The Golden Age (Wong Kam)

Okay, now the main post of the day....

Tonight is the night... a special dinner to celebrate Elin's beloved husband who has just turned "30" yesterday (Elin was 25, she used to say....) Sorry, it was a belated dinner because I didn't know about it until today... lol...

Coincidentally I have been thinking of eating out today because my girl "jilted" me for her own appointment. Eating alone is no fun, right? So when Elin mentioned that yesterday was her beloved husband's B-day, it struck my mind... hey, what other joy than to go out and celebrate my buddy's husband's birthday??? YES!

Ended up in Weng Kee Restaurant and these were what we took...

In Ipoh Garden South...

buttered crispy fish...


kapitan curry chicken...
Elin said her hubby's favourite

steamed yam... my favourite.. hahahaa..

Three's Company???
Our kids are not around, what to do...
Thus the "Golden Boy and "Golden Ladies"

  14. Hi Reanaclaire, you have a heart of gold! No 2 ways.
    Really nice of you to belanjah your friends.
    The couple looks well and healthy.

    You know, its blogs like yours that fascinates me, as I stayed in Ipoh once upon a time, Canning Gardens....
    and apart from Penang foods, love Ipoh's many culinary delights.

    I'm not like you live to eat, more eat to live, ha ha....but apart from my wife's cooking of Malaysian dishes, have lost touch with what foods have been upgraded or improved since our last balek kampong in 2006.

    Where's the best curry mee, har mee, and banana leaf in town? Oh ya, oh chien and poh pia too?
    When we do balek kampong, I will certainly engage your kind services on where to buka puasa after being away long time....boleh ka?

    You have fun....and stay young, Lee.

  15. The dishes looked delicious, especaily the steamed yam.

  16. I will send you my birth date ok,,,,, then you belanja me makan,, then you tell me yours, then i belanja you makan also,,,,
