It was raining yesterday evening which was good as it cooled down the weather a little. We took 8 (altogether 10) of our nieces and nephews to the night fun fare. That must be one of the best of my holiday back home in Malaysia.
Once there, food must come first, at least for me….*big smiles* There were lots of food, games and also a health talk which attracted a lot of people. I have been hearing of fried durians since I came back. Fried durians? Weird I thought. Unheard of. But I would love to try even if it gives me sore throat the next day.
Arriving at the fun fare, my sister-in-law headed straight to the fried durian stall. Only 4 pieces left…..*sigh*. Of course she bought all. We had to share, a small piece each. My opinion? It’s nice and special but I think I still prefer to eat durians straight after opening it, or better still, keep it in the freezer overnight.
Fried durians reminds me of fried Mars bars that we tried in Scotland. Both are already very high in calories. Coating them with batter and deep frying them is not helping anyone who wants to lose weight or eat healthy. The only difference is that fried durians is healthier as it’s a fruit.
I asked my nephew what other special things to go for next. There were just so much to choose. He couldn’t name the food but pulled me along to the stall. Oh……deep fried potato spirals! Fried stuff again…hmmm. But, they sure look inviting. Would be so fun to eat. Each stick is at least 18 inches long! I bought 5 to share.
These season potato spirals were drizzled with mayonnaise and ketchup on purchase. I must say they do taste really good…..mmmm. I love both the texture and the taste.
All of us had so much fun tearing and eating. I tell you, eating with kids are absolute fun….almost like fighting for food……*laugh out loud*. To balance out the heat of fried food, I had fresh coconut water…mmm…so refreshing and delicious.
Wait, that’s not all about the potato spirals. The kids complained that it’s not fair that I was not in the picture! Well, I gave it. No energy to argue with 8 kids! I passed my camera to one of the girls. Hope my head is in the picture….haha. Oh yes, well done, she got me in! Nice shot huh……*grin*. And that cheeky boy at the side is my nephew. He’s the one who took me to buy the potato spirals. And…oh no…another cheeky one at the back of me with the little hand up behind me….haha.
Ok, time for some fun before more food. I saw the bumper cars…YEAH….my favourite game! 8 of us went in, 2 in each car. Each car had a bigger one as driver and a little one at the side. My little 6 year old niece joined me. I told her over and over to hold my hand tight so that she won’t fly off. When the engine started, I jammed on the pedal and there, off we go…..wwwhhheeeee!
I only targeted the other 3 cars where my nieces and nephews were in, crashing into them and screaming at the top of our voices. At one point, I went for a head-on collision with my hubby’s car…..BANG!!!! My little niece beside squealed in total joy and excitement, holding tight to me! Our niece in my hubby’s car must have jumped half a foot from her seat….haha. That’s SO FUN!! I wish I can play that everyday, especially with the little kids. Nothing is better than seeing all the big smiles on their faces and all the high pitch screams and laughters……..*big smiles*. I must have felt at least 20 years younger…haha.
Well, more food after all the bumper car ride fun. My hubby went off and came back with a few packets of fish balls. These are big, fabulous fish balls, most sumptuous.
There is meat filling inside. That’s so special, the first time I had eaten fish balls with fillings. The fish balls were bouncy and not fishy. With every bite, it’s hard not to say ‘mmmmm’.
My nieces and nephews played other games too and soon it’s time for home. That’s such a great evening we had, one that I will remember for a long, long time.
I do hope you had a most fun holiday season.
Thanks very much for dropping by to read and also all your wonderful comments.
