At Foh San, Ipoh For A Bite

I think it has been more than a year or two since I last went to Foh San Dim Sum in Ipoh.  Being a local, I don't really go there, I prefer other "Dim Sum" shops than the popular ones.  Having said that, we went there one fine Sunday, joining in the crowd.... all for the love-sake for my girl. :)
 The ground floor was crowded.... and we came up... 
just nice timing to see one small table for the three of us....
Having sat down, my girl took the card and went to get the food..
Yes, it is self serviced except for some special selection...
She brought back a few items...
All her favourite food... actually....
 Steamed Chee Cheong Fun on the outside but crispy fillings on the inside....
 Some sweet desserts....
 Ma Lai Koh...
 Char Siew Poh and Sang Yuk Pau... (All meaty dumplings)
Part of the food we ordered...
After that, my turn to take my glutinous chicken rice and fish balls....
After this meal, I think I will refrain from Dim Sum for at least one month  :)

  1. I think I've seen mummy bloggers posting on Foh San dimsum.. Yes, it's crowded, you'd be lucky to get a place.. Hmm, mention about dimsum only, I must have a few things, here goes: siew mai, fried fish balls (read: fried, and not normal steamed "yue mai"), sui kow or prawn dumplings with mayonaise dip, woo-kok, char siew pau, fried carrot cake (chau lobak koh) and lastly, egg tarts.. Ooohh, and a bowl of hamtan-peitan-housi-sauyoke porridge, kekekeke..

  2. I like foh san actually, not because of absolute taste but the myriad choices available, smaller dim sum eateries are unable to provide many types of dainty dim sum dishes :D

    1. But I think the things there are a bit overpriced.. anyway, once awhile, it is good to taste different varieties from different dim sum shops...

  5. I love this shop and I think they have the best Egg Tarts that could beat TongKei chain in KL...
    Ipoh has few really excellent Dim Sum shops that could be at par with Hong Kong 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...
