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!

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
