Ipoh Hainan Chicken Rice

IPOH... Back to where I belong after being away for few months.... 

Spent a few days trying to settle my "mind" back to the current time, have been waking up at odd hours during the night to watch TV and then dozing off again during the early dawn... During the day, I felt like a zombie and did not have much appetite.  My sister followed me back this time and we had each other to keep company with during these "jetlag" moments.  

Anyway, we become "normal" again and spent the first few days in Ipoh hunting food and cravings.  There is this place which I have not been before, near the Desserts street... oh dear, I forgot to see the actual name of the restaurant.  My bad.. I tried googling for it but to no avail.  Will try to pass by the shop again to get the name one of these days..... 
We had half a chicken for the three of us.... 
Glass chicken feet... direct translation from Cantonese.... 
Long time I did not eat these... 
Sweet, sourish and spicy due to the chillies...



And fried eggplants which was done perfectly... 
Tasted like banana fritters.. LOL... 
Nice lunch which cost around RM70 for the 3 of us... 
And the jet-lag faces then.... 
*Now I am back to normal*

  3. Maybe you can go google maps and walk around to see the shops, you may see the name. I dropped by your house once but nobody was home. LOL!!!

    I guess you had people taking care of your house while you were away, doing the cleaning and maintaining and everything. Otherwise, it would be such a chore coming back after being away for so so so long...and so many things waiting to be done.

  6. I believe it's Restoran Hainam in Jalan Mustapha al Bakri. Unmistakable red table cloth. A bit pricey but air conditioned. Recently renovated. Been there a few time.

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
