Ipoh Hometown Restaurant Is Lonely And Alone...

It was such a pitiful dinner in Ipoh Hometown Restaurant last night... I have seen and heard much about this Ipoh Restaurant few times but I have never been there till yesterday. We arrived at the restaurant around 7pm.... the whole row of shops looked so quiet and secluded....nevertheless the five of us walked in .....

A lady came to take our order... it was so quiet that only our voices could be heard in this two shop lots restaurant...well, it was good in a sense that we could get our food fast or at least we thought we would... but we were wrong... the food took much longer than we expected ....
These were what we ordered...
meat with tomato sauce... 
beancurd special ... 
beneath the beancurd is steamed eggs... 
steamed herbal chicken...
the chicken had a "frozen" smell...
sambal belacan paku pakis...
among the four dishes, we favour this one ... 
this is complimentary... sort of "sweet-less" 
  
the four dishes.. portions are big no doubt...
if only the chicken and the pork taste good...
The bill came to RM60 for the five of us...
Reasonable actually...
 But the sad thing is....
when we left around 8pm, the whole restaurant became empty again...
Such a pity....

  13. Something must be wrong with this restaurant then. Otherwise, sure a lot of people going one. My place also have low spending power, but many restaurants are crowded in the evening.

  14. Maybe not many people coming here because the service is slow? Or maybe less promotion.. Hmm.. That belacan paku pakis looks yum

  15. RM60 only for all those dishes?? consider very cheap for a dinner like this. Probably lesser crowd on week days.

  16. yan: i think it could be due to locality and not enough of advertisement...

    agnes: it was a sunday.. :)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
