Souvenirs And Marketing In Victoria Market

So much to buy but we didn't actually bought a lot as yet.  We always ended up buying souvenirs that we don't use and giving out to our family and friends.  But old habits die hard... ladies are ladies.. we still want to grab stuff we find fascinating and cheap, right?  Shopping is endless for us... more pictures here...
Ok, what shall we buy?
Doing some bargaining... hahaha...
But most stalls have fixed prices...
Most of the stalls have the same style and designs..
Should I get these towels.... er... I guess no need ler... right?
Someone was caught in a bored mood!  Oh my!!  I didn't know that till I saw these pictures... 
He is such a "NICE BOY!"  LOL....
The shopping continues....
My girl ended up with a pink cap only $3... 
And finally in the vegetable and fruits section.... 
Need to buy back some for our lunch.... 
Our first apartment cooked meal 
Here is our menu for the day....
Love these fresh scalloops... $10 here...
So sweet.. just stir fry them and we get their sweet juice... 
Slowly does it.....
We ended up cooking spaghetti with ham and bacon... fresh scallops and lightly pan fried salmon!
Got to do this again before we leave.....

    1. Ya...going overseas, if you buy food and cook your own, it is a lot cheaper than eating outside...and nicer too. I think their salaries too high...so the cost is charged to the customers in the prices of the food.

    2. Yeah, you had a point there... normal meal is around $10 so might as well cook some nice meals with that kind of money... but most meals taken out too.. wanna try the western food..

  9. Was about to ask yesterday did you buy some food from the market to cook in your apartment, and today, saw your post liao cooking in the apartment, yay! Oh yes, agree with you "lui yan chin yung yi chan" (ladies money easy to get).. Haha.. Almost anything also we can buy.. Drop me anywhere, I can buy anything although I don't plan to buy anything.. Your home-cooked lunch looks good, I like. But I prefer white sauce to bolognaise.. The next time maybe can get your kids to do carbonarra cream sauce.. Can't wait!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
