An Exotic Chinese Dinner Treat By Mama

After 10 days away from Sacramento, we were finally back in the ranch before dusk.  After cleaning up and unpacking, my sister made another "wise suggestion."  She asked us whether we wanted to try the famous Chinatown restaurant or not, to her, it is the Best Chinese Restaurant in Sacramento!  This suggestion put a wide smile on my face... after staying for nearly three weeks, I really miss having a proper Chinese set dinner....
We were early... that was the best part.. the food would come out fast, right?
This is a set dinner offer... 
For $70usd or so, we got to taste 7 + 1 dish...
Add another $2usd, they gave an extra bonus dish.. LOL...
Just look at the American chicken..... super fresh looking, right?
stewed pork ribs with celery...
  fish fillets with greens...
this is special.... it came out in a edible basket!
taste something like our "kacang puteh" 
do we have this "design" here in Malaysia?
then comes the Red Lobster!! 
but not as "giant" as the previous post .. but equally fresh!
this is the Bonus Dish...  $2usd to top up....
For these dishes above with soup, the bill only came to $70plus... 
Isn't that super cheap for those earning and living in US?
Over here, I guess we have to pay around RM250-300 for this set of dinner...
This meal was sponsored by my mom...
I remember her telling us that we should give her a chance to TREAT us!
So sweet of her... LOL...

  19. I like the exterior colour of the chicken, but the inside doesn't look too cooked; it's still red. I need my chicken to be thoroughly cooked. Hahaha!

    I must admit the price is very attractive!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
