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.

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
