Dinner For Five At Zaitun Multi Cuisine Family Restaurant, Ipoh

DINNER TIME....

I thought I would still feel full after the heavy morning's breakfast and lunch but it did not seem so.  By 6pm, my stomach was feeling kind of "empty" inside.... definitely not due to my high metabolism rate but maybe due to the 40 minutes of walking exercise at my own home.  LOL... Using the iPad and my bluetooth speaker, I tuned in to the walking exercise on youtube and turned the volume on high.  Walk, walk, walk on my yoga mat for 40 minutes non stop... Sweat, come on, sweat... and after that, then I felt so good during dinner time!

My friends came to pick me up at 6.30pm and we went to old town to a newly-opened family restaurant called Zaitun, located on Market Street.  Zaitun means "olive" and it is actually a mixture of Arabic and Indian dishes.  But we were equally surprised there is pizzas too in the menu... When it comes to ordering, we definitely needed help.  The names in the menu looks "foreign" to us... and thanks to the friendly staff, we have these served in no time.
Bread Basket which consists of a variety of Naan... 
Garlic, cheese, sesame and what else, I have forgotten already...
This set cost RM30
Potatoes with green beans curry....
Spinach...
Curry chicken...
Of course the names of these dishes are more exotic written in the menu... 
I am using layman's term to name these... LOL... 
And mushroom pizza... which we can forgo the next round...
Three of us ordered Mango Lassie... RM10
Thick and sweet... 
Three dishes and a pizza with drinks all in cost around RM140
And the diners marking their presence at Zaitun's....

  1. The pizza looks delicious! You have a lot of determination to exercise for so long, and more room for food then!

  2. Good for you to exercise so long. Wish I was that motivated, because it's definitely something I need to do more of. That mango lassie looks interesting, and I know I`d love the Naan bread basket.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
