Food And Desserts In Gaharu, Gopeng Food Court And Lawan Kuda

SECOND ROUND...

On the way down from the hill, we stopped over at Gaharu Tea Valley to get some coffee packets.  One box with 10 packets of Gaharu coffee powder cost RM34... Wow... that is not cheap but then for coffee lovers, this is not an obstacle.  LOL.. We were served with Gaharu tea also known as Agarwood and on the way out, we saw Gaharu ice cream.  Ahhh... That, I could not resist and we ended up having one each despite our heavy tummies.
Yes, I am an ice cream lover for whatever flavour... 
This is new.... Gaharu Tea Plantation..
For those who want to visit, each person is charged RM10 for the ride up to the hill... 
No, we locals did not go up... wait till visitors come visiting... :)
Tortoise is one of their icons here... 
Then we adjourned to Gopeng food court to have our fix on the Chicken Porridge... 
The stall is a Brother and Sister team who are in the 70s... 
I was told that they do not talk much and it is not surprising if they do not answer you at all... 
I was quite hesitant to order... 
I started with "Uncle, I want one bowl of porridge, one portion enough, Uncle... "
To my surprise, he answered.. "Where do you sit?"
Then I pointed, "There, Uncle.... Thank you Uncle".... 
And that did the trick... 
I got my servings within some few minutes!  Phewww.... 
And this is really worth ordering... Only RM4.20 for the porridge and chicken!
And our trip ended with a Big Bowl of Fresh Cendol for RM2.30 in Lawan Kuda... 
Now I am wondering where my Cendol photo has gone to!
Too bad... I must come one more time to get hold of it... 
LOL...

    Ya, some stall owners can be quite arrogant, they don't answer you, so sometimes it leaves you wondering have they heard your orders LOL, maybe because business was too good

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
