Foodie Explorers Strike Gopeng

IT WAS AN UNPLANNED TRIP THIS MORNING... I was thinking that I would have to "feed myself" today, no more outing as we did not plan anything the day before.

Was wondering what to eat for lunch when suddenly I heard "Ting" on the whatsApp... it was around 11am when the good news came... "Who wants to go Gopeng cos I need to do something there".... Quickly I put up the "hands up" icon in the apps... hahahahaha... 

And around 12 noon, I was picked up again and off we went to Gopeng, a half an hour drive from my house...


Retired Foodie Explorers Strikes to Gopeng....
We were aiming for this stall.... 
Heard that this stall has been operating for years... 
From father to son and now the son is almost 70 I guess.... 
Both brother and sister are manning the stall... 
Opens at 11 something... and sold out by 1pm!
We were kind of blessed... w
When we reached, he told my friend it was all finished..
Then suddenly he asked us how many bowls of porridge we wanted...
He must have done some "magic" and soon.... 
.....The food appeared on our table.... 
His special porridge.. it might be plain but the cooked with chicken broth...
*I suspected la....*
Wahhhhh... just look at this!!
The taste and all really reminded me of my childhood "steamed chicken"
Really Authentic la!!
We ordered two bowls of porridge and the chicken...
He only collected RM15 from us... 
We gave a WAHHH.... expression!
We also tried other stalls.... such as the Gopeng noodles.... 
With their signature "Fish Cake".... RM4.50
And not to be left out...
LAKSA!!
With some mighty balls... RM5
And I am blessed with the last bowl of Gingko Barley Fuchuk.... RM2...
Oh my Food!!
I mean OUR FOOD! 
And....
My Foodie Gang strikes again!

  2. You're on a food tour of the whole of Perak, is it? Aiyor...the porridge bowl so badly chipped already, shouldn't use anymore. I have steamed chicken too in my blogpost today, corn-fed, yellow colour. Nice!!! So tasty.

  5. I love porridge especially during this hot weather. The chicken portion is huge. All these for only RM15. That's a good deal.

  6. now you are exploring places around Ipoh, how interesting!!! wow, the porridge is sure very flavourful though plain, together with the chicken, i am already very satisfied for the meal.. but you add some more add-ons pulak, really a luxurious (and heavy) meal.. haha!! i love the ending part with the barley gingko desserts too~~ :)

  7. Is the signature "Fish Cake" a vegetarian fish cake? It looks quite unlike the normal fish cake.

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
