Ipoh Hainan Chicken Rice

IPOH... Back to where I belong after being away for few months.... 

Spent a few days trying to settle my "mind" back to the current time, have been waking up at odd hours during the night to watch TV and then dozing off again during the early dawn... During the day, I felt like a zombie and did not have much appetite.  My sister followed me back this time and we had each other to keep company with during these "jetlag" moments.  

Anyway, we become "normal" again and spent the first few days in Ipoh hunting food and cravings.  There is this place which I have not been before, near the Desserts street... oh dear, I forgot to see the actual name of the restaurant.  My bad.. I tried googling for it but to no avail.  Will try to pass by the shop again to get the name one of these days..... 
We had half a chicken for the three of us.... 
Glass chicken feet... direct translation from Cantonese.... 
Long time I did not eat these... 
Sweet, sourish and spicy due to the chillies...



And fried eggplants which was done perfectly... 
Tasted like banana fritters.. LOL... 
Nice lunch which cost around RM70 for the 3 of us... 
And the jet-lag faces then.... 
*Now I am back to normal*

  3. Maybe you can go google maps and walk around to see the shops, you may see the name. I dropped by your house once but nobody was home. LOL!!!

    I guess you had people taking care of your house while you were away, doing the cleaning and maintaining and everything. Otherwise, it would be such a chore coming back after being away for so so so long...and so many things waiting to be done.

  6. I believe it's Restoran Hainam in Jalan Mustapha al Bakri. Unmistakable red table cloth. A bit pricey but air conditioned. Recently renovated. Been there a few time.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
