Vegetarian Lunch At Vegan Life, Kampar.

Lately, we have been making a few trips to Kampar. The latest trip we made was to meet up with my sister-in-law and company who were travelling all the way from Seremban.
We timed our journey to meet up with them in Kampar.
We started at about 11.30 am and it was a smooth journey all the way.

In this way they journeyed at the command of the Lord
and stopped where he told them to,
then remained there as long as the Cloud stayed.
(Numbers 9:18, The Living Bible-TLB)
After Gopeng town, we saw some stalls on both sides of the road selling durians but we didn't stop for any.
They reached earlier than us. Altogether, there were 5 adults and 2 kids. 
They were hungry and they wanted to take lunch. My sister-in-law and company are vegetarians.
They knew where to go because they have been there before.
Nice decorations and ambiance.
This place is called Vegan Life. Jalan Hala Timah,
Taman Bandar Baru, Kampar.
My sister-in-law and her hubby did the ordering of food.
Tofu with enoki mushrooms, etc.
I am not sure about the ingredients of this dish.
Mixed veggie.
I like this - pumpkin & deep fried mushrooms.
Stir fried paku pakis

Making Another Trip To Kampar.

3 weeks ago, a relative asked for our help and we made another trip to Kampar. While hubby drove the car, I was busy snapping photos of whatever that attracted my attention.

We stopped here for dinner.

And this is the new building that replaced the old building.

If a man has a hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost,
what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others and
go out into the hills to search for the lost one?

A Visit To Ho Yan Hor Museum, Ipoh.

Last Tuesday afternoon I played tourist guide to my 2 Batu Gajah friends and introduced them to Concubine Lane, Ipoh. As I have promised, I took them to taste the silky smooth Tau Fu Fah which I have posted here recently. It was a good timing for us because by the time we were served the Tau Foo Fah, the place suddenly became crowded with customers.

After that we took a stroll along Concubine Lane. My friends will be coming back at a later date with their family members to visit the shops. When we came to the other end we saw that the Ho Yan Hor museum was open and my friends were also keen to visit. Entrance is free. The moment we walked through the door, we were greeted by 2 very friendly staffs (a lady and a young man). We were each given a tag to wear. We were told that the tag is to monitor that not more than 20 people were allowed upstairs at one time.

These trials will show that your faith is genuine.
It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -
though your faith is far more precious than mere gold.
So when your faith remains strong through many trials,
it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day
when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

Gui He Yuan Beef Noodles At Weng Oon Kopitiam, Ipoh.

Last Monday we woke up to a wet morning. It was raining heavily since the early morning. We have not been going for our early morning walking exercise for 2 weeks due to multiple reasons. Hopefully we will resume our walking exercise next week. Okay, back to last Monday morning. We waited for the rain to stop but it didn't and our tummies were growling away.

With a hungry tummy in a wet and cool morning, my thought was on what to eat. I told hubby it would be nice to go for the beef noodles he was telling me about the other day. When we drove out it was about 8.30 am and the rain has slowed down to a drizzle. When we reached the place, got ourselves a table and hubby told me to do ordering. Never, never tell a hungry person to order food!
I ordered a small bowl of mixed beef & white radish soup (ngau pak lam).
A small bowl of stewed chicken feet or claws with black mushrooms.
2 beef tendon balls and 10 tiny beef balls.
The beef balls were smaller than the size of ginkgo seeds.
2 deep fried wanton and 2 yam bean rolls (cut into halves).
2 bowls of plain noodles in soup.
I lost count of what I have ordered. When all the food were laid before us on the table, I was surprised at the amount of food I have ordered. Hubby looked at me as if to say, "are you sure you can finish all these food?" I just gave him a wide grin and start eating.
In my heart, I too doubted whether we could finish the food....but we did! It only looked like a lot but in actual fact, the quantity were in small portion. It was a full-filling and yummy-licious breakfast.
Total cost of breakfast for 2 people = MYR 24.00 (approx. 5.86 USD)
Found this posted on the wall.
Weng Oon Kopitiam, 30, Jalan Medan Ipoh 1E, Ipoh.
It is opposite to this Sun Sun Cafe.
This is the road leading to the shop. When we left, it was still drizzling lightly.
We took a slow drive home after our breakfast and we passed by this roundabout.
So God led them in a roundabout way
through the wilderness toward the Red Sea.
Thus the Israelites left Egypt like an army ready for battle.
