Mala Hotpot At Bukit Indah, Johor

WHEN ANDY SUGGESTED GOING TO MALA SHOP FOR OUR DINNER, I thought he was indicating Indian spicy food. But I was mistaken, what he meant was Mala-hot pot, a China Sze Chuan dish.  No, it is not about steamboat, it is actually a dish, a traditional fried dish in fact.  I did not know what to expect, once seated, my girl went to a counter where all the raw ingredients were displayed.  With one tub in her hand, she picked the ingredients from there, whatever she likes, she put inside.  After that, she handed the two tubs to the staff at the counter, informing that the one tub is non-spicy and the other "little bit" of spicy.  LOL...

Yes, we were "pre-warned" that we should not take the "extra mala" aka "malak" otherwise our lips would be burning and our taste buds numb!  LOL...
I let my girl did all the picking cos I did not know what they would do with them....
She came here before so she knows what to expect.... she knows what is nice and what's not.. 
Surprisingly the place was crowded... so that means the food here is Good!
In no time our Mala Dish is ready!
Wahhhh... so it is like that la....
See how my girl's choices... Mostly Greens geh!
Oh, a bit of meat here, I noticed.... 
Anyway, we love Greens more than Meat!
This smaller dish is a bit spicy.... just right for me.. didn't burn my lips... LOL...
Oh yes, this soup must be not Missed Out.... 
Sourish with dices of beancurd and other stuff... I Like!
That was for our dinner.... 
Something different, kan?
I don't mind going again the next time... 
Now I know what to pick and choose... 
Yummy!!
Oh, the bill came to around RM80 plus for the five of us... 

Location: 28, Jln. Indah 15/3

  8. I ate their real spicy hotpot in several restaurants in Sichuan, China. My eyes cried tears as the air around the restaurant stank my eyes.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
