A Treat At Nyonya Treats, Perling

BEFORE WE LEFT FOR SINGAPORE, we took our lunch at Nyonya Treats in Perling.  It was after 1pm when we reached the place and the tables were all occupied.  Thanks to my in-laws, they went there earlier to book a table for the seven of us.  The lights are quite dim inside the restaurant, my pictures below also turned out darker than usual.  Anyway, the moment we sat down, we ordered our food and requested for the desserts to be served first!  :)  We were all yearning for the Durian Cendol which cost RM5 per bowl....
Fresh Durian flesh embedded beneath the mountain of ice... 
Must not miss ordering this.... 
My son ordered their Bubur Cha Cha for a change...
And it came out creamy and fragrant... 
Sweet Potato, Yam and Tapioca... all three I LIKE!
As for our dishes..... 
Or Hiang or Chicken Spring Rolls....
Rendang Chicken....
Two greens... Sweet Potato Leaves...
and Young Kailan... 
The Sambal Fish is a Must-order too...
For these six dishes with rice and desserts, the cost came to around RM180.
With tummies full, we drove to Singapore for a short visit....

Our Spicy Moments At The Spice Kitchen, Johor

DURING ONE OF THOSE LAZY EVENINGS when Reanaclaire's kitchen was closed, we went for something different for our dinner.  AA suggested that we go to The Spice Kitchen since ND is a member there too.  Member = 50% discount.  LOL... So off we went and this time, our food came very fast unlike the other time, we waited almost an hour, maybe it was on a Saturday then.

The Spice Kitchen is a fusion restaurant, an authentic Indian-Chinese, Indian and Thai restaurant where traditional Hakka recipes are infused with Indian spices.... hmmmm... no wonder the menu shows a combination of both....

We ordered something simple for our dinner that evening for we do not want to tuck in too full, all of us seem to be "rounded" by now... LOL...
The boys did the ordering.... 
While I admired the layout in front of me.... 
Started off with Dry Cauliflower Manchurian.... 
Famous Kolkata tossed with spices...a bit sweet and spicy..
Indeed it suits my taste buds!
Mutton Curry....
AA wanted Lentils to go with the Naan....
Oh wait... there is another chicken dish...
I must have forgotten to take the picture... aiyah...
And we ordered dried fruits Naan.. they were good and we ordered another round of this...
Something sweet to go with the savoury dishes....
A picture before we partake our food... 
And our usual thanksgiving .... 
Couldn't remember the price, must be around RM60... :)
This is the place... The Spice Kitchen where all the spices are... :)

Dinner At Tian Lai Garden, Gelang Patah, Johor

RECEIVED A MESSAGE from my cousin in Singapore stating that he will be coming with his family to JB the next day.  Great!!  I was all ready to welcome them and my cousin kept in touch with me all the way from Singapore till the customs.  After that, no more news from him... Alamak!!  His data must have shut off by the time they crossed over to Malaysia.  How eh... I have not confirmed where to meet and all that with him.  He also must have forgotten about the wifi when he drove over.

Anyway, I took the chance and drove all the way to AEON Bukit Indah, they surely have to pass by there on the way.  We did mention AEON but never confirm where and when to wait.  So I estimated... I parked the car and waited at the grocery entrance.  After some 15 minutes or so, a call from Messenger came in.  Phew... they were just outside AEON at Block D.  Great!! True enough, they did not have data when they came in to Malaysia and one of my cousin quickly subscribed to a plan just opposite the mall.  So all turned out well....

I took them for lunch at Tea Garden, just opposite... and after that, they came over to my little nest to look see and rest.... After a couple of hours, we drove to AEON again, this time to do some shopping and I also ended up buying a piece from Padini. :)  By then it was almost 5.30pm and my cousin suggested going to Gelang Patah for dinner.  Great!!  I have not been there before.... Let's GO!

We went to Tian Lai Seafood Garden along Jalan Leong Bee, it was the first time for them too, using Google Maps, it took around 20 minutes to reach.  Nice timing, no crowd yet and by the time we finished our dinner, the place was fully occupied.
My sengat picture of the entrance... 
Looks like it is a house being renovated to cater its seafood business...
All the dishes were recommended by the "Loe Sai" *Captain*
Curry Pork Ribs in Claypot...
My picture didn't do any credit to the tasty curry....
The curry was thick and not over spicy.... 
Their signature yellow beancurd.. it was yellowish inside... 
Maybe made from pumpkin.... I didn't ask... 
Spicy dry chilies clams.... 
Ching Loong Choy.... 
And the best was the Claypot Fish Bass... 
Thick skin full of collagen, so they say.... 
The meal cost around RM170 or so with drinks and rice... 
My auntie and cousins... 
Thanks for the treat, folks!!
