Prosperity And Treasure Pot 2012 Not 2016

SHOPPING AND WALKING MAKES ME HUNGRY FAST.... especially with those banners displayed right outside the food outlets such as this....
Treasure Pot aka "Poon Choy" in cantonese....
The banner was displayed right outside and the price shown was beyond my budget... 
Chinese New Year is around the corner and this dish will attract customers....
I think I have eaten one time at this restaurant and I did not find it as attractive as shown.... 
That was few years back... 
ahhhh... Managed to find the picture in this post....
Taken in March 2012... 
So one time is enough... 
Coming back to my post, we stepped in to have a light lunch.... 
We ordered their "Lai Mien" with this toppings....
Our light lunch..... so we shared this bowl of noodles....
And their famous "Siew Loong Pau"... 
Two for each of us... enough... 
I won't be able to eat the third one... too meaty....
I prefer their double boil chicken soup....
First thing that came to my mind when I opened this...
Oh dear, I really must do more home cooked food...
Really cannot afford to eat like this...
With the price, I can boil one whole chicken for my family...
Well, oh well... as usual, once awhile... 
That was our light lunch... nothing spectacular...
This meal will remind me that I must be frugal from now on...

  3. Not crazy about Poon Choy, tried once...enough. Not cheap. :(

    Where is this place that is so expensive? Ipoh kah? Not one of those Hong Kong franchises, I guess. I will never bother to check those out, not at those prices. Even if the things are nicer, they can't possibly be so so so nice. I am a poor and simple man. Let the rich and the famous go and enjoy.

  6. I saw the poon choy and thought so early you ate poon choy for CNY but then as I read, oh, it was a photo from your previous post. This must be the i restaurant. The siew long bao is so big when compared to the dainty DTF's siew long bao. A good lunch.

  8. Nowadays the poon choy mostly fake one. They cook the ingredients and also the soup separately and just arrange into the pot. Not as tasty as it should be anymore.

    I also prefer what you had, especially those double boiled soup. Slurppsss!

    1. Perhaps you are right... Do our own arrangement is better? hahaha... I doubt I can do it at all.. but I have tried one restaurant in Ipoh that serves nice Poon Choy...

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...
