A Good Meal At The YMCA, IPOH

It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A. 
It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A. 
You can get yourself clean,
You can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel...

Do the words above sound familiar?   I bet many knows this song too!

Yes, we got a good meal at YMCA cafetaria just a couple of days ago.  Thinking back, it has been many years since I last went there for dinner.  I thought it was not operating anymore until I came across a post in a food blog lately.  Since then, I bookmarked this place in my "mind" ....

As usual, the four of us went for our dinner and three dishes were more than sufficient for us....
 Just look at their special Beancurd!
So nicely and neatly fried... and crispy at the edges...
Just Perfect!
All of us like it.... 
Second dish.... another one of my girl's favourite...
A very popular dish among us... hahaha..
Last and not least, their signature dish is Shark meat with Salted Vegetables...
Appetizing especially for my mom...
She could finished her bowl of rice because of the sourish vegetables...
And the price?
For the four of us with rice and tea, the meal came to RM34 only!  ($11usd)
I think it is a good deal, right?
Will surely come by again .... soon!


  1. Foods look nice. Everyone loves it and price is reasonable.

  2. Replies
    1. With pork as toppings, I think lagi sedap... hahaa...

  3. wah wah wah!! the toufu looks really delicious lah!! I can have the whole bowl of rice with just this dish (and of course also the gravy).. fooyung egg also one of my favorite.. RM34!!! that's cheap!!

    1. Hope they wont increase after reading this... Lol...

  4. very reasonable priced meal..should go have meals there more often.

  5. Yes, very attractive price! Food looks good too. I am wondering how is the texture of the tofu aside from its crispy skin. Is it smooth and silky?

    1. Yes, inside smooth and soft.. only the skin is crispy like cookies... :)

  6. YES, I remember The Village People sung that song! We have a Y just a few blocks from our house, they are very popular and all over the place here. Are you going to have a big retirement celebration with your children?

    1. No, Ginny.. never thought of it yet.. retirement still some months away...

  7. That's a gay song alright! LOL!!! Food looks homecooked and so so so cheap. I just had lunch with a friend - RM44 for 2, nothing special or expensive. Quite shocked by the total.

    1. Is it really? I never heard about that... anyway, it was so popular in the 1970s... for 2 persons, it surely is expensive..

  8. Not bad woh, quite a good deal for four of you!!! =]

  9. Indeed good meal!

    Make me think of the YMCA song by Village People. Now feel like dancing to that song!

  10. haha..those days we love this YMCA song.
    wow, simple yet yummy..

  11. You made me laugh maam! You always sound happy!

    You know what? The YMCA in KL serves very good meals too and their cafe is always packed like crazy for breakfast and lunch! The restaurant inside YMCA Penang is also packed during dinners cos I have not been there for lunch.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
