Always love Giant's potato bread. Very soft and delicious.. Found a recipe by Alex Goh and tried it one evening.
The turn out was delicious, and as I love custard, I put extra on top of the bun before eating it.. yumyum...
The best part of it was when my youngster couldn't wait to get his hand on the buns.. my loyal fan.. hehe..
600g Bread Flour
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tbsp Milk powder
4 tsp Instant Yeast
270ml Cold Water
120g Mashed Potato (I used potato flakes+hot water)
1. Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) and knead to form a dough.
2. Add (C), continue to knead to form a smooth and elastic dough.
3. Make the dough into a ball. Put it in a bowl and cover with clear film. Put in a warm place to prove for 45 min.
4. Make the dough into a ball again and let it rest for further 15 min.
5.Divide the dough into several 30g pieces, mould them into balls and put then on 2 greased 23cm square baking pans. Makes 16 pieces per pan.
6.Cover and leave to prove for 40 min or till double the size.
7. Brush with egg wash and pipe the custard to make a cross on top.
8. Bake at 180 degree C for 25 min on the low shelf of the oven.
I used my BM, so I just dumped (A), start the machine, then (B). Add (C) when it's well blended and already form a dough. Let it sit in the BM for the 1st prove.
** As the dough is a bit sticky, you can put some flour on your hands before you starts to make it into balls.

Can't wait to go back there again...
We went for dinner at The Royal Kedah Club on the 2nd raya night.. As usual, the food was great. The food arrived quite late as it was a full house that night.. I ordered Salmon, my husband ordered the Oriental Chicken Chop and Adam ordered Fried noodle.. hehe.. I love the Strawberry juice here, because it made from fresh strawberries.. Next to it is the Strawberry milkshake for my husband..
Overall, the food was ok, the service was excellent and will visit the restaurant again..

There's a place called Four Season Restaurant which is just a walking distance from my hotel. Its a halal Restaurant with excellent Beriani Rice + Selection of Chicken, Prawn or Meat. Marvelous meal especially when you are hungry. But i can tell you that its not that cheap but its value for money. You also might bump with Malaysian in the restaurant.
If you go to the mamak's at the Beach Rd, the bonesteak is very red in colour, as the use red colouring. So if you like, you can add some. If you dont, it will look like this ...

Recipe for 'fried udang geragau':
onion/shallots, spring onions, chopped cili padi/ red chilli, egg, udang geragau.
That night, my eldest son kept making excuses for wanting to open his lil bro's presents (it's getting late, he's going to sleep soon.. hehe..), at that moment I realised that he IS getting bigger and smarter.. hehe.. As for the birthday boy, he had fun that night, playing with his cousins and his new toys ( thanks to his aunts & uncles)... he went to bed around 1.30am that night .
The cake was beautiful (thanks to my sister), and my mother told me that while we were singing birthday song to Ammar, instead of saying 'Hppy Birthday to Ammar' he said slowly 'Happy Birthday to Adam'.. hehe... why I'm not suprised... Ammar got a bicycle from his grandpa and today, I caught him standing on the bike while both hands holding the armrest of the sofa... Kids... scarry...
