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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
