Signature Dishes At Marpoh, Ipoh

It was not a surprise to me when my weighing scale showed that I have gained Two Kg!  Yes, I was expecting the scale to move right instead of left... from 47kg to 49kg in just a month or so.  The quantity that I have consumed and the lack is exercise is not at all "healthy" .... I really must do something about it.... seriously, I should and I hope I could....

With all the festive seasons and trips I have been going, it is about time for me to slow down.  My girl is going back to college soon and I think after that, I will be able to trim down. *believe me*   No more eating out at least, I will just take oats for dinner or perhaps I just take fruits... 

All being said and not done yet, we had another scrumptious dinner for the six of us in Marpoh Restaurant, Ipoh Garden.   We ordered four dishes only and these are the kids' favourite...
Their signature sauce for Talapia... RM30
This is called "Cheong Cheng Kam Foong Yue"
Just the sauce alone is very appetizing...
Not too spicy and sweet...
Butter creme crayfish aka "lai liew har"  RM20...
Tasty to the brim!
Alright... can anyone guess what this is"?
They are not fried french fries, for one thing...
My kids love them... my nephews, nieces love them too...
Try guessing... 
They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside....
And the Thai sweet sauce is just the right combination!

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...
