From Dark To Bright On A Lunch Date

MEETING UP....  once a week, we catch up with one another and last week we went to Communal Kitchen.  I never heard of this place until my friends suggested it and I am all for any place which is new in Ipoh.  There are so many new cafes in Ipoh that I really cannot catch up with them.  I did not know what to expect, I just went along and see what they had in store.... 

Everything is dark inside the cafe... 
Maybe with the black walls and all... 
Chicken wings platter for us to share... 
My friend ordered Smoked Duck Spaghetti Aglio Olio... 
Notice the plate is also dark in colour?
This is mine... for RM15... 
Nothing to shout about actually....
I don't know why I ordered this... 
And now I know why I don't like dark coloured plates... 
LOL...
After our lunch, we adjourned to a brighter kind of cafe to have our desserts....
I felt so much better here at the Etre... 
LOL...

  1. I don't like eating at dark places too....I'm skeptical of dark plates coz it might not be cleaned well and the dirt can go unnoticed.

  2. Looks very upscale and fancy. Here, restaurants are closing down because of Covid. Recommended to only eat take-out or outside, so lots of jobs lost.

  3. LOL. Dark and black is always evil to some people. I think big and white plates are the best for serving food.

    I love to drive around Ipoh because there's always parking space compared to KL.

  4. I also don't like walls painted black or with black wall papers. You order mushrooms olio aglio?

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
