A Disappointment At Kuala Sepetang

OUT OF IPOH but into Taiping.  We stopped at Kuala Sepetang for lunch.  My kids had not been there before though I have been many times.  It was a weekend and to our surprise, the small fishing village was booming with people, tourists like us, I guess.  Wrong timing but no choice, they have to work from home during weekdays, only time off is weekend. 

Food was definitely not tasty at all during such peak hours.  We managed to get a place and ordered a few dishes.  But it was quite disappointing, the taste was not there and we even got shortchanged for the number of crabs.  We ordered 3 but when the dish was served, I counted and recounted, there were only 2 crabs cooked for us.  I sounded it to three servers and only the third one had a feedback for us.  He checked the bill, it was written three and was charged RM59.... and he told us to mention it at the cashier when we finished our food.
While waiting for the food, we looked at the murky waters...
And fishing boats....
The bustling crowd... got SOP in front... just scan and go... 
The mini size crabs... how not to go unnoticed...
Easily can see that there are not 3 here... 
The pomfret is fresh though... Rm36 for this...
Small shrimps deep fried but no tasty at all...
And some greens... nothing to shout about... 
Four dishes plus rice came to RM112...
The missing one crab were deducted RM20....
I guess we won't be going there again for a long long time...

  1. I guess everyone wants to go out after stay-at-home for about 4 months. I think better to avoid crowded places. Luckily you realized they served u two instead of 3 crabs and got rm20 deducted from the whole bill.

  4. ok la, at least they deducted RM20 for u on the missing crab. But it has spoil the reputation for being dishonest when serving dishes. Should not go there for the second time.

  5. Good thing you noticed and counted the crab and complained to the servers. Don't know whether it was intentional or unintentional. To avoid the crowd, it is better to go on weekdays but sometimes it is unavoidable.

  6. Actually, the food does not even look tasty. But good scenery while you ate.

  7. We have to audit our orders especially when the restaurant is busy, mistakes can happen. It is good they acknowledge the shortfall and compensated you. Hopefully you and your kids can visit at a better time.

  9. Good that you are observant to find out that there are only 2 crabs instead of 3 and they compensated you. That is the reason why my mom always insist hving homecooked food during cny for the same reason that quality will drop when it is crowded.

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...
