What To Eat in Temoh

BACK TO HOME SWEET HOME...

First night in Ipoh had me turning and tossing in bed, not sure it was due to jet lag or too active to sleep.  Finally got up very early, before 6am... called up my early risers friends to go for Dim Sum.  Since it was still early, I took the opportunity to go to the "normally crowded restaurant" in town called Ming Court, it is always crowded whether it is weekdays, and worse during weekends and this time, we could easily find a table at this time of the day without standing behind any table.

Went home to rest awhile and at noon, I was out again, this time to Temoh, a 40 minutes drive away from Ipoh.  My friends suggested going to a restaurant in Temoh, I had not been there before so I readily agreed to what they have suggested.  The restaurant is on the main road, it is called Nam Hing Loong and it opens at 12 noon.  We ordered a few dishes to try, two bowls of rice to be shared by 4 of us.  Why?  On the way to Temoh, we saw a few durian stalls and that triggered my cravings for this king of the fruits.... so I need to save some of my stomach space for them!  LOL...

We ordered the Pork Knuckle, not German style but Temoh style!
Dipped with their special sauce of Basil leaves... very unique indeed... 
It is their secret recipe... 
Snakehead fish also known as Ikan Haruan... 
Fish soup with salted vegetables...
Paku Pakis aka Wild ferns...
I cannot remember how much exactly this meal cost, maybe around RM80...
The long awaited for... Durians!

Miss this very much!!
Ooppsss....  caught with my mouth full!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
