Cong Yin Meat Noodles At Ipoh Garden South

MOST OF THE MORNINGS, my friends and I went food-seeking... The first meal of the day is an important meal, so they say.... and each morning I am always looking forward to having my breakfast with them.  On this particular morning, it is no different, only difference is that one of us could not make it for breakfast and that left two of us only.  Well, no matter... we still need to nurse our tummy to start off the day.... hahahaha.... 

Well, what to eat and where shall we go, that is always the question on our mind.... Ipoh is very small, we seem to be taking a repetition of food now and then....

Finally after some moments, we decided to go to Cong Yin along Lebuh Raya Taman Ipoh, Ipoh Garden South.... Cong Yin literally means "Scholar" ... and I wonder why the owner has this name in mind when he opened this shop .... hmmmm..... Cong Yin is a pork noodles shop and it draws crowds especially on every weekend....

We made our orders upon entering the shop.... 
They have Bah Chang hanging in front of the stall.... 
But we ordered these as our "side-kick" instead.... 
Crispy Fried Dumpling.... 
Before the food was served, we had our dessert drink....
I like this warm water chestnut with fresh corns.... 
It cost around RM3 a bowl..... 
And after a few minutes, my serving arrived...
With pork noodles, I always opt for Loe Shu Fun...
I am not sure how much it cost now...
For a breakfast meal like this, it is normally around RM10 per person anytime!
So that explains why I do not take lunch on most days!!
hahahahaaa....

  6. The full name of this pork noodles is 状元及第 noodles (Cong Yin Cup Dai), literally translated as "May you be the first rank at the examination for the Hanlin Academy". The famous Ming Dynasty scholar 'Loon Mun Chooi' who was born poor studied very hard in order to pass with distinction in the imperial examination. He grew vegetables and sold them around the neighbourhood to earn a living. One of his neighbours, a congee seller, frequently bought vegetables from the scholar. Whenever the scholar delivered the vegetables to him, he would treat him with a bowl of porridge laden with pork innards. Despite passing the imperial exam with the highest distinction, the scholar did not forget the kindness of his neighbour. He returned to the village for the tasty porridge. 'Cong Yin Cup Dai' was the name he gave the porridge.

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... 

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
