Pre CNY Dinner With Ex-Classmates At Kok Thai, Ipoh

PRE-CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION WITH MY EX-CLASSMATES...

Two of my ex-classmates from Kuala Lumpur came back to Ipoh for the weekend.  They gave us more than a week's notice to plan for their home coming dinner on the very day they arrived.

It was a Friday and a very cooling one indeed for it rained heavily while we were on the way to Kok Thai Restaurant.  The rain has been good to us, it did not pour when my friend came and fetched me.  But it was pouring dogs and cats just a few minutes after I got into the car.  Traffic was very heavy and it took us more than half an hour to reach the place.  And guess what.... the rain stopped when we reached the restaurant... totally stopped!  And the rain continued again, this time was less heavy... Really Thank God for we did not get wet at all... with our makeup, high heels and all.... LOL... Ladies!!

Before my other friends arrived, we made our order first and by the time they arrived, the food were ready to be served.  Good timing!  As usual, ladies have lots to catch up with one another.... our mouths were super busy, we can really multi-task when it comes to gathering like this...
Since there are only 7 of us, we ordered a S size to start off with...
Loe Sang as the Appetizer...
Followed by the Hoi Mei Poe aka Seafood variety in Claypot...
Vegetarian Assam Curry...
Pork ribs with ginger and mushrooms in Claypot...
Kai Lan with Yam... 
And among the dishes, this is still the Best of them all.... 
Just four dishes for the 7 of us...
We are small eaters ma... ahemmmm..
See... don't we look like small eaters?
To my lovely ladies, 
Gong Xi, Gong Xi... 
Wishing one another Good Health and Happiness...

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
