Dinner At Gunong Rapat And Ipoh Garden

MY IPOH KITCHEN IS NOT OPENED YET... due to some renovation, the place is still in a mess! I really dread any repairs in the house, there is so much dust everywhere, everything needs to be cleaned up again... and again... sigh... Well, after a long holiday, it is time to work, right? Got to start somewhere and the most appropriate place is right in our own Sweet Home! :) And that is what my project is.. this minor renovation will keep me occupied for at least a week or two before I start to pack again... hahahaa... 

Since I cannot use the kitchen as yet, I have to take my main meals outside... for tonight's dinner, I drove all the way to Gunong Rapat Main Road to take "not-so-healthy" food again... The tasty ones are always not so healthy... why is it so???  Anyway, moderate portions and once awhile, it should be alright, kan?  *Self consolation again*

 The stall just next to a church on the main road in Gunong Rapat...
I made the orders.... Fried Koay Teow..
Big noodles was next and it was so "lardy" fragrant!
The side order is crispy fried Wanton!  They seem oil-less though... 
It is RM3 per plate... still hot and fresh...
Eaten with Sambal Belacan is the best option...
As if the above meal was not enough, we adjourned to Ipoh Garden Gourmet Square...
 For a plate of RM6 rojak...
I didn't take much... my teeth is feeling weird!
But a bowl of Creamy Ice Kacang managed to tempt me...
Over here in Malaysia, we have fresh santan to use
whereas in my sister's place, all they have is tin can santan... 
Fresh or tin can, I should not indulge too much in it...
But then again, once awhile is "acceptable"... kan?

  1. hahaha, even if your ipoh kitchen is opened, i guess the ratio of cooking to eating out also very low lah, haha!! wow, today's dinner is rather, errrmmmm, oily huh?? all the fried noodles and the deep fried stuffs, plus Malaysian style desserts, well no need to elaborate more on Malaysian desserts, right?? haha.. but like you said, once in a while, acceptable lah..

  14. While u enjoy life as a retiree, I think u should eat less outside and eat more home cooked food. This is to help maintaining a healthy body, not for the sake of yourself, but for the sake of your children, who eventually will be taking care of you. I am sure you do not want to be a burden to them, due to Heath reason. Having lots of fun now by eating unhealthy food may not be wise, after all..

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
