Buttered Fish At Wing Kee Restaurant, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

Classes are going to start tomorrow... and as usual before she goes back, she wants to consume all the food she loves so that the longing will not "taunt" her and make her miss Ipoh food... LOL....

One of her favourite dish is found here in Wing Kee Restaurant, she loves that one dish there where other places do not have.  Since there were only three of us, we ordered three dishes thinking that they would come out in small portions.  But to our surprise, each dish was as big as the other and I think they were enough for five persons instead of three...
Their steamed smooth eggs garnished with onions is a good choice....
Kids will love this dish... 
But for three persons, we really have to take big scoops on our plates....
so much so that I will not want this dish again for the next few months or so... LOL...
Saved by these sourish and spicy vegetables.. at least it neutralizes the steamed eggs...
Very nicely cooked... *gau suin gau lak*
There.... my girl's favourite dish of all times...
Only this restaurant has it... "Buttered Crispy Fried Talapia" 
*Lai Yau Yue*
Crispy and nice... each piece taken has a crunching sound...
Tell me... healthy or not...   LOL..
But thank goodness, they took the trouble to strain out the oil...
Just look at that... 
Enormous portions, right?
Can feed a family of five or six... surely....
Ok, as for the bill, it came to RM52... phewwww...
I was expecting something over RM60...

  1. The price is very reasonable. The second dish is so sour and spicy - will take many bowls of rice to finish eating it.

  5. Hi Claire, thank you for commenting on my post. Upper crossed syndrome is caused by back postures so it can be fixed. If not fixed when old will become really bent and cannot straighten up anymore.

    2. Hello Claire, I have updated my post to include two links on how to identify UCS and how to fix it. Perhaps you can check out my post again. I think in summary it means doing the correct exercise to fix it and don't hunch over computers with bad posture for a long time in one sitting.

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…
