A Fifties Birthday Bash!

We had our "birthday bash" in Farmhouse... or is it Farmhome?  hahaha... I am blurred now.... anyway, the three of us (yes, 3's a good company last night) had a good time, savouring the varieties in Hot Pot called Porridge steamboat...

Porridge steamboat is not very popular in Ipoh but I think it is most suitable for those who prefer something less oily.. something we chinese called "ching-ching".. for those recuperating from health reasons (ME), for the elderly people and for a nice warming ambience, this place is much recommended...

Ok, I let the pictures tell what we did....
Me Me in an almost empty Farmhouse....
when we left, it was almost full.... 

me and my "sister" who is one day younger than me... 
"Let me serve both of you old aunties"....
"tonight we have special taste..... "
part of the food being served... 
we ordered extra greens for the aunties like us... 
there... something like this.... 
instead of soup, they have diluted porridge... 
cannot see the rice grains.. 

and then.. after the food.. 
the best part is cutting up the Strawberry Cake
baked specially for me by ELIN!!
It was so so... FABULOUS!
Home made with lots of strawberries... 
Gosh.. I took 2 WHOLE PIECES.. 
Isn't this Gorgeous??? 
I mean... the CAKE! 
LOL....

  26. Brand new steamboat concept in Ipoh. I wonder if the food would take even longer to cool as it is coated with a layer of porridge.
