Special Steamed Fish In Chemor

COME MONDAY MORNING... I had an early breakfast with my ex-colleagues again, I forgot to take a picture of us, really "muhibbah-styled"... It is nice to get together once awhile to catch up with old and new ongoings that is happening around us. We had breakie in Silibin and I had capati, seems I am into Indian food these days!

 Immediately after my breakie, I parked my car in the office and waited for my two "foodie buddies" to join me for lunch!  Our destination was Chemor and it took almost half an hour to reach.  Anyway, it was still early when we reached Chemor... And we were quite undecided as to which to eat... Fish head noodles or steamed fish with rice??   Then we settled for the latter....
Before we arrived, my friend told me that I might not like what I see... 
Well, nothing so shocking to me... I am used to seeing and eating at sheds....
As long as the food is GOOD!
To quench our thirst, this is a good choice... 
Fresh Umbra Juice in Anchor Beer glass... hahahaa....
WIB to imitate MIB... 
And a cookie to go as "appetizer" before the meal.... 
We were the early birds and we had to wait for more than half hour 
for the chef to prepare the dishes... 
He was still busy "chopping" up the ingredients when we arrived...
We ordered eggs fried with bitter gourd....
Tapioca leaves in garlic... 
And their Special is Steamed Talapia with lots of Garlic, Ginger and Chilipadi!
The fish has no smell and very fresh too...
Three dishes in all... 
And the bill comes to RM47 ($12usd???)
Oooopppsss... don't start eating first... 
Somebody's camera got to "eat" as well before we humans do.... 
hahahaha...

    1. Got difference ah? Fried egg with bitter gourd.. :)

    2. Got!!! Of course, there is a difference! This is like bitter gourd omelette - a lot of egg, can hardly see the bitter gourd. Usually, it is fried bitter gourd with egg added, mostly bitter gourd and not so much egg. Salted egg would be great too...and some use century egg as well. All nice!

  3. I like 2 types of steamed fish.. The "cheong jing" (taucu sauce) and the normal garlic+ginger+sesame oil sauce... I like the fukua chin tan too, but normally I'll stick to fu-yong egg coz the kids like it..

  11. I always enjoy meeting up with ex colleagues! There is more to gossip and talk without reservations than to meet relatives! Oh dear, relatives can be good actors.
    Wow! Yummy Umbra juice again. When I posted about Umbra juice, it was like kicking up a storm here as it is very rare to find this drink in KL. I believe you guys enjoy ample healthy juices easily in Ipoh.

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
