Steamed Fish Head At Tai You, Ipoh

STRAIGHT TO LUNCH after having done all the household chores in the morning.  After a few whatsapp messages, I drove straight to Pasir Puteh to pick up two good friends of mine.  During the twenty minutes drive to their place, my mind was filled with where and what-to-eat.  By the time I reached their place, I know where to take them.  It has been a long time since I last ate at this shop along Jalan Bendahara.

The shop is called Dai You and it used to be popular for steamed fish head among other dishes.  But the last time I came, it was a lady cook.  I guess the stall has changed hands, this time it was a man with moustache.... anyway... we sat down and ordered just two dishes cos one of my friends wanted to take chicken koay teow instead... no, it is not because of the moustache cook, she just wanted noodles instead of rice..... hehehe...  
My friend said it was not bad... I believe her judging by the colour of the soup... 
Fruits as appetizer.... 
A piece of omelette fried with bitter gourd which is everyone's favourite... 
And the steamed fish came soon after.... 
The sauce is a bit too sweet for me... 
Definitely it was not as what I used to eat last time... 
Flesh was abundant... and the fish was fresh... no smell...
I would prefer more ginger on and around the fish, 
that would taste much better than just a few stripes.. 
Price was quite steep too... two dishes came to RM41 plus 2 bowls of rice...

  2. Omelette fried with bitter gourd is my favourite too. I can spot the thick flesh on the fish, looks tasty!

  5. The fish must have been very expensive then... Cannot imagine rice and bitter gourd egg to cost much...

  6. So funny your mention of the moustache man :D The steamed fish looks good but so little ginger. I also prefer a bit more and also some corriander leaves.

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
