Coffee Murals In Ipoh

Every new day we start off our day with a good meal... but not every time the food tastes good.  I was told by one of my FB friends that the fish noodles in this shop tasted not bad.  I won't be naming the shop because the food disappointed not only me but also my friends as well.   Well, it is not surprising... not everyone's taste is the same, right?  Thus the proverb... "One man's meat is another man's poison."
My friend ordered seafood noodles... 
She told me that though the ingredients were lots but the taste is somehow bland...
Maybe not enough MSG... hahahaaa...
This is my bowl of fish noodles... 
Very pathetic looking compared to the ones I used to take....
Well..... got to try then only we know, right?
But Once tried....  never buy....
On the way back, these Giant Coffee packets caught our eyes....
Good that they painted these high up...
Can avoid vandalism....
One look at these, people will know that IPOH is famous for her coffee....  
Sip..... sippp... sippppppp.... Finished..... !
The thirst is quenched especially on a hot sunny day!

  1. yalor, never try never know.. if good, then you found a gem you could go more often.. if not good, then you have one place less to go.. and i think that "kopi-o tapao" surely is a gem!! i like it, so nice and so "Malaysian", kudos to whoever did that!! :)

    1. I am not a coffee lover, Ginny... no, the building is not a factory but to beautify the walls on an old building...

  5. Seafood noodles looks great but sad to say that it turns out to be a disppointment. Owh, I never know Ipoh is famous for its coffee and I thought it was pamelo all the while.

  8. I thought the pictures look good, then after reading I look back, they somehow look less appetizing. I guess they are right when saying, your perception will influence how you look at things hahaha.

    1. Yes, I believe so... words are very sharp.. people tend to change their perception of things after reading... but it is best to try them out before making a conclusion... especially on food..

  9. Eh those packets actually make me slurp... Altho I don't drink kopi, but wah, by looking at it also makes me feel thirsty liao..Your friend's seafood noodles looks more "hoi wai" than your fish noodles.. Coz her one more "liew".. Hmm, soup taste bland? Add soy sauce+cili padi, hehe..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
