My Not-So-Healthy Dinner In Gunong Rapat, Ipoh

Yes, I know I am not being obedient this evening... when my friends came to pick me up for dinner, they suggested going to Gunong Rapat for fried noodles.  Fried noodles?!?  Oh dear, my poor throat.. but I didn't want to be a damp blanket because another friend was waiting for us at the stall...

Leaving no choice, I followed suit, silently praying that my poor body will be able to endure the "heat" from the "wok."
 We reached here around 7pm... it was still bright then....
This stall is just opposite a primary school in Gunong Rapat 
and they used charcoal to fry the noodles...
A rare sight nowadays....
 We sat as far as we can to avoid the heat from the wok...
Famous for their Sambal Belacan... Great combination with the noodles!
My "unhealthy" dinner for tonight....
Cockles, prawns and eggs with meehoon and flat noodles...
Cost around RM4.50 per plate...
Another not so healthy kind of dessert....
Plate of rojak (various fruits) from a stall in Perak Stadium food court...
Small portion cost RM7...
Dinner is completed....
Hope my voice will still be "around" tomorrow....

  1. The fried noodles looks too good to resist. Hope your throat is alright after taking the fried stuff. Drink tea to get rid of the heatiness in your body.

  3. Stir fry only. Not deep fried so your throat should be ok if you drink more leong sui after that.

  11. Haha, I am definitely more obedient than you...I won't mess with a sore throat especially...it can take so long to recover! Hope you get well soon :-)
    The prawns do look very juicy, and it's amazing that they have five of these in a plate of Char Koay Teow! The prawns in Penang's Char Koay Teow are larger but they are very rare and precious though :-P
    Take good care, and stay away from unhealthy food! ;-)

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
