Original Ah Leng Char Koay Teow In Ayer Itam, Penang

WHEN EVENING COMES....  It was around 5pm when we made a stop at Ayer Itam for the original Ah Leng Char Koay Teow.  In Mandarin it was pronounced as Ah Loong meaning dragon but when translated, it becomes Ah Leng which has the same spelling with my name.  LOL.... That is why I thought all along, this famous koay teow is manned by a lady.  But no, it is actually from a man who is now over 80 years old, he opens his stall at the side of his house in Ayer Itam whereas his son has a stall along Jalan Kramat.  

Since the father's stall opens in the evening, it is just nice for us to drop by and stuffed ourselves before going for our walk at the dam which is nearby.  We were the first customers and we could choose our seating.... both inside and outside the house is equally hot, we compared the hot air and finally opted for the outside air instead of being under the aluminium roofing.  
At the side of the house facing the road.... 
Food knows no bounds.. hot weather did not deter us from eating... 
(no, that is not my son... just in case anyone is wondering)  hahahaa..
He doesn't look 80, right?  Still going strong....
My son had the special....
Came with 4 big prawns and mantis... RM14
I had the regular.... 2 big prawns, mini cockles, no presentation for RM9
Get what I mean when I said no presentation? 
I did not edit anything... it was served like this, noodles to one side... 
LOL... 
And our table number to remember....

  4. The CKT uncle looks young for his age. It must be the CKT business that keeps him occupied and youthful!

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
