My Two Best Chee Cheong Fun In Ipoh

I AM SITTING AT HOME QUIETLY... arranging my favourite album called Food and these pictures below were taken recently.  This post will be all on Chee Cheong Fun in Cantonese, won't be translating them in English for fear that they would sound a bit gross to some and might have some adverse effects on the CCF business.  LOL...

From my younger days, there were mobile vehicles selling food and most of them of them would be stationed at an area for a couple of minutes before moving on.  I grow up eating CCF bought from a back lane, the man with the four wheel bicycle would come regularly at a certain time in the afternoon.  Miss the good old days when everything was so easily accessible....

Nowadays, we have to drive around to look for food and one afternoon, we went all the way to Kanthan, more than half an hour from Ipoh to take our lunch.... and one of the choices sold there was this Chee Cheong Fun with the following garnishing....
This is CCF with the Oink Skin, Long Beans Curry... 
I did not touch that.... too "fattening" for me though I was salivating... 
This is called Anson CCF.. taken in Kampar Road Yee Lock.... 
To me, ok ok only nia... 
Recently I went to taste this CCF in Bercham Woong  Kee... 
I shared with my sister.... 
Not too bad but a bit too much for me to eat them all.... 
The best is still the one in Canning Garden corner shop, just opposite the market... 
Known for his grumpiness no doubt but nevertheless the business is still soaring... 
Another compatible CCF is found in Pasir Pinji 5... 
Ask for a number upon entering the premises and Do remember it... 
Otherwise will wait for hours if one does not remember...
Be prepared to wait at least half hour... 
So must remember to order L size for the CCF...
Otherwise not worth the Long Wait!
LOL....

  5. I love to eat ccf and will eat the long bean in curry ccf. The oink skins are dried ones so are not fatty so no harm eating them once in a while.

    2. If you have time you may consider reading the cholesterol myth book. Some scientific articles say dried oink skin does not contribute cholesterol to humans.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
