Confinement Dishes At O'Cafe, Canning Garden, Ipoh

ONE OF MY EX-TREASURY COLLEAGUE WAS BAPTIZED RECENTLY.... When she told me that she was going to be baptized last Saturday, I was very surprised and of course, very Happy!

We know each other since 1990... we worked together in the same department and have been friends since.  Then  14 years later, both of us were transferred to two different government departments, I went to JKR and she in Land office.  But that did not deter us from keeping in touch every now and then... and as I said just recently, she was Baptized and now she is my sister-in-Christ!

This definitely calls for a Thanksgiving dinner... LOL... We did not decide on the place till she arrived... We were still thinking of where to go and when I mentioned confinement food at Canning Garden, she jumped to the suggestion with joy.  She simply loves those type of Chinese confinement dishes even we were past our giving birth period!  LOL....

We called up another ex-Treasury colleague of ours and three of us had a good time catching up and chatting till the shop owner came to "inform" us that it was time to close for the day... that was 8.30pm... And we continued our conversation back in my place till a couple of hours later... LOL.. Ladies, ladies... non-stop chatting!

As for the dishes... we ordered 4 for just the 3 of us....
Free range chicken in sweet chinese wine... RM12.90
Trotters in Black vinegar.. RM12.90
Yes, another confinement dish we love though it is a bit sweet here... 
Sambal Petai aka stinky beans which is to detox our kidneys.. ?
But that night the sauce was a bit over-sour... 
And steamed beancurd with minced meat.... 
Brown rice is served instead of white... 
Yes, our four dishes for the three big eaters such as US.. 
That was why we ate till they wanted to "close shop" for the night... 
The bill came to around RM70... 
I think enough confinement dishes to last for a couple of months....

  8. They are all delicious dishes and I didn't know that Tofu & Petai are also confinement food. I only thought Trotters in Black vinegar with lotsa gingers are good for new mummies.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
