Best Johor Fish Ball Noodles At Lai Kee, Tun Aminah, Johor

FRESH FROM THE OVEN POST! My best taken noodles so far..... YUMMYLICIOUS!!

Just this morning we had a very nice and authentic breakfast at a shop in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah. Heard that this is a household name in Johor Bahru, operating since 1987 and still is as crowded as ever for three generations now.  Hmmmm... hope it will still be "handed down" for generations to come, very difficult to find this type of authentic and tasty food handed down from the fore-fathers. :)  Thanks to my in-laws, they brought us here this morning to have our tummies filled.

It is not surprising that we have to wait almost half an hour for our noodles to come.  Meanwhile they served us with crispy fish cake for sides.  There are two types of the crispy fish cake and we tried them both.  Slightly on the salty side if eaten just like that but together with the noodles, they blend in very well for the soupy broth was not salty at all.  As for the fish balls, they are handmade, comes out with different sizes, not snowy white as those sold on the shelves.  These handmade fish balls reminded me of my younger days' taste.... get what I mean?  Very rare to get these real fresh Ikan Parang fish balls nowadays..... everything seems to be so commercialized...

Must order these "sidekicks"
And the fish pancakes... 
When the noodles arrived half hour later, we had to order another round of "sidekicks"....
The second round of the sidekicks!

For 4 people, we actually ate around RM70 worth of fish!
Looks like we were a hungry lot... hmmmm.....

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

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
