Ipoh Breakfast And Lunch Treasures

THIS WEEKEND WAS FILLED WITH FUN AND LAUGHTER!   One of my "Empat Sekawan" came up to visit us and we had a wonderful time catching up with another.. Four of us slumbered in my house for the weekend and it was all noise, talking on top of our voices without any restrictions... What more can one ask... Good true friends are not easy to come by... I am indeed very blessed with so many good friends!  Another capital F is not forgotten too... FOOD!

We woke up earlier than usual and took our breakfast in Pulau Sembilan coffeeshop in Taman Boon Bak.  Within three days, I came by this place for the same food... same stall....
We ordered two versions to try.... 
This is the dry version of chicken koay teow.... 
Who says Malaysian food is "healthy?"
As long as tasty, we tend to overlook the "unhealthy" side, right?
The soupy version for my friend to try....
She likes it!
Price per bowl is RM4.40

Fast forward.... for lunch we went to Sin Hup Heng Chaizhou Restaurant for plain porridge with a few selective signature dishes... 
 Salted crispy meat....
Stewed cabbage... not to be missed...
 Warm from the wok ... Salted kembong fish... very nice!
Bitter gourd with eggs... hot and nice...
Leeks is my favourite too!
 Five dishes for the four of us...  
And the bill came to RM43 with porridge and drinks.... 
I can take porridge anytime... my favourite.. 
After all, I am a Teochew nang! :)

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
