Friendship And Food Knows No Bounds

SINCE IT IS SORT OF "CONFINEMENT" PERIOD FOR ME, I was thinking of the confinement food that I used to eat during those yesteryears... hahahaaa...  

When my friends called me to say they were coming for lunch, it was no surprise to them when I mentioned that I was yearning for some ginger wine chicken!  And they readily agreed to wherever I want to eat.... so nice of them to come pick me up, patiently waiting and helping me to lock up the door and hopping to the car with my faithful walker.... and then we set out for the confinement food...

Till today, I do not know the name of the shop, it is just No. 2 to us.....
It is a corner house along the main road in Ipoh Garden....
And every lunch hour, there are cars just parked outside the house..... 
Quite popular even among the young adults.....
My friends ordered pineapple juice.... 
Vinegar pig trotters with an egg...
This portion is for one person and each dish came with a big plate of brown rice...
And a piping hot ginger wine chicken with black fungus...
I could eat and drink the whole bowl by myself if I were really under confinement..
But since I am not, I dare not drink it all...
Don't want to risk having sore throat the next day!
With so much meat, a plate of greens is best to go with our meal.....
Thank you for the "confinement" lunch, dears...
And Thank you for coming to visit me time after time
Thank you for helping me with my chores and hops too!
I hope our food adventure will start to begin.... again....
Food and friendship know no bounds, I guess!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
