Our Road Side Meal At First Garden

"Where are we going for lunch?" This is the usual question my colleague will ask when we meet up at our office lobby each afternoon. Sometimes we pre-plan our schedule during the morning and at times we are "aimless" as to where to go for lunch.

Normally we do not need to say anything till we are out of our office gates and then let the roads lead us till we make a decision... something like.... Have Road Will Travel....

This afternoon the roads led us to First Garden... when we reached there, we saw there were a few hawker stalls... well... the rest of the story is here below...
A lone hawker stall... 
feeling curious, I went over to see what he has...
ended up buying these for our lunch...
3 pieces of vegetable dumplings (kau chi)
and a piece of raddish cake....
Another hawker stall selling Rojak (mixed fruits)
sprinkled with lots of nuts....
a bowl of beancurd dessert with coconut sugar, 
Rojak and Dumplings....
Hence, we ended up sitting by the roadside 
to take our "kind of funny" lunch...


  1. simple crispy dumplings.. looks yummy yummyy!!

  2. ooo dumpling n rojak selling together??
    how is the rojak taste?

  3. the raddish cake comes with lap cheong inside?? looks very nice leh, of course also the pan fried gao ji and the rojak, so generous to give so many peanuts..

  4. eunice: they tasted not bad actually..

    kathy: oh u like rojak?

    simpleperson: they are opposite each other.. the rojak there is not bad..

    sk: roadside stalls offer better options..cheaper too!

  5. Occasionally, I allow myself to do the same, gulping down all the food I found in the night market without being bothered too much about calories and cholesterol. It's fun eating this way.

  6. hehe, kind of funny lunch, but i think its "kind of nice" lunch too! :)

  7. I think I would tried the mixed fruits with nuts


  8. looks good to me!!!

  9. So how did it taste, would you go back? It all looks really good for vendor food, except for the nut covered stuff.

  10. Yumz!
    But I could imagine what my Mom would have said if she ever saw me eating these foods for lunch, "don't eat lap chap yea, have a proper meal!" Lolz

  11. Huh? I thought I commented already leh?

  12. stp: tak nampak pun?

    gratitude: yes, moms are always right, u know.. hahaha..

    isaac: yes, good to eat lap chap once awhile..

    pam: eat away!!

    ginny: vendors food are cheap and nice.. hahaha..

    wenn: nice food near your place!

    gigi: yes, they do..

    filip: great!

  13. I don't mind taking roadside food, most of them taste nice one, may be because of extra ingredient - dust.

  14. They all look yummy to me...I don't mind sitting at roadside long as they taste good.

  15. yan: u r very right!! :)

    mery: added ingredients.. hahaa..

  16. Dumpling looks delicious. How about the tao fu fa? Good?

  17. The tao fu fa and rojak looks delicious. I do sometimes took lunch from the hawker stall...

  18. That's a simple yet special lunch. Every day eating rice and noodle also boring. haha...

  19. wow yummy, sometimes the simplest things taste the best... never been there before thought, shd get the dierections there when i am ipoh next time

  20. i didnt know that the lady has gula melaka for her tau foo the dumpling nice?

    kristen: ok, u can ask me.. hahaha..

    kimura: not bad..

    alv: cos nowadays not many roadside stalls..

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

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
