Dim Sum Area And Desserts Corner, Ipoh

NO MATTER HOW HEAVY TRAFFIC IS, it did not deter us from going and joining in the crowd at the Dim Sum area aka Leong Sin Nam Street during the Chinese New Year period.  Along the same row and around the vicinity, there are around five to six shops selling Dim Sum and Ipoh is actually quite famous for the varieties.  The one we aimed for that morning was Yoke Fook Moon restaurant.  The only setback is the parking, it is like striking a lottery if one can get a parking nearby.

We took a chance on that morning, it was almost 10am and my son said maybe there might be a parking as we turned into the road leading to the Dim Sum street.  Well, to our amazement, his wishes came true, one car was reversing out!  Wahhhh... indeed we struck lottery... parking lottery, that is!  LOL.... First hurdle overcome... and the second one is finding a table for 7 of us is another problem.  We have to do what we don't like others to do to us... we stood behind those patrons who were about to finish... LOL.... NO choice, that is the only way to make them "uncomfortable" and moved on without lingering longer than usual.  Festive seasons is always like that.... in IPOH!
The youngsters quickly filled up the table with lots of "goodies"
and replenishing them every now and then...
Eating time is great... paying the bill is another different matter..
It came to a whooping RM240...
Never happened before in IPOH till this time round.. LOL...
Fantastic Crowd at that moment of time.... 
After our brunch fix, we went to town to buy some biscuits....
Stopped by a mini corner shop for some desserts... 
Cendol at its best!
Creamy and santanic... 
One for the album while waiting to be served....

  1. Dim sum breakfast is getting to be a very expensive breakfast even in Ipoh. I didn't ask how much was our dim sum breakfast on the 1st day of CNY because the bill was settled by the young lady.

  5. Wow! That was a lot of dim sum!

    Haha. In certain places, we are required to stand behind the persons where they almost finish so we could take their table. But most places are more civilised. We wait in queue and once a table is empty, we rush in and take it.

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....

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

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...
