Hakka Noodles At MXII and Traditional Homemade Cake, Ipoh

BREAKFAST IS OUR FAVOURITE MEAL OF THE DAY... this is the time when we can eat to our heart's content especially in the early morning or brunch, should I say...  Each morning both of us will ask each other, "What to eat?  Where to go?"  And for this particular morning we wanted Hakka noodles in town.  The place is called MXII at Osborne Street, Ipoh... they serve Hakka noodles during the day and one of the best Wantan Koayteow at night.  Usual wait will be 15 minutes or more depending on the time and the season.

For this morning we waited the usual 15 minutes or so for our Hakka noodles to be served....
The presentation of the Hakka noodles here... 
Fat crunchy bean sprouts from Ipoh looks like that... 
I like the texture of this noodles, softer and springier... compared to others... 
I must have picked 10 of these mixed pork fish balls....
My girl took these.... 
And as usual, I could not remember how much it cost... RM14? RM12?  
Really no idea...
Anyway, after our brunch, we went to look for the traditional 
Homemade Egg Sponge Cake...
Heard there is one shop open in town.... 
Yeah, we found it! 
Ah Mah's taste of happiness, it says... 
It is along Clare street aka Mustapha Al'Bakri now... 
That is the shop... 
One man show.... 
We bought one original flavour to try...
Big like this for RM13... 
As soft as the one in Gurney Plaza, Penang...
Only that it is not as sweet and the egg fragrant is not as strong.... 
Since it is not so sweet, I ended up taking a few pieces in one day!
LOL...

  1. The mixed pork meatballs. I love that. Sometimes I will have that too for my breakfast over the weekend.

    The traditional egg sponge cake. Reminded me of the Taiwan cake my hubby bought last week. Not that nice. I think yours look and taste nicer.

  5. I also tried the sponge cake (Original Cake) at City Square. I bought the golden cheese flavour at RM20, I also found it not as sweet, would prefer it to be sweeter

  7. As they say, eat more at breakfast and less during dinner. But I always do opposite!

  9. Not liked by many, that Taiwanese egg cake - over-rated, very expensive and nothing spectacular. At least, yours did not have air holes in it - I see that a lot in the photos that others shared. Fail big time!

  10. I am drooling at the soft cake now. It goes well with my coffee.

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
