A Coastal Drive to Sitiawan And Lumut

WHEN I SUGGESTED GOING TO LUMUT, three ladies were All for the short trip.  Oh, the trip took more than an hour actually, it was not a really short trip.  We started off from Ipoh around 11am, dropping my girl back to her Uni on the way before proceeding on to Lumut and Sitiawan.  We reached Kampong Koh in Sitiawan around 1pm, just nice for our lunch.  It has been many years since my sister last visited Sitiawan, some development could be seen here and there around the town.

First of all, the food... We just dropped by to one of the open air restaurants called Yeh Loi Heong, if I am not mistaken...
We had meehoon... 
Sitiawan's famous Fish Mall soup... 
Steamed clams.... 
Crispy fried fish called "Sar Chui" in Cantonese....
And our wide grins during the food attack....
After our heavy lunch, we proceeded to Lumut Jetty....
 
Beautiful blue skies ahead... 
We shopped around there and bought some packets of Ikan Bilis among other stuff... 
One must not leave Lumut without a bowl of Cendol from James... 
Despite the heat, we must have a bowl each... 
Fresh green cendol, red beans among the creamy santan and ice.... 
With the sweetness in our mouths, we left for Ipoh...
The coastal journey took an hour plus...
It was almost 7pm when we reached home......

  1. The first dish looks so yummy! What is cendol, a vegetable? We do not have any here. I like your blouse with the shoulder cutout, they are very popular here.

  2. A day trip is fine. I love day trip. Somehow it is refreshing and good for mind; away from the city.

    Fish maw soup. I prefer clearer than those dark sticky soup.

    Cendol. Anytime for me.

  4. That fish maw soup looks very thick and tasty. Cendol is always the best thing to eat (besides ice cream) after a meal.

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

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
