Dinner At Chin's Szechuan Restaurant In San Diego

After checking into our resort apartment, it was almost time for dinner.... and I was most excited and happy when I heard that we were going for Szechuan food instead of western food!  Phew... that is really good news to me ...not that I don't like to take burgers and stuff but because I am a rice lover... I must have rice at least once a day or once a week if it is not too much to ask... LOL...

One of my sister's friend is working in this Szechuan restaurant called Chin's and she recommended  their signature dishes under the dimly lit candle light dinner...
At Chin's restaurant
exterior area...
the interior for larger group... candlelight dinner.. 
All the dishes are cooked in Szechuan style...

Szechuan soup....
very appetizing....
fried dumplings...
Szechuan pork ribs...
spicy intestines... sweet sourish...
beancurd with fungus... (tau kun)
stir fried chicken...spicy too!
only this greens is not....
Szechuan style noodles? :)
BIL taught me something new here...
before we use the disposable chopsticks, 
we should "scratch" the two chopsticks against one another..
something like "making a fire" with 2 sticks..
Purpose is to get rid of the "extra wood"" ...
you get what I mean?  Seriously?


  1. Szechuan cuisine supposed to be spicy mah!!! Oooo...that pork dish looks like to die for... *salivating*

  2. wah, everything spicy, i think i can only have the soup and the vege only, hahaha!!

    sometimes i also "scratch" the disposable chopsticks one woh, it's quite common right??

  3. Came across a statement made by a food connoisseur that Malaysian food is spicier than Szechuan food. If that's true, I think we can stomach those hot hot stuff as much as we can.

  4. I used to eat Szechuan cuisine when I lived in New York City back in the 1970s, but not anymore. Too spicy! Food looks good, though.

  5. stp: i love their soup... sourish and appetizing!

    sk: oh, i never scratch them before i do... hahaa..

    pam: i m not a spicy lover.. dip dip can... :)

    gigi: yes.. they are famous for spicy-ness...

  6. I can't really take spicy food but those food really look good..

  7. yes, or we roll them together between our palms to get rid of loose splinters-

    Aloha from Waikiki,
    Have a sweet week
    Comfort Spiral

    > < } } ( ° >

  8. too plenty delicious foods if I were there I wont know what to eat first

  9. yes, over here also got do that...coz sometimes got wood sticking out mah

  10. yummy food... I don't mind the spicy food, but not the 'ma lat' kind of spicy that numb the taste bud.. :D

  11. Gosh!!!..all szechuan dishes. Love the szechuan soup. Sounds like a typical chinese, must have rice.

  12. Oh, scratch the disposable chopsticks together? I've been using them for so long and never learned this trick, haha!

    This Chin's Restaurant looks like any western restaurant. Candle light dinner for Chinese cuisine? Special~~

  13. Candlelight dinner in group, very "romantic". keke
    Oh yes I do scratch those disposable wooden chopsticks, you really can get rid lots of tiny hairy wood on it.

  14. hub will love these szechuan food but not me....even a bowl of curry mee also I feel like crying..LOL!!

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…
