Bonding At People's Park Cheong Loi

HAVE WALKER WILL GO!!!

This morning I woke up at around 10am after some staggered sleep during the early dawn.  First thing I logged in was my whatsApp messages and it was good news when I read my group's messages.  Someone suggested going for lunch in a secluded shop in old town and someone was also willing to pick me up!!  YAY!!  I wanna go...... and hop hop again!!

This shop is located in old town inside People's Park... I really couldn't imagine that there is such a stall inside the narrow lane here.

In fact the shop is right at the end of the small shops.....
Right at the very end... 
Called Cheong Loi.... *Future*
Bigger version of the signboard...
The last shop here..... the tables were almost full when we arrived around 12pm...
Thanks to my friend who arrived early to book a table for the five of us....
Most of the tables were waiting for food....
Some are prepared food....
The chef behind the crowd....
Another one in front... working without stopping...
My young buddy with her sweet smile....
And one with all grins only.....
Waited almost half hour before the soup arrived... old melon soup...
Then the fresh clams came.... fresh and tasty!
Stewed pork knuckles!
Stir-fried kangkung.... 
And the best dish was the steamed "Wan Yue".... 
We were asked whether we wanted the whole piece or just half...
Of course... The WHOLE piece!!
And for the four dishes with one soup, the bill came to RM67!
Thank you for bringing me for my first meal of the day...
It will last till my dinner time cos I ate so much!!!!

  1. The makan place looks shabby but the food is so good! Usually places like this, no frills no glamour, but can get good food at affordable prices.

  2. Such a lovely place. I would love to go there. These places have character, not like those new, lifeless, pretentious places. Sad that there are not many left now...

  6. So many years in Ipoh and we didn't even know about this place. It is so well hidden.

  7. wow, indeed a very retro looking place but this place is surely attracting people to dine there, look at the crowd!! and you mentioned the kitchen crew work non-stop and you had to wait for 30 minutes before the dishes started serving.. i see the photos and definitely worth the wait, all looks so delicious~~ :)

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....

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

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...
