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*

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
