Simple Lunch At Kampong Koh, Sitiawan

The next morning we set out from Ipoh around 11am for a day trip to Sitiawan. It has been more than a year or two since we last ventured out to this coastal town in Perak. It took me more than one hour drive to reach Kampong Koh and we chose Ah Pek Yeh Loi Heong restaurant for our lunch.
Angry Bird goes well with fresh coconut while waiting for the food to arrive...
While waiting for our food, we shared a Kompiang.. famous biscuit in Sitiawan...
And some sweet potatoes dumplings as appetizers...
We ordered Lala with soup and it came out like this.....
Cucumber boil with Lala... good combination...
The cucumber is soft and the clams are fresh....
Gonna try this one day at home!
Ordered only Flower Crabs cos only two of us can eat these.... 
Crispy fried fish... 
Cannot go without the mee sua with chicken in red wine... 



Four dishes for the four of us....
Bill came to RM75...

  1. Looks different from Sibu Kong piah. How's the taste? I like the fish & mee sua but flower crab, give it a pass.

  2. HHhmmmm, now I want to eat the mee suah. Did you two finish eating the flower crab? Looks quite difficult to eat with all the shells. Not too expensive. Don't think a lunch with crab can be termed as simple, hehehe.

      Many from here in colleges and universities around there also went and tried or their friends bought back for them - of course, in the case of the latter, cannot say lah...not eaten on the spot when hot, so not nice already.

      Delete
    8. Well, as I said, it depends on individual buds and also how fresh it is... or where the place that sells.. not all are the same so cannot finalize how tasty it is... some may like it and some may not... so we must try them before we come to any conclusion...

      Delete
    9. Hmm...I've been trotting and traveling around Malaysia these days. If there is one thing that I learned about travel is that one should never judge food by pictures. Should try yourself den u will know it is nice or not. Must keep an open mind...else...well...like they say...the world is like a book. Those who doesn't travel...read just one page. The same applies to food.

      Delete
    10. Good to hear that you have been traveling lately, Cleffairy... Talking about food, I really have to say this again and again.. it depends on individual taste buds...

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...
