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..

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...
