"Petrol Hike" Pinch Me In Yam Yam, Ipoh Garden South

I normally take my family out during weekends especially Sundays. Sundays are Sabbath day, a time to rest our hands and the pans in the kitchen! :) But each Sunday we will be "cracking" our heads where to go for our dinner. Sometimes I end up browsing through food blogs for places to eat. No joke but it is true... Ipoh is quite limited now when it comes to good Chinese food.. or perhaps there are many other shops which I have not tried as yet.

Last Sunday my niece suggested going to Yam Yam in Ipoh Garden South.  I think I have been there a couple of times but for different food... this time round we have to order food suitable for my mom who is still recuperating from her "missing toe" operation...
We ordered beancurd with "Sing Kwa" (loofah)
Egg plant with fish paste....
These two dishes are suitable for my mom....
Claypot chicken cooked with shredded ginger and wine..
Half "kampong" chicken RM24 
and this is most "appetizing" and "unhealthy"
Intestines cooked with dried shrimps and lots of chillies...
After eating this, I must go for many "walking" rounds!!
The food was not too bad...but I was not happy with the price...
The bill came to RM75 which I think is overpriced for just 4 dishes....
Now I can feel the "pinch"....
Due to petrol prices up, we have to be careful in our spending now...
Eat less outside food... hmmmm.. can we?

  3. Nothing comes cheap these days x'pecially with the petrol hike. Food looks like normal home-cooked, nothing special.But once in awhile eating outside with family is quite enjoyable.

  7. The claypot chicken looks the best to me. How is your mom, did she lose her entire toe? Can she walk alright? How long will she have to diet?

  22. I like to eat the eggplant dish but don't dare to eat the sang cheong dish. 75 for 4 dishes - is it plus rice and drinks? if it is, then it is about the prices here.

  24. Your food photos are always nice and sharp. Not many bloggers can do this well besides Suituapui. I love what you ordered to eat. I am not fussy and love to eat anything.

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 …
