Amica In Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

Come Sunday, the four of us "scratched" our heads again... thinking of the place for our breakfast... or should I say brunch? It was almost 11am when we set out from our house and I drove south this time... I mean we ended up in Ipoh Garden South...

There are a few coffeeshops there and I guess most of the good food would have finished by this time.  I did not have any shop in mind when Amica caught my eye.  Amica is along the RHB Bank in Ipoh Garden South, just opposite Pretty Pets.

There were still a crowd there so I guess the food was not finished yet... True enough... food is still abundant there except for the nyonya cakes and kueh.... but the Uncle's dumplings caught my eye... I ordered a few of these to eat while waiting for the food....
 I chose one of each... they look different from the normal ones...
The black one is nice.. charcoal something?
The filling is kaya, I like it...
Then the flower type of dumpling is also nice, my girl likes it...
And the last yellowish one has black sesame fillings... 
I got up again and went to get another two types...
This one also looks special...
Has black sesame and white on the outside...
And the filling is mashed sweet potatoes!
Something I like to eat too....
Each of these dumpling cost RM1.50
Tried their steamed glutinous rice too...
Not bad... tasty... RM3.50 is not too steep...
 As for the food, we ordered Chee Cheong Fun...
My friend ordered it actually and she said "Okay-la..."
This is mine.... not a good choice... 
The noodles are just too little for me... 
hahahahaa...
 My girl ordered Hakka noodles... 
I didn't try it but she finished all of it... so it must be good...
It came with a bowl of wanton noodles...
 And her friend ordered a plate of Wanton noodles with Braised Duck....
The Hakka noodles and this one above only cost RM7... 
Good pricing!
I will try this one day.... 
And of course, the dumplings too.... 
I like all of them!

  9. Ipoh has a lot of Hakka is it? Because looks like Hakka noodle is pretty common there. Not so in Kuching although Hakka and Hokkien are predominant. ;)

    Indeed unique-looking buns you ordered. Very creative.

  15. This is the first time I heard of dumplings with mashed sweet potatoes! I would love to eat this!
    Seems like now the trend for dumplings have expanded and stuffed with almost anything edible & nice.
    Just like crow's meat pies and dumplings as example! Ever tried this yummy and blueky food? LOL
    I experienced a lot of dumplings in China that send my eye brows up. They even have salted vegies, rabbit meat and anything.... Eeeeeeeee

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....

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
