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.
