Birthday Dinner At Lanna Thai, Ipoh

EX-CLASSMATES THIS TIME ROUND...

Her birthday is around the corner and one of my ex-classmates suggested celebrating an early round for the birthday girl.  We have to be considerate, right?  When the real day comes, she will be celebrating with her own family, hence we have to "book" her a few days before her real date.  This time my friend suggested going to Lanna Thai, they have not been here before except for yours truly.  I told them that the food plus the price has nothing to shout about but something to shout about is the ambience.  And after the meal, they agree with me....
I was the first one to reach there... so I took my time taking these pictures....
It was only 6.15pm when I arrived... 
We were supposed to meet at 6.30pm... 
So I have lots of time taking these shots right and left.... 
Front and Back.... 
Supposed to be a Thai restaurant....
But looks very chinese-sey... 
As for the dishes.. we have the stinky beans with prawns...
Steamed Fish Thai Style...
Braised Trotter without bones...
Pandan chicken...
Lemongrass chicken wings...
Tomyam clear soup... 
And the bill came to an astonishing RM226... 
Birthday girl ...
And the Famous Five.. 
Sorry, I mean ... the Foodie Five

  4. Decor looks rather Chinese - I guess that's in line with the season, Chinese New Year coming. Food also looks Chinese, not quite like Thai.

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
