Dinner For Six At Villas Osborne Street, Ipoh

DINING OUT....  This time we went to the Villas, an open air aluminium roofing type of stall along Jalan Osborne.  I brought along a big fish which I bought from an online fresh fish delivery website.  The fish is called Tiger Garoupa, 1 kilogram in weight, cost around RM60-70.  A few days earlier before we went to this place, we asked the boss whether he could steam the fish for us....and his answer was a positive... 

There were six of us for this dinner and we ordered these dishes before.... when the bill came, , my son's eyes expanded automatically... the whole set of dinner cost around RM70 plus only!  LOL... 

Alright, maybe the dishes were not the expensive type... these were what we ordered.... 

Steamed 3 types of eggs.... 
Roasted Pork with chives.... 
Another mixed vegetables with sambal....
Braised Pork belly
Claypot potato leaves with lots of lard.... 
And the fish I brought along.... 
He just charged the ingredients and labour...
That means only 5 dishes plus charges... 
Actually come to think of it now, it was not that cheap la... 
This dessert is not included.... 
Gula Melaka jelly... I think it cost around RM14... 
Anyway, it was a very heavy meal for the 6 of us... 
We surely will come back on another day for other dishes!

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
