Some Ipoh Famous Snacks

Festive season or not, I still need to queue up when it comes to buying these snacks in Ming Yue confectionery.  Mooncake season is over and long gone and I thought there would not be a queue but I was wrong.  I think this shop is IN business...

Now I am "smarter".. before I go, I will call them to ask whether the "Groundnut Sweets" (direct translation-Far Sun Tong)  are available or not... otherwise the half hour drive to this place will be worthless... But one has to be patient when ringing them up... sometimes the calls will go unanswered... 

Since we have the "urge" of eating these snacks, we took the trouble to come by here and waited... and waited.... for our turn....
 When we reached the front line, what we wanted were sold out...
We had to wait for another "batch" to come out...
 While waiting for our favourite, we bought these first...
Kaya puffs at 60 sen each... fresh from the oven!
The next batch has arrived..
These are groundnut sweets that is worth waiting for...
Hot and Crunchy!
Supergirl packing for my orders....
Half kilo cost RM11.50 
And after all the wait, I ended up buying more than I really wanted to... 
That is a very bad habit of mine...
And so ... there it is.... tempting me at every hour...
 I think I know why there are always queues for these...
Firstly, they are very fresh and crunchy..
Secondly, they are not sugary sweet...
Thirdly, they have a saltish taste...
In summary... one can get addicted to it easily!

  17. This shop is so laku. Reminds me of Penang's Him Heang where customers beeline till the main road just to buy the biscuits. I like what you posted. Nice to eat with coffee.

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
