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.

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
