We Went For Vietnamese

My "cook" is on strike this evening... kitchen is closed for today... leaving no choice, we ventured out to town for food. My girl suggested going for Vietnamese food, it was a first time for her coming by here.
The shop is called VNAM Kitchen Restaurant along Seenivasagam Street, Ipoh
 Quite a nice and comfortable place to dine...
Most of the staff are Vietnamese.... and they are friendly as well...
After our orders were taken, these were laid on our table in no time... 
I should have asked for lemon instead of lime...
Lemon has a stronger fragrance and the soup would be tastier... (for me!)
My order.... Vietnamese noodles with meatballs..
Definitely different from our local noodles....
I soaked in my share of basil leaves... love the smell of them...
My girl ordered Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles...
Something like laksa with added tomatoes to enhance the sweetness...
It comes with a plate of three types of meat.... BBQ beef, pork and chicken.... 
(Blurry picture due to my shaky hands!)
Friendly staff doing the mixing for my mom...
Our expressions before food...
After food, expression-less... 
LOL...

  2. Is the Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles expensive? Since it comes with three types of BBQ meat. I notice that you did not put the raw beansprout into your noodle soup. Good to eat a different cuisine now and then.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
