First Evening Spent At Ong Shun Restaurant, Johor

ON MY FIRST EVENING IN JOHOR, we had a late dinner, it was almost 8pm when we reached Ong Shun Restaurant at Jalan Abdul Samad, Kampung Bahru.  After a heavy lunch, the timing was just right.  The crowd was already in full blast but service was swift.  Within minutes our food were all laid before us.  There were five of us and we were all full to the brim with the scrumptious dishes....
The noodles were the best!  
I ended up taking most of them instead of rice... 

It is a mixture of meehoon and koayteow...that's the way I like it!
Steamed egg with Otak Otak...
Three cups chicken.... cooked with basil leaves among other ingredients...
Sweet potato leaves with fermented beancurd... 
Brussels with just garlic... lots of them...
Long time no eat clams.... but the flesh seems to have "shrunk"... 
A must-order Mantau...to go with the sweet and sour sauce...
Something like the crab type of sauce... very nice... 
Yes, that was about all... 
Price?  I was not the paymaster... so I didn't ask...
hehehee...
Anyway, it was a very full dinner for me...
Both Andy and I watched TV while waiting for digestion...
It was almost 2am catching up with the Law & Disorder...
That was my first night in JB!

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

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....

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...
