Ipoh And My Foodie Friends!

IT FEELS GOOD TO GO HOME, it is good to reach home in a matter of an hour more but when I think of the flight... hmmmm.... Well, a needle cannot be sharp at two ends... Two options... take a eight hour bus ride or one hour plus flight... which sounds good?  The former cost RM75 and the latter is RM103... and I chose the latter....
And so up and up and away.... we flew....
Above the clouds....
It was a fine weather this morning... Thank God...
After an hour plus, the plane began to descend...
And it feels so good to land....

Upon checking out, my girl and I were whisked into my friend's car... 
and off we went for lunch Marpoh restaurant!
The dishes were already pre-ordered by my ex-colleagues while waiting for us...
Vinegar pork!  
Yummsss!
Fish slices with ginger and spring onions.....
Ma Lai Foong Kong!
Crispy fried Oysters
And besides the yummy food, it is Great to see them once again!!
Food always bring us together no matter far or near...
hahahaaa...

  5. Really Ipoh Food Mayor, like Yang Berhormat, touch down then got personal ahmat to whisk you to food immediately! XD

    I don't like fish in ginger and spring onions like that. Not because I don't like the fish, but because that dish always makes me feel like a moron, I would pick the fish and leave the other stuff alone..

  8. You flew home? I thought you and Fernie drove to JB? Left your car there for son to use? Such a good mum!

    I'd rather fly too...especially when the price difference is so little - cannot imagine those extra long bus rides and all the stops on the way - you would have to spend money to eat some more...and even to use the toilet. May work out to be more or less the same.

  11. Flying is the faster option so it is the better choice since only need to pay a little bit more.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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
