Best Porridge In Ipoh Town


From a very young age, my mother used to boil porridge for us siblings, either they were just plain porridge or with pork/chicken/fish.  So I guess I am brought up eating porridge and loving it until today.

The best shop selling cheap and tasty porridge is in town, my kind of best because I love their generous servings of fried fish.  One set comes with 4 or five pieces either steamed or fried and I always opt for the latter.  They are so crispy and nice, only thing is that I must be very careful with the bones.  So...  having said that, I normally will take a longer time to finish one bowl of porridge, just to be careful and on the safe side.

Kar Heng is the name of the shop, it opens around 11.30am until late evening.  As for me, I will always go early, before noon, there will be less people and waiting time is also shortened.  By noon, most of the workers will swarm the shop.

My kind of set.... Fried Fish with one bowl of porridge...
Before Covid, it was RM8... and now it is RM9...
I am still very happy with this price....
Steaming is also nice... gingery wine gravy....
I ordered a plate of mixed vegetables for RM5....
I wouldn't mind going often to this shop to have this.... 
Nutritious kind of meal, right?
Cheap and Good, this is what I say....


  1. Increased by rm1 only is very good. I can eat congee daily but now I am trying to not eat rice whenever possible.

  2. My girl loved meat porridge with minced meat/meatballs cooked with bone stock, no need for anything else. I was eating porridge a lot when I was unwell...and lost a lot of weight - everything else was too hard and hurt my gum when I chewed.

  3. You and my partner can shake hands. This type of porridge meal will make him very happy!

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
