Sibu Kampua Noodles And Famous Layer Cakes

After all the "Kompia Purchases" by the KL bloggers, it was time to replenish our stomach after a night long singing and er...dancing too! Lots of calories were lost during the Karaoke session... and I was yearning to go for my first-time Kampua Noodles...

Our Sibu icon, Arthur Wee took us to this shop called Soon Hock Cafe & Restaurant, just opposite this church here...
forgot to take down the name of this beautiful church.... 
and this is the shop where we sat on the five foot way...
our Sibu Icon...
finally.... eventually... the Kampua Noodles.. 
and the Piansips...
aren't the Piansips tempting??
Arthur ordered one extra fried foochow noodles for us..
Due to my greediness, I couldn't taste much of this noodles...
my stomach was full of Kampua noodles and Piansips!
my Kampua Noodles...
next...we were taken to this place.. 
oh dear, I forgot the name..
something like Ayam Penyet Bandung stall, right?
Arthur recommended us to buy these layer cakes..
(Kek Lapis)
Too many choices.. don't know which to pick... 
 I bought the Horlicks cake.. 
highly recommended by Arthur..
it became Andy's favourite after that...
Before leaving... a picture to remember...
"Snow White Quay Po" and the "Boss" herself....
Wonder when we will be here again... 


  1. How nice to meet fellow blogger Quay Po. Say aloha to her from Hawaii!

  2. Concentrated too much on all the food until you even forgot the name of the church! Wahahahaha

  3. Neways, so glad you folks got to meetup even though having to travel so far. ^^

  4. Tonight, we had the Horlicks Honey kueh lapis for dessert. My Quay Lo like the other flavors better but I like the Horlicks Honey the most, I wish I have bought a dozen. Hey! where were my seven dwarfs? muahaha

  5. gigi: sure.. thanks!

    gratitude: u can say that again.. hahaa..

    quaypo: I had two slices of them for breakfast this morning... next time must tumpang our friend to buy over.. *moe hak hei*... hahaa.. 7 dwarfs? all big liow! lol..

  6. the kek lapis is good and it's getting more common around KL too, with slightly higher price

    Latest: Malaysian Version of "International"

  7. What wonderful fun you have been having on this trip!! Is this your vacation from work, how much time off did you have?

  8. fish: those cost around 21-25rm.. depending on what flavour..

    ginny: my own vacation! :) nice to go for a short holiday at times...

  9. layered cake.. yummmmmm.... :)

  10. woot woot! 3 cheers for the sibu icon! :)

  11. are those piansips similar to the prawn wanton here?

  12. Kampua noodles - the white version of won ton noodles. Any lard added in?

  13. Better don't get those kek lapis in KL or by the roadside in Kuching. The non-refrigerated ones. The sheer fact that they can sit there day in day out without refrigeration is an indication of the amount of preservatives used. The same goes to the cakes in supermarts and bakeries.

  14. P.S.:
    This is one of the better places for kampua in town - I like Rasa Sayang best but it's closed...and there are a few other places that are also very nice but no time to take all of you to those.

    Lard is used to fry the dry shallots...and the fragrant oil is used to toss the noodles and the fried shallots are used to garnish the dish...along with a bit of chopped spring onions.

  15. P.P.S.:
    Isaac!!! You're making me shy lah...and Claire, don't call me the Sibu icon lah! Next visit, you'll see statues of me everywhere instead of the swan. LOL!!!

  16. Oh ya, Claire, you forgot to mention that the kampua and piansip are only RM2.30 each bowl...and the big plate of fried noodles for all to share was only RM5.00.

  17. Oh Claire, you make me feel so at home here. The food are so familiar and I'm drooling...haha. My gosh.....all of you look so professional with big cameras! Look like newspaper reporters and journalists! :D Wonderful to know all of you had a wonderful trip to my hometown and met our very friendly blogger, Arthur. Hope we will get to meet one day! :D

  18. lol i like it when u said arthur wee - the sibu icon! hahahaha

  19. cath: yes, these are good..

    isaac: he is blushing already!

    lena: similar in terms of wrapping but taste a bit different.. theirs is thinner.. ours is thicker..

    pam: yes, without the dark and light sauce.. I bought some home and will try them.. just fry some shallots or garlic and I think they will taste good!

    stp: yes, this one is very fresh and nice.. normally i dont take layer cakes but these are different.. ok, next time we will go visit Rasa Sayang for better kampua noodles! I didnt put price bec I didnt pay ma.. so i didnt know how much exactly.. hehehe..

    mary: yeah, one day hope we will get to meet together.. a BIG gathering among the bloggers!

  20. warghh looks good! i oso wanna noms

  21. Not you too, Henry Tan!!! LOL!!!

  22. henry: our friend is blushing now!

    ky: catch the next flight.. hahaa..

  23. LOL. Sibu Icon.:D

    I tried Kampua noodles here in PJ before and I liked it. It must've taste better in Sibu. It reminds me of the bunga raya wantan mee in Malacca.

    That's a good tip from Arthur. Now I know must buy the kek lapis that are refrigerated.

    And really la..Quay Po is so white! That's why she's Quay Po..hehe.

  24. Horlicks Honey layer cake, from the name I already it is sweet and nice. Kampua mee looks delicious too.

  25. carolyn: yes, try the original kampua noodles.. :)

    sheohyan: my son loves it but i prefer the other layer cakes..

  26. I didnt get to taste the Horlicks time perhaps..

    Now kathy regret of not getting the kek lapis..ahahhaha

  27. Would love that plate of fried foochow noodles. Simply delicious.

  28. yeeling: yeah, she borong-ed so much but not the kek lapis.. too heavy jor..

    irene: Should give it a try! :)

  29. so u finally taste the kampua noodles .. how is it? good?

  30. simpleperson, yes! they are sort of different from our place here...

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!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
