Kampua Noodles From SIBU To IPOH

Nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this comment out of the blue in my Facebook!  hahahahaa....

Arthur, if you would have told me earlier that you had sent me something, I would have taken a day off to wait in the house for the postman!!  hahahahaa....  By the way, I don't think he came twice, just one time around 4.33pm...cos the card was in my letter box when I came home after 5pm...
It was indeed a nice surprise after the shock... 
I didn't expect to receive a gift from Sibu yesterday.... 
There are two packets with different flavours..
One with Dark Sauce and one Original....
Inside the big packet are five individually packed noodles that comes with their special sauce.. 
Well, what did I do with them all?
I "sent" them over to another destination...
Yes, to my mother's place so that the noodles will be perfectly cooked!
My mom is an expert when it comes to cooking noodles... 
Not too soft, not so soggy like what I would end up doing... hahahaa...
See, got desserts some more... 
Sweet potato ginger "tongsui" to accompany the noodles...
Plus home-made green chillies!
Presentation might not be as nice as those sold outside in stalls or in cafes...
But what more can I ask....
Free noodles from the Sibu Food Mayor... (THANK YOU!)
And delicate hands that prepare them with passion for the hungry hearts...
Even my daughter (quite a picky eater) gave a Thumbs UP while eating!!

    2. Kampua King sends out so many? If some do not know you, they really thought you are one of the shareholders or the CEO behind the kampua manufacturing! hahahaa... Not bad eh.. they should supply you with the packets, they are really nice, my sister, mom and even my girl have some praises for them!

    3. Glad everybody love it! Ask you all to come, so sombong! Don't want to come so no choice lor...have to send to everybody to taste.

  8. It must be a very nice surprise for you. So nice of your friend in SIbu to send them. I did not know that there are instant kampua noodles. Are they only sold in Sibu?

    Wow, your mother is such a good cook. The presentation is better than those prepared by some of the noodle stalls I frequent here. May I ask how old is your mother? She cooks so well, even go to the extent of preparing minced pork, pork meat balls and lettuce to garnish the noodle. You are so blessed. :)

    1. Unfortunately, yes. Only in Sibu. And limited stock available. Have to order ahead.

    2. Can order online, Arthur or do we have to go through you next time? You really should think about it, getting orders and making some money so that you can tour far far.... good idea, yes?

      Delete
    3. Can go to their Facebook page - The Kitchen...but expensive to send lah!!! Average Poslaju charges - more than cost of each pack of the noodles. Just eat Maggi. If buying a lot, better fly over - Air Asia, may be even cheaper to do that!

    4. Thank you both for all the answers.

  9. Saw this in FB (at home) and I have to come here first thing in the morning to comment.. The noodles look delicious babe... Oohh the sauce and seasoning already included hor.. I thought just the noodles, and your mum season it herself.. Was about to ask what your mum used, coz I like cooking noodles too, and I only use oyster sauce, soya sauce and pepper, kekekeke...

    1. I also never thought got seasoning included also... we actually separated them out.. one plate with the supplied seasoning and another plate with my mom's own garlic and sesame oil... My mom normally fried the garlic and some shallots, then add in sesame oil a bit, no oyster sauce, just hak yau little bit and pak yau for taste... :) If hardworking, do some minced meat, vege and fish balls to accompany.. if more hardworking, wrap some wanton meat to go with it.. hahahaa..

  10. Can pass some to my mom ? She coming to Singapore soon ! :P

  12. Yum yum! Haven't tried kampua noodles before, how did it taste different from wantan mee? *I know Arthur will surely whack me saying they're the absolutely different!* haha

    1. These kampua are now individually packet-ed while wanton noodles are not... when we cook them, we have to rinse the wanton noodles whereas kampua ones, there is no need to rinse... when it comes to texture, wanton noodles are springy while kampua is softer and smoother in texture... this is what I notice..

  15. We like the Sarawak type of mee..there are 3 places that we frequent here in KK just to have our Sarawak mein. They usually top with minced meat. This one packed with sauce are so convenient.

    1. Each place has their own special sauce and flavour, right? Yes, I didn't realize that they were individually packed until I opened them up...

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
