Farewell Lunch At Mandarin Kitchen Restaurant In Farlim, Ipoh

Another farewell lunch for one of my colleagues who has actually retired in March but due to unforeseen circumstances, the treat is postponed until this afternoon! Bless her, she did not mind the least, as long as we are together again to have a good chat and meal, it is all that counts.

One of my colleagues suggested Mandarin Kitchen Restaurant in Farlim.  I was all for it because I have never been there before.  In less than thirty minutes from our office, we arrived at the restaurant and had a good time tasting the glorious food here.... (besides the non-stop conversations!)

So... what did my friend order..... hmmmmm...... good choices ahead...
Salted egg with bitter gourd... plus crispy cuttlefish as toppings...
Sweetened Honey Meat!
Greens with some dash of yam and toppings as shown....
I ate a lot of these.... greens, I mean.. :)
Another type of greens.... brinjals, smelly beans, long beans and "kangkung"
Moist and crispy beancurd!
Steamed and salted chicken....
Curry Fish Head!
And for the 10 of us, these dishes were just enough...
Who says ladies are small eaters!?
The evergreen appetites!
Happy Retirement to you, Nan!

  9. I think the first dish is tasty enough without the crispy cuttlefish. Ten ladies only - that's why I see the dishes are not polished clean. Well Happy Retirement to your ex-colleague. Next makan will be for your farewell. :D

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
