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!

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...
