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.....

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...
