Surprise Birthday Dinner At STG Boutique Cafe, Ipoh

IT HAPPENED ON THE EVE OF MY BIRTHDAY...

I received a message in the afternoon, inviting me to join this lovely family for dinner at 7pm in the evening.  I cordially said Yes, I would love to go with them, not knowing where they were going actually.  But I did ask whether it is a formal or informal and my friend's reply was, "just be casual and I would be wearing Bermuda shorts".... LOL.. Sounds good to me, I like casual wear too!

It was drizzling that evening and on the way, we went to the railway station to pick up a lovely lady who was coming back from Kuala Lumpur.  Then we adjourned for our dinner at STG Boutique Cafe in old town. This is my second time to this place, the first time was a few years back if I am not mistaken.  Anyway, the ambience was beautiful and cozy...unfortunately I didn't go round taking pictures of the place.  Shy ma...
Christmas tree at the corner.... 
Managed to take this from the corner I was sitting... 
As for the food, this is Mine!
Orange Grilled Chicken... 
A better light and angle from another camera... 
Lamb Shank for the younger generation... 
Managed to take two dishes in one picture... 
One is Braised Duck (if not mistaken) and Tomyam meehoon with Fried Chicken.. 
Ahhh... another photo from another camera... 
A bit too bright... 
Then when everything was eaten up and the table cleared...
The staff came out singing...
Happy Birthday and holding these in their hands.... 
Sparkling "champagne"...LOL...
And The Beloved Desserts!!
MY SURPRISED EXPRESSION.. captured!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
