Great Day Great Meal At Tea Garden, Johor

FIRST MORNING IN JOHOR... woke up to a quiet house, my son has left for work and I took my own sweet time to move around the place. This is the kind of life I like, slow pace for an elderly lady. hahahahaa... I just cannot hurry myself anymore.  Walk also slow, cannot afford to quicken the steps like those days.  One really has to be very careful, no more walking on bare feet but with soft slippers around... hahahaa.. I really do sound like an old lady... oh dear!

At around noon, I was picked up to go for the first meal of the day.  I was given a choice to pick, so nice of my SIL... and at that moment of time, the curry noodles in Tea Garden flashed across my mind... and so Tea Garden it is!

Nice weather today... and we got to park at our car at a shaded place opposite this... 
Next to the Tea Garden is the Bank of China... 
Never seen this bank before cos Ipoh does not have one yet... 
The sideview of The Tea Garden...
Desserts corner... 
Since there were only two of us, we could not order a bit of everything to try.... 
though my eyes were eyeing from east to west... 
A hot and fresh egg tart to start off.... 
My SIL wanted something simple... Chee Cheong Fun Johor style... 
For the Ipohian, she was yearning for curry chicken mee.... 
And got questioned why I prefer to eat curry in Johor?
Perhaps the food on the other side of the mountain is more special... 
Indeed it is... I like this taste of curry... not-as-spicy as the ones in Ipoh... 
These are for mouth washing after the savoury meal... 
Tapioca with fresh coconut... fresh and nice... 
Agree completely....
I certainly had a Great Meal to start off another Beautiful Day!


  1. You are in Johor?? Tea Garden. A nice place for breakfast. Yum yum. Curry mee. I want too. Been craving for one.

    Bank of China? There is one over here.

  2. Sobsssss, u should have call me, SG and Johor nearby, then can order more...

  3. I am eyeing the hot and fresh eye tart and tapioca with fresh coconut shreds.

  4. Yum yummmm!!!! Had the tapioca cake at a dinner at my friend's house last night - his wife made. So nice, but hers not coated with coconut.

    1. Normally no coconut flakes.. but this one is special

  5. I have gone to the tea garden near my place twice but I didn't eat the curry. So now I know what to try next - curry mee and tapioca! Thanks!

    1. hahahaa.. hope they do it the same as here..

  6. By looking at the photos, I would say it was indeed a great day filled with great meal!!
    Never been to Johor.. Seems too far away from me........

  7. It all looks really good, especially the egg tart! BUT, where is the tea?

    1. Oh, no tea for me, I just drank some soya milk..

  8. Same as Nancy, I am eyeing and drooling over the tapioca with fresh coconut shreds.

  9. Really been so long ago since I last visited Tea Garden. Looks not the same to me at all. I don't remember Tea Garden having those pastry counter. Hmm... if I ever have to spend a few weeks in JB again, I will come here for weekend breakfast.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
