Fresh Crispy Fish Porridge At Kar Heng, Ipoh

PORRIDGE DAY.... my foodie friend put up this shop selling porridge in his FB account a couple of times last year and I only went to check out this shop after the Movement Control Order was lifted.  Ever since June, I have been to this shop three times.  I am from the clan "Teochew" ... popularly known for eating porridge daily.  We were "taught" from our toddler years to take porridge and I do not mind taking every now and then.  

Nowadays porridge are more expensive than the "mixed rice" unlike those days, porridge was normally for the poorer and lower income people.  Coming back to my post, this corner shop is called Kar Heng, located along Jalan Chamberlain.  A couple manned this stall and they are very friendly.... 

Each of us ordered a bowl each... 3 types of eggs combination... RM4.50
Fried Fish RM7
This steamed type too was RM7...
Andy wanted a plate of chee cheong fun to share among 3 of us.... RM4.20
Our lunch... full to the brim.... 
We have to packet home a plate of fish for another day...
Greedy Threesome!

  2. The Teochews love their porridge! Up till now, I still prefer rice. I would enjoy the fish - fried or steamed. And the CCF too!

  4. We do not really have this kind of porridge here. The closest thing would be oatmeal.

  5. Fried or steam, I like both fishes. Used to enjoy fish porridge as a kids but been ages since I had one. Almost every night my dad would tapau fish porridge from Lau Ya Keng, an old food centre in Carpenter Street for supper back then.

  7. I am not a Teochew but I love porridge too probably because I grow up eating lots of porridge. This place serves good porridge. I don't mind going there every now and then for their porridge. Next time, should also order the ccf to try.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
