Foodie Explorers Strike Gopeng

IT WAS AN UNPLANNED TRIP THIS MORNING... I was thinking that I would have to "feed myself" today, no more outing as we did not plan anything the day before.

Was wondering what to eat for lunch when suddenly I heard "Ting" on the whatsApp... it was around 11am when the good news came... "Who wants to go Gopeng cos I need to do something there".... Quickly I put up the "hands up" icon in the apps... hahahahaha... 

And around 12 noon, I was picked up again and off we went to Gopeng, a half an hour drive from my house...


Retired Foodie Explorers Strikes to Gopeng....
We were aiming for this stall.... 
Heard that this stall has been operating for years... 
From father to son and now the son is almost 70 I guess.... 
Both brother and sister are manning the stall... 
Opens at 11 something... and sold out by 1pm!
We were kind of blessed... w
When we reached, he told my friend it was all finished..
Then suddenly he asked us how many bowls of porridge we wanted...
He must have done some "magic" and soon.... 
.....The food appeared on our table.... 
His special porridge.. it might be plain but the cooked with chicken broth...
*I suspected la....*
Wahhhhh... just look at this!!
The taste and all really reminded me of my childhood "steamed chicken"
Really Authentic la!!
We ordered two bowls of porridge and the chicken...
He only collected RM15 from us... 
We gave a WAHHH.... expression!
We also tried other stalls.... such as the Gopeng noodles.... 
With their signature "Fish Cake".... RM4.50
And not to be left out...
LAKSA!!
With some mighty balls... RM5
And I am blessed with the last bowl of Gingko Barley Fuchuk.... RM2...
Oh my Food!!
I mean OUR FOOD! 
And....
My Foodie Gang strikes again!

  2. You're on a food tour of the whole of Perak, is it? Aiyor...the porridge bowl so badly chipped already, shouldn't use anymore. I have steamed chicken too in my blogpost today, corn-fed, yellow colour. Nice!!! So tasty.

  5. I love porridge especially during this hot weather. The chicken portion is huge. All these for only RM15. That's a good deal.

  6. now you are exploring places around Ipoh, how interesting!!! wow, the porridge is sure very flavourful though plain, together with the chicken, i am already very satisfied for the meal.. but you add some more add-ons pulak, really a luxurious (and heavy) meal.. haha!! i love the ending part with the barley gingko desserts too~~ :)

  7. Is the signature "Fish Cake" a vegetarian fish cake? It looks quite unlike the normal fish cake.

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

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
