Delightful Time In Taman Sutera Utama, Johor

Merry Merry Christmas!!!

Today I had a good time in JB.. met up with an old friend, Mr Bean and his daughter. We are old buddies from yesteryears and it is great to see them once again.

Thank you, Mr Bean for taking us out for lunch, thanks for your "abundant gifts" as well... I promise to make it up to you when you come Ipoh next year!

Here are some pictures of my tea-time in Sutera area....
at last I can have some delightful chinese desserts!
They may look familiar but their fillings are different from those in IPOH.. nice, nice!!
red beans with sweet potatoes...
black sesame with peanut paste
sweet beancurd with gingko seeds.. delightful for me!
rojak... Johor style
a bit of this and that... all to my taste!
Sorry, I didn't catch the name of the shop.. 
along this road....
just opposite a children's playground...

Sorry for not being able to "blop-hop" to your blogs.... going for a ten days trip is really exhausting and time consuming. Really no time to attend to my blog until late at night...but once I am back in Ipoh, I will make back for the lost time... hopefully!  :)

Happy Boxing Day in another 40 minutes from now!!

  10. i want the peanut paste and black sesame soup. hmm i hv not seen this combination in Kl stores unless home made.....*sob*

  11. Red bean with sweet potatoes, i love it. All the dessert is so yummy looking.

  12. it's only in johor that the rojak comes with yu char kueh. if fact, i like it when it's solely yu char kueh with the rojak sauce.

  13. Your rojak looks really enticing. I tried one yesterday just outside Pelangi shopping centre. Was just passing by when I spotted this interesting stall on the back of a bike. I liked it very much. Have you tried it?


Thank you, readers!
