Yum Yum Restaurant With My Food Gang

I TOLD MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS that I lost weight while in US even when there were abundant food laid on the table each day.  Yes, unbelievable but true though it does not make sense, right?  :)

During my absence, my girl bought a weighing scale online.  Ever since I got home, I weigh myself each morning and that is why I realize that I did not gain any weight at all..... alright, this happened two weeks ago and now two weeks later, I dare not say the same thing.  The moment I put my two legs on the machine, it showed a difference of 1 kg heavier than the last.... hmmmm... just in a matter of two weeks, I gained 1 kg!  No regrets, of course.. but must watch out from now on.....

How not to gain weight when I have foodie friends eating with me every now and then?  I miss them all when I was thousand of miles away.. and now I am back, food brought us together!  These dishes below were from Yum Yum restaurant along Persiaran Greenhill, Ipoh.  Most of the food here are Nyonya styled....

Lemongrass chicken...
A new dish for me to cook one of these days... 
Steamed Okra with Sambal Dried Prawns as toppings... 
Ju Hu Cha served with fresh lettuce for wrapping....
*Sengkuang or White Turnip*
Eggs with minced meat as toppings...
Fried eggplants...
For a moment, everyone thought it was French Fries... 
Total cost for this lunch was around RM70 plus with rice and drinks...
And lastly and not least, my Lunch gang for the day!

  3. I know why you did not gain any weight on the trip. Though you ate a lot, you hiked and walked and walked!! The Lemongrass chicken looks so yummy.

  6. Each time I visited Japan or China, I could easily loose 1-2 kgs after a week as I had to walk over 20,000 steps daily. This is something I hardly do in KL. I would drive my car even to buy grocery from the shop 0.25 km from home.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
