Pre Graduation Dinner With Lou Wong

Gabriel and his family arrived in Ipoh a day before his graduation... Took them to Sun Mar Poh, Ipoh Garden for lunch. First time meeting up his mum and sister, there was sort of a barrier between us..what sort of barrier? Language... hahahaa...

I don't know much Mandarin nor hokkien... and Gab's mum doesn't know much Cantonese... so imagine our conversation has a mixture of each and everything including malay.. all rojak.... well, as long as we understand each other... finally.. that is what counts! hahahhaa...

For dinner, we took Gab and family to Lou Wong nga choy kai (chicken & bean sprouts)... Come to Ipoh, you must try this otherwise you have not been to Ipoh.... LOL...

Lou Wong Chicken Shop..

opposite is the salted duck shop...

Gab getting ready his equipment...

see how Professional he is!

the kok kok kai.. (steamed chicken)

Ipoh famous bean sprouts..

plus some fish meatballs...

as I said earlier, I took them there..
but Gab paid for the dinner...
Thank you Gabriel for the sumptuous meal!!


  1. Between Lou Wong and Onn Kee, I prefer the latter. Hmm... it's the soup that really matters. You? What do you like about Lou Wong?

  2. Actually both of them taste pretty much the same to me.. i think the best is near the excelsior hotel one. what is its name, i forgot. but that one is expensive!

  3. Lou Wong and Onn Kee are nice. I can't tell which is better. Did you all use sign language instead?

  4. yeah, i went there before when i visited my friend in Ipoh.. but can't remember whether it's Lou Wong or the one opposite..

    can't communicate with Gabriel's mum?? then just use the universal language lor, or get Gabriel to translate~~ :p

  5. twilight: we rojak our language.. very unique one..hahaa....

    sk: yes, i did ask gab many times.. sigh... i better take up mandarin class la..

  6. How generous he is to pay for your meal!! What is a salted duck shop, is that all they sell? Is it a restaraunt that only sells salted duck or more like a grocery store?

  7. Hah!!! Gab belanja kah? Now, when is he going to give me a treat? Aiyor...his equipment! He takes it out, I wouldn't dare to take mine out malu, mine's so small!!! Muahahahaha!!!!

  8. ginny: salted duck is wrapped up with parched paper and steamed in a wok full of salt.. it is very fragrant when the duck is cooked.. :)

    stp: hey, u got camera, i used my handphone only to snap all these.. hahaha.. lagi malu-ing!

  9. Your posts are always studded with photos of great meals that's why I'm always hungry whenever I visit your blog, lol. How are you my friend? Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  10. nga choy kai is always the best for first timers to Ipoh..yummy.

  11. Claire, you know I'm not familiar with names in Ipoh and yet your title sounds, erm like you're having sort of a date with Uncle Wong (Lou Wong). Ceh, you got me again!

    Btw, that bowl of fish/meat balls looks yummy...

  12. Mel: it is not always about food! hahaha.. maybe just a coincidence..

    wenn: yeah, but we ipohians seldom take them, right?

    yvonne: so now u should be familiar with the name.. dont forget to go try that place.. :)

  13. hehe...thank you auntie. no lar, the meal just a small matter compared to the blessings you have given me. i am hungry already, miss the meat balls. lol.

  14. When in the presence of Gab, all we have to do, is to strike a good pose and leave the shoot shoot here and shoot shoot there to him, right?

  15. Perhaps Gab paid because he wanted to snap those photos? :D

  16. gab: u dont have to miss them.. just come to Ipoh anytime u want! :)

    eugene: a pro is always a pro, right?

    tekkaus: that, u have to ask him.. hahaha..

  17. Yup, indeed the best is near the excelsior hotel one. It's expensive though. But I'll still option for there, once a while, ok la.....

  18. Have been some time too i've never been there...Miss their meat balls!

  19. Always went for lunch/dinner at Sun Mah Poh when I was staying in Ipoh.

    Don't know whether I'v been to Lou Wong but I really loved the ngai choi kai and the beansprouts.

    Aaww..I really missed home.

  20. Yes...that is the salted duck stall la...

  21. cindy: me too..once awhile.. :)

    angeline: do come to Ipoh one day..

    jessie: u r from Ipoh?

    gallivanter: ok, will check it out!

    kathy: yes, yes!!

  22. Hi Claire,

    According to Motorsmouth, a place for ngah choy kai that is much better than Luo Wong is at Cowan Street. Check it out at his food blog.

  23. I tend to eat at Lou Wong's neighbour. I'm still trying to decide which is better. Hmmmmm

  24. Nice food stuffs, good to see all these infact hungry...

  25. i went to Lou Wong once many many years ago before i got kids. Yes, their chicken rice taste good and different from what we had here in KL.

    Language barrier, i understand, because my hub and my mum also like chicken and duck talk. mum speak mandarin and foochow, but my hub not know mandarin nor foochow. :(

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
