A Hot Fiery Session At Sawadee Thai, Ipoh

YEARNING FOR SOME THAI FOOD...

During my "absence".. my friends told me that they went to this Sawadee Thai Restaurant at Medan Ipoh to try some of their special dishes.  When I heard Thai food, first thing that came to my mind was the Tom Yum.  I had my share of that too when I was at London Old Street, but of course, the prices and the taste, please do not compare.  So I silently said to myself that once I am back in IPOH, I must "attack" the Thai food to my full satisfaction!

One fine evening, my friends came to fetch me and off we went to Sawadee Thai which I had not been before.  Looking forward to savoring the hot and sourish Tomyum.... but little did I know that it was so Fiery Hot that I could not even finish my own share of the soup!  How could it be?   Yes, I am not a Hot Stuff but so far, I normally takes at least two bowls of Tomyum without any rejection... But I admit Defeat on this particular soup.... *white flag*..... hmmmmm..
I call this ... Super Fiery Tomyum!
I wonder what they put in to make it so fiery HOT... 
It was still "burning" in my tummy when the dinner was over...
I better give this a skip the next time... 
Even one of my friends were feeling the same like I did... 
*Something to do with our age!*
Another sourish dish... I shouldn't have ordered both sourish dishes...
Wrong choice I made....
But on top of that, the mango kerabu would be great if there were more dishes... 
Since there were only three of us, we ordered these three dishes only... 
Thai Fish Pancakes....
This is the only dish which I could eat without fear of the cilipadi... 
And the total bill came to around RM70 for the three dishes...
So much for my cravings for Thai food... 
Next time I will stick to the steamed fish Thai style.. 
Safer for my tongue and all....
LOL....

  6. I also cannot take very hot and spicy food so I understand the burning sensation in the mouth and stomach, ouch!

  7. That spicy, huh? I heard that in Thailand it is like that. Super power hot. I don't think I can tahan also.

  8. So next time, must remember to request for lesser hotness for the tom yam. If it is too sour, then I better skip the mango kerabu. Go for milder dishes or else our tummy and tongue will suffer.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
