One Day Foodie Trail To Kuala Sepetang

STARTED OFF EARLY IN THE MORNING...  the six of us had our first meal at the Canning Garden Dim Sum.  We ordered some varieties just enough to last us for a couple of hours.   Our main itinerary of the day trip was a visit to Kuala Sepetang for a seafood meal so we did not want to "jam up" our tummies with the morning breakfast in Ipoh.   However... this did not happen as planned...

On the way using the old trunk road to Taiping, we passed by many durian stalls in this so-called place Bukit Gantang, famous for their durian orchards. Oh my goodness, I thought I was the only one tempted, but no.. all SIX of us are confirmed durian lovers!  Needless to say, we got to stop, somehow.... We must have our Fix on these, the intended-saving-space in our tummies were naturally forgotten!  LOL...
We wanted no famous names of the durians... no Musang, no Red Prawn, or Black Thorns...
All we wanted is those natural ones from original tall durian trees...
The Kampung Durians or Village Durians so it is translated... 
This Makcik is very friendly and pleasant...
She makes sure we eat with satisfaction.... 
Original ones are made of these... 
Those with worms at the side are a common sight... 
And that means chemical-free... I suppose!
Helping ourselves with the durians, one after another... 
Spent quite some time here satisfying ourselves with durians and mangosteens... 
Before we continue our drive to Kuala Sepetang, Taiping....

  4. Yes, this original authentic ones are still the best. All the whatever kings, the hybrids, taste fake, nothing like the real thing. I hear a lot of durians this year, so very cheap...even those over-rated expensive ones.

  5. Hi, I just saw your comment on Ginny’s blog and decided to take a look. Very happy to visit. Such a fun and interesting post. I have seen durian in our local Asian store and always wondered about them.

  6. I just read somewhere that women should eat more durian. Good for women's body, you believe?

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...
