"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.

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... 

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
