Running Errands On The 6th Day Of Chinese New Year

STARTED OFF THE DAY going to the petrol station and the regular attendant who is mute and dumb, came and helped me, wiped my front and back mirror, checked the engine oil and water and after giving the thumbs up, I gave him a red packet.  Not much and he reciprocated with two palms signifying Happy New Year.  I used the same gesture to wish him back, thumbs up and we drove off.  A nice start off for the day.... 

Then we adjourned to have breakfast in Keng Nam, a corner coffeeshop in town, famous for their curry noodles and Kaya glutinous rice.  However we did not order curry noodles but a plate of Chee Cheong Fun instead.  After breakfast I drove to the mechanic, did some alignment and balancing costing RM90.  Went to bank while waiting and the last stop is the mall, did some groceries and by the time we reached home, it was almost 1pm.  Time really passes very fast each day!

A dash of hot and sweet sauce... RM6
A set of toasted bread with half boiled eggs... 
Can't really see the other half boiled egg... 
Been drooling for this.... 
And while I was sitting there, the orders came non-stop for this dessert... 
Sticky rice with sweet Kaya... 

As for yesterday's dinner, I just boiled porridge and ate with these 2 dishes...
Lightly pan fried cod fish... 
I bought this for RM38... 
Long time I did not take so it justifies the pricing... LOL... 
And I added greens to the leftover dish of pork ribs and arrowhead... 
Now I am thinking what to cook for tonight...

  1. Yes, good for you! I also give tips to those attendants at the petrol station, just ask them to keep the change usually. Pity them, having to stand for hours in the heat...plus I hear they are not paid very much. So sad.

    Oooooo...I would love that sticky rice with kaya!!!

  6. I'm drooling at your pan-fried cod fish....haiz, RM38 for such a small piece (is that half a piece?) :D Love it lightly fried like this or steamed...used to buy at a time when it was still affordable.

  7. So kind of you to give a red packet to the attendant, I am sure his service and attitude was good too, that is why you gave the thumbs up! All the breakfast look good, the ccf, the toast with half boiled egg and the glutinous rice with kaya (which I have not tried before). Wow cod fish, yums!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
