14 Sundays Are For Food, Friends And Film

Food and Friends
We popped by a friend's house to drop off some art supplies for her kids - watercolour, colour pens, pencils, paintbrushes and rulers. They were my husband's, when he used to do interior design drawings manually. It's all computerised now so it makes sense to give it away.

Anyway, she made us these lovely Kuih Makmur. It's not easy to make this kuih as it can be very dry on the throat if not done properly. Well, Del did it perfectly and it was so addictive that we were stuffing ourselves on the roadside - out of the car since it was messy to eat.

Whilst cruising around Bandar Kinrara to check out the property development progress in the area, we chanced upon a few pigeons loitering around a wide grassy divider in a quiet corner of the neighbourhood. Since we had some bird seeds with us, we parked the car, deciding to spend a little time feeding the pigeons. It was funny.


"Hmm, why are these humans invading our territory? " That was what I was sensing off our feathery buddies. As we threw several handful of seeds towards them, they continued watching our movements cautiously. One brave bird decided to check the 'situation' out. It took a bite and then another - soon all the pigeons flocked to the spot and it was party time!

We bought these cakes for some late-night snacking since we had our meal early.

I had dry pan mee for dinner. Eggs are always a welcome addition.

Ant-Man and The Wasp was highly entertaining. The action scenes were exciting and well choreographed, there was good flow of the story and I love, love the bits of humour thrown in. We stayed until the very end to watch the post credits too. Worth the wait? Yes and no.

There you go, another fun-filled Sunday for us. How was your weekend?

    1. Haha! I knew it would!! I was influenced by your regular cake posts to buy these.

  2. I watched the movie last Saturday. Yes, it was entertaining and the kids enjoyed the 3D effect.

    Kuih makmur. I love it but hard to find good one.

    Cakes for late night snack? Not very ideal for me but as long as the tummy is happy, why not? Haha.

    1. I can't believe you beat me to it, Rose! Just by a day.
      That's true about kuih makmur. I'm reluctant to buy those at supermarkets for this reason.
      Tummy is always happy about getting bouncier. The owner of the tummy will lament the next day that it was a bad idea ..lol! ^.^

  3. Ya, I think kueh makmur can be hazardous if not taken properly.

  4. It has been ages since I took a bite of this Kuih Makmur. I am not sure whether this is a Malay or Chinese delicacy.

    You are so kind to carry the bird seeds everywhere to feed them. I used to carry packets of dog and cat food everywhere too. I realised it wasn't easy to feed them as they ran away by the time I finished tearing the sachets to place in the trays.

    1. I don't know either, TM but it seems to be popular on both festive occasions.

      It's good for the soul and I think it's really important that we try to include animals in our lives, small-small ways also also. I cannot imagine a future with zero animals because some people say they disturb our lifestyle, safety and think they shouldn't exist at all amongst humans. :)

  5. The snacking cakes look pretty awesome :-))

    1. Oh yes, I was influenced by someone somewhere in Singapore ...lol ;D

  6. I yet watch the ant man
    but I watched avengers
    the end is sad, all died

    1. Yes, that was really sad ..huhuhu.
      Ant-Man is a nice watch. I'm aiming for Mamma Mia next week - I just love their songs.

  7. Kuih makmur is my dad favourite. Mine too.
