Signature Dishes In Weng Kee Restaurant, Ipoh

A nice gathering this evening with my ex-colleagues, in fact, an unexpected dinner at the last minute. I suggested going to Weng Kee Restaurant and all readily agreed... Since I was a bit late, I told my friends to order first and I only named two dishes.  Upon arriving my friends asked me why I like coming to this restaurant.  They experienced something discouraging when they were ordering the food ... well, I told them that it was not surprising... as long as the food is fine, I will "overlook" the weakness....

Ok, I will not talk about the unpleasantness 
Allow me to just focus on the pleasure of food....
My friends ordered Sambal Petai... (stinky beans)
Sambal Kangkung....
Their signature beancurd....
Steamed yam with dried shrimps... 
A popular dish among us!
And the limelight of the dinner was the Buttered Fish...
My friends had not tasted this before and it was a Thumb UP from everyone!
And for this dinner, the bill came to RM105.00
Before we left, the lady boss flashed her smile and said "Thank You"....
 It caught my friend off-guarded.... 
hahahahaa....
It was a pleasant evening after all....

  4. If unpleasant, even if the food is good, I have my pride and my dignity. I am old now - in my younger days, I would just scold them . These days, I would just go elsewhere quietly - they're not the only people selling food in town - would not starve to death. This kind of people need to be taught a lesson - just boycott them.

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
