Family Gathering At Grandview Restaurant, Ipoh

Today is exactly one month since my mom's passing.... last Saturday we gathered together and went to the cemetery to put flowers on my parent's tomb. On the way we also stopped at another cemetery to put flowers on my husband's tomb and there is an empty place beside his grave... well, naturally that is for me.... No, I didn't book it in advance.. well, on the positive side, I know that there is a "space" for me....

After all was done, we adjourned for our lunch in Grandview Restaurant.  Thanks to one Facebook group, we came to know this restaurant... I called up to book a room and we were ushered upstairs for room privacy.  
As usual, this is our ice breaker...
SMILE!
Everybody say.... YEEEEEEEE
Eleven of us..... catching up with updates....
Smile... you're on camera!
Soon...the first dish arrived....
All were finished in no time....
Next came the oink oink...
The skin was a bit "tough".....
But the glutinous rice beneath was something to shout about....
The meat was taken out and cooked as one dish........
Steamed village chicken.... tasty....
Steamed fish...
Not sure what this is called....
And their signature dish is this "BOMB" like bread.....
Need some cutting done before it can be eaten.....
The sauce is sweet sour with some shrimps and squids....
Not bad... very appetizing.....
Noodles was the last dish......
Followed by the white fungus and gingko with soya bean....
This set of meal cost RM418...
Hope to try out some other dishes another day....

  5. hmmm, even the Ipoh Food Mayor also need to rely on FB recommendations?? hahaha, so how's this Grandview Restaurant?? i looked at the first dish, this platter is always my favourite.. i guess because i love variety so i can taste a bit of everything, and probably also because usually need to wait for very very very long before dinner starts, and this is always the first dish, haha!! :D

  7. What's that thing at the bottom of that four seasons platter photo? It looks kind of interesting to me.
    For me, the winner would be the crispy oink oink skin with glutinous rice!

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...
