A Coastal Drive to Sitiawan And Lumut

WHEN I SUGGESTED GOING TO LUMUT, three ladies were All for the short trip.  Oh, the trip took more than an hour actually, it was not a really short trip.  We started off from Ipoh around 11am, dropping my girl back to her Uni on the way before proceeding on to Lumut and Sitiawan.  We reached Kampong Koh in Sitiawan around 1pm, just nice for our lunch.  It has been many years since my sister last visited Sitiawan, some development could be seen here and there around the town.

First of all, the food... We just dropped by to one of the open air restaurants called Yeh Loi Heong, if I am not mistaken...
We had meehoon... 
Sitiawan's famous Fish Mall soup... 
Steamed clams.... 
Crispy fried fish called "Sar Chui" in Cantonese....
And our wide grins during the food attack....
After our heavy lunch, we proceeded to Lumut Jetty....
 
Beautiful blue skies ahead... 
We shopped around there and bought some packets of Ikan Bilis among other stuff... 
One must not leave Lumut without a bowl of Cendol from James... 
Despite the heat, we must have a bowl each... 
Fresh green cendol, red beans among the creamy santan and ice.... 
With the sweetness in our mouths, we left for Ipoh...
The coastal journey took an hour plus...
It was almost 7pm when we reached home......

  1. The first dish looks so yummy! What is cendol, a vegetable? We do not have any here. I like your blouse with the shoulder cutout, they are very popular here.

  2. A day trip is fine. I love day trip. Somehow it is refreshing and good for mind; away from the city.

    Fish maw soup. I prefer clearer than those dark sticky soup.

    Cendol. Anytime for me.

  4. That fish maw soup looks very thick and tasty. Cendol is always the best thing to eat (besides ice cream) after a meal.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
