The Difference In Pricing Between Two Shops

THE DIFFERENCE.... Two different shops, more or less the same food and a big difference in pricing.  The first shop we went a couple of weeks ago was in town, famous for their fried fish to be eaten with porridge.  We ordered 3 dishes for 4 of us and the price was alarmingly high considering the dishes had nothing to shout about.  

Then few days ago we went to another shop in Falim, called Wong Zheng, we ordered 3 dishes too, almost the same as the one mentioned above.  The food here is much nicer and the price is reasonable too.  Summary:  we compared the food and the price and came to a conclusion that we would not be going back to the first shop but will continue to frequent the second.  LOL.... I guess Ipohians are like that... where food is nice and reasonable, the shop will flourish and on the other hand, if the food is so-so but expensive, we might not go there anymore.  

First shop.... 


Fried fish with bitter gourd.... 
Braised yam... 
The presentation here might be nicer than the second shop 
but taste wise, it is still lacking.... 
Fried minced pork....
And the bill came to RM90 for these 3 dishes.... 

Now the second shop dishes are as follows:
Fried fish with assam sauce.... 
Braised Yam and this is much more tastier.... 
Salted Egg with baby french beans and lotus.... 
For these three dishes, the bill came to Rm67...
That's the difference between the first and the second....
LOL.. just my opinion....
Today is Friday, have a nice weekend!!

  1. Yes, some places, their knives are very very sharp and the food is not necessarily nicer. If very very nice, I do not mind - value for money. If not, I will never ever go back again!!!

  5. Are the fish dishes using different type of fish? Or same type? If different type then cannot compare cos some type of fish is more expensive than other type.

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....

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
