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.

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
