Birthday Celebration In Shing Lee Restaurant, Ipoh

Celebrated my ex-classmate's birthday few days ago in a restaurant we had not been before ever since it changed owners last year. The restaurant is called Shing Lee originated from Jelapang and recently opened another branch opposite Jaya Jusco in Ipoh Garden.  It was quite empty on a Friday evening... and since this was our first time there, we did not really know what to order....
 Birthday girl wanted to try the Cod fish... 
Half piece steamed and half deep fried...
I think it would be advisable to order those swimming in the tanks... 
We ordered some greens..
Two Flower Crabs... and the flesh is very fresh!
And a plate of Sang Mee... 
Not too bad...
I didn't have a good appetite that night...
I feel some kind of virus coming on to me.... 
But it didn't dampen the atmosphere...
The bill came to RM120 inclusive of rice and drinks..
Happy Birthday CH!
My friend since 1973...
In fact all of us are pretty Old Friends... 
hahahaha...
Somehow the group is getting smaller and smaller...
Anyway, no worries...
Good friends are hard to come by...
So... do treasure the time we have every now and then...

  9. "I think it would be advisable to order those swimming in the tanks..." I hear it is best not to - they've been out of their natural habitat for dunno how long, so may not be nice. If nice and new, of course that would be best. I prefer mud crabs to these flowery ones...but they're expensive, can't afford to eat, maybe once in a long while.

    1. Mud crabs are nice nice.. flower crabs have their own sweetness as well.. those swimming in the tanks are normally fresher than those kept in the freezer.. :)

  11. The flower crab is very pretty. I have not heard of this kind before. I hope you will be alright! Drink lots of water, and have honey too. It kills bacteria. Be well, my friend.

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

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....

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...
