Bonding At People's Park Cheong Loi

HAVE WALKER WILL GO!!!

This morning I woke up at around 10am after some staggered sleep during the early dawn.  First thing I logged in was my whatsApp messages and it was good news when I read my group's messages.  Someone suggested going for lunch in a secluded shop in old town and someone was also willing to pick me up!!  YAY!!  I wanna go...... and hop hop again!!

This shop is located in old town inside People's Park... I really couldn't imagine that there is such a stall inside the narrow lane here.

In fact the shop is right at the end of the small shops.....
Right at the very end... 
Called Cheong Loi.... *Future*
Bigger version of the signboard...
The last shop here..... the tables were almost full when we arrived around 12pm...
Thanks to my friend who arrived early to book a table for the five of us....
Most of the tables were waiting for food....
Some are prepared food....
The chef behind the crowd....
Another one in front... working without stopping...
My young buddy with her sweet smile....
And one with all grins only.....
Waited almost half hour before the soup arrived... old melon soup...
Then the fresh clams came.... fresh and tasty!
Stewed pork knuckles!
Stir-fried kangkung.... 
And the best dish was the steamed "Wan Yue".... 
We were asked whether we wanted the whole piece or just half...
Of course... The WHOLE piece!!
And for the four dishes with one soup, the bill came to RM67!
Thank you for bringing me for my first meal of the day...
It will last till my dinner time cos I ate so much!!!!

  1. The makan place looks shabby but the food is so good! Usually places like this, no frills no glamour, but can get good food at affordable prices.

  2. Such a lovely place. I would love to go there. These places have character, not like those new, lifeless, pretentious places. Sad that there are not many left now...

  6. So many years in Ipoh and we didn't even know about this place. It is so well hidden.

  7. wow, indeed a very retro looking place but this place is surely attracting people to dine there, look at the crowd!! and you mentioned the kitchen crew work non-stop and you had to wait for 30 minutes before the dishes started serving.. i see the photos and definitely worth the wait, all looks so delicious~~ :)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
