Old Town Kopitiam At M Boutique Hotel, Ipoh

Long lunch hour today... Elin and I were undecided where to go for our lunch. Both of us were not very hungry and secondly, the weather was really discouraging. We wanted something light and at the same time, the place must be cooling and nice. :) After some suggestions, both of us agreed to go to Old Town Kopitiam at M Boutique Hotel.
M Boutique Hotel or is it M Hotel Boutique?
The reception/lobby reminded me of those chinese medicine shops
during the Ching/Quan /Dynasty as shown in TVB series...
(I guess I've seen too much Astro these days!)
I didn't take any pictures of the reception, not so comfortable doing so...
But I did ask about the rates though...
For standard room, it is around RM200 inclusive of breakfast for two..
Not too bad... 
Government rates is around RM160.... 
We proceeded to the Old Town Kopithiam...
 Once seated, we were requested to order our drinks first...
As for the food, Elin was busy browsing through the menu...
Both of us ordered our Honey Lemon Ice drink... 
It was so quenching and nice especially during such hot humid weather...
I wanted something light... so I ordered Laksa  RM9,90
And Elin ordered a Banana French Toast RM7.90
Just look at my laksa bowl!  So enormous, right?
Really worth the price cos I just love it!
Not too sour... not too spicy.. thick with sardine...
And in such a cooling place, I don't mind paying a bit more...
Definitely will come by here again for the Laksa again!

  7. I don't remember seeing any banana french toast in our Old Town menu in KL.. Ok maybe got but macam tak perasan pulak.. These few days we didn't go out for lunch coz so hazy, nobody wanted to drive.. So either we bring food from home or tapau from downstairs canteen..

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

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
