Pak Sook Koong With Noodles

Pity my poor girl... been eating hostel food all these while except for weekends or when she comes home. That is why whenever she is home, I will try to take her to whatever she wants to eat ... and that includes the frequent Japanese food...they are her favourite....

Other than the sashimi, sushi or whatever "shi" in the Japanese menu, the other protein she likes to take is FISH.. and not just any fish but Steamed Fish...  and this was how I did it last Sunday.... 
I bought a Pak Sok Koong (Ikan Baung) in Canning Garden market..
It was still swimming in the tank...
...but it wasn't when I collected it from the fish monger after 10 min.
Cost only RM15...
Easily charged RM40-50 if taken in restaurants...
then I blanched a plate of greens to go along with the steamed fish...
my girl wanted Korean noodles instead of rice....
and so be it....
Have you ever eaten steamed fish and vegetables 
with a big bowl of noodles?
That's about it...
For this meal of RM20, it is indeed satisfying...
I think I will do this whenever possible...
At least she has some proteins to take back to the hostel..


  1. haha im not really in to fishes haha any chicken dish?

  2. You are a good chef...can cook so well.

  3. So yummy! I have only eaten steamed fish and vegetables with rice, not noodles! : )

  4. home cooked food are the best. I love steamed fish and other fish dishes, they are healthier and delicious.

  5. No, I would eat with rice. Oooo...your fish looks like restaurant standard. So impressive. Drool! Drool!

  6. I like steamed pak sok koong, but I don't see Taiping folks appreciate this dish. Maybe they find the fish quite muddy-smelled.

    RM15 for that huge fish + protien, very worth the price :)

  7. Love this fish very very much especially the essence to go with a big bowl of rice.

  8. mecoy: fish is better than chicken :)

    mery: someone is laughing out there when u said that.. hahaha..

    foong: me too..first time.. :)

    agnes: fish are more expensive too..

    sharon: thank you!

    yvonne: i think this type of fish is quite expensive if eat outside.. normally i also dont order..

    yeeling: yes, u r right! not with noodles definitely..

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
