Christmas Dinner At Grove Diner, Ipoh

CHRISTMAS EVE DINE OUT....

We were not obedient on the eve of Christmas, we did not stay home, instead we made a reservation to have our dinner at Grove Diner.  We had never been there before and I know that to go on a festive season eve will certainly burn a hole in my pocket/wallet/purse.  There is no doubt about that, I called up for reservation a week earlier, the staff sent the menu to me, via whatsapp.  So convenient these days!

For the eve of Christmas, Grove Diner only had 4 choices for us patrons.  Most expensive is the Wagyu beef and its condiments, RM268, followed by the second highest is RM168 and another two choices is the RM69 plus plus.  How about that.... I estimated for the six of us, the bill could easily comes to RM600... LOL...

The set dinner came with a truffle mushroom soup, followed by main course and ended with a dessert.  No drinks were included and five of us had warm water... LOL... so stingy, right?  LOL.... 
A bungalow house turned cafe along Jalan Tambun, Ipoh.... 
Me ... wearing like red riding hood....
Actual Story line:  I was wearing a red cut in dress, thinking I would look "glam"....
Once seated, I was freezing... the air con was just too strong for me...
Thank goodness there is a red scarf in my car...
And instead of cut-in, I was wrapped like a "Bah Chang!"
The truffle mushroom soup....
Followed by my choice of dinner....plus 3 others... 
Boneless chicken wrapped up with some sauce.... 
Yes, I could finish the whole lot.... 
Another RM69 option is this soft crab and king prawn with Aglio Olio Fettuccine....
This is the RM168 main course with different type of meat.... 
Out of 6 of us, two ordered this main course...
For desserts, we were served Pavlova.. whatever it is.... 
We also brought a cake along.... 
To mark this year Christmas 2020!

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

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....

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...
