Tropical Fruits And A Homecooked Meal Before Departure

Leaving Ipoh without enjoying durians is unheard of.... due to some recommendation from friends, some from FB to confirm this too, we came upon this special uncle with one leg.  He is well known for selling quality durians in Ipoh Garden...he sells at the pavement of one of the shops along the Shell Petrol station..
He doesn't have many durians... but I heard most of them are good taste!
Among durians, he also sells mangosteens and duku langsat..
The fruits are now in season...

My boys patiently awaiting for Uncle to choose the durians...
 
Uncle is now performing his task....
 While Andy is looking on.....
Uncle asked him nice or not each time he opens one... 

Soon all are opened and ready to be packed... 
We bought 4 for RM37.... cheap!
Before my boys left Ipoh, a homecooked meal was prepared ....
This is their special request dish....
With durians as desserts and a homecooked meal, 
I hope they find this homecoming trip a worthwhile trip!
Till we meet again... 
Not sure when but I hope it will be soon! :)

  4. Bet that was the best meal they had when they were home. Nothing can ever beat mum's cooking, that's the bottomline. Back to missing them again, eh? At least I get to see my girl once a week, not too bad.

  13. Hmmm, I wonder why u don't cook for your family when they go back home. My mum makes sure we have home cooked food every time we go home as to her, eating out is unhealthy and expensive. That is how she shows her love for us.. 😍

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
