Did quite a bit past weeks but haven't loaded up the pics yet.. Here's a glimpse of some stuffs I did...

Isthmus re-visited.
My favourite Penang"Or nee" (yam paste) pastry - from Kim
New Harvest Restaurant re-visited - 2nd sis bought me lunch! My holiday in Langkawi - sunburnt (ouch!) and now peeling (eeew!)Thanks to mom who bought me 7 pieces of pork ribs the length of 1/2 my arm each, I made slow-cooked pork ribs (7 hours at 130 deg C!) with homemade Cola BBQ sauce and Cornbread - Mmm...meat so tender that knife is not needed! And cornbread was a huge hit!

I made grilled herbed polenta fingers for our first BBQ on our new gas BBQ - along with chicken wings and spicy potato wedges - above is leftover polenta which we had for dinner the next day with salmon steak. Gas BBQs rule!Hairy gourd with yong tow foo soup - even Barry loves this soup! (no salt nor MSG needed - just a good ikan bilis stock). Best made with home made yong tow foo but right now, making fish paste is not on my priority list.

Also, seafood feasts with visitors from Canada at De Foodland and then at King Crab at Irene's birthday (awaiting pictures to be sent to me).

Also, shopped a lot because it's the grand Malaysian sale! Bought stuffs from Massimo Dutti, Zara, MNG, Lewre, Anna Sui, La Senza, Aldo, Naf Naf etc etc.. overshopped...**shudders** Gotta restrain a bit, Paris upcoming in Sept & Nov!

And for the sake of my body, I went for a full medical screen and pap smear and got a clean bill of health! Also, am currently giving my eyes a break from contact lens after 20 years (mainly because the ophtalmologist said to do so). It has been 1 month now being 4-eyes and it's not as bad as I thought it would be....
