Our Foodie Outing To Gopeng And Batu Gajah

BACK WITH MY FOODIE FRIENDS after disappearing from Ipoh for so many days!  LOL...

Wasting no time, we went out for a few meals to catch up with one another... started in the morning to Gopeng town for their signature noodles called "Lai Fun" with varieties of fish paste, fried or steamed.  No pictures were taken, I wonder why now, perhaps too hungry then or busy chatting with one another.  After our breakfast, we went to search for the durian fella... he has shifted from the Big Tree (where he put his durians for sale last time) to another street in town.  He told us that the Tree was "cruelly decapitated" (I must have been watching too many gory movies to use that word) for no reason....

Back to my post, from the durian feast, we adjourned to Batu Gajah, wanting to see the new premium outlet but it was not ready as yet.  From there, we passed by Batu Gajah town and went down to take some murals, I guess my friend Nancy will show more of the murals in her post some time later... 

And after that, we went home.... and met up later in the evening for dinner at WSF 33 food court.  I forgot what WSF stands for.... my friend should know... LOL....

Yes, we just stood at the stall there to eat.... 
That is what durian lovers do.... LOL...
Not shy or embarrassed in any way....
And normally we get the best fruits this way!
In Batu Gajah town....
And me basking under the hot sun!!
As for our dinner....
Steamed fish with gravy.....
Steamed clams....
Curry Pork Ribs....
And blanched spinach....
I love the dishes in this food court...
Reasonable prices and not so oily...
Couldn't remember exactly how much...
Maybe around RM80 plus...

Lunch At Swee Garden, Nibong Tebal

AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS REST, we went back to Ipoh.  On the way back, we stopped for lunch at Nibong Tebal.  Using Waze and a couple of wrong turns, we managed to get to Swee Garden restaurant.  By then it was lunch time and the place was full with patrons.

We sat down with one lady and a young man, they were almost going to finish their meal.  In the midst of waiting, I struck up a conversation with the lady, starting with where they were from.... and to my amazement, the lady was so friendly or should I say, chatty.... she told us a lot about herself and the son who was sitting beside her.  The son was quiet but the mother was so dynamite speaking... LOL... I really never met such a lady before and it was like talking to old friends after just like fifteen minutes or so.  During that short time, I have know a lot about her.... not vice versa... anyway, all I can say is that she is the type of lady who makes you feel at home.... 

We opted for wanton noodles instead of rice....
Sweet potato leaves with less spicy sauce....
The steamed fish slices were nicely done...
I noticed that this dish was on the table, ordered by the lady earlier...
And it looked kind of nice... yes, it was a good choice...
And the bill came to around RM50 plus for the 3 dishes...

Smaller Portions Meals For Me

BACK TO MALAYSIAN FOOD.... after the short vacation in the Lion City...

First, we landed in Penang and I had a bout of stomach discomfort as soon as we landed.  The pain in my stomach became more intense as we reached and I had no choice but to visit one 24 hours GP after dinner.  After medication, I was feeling much better the next day.  I guess it must be due to too much rounds of food, either that... or perhaps I did not have my regular meals during the time in Singapore.  

The next day I took an early meal, warm oats, bread and went for porridge at Canton-I in Queensbay Mall.  I must be more careful with my intake, my stomach was still tender... other than that, I was fine. 
Hot porridge in Canton I...
Fish porridge actually....
Ordered some greens and a double boiled soup to go with the porridge.... 
All grins again...
I must eat moderately this time round....
That means small portions and more frequent meals....

A Good Sleep To Healthy Life

When it comes to living a better and healthier life, there are things you have to do and not do to transform your health from poor to great. There are many things you can do to ensure greater health for yourself. Living a healthier life has many advantages. You will feel better, look better, and just have an overall happy and healthier life for many years. 

Here are some healthy tips to have a happy lifestyle:

Exercise
Getting more exercise on a daily basis is a really good thing to make your life better. Getting outside and doing physical activities will allow you to have more energy and make you feel better overall. Get outside, take a walk, go for a jog, and even taking the dogs for a walk will help ensure you feel a lot better and live a healthier, happier life overall.
Managing your diet
Our diets have a huge effect on the way we live our lives. While healthy diets can help us lose weight, improve our skin and make us feel happier, forcing your diet could make you grumpy. Pushing yourself to eat food you dislike and downing caffeinated drinks all day is a quick way to becoming easily irritated. Make sure you’re managing your diet properly and include plenty of water to flush the body of toxins, and don’t force yourself into a certain diet regime if it’s making you unhappy. Even if your goal is to lose weight by cutting calories, you’re going to get grumpy and eventually binge on food because you’re not happy with your diet. In short, keep an eye on your diet so that it doesn’t make you grumpy.
Getting Enough Sleep
Sleep is surprisingly powerful when it comes to managing your irritation. More sleep means that you’re less fatigued, and less fatigue means you’re more likely to handle situations in a calm and relaxed manner by making good decisions. Making sure you get enough sleep every night will help you feel better overall. You will feel refreshed in the morning and will be able to get things done the way you need and want to. Sleep is a wonderful thing because it refreshes your body and gives you the energy you need to get through your day.
When it comes to buying quality sheets, there are some certain criteria to look into, such as the thread count, the material and the pricing that comes with them.  If you are going to look for one which fit the above requirements, you will going to love Supima sheets.  Supima is a superior trademarked brand which comes from the type of Pima cotton which is known for its strength, softness and comfort.

Four important qualities can be found in Supima cotton.
1.  Breathable - the fabric is so fine and lightweight making it the perfect option for those who loves to sleep warm and feeling cool at the same time.
2.  Durable - Supima sheets are twice as strong as the regular cotton, making it more resistant to tearing, pilling and fading.
3.  Softer - the silkier feel due to the fine weave in Supima sheets.
4.  Environmental Friendly - the cotton are naturally grown
 
The more tired we are, the harder it is to focus or make rational judgements.  People that are deprived of sleep are more likely to lash out at others and there's a good chance that it will negatively affect your life.  Having said that, we should get a very good bed to accommodate our body needs.  Bed might be just a three letter word but it is signified to being one of the most important daily item in our life.  What makes a bed, is it the high quality cooling memory foam or hybrid mattress that you have invested.  Whichever type you have bought, it might not be a good bed if you do not have the quality sheets to go with it. Thus, your bedsheet might be the reason why you 're not able to get quality sleep, so take a look at Supima for more details and reviews.

Korean Dinner At SBCD Singapore

LAST MEAL FOR THE DAY... finally... before we took a Grab ride back to our Ji Hotel.  

This is what holiday is about, going around as tourists and eating anytime, anywhere... 

We ended the day with Korean food at SBCD Tofu House.  Supposed to be famous for their beancurd but I don't remember ordering any for our dinner that night. In fact I was quite full from the day's food galore that I just took a bit of everything served on the table.  

Taken at where we were seated..
A bit of this and that were served...
We ordered two combo sets.... 
Each of us were served a fish... 
Korean seafood pancake which I like very much...
The pork belly too was sweet and savoury... 


And our set dinner for the evening came to around $120... 

Never Have I Ever...

I am not surprised that I would get infected with Covid virus again, I have myself to blame for I did not wear masks ever since I came back ...
