A Disappointment At Kuala Sepetang

OUT OF IPOH but into Taiping.  We stopped at Kuala Sepetang for lunch.  My kids had not been there before though I have been many times.  It was a weekend and to our surprise, the small fishing village was booming with people, tourists like us, I guess.  Wrong timing but no choice, they have to work from home during weekdays, only time off is weekend. 

Food was definitely not tasty at all during such peak hours.  We managed to get a place and ordered a few dishes.  But it was quite disappointing, the taste was not there and we even got shortchanged for the number of crabs.  We ordered 3 but when the dish was served, I counted and recounted, there were only 2 crabs cooked for us.  I sounded it to three servers and only the third one had a feedback for us.  He checked the bill, it was written three and was charged RM59.... and he told us to mention it at the cashier when we finished our food.
While waiting for the food, we looked at the murky waters...
And fishing boats....
The bustling crowd... got SOP in front... just scan and go... 
The mini size crabs... how not to go unnoticed...
Easily can see that there are not 3 here... 
The pomfret is fresh though... Rm36 for this...
Small shrimps deep fried but no tasty at all...
And some greens... nothing to shout about... 
Four dishes plus rice came to RM112...
The missing one crab were deducted RM20....
I guess we won't be going there again for a long long time...

  1. I guess everyone wants to go out after stay-at-home for about 4 months. I think better to avoid crowded places. Luckily you realized they served u two instead of 3 crabs and got rm20 deducted from the whole bill.

  3. RM20 a crab is cheap!!! I paid a fortune for mine that day, uncooked!!! The white pomfret is cheap too!

  4. ok la, at least they deducted RM20 for u on the missing crab. But it has spoil the reputation for being dishonest when serving dishes. Should not go there for the second time.

  5. Good thing you noticed and counted the crab and complained to the servers. Don't know whether it was intentional or unintentional. To avoid the crowd, it is better to go on weekdays but sometimes it is unavoidable.

  6. Actually, the food does not even look tasty. But good scenery while you ate.

  7. We have to audit our orders especially when the restaurant is busy, mistakes can happen. It is good they acknowledge the shortfall and compensated you. Hopefully you and your kids can visit at a better time.

  9. Good that you are observant to find out that there are only 2 crabs instead of 3 and they compensated you. That is the reason why my mom always insist hving homecooked food during cny for the same reason that quality will drop when it is crowded.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
