Gunong Rapat Laksa

For Elin and I, we called it Laksa day! We went all the way to Gunong Rapat for the taste of some sourish and spicy soup with white round noodles...But to our dismay, the road side stall was not opened yet.  I guess it opens at 2pm instead of noon.  This road side laksa stall is just outside the village town hall, very easy to locate. 

Feeling disappointed and leaving us with no choice, we proceeded to the Main Road in Gunong Rapat... our hearts and minds were still on Laksa, Laksa... and we came by here...
Very easy to locate too... shop just facing the market...
Their special table.....
What is this called? Hexagon or what?
 Presentation is out... right?
Not as dainty as those in Penang..
Ordered these too... 
How was the taste?
I still preferred to go to the road side stall.... 
The "kick" there is much stronger than this... 
But not many people like to eat at roadside under the hot sun and shade....
But Reanaclaire does not mind... 
She will just tie up her hair and enjoy the Laksa!

  3. Hmm...this is laksa???? Looks totally from our Sarawak laksa. Sometimes roadside food are nice but the minus point is that it is very hot to sit under the shade.

  7. What is that with the lettuce and broth in the next to last picture? It looks like chicken? You are right, it IS a hexagon table, what a wonderful idea, and so much better for eating than round!

  8. This is assam laksa right? Assam laksa tastes sour but other types of laksa do not. Sarawak laksa does not taste sour.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
