Sweating For Food In Gunong Rapat

I had another bout of "sauna" again this weekend, this "sweating endlessly" is not done under the appointment of a beautician... but perspiring under the Ipoh sun in Gunong Rapat again! See, nothing stops me... but I think this is it! Two times consecutively within a week is enough... not encouraged to take so often, right?  (especially for age group people like me here.....)
this time I wanted to try their "steamed sotong"
and it was presented like this.... the "kangkong" was perfectly made.. soft and nice..
how to resist not taking?
Ok, for this time only.... 
Another not to missed is the fried stuff that the lady made.....
For these plates, it cost RM11....
See what I meant by "sauna?"
No fan... just a canvas roof topping..
see the crowd?  
most of them order to take away...
how to stand the hot sun in the afternoon?
but for the sake of food, my patience was tested..
and they finally arrived after 15 minutes or so....
I prefer to eat it there and then...
The taste is more "original" this way.  :)
But I can't wait to finish the food and
get back to the cooling air in the car.... 
pheww...enough is enough...


  1. That's my favorite! I'm concern more on the yau yu. Is that fresh??

  2. No way will I queue for anything, never mind how good...thank you very much.

  3. My favourite. Worth the sweating, hehehe!!!...

  4. june: very fresh.. wish it is a healthy food but it is not.. :)

    stp: chat around first to pass time.. sitting down ok.. i cannot stand for long too...

    irene: can lose calories, right?

  5. Notty Claire! Wei....dont eat so much these stuffs ah...not fully well yet... later fall sick susah

  6. I didn't knew there is this place called gunung rapat despite being in Kampar for 3 years already until I read this post.

  7. kathy: now u made me scared and worried.. ok.. cut down, cut down, i must!

    anne: from your place coming to ipoh, just after simpang pulai is gunong rapat on the right..

  8. I wont sweat for food, no matter how good they are? Coz I'll feel very uncomfortable and then wont appreciate the goodness in the food :(

  9. I still can tahan the warmness but not my kids and hubby. Most probably I will have to tapau under such a hot weather..but still better than raining right? the food look delicious to me though!

  10. Sounds kind of miserable! 15 minute wait is not too bad, one evening we waited over an hour for our food!!!

  11. Sotong kangkung!!!

    I was so much in love with this dish, didn't have it for ages because I heard the sotong is bleached in 'something'?

  12. Not a fan of sotong kangkung but I can see the sotong is very huge.

    Need to get a fan la, Claire. I also cannot stand the heat

  13. you were there for lunch yesterday?? hey, i was in Ipoh over the weekend and was in Gunung Rapat to get some "heong peng" yesterday afternoon too~~

  14. even here it is freaking hot

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? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... 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

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... 

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
