Self Torturing With Ipoh Delights

IN THE MIDST OF MY CONVERSATION WITH MY FRIEND THIS MORNING, we finally came to a point where both of us agreed that Ipoh is indeed the Best place for us to spend our golden years.....

When I am away from Ipoh, I miss her very much!  I mean Ipoh... Been to so many places, local or overseas, I realized my heart is still back home here in Ipoh... No wonder I have so much difficulty adapting to the other food especially those non-Asian ones... That is my problem... I am like a frog underneath a coconut shell when it comes to Food!

Now in my "driver-less" state, I seem to be yearning more and more.... How I wish someone could just bring in these goodies to me... this very minute!!  Yes, I sound very "desperate" for these below... I shouldn't have opened my food folder a moment ago... Now I am DONE!  
Cowan Street or Jalan Raja Ekram dessert shop......
They sell fresh snacks and desserts...
I like them all!!
Even their dilute porridge.... no meat.... just peanuts, a bit of dry oysters and that is it....
Their red bean aka "ang tau" in hokkien is my favourite too!
Steamed yam.... soft to my liking....
Another type of food on my mind right now... is Porridge!
White porridge with this dish is salivating enough for me... 
I am very simple, right????!
Easy dish and best eaten while it is hot.....
Their clear soup with meat bones is making me drool too.....
All these can be taken at the shop next to Grand View Restaurant
near Ipoh Garden East..... 
Anyone passing there this evening?  
Can "packet" some for me, Please????
*self torturing mode*

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
