My Not-So-Healthy Dinner In Gunong Rapat, Ipoh

Yes, I know I am not being obedient this evening... when my friends came to pick me up for dinner, they suggested going to Gunong Rapat for fried noodles.  Fried noodles?!?  Oh dear, my poor throat.. but I didn't want to be a damp blanket because another friend was waiting for us at the stall...

Leaving no choice, I followed suit, silently praying that my poor body will be able to endure the "heat" from the "wok."
 We reached here around 7pm... it was still bright then....
This stall is just opposite a primary school in Gunong Rapat 
and they used charcoal to fry the noodles...
A rare sight nowadays....
 We sat as far as we can to avoid the heat from the wok...
Famous for their Sambal Belacan... Great combination with the noodles!
My "unhealthy" dinner for tonight....
Cockles, prawns and eggs with meehoon and flat noodles...
Cost around RM4.50 per plate...
Another not so healthy kind of dessert....
Plate of rojak (various fruits) from a stall in Perak Stadium food court...
Small portion cost RM7...
Dinner is completed....
Hope my voice will still be "around" tomorrow....

  1. The fried noodles looks too good to resist. Hope your throat is alright after taking the fried stuff. Drink tea to get rid of the heatiness in your body.

  11. Haha, I am definitely more obedient than you...I won't mess with a sore throat especially...it can take so long to recover! Hope you get well soon :-)
    The prawns do look very juicy, and it's amazing that they have five of these in a plate of Char Koay Teow! The prawns in Penang's Char Koay Teow are larger but they are very rare and precious though :-P
    Take good care, and stay away from unhealthy food! ;-)

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
