Dim Sum Area And Desserts Corner, Ipoh

NO MATTER HOW HEAVY TRAFFIC IS, it did not deter us from going and joining in the crowd at the Dim Sum area aka Leong Sin Nam Street during the Chinese New Year period.  Along the same row and around the vicinity, there are around five to six shops selling Dim Sum and Ipoh is actually quite famous for the varieties.  The one we aimed for that morning was Yoke Fook Moon restaurant.  The only setback is the parking, it is like striking a lottery if one can get a parking nearby.

We took a chance on that morning, it was almost 10am and my son said maybe there might be a parking as we turned into the road leading to the Dim Sum street.  Well, to our amazement, his wishes came true, one car was reversing out!  Wahhhh... indeed we struck lottery... parking lottery, that is!  LOL.... First hurdle overcome... and the second one is finding a table for 7 of us is another problem.  We have to do what we don't like others to do to us... we stood behind those patrons who were about to finish... LOL.... NO choice, that is the only way to make them "uncomfortable" and moved on without lingering longer than usual.  Festive seasons is always like that.... in IPOH!
The youngsters quickly filled up the table with lots of "goodies"
and replenishing them every now and then...
Eating time is great... paying the bill is another different matter..
It came to a whooping RM240...
Never happened before in IPOH till this time round.. LOL...
Fantastic Crowd at that moment of time.... 
After our brunch fix, we went to town to buy some biscuits....
Stopped by a mini corner shop for some desserts... 
Cendol at its best!
Creamy and santanic... 
One for the album while waiting to be served....

  1. Dim sum breakfast is getting to be a very expensive breakfast even in Ipoh. I didn't ask how much was our dim sum breakfast on the 1st day of CNY because the bill was settled by the young lady.

  5. Wow! That was a lot of dim sum!

    Haha. In certain places, we are required to stand behind the persons where they almost finish so we could take their table. But most places are more civilised. We wait in queue and once a table is empty, we rush in and take it.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
