CNY Lunch And Sweet Temptations In Ipoh

NOT A GOOD IDEA to eat out during the festive season but we did it anyway.... LOL...

Reanaclaire's kitchen has been closed till further notice after the third day of Chinese New Year even though her kids were still around for the whole week.  We ate out almost each day, either in our relatives' houses or eatery outlets in Ipoh.  Two meals are sufficient, heavy breakfast in the morning, home snacks during the whole day and another light meal during dinner.   Many times we asked each other why we did not feel hungry even when dinner time approached.... Yes, we know the answer and yet we still wanna ask why!  Obviously our tummies worked non-stop due to the variety ofcookies, prawn crackers, BBQ pork jerky, carbonated drinks.... etc etc... all these "unhealthy" and yet so yummy delicacies during this festive season.  OK, just once a year affair so I guess it is totally fine to indulge into them....

Back to my post today....

Before they left Ipoh, I took them to Wong Koh Kee restaurant in old town, this shop has been around since the 1970s.... and still standing firm, I am glad to say.  However one word of advice, do not go during festive season, the food is somehow... er... slightly off from the normal days, I would say... Well, that is a common statement anyway....
So... we ordered these dishes.....
Wrong choice... clams aka Lala in Cantonese....
Why did I order this dish during CNY??
Lesson learned...
Another wrong choice... Steamed fish....
Ordering fish means higher bill on CNY...
LOL...
Only not wrong is the greens....
This is their signature dish... 
Watercress with roasted pork...
Whole bill with 3 dishes one soup came to RM82
Maybe it won't be so high if we go on a normal day....
Saved by the day are these cupcakes from Nancy Chong Bakery....
Costing RM3.50 each, we must order at least 10...
Mini sized ones... 
However we decide to stick to 1kg of butter cake the next round which cost around RM60 maybe?
Or perhaps "Reanaclaire's bakery" can help to do the pound cake....
Must look for a really nice recipe... 
Any recommendations, anyone?

    Lovely cupcakes.

  6. the price seems OK by KL standard. Over here the bill surely hit 3-figures. Anyway, that's a 'farewell' meal, so eat lavishly is OK.

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...
