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!!

  8. I have passed this restaurant many times and had no idea they serve such delicious food like the cold meat. It reminds me of the old weddings during the 70s and 80s when they served this in the 4 seasons dish. I like!! I will croon like Leo Sayer too!

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
