Dinner At Mokuren And Desserts At Kinta City, Ipoh

BACK IN IPOH... Really nice to be home after a couple of weeks away.... This time I must be a good girl and stay put here till something bugs me again!  LOL...

Back to homecooking too on most evenings... but on this particular evening, we felt like eating something different and special for a change.  It has been raining on most evening and on this particular rainy day, I was craving for some Japanese food and Mokuren came to my mind... Quickly I made the reservation through the phone for two and we reached there before 6pm.  Yes, have to make reservations otherwise might feel dejected if it is full.  Saw a few customers who walked in after us were told that the tables were reserved... hmmm.. Food must be pretty good here...
Hot green tea on a rainy evening.... 
Then I sat back and let my girl do all the ordering... 
Since we were the first customers, our food came out real fast.... 
Our Big Bowl of Seafood salad... 
Anyone squeamish looking at this dish?
Don't be... it is a well blend combination with all the sauce and vegetables... 
Very nice one.. 
Me also first time taking this.... and it cost around RM25
Cucumber rolls with Salmon and something good in there... RM20 or so..
I could finish this plate all by myself! 
My girl also ordered some soft crab sushi rolls... 
Not bad too... price is around RM20 plus.. cannot remember already..
Thought of ordering another bowl of fried rice.... quite hesitant... 
In the end, we did not... cos I have something else in mind!
We went for our desserts at Baskin Robbins... 
Glad we did cos they have promotion... 
Buy one at regular price 
and the second one is RM3.10 only... 
Independence Day Promotion so it seems...
And finally the evening meal is fully completed!

  9. The cucumber and salmon rolls look the best to me, a very lovely place to eat. We have quite a few Baskin Robbins in the area.

  10. Presentation looks kinda messy - usually at these Japanese places, their presentation is top class, so artistic and creative. I love Baskin' Robbins!

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...
