A Scrumptious Treat In Kok Thai Restaurant, Ipoh

Laksa feast over and my girl safely back in college, we took a slow drive back to Ipoh.. it was raining heavily then. If not for my son who was the driver that moment, I would have panic for sure if I were to drive in such a heavy downpour. Nowadays my eyes are not so sharp as before and the heavy rain sure will worsen my sight on the roads...

We reached home around 5pm... soon it was time for dinner?  So fast?  But we did not go out till it was 7.30pm... and we were still undecided where to go... .  My son has 101 suggestions and finally somehow, we landed ourselves in Kok Thai Restaurant.. by then our stomachs were "very ready" for FOOD!

      Andy's Orders..... 
All Tasty Food!
Claypot Seafood Varieties... mushrooms, sea cucumbers, fish maws, oysters .. etc..
"HOI MEI POE" 

Assam Curry Seafood consisting of fish, prawns, cuttlefish and vegetables...
 Braised Yam...
Dragon Green Leaves...
(Siew Loong Choy?)

Four dishes for four persons plus drinks plus GST comes to RM102 ($34)
 Thank you for the Scrumptious Meal, AA...

  1. All looks so scrumptious. First two dishes, my favourite. 1st dish consists alot of "ho liao"', I think that dish itself cost a bomb.

  13. I like all the dishes. Love the yam but not the fatty pork bits - this is the yam with pork belly dish, right?
    Good price. The 1st 2 dishes very "chat fan" so I gotta tahan when I eat dishes like this.

    Have a good long weekend Claire!

    Best wishes,

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....

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

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
