Gathering At Tuck Kee Restaurant, Pasir Pinji And Secret Garden

I THOUGHT I COULD NOT MAKE IT FOR THE GATHERING LAST SATURDAY due to an appointment in the evening.  But it was cancelled at the last minute and I was glad that I could make it to my ex-classmates' gathering after all.  At our age now, we try to make it to meet up as whenever the opportunity arises.  At our golden age with kids all grown up and away, this is the time to catch up with our old friends... meeting up and calling each other by our Chinese names indeed brings back old childhood days and we kind of feel young least for some sweet moments!  hahahaha... 

This time we had our dinner gathering at Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji.  So nice of my friend to pick me up from my house, nowadays I do not drive out during the night if I could help it, my eyes are not so sharp now especially rainy season now in Ipoh.  Near distance is fine, anywhere further than 15 minutes, I prefer to be "picked up."  *hint, hint*
This time there were only eight of us... nice number too...
At least we can hear each other's conversation without much distraction...  :)
And our dishes consisted of the following... 
Acar as appetizer... 

Claypot braised ribs with yam... RM45 which I feel is a bit too "steeped"... 
Cabbage with almonds flakes and bacon... 
This dish is not too bad.. gave me an idea on what to do with cabbage next time..
Steamed chicken with shredded ginger... 
I prefer lots and lots of ginger to cover the chicken...
Beancurd with spinach and mushrooms... 
This dish is kind of special... stuffed mushrooms with "wai sang" and gingko... 
Claypot seafood.... 
With these few dishes, the bill came to RM254.00...
As for desserts, a few of us adjourned to Secret Garden for muffin and drinks... 
It has been a long time since I last went there... 
Nice ambience for bonding and catching up with friends and family... 


  1. looks so good, everybody looking great! Yes, yes, good to get together with all friends as often as we can, bonding for old times' sake. I enjoy that very much too. That acar looks great - that alone with rice, enough for me - so appetising!

    1. So everything and everyone looks good!! hahahaa

  2. The food looks great! All also I like. You girls all sure look fresh and happy!

  3. We love to go to Tuck Kee, especially for birthday celebrations. Never fail to order their "Mun Cheong" chicken (similar to the one u had). Looking at your pics, I think we'll try some of your other dishes the next time round.

  9. The chicken and the mushroom+tofu caught my attention.. Nowadays, if I spot anything with eggy starchy gravy with eggs and tofu, I'll think of the kids.. Kids first, me later :)

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
