Homecooked Style Dishes At Sin Hup Kee Restaurant @ Ipoh

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I last went to Sin Hup Kee restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam... This place was a frequent joint for my kids when they were very young and ever since they left Ipoh, we did not go there anymore.  Never thought of this place when they come back for their holidays mainly because there is not enough time to cover the food joints. LOL...

When my sister suggested going here for our dinner one fine evening, I was all for it.... If we want fast service, it is wiser to reach there around 6pm... and that was exactly what we did.... true enough, there were just a few tables occupied and by the time we finished our dinner, the tables were almost occupied in this double shophouse restaurant.  Their dishes are more like homecooked food at its simplest form...
Only three of us but we ordered four dishes!
How about that..... hmmmmm...

Their signature chicken in their special sauce.... 
Yes, the dishes came in small portion since there were only three of us... 
Looks like roti canai with egg.... 
This one with added minced meat... 
The young fresh sweet potato leaves.... 
And the appetizing Assam Stingray Curry... 
Yes, it is indeed very appetizing.... with lots of greens too...
And a Happy Face to say it all... 
Bill came to around RM55 or so with rice and drinks...

  6. The food looked good.

    I can't remember if I ever had sweet potato leaves. Does it taste like local spinach?

    Stingray was not popular with Chinese in Kuching so I was told but I cannot verify if there was any truth in it. I guess it is not a cheap fish when eating out.

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
