Koh Kee At Concubine Lane Ipoh

STARTED OFF MY TUESDAY WITH A GOOD MEAL in Old Town Concubine Lane, Ipoh.  I wanted to buy some stuff from the wholesale shops in old town so might as well my friend and I have our breakfast cum lunch there for it was almost 11am by the time we parked our car.  Initially we wanted to take the Gopeng wanton noodles but it was temporarily closed till 13 March.  Then we proceeded to the Golden Fried Noodles but it was closed too... Oh dear... what I was yearning to eat this morning was not meant-to-be.

By then my friend was complaining already... "Very hungry ah... quick, just eat anywhere.... "  For me, I cannot just eat anywhere, the food must be NICE otherwise it would be like wasting my stomach space... LOL.... At the same time, I wouldn't want to see my friend "faint" from hunger and the next shop that came to my mind was KOH KEE, a very traditional Chinese style of "Chu Char" situated at the now-famous Concubine Lane.  Heard that this shop is close to eight decades, not surprising, it has been there when I was a little girl... OK, little girl means I have been eating here since the 1970s...
This is how the shop looks like from the place I was sitting... 
Everything is the same except that it has been repaired and repainted... 
The design is still the same.... very traditional-like.... 
This is the best time to be here at this shop.. 11-12pm... 
Any time later than that, be prepared to wait outside... 
We ordered three dishes.... since my friend was so hungry by then...
I am afraid she might just "faint" there and then... LOL... 
Steamed fish with ginger...
3 yolks eggs, chicken, century and salted eggs plus a dash of minced meat as toppings... 
And Ipoh's springy and crunchy bean sprouts with crispy anchoives..... 
For the three dishes with 2 bowls of rice and tea, the bill came to RM33....
Now I know why the crowd is always there... and the shop is sustaining till today...
There are many more signature dishes to enjoy.. 
Must arrange a bigger crowd to taste more dishes the next time!
LOL....

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

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
