We Had Sibu Noodles

The last two packets of Sibu noodles.... how I got them? I am sure many of you know.... the Sibu man who came as I mentioned in this post... he gave me a few packets of noodles which are not sold here in Ipoh nor in Penang......

This time I cook them just by putting garlic, oil, dark and light sauce... my girl likes it this way too...

one packet each....

bought some purple vegetables.. (san choy)
and made some soup with one beaten egg...

a simple meal for both of us..
noodles, fishcake and vegetable soup...
Thanks for the noodles, STP!


  1. Sibu noodles? Hmm, interesting. Don't think can find it here at Perak, right?

  2. Mmmm... I haven't heard of sibu noodles before. Is your girl staying with you, just your boys outstation?

    Nothing beats a simple but delish home cooked meal, Claire. Have a good weekend!

  3. i WANTTTT sibu noodles. where to buy in KL?

  4. Sabah's and Sarawak's noodles are different from our as they possess a strong eggy and alkaline taste.These noodles are even more popular than rice that they have become the daily staple of the locals. Sarawak Kolok Mee, Sibu Kampua Noodles, Sabah Tuaran Mee, Tamaparuli Mee etc. Have you tried all of them?

  5. hayley, different brand, yeah.. cannot find ..

    irene: have a good weekend too!

    rachel: have to tell that to STP... hahahaha...

    pam: i tried kolok mee before but not kampua yet.. wait till i go subu one of these days ...

  6. Mee Daddy? I thought you're supposed to cook soup noodles? I did not buy you the mee goreng, did I? They're available in maybe they're sold at some places in the peninsula too.

    That bit about the strong eggy and alkaline taste is definitely not true. Our Sibu yellow noodles are pale and not as attractive looking as those over your side due to the low content of "kee" (whatever that is) they are softer or not as "khiew"...and gets soggy very quickly and easily - so must be skillful enough to cook them so as to dish out something just right and really nice.

    No comments about those in Sabah or in Kuching but for one thing, my relatives in Kuching would get me to buy so many kgs from Sibu for festivals like Chinese New Year because, according to them, the Kuching noodles have too much "kee" and are not the mee in Semenanjung.

  7. P.S.
    Kampua mee is a different type of mee altogether and is even paler than what's supposed to be "yellow noodles" here...and no eggy or alkaline taste - maybe there's a little egg used in the making but definitely no "kee".

    I really wonder who's that making that comment and on what authority she makes them. Absolutely misleading!!!

  8. stp, cool down man... cool... Pam is a teacher cum an avid traveler...
    Oh, you didnt give me the mee daddy la.. it has a chinese name.. now suddenly i cannot recall the name.. start with L alphabet I think.. and it is laksa curry.. cos my girl didnt want curry, I cook it dry for her.. it is the noodles that we want to eat.. hehehe... i like them cos they are more refined than the ones over here.. next time I wanna try the Mee Daddy...

  9. Ah yes! I gave you the Lee Fah laksa noodles - made in Kuching. I gave Eugene the Mee Daddy - made in Sibu. Come, come to Sibu...and I'll give you the made-in-Sibu ones. Eugene loves it - always wants more. LOL!!!

  10. do you have pictures of the noodle packet or not?

  11. stp: aiyah..kuching noodles ah.. then that means I wrote wrongly liow.. should i amend? but the title will be still be shown Sibu.. hahaha.. never mind.. if anyone asks, I will say.. oh, Kuching noodles.. sorry.. i took for granted they were from Sibu!

    lena: none la.. but it is Lee Fah as stp mentioned and they were from Kuching wor..

  12. I didn't know that Sibu noodles are sold in packets too. Do they sell in KL?

  13. lucky you! if stp give me those noodles oso i dunno how to cook them! hehe.. :D

  14. never heard of sibu noodles. We always eat Maggi mee only :DD

  15. STP is such a nice guy isn't he. :) Glad you made a really nice dish out of the noodles. I think it turned out rather yummy :)

  16. This looks really good, much better than the last meal you bought! I think you are a very good cook. So well rounded, too, a little of everything!

  17. Isaac, of course I'm nice! Hehehehe!!! AndMerryn, can importthe cook sekali... LOL!!!

    Kuching, Sibu same lah...all in Sarawak. You liked the Sarawak laksa Elin cooked? That is Kuching's specialty so it is called Sarawak laksa or Kuching laksa - no, Sibu laksa. LOL!!!

  18. That all looks soooo delicious!!! Yum!

  19. wenn: yeah simple meal..

    twilight: according to stp, they are from kuching..

    merryn: u pretend only! u r much better cook than i m!

    agnes: i buy cintan more..

    isaac: simple only nia.. hahaha..

    ginny: i m no good cook, just simple meals will do..

    stp: yes, she cooked it already.. i will post up later.. hehehe..

    rashelle: thanks!

  20. no lah claire. gimme instant noodles i cook better! :D

  21. Oh, first I tght is Kampua time get Kampua Mee (dry one) and toast it with garlic oil and maggi taste nice too and I just have it for lunch this afternoon.

  22. merryn: this is also instant noodles.. sometimes i like them dry and at times with their msg flavour!

    mery: do they have kampua mee over here? what brand?

  23. Mery's from Sibu too... Hehehehe!

  24. Yum! I want those noodles!! : )

  25. Oh, at first i thought STP give you dry kampua, till i read the comment above.

    Next time can ask STP to bring you some dried kampua from Sibu, then you can cook at home too, but best still go to Sibu and try.

    Psssttt..STP see, i help you to promote Sibu, getting people to go there and visit you. hahahah

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…
