Pre-Chinese New Year Gathering At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

EACH YEAR WE COLLEAGUES GATHER TOGETHER TO HAVE A "STOP WORK LUNCH" also known as SAU KOONG CHAU in Cantonese.... Though a few of us have retired, we still anticipate and look forward to seeing each other before the Chinese lunar year ends.  This year is no different, exactly one week from now is the Chinese New Year and before that happens, our group organized a get-together.

Thanks to the modern technology of group chatting in smart phones, our plan went on schedule and this year, we had our gathering at Mun Choong Restaurant just this afternoon.  Our theme for this year is RED!  *Ang Ang* as in Hokkien dialect.... and it was a really fun and enjoyable meal, meeting up with my ex-colleagues again for this auspicious season.  From the pictures below, our group seems to be getting smaller in size.... We miss one friend who couldn't make it at the last minute and we hope that she will be able to make it after the Chinese New Year.  Yes, we already planned ahead... our next meal will be in Yellow... LOL...

And now.. pictures of the food and my lovely friends in Red... all look so vibrant joyful....  ahemmm... 
Both of us were the early birds... so we captured a picture of us proving so... LOL... 
And the rest came soon after.... 
Our first dish... a combination of this and that in sweet plum sauce... 
And as we stood up and used the chopsticks to mix everything together,
we wished Good Wishes to ourselves... LOL... 
After our appetizer, the Marinated Pork Ribs is served... 
Steamed Ginger Chicken...
Kailan with yummy Yam...
hhhmmm... what shall I call this?
Lastly and not least, their signature Beancurd... 
THE ANG-ANG LADIES!
YES, EVERYTHING WAS GOOD... 
We ended our gathering wishing everyone...
SUN LEEN FAI LOK
*A HAPPY NEW YEAR*

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

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... 

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
