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.

  5. Aloo Matar and palak panner look so delicious and it goes well with naan ! I hope you had a good family time at Zaitun. Mango lassi one of my favorite during summertime. It's very delicious and sumptuous. Having some family time with an amazing meal makes my heart so joyful.

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
