Gathering At Tuck Kee Restaurant, Pasir Pinji And Secret Garden

I THOUGHT I COULD NOT MAKE IT FOR THE GATHERING LAST SATURDAY due to an appointment in the evening.  But it was cancelled at the last minute and I was glad that I could make it to my ex-classmates' gathering after all.  At our age now, we try to make it to meet up as whenever the opportunity arises.  At our golden age with kids all grown up and away, this is the time to catch up with our old friends... meeting up and calling each other by our Chinese names indeed brings back old childhood days and we kind of feel young again...at least for some sweet moments!  hahahaha... 

This time we had our dinner gathering at Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji.  So nice of my friend to pick me up from my house, nowadays I do not drive out during the night if I could help it, my eyes are not so sharp now especially rainy season now in Ipoh.  Near distance is fine, anywhere further than 15 minutes, I prefer to be "picked up."  *hint, hint*
This time there were only eight of us... nice number too...
At least we can hear each other's conversation without much distraction...  :)
And our dishes consisted of the following... 
Acar as appetizer... 

Claypot braised ribs with yam... RM45 which I feel is a bit too "steeped"... 
Cabbage with almonds flakes and bacon... 
This dish is not too bad.. gave me an idea on what to do with cabbage next time..
Steamed chicken with shredded ginger... 
I prefer lots and lots of ginger to cover the chicken...
Beancurd with spinach and mushrooms... 
This dish is kind of special... stuffed mushrooms with "wai sang" and gingko... 
Claypot seafood.... 
With these few dishes, the bill came to RM254.00...
As for desserts, a few of us adjourned to Secret Garden for muffin and drinks... 
It has been a long time since I last went there... 
Nice ambience for bonding and catching up with friends and family...

  1. Ooooo...food looks so good, everybody looking great! Yes, yes, good to get together with all friends as often as we can, bonding for old times' sake. I enjoy that very much too. That acar looks great - that alone with rice, enough for me - so appetising!

  3. We love to go to Tuck Kee, especially for birthday celebrations. Never fail to order their "Mun Cheong" chicken (similar to the one u had). Looking at your pics, I think we'll try some of your other dishes the next time round.

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...
