Half Way To Hakka Village, Balik Pulau

MY NEIGHBOUR TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD VISIT HAKKA VILLAGE IN BALIK PULAU... Oh, I didn't know there is such a tourist spot up on the hills, all I think of is Durians when one mention Balik Pulau or Laksa.  Since I am in the travel mode, I suggested to my friend who willingly oblige to go and have a look at the place.

Using Waze, we managed to go through some village and ended up at a small lane leading up to Hakka Village.  But the road was so narrow, we were having some second thoughts whether to go or not to go.... and while contemplating, we spotted something more attractive and eventually we aborted our idea of going up and up...
The road leading up to Hakka Village....
Looks kind of narrow, just enough for one car to go through.... 
Isn't this something more attractive?
We saw this crowd while on the narrow road and quickly we parked our car at the side...
The durian trees just next to the stall....
With the durian family looming above our heads.... 
This is a much better adventure!
Ladies do know how to enjoy Life, eh... 
I also WANT!
Beautiful on the inside..... 
Durians brings us together!
Let's eat and be merry!!

  1. I know you get durians any way and any how you can. But this is the first time I have seen you get them straight from the tree! The best and freshest way!

  7. Hmm.. I think now still not the best time yet. Wait another 2-3 weeks, then the liu lian season in full swing, all species of exotic liu lian also you can eat! :P

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

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... 

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
