As Good As It Looks ...

At this time of posting this, I am actually very very hungry and I seem to aggravate myself more to the brink of doing a "ching chai" post so that I can go off for my dinner now. Am I making sense here? Yes, no? Not sure?? Never mind..... :)

Ok, this place is called Dai You, it is a corner shop, off Bendahara Road in IPOH. Over here, there is a selection of stalls, most of them are selling "nice" and "okay" food, ie. according to my taste buds... One I love most is the apom balik by an old couple but unfortunately that day, they were "absent" from their stall.

Ended up eating from this lady who was smiling at us in a more or less "lau hak" gesture when we were passing by... we were indeed smittened by her pleasant invitation and glad to say, we didn't regret it! Her food was indeed tasty ... so ngam for me....

oh, pls excuse this shot
I didn't do it purposely... really I didn't...

her special mee jawa

as good as it looks...

i equally love this too..
just to my expectation..

accompanied by this piece of drumstick
in herbal soup
price - RM3.50 only..
extremely cheap!!

(maybe she knows I am going to blog about her??)
one thing for sure, I want to go back again...


  1. Hah!!! CHOP! FC!!!

    *on a softer note*, dont cry for IPOH (me), STP, (argentina)... the truth is, I never met u.. bla..bla...bla... forgot the lyrics already... hahhahaa...
