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....

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
