Dinner At Lawan Kuda, Supper At Old Town, Ipoh

FRIENDS FROM RAWANG CAME ALL THE WAY TO IPOH for the weekend... Seeing them means Food, not just for the three meals but Food for the whole day through...

For dinner we drove a forty minutes journey out of Ipoh to Lawan Kuda near Gopeng.  My friends wanted to try the food at Peng Yew aka "Friends" restaurant.  Thanks to Nancy, she made a reservation with the restaurant in the afternoon.  We thought the place would be crowded on a weekend but to our surprise, we were the first customers when we arrived around 6.00pm... Indeed we were the early diners and by the time we left, the place was still not full as yet. 

The food was so-so only according to my friend, maybe she was expecting something more flavourful but it turned out the dishes were something like "homecooked" and not as tasty as she expected them to be.  I have been there a couple of times so there is nothing to expect... LOL... Just eat and be merry!
Famous for their Sang Yue wine soup... 
Everyone has their share abundantly... 
I like this better... Fish with spring onions and ginger... 
Not so salty too... 
Someone ordered Celery though not everyone likes this dish... LOL... 
Stinky beans is fine with me... 
This is a Bonus... Salted Mantis.. 
Everyone likes this dish.. though we were not kids anymore... 
This dish is "misordered"... 
Maybe it came out last when most of us have nearly finished our rice... 
So half of it were "packeted" home... 
The night was still young when we left....
So we went to old town to have some "cheers!"
Didn't know that this building looks spectacular in the night.... 
Han Chin Pet Soo... 
And we ended up posing with it... 
With my girls.... 
Our gang for the night... 
Cheers!!

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

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
