Dinner For Three At Hook Sang, Bukit Indah, Johor

MY LONGEST STAY IN JOHOR this time ever.... almost a month.  It is like being "alienated" from Ipoh, driving will take six hours and flight will take more than an hour.  But nowadays only Malindo is flying from JB to Ipoh, their prices are expensive ranging from RM200 over.  That means I have to stay here longer to make my money's worth.  LOL...

On evenings when the kitchen is closed, I go out with my kids for dinner nearby our place.  Most of the time when we eat out, it is normally on Fridays and weekends.  On normal days I will cook a simple meal for ourselves.  One of the food places I like to go is Hook Sang which is very near to our little nest. But lately I heard that the food prices have increased... two reasons... 1) our country's economy and 2) our neighbours who boost up the economy... Get what I mean?  LOL...
The place was quite crowded especially on Fridays... 
The four king beans....
Something juicy with this dish called Beer Ribs... 
With a dash of sesame seeds... yes, I like it.. soft bones and the sweet sauce.. 
Couldn't resist these prawn fritters in salted egg... but super expensive...
For just a few pieces, it cost RM30...
We also ordered a small portion of Hokkien noodles...
ahhh.. this one cannot be compared to another shop... 
The noodles were very rubbery... maybe not cooked enough... 

But this combination is fantastic!
We love this.... 
For the above dishes plus the prawns and hokkien noodles, 
the bill came to a whooping RM77... 
Ok, expensive or not, next time we better "minus" the prawns... LOL...

  1. Wow! How did you survive well for a month there without your Ipoh gangs around? I think Rm200+ for the air ticket is still affordable as the quality family bonding is priceless. JB has many good eating places but the prices are meant for Singaporeans.

    1. You are very right! Somehow we malaysians have to survive over there... instead of three meals, cut down to two or one and a half...:)

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...
