Houston Cafe With Angela And Yin Pheng

One of my ex-classmates sent me a message through FB one night... I was so glad that she wanted to meet me before she leaves for Kuala Lumpur and after that, Sydney... She had missed the two gatherings earlier and she has not seen for the same number of years, ie. 36 years!! LOL... When I saw her pictures in FB, I really couldn't recall much... and that increases my curiousity!

So the next day I arranged to have a lunch meeting with her and I suggested Houston Cafe in town.... And she was already there when I arrived, thanks to her sister who brought her there... 
Hi Angela... Thanks for making the effort to meet up after all these years!
And when it comes to food, they allow me to do the ordering...
And I hope they enjoyed these dishes....
Assam curry fish head... 
Clams (lala) with ginger and spring onions....
Kerabu mango!
Their signature Fried Beancurd with Salted Eggs....
The lunch come with complimentary soup....
and the bill came to RM68
 
 
Too bad we did not have a much longer time to catch with...
So much to catch up and so little time....
But I am very happy to meet up with my "young friends" again!
Hope we will have another opportunity to  get together real soon...
Thanks Angela and YP!
I had a Great Time that day!!

  2. Golden mates! Nice.

    It is always great to catch up with old friends over a great meal. The tab is pretty cheap considering you have ordered fish and lala.

  5. Always good to meet old, I mean young, friends! I haven't seen some of my old classmates for years!

    Although I do the the closer ones every CNY when we go back to the hometown.

    The kerabu mango looks good! I've been wanting to make that myself.

  7. Bet your friend enjoyed the food. Everything looks soooo good and besides, even if she can get such food in Sydney, it may not be so authentic...and of course, it would be sooooo expensive.

  8. Lala with spring onions is something unique here, normally they either steam the Lala or cook with soup/ curry, at least not too common here in Penang, not too sure about Ipoh though :p

    Ken: over here there are few styles of cooking...steamed, stir fry or soupy based..

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
