Authentic CNY Meal In Jelapang

On the second day of CNY, we went to my maternal' side in Jelapang.... I told my kids that once-upon-a-time during my schooling days, I used to stay in my granny's house... In fact, I have stayed in a number of houses before when I was young, I think I am the only one in my family who loves to stay over in my relatives' house during the school hols....

Back to the topic, here we are at Jelapang New Village once again.
. ... once a year affair... LOL...  
Remember this cute house? 
 I think I posted it up during CNY 2012...
Nowadays these houses are very "authentic" already... 
With my cousins and sis.....
and soon, it was time for Dinner!!
Really love this kind of meal... 
Such authentic food...
Stewed Yam with three layers meat! (Far Yuk)
Mixed vegetables...
Jelapang Special Stir Fry Prawns with Sweet Sauce...
One of the best meals we have ever tasted..
Even the steamed chicken is "home reared!"
How authentic that can be, right?
Her smile says it all...  LOL...


  1. jelapang.. sounds so familiar lah, i think my friend stays there.. BTW, that prawns dish looks so delicious lor~~

  2. sk, u know..going to other houses to have a meal or two, is really appetizing one even though the dishes are simple..

  3. Yes, true. When having meal at other people's house, one can feel that the food is more tasty. Love the mixed vegetables & prawns but the three layers meat, give it a pass. Your youngest son is taller than his brother and you and your daughter looks like sisters, hehehe!!!!...

  4. that was indeed a cute house
    but anyways nevermind the house i was captivated with the foods

  5. Are one of these houses like the kind you grew up in, Claire? Or are they much older? Looks like you are all having such fun and great food!

    wenn: yes, kau yuk is my favourite!

  9. Our house, in the middle of our street
    Our house, in the middle of our ... ♬

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
