An Overpriced Meal At Kopisan, Lawan Kuda

OVERCHARGED.... ?

We have been to this shop several times last year and most times, we went there for coffee and toasted bread.  My friends even had make friends with the owner, I mean just talking talking la... not specifically those "friends" whom we go out with... 

Back to our lunch at this Kedai Gemuk in Kopisan, Gopeng, the reason we went there was to buy their Pandan White Coffee, instant 3in1 packets.  My son told me that the coffee that they manufactured is very nice.  And naturally, when son says nice, the mama will surely go and buy some more, right... even though the drive takes around 30 minutes to reach!

OK, back to our lunch again.... LOL.... for the first time I ordered mihun and a few others.... and when I saw the itemized bill, I was a bit ... ok, only a bit astonished.  Oh by the way, it is not a cafe, it is just a kedai kopi, a small coffeeshop in a very small village, though small, the prices can be quite high.  LOL... 

I ordered a plate of economy mihun... 
Small portion, I don't mind... 
Nothing in the mihun... I don't mind...
But I minded when I saw the bill....
It cost RM4.... !!  Really??
Then the Boss said RM2.50 for mihun and RM1.50 for the sambal...
Seriously?
Toasted Bread.... kaya and butter.... RM4.80...
Another What from me... LOL...
I asked him why so expensive...
He said .. good butter...
OH...
A small bowl of porridge...
This one, I could not remember how much.... 
No peanuts, no meat... not visible... LOL...
But since I cannot remember the price... I cannot comment...
Their sticky rice with kaya is nice.... 
Again, I did not see the price...
By then, I was just telling myself... next time, just don't order mihun or bread... 
LOL... 
My barley water with lemon... RM3.50...
Normal barley in Ipoh city is RM2... 
Add two pieces of lemon.. oh well... no comment....
Besides the above food, there are another two cups of coffee...
All in, the bill came to around RM22.... 
Lastly not least, this cost RM20 each...
NO comment....
I blame it on the Covid-19...
People just have to make ends meet after the long lockdown!
LOL...

  1. I've been to places like this. Of course I will never go again, never mind how nice the food is. Business is business - you do not take advantage of your unsuspecting customers like that. This kind of places deserve to go bankrupt and close down!

  3. I just cursed my stupidity yesterday for treating an old friend to eat Prwan Mee at The Champs. One bowl RM28.00!!! 2 bowls RM56.00! Cry me.

    Now I read yours, I wanna laugh too.

  4. Well, the food does look good. But maybe not worth all this money. Wish I knew how much it cost in English, maybe I will google it! i am guessing you will not go back! I wonder if their business will drop off because of this?

  8. Where did my comment go? I did comment yesterday about the prices being like prices in nice restaurants in kl. Maybe it is to cater for tourists and not locals.

  9. Sambal also charge? Goodness, I thought it should be complimentary.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
