CNY Lunch And Sweet Temptations In Ipoh

NOT A GOOD IDEA to eat out during the festive season but we did it anyway.... LOL...

Reanaclaire's kitchen has been closed till further notice after the third day of Chinese New Year even though her kids were still around for the whole week.  We ate out almost each day, either in our relatives' houses or eatery outlets in Ipoh.  Two meals are sufficient, heavy breakfast in the morning, home snacks during the whole day and another light meal during dinner.   Many times we asked each other why we did not feel hungry even when dinner time approached.... Yes, we know the answer and yet we still wanna ask why!  Obviously our tummies worked non-stop due to the variety ofcookies, prawn crackers, BBQ pork jerky, carbonated drinks.... etc etc... all these "unhealthy" and yet so yummy delicacies during this festive season.  OK, just once a year affair so I guess it is totally fine to indulge into them....

Back to my post today....

Before they left Ipoh, I took them to Wong Koh Kee restaurant in old town, this shop has been around since the 1970s.... and still standing firm, I am glad to say.  However one word of advice, do not go during festive season, the food is somehow... er... slightly off from the normal days, I would say... Well, that is a common statement anyway....
So... we ordered these dishes.....
Wrong choice... clams aka Lala in Cantonese....
Why did I order this dish during CNY??
Lesson learned...
Another wrong choice... Steamed fish....
Ordering fish means higher bill on CNY...
LOL...
Only not wrong is the greens....
This is their signature dish... 
Watercress with roasted pork...
Whole bill with 3 dishes one soup came to RM82
Maybe it won't be so high if we go on a normal day....
Saved by the day are these cupcakes from Nancy Chong Bakery....
Costing RM3.50 each, we must order at least 10...
Mini sized ones... 
However we decide to stick to 1kg of butter cake the next round which cost around RM60 maybe?
Or perhaps "Reanaclaire's bakery" can help to do the pound cake....
Must look for a really nice recipe... 
Any recommendations, anyone?

  6. the price seems OK by KL standard. Over here the bill surely hit 3-figures. Anyway, that's a 'farewell' meal, so eat lavishly is OK.

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

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...
