Lunch At Old Town, Cendol In Bercham

FOOD TRAIL WITH MY FRIENDS...

I anticipated anxiously when my friends come calling and paying a visit to Ipoh... Where to go, what to eat is secondary, we always play by ear at the moment of time when we see each other.  Better not to plan than planning, we know our likes and dislikes by now. 

Ipoh no doubt has a lot to offer when it comes to food, however, taste buds always change every now and then.  Food aside, we enjoy each other's company, catching up with one another and talking anything under the sun is more fun...

Even queuing under the sun for a bowl of Cendol receives no complaints from us....
Alright, we were not exactly under the sun but under the shade.... 
Someone was lining up for us instead... LOL... 
Worth waiting 20 minutes or so.... 
And our quenching time starts.... 
Had our lunch at Koh Kee in Old Town, Ipoh.... 
Steamed fish belly... .
Old style of steaming.... with lots of ginger and garlic...
Sambal Watercress...
Steamed three types of eggs...
Dishes for the four of us.... 
Bill came to around RM50 plus... not sure exactly how much... 
Walked around a bit in old town which is now a famous ground for tourists...
Yes, we were more or less tourists on this day!

  7. I must go and google maps where exactly is Bercham. The old walls and tree roots looked familiar to me.

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....

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

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...
