Flying From Dubai for IPOH food

MY COUSIN TKL who is presently working in Dubai flew back to IPOH to visit his papa and us, of course. Once back to IPOH sweet IPOH, there will be no turning back when it comes to food. For most locals who have migrated overseas, it is no surprise that they will eat all they can when they come back to Malaysia. Gaining or putting on weight will not hinder them from stuffing as much as they can :))

Same for TKL here, he wanted something hot and spicy... no problem, I took him to a coffeeshop called Kopi Thiam where they sell various type of spicy hot stuff namely....

spicy hokkien mee
(I forgot to snap the prawn paste that was supplied separately)

hot and spicy fried koay teow

fish balls curry

TKL said.. "hmm.. hmmm" too hot for words...

after the meal, we adjourned to buy durians from this apek...

apek said "guarantee can eat one"

my cousin helping apek to open .... using all his might...

... and .."open sesame" ... the durian gave such an aroma smell
and of course the wonderful bittersweet taste....

TKL, I hope you have a wonderful time eating whatever you craved for during the few days you were here. Till we meet again...
