A Rainy Night Dinner At Restoran CJ Hotpot.

On Monday afternoon, after the Fah Sang Wu or Sweet Peanut Broth dessert, we drove back to my house for our friends/guests to take a rest. The venue for dinner was not yet decided and our other friends will be taking charge of it. When evening came, it was raining very heavily. We were glad that it rained to cool down the temperature.
After a good rest and having freshen up, we were ready to go out for our dinner. It was still raining when we drove out. 
 We were told to go to the night market's site.
 We were the first to arrive. By then the rain has slowed down to a drizzle.
Restoran CJ Hotpot, No. 19, Jalan Medan Ipoh 7,
Bandar Baru Medan, Ipoh.

 We requested for a table for 8 people. While waiting for the others to arrive, we went through the menu and made our orders.

Today is Saturday's Critters!
Frogs in a cage found in a restaurant.
One curious goat ....
Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Be sure you know the condition of your flocks,

give careful attention to your herds;

for riches do not endure forever,

and a crown is not secure for all generations/

When the hay is removed and new growth appears

and the grass from the hills is gathered in,

the lambs will provide you with clothing,

and the goats with the price of a field.

You will have plenty of goat's milk to feed your family

and to nourish your female servants.

(Proverbs 27:23-27, New International Version-NIV)

  12. The minute I saw this hot pot, my mouth began to water! It looks divine! The fish look exactly like baby barracudas! So is this like a food market or more of a restaurant? I bet you had the place mostly to yourselves because of the rain.

    1. This is a small restaurant. Initially, we were the 2nd table but after the rain stopped, there were about 5 tables occupied.

    1. Lol! Gosia, you are not the only one. I don't like frogs and I am also afraid of them. But this time, they were caged so I quickly took a snapshot and walked off.

    1. Maybe they are not well fed with quality food or grass. Possibly they have to look for their own food or grass.

  22. This meal looks fantastic, with some special dishes. From the name I'd have thought it's just another steamboat place.
