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!

  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?

  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?

  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..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
