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?

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....

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
