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....

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...
