The Lonely Crab At Crab House, Ipoh

MEETING UP...  Three of my friends from the Klang valley came up to Ipoh for a day trip.  Main purpose is to eat and buy till come what may! I only got to see them around 3pm cos I went up to Penang with my kids for the weekend.  We had to hurry back so that we could have dinner with my friends.  

By the time I saw them, my friends had already 3 meals in their tummies.  They went for the famous chicken koay teow in Pulau Sembilan shop, Hakka noodles along Jalan Iskandar Shah and a bit of this and that, endless food snacks in Ipoh.  Last destination was with me, asking me to book a table in The Crab House.  I made the reservation at 5.30pm without giving my name, not sure my fault or the restaurant's fault cos she never asked!  

Reached there at the exact timing and the staff kept asking me for name... alamak!  Obviously, the lady who spoke to me did not write anything and after some ding-dong from this table to that table, we finally had a place cos the next diners would be coming at 7.30pm.  That means we have to shoot off before that time.... and in the midst of ordering, we were only given ONE crab to be shared among the 5 of us!  Why only ONE miserable crab...... ???  We did not ask the fella, no point, it was served already... obviously, with one crab, we could vacate our seats earlier... if more crabs, we would be taking a longer time to enjoy and that would defeat their purpose.

Since my friends were not that hungry, we just ordered these..... 
Appetizing dish.... 
Okra with 4 angles beans plus sotong/squid... .
Sourish plus sweet... 
Next comes the beancurd... 
Impressive presentation.... 
Followed by fried rice... 
Not bad.. got the Wok Hei fragrance.... 
And lastly, the Lonely Crab... 
Quite big but definitely not enough for 5 people!
I just took a claw... fresh flesh... 
Left us craving for more...
But when we saw the bill, it was RM207....
Should we come back again?
One crab itself was around RM120,,,
Well.... what can we say..
After all, it is The Crab House...

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...
