"Petrol Hike" Pinch Me In Yam Yam, Ipoh Garden South

I normally take my family out during weekends especially Sundays. Sundays are Sabbath day, a time to rest our hands and the pans in the kitchen! :) But each Sunday we will be "cracking" our heads where to go for our dinner. Sometimes I end up browsing through food blogs for places to eat. No joke but it is true... Ipoh is quite limited now when it comes to good Chinese food.. or perhaps there are many other shops which I have not tried as yet.

Last Sunday my niece suggested going to Yam Yam in Ipoh Garden South.  I think I have been there a couple of times but for different food... this time round we have to order food suitable for my mom who is still recuperating from her "missing toe" operation...
We ordered beancurd with "Sing Kwa" (loofah)
Egg plant with fish paste....
These two dishes are suitable for my mom....
Claypot chicken cooked with shredded ginger and wine..
Half "kampong" chicken RM24 
and this is most "appetizing" and "unhealthy"
Intestines cooked with dried shrimps and lots of chillies...
After eating this, I must go for many "walking" rounds!!
The food was not too bad...but I was not happy with the price...
The bill came to RM75 which I think is overpriced for just 4 dishes....
Now I can feel the "pinch"....
Due to petrol prices up, we have to be careful in our spending now...
Eat less outside food... hmmmm.. can we?

  3. Nothing comes cheap these days x'pecially with the petrol hike. Food looks like normal home-cooked, nothing special.But once in awhile eating outside with family is quite enjoyable.

  7. The claypot chicken looks the best to me. How is your mom, did she lose her entire toe? Can she walk alright? How long will she have to diet?

  22. I like to eat the eggplant dish but don't dare to eat the sang cheong dish. 75 for 4 dishes - is it plus rice and drinks? if it is, then it is about the prices here.

  23. I have to say the intestines looks really yummy, though I seldom eat them, hehe~

  24. Your food photos are always nice and sharp. Not many bloggers can do this well besides Suituapui. I love what you ordered to eat. I am not fussy and love to eat anything.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
