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....

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
