Happy Lunch At Manchurian Restaurant, Aberdeen

DURING THE DAY... I normally meet up with Mary... by this time, she will be free from her chores in the guest house.  This is the time we have our ladies' tete-a-tete, sometimes at cafe for coffee and cakes. 

On this particular day, we did something different.  I managed to coax her to have a Chinese lunch with me!  Yes, I need lots of persuading and coaxing to invite her for she always tell me that she can cook whatever I want to eat!  See... she is so-so... what's the word for it??  LOL... Always so sweet and obliging!  She definitely can cook better, no doubt about that... but on this day, I wanted her to sit back and relax... and I am so glad that she finally did that! 

We went to the one and only Chinese restaurant nearby our place called Manchurian Restaurant, though the food is mainly Chinese dishes.  Since both of us are "small eaters", we ordered just a plate of seafood flat noodles that is similar to "wantan hor" in my hometown, Ipoh. 
This plate of flat noodles... oh my, it was a giant portion... 
Very generous with the big prawns and calamari too... 
Only the greens seems to be left out in the dish... 
I am very greedy... I could not resist this glutinous sticky rice... 
We managed to finish the whole bowl of this..
As for the noodles, the remaining portion went to Aaron's tummy!
The total cost came to around 18 pounds... 
Happy Smiles from us when the food arrived!  :)

  1. From the looks of the food, I must say Mary definitely cooks better dishes but it is very nice of you asking her to just relax and enjoy this treat.

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....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
