Lok Lok

Apr 12, 2009

We can only get this type of Lok Lok's van in the Klang Valley. Malacca's Lok Lok (satay celup) is a different version one. Anyway, I love both.

We were hunting for dinner on Tues. When we passed by the Melaka Raya area, we saw this van. BB knows that I love Lok Lok. So he suggested to have our dinner there. Hmmm..... eating in the street?? Don't we look "tam chiak" (greedy)? Is this enough for our dinner? I was a bit hesitate initially. However, we went for it finally.

Lok Lok's van offers a variety of food skewered on sticks with pots of boiling water and 3 types of sauce (sweet sauce, chili & satay sauce). Watch out for the chili and satay sauce! They are pretty spicy. Besides, they also grill and deep fried your food if you want to. We have just a few sticks and it costs us RM 18. It is quite expensive for Malacca's standard.

Overall, the food is quite nice and they are fresh. If you want to hold a party at home, please do not hesitate to contact them. They can drive to your home for a Lok Lok party.

I'm sorry, my precious Kai Jun!

I supposed to blog about my dinner with Hubby B at Elcerdo KL but my precious nephew, Kai Jun has placed a much more important role at this moment. I decided to blog about him after seeing the video clip that my SIL sent it to me.

I must admit that I was a little too harsh on him last Tues. It happened when he asked me a question.

"Ku Ku, spell your name!"

After I spelt my name to him, I got him to spell his name to me.

"Kai Jun."

"What about your surname?"

He looked at me innocently. I raised up my tone.

"You do not know your surname?"

Fine. I wrote on his book and wanted him to read alphabet by alphabet - LOH KAI JUN.

I made a condition to him that if he failed to read out his full name (without looking at the book), then he could not play the games in my iPhone already.

He read few times. Sometimes serious and sometimes playful. When I asked if he is ready for the challenge, he knodded his head.


"Your surname? The first word in your name!"

He requested to look at the book again. Fine. Last chance and I told him to call me when he is prepared.

Again! "KAI JUN."

"Hey what is your surname? Gong Gong, PaPa, KuKu, SuSu & Lucas has it too."

He turned to my mum, his grandma to seek for help.

"Don't look at Ah Ma. She can't help you. Fine. No more iPhone for you!"

Suddenly, he cried out loud. He told me that he don't know! I scolded him. At the end, he slept with his tears and his milk bottle. I checked with his mum and realised that she has never taught him his surname before. Oops.... I have misunderstood him. I thought that he was taught before. I felt so bad after the incident.

I felt even hurt when I watched the clip just now. He is a smart boy. At his age - 3.5 years old, he can read a short story book.

"This is Brownie.
Brownie is a dog.
This is my dog.
I like my dog.
I like Brownie.

Oh No! (with full expression)

I like Brownie.
I like the dog but ........."

He pointed and read word by word. I wish that I could share the clip here but I failed to save it because of the programe problem. I feel terribly hurt with what I have done to him. I know that he doesn't blame me but I just like to apologise to him.

"I'm sorry, my precious!"

It is not easy raising up a child. Though I'm expecting now, I know that it is not going to be an easy journey. Throughout this journey, I'm sure that we will face lot of challenges & disappointment. It depends on how we shower our children with our love and patience. I might not be a good mother but I will try my best to learn and understand their needs.

Elcerdo @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Apr 11, 2009

Since BB knew that I was upset with the snake incident, he has invited me along to his trip to KL.

We decided to go to Elcerdo KL for dinner. This is a Spanish restaurant that served pork, pork and pork. I love pork, especially suckling pig. Since they are famous with that dish, we are definitely going to order half of it to try.

We parked our car at Pavilion KL. Since we do not really know where the restaurant is situated, we left the mall early. We walked for quite a distance. I have started to complain to BB that my foot are sore & I'm tired. We called up Kelvin for direction and we asked around too. Finally we found the place.

The ambiance there is nice. If you look around, you will notice that most of the tables are sure to order their specialty, suckling pig. We ordered a half suckling pig and also the highly recommended appetizer, air dried ham served with rock melon by Kelvin.

The ham is superb. We can't describe how tasty it is but it melted as soon as you put it into your mouth. We fall in love with it. The next day, we tried to look for this ham from most of the supermarket but sad to say that our mission failed. :(

Here come the suckling pig. It was pretty big portion for the 2 of us. Never mind la. Who care? Before it was cut, there is a small ceremony to be carried up. The waiter will ask the guest to participate in this "wish comes true" ceremony. So I was the honored one! I was given a plate. The waiter taught me to hold the plate and knock 3 times on the wooden chopping board where the roasted pig is served. Then I was asked to make a wish. Hehe... greedy me has made 2 wishes instead of 1. The waiter started the first chop with her plate. Then I followed with the 2 chops on the suckling pig's stomach. Once done, I have to break the plate as it symbolizes that my wish will come true. Everyone in the restaurant clapped. Haha... I felt great!

The pig was taken back to the kitchen for the rest of the chopping. The taste was plain and normal. So you must eat with the sauce that came with it. We concluded that the Chinese style suckling piglet is still the best. It is well marinated and meat is thin and crispy. Slurp slurp.....

We tried the Werner's Special dessert. Since our stomach has reached out the maximum capacity, we have requested the waiter to split the one portion dessert to two glasses. The wild raspberry sherbet is sour to me. But as you eat, you will get the slightly bitter chocolate which was hidden at the bottom of the glass.

The waiter served us 2 glasses of complimentary shot of lime juice, white wine and vodka upon asking for the bill. Since I can't drink, BB has drank it on my behalf. BB told me that the drink was refreshing & it is good for digestion after those oily food.

Well, the bill came up to be RM 300 for just the 2 of us. Hubby B, thank you for this scrumptious dinner.
