Our Foodie Outing To Gopeng And Batu Gajah

BACK WITH MY FOODIE FRIENDS after disappearing from Ipoh for so many days!  LOL... Wasting no time, we went out for a few meals to catch up with one another... started in the morning to Gopeng town for their signature noodles called "Lai Fun" with varieties of fish paste, fried or steamed.  No pictures were taken, I wonder why now, perhaps too hungry then or busy chatting with one another.  After our breakfast, we went to search for the durian fella... he has shifted from the Big Tree (where he put his durians for sale last time) to another street in town.  He told us that the Tree was "cruelly decapitated" (I must have been watching too many gory movies to use that word) for no reason.... Back to my post, from the durian feast, we adjourned to Batu Gajah, wanting to see the new premium outlet but it was not ready as yet.  From there, we passed by Batu Gajah town and went down to take some murals, I guess my friend Nancy will show more of the murals in her post some

Lunch At Swee Garden, Nibong Tebal

AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS REST, we went back to Ipoh.  On the way back, we stopped for lunch at Nibong Tebal.  Using Waze and a couple of wrong turns, we managed to get to Swee Garden restaurant.  By then it was lunch time and the place was full with patrons. We sat down with one lady and a young man, they were almost going to finish their meal.  In the midst of waiting, I struck up a conversation with the lady, starting with where they were from.... and to my amazement, the lady was so friendly or should I say, chatty.... she told us a lot about herself and the son who was sitting beside her.  The son was quiet but the mother was so dynamite speaking... LOL... I really never met such a lady before and it was like talking to old friends after just like fifteen minutes or so.  During that short time, I have know a lot about her.... not vice versa... anyway, all I can say is that she is the type of lady who makes you feel at home....  We opted for wanton noodles instead of rice....

Smaller Portions Meals For Me

BACK TO MALAYSIAN FOOD.... after the short vacation in the Lion City... First, we landed in Penang and I had a bout of stomach discomfort as soon as we landed.  The pain in my stomach became more intense as we reached and I had no choice but to visit one 24 hours GP after dinner.  After medication, I was feeling much better the next day.  I guess it must be due to too much rounds of food, either that... or perhaps I did not have my regular meals during the time in Singapore.   The next day I took an early meal, warm oats, bread and went for porridge at Canton-I in Queensbay Mall.  I must be more careful with my intake, my stomach was still tender... other than that, I was fine.  Hot porridge in Canton I... Fish porridge actually.... Ordered some greens and a double boiled soup to go with the porridge....  All grins again... I must eat moderately this time round.... That means small portions and more frequent meals.... 

Shiki Hototogisu Ramen Before Flying Home

Soup ramen with fried chicken...  Tastes so good! Silky beancurd to go with the noodles... And Ready To Fly.... Bye Dears... See you again some day soon!

The Temptress Chick At Soup Restaurant, Singapore

Lady M, At Your Service

 I AM WHERE YOU ARE... when it comes to desserts... And the place was called Lady M, sounds like a royalty name for a dessert place which serves all kinds of crepes.  We ordered two pieces to try and we sat there for quite some time to relax and chill....  And I was lost for choices.... Which would you end up ordering? Ended up with these two...  The many fine layers of crepe.... And more walking after that.... And to take pictures as we walked along...

Korean Dinner At SBCD Singapore

LAST MEAL FOR THE DAY... finally... before we took a Grab ride back to our Ji Hotel.   This is what holiday is about, going around as tourists and eating anytime, anywhere...  We ended the day with Korean food at SBCD Tofu House.  Supposed to be famous for their beancurd but I don't remember ordering any for our dinner that night. In fact I was quite full from the day's food galore that I just took a bit of everything served on the table.   Taken at where we were seated.. A bit of this and that were served... We ordered two combo sets....  Each of us were served a fish...  Korean seafood pancake which I like very much... The pork belly too was sweet and savoury...  And our set dinner for the evening came to around $120...
