Ipoh Food In Gourmet Square, Ipoh Garden

We reached Ipoh around 6pm, rested for an hour or so before we adjourned for our dinner.  My friend wanted to go to our "old place" (loe tei fong) in Ipoh Garden.  Yes, we gathered at Gourmet Square for our light dinner.... It is our old place because we first started to come by here during the 1970s..... It was called "Mushroom Stop" then... (Tung Ku Teng) ... 
We ordered just a few varieties cos we wanted to go for our second round dinner in town...  
Sotong with Kangkung... 
I was told that the sauce is made from pumpkin....
No wonder so nice.....
Hongkong Chee Cheong Fun...
Melts in the mouth... trust me! 
hahahahaa...
A bowl of mixed vegetables with fish paste...
Oyster crabs... 1kg.. RM50
Tasty but a bit spicy...
Next time I must tell them to lessen the chilli....
 We are light eaters, right?
Cos we were thinking of going to town for something special...
But unfortunately, it was not opened...
We decided to go home...
There were still much catching up to do in the room...
*Slumber Party* for the girls!

  1. Ahh I miss HK style Cheong Fun!! This one looks plenty good! I used to have it when I was still living in KL, the pasar near my home has a stall that sells a very awesome one. Nowadays when I go back, my mom will complain about me being fatsss and the only breakfast I get is fruit blended juices and whole wheat organic bread. In Penang need to go to the dimsum places super early, if you go to Maxim at 8AM like me, they are usually sold out :(

    1. I really got to laugh when you mentioned your mom complained you are fatssss... hahaha.. can eat means prosperity, as Chinese used to say... but you are very blessed.. can get fresh fruit juices.. that is really healthy! Maxim? I have been there several times.. you should try their fried rice at 11am.. very fragrant!

  2. Not a fan of sotong kangkung, but I like that soup with fish paste. Ching ching dei, I like.. Dont like 'dry' crabs. Prefer the 'wet' ones with lots of butter gravy and can dip and eat with fried mantou..

  4. All the food looks so tempting but the crabs I give it a pass as I find it very troublesome to eat.

  10. Oh, I like to eat sotong kangkung and the vege in the fish paste bowl. I love to eat crabs too but then too lazy to eat them so I think it has been a year since I last ate them. This is a food court, right?

    1. Yes, this food court is very busy during the weekends...

  11. This reminds me of the Open Air Market in Kuching, one of those places in the 70's for young people to gather and hang out and eat - http://suituapui.wordpress.com/2014/07/12/open-air/
    It certainly looks very popular still - so many people. Ooooo....lovely crabs.

    Sure is nice to get together with old friends and go raun raun (Sarawak Malay for round round) and catch up with one another, recalling the good old days. I really enjoy that so much. Great...with new(er) friends too. Hint! Hint!

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...
