Ole Ole Bali

Okay, before I elaborate further on this restaurant, I think I ought to tell you why we ate at this rustic and charming outlet. I was supposed to do my last minute shopping and I even canceled my lunch appointment with two best friends Anna and Susan.

So, on that morning while I was about to do drive out to finish up my errands, Susan called me and asked if I could have lunch with them that very afternoon instead and that she will drive me around to finish up my errands! I'm not sure whether it would be a good idea because I'm a person who does not like to trouble people. However, due to the time constraint and the fact that I really wanted to meet Susan and Anna again before I headed back to Vancouver, I agreed with Susan.

Anyway, after running my errands together with Susan we headed to the Sunway Pyramid to meet Anna. Then we were debating what to have for lunch. After looking at the directory of the shopping mall, we decided to try out a Middle Eastern restaurant. Guess what? After 15 minutes of searching for the outlet, we found out that they were closed! Sigh!!! Then, we saw Ole Ole Bali. The restaurant deco looks very Balinese and we thought why not? Can't be that bad, right?

Well, turns out, the food was good and the atmosphere was great too! You know, above all, for me I must say it's the company that makes everything beautifully! I'm going to miss Susan and Anna a lot. We've been great friends for many years now and I guess for the time being we will have to keep in touch with each other through the Internet again. (Thank god for the Brilliant INTERNET!)

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
