Kuala Sepetang Fishing Village

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, we decided to have our lunch cum dinner in Kuala Sepetang. Why lunch cum dinner? I do not know what it is called because by the time we reached this place, it was almost 4pm....

We did not want to go during dinner time because by then, the crowd would be there and furthermore the road going in is quite jammed up because of the night market. (pasar malam) So the best time is to go around this time... between (4-6pm)

narrow road leading into the jetty..

slight drizzle when we reached...

While waiting for the food to come, I went round clicking here and there... I guess some of you have seen these before... this is a very familiar scene when you are sitting on top and the boats are just below....

real typical fishing jetty...

back from fishing...

fishermen's livelihood is here...

can see the sunset if we stay long enough...

love watching this scenery...

and then SUDDENLY...

something red was put on our table! :)

we ordered "Yim Kook Hai"
(Steamed salty crabs)

followed by a plate of noodles..
not so nice.. no Wok smell...

but this Tong Oh was very good.. fresh and young..

then lastly and not least.. we ordered a piece of fishlet..

steamed teochiew style...
it came out very nice.. not overcooked at all..
with the sourish sauce, it sure increased our appetite!
For these dishes, it came to RM62 ($20usd)
I think it is reasonable... right?


  1. So you were in Kuala Sepetang yesterday... y didn't call me? At least I can foot the bill for you, haha...

  2. Wah! The crab's HUGE!!!!! So cheap...only around RM60. How many much food?

  3. pam: AWWW.... missed the boat! ok, i call u next time.. offer still valid or not??

    stp: yes.. 2 crabs cost RM26... enough for 3 people...

  4. Always be yours, without expiry date...

  5. you went there just for food? wah, you really jom jon, sini sana pergi makan!

  6. mery: yes.. it was great! now have to go exercise!

    pam: how sweet! OK, I wont be hak hei.. i call u the next time i go down.. maybe this wednesday! hahaha..

    lena: yes.. now old already, must go eat eat.. hahaha..

  7. whoa.. that crab looks yummeh! big too! i love crabs.. the fishing jetty looks nice too.. if u take photo in sepia, it will certainly look like some 50's or 60's setting.. :)

  8. wow those seafood are really really fresh!! just very enticing for me, i must go to sleep now or else i'll get very hungry soon~~ :D

  9. Crabs! eating good food, living the good life now! :)

  10. Claire, it's so so cheap! Heard lots about Sepetang. Hope to be able to visit someday:)

  11. I love these pictures of the colorful boats!!! I think you did post some like this a few years back, but cannot remember much about them now. YES!!! You finally have included U.S.A. money!!! Now I know how much your food costs! I can't believe this was so cheap. Just to tell you, if I got one crab with maybe a side dish of french fries and a drink, it would be close to that price. And you got all that!! Maybe because it was fresh from the sea and was caught right there, we are not near a fishing port.

  12. No wonder you can eat out so often, food is much more expensive here! Except for fast food like McDonald's. A lot of poor people here eat at McDonald's because it is cheaper then even cooking at home, but so much fat and bad for your health, this is why so many heart attacks here.

  13. The boats are ertainly colourful.


  14. Looks like you had a lovely meal. I have never eaten crab meat or lobster. I do like fish and shrimp, and the shrimp can be cooked in garlic butter, made up into a shrimp cocktail or breaded and deep fried. I just like shrimp. Have a great week ahead.

  15. yerr its really been ages since I last ate a fish dish like that... and also crab... cant wait to go back home :D

  16. You were enjoying the sunset when suddenly a cooked crab jumped fromthe water on to your table hahaha. Heard you mention this place before as the name Sepetang sounds familiar and you got lost or something? Wow food nice and fresh and price quite OK.

  17. The first pic looks like got puting beliung brewing up. The food looks yummy esp the crab!

    LoL at Bananaz' comment!

  18. bella: where is sepia?

    sk: so did u dream of food? :p

    isaac: long time i didnt eat...

    ginny: asian food is very much cheaper .. maybe due to the exchange rate.. western food is more expensive and fast food is not for me.. :)

    filip: fishing boats..

    patty: i like shrimps too esp big giant ones!

    daniel: where is your hometown?

    bananaz: yes, been there a couple of times and posted them up too.. with different food, of course.. :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
