Kristal Jade In Gopeng

WHEN A GUEST CAME TO TOWN, my mind would be wondering where to go for our meals... If it is within Ipoh, there would not be a problem.  But if we want to go out of the way for special food, then I would Message SOS to my friends!  And that was exactly what I did when we thought of taking dinner a bit further from Ipoh... this time we wanted to go to Gopeng for dinner.  And the last time I went to this shop called Kristal Jade, I was still holding my walking stick.  LOL....

My couple friends readily agreed to my suggestion when I told them about the dinner in Gopeng.  And not only that, they came all the way from their house which is 20 minutes drive and fetched us to go Gopeng which is another half an hour away, depending on the traffic.  By the time we reached Kristal Jade, it was almost 7.45pm....just nice for our tummies to be growling with hunger and each and every dish, we salivated over it!
This is the shop... Kristal Jade in Gopeng... 
Oh, the boss personally came and served us cos he knows my friend.
and he recommended the following dishes for the four of us..... 
As appetizers, this came out first... 
It is a cold dish and they do not have this every day.... 
Pork belly with hidden jelly fungus beneath... 
The meat was tender.... the skin was springy...
Together it goes into the mouth...
hmmmm.....
Wo..wo.. yae yae... what more I can say?
Oh wait... We must dip it into these special sauce... 
Ok, now have to sing again... 
Wo Wo Yae Yae... I love you more than I can say... 
LOL...

For bitter gourd lovers, this vegetable blends well with some chunks of fish.... 
The sauce itself goes very well with our white rice.... 
Meat again... this time with the Braised Yam...
Must-not-miss-dish!
Another appetizing dish that goes very well with our plate of rice...
Rice, Rice, I simply love Rice!
Oh yes, another green dish... four greens in fact...
Long beans, 4 angle beans, okra and stinky beans aka petai!
Yes, they do blend well together.... 
Our scrumptious meal for the four of us... 
As for the cost, it came to around RM70 with drinks.... 
Many thanks to my friends who gave this treat...
I sing this again....  
Wo Wo Yae Yae...
THANK YOU is what I Love to Say!!

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
