Dinner At Bee Gaik Nyonya Restaurant, Ipoh

SHE LOVES THE JU HU CHAR...

But I do not know how to cook it right!  I tried doing it once and the taste is so far behind from what my mom used to do.  Regretted not learning the proper way to do it from my mom then... I suspect the art of stirring and sauteed is the reason for not getting it right... oh yes, perhaps the wok plays a part too.  I should be using the big stainless steel wok instead of those ceramic ones.   Anyway, I am not going to give up practising and I hope one day, I will get the 90% taste if not 100% of what my late mom used to do.  *Mom, we are missing your your cooking!!*
And so... no choice... 
My girl suggested going to Bee Gaik for the Ju Hu Char fix.... 
Difficult to get this dish in Ipoh... 
As far as I know, Bee Gaik has it... 
Where else, may I know?
This dish can be done at home... so far, so good... 
We ordered Assam Fish Curry too... 
And this is new to us... 
Salted Fish Acar...
A very appetizing dish with sweetened onions  and olives... 
Dinner at Bee Gaik Nyonya Restaurant for the four of us... 
The bill came to around RM90...
And thanks to my girl who picked up the tab... 
Alright, CNY is coming soon... 
I have to whisk up my kids' favourite dish for that special day...
I must really try practising this dish again and again... 
It is a MUST dish for Chinese New Year!

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

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
