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!!


  1. Next round you in Johor, i hop over to find you, you bring me there ya, wink wink...

    1. hahahaa... wink wink... so far I don't know where they offer good food! Let me get used to driving around... then more nice food to eat!

  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?

    1. For that plate of chicken, it is RM25 .. not sure about colouring or not.. but some chicken does have this skin colour..

  3. All looks great especially the steamboat.

  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.

    1. Oh, you mean they have other branches elsewhere too!

  5. yeah, what a cute name!! literally it means "repairing the wok", figuratively it means "resolving difficult problems" (or to be more exact, to handle the shit, hahaha).. the dishes all looked good leh, and i notice you actually place our order according to the signboard on the wall?? haha, big big picture sure no wrong right?? :D

    1. Yes, more or less.. ordered their signature dishes... next time can try other dishes..

  6. I'm waiting for you to explore more JB food! Might be helpful to me if and when I travel there for work again ;)

    1. Oh when are you coming down again? So far I am still new and haven't really found anything interesting and yummylicious ... hahaha...

  7. Their signature dish looks the best to me! My favorite here is the two pictures you put together, they are great pictures! Especially you and your girl.

  8. I too like their signature dish...especially when you mentioned yam as one of the ingredients. Looks like a very popular place.

    1. Yes, or perhaps it is CNY festive season now...

  9. Ooooo yeah you must 'ying lou' (recognize road), nearby places lor, for me I must know how to get to the coffeeshops, mini marts and clinic, thats all, very important to me.. I love that pot of fish soup, so much liew inside..

    1. Right... and I am quite hopeless in roads directions!

  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!

    1. Wahhhh.. everytime you say that... I really must go for plastic surgery cos these pictures normally are quite deceptive...

  12. Eating spree again. huh? I like lah like that! The soup looks good with so many ingredients inside.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
