First Starvation Then Satisfaction

Terrible road jams in IPOH! Ever since lunch time, the IPOH roads leading to town and the highways were like "snail crawling." Ipoh has never been into such jams, very rare scene...

My girl has tuition classes this evening and we were stuck while driving on the way to Ipoh Garden East. The driver of my car had to resort turning here and there to avoid being stuck on the roads and not moving. We "squeezed" in to smaller roads and finally we ended up taking our dinner at this coffeeshop.... not our actual planned destination... change of plans due to the jam...

we parked our car here...

and walked to the corner coffeeshop..

here it is.. Ipoh Garden East coffeeshop...

open-aired coffeeshop...

very cooling tonight... so we ordered these below..

plate of beef curry with vegetables
very cheap... so much of meat... RM4.50 ($1.50usd)

one plate of fried meehoon RM3.50 ($1.20usd)

one plate of lam mee RM3.60 ($1.20)

a plate of wanton mee RM3.50 ($1.20usd)

popiah RM1.70 ($0.60 cents)

My girl and I couldn't be eating all these, right?
Guess who's back?? hahahhaa....

He was really starving when he reached IPOH...
He just wanted to satisfy his hunger....

savoring his food....ngam ... ngam.........ngam!

next plate please.......
By looking at him, I got "extra" appetite!

please line up the dishes....

Finally... he is full... she is full... I also full..
pau pau liow...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
