Weekend Getaway For Pontian Noodles In Pontian

DURING THE WEEKEND, we made a one day trip to Kukup.  We have never been there and I was certainly ALL ready to anticipate this outing.  The guys did some "homework" beforehand, how to go and most important, what to eat on the way.  I just sit back and relax, wherever they lead me, I will go.  :)

We started the journey only after we woke up refreshed and energized and by the time we had our first meal, it was almost noon in Pontian.  Yes, we took a 45 minutes drive all the way to Pontian, a small town which I always hear of but never been.  Mention Pontian, the first thing that came to my mind is the wanton mee, a very common eatery in Johor.  I have tried eating Pontian noodles near my area but there is nothing much to shout about.  But since we are going for the original Pontian wanton mee, I am looking forward to trying the "real thing"....
This is the shop that came up "1st" on the reviews in Google... 
Plenty of people... good sign?
While waiting for our orders, we had these side snacks to keep our mouths occupied... \
Otak-Otak is the name.. made of ground fish meat mixed with spices... 
My son called it Brain Food... LOL..

Two types of Pontian Noodles here...
Either take it with black sauce....
Or another flavour is mixing it with tomato sauce...
I wanted something different so I ordered this for myself..
Surprisingly, it was not that bad... 
At least they tasted so much better than the ones I had before...
*Original is always better, right?*
The noodles are different from Ipoh wanton noodles..
Texture and the taste are different... 
More on the Kampua noodles, I would say.... 
Anyway, it is not cheap... RM5 for a bowl... 
and comes with a bowl of three small fishballs and three wantons... 
hhmmmm...... 
Ate and Tarpau-ed some Fish Crackers back.... 
Soon... we were on our way to Kukup, a tourist spot for both locals and Singaporeans....

  7. The noodles all look so good! I bet your girl would love them, I know noodles are her favorite. Maybe one day you will go with her. What are the green and black stalks, are they involved with the cooking?

  9. My ex boss from Singapore told me that Kukup is full of life at night due to the Singaporeans. They find the food too cheap and so delicious! Good for our economy lah.

    I remember that kind of noodles with tomato suace gravy and it's nice! Now where did I eat that?

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
