Dinner For 10 At Weng Kee Restaurant, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

FOOD MARATHON CONTINUES DURING THE FIRST WEEK CHINESE NEW YEAR...

I was very undecided of which restaurant to go to on one evening and I ended up making  a booking with three restaurants two days in advance and on the day itself, I had to cancel two of them.  Three of the restaurants I booked are Kok Thai, Pavilion and Weng Kee, all around the same vicinity of Ipoh Garden East and South.  Finally I settled for Weng Kee restaurant, it has been a long while since I have been there and when I messaged my girl about the choice of venue, she replied with a "Hurray" ... With that word, I know that I have made the right decision.  Sons?  Oh, they are not picky eaters as me and my girl.  Anything is fine with them... LOL....  

There were 10 of us for that evening dinner and we ordered 7 dishes....
The happy and "close eye"  smiles from the 10 of us.... 

Their signature Pork Ribs minus the bones... 
Kapitan chicken
Mixed vegetables...
Their signature dish again.. Ownmade Beancurd..
Yummy steamed yam with lard...
Recently read an article that lard is good for us.... 
True or not?
Claypot eggplant with fish paste... 
And the highlight of the dinner is the Buttered Fish... crispy fried...
That's her favourite and she ate most of it!
The  dinner came to RM215 inclusive of rice and drinks....
After our dinner, we adjourned for our desserts!!
A real fattening evening, no doubt about that..

  5. Not sure how good lard is but when compared with trans fat, eating lard is better than eating trans fat. Buttered fish is my pick too out of all the dishes because I prefer fish to chicken and pork.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
