Roosendaal Pie And Mash, Little Algebra And Ferment Boulangerie In Ipoh

CAFES VERSUS CAFES... and this is now a trend in Ipoh.  Never knew that there are so many new cafes opened this year... no doubt some may have closed during the pandemic and lockdown.  Hope business is picking up again after the last two years of slowing down.  Nowadays there are so many new cafes opened that sooner or later, they will be taking over the coffee shops!  That was what my friend said... Old adults will be seen in coffee shops and young adults in air con cafes... LOL.... 

I do not want to be left behind... LOL.... I visited a few cafes in the past few days....

Roosendaal Pie And Mash Cafe....
Lost for choices....
And in the end, I opted for a 
Chicken Pie which comes with mashed potate and gravy for RM20....
One afternoon we were here for quiche and pizza... 
Only the Latte picture turned out nice.... RM12
The food pictures turned out very blurry....
Ferment Boulangerie...
I can only remember the first word... Ferment...
They have cakes....
Bombolini and more cakes....
I ordered Onde Onde cake.... RM15
A bit too sweet for my liking....
Bombolini.... RM6.50
or Italian Donuts... my girl told me...
If she has not, I just called it Donut with Lemon filling... LOL...
Rest and chilling out there...
Then a friend came and joined in...
We ordered more food...
They are famous for their sourdough.....
And I tried a bit of their Fermented Passion Fruit...RM15
A bit too sourish for me... 
Yes, fermented, that is why....

As for the non-cafe styled.... these three cups of Latte were taken in an open area stall....
At the Batu Lancang market in Penang...
Each cup cost only RM1.50...
LOL....

  2. I love these sorts of pies, pastries and cakes! Is that fermented drink kombucha? I tried one before and it was very sour too.

  3. This food all looks even better than in a fancy restaraunt. Now I am wondering about the difference between a cafe' and a coffee shop. I think a cafe' has a lot more food variety.

  4. I tried onde onde cake once, disappointing! My girl did make some bombolini once. Not bad, quite nice. Yes, here too! Lots of these trendy cafes for the young, rich and famous. I have not been to most of them.

  5. Yes, many cafes mushrooming all over the town and residential areas. There are too many to visit them all. I have only been to a few. At my age, cannot afford to eat all the sweet items even though I used to enjoy the cakes.

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....

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

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
