Short Trip To Taiping

Nothing much to do on a weekend, we made a short trip to Taiping, a 45 minutes drive from Ipoh. Reached Taiping around 10am and we wanted to try the dim sum along the main road. Unfortunately, there was no more "pau" (dumplings) left, even the waitress was sweeping away already. We ended up taking a few plates of dim sum and left the shop.
Along the main road in Taiping... 
Drove the town area cos we wanted to locate the Kakak shop for noodles....
Took some time cos I cannot recall where.... 
But finally got it after some turning here and there...

The lady in charge... very presentable at the front.... 
Not much crowd already.. breakfast was nearly over....
The portion is very big... I couldn't finished them all....
Too much chicken meat too... 
I think I won't order this again the next time... 
With full stomach, we loitered around Taiping town...
And looked for some durians....
Found a stall that sells Balik Pulau durians...
But the prices were a bit too steep..
Ended up buying one...
I think I will go Penang next week... 
Shall we organize a meet up? :)
Didn't manage to take much pictures...
Not a "food-ful" trip this time...
Perhaps next week......

  7. I have not been to Taiping before. Looking at your photos, I just love the huge trees there. Although not "food ful" but you managed to jalan jalan makan angin in Taiping so it is all good.

    Shops really should offer smaller portion of food for small eaters like us. I don't mind paying the same price for a smaller portion. In this way no food will be wasted.

    Speaking of durians, I have not eaten any durians after my post on durian. So sad. Sob sob.

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
