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!

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
