Famous Curry Noodles And Varieties At Keng Nam, Ipoh

IPOH CITY IS OVERFILLED WITH VEHICLES ON THE ROAD DURING THIS FESTIVE SEASON... Everywhere we go, we have to experience some kind of heavy traffic especially around the town are and we try to avoid going to those places.  However when it comes to food, we could not avoid joining in the crowd... first is finding the parking and secondly, looking for tables.  This morning was no different, we had to wait for some minutes before we could get two adjoining tables for the eight of us.

We went to Keng Nam for our breakfast, it is along Jalan Cowan also known as Jalan Raja Ekram, the shop is famous for their curry noodles and "telur goyang" *wobbling half boil eggs*.... Now thinking back, we have overfed ourselves this morning... seriously....
Curry noodles... we ordered 5 bowls....
All red and spicy looking....
Each bowl cost RM6
We ordered another two plates of noodles to go with these fish balls...  
Five plates of Chee Cheong Fun....
Mushroom sauce... 
My kids like it this way... Each plate cost around RM4
And of course, this curry pork skin and long beans cannot be missed out either.... 
Five plates cost RM20.50
Food for the eight of us... 
4 sets of  wobbling eggs with bread and 2 sets of kaya butter toast.... 
CNY is indeed all about food and more food.... 
Happy Eating, Family!!


  1. The curry noodles look awesome! I think these are soft boiled eggs. Here is how you can make them in the microwave. Crack an egg into one half cup cold water. Cover it and microwave for one minute! And you have a wobbly egg!!

  2. I would go for the yong tofu-like fish balls, clear soup and all. Not really a fan of curry mee.

    1. OH really... actually, me too... I think it is our age.. hahaha

  3. Such hearty breakfast!! Looked red and spicy. Sure warm up the tummy.

    Over here the same. Jam everywhere during CNY. Most coffee shops not opened till 4th day of CNY. Those opened, they charged higher price. Sigh.

    1. Oh dear.. that is the way it is everywhere...

  4. CNY is all about over feeding :D The curry noodles look good. I will sure order one bowl and a plate of CCF. And I can eat some more. LOL!

    1. Me too.. a bit of this and that makes a whole lot!

  5. the curry noodles so 'pekat' sooooo drooling over here!!!

  6. with youngsters around, the food you ordered is not too much because youngsters should eat more.

    1. Yes, oldies like me can nibble here and there only..

  7. My husband too loves the curry mee at this coffeeshop but i prefer the ones elsewhere (like nam chau and yee fatt). He used to go there to get his fix before going on his photography trips with his friend. So in all our years of marriage, we have not been to this coffeeshop together...hahahahah!

    1. Really! Well, I have to agree with you.. when it comes to curry noodles, I can get my fix somewhere else too..

  8. I was surprised that this CNY is the first time where there were traffic jams at NKVE around Selangor from the even until 3rd day of CNY! No wonder Ipoh was jammed and business roaring for the hawkers & shops.

    Last year I just learnt to love and differentiate the Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun with Penang's style. very nice and different!

    1. Yes, both CCF are different in their own ways.

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...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 here in …

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 street...  A …
