A Foodie Trip From Ipoh To Chemor

YAY!!! TODAY IS THE DAY!!
Through "watsapp", we the three retirees finally met up  this morning at 10.30am... I was all ready to be "picked up" by my ex-colleagues and we were looking forward to a day of Food! 
The Foodie Trio!!

We started off with a Duck Project and the place is called Old Friends Restaurant.  It is located on the main road leading to Chemor town.  The Duck project had been put off many times before due to our busyness and this morning we finally made it to that place.... 
 
Though we reached there around 11.30am, the ducks were nearly all "booked"...
There were only two left for sale, we overheard....
This is the first time I get to taste this...
No wonder they get sold out fast... the meat was really tender and "yup mei!"
Don't need any sweet sauce to go with them at all...
Thumbs up for the food!
After our scrumptious lunch, we continued on with our foodie trip to a small town, Chemor...
We stopped here at this shop famous for their fish head and seafood noodles....
 
Since we were already "half-full" we ordered just a bit to try... to satisfy our curiosity...
A bit of this and that... fish maw, fish paste and wanton...
And the soup has this cilantro taste which really suited our taste buds!
 
We planned to go there some day to try the seafood noodles and fish head! 
Worth making another trip there.. perhaps next Friday??? 
Along the same row, something caught our "beauty eyes!"
hahahahaa...   
 DURIANS! 
 There and then, the vendor opened up one for us to eat....
And my friend ended up buying the rest of them!
 
The durian vendor is so cute...
And the durians are Very creamy and bittersweet!!
 
 Ok, we promised him that we would advertise his durians...
They were sold for RM8 each... good buy.. 
They are called "Da-nau"
 
Oh, he has these "Crystal Jackfruits" too... 
Did I get it correct? 
Yes, we need to "advertise" these as well... 
It is all in a Package.. hahahaha...
Otherwise we couldn't get them cheap... 
  He even gave us his phone number... 
Call him in advance so that we won't be disappointed!
Mike Mar... no joke!!
Durians all sold out to my friend...
Even coconuts were finished too!
Everyone was Happy And Satisfied with the outcome in Chemor.... 

But that is not the end of the food trip for us....
From Chemor, we drove all the way to First Garden to visit this lady....
Her smooth homemade Tau Fu Far!
Just look at me!  My double chin is coming up next!
Rounded faces could be seen even from afar!
Yes, our foodie trip from 11am till 3pm....
Phew... what a Full-Filling Day!
Thank you for the Food-Fillment, ladies!

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...
