Our Generation "Food" Gap...

Apart from Dim Sum in my previous posts, my girl was also yearning for Japanese food.... hmmm... I wonder why the younger generation loves Japanese food so much....

Well, I could only think of one logical reason why I don't really prefer Japanese food... Perhaps it could be due to the fact that I grew up in the 1960s...or 1970s. era...... and during that time, Japanese or Korean food were unheard of.... and I grew up eating chinese and chinese food only!   :)

Back to my topic, to fulfill her food wish, we went to Sushi Zento as per request and I know that she would love to take this Salmon Sashimi... (is this what it is called?  correct me if I am wrong)
Besides this, she just picked and chose others from the moving welt....
I don't mind taking a piece or two ... 
but I don't actually yearn for it as much as she does...
While she enjoyed her Japanese meal....
 ..... my mind was wandering somewhere else???
I guess I was Yearning for these instead....  hahahaa...
One Ton Noodles ah!!!
(Wantan meen)
The best in Ipoh is opposite the old Odeon cinema... (my opinion la)
The wantan noodles are mixed with "lard!"  Best!
See.... my nephew enjoying his bowl of curry mee.... yummmsss!
Give me a plate of Chee Cheong Fun anytime...
And I will enjoy it to the fullest!!

  2. The noodles looks plain with only 1 or 2 miserable leaves of vegetables, no meat & prawn but the Chee Cheong Fun looks yummy. Stomach groaning.

  11. I wonder why restaurants add so many flavours to a pure product like salmon. It can be good however.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
