Pre CNY Dinner With Ex-Classmates At Kok Thai, Ipoh

PRE-CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION WITH MY EX-CLASSMATES...

Two of my ex-classmates from Kuala Lumpur came back to Ipoh for the weekend.  They gave us more than a week's notice to plan for their home coming dinner on the very day they arrived.

It was a Friday and a very cooling one indeed for it rained heavily while we were on the way to Kok Thai Restaurant.  The rain has been good to us, it did not pour when my friend came and fetched me.  But it was pouring dogs and cats just a few minutes after I got into the car.  Traffic was very heavy and it took us more than half an hour to reach the place.  And guess what.... the rain stopped when we reached the restaurant... totally stopped!  And the rain continued again, this time was less heavy... Really Thank God for we did not get wet at all... with our makeup, high heels and all.... LOL... Ladies!!

Before my other friends arrived, we made our order first and by the time they arrived, the food were ready to be served.  Good timing!  As usual, ladies have lots to catch up with one another.... our mouths were super busy, we can really multi-task when it comes to gathering like this...
Since there are only 7 of us, we ordered a S size to start off with...
Loe Sang as the Appetizer...
Followed by the Hoi Mei Poe aka Seafood variety in Claypot...
Vegetarian Assam Curry...
Pork ribs with ginger and mushrooms in Claypot...
Kai Lan with Yam... 
And among the dishes, this is still the Best of them all.... 
Just four dishes for the 7 of us...
We are small eaters ma... ahemmmm..
See... don't we look like small eaters?
To my lovely ladies, 
Gong Xi, Gong Xi... 
Wishing one another Good Health and Happiness...

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....

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...
