Farewell Lunch At Pusing Mun Choong Restaurant Ipoh

FAREWELL TO WORK AND WELCOME TO RETIRING.... 

One of my ex-colleagues have reached the maximum retirement age last month, she bade goodbye to those who are working and on the other hand, we retirees welcomed her to our senior club!  LOL...  I retired at the age of 55 (though I had not reached 55 then) and I have not miss a single day of not working.  What I miss is the breakfast moments I had with my former colleagues Other than that, I do not miss a single thing in the office except for the humans and the food.  LOL... 

This time round, we arranged to have the Farewell lunch for our loyal working friend at Mun Choong Public Restaurant in town.  One of the most prestigious restaurants at all times, the place was fully packed and we had to shout on top of our voices to be heard.  It is definitely not a good place for us ladies for our next gathering.  For our next gathering, we need a more quieter place so that the crowd won't be able to drown our voices... LOL...  
Our lunch started off with this appetizer... 
Iced crystal greens with roasted sesame sauce.... 
Crispy pork knuckle with mantou dumplings and sauce.... 
Very crispy indeed... 
Crispy fried cod fish... 
Yes, a good choice to order!
Steamed chicken with lots of ginger.... 
Kailan with yam.... 
Steamed stuffed beancurd... 
Another good choice from this restaurant... 
Alright... that is about all..... 
The lunch cost around RM450... 
And lots of pictures from the working and retirees....
Yes, we are looking forward to another gathering soon!!

  8. What a fabulous lunch. I retired six years ago and I miss my office and some of my colleagues, but not working! I'll be at a retirement party on Friday. I'm sure the food will be good, but not as good as this.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
