Authentic Shop Hoong Toh In Old Town

My mom told me that she has not been to Hoong Toh restaurant for more than 30 years or more now! Oh dear, I must take her here one day, I told myself... Hoong Toh is not a high class restaurant but it was one many years ago. Weddings were held in this shop and the last time I attended the wedding, yes, it was more than 30 years ago. I guess all the old chefs have retired by now and needless to say, the authenticity of the food has also gone with them. With one consolation in mind, perhaps the cooks have passed on their "secret recipe" to the ones who have taken over....

One fine evening I took my mom and "company" here for dinner.... Now she doesn't have to say she has not come by for more than 30 years already!   hahahaaa....
The place has been "refurbished" ... those days, it was not as "bright" as it is today...
What do these painting depict?

When it comes to ordering, we allow the "lady boss" to suggest...
She told us this is their signature dish... "Hoong Toh Meen"
It goes well with the vinegar ... according to individual...
This is a "Must"... 
Yee Wat Hor Fun
(Fish paste with flat noodles)
Good try for the first timers...
Singapore mihun...
I think my handphone camera is not doing some credit here... (lighting problem)
For side orders, this is nice... crispy fried wanton...
And their signature "popiah/lobak"
I cannot remember the name...
It is crispy on the outside and a combination of minced meat and vegetables on the inside...
And now the bill... 
I was a bit taken aback to be splashed with ;RM55 +-
What do you say?

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

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
