Birthday Dinner At STG, Ipoh

PRE CELEBRATION BIRTHDAY... started in Ipoh... it is not his actual day yet but since the three were back during the festive season, we might as well celebrate together.  We went to STG at Taman Chateau, a Tea House Cafe in a double storey bungalow turned cafe with a nice homely ambiance.  The ground floor was already full and reservations were being booked in advance and we were ushered to the first floor, up the wooden stairs, plank flooring to a very nice room which reminded me of my childhood days when I stayed in a shophouse in town. 

We browsed through the menu and ended up ordering one main dish for each of us followed by starters such as soup and escargots... Oh gosh, what are escargots?  I just ordered never realizing there are actually from the snail family!  Nevertheless, we ended up eating one each, they really looked like giant snails to me, stuffed with some cheese and spices and we have to "poke" the flesh out of their hard shells. 
Hot to our touch... that is the consolation... 
Wild mushroom soup and bisque soup.. something like lobster... 
A very funny taste and we did not really like it... 
However I like my pasta with scallops...
Very tasty... they suit my taste buds.. 
Andy's friend ordered Seafood Carbonara... 
My girl's Baked Salmon... very nicely done too.. 
Juicy and not dried... 
Aaron's Lamb Shank... 
Quite a big portion.. 
And come to think of it now, one dish is missing!
How come?
This picture was not "planned"... LOL.. 
 
These certainly are.... 
All in all, we had a nice time... 
Regardless of the bill that came right in the end... 
It cost over RM300... LOL!

  3. Pasta with scallops is my favourite too and not many restaurants would serve like this. You still look radiant and young like their siblings.

    I am also curious to visit this place & area too as I have fondest memories growing up & visiting my Tai Koo's house in Taman Chateau. Her hubby used to be a teacher at SMI and had sold their house long ago.

  4. Oooo...lamb shank looks good. Gee!!! After all this time, he's been abroad, I would think he would give western fare a miss while he is home. Lovely family photos! My favourite would be the one with you sitting down. Is that Fernie? Doesn't look like her! Maturing?

  5. Happy birthday to your son! I like all the main dishes. I think you can suck the flesh out from the snails.

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...
