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... 


  1. The lady makes me think of you - so easy to get along with! Noodles look good and the steamed fish probably explains the higher than usual bill - never cheap, if we opt for fish at a restaurant!

  2. Delicious dishes! Yeah, some people are very warm and friendly. They make you feel at ease and you feel as if you have known them for a very long time!

  3. So do you think you will keepin touch?

  4. Looks delicious especially the fish.

  5. The fish dish looks delicious! Did you exchange hp numbers with the chatty lady?

  6. The most famous food in Nibong Tebal is the Roast Pork Knuckles in a coffee shop that has the longest queue. So yummy and cheap.

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....

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...

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
