Special Steamed Fish In Chemor

COME MONDAY MORNING... I had an early breakfast with my ex-colleagues again, I forgot to take a picture of us, really "muhibbah-styled"... It is nice to get together once awhile to catch up with old and new ongoings that is happening around us. We had breakie in Silibin and I had capati, seems I am into Indian food these days!

 Immediately after my breakie, I parked my car in the office and waited for my two "foodie buddies" to join me for lunch!  Our destination was Chemor and it took almost half an hour to reach.  Anyway, it was still early when we reached Chemor... And we were quite undecided as to which to eat... Fish head noodles or steamed fish with rice??   Then we settled for the latter....
Before we arrived, my friend told me that I might not like what I see... 
Well, nothing so shocking to me... I am used to seeing and eating at sheds....
As long as the food is GOOD!
To quench our thirst, this is a good choice... 
Fresh Umbra Juice in Anchor Beer glass... hahahaa....
WIB to imitate MIB... 
And a cookie to go as "appetizer" before the meal.... 
We were the early birds and we had to wait for more than half hour 
for the chef to prepare the dishes... 
He was still busy "chopping" up the ingredients when we arrived...
We ordered eggs fried with bitter gourd....
Tapioca leaves in garlic... 
And their Special is Steamed Talapia with lots of Garlic, Ginger and Chilipadi!
The fish has no smell and very fresh too...
Three dishes in all... 
And the bill comes to RM47 ($12usd???)
Oooopppsss... don't start eating first... 
Somebody's camera got to "eat" as well before we humans do.... 
hahahaha...

    1. Got difference ah? Fried egg with bitter gourd.. :)

    2. Got!!! Of course, there is a difference! This is like bitter gourd omelette - a lot of egg, can hardly see the bitter gourd. Usually, it is fried bitter gourd with egg added, mostly bitter gourd and not so much egg. Salted egg would be great too...and some use century egg as well. All nice!

  3. I like 2 types of steamed fish.. The "cheong jing" (taucu sauce) and the normal garlic+ginger+sesame oil sauce... I like the fukua chin tan too, but normally I'll stick to fu-yong egg coz the kids like it..

  11. I always enjoy meeting up with ex colleagues! There is more to gossip and talk without reservations than to meet relatives! Oh dear, relatives can be good actors.
    Wow! Yummy Umbra juice again. When I posted about Umbra juice, it was like kicking up a storm here as it is very rare to find this drink in KL. I believe you guys enjoy ample healthy juices easily in Ipoh.

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 …
