Lumut, Sitiawan & Kampong Koh..

From Kellie's Castle Batu Gajah, we proceeded our journey to Lumut, to show my JB frens the jetty....lol... (as if there is something special about that) ... walked around and look see, look see, nothing much, mostly holiday goers, waiting or embarking the ferry to go across to Pangkor Island.

After an hour or so, we adjourned to Sitiawan, just drove past and went on to Kampong Koh to have our belated lunch there. I took them to this Ah Pek restaurant, been there few times but this time the food was so so only. Either they have changed the owner or the chef has left, the food served yesterday was a bit bland to me....




the or chian...
sitiawan style..
crispy all round..


nearer version...
this was not too bad...


sweet sour crabs
was not to my taste


the claws looked big but when "hammered"
the flesh has already "shrunk"
due to starvation...


stir fried greens...
(not sure of name)


steamed senangin...
(sorry, dont know english name for this)


and the half left mee sua with red wine chicken

The bill came to RM128/-
expensive or not?
i feel it was a bit over charged...

  2. Eyew...I think I'd stick to the or-chian Penang-style...or the way they fry it at Kpg Buntal, Damai...near Kuching. Also crispy and definitely looks nicer than this!

    From me to you, suejean =)

    annieQ: actually i dont quite like but once awhile, ok..fine.. :) i prefer the local char mee...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hmmm... i thought Kg Koh should have better food than this ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I think it is a bit overpriced as it is not in KL. What is the first dish? Vege?

    ReplyDelete
  10. A little overpriced....Claire dressed like Japanese tourist? LOL
    Senangin is Treadfin fish, the one with 'misai' is called Fourfinger Treadfin....quite a funny name, huh!

    ReplyDelete
  11. pureglutton: really not nice.. ipoh also better...


    Cath J: not worth la... too expensive


    Celine: im sure KL better..anytime..

    ReplyDelete
  12. The mee sua with red wine chicken is my favourite dish! But in KL very hard to get this.. =(

    ReplyDelete
  13. gosh, great food & food... im getting hungry de :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Alot of nice food.....it makes me feel hungry now.

    ReplyDelete
  15. How come the Or Chien looks so weird! LOL :D Very different from what we have here in Malacca. :p

    ReplyDelete
  16. War...you guys ate so many things! Must be yummy aye! The crabs look very nice too. Yum yum!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Really overcharged if the taste just so so ..

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aeiween: about the mee sua, i prefer it to be eaten with minced pork cantonese style.. hahaa.. old habits die hard..

    Irene: live to eat, right? :)

    MeRy: yes, food does tempt us.. now i also feel hungry too..

    Tekkaus: yes, different style, i think this must be deep fried la.. penang style is softer... so it depends on individual liking.. i tried the malacca one, near Jonkers street, a housewife did that for us, i forgot the name.. soft like penang one too..

    C.Alv.B: yes, if the food were tasty, then it is worth paying.. but if not, i feel they overcharged us..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aunty, RM128 is too pricey lah! Hmmm... next time instead of going to Sitiawan for seafood, you should consider going to Tanjung Tualang for nice crabs and prawns! RM120 total also you will pay happily! All fresh!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Crab!!! I love it so much... Sitiawan not a bad place huh?

  21. People said Ipoh got a lot of good food and it is true! I like the crabs. Look delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Henry: I feel..it is not the place, but the timing. Everywhere we went, most places were crowded and the food were sort of bland during this festive season. Maybe after this week, it will be back to normal including the prices.

    Wai Keong: Must try more stalls then only can compare.. kg koh have lots but i hv yet to find a good nice one...

    Superman: If u ask me, IPOH now is not as famous as before.. when it comes to making money, they just dont care less about the quality anymore..

    ReplyDelete
  23. so expensive le. except for the crab,the rest of food are biasa-biasa saja

    ReplyDelete

    Manglish: if the crabs meat did not shrink, then ok..hahaa.. as it had, then it was not worth it..


    Life Ramblings: this red wine mee sua is famous in sitiawan, normally for confinement ladies.:)

    BoeyJoey: at first i tot they shrunk due to overcooking too, but it was not dry at all, the meat was still fresh, only the meat is not fully developed, if u get what i mean.. hahaha...

    Merryn: aiyah, then i should pay a visit to your hometown, yr house there... say hi to yr aunties, uncles.. etc etc... lol...

  37. oh boy, my mouth is watering now. the dishes look yummy. hey, the name of the restaurant is sooooo long and funny :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think they overcharge ..thought u guys are 'water fish'.. probably too much hype on kg koh already

    ReplyDelete
  39. maybe that's the standard coz u got crab?
    hahah.. i dont know..
    but 128 for 4 dishes, it's quite expensive like that loh

    ReplyDelete
  40. Psst...! I don't think the crabs shrank. People say at certain time of the Chinese month, they are busy mating - too active, not eating...so no flesh! Dunno how true! Hahahahahaha!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Rachel: no need cny one..when it comes to eating, anytime also can! hahaa...


    Barb: next time dont go to this shop.. either they simply cook them or it was festive season yesterday that they simply charged as well..


    Chris: water fish we were really.. but my fren paid...dont know he heartbroken or not.. i was..


    Dolly: memang expensive.. i think normal days below 100rm nia..


    William: the food was not good actually.. :)


    STP: how crabby..
    pssst.. really true or not.. maybe we ask eugene??? he stays near the beach, right? hehehee...

    ReplyDelete

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
