out more scones.

    You must have really rich buttery ones, so fragrant and nice even without the cream and jam. None in Sibu – they may have in some bakeries – not worth the calories. 😦

  7. STP, you are spoilt with so much goodies from everyone. I love the nyonya kuih & cakes .From your FB ,I understand that a male friend of yours bakes all those glorious cakes for you. He is indeed a talented baker. Yummy!!!!…Nom!!!…Nom!!!

    He most certainly is! Today, he baked a BIG red velvet for his colleague who’s retiring. His is simply the best, yet to find any that is as nice! Soooo jealous! Mine was so small. Hehehehehehe!!!!!

    1. Something is better than nothing. It is the thoughts that counts.

      Of course. I guess he wanted me to try all the rest that he gave me, a bit of each…all nice!

  8. Oh i love scones, quintessential item for afternoon tea. Did i just see some orange-koo-kueh instead of ang koo kueh? What’s the filling for orange ones?

    Peanut. Scones? Ooooo…all that butter isn’t good for you. Any good ones in Penang – come, send them over!!! Dijamin sampai hari esok, not a problem at all!

  9. Ooo…the triple cheesecake is delicious. I would love to give a try baking it some day.

    It was nice but I prefer the salted egg & chili prawn. Interesting, unusual, exotic…and tasted soooo good!

  10. When are you going to Kuching again? I be back next month. ;p

    I also have some bee pang brought over by my family when they came over few weeks ago.

    No plans so far. Probably not during the school holidays as the airfares can be quite expensive. 😦

  11. so much yummies! I am now having my MS chocolate digestives with milk as I blog hop! Nom nom nom.

    My favourite is still the all butter Viennese…

  12. wow…two nights in Kuching also can bring back so many things. I cannot imagine if you stay a week in Kuching. tsk tsk tsk.

    Bee Pang, same as Sibu’s “char mi”? I like char mi.

    Hahahahaha!!!! 30 kg per person, still room for more. πŸ˜€
    Sibu has something like this? Not too sure, never bothered to look for it here. Missus loves the ones from Kuching.

  13. You have eaten almost all the M&S cookies and biscuits. Tell me which are the ones you love most??

    All butter Viennese. Oooooo….you wanna send me some? Gotta look out for the postman now…wonder when he’ll show up! πŸ˜‰

  14. It’s too yummy till you almost forgot to take picture of it, isn’t it? !!! =]

    Not really. At first, I thought I didn’t want to take – after all, carrot cake is carrot cake…but in the end, I changed my mind.

  15. The scones looks like its calling for me… Kee chang. is that wat the red thing is called? my fav too!

    The red thing is ang koo. Kee chang is the triangular leaf-wrapped pulut dumplings but kosong and with alkaline added, giving it a light yellowish tint. Not for me, but my mum loves it – she eats it, dipped in sugar.

  16. Of all the foods, Kee Chang will always be one of my top 10 or maybe top 5 foods that want. Hehee. Especially the kacang ones.

    Anyways, happy weekend!

    You like? We go for the meat ones. Only my mum likes the kee chang so we make it a point to get for her when in Kuching – theirs nicer, not even sure if we can get them here. Happy weekend to you too!

  17. My dad loves that stuff so I ate quite a bit of it as a kid too. The bee pang, I mean. I haven’t had it for at least half my life though!

    My missus loves them, not me… So hard! But I would eat if there’s any lying around, just not something I would be craving for.

  18. used to eat Bee Pang when I was young… hardly can find good ones now here… πŸ™‚

    They’ve very good ones in Kuching – my missus would surely want to buy – she loves ’em. I’m just ok with those, a bit too hard for me. Would rather go for those soft nyonya kuehs anytime. πŸ˜‰
