Taiping Cendol And Restoran Kakak

It was nearly noon when we reached and the first place we wanted to try out was the cendol which has been recommended by a blog friend and we came by here... Bismillah Cendol Taiping... It is along Chung Thye Phin Road, in fact there are three cendol stalls around that vicinity...
But we chose this cos I saw people standing and sitting here...
Where there is a crowd, the food must be ........... (fill in the blanks.. hahahaa)
 Besides the cendol stall, there is also Pasembor and a laksa stall nearby as well... 
 Jameema Cendol...
 We ordered a plate of Pasembor to share....
How's the taste?
Well, all I can say is I like it...
The gravy is not so thick so it is not that "filling"...
 How about the cendol?
 Compared to Penang Road one, this one is less creamier and not so sweet...
Kind of suitable for the more health conscious ones like me.... hahahaa....
I finished up the whole bowl without feeling "worried"....
 Next we "jumped on the wagon"...
and we found this Kakak Restaurant in Jalan Pasar....
Looking at the crowd on a Sunday afternoon means the food must be good here...
Instead of koay teow (flat noodles), I opted for the "loe shu fun"  (rat noodles)
 A very "size-zy" bowl but I managed to finish it all the same! 
We added a few fish balls as extras and....
oh dear, I forgot to take the picture of the sambal!
The sambal belacan (chilie paste) is the "Ummph" and the "Kick"....
The cost is RM3.80 per bowl..
And my stomach was super full by then....
Time to rest.... ZZZzzzzz.....

  10. Kakak is the only well known keow teow soup for outstation people and visitors... There are many other places which are much nicer to makan in the morning.

    Next time, show you the way to Bee Loon Yong Tau Foo keow teow soup. Slightly pricey because of so many "liew" you can order from. Their curry noodle is nice too.

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...
