Teochew Porridge At Sin Hup Heng, Ipoh

PORRIDGE DAY...

My first meal of the day was around 11 plus in the morning.  We decided to go for porridge along Theatre Street, the shop is called Sin Hup Heng, Chaozhou porridge (Teochew).  I like the food here cos the dishes are served hot from the kitchen.  As usual, do not go during peak hours like 12-2pm, the place will be packed especially now during RMCO, the tables will be quite limited.  

For some places, it is quite difficult to find tables for 4 especially when it is just a shop lot.  Since there were 4 of us yesterday, the lady boss approached one lady to sit at another table for 3 and she was so nice to give up her table for us 4.  We ordered few dishes and I ended up taking nearly two bowls of sweet potato porridge. 
6 dishes in total....
Clams cooked with soybeans... 
Watercress vegetables in sambal sauce... 
Our favourite fish to go with porridge...
Salted Ikan Kembong...
Crispy fried pork... a bit on the salty side too....
Goes very well with porridge...
Omelette with big onions.... 
Braised beancurd... 
Controlled myself.... one and a half bowls I consumed.... 
And having fun with the "photographer"...
You take me, I take you.... 
Total cost... RM70 for the 4 of us... 
Porridge is not cheap nowadays... that is for sure.

  1. Clams are more expensive and you have fish too. Do they serve half bowl of congee?

  2. The fish looks hard because they have been deep fried.

  3. I like this kind of porridge, Teochew porridge where one can order a few dishes to go with the porridge. Not sure if I can get it here - the last time I had that was in 2009 at a shop opposite Low Yat in KL:

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....

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

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
