Cheap Dim Sum In Kum Loong Taiping

It was only around 10am when we reached Kum Loong Food Shop (direct translation) from the photo here.....
It is actually a double shop lot selling dim sum only... when we were seated, we were told that most of the dim sum were sold out already, the waitress told us that not many choices were left....  I was really astonished...
no wonder the lady was sweeping the floor already...
(Can you see the customer putting up her legs?)
hahahaa.....
 I notice that the shop is more for "elderly people" like me...  lol...
Anyway, we sat there.... and see what they had to offer...
my friend and I didnt take much...
Just ordered a "Tai Pau" (Big dumpling)
some steamed dumplings and fish balls...
2 plates of steamed pork ribs
plus one plate of chicken with vegetables (not shown here)
We were recommended to eat this... 
Oh, I forgot the name but it seems they only do this once a week..
It was very large actually...
something like "sang yuk" pau..
with minced meat and a piece of egg as fillings..
 since I never seen this in Ipoh before, we ordered one and try...
It was not bad... neither it was very good...  hahahaa...
Well, nothing much to shout about in this shop...
but I do notice that many people came by to take away 
rather than sitting here to eat....
maybe because there is no air-con.....
Morning breakfast was a so-so...
I do not know their individual prices...
and the price including the above came to 
only RM17...something... 
So Cheap!!

  4. You must have gone there yesterday cos the kai woh pau (the one which you can't tell its name) is only available on Sundays. Coincidentally, I bought the same pau yesterday but I went there much earlier, around 7 a.m. The kai woh pau is sold at RM6 to RM7 in Sri Petaling so this one is really cheap. Kum Loong sells the usual stuff every day namely loh mai kai, paus, morsels etc. At 5 p.m. daily, chicken pie (kai soh), siew pau and kaya kok will be delivered fresh from the kitchen. Egg tart, chin tui and nam yue sou (fermented beancurd puff) are sold on Sunday morning only (usually sold out by 7.30 a.m.)

  7. Claire, Kum Loong dim sum is very famous during the olden days...My grandfather like to go there yum char. For me, their dim sum is so so only. We usually da pao their famous "Tai Pao". Kum Loong have great tea time snack like kaya puff and also kai sou = bbq pork pie with crumble on top. If you come here next time, I can reserved for you in advance first.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
