Ah Meng's Smack Noodles And Or Nee @ Taman Iskandar, Johor

By the time we reached the JB immigration, it was almost 7pm... Time for Dinner!! This time we ventured out a bit further downtown in Taman Iskandar. My sons told me that we were going for Smack Mee so naturally I thought the name of the shop was called Smack Noodles! But when we reached, I only realized that the name of the shop is Ah Meng and it is famous for their Smack meehoon.... We had a good laugh when I told them that I thought the place is called Smack!

Okay, what is Smack Meehoon?
It looks like this!
Looks like the noodles were given a "Smack" at the last moment! 
(to flatten them thus the smack!)
We ended up ordering two Smack Noodles cos they are really good!
Son busy ordering and conversing in his half-past six Mandarin....
hahahaa...
Ok, he is much better than me anytime!
As usual, good food means crowded tables....
We had their signature beancurd with mixed meat....
Otak-otak ....
Bitter gourd with salted eggs...
Another greens for those who are not into the "bitterness"
Steamed herbal chicken....
This is another "must-order"dish...
Crispy fried octopus... 
I think that was about all....
Alright, these food are for seven of us... 
Definitely not four...
We are not Big eaters... 
ahemmmmm...
And this.......!
That is the reason I wanted to come here ... is because of Or Nee!
I miss having this so-so much....
There is no place in Ipoh selling this so I am really looking forward to this yam pudding...
I ended up taking a second helping on this dessert, in fact...
It is warm yam pudding and topped with gingko nuts and pumpkin!
Really a MUST-HAVE dessert!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
