Hock Kee Teochew Porridge, Medan Ipoh, Ipoh

*TEOCHEW NANG CHIAK MUIH*  (Teochew clan eat porridge)

I LOVE porridge, I grow up eating porridge, whether it is plain or cooked with chicken, pork or fish... or even frog porridge... in fact my whole family loves porridge, the reason must be from my mom who frequently cooked porridge for us when we were young.  Another main reason is that my late father is from the Teochew clan and from there, maybe my mom cook porridge very often...

My kids love porridge too.. especially cooked with peanuts and roasted pork bones.  They can eat a big portion without realizing how much they have taken... LOL...  It is no more a "poor man's meal" eating porridge nowadays, in fact eating porridge outside can be more expensive than eating a plate of "chap farn" (mixed rice) 

One evening we came to Hock Kee Teochew Porridge restaurant at Medan Ipoh... first time going there and we just ordered three dishes to go with our three bowls of white porridge. 
Teochew styled porridge... plain white soft rice.... 

Claypot Beancurd with raw egg.... 
Oh, eggs with bitter gourd... 
And minced meat with salted fish... 
Long time no take!
Three dishes with three bowls of porridge cost around RM40.
Portions are quite big so it is more than enough for us... 
Nice?

  4. Looks so good and comforting! It must be great if you are sick, too. Go ahead and laugh at me, but I am unsure just what porridge IS. Here, we have oatmeal, and we eat quite a lot. But this does not look like oats. What grain is it? So you cook it for five minutes like oatmeal?

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....

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
