Coffee Murals In Ipoh

Every new day we start off our day with a good meal... but not every time the food tastes good.  I was told by one of my FB friends that the fish noodles in this shop tasted not bad.  I won't be naming the shop because the food disappointed not only me but also my friends as well.   Well, it is not surprising... not everyone's taste is the same, right?  Thus the proverb... "One man's meat is another man's poison."
My friend ordered seafood noodles... 
She told me that though the ingredients were lots but the taste is somehow bland...
Maybe not enough MSG... hahahaaa...
This is my bowl of fish noodles... 
Very pathetic looking compared to the ones I used to take....
Well..... got to try then only we know, right?
But Once tried....  never buy....
On the way back, these Giant Coffee packets caught our eyes....
Good that they painted these high up...
Can avoid vandalism....
One look at these, people will know that IPOH is famous for her coffee....  
Sip..... sippp... sippppppp.... Finished..... !
The thirst is quenched especially on a hot sunny day!

  1. yalor, never try never know.. if good, then you found a gem you could go more often.. if not good, then you have one place less to go.. and i think that "kopi-o tapao" surely is a gem!! i like it, so nice and so "Malaysian", kudos to whoever did that!! :)

    1. I am not a coffee lover, Ginny... no, the building is not a factory but to beautify the walls on an old building...

  5. Seafood noodles looks great but sad to say that it turns out to be a disppointment. Owh, I never know Ipoh is famous for its coffee and I thought it was pamelo all the while.

  8. I thought the pictures look good, then after reading I look back, they somehow look less appetizing. I guess they are right when saying, your perception will influence how you look at things hahaha.

    1. Yes, I believe so... words are very sharp.. people tend to change their perception of things after reading... but it is best to try them out before making a conclusion... especially on food..

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
