Our First Dinner At Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

By the time we reached Johor, it was almost dinner time!  We quickly unloaded all our stuff in the living hall and set out to fill our hungry tummies!  As my son drove, he showed me all the shops that serve food during the daytime... since they are working during the day, I need to know how to get food for my girl and I... both of us will be "stranded" if we do not know how to drive around the vicinity....  hahahaa...

Back to our dinner, we were taken to this shop here called Uncle Pou Wok!  What a cute name...
The crowd was already there when we reached....
Food here must be Good just by looking at the occupied tables....
Uncle Pou Wok... (Repair Kuali) or does it have a different meaning in Mandarin?
Most of the tables were fully occupied...
This noodles came within five minutes after we ordered...
We were wondering why the fast service....
Seems that this was not our order... but then too late... we already "emptied" it within minutes!
The noodles were very tasty... 
Lots of lard and fragrant sambal to go with it!
Soon the steamed chicken followed suit...
Young "Siew Bak Choy"
And this is their signature dish....
Fish Soup with Yam and other varieties...

 As usual, the camera gets to take everything in.....
Including us humans....
And when everything is already taken.... finally...................
Let's start!!

  2. Love the steamboat!!! I like!!! And the Hokkien mee too. The yellow colour of the steamed chicken - is that natural? Corn-fed chicken and hence this colour?

  4. Their steamed chicken and fish Steamboat are very good. However, I don't like their attitude in one of their outlets and never patronize since then.

  10. I not trying to say sibling love is not good but sometimes it may bring negative effect. By looking at the second photo, if people don't know your family, people may think that your daughter got BF already. Then she will lose a lot of opportunities ( I guess she not lack of opportunity). My ex-female colleague told me about this logic.

  11. The food is so delicious looking and that's my type of choices! I always enjoy looking at your kids in the photos. They appear like your siblings and friends instead which is very good! They get older but you get younger pula. Muahahaha

    It is so hard to find happy families nowadays. Well done mama!

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
