We Love Ipoh Group

I joined a group in Facebook recently, it is called We Love Ipoh, City Of Good Food. The group title itself is so alluring that I could not resist being a member. There are so many places in Ipoh that I haven't "explored" as yet where food is concerned. And coming by to this group, I have come to "profit" so much on exotic food places.   We started off by sharing our Ipoh food places in Facebook and from there, we get to know one another.... So imagine how "foodiehappy" I was when one of the group members invited me to have lunch with them! 

It was on a Friday lunch break when I drove to town for our lunch rendevouz in Yum Yum Restaurant.  Apart from the food, I was looking forward to meeting my new friends who share the same interest as I do...
"The Foodie-holics!"
(Hope to meet up with more members later!)
We ordered the Yum Yum lunch set for Friday....
Siamese Laksa!
Thick santan-ic gravy greeted me.....
More flavourful with lime juice....

And crispy "foo pei" as accompaniment...



 A plate of nasi lemak to go round the table.... 
Looks good... but I didn't try cos I was really Super Full...
Full not just with food...
But with Fun and Laughter!
So Blessed... 
Looking forward to another Foodie Outing withmy New Friends!

    2. Haha!! Young indeed!! :-) I have been encouraging my mom to use blogs and social media to meet up new people, go for new food and try new things....I think it's a very healthy lifestyle. To have a community that could be an encouragement to one another! Way to go!!

  2. Wahhhhhh!!!! Facebook group also got meet-up. I did not join any, anyone added me I would just leave the group. Too many shares on my News Feed... some/many not even relevant, say, Sibu/Sarawak food...they post pictures of what they had in Penang/KL/Melaka...or things they cooked at home, did not look nice even. Tsk! Tsk!

  7. I also joined a local foodie FB group called Kuching Food Critic. I were also amazed by how many places and food that I have not been and tried in Kuching.

    That was a very good idea to gather and meet more friends. At least you have a common interest ie food! ^^

  15. It is so nice to have such a group to gather always. It is so difficult to start our own blogger gatherings in KL. Our jobs and home locations are like 1-2 hours apart.
    The guy in red T-shirt is very familiar to me!!!

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...
