Sweating For Food In Gunong Rapat

I had another bout of "sauna" again this weekend, this "sweating endlessly" is not done under the appointment of a beautician... but perspiring under the Ipoh sun in Gunong Rapat again! See, nothing stops me... but I think this is it! Two times consecutively within a week is enough... not encouraged to take so often, right?  (especially for age group people like me here.....)
this time I wanted to try their "steamed sotong"
and it was presented like this.... the "kangkong" was perfectly made.. soft and nice..
how to resist not taking?
Ok, for this time only.... 
Another not to missed is the fried stuff that the lady made.....
For these plates, it cost RM11....
See what I meant by "sauna?"
No fan... just a canvas roof topping..
see the crowd?  
most of them order to take away...
how to stand the hot sun in the afternoon?
but for the sake of food, my patience was tested..
and they finally arrived after 15 minutes or so....
I prefer to eat it there and then...
The taste is more "original" this way.  :)
But I can't wait to finish the food and
get back to the cooling air in the car.... 
pheww...enough is enough...


  1. That's my favorite! I'm concern more on the yau yu. Is that fresh??

  2. No way will I queue for anything, never mind how good...thank you very much.

  3. My favourite. Worth the sweating, hehehe!!!...

  4. june: very fresh.. wish it is a healthy food but it is not.. :)

    stp: chat around first to pass time.. sitting down ok.. i cannot stand for long too...

    irene: can lose calories, right?

  5. Notty Claire! Wei....dont eat so much these stuffs ah...not fully well yet... later fall sick susah

  6. I didn't knew there is this place called gunung rapat despite being in Kampar for 3 years already until I read this post.

  7. kathy: now u made me scared and worried.. ok.. cut down, cut down, i must!

    anne: from your place coming to ipoh, just after simpang pulai is gunong rapat on the right..

  8. I wont sweat for food, no matter how good they are? Coz I'll feel very uncomfortable and then wont appreciate the goodness in the food :(

  9. I still can tahan the warmness but not my kids and hubby. Most probably I will have to tapau under such a hot weather..but still better than raining right? the food look delicious to me though!

  10. Sounds kind of miserable! 15 minute wait is not too bad, one evening we waited over an hour for our food!!!

  11. Sotong kangkung!!!

    I was so much in love with this dish, didn't have it for ages because I heard the sotong is bleached in 'something'?

  12. Not a fan of sotong kangkung but I can see the sotong is very huge.

    Need to get a fan la, Claire. I also cannot stand the heat

  13. you were there for lunch yesterday?? hey, i was in Ipoh over the weekend and was in Gunung Rapat to get some "heong peng" yesterday afternoon too~~

  14. even here it is freaking hot

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
