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..

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
