Our Homecooked Dishes And Food In Taman Pelangi

THE KITCHEN IN JOHOR IS TEMPORARY CLOSED FOR NOW.... The cook has gone back to her hometown again.  From now on, it will be opened only during the weekends when the owner is not working, he prefers to cook a One Meal dish for himself, a very simple eater, I can say....
 His own homecooked dinner... 
He said tasty cos it is his own cooking...
And what's more, his mom is not that great either! 

Yes, each time I cook, I take pictures of the dishes so that I can make room for improvement next time... :)
Kapitan Chicken...  I didn't add in santan....
The dish should be thick and not watery like this....
*Learn from error*
 Ponteh Chicken.... 
Same here, a bit too much water added...
*room for improvement*
Simple blanching of broccoli...
Our simple homecooked dinner...
And these were what I took in Taman Pelangi, Johor... 
"Lui Char" ..... not too bad... a lot of ingredients with rice underneath... RM6
Fried Koayteow Johor style.... tasty too!  RM6
And not to be missed at Taman Pelangi is the rojak!
And drowned the food with a big bowl of gingko dessert....
For three bowls of gingko and one plate of rojak, it cost RM17...
Prices are reasonable... not too bad... 



  1. One pot meal can be very tasty when it is cooked by ourselves. This is because the cook appreciates his own effort the best! Good to know you are back safely in Ipoh now.

  2. I am also mostly cooking one pot meal for hubby and myself. Or we will drive over to the hawker centre to have some home cooked meal at our regular stall. I love your gingko dessert!

  3. When I cook for myself, I find that no matter how screw up it is, it will still be good enough and edible for myself. But then, on the other end, no matter how well I cook, I always worry it is not good enough to serve to others. Sendiri cook, sendiri makan, sendiri syok lah...

    1. You are right... anything cook for yourself sure taste good!

  4. Honestly, I think his cooking looks nicer than the mum's. Muahahahaha!!!! But of course, given a choice, I would rather somebody else cooks, I eat...lazy to cook my own.

  5. I like the kapitan and pongteh.. Can just use packets hor.. But can use Coffeemate to substitute for that santan I heard.. Pongteh is just taucu sauce right.. I like pongteh too, with lots of potatoes.. Yummzzz..

    1. I used the packets which my friend sent to me all the way from KL... something different...

  6. Your son homecooked dinner looks tasty. I like all in one pot, so easy & taste great. I am drooling over the rojak. Yummy

    1. hahaha.. Me too.. I never missed having that whenever I am there..

  7. ooh you are already back to Ipoh?? that's a short stay in JB this time.. anyway, regardless the food, I guess it's the gathering of everyone in the family that matters huh?? even lousy food also taste good if everyone's happy.. of course I don't mean your cooking with that lah, hahaha!! ^^

  8. Trial and error. Keep on trying and you will succeed. That is my motto when it comes to cooking. ^^

  9. hard to find rojak with beansprout in it..the bowl of gingko will boost your memery, haaaa..

    1. But not to drink too much, I heard.. gingko is not good if eaten too much..

  10. I also like one pot meals. Less fuss and less cleaning up. Home cooked dishes is always best even though they may not look so glamorous.

    1. Combination is also good.. sometimes eat out and in...

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
