Cong Yin Meat Noodles At Ipoh Garden South

MOST OF THE MORNINGS, my friends and I went food-seeking... The first meal of the day is an important meal, so they say.... and each morning I am always looking forward to having my breakfast with them.  On this particular morning, it is no different, only difference is that one of us could not make it for breakfast and that left two of us only.  Well, no matter... we still need to nurse our tummy to start off the day.... hahahaha.... 

Well, what to eat and where shall we go, that is always the question on our mind.... Ipoh is very small, we seem to be taking a repetition of food now and then....

Finally after some moments, we decided to go to Cong Yin along Lebuh Raya Taman Ipoh, Ipoh Garden South.... Cong Yin literally means "Scholar" ... and I wonder why the owner has this name in mind when he opened this shop .... hmmmm..... Cong Yin is a pork noodles shop and it draws crowds especially on every weekend....

We made our orders upon entering the shop.... 
They have Bah Chang hanging in front of the stall.... 
But we ordered these as our "side-kick" instead.... 
Crispy Fried Dumpling.... 
Before the food was served, we had our dessert drink....
I like this warm water chestnut with fresh corns.... 
It cost around RM3 a bowl..... 
And after a few minutes, my serving arrived...
With pork noodles, I always opt for Loe Shu Fun...
I am not sure how much it cost now...
For a breakfast meal like this, it is normally around RM10 per person anytime!
So that explains why I do not take lunch on most days!!
hahahahaaa....

  6. The full name of this pork noodles is 状元及第 noodles (Cong Yin Cup Dai), literally translated as "May you be the first rank at the examination for the Hanlin Academy". The famous Ming Dynasty scholar 'Loon Mun Chooi' who was born poor studied very hard in order to pass with distinction in the imperial examination. He grew vegetables and sold them around the neighbourhood to earn a living. One of his neighbours, a congee seller, frequently bought vegetables from the scholar. Whenever the scholar delivered the vegetables to him, he would treat him with a bowl of porridge laden with pork innards. Despite passing the imperial exam with the highest distinction, the scholar did not forget the kindness of his neighbour. He returned to the village for the tasty porridge. 'Cong Yin Cup Dai' was the name he gave the porridge.

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...
