Our Road Side Meal At First Garden

"Where are we going for lunch?" This is the usual question my colleague will ask when we meet up at our office lobby each afternoon. Sometimes we pre-plan our schedule during the morning and at times we are "aimless" as to where to go for lunch.

Normally we do not need to say anything till we are out of our office gates and then let the roads lead us till we make a decision... something like.... Have Road Will Travel....

This afternoon the roads led us to First Garden... when we reached there, we saw there were a few hawker stalls... well... the rest of the story is here below...
A lone hawker stall... 
feeling curious, I went over to see what he has...
ended up buying these for our lunch...
3 pieces of vegetable dumplings (kau chi)
and a piece of raddish cake....
Another hawker stall selling Rojak (mixed fruits)
sprinkled with lots of nuts....
a bowl of beancurd dessert with coconut sugar, 
Rojak and Dumplings....
Hence, we ended up sitting by the roadside 
to take our "kind of funny" lunch...


  1. simple crispy dumplings.. looks yummy yummyy!!

  2. ooo dumpling n rojak selling together??
    how is the rojak taste?

  3. the raddish cake comes with lap cheong inside?? looks very nice leh, of course also the pan fried gao ji and the rojak, so generous to give so many peanuts..

  4. eunice: they tasted not bad actually..

    kathy: oh u like rojak?

    simpleperson: they are opposite each other.. the rojak there is not bad..

    sk: roadside stalls offer better options..cheaper too!

  5. Occasionally, I allow myself to do the same, gulping down all the food I found in the night market without being bothered too much about calories and cholesterol. It's fun eating this way.

  6. hehe, kind of funny lunch, but i think its "kind of nice" lunch too! :)

  7. I think I would tried the mixed fruits with nuts


  8. looks good to me!!!

  9. So how did it taste, would you go back? It all looks really good for vendor food, except for the nut covered stuff.

  10. Yumz!
    But I could imagine what my Mom would have said if she ever saw me eating these foods for lunch, "don't eat lap chap yea, have a proper meal!" Lolz

  11. Huh? I thought I commented already leh?

  12. stp: tak nampak pun?

    gratitude: yes, moms are always right, u know.. hahaha..

    isaac: yes, good to eat lap chap once awhile..

    pam: eat away!!

    ginny: vendors food are cheap and nice.. hahaha..

    wenn: nice food near your place!

    gigi: yes, they do..

    filip: great!

  13. I don't mind taking roadside food, most of them taste nice one, may be because of extra ingredient - dust.

  14. They all look yummy to me...I don't mind sitting at roadside long as they taste good.

  15. yan: u r very right!! :)

    mery: added ingredients.. hahaa..

  16. Dumpling looks delicious. How about the tao fu fa? Good?

  17. The tao fu fa and rojak looks delicious. I do sometimes took lunch from the hawker stall...

  18. That's a simple yet special lunch. Every day eating rice and noodle also boring. haha...

  19. wow yummy, sometimes the simplest things taste the best... never been there before thought, shd get the dierections there when i am ipoh next time

  20. i didnt know that the lady has gula melaka for her tau foo the dumpling nice?

  21. lena: dumpling nice.. the lo bak koe also fine.. yes, she has black and white sugar...

    kristen: ok, u can ask me.. hahaha..

    kimura: not bad..

    alv: cos nowadays not many roadside stalls..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
