Older And Wiser Kopitiam At Bandar Baru Menglembu, Ipoh

My eyes sparkled at the pictures which my friend, May Tan, posted up recently in her Facebook and they got me smitten... She used to tell me that whenever food is the topic, my eyes will sparkle!  hahahaa.. That is her way of describing my passion for food.  Am I really that obvious?  In cantonese, it is called "Wai Sik" meaning I like to eat anything edible!

Back to the topic... since I did not know where the place was, she took the trouble to wait for me at the Farlim traffic light and from there, she led us to this place called Older & Wiser Kopitiam in Menglembu.... it was lunch time when we reached and we had to wait for a short while before we were seated.  We didn't order much because we were still full from our breakfast....
Wanton Noodles....
Roasted duck to go with the noodles or rice...
Roasted and BBQ Pork...
Crispy and sweet....
These suit me real fine... not too fat and not too lean...
A small bowl of "Chap Choy"
Very nicely done!
For the three of us, the bill came to RM29 with drinks.
I think it is not too expensive...
Heard that the Nasi Lemak is also nice here...
So I think we will come back again for sure!


Here is the address... 
No. 17, Persiaran Kledang Timur 21, 
Bandar Baru Menglembu, 31450 Ipoh, Perak.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
