Porridge Day At Hup Kie Restaurant, Ipoh

NEW SHOP IN TOWN...  Just opened for two months only, that was what we were told... another shop for us to go eat porridge is Hup Kie at Jalan Raja Ekram.  My friends and I arranged to meet at noon and the three of us were right on time.  LOL... 

Only one table was occupied when we entered the premises and two more tables were filled while we were eating.  We asked the owner to recommend their special dishes for porridge and we ended up taking 4 dishes for just the three of us.  

He told us we must try their appetizer...
Crispy dried shrimps with onions marinated with vinegar... I think... 
Yes, indeed it was nice... can go with rice and porridge anytime!
Mixed variety of braised stuff.... 
Beancurd, eggs, pork and the innards... 
Get what I meant?  Innards... LOL.. 
A bit of this and that... 
2 pieces of "salty steamed fish"
Can go very well with porridge too!
And a plate of crispy fried pork.... 
A big table for the 3 of us.... 
We ordered 4 bowls of porridge and one bowl of rice... 
And the bill came to around RM61 plus drinks...
The 4 dishes we ordered can accommodate 4-5 people anytime!

  1. I love this type of porridge, plain porridge and we order the dishes to go with it. Only problem we order too much, never know where to stop and it can get very expensive.

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
