Dim Sum No More..

I think I will not touch dim sum for another few months.
When I go for dimsum, normally I end up not eating them but other varieties like char siew pau, chee cheong fun, porridge, egg tarts, desserts and fish balls. Too much meat makes me queasy.... anyway, I think eating dim sum is very costly, I definitely cannot afford to go there often. Just a four of us will cost around RM50.00 and if there are 10, will surely cost more than a hundred ringgit. For a hundred ringgit, I rather order a set meal of rice and dishes..... yes, I am "kiamsiap" one...



  1. Me too.. But hubby likes dim sum so much. I would rather eat something that is filling to the tummy. Another "kiamsiap" one here. Wuakaka..

  2. Oh, gosh, Dim Sum! I used to know what kind of food that was, but have forgotten. Not good, since my granddaughter is Chinese. If you scroll through some of my posts, you will see her. I have put you on my sidebar blogroll, as well! In answer to your comment, yes, what you can see in this post is out house and yard. I will take a picture of our house and yard in the near future and post it on my blog so you can see!

  3. Thats quite a lot for 4 of u can eat there...I like dim sum as it always so filling..coz all meats

    I got the same way of thinking like u too, they are costly not afford to eat always..

  4. I think eating dimsum once in a month is ok and if it is too oily, I like to order tea to go with the food.

  5. inspiredmum: so we ladies are kiamsiap in a way.. :)

    ginny: over here dim sum is a norm.. esp in my town, it is famous too..

    lemonjude: yes, super lots!! my young nephews and my kids can eat a lot..good gracious! hahaha...

    spicy: normally go with chinese tea but then after drinking, i cannot sleep.. sigh..

  6. ya dim sum are costly...but once in awhile okay la

  7. hmm...i don't quite fancy dimsum either. yes, it is very costly to eat them. i prefer a bowl of noodles :)

  8. Not kiamsiap...just being smart, careful with money! It is certainly NOT cheap! Can get many other nice things with that kind of money. PLUS they always use too much msg!!! Very bad!

    Maybe for special occasion, want to treat special friends, special occasions...ok lah! We can pamper ourselves sometimes...but not ALL the time.

    Economy is not as good as people would want you to believe. Save!!!

  9. WAH!!! You all had so much dim sum! LOL!!

    Normally, if we go for dim sum i will only eat siew mai, chee cheong fun, porridge, char siew pau, lor mai kai, that's all.

  10. For me dim sum is a once in a while food 'coz I don't fancy too much of pork as it usually made of pork... I like loh mai kai but it's quite oily too, haiz...

  11. omg~ you can enter Malaysia Book of Record.

  12. Aiyo... Did you go onto a weighing scale after stuffing yourself with all those 'adorable' morsels?

  13. Is this for real? You guys actually ate all those dim sum...... stacks of them! Gosh, I think I will never take any dim sum after that. Hope you're havinga wonderful weekend, daaahling!
    Cheers, Kristy

  14. Haha :D Then don't go to the restaurant at all. Just sit and home and eat bread.

  15. kathy: yes i do agree.. it is expensive..

    stp: so i m not kiamsiap.. hahaa.. yes, our meagre pay is just enough for us to have 2 meals per day...

    dora: that is why they offer chinese tea to wash off the oil..

    isley: not me.. not me.. hahahaha..

    mingna: all i can take is one Loong...

    kristy: definitely not me.. all those by the younger generation.. haahaha..

    tekkaus: sigh...

  16. Agree! Dim sum is too expensive. Especially in foh san. Hahaha..

  17. yes, wensher.. i dont go foh san one.. very expensive and not so nice too.

  18. yes, dimsum can b v expensive and not v healthy too. high in sodium n fat.. i usually just order lormaikai as that's the only dim sum item I can't go without.. and I so hate it when they dun hv lmk but hor yip fan instead.. :(

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
