Ipoh Breakfast And Lunch Treasures

THIS WEEKEND WAS FILLED WITH FUN AND LAUGHTER!   One of my "Empat Sekawan" came up to visit us and we had a wonderful time catching up with another.. Four of us slumbered in my house for the weekend and it was all noise, talking on top of our voices without any restrictions... What more can one ask... Good true friends are not easy to come by... I am indeed very blessed with so many good friends!  Another capital F is not forgotten too... FOOD!

We woke up earlier than usual and took our breakfast in Pulau Sembilan coffeeshop in Taman Boon Bak.  Within three days, I came by this place for the same food... same stall....
We ordered two versions to try.... 
This is the dry version of chicken koay teow.... 
Who says Malaysian food is "healthy?"
As long as tasty, we tend to overlook the "unhealthy" side, right?
The soupy version for my friend to try....
She likes it!
Price per bowl is RM4.40

Fast forward.... for lunch we went to Sin Hup Heng Chaizhou Restaurant for plain porridge with a few selective signature dishes... 
 Salted crispy meat....
Stewed cabbage... not to be missed...
 Warm from the wok ... Salted kembong fish... very nice!
Bitter gourd with eggs... hot and nice...
Leeks is my favourite too!
 Five dishes for the four of us...  
And the bill came to RM43 with porridge and drinks.... 
I can take porridge anytime... my favourite.. 
After all, I am a Teochew nang! :)

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
