Family Treat To Assam House, Greentown, Ipoh

It has been quite some time since we last had a meal in Assam House, Greentown Business Center. I remember the food portions there were pretty big and of course, the pricing is also "big".... hahahaa... Anyway, I called the restaurant to book a table for 11 people and we reached there at around 7pm. If not for the booking, I think we would not be able to get a nice big table....
While waiting for the food....
 .... the cameras or should I say, the handphones?
They started to click here and there....
 Didn't have time to chat much...
The food came out fast cos I ordered them beforehand...
Assam curry fish...
Big portion but my camera didn't give much credit..
This one tastes much better.... petai (stingy beans) with squids....
Kerabu mango..... with.....
Sambal dried prawns and cucmbers....
This is not rojak.... thought it looks like one....
It is called Chicken Rojak.... 
Something different... good choice...
Beancurd with mixed vegetables...
Sprouts with garlic....
Buttered crayfish....
Seven dishes... and the total bill came to RM270 for the 11 of us....
Well, I wouldn't say it is cheap... but then...
After the petrol increase, what is cheap... 
Please tell me.. :)

  1. About Rm25 for a person is considered ok. So many dishes though the sambal dried prawns alone can make people eat many bowls of rice.

  3. Don't worry, I can still see how big the assam curry fish portion is, use the taupok size to compare ;)

  5. But you had crayfish...and squids and curry fish. For 11, I think that pricing is pretty ok. Chicken rojak sounds interesting. Is this in Ipoh? Something like that place you took me to for lunch - Sin Hup Kee Restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam...or maybe, a bit nicer.

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...
