Rubbish Chicken Among Others At Hooray Restaurant, Ipoh

ON ONE FINE EVENING, (cos I forgot which day already)  my foodie couple came to pick me up for dinner.  Knowing that I do not drive out during the dark, they came all the way from their house to pick me, it took them half and hour before we reached our place for Food which is at Hala Medan Lapangan 2, (Off Gopeng Road), Ipoh. 

Hooray!! Hooray!!  Hooray from me for bringing me along and the name of the shop is called Hooray!!  What a nice cute name... I was imagining something very western about the place... but no, the food is purely Asian.  A very simple corner shop which serves mixed rice during the day and ala carte dishes during the evenings.   Recommended by an ex-colleague, I was all eager to see what they served....

One young man came to take our order and we could not help ordering what he recommended... "Rubbish Chicken!"  Oh my goodness, what a name!  I am sure this dish will draw some hesitation, we were also taken aback... and curious at the same time. OK, Rubbish Chicken???   No problem, we were Game for it!
And so... the dish came out in a Claypot... 
Inside the pot, the Rubbish Chicken consisted of chicken, *of course*
cooked with tumeric, curry leaves, ginger.... etc. etc.. 
More or less my style of cooking... 
Everything dumped in and turned out pretty good!
If it is called Claypot chicken, the name does not sound astonishing, right?
However Rubbish Chicken will draw some attention!
Next came the young and fresh sweet potato leaves... 
Sizzling hot in a claypot too!
We super like!

Last and not least, this is the most appetizing of all....
Lots of picked onions on top and fried crispy meat beneath... 
Our three dishes for us three... 
Let's get busy now.... 
As for the bill, it came to a reasonable RM46 with rice and drinks.... 
And I'll say.... 
Hip, Hip Hurray!!

34, Hala Medan Lapangan 2, Ipoh. (off Gopeng Road).
Opens from 3 pm - 11 pm.

  1. The name of the chicken dish sounds weird. Out of so many nice name they can choose, why they opt for this name. Say hi to Nancy.

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....

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

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
