Oh Ayer Baloi!

It has been quite a while since I went back to Ayer Baloi....since my inlaws were returning from their holiday in New Zealand on Thursday, and FIL wanted to meet his grandchildren, we decided that we should leave for Ayer Baloi immediately after work on Friday. We got there around 9.30 pm.....MIL and FIL were still jet-lagged and were in JB (they went and arrived via Changi Airport), but got home around 1 am!

It was a good break for me...and it was more of a baking weekend for me! Here are some shots!
Vintage lamp at the entrance of the house.
Some old sketches on the wall, picture was taken by Ibraheem.
MIL working on the pictures that she took during her hols.
The landing....
On Saturday after I cleaned the house, I headed straight to Chan Guan, my regular baking haunt! I was looking for Hong Kong flour to make brorozan's Marble Nutella cake, but found all ingredients and things enough for me to make macarons! Ahah!
My regular kedai supply lauk pauk! You can see Hajar backing the camera! 
It was 12.20 pm and what was left were Kuah Assam Pedas, Ayam Masak Lemak and Kangkung Goreng Belacan.. 
Once arrived I tidied my catch of the day and started making Jasmine Tea Macarons (got the powder from Chan Guan)...see those happy RM200 Elba oven never fails me! Recipe in another post!
Pak Ngah (FIL's only brother) came from JB to spend the night with us and bought this yummy goreng pisang from Pekan Ayer Baloi for tea, they finished in a blink...I ate mine with the Sambal Kicap that MIL made!
This was the Marble Nutella Cake that I made (recipe in another post), half were gone the minute I put on the table.....think this received a no 2 rating after Victoria Sandwich cake amongst my family! Woot!
This is not to be eaten (maybe I can dry them and grind them in my macarons batter!)...Bunga Kenanga!
On Sunday morning MIL asked me to bake this Cheese Scones (I'll post the recipe later), she got the recipe from hubby's cousion whom she went to visit in NZ. Apart from this MIL made Bubur Air with all the complete condiments and we had these and Murtabak Singapore for breakfast.....

Can you imagine how difficult it was for us to drag our feet to go back to KL with all these....well, we left after solat Maghrib and now we are all immersed in the hustle and bustle of KL life again...... passion fruit tree is doing very well, according to my neighbour it wsa in full bloom but none turned to bear fruits...maybe because we were not there!
