No More So Called Economical Food

WOKE UP LATE THIS MORNING.... So ended up having oats as breakfast and for lunch, I went to Farlim with two of my friends.  We had something really simple, no frills and fancies.  Supposedly to be very "economical" and they are actually called "economy food" during my younger days, but... alas, nothing is economical anymore these days.  Nevertheless, I still yearn for this type of food, it brings back good old memories from the younger days!

This shop is situated in Farlim, Menglembu, half an hour away from my house and it only opens at 11am for brunch and lunch.  Thanks to my friend, she just gave me the name of the shop, it is called A1 Phang Leng and the address is Laluan Perusahaan Menglembu 2, Kawasan Perusahaan Menglembu.... and we ordered these for our eating pleasure. :)

Patrons at noon... 
A plate of vegetarian noodles... RM2.20 each...
We ordered 2 plates....
7 pieces of crispy stuff to share..... 
3 bowls of Red beans sweet desserts... 
A bowl of peanuts porridge.... 
Freshly fried sesame balls.... RM1.20 for each...
All in all, our bill came to RM21.60... 
For this amount, each person is RM7... 
No more so-called economical food, right!  :)

  1. Economy fast food would refer to the chap fan/mixed rice not "a la carte". Here, usually it is 1 meat 2 vegetables, RM3.50. Quite ok, still quite economical.

  2. For all those food, RM7 is still economical imho because you have to compare the price relative to the price of other food now. Cannot compare to the price of food ten years ago. I like the simple bee hoon and red bean soup.

    2. that means there is no food you can absolutely call keng chai anymore la since if relative then this food is still at the cheapest and lowest rung. even food you cook at home are also expensive if you use quality ingredients.

  4. Interesting meal. I like it. Sigh! Now economy rice cost RM5 for 2 vegetables and 1 meat in some place. Hard to get lower than RM5 unless 2 or 3 veggie dishes.

    1. Now I think eating a plate of chap farn is cheaper than having a bowl of noodles...

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
