Breakfasts And Snacks

I like food that are spicy, sweet and sour because I find them appetizing. Here are some of the food that I have eaten recently.
 Vietnamese noodle.
 Assam Laksa
I can take this for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 
I can eat these curry puffs any time of the day. These are Doris curry puffs, now selling from a stall inside Restoran Yummy Food Garden, Hala Perusahaan Menglembu 3, Ipoh.
Rojak (fruit salad) with peanut sauce is another favourite snack of mine.
 First time tasting this rojak or fruit salad sold from this truck by the roadside, at the Kilat Club Pasir Puteh, Ipoh.
This truck is selling drinks.
There is a table and stools for us to sit under the shade.
I love Chendul but only those with thick palm syrup and coconut milk.
Where to go if you find yourself craving for Chendul in the late evening?
 You can find Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul in Ipoh Parade Mall without having to travel all the way to Penang for the Chendul.

Don't be impatient for the Lord to act!

Keep travelling steadily along his pathway and

in due season he will honor you with every blessing,

and you will see the wicked destroyed.

(Psalm 37:34, The Living Bible-TLB)

Walking Tour In Ipoh Old Town Part 2

About two weeks ago, I did a post on "Walking Tour In Ipoh Old Town". You can click here to go to the post if you are interested. Today's post is the continuation of the first post.
We are now at Jalan Bijeh Timah where the Hor Yan Hor museum and Han Chin Pet Soo museum are located. I like this painting on the side wall at one end of the Concubine Lane.
 As we were walking to our car, we passed by this corner lot which is the other end of Hor Yan Hor museum. There is a welcome sign to Ipoh Booth Cart. We were curious, so we went up the stairs. Here are the photos to show what we saw.
 Let us take the choo choo train back in time.
 Back to the 90's, 80's, 70's, even to the 60's!
 Back to 8th March, 2017 and time 10:10 am.
 Recently, we heard that Ipoh is going to have our own Hop-On Hop-Off bus service to take visitors to places of interest in Ipoh. Ipoh will be the 3rd city to introduce this service.
If you want a ride, hop onto the red wheel barrow. The horse is raring to go.
 Back to the time when we kids have no smart phones.
This was how we spent time playing with our friends.
One sporting guy acted out the scene for everyone to take snapshots.
 Student being disciplined by the school teacher. 
How many of you have experienced this?
There are booths with gift items and visitors are free to take pictures. 
 Handmade lanterns from can.
Wall lined with drink cans
Paper flowers made from folded paper.
If I am not mistaken, these could be pages from the old phone directory.
Celebrities from yesteryear.
Recycled plastic bottles for the common Money plant or Silver Vine.
 Visitors can enter or exit through this side door. 
 If you have missed the front door, you can still use this way to go up.
Take a swing to relive your childhood days. 
Bye! Come visit us again soon!
Here ends our walking tour in Ipoh old town for 2018.

Pride ends in destruction; humility ends in honor.

Teochew Porridge At Restoran Sin Hup Heng Chaozhou, Ipoh.

A friend had spoken of this restoran that serves Teochew porridge. One morning as we came out from the coffee shop where we had our breakfast of wanton noodles, I saw this restaurant and remembered what my friend had told me about the porridge. That afternoon we came back to the same area for the Teochew porridge. As usual we had to be early to avoid the lunch hour crowd.
Our lunch when we were here for the 1st time.
We had plain porridge, stewed cabbage, deep fried fish and salted pork belly.
Stewed cabbage
Deep fried "cooked fish"
Deep fried salted pork belly.
Plain rice porridge
I was seated next to the side door and I noticed this kumquat plant with fruits. I have a kumquat plant which is healthier than this one but no bearing any fruit at all.
*     *     *     *     *
We had the following dishes for lunch on our 2nd visit.
This round we ordered 2 deep fried "cooked fish".
Stewed cabbage
Braised duck
Restoran Sin Hup Heng Chaozhou, 91, Jalan Theatre, Taman Jubilee.
Opens Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm.
We are having grey sky and cool weather these days.
It has been raining almost everyday.

I remember the glorious miracles you did in days of long ago.

I reach out for you. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain.

(Psalm 143:5-6, The Living Bible-TLB)

Sunday's Mish Mash

Woke up early on a Sunday morning. For breakfast, we had wanton noodles, wanton dumplings and herbal duck soup in Jelapang and then we attended church worship service.
 A hearty breakfast on a cool Sunday morning.
 I saw a different kind of weed growing in my garden.
It has tiny pink flowers. Is this a weed or a herb?
 I have shared this picture before but this time we were seated where I could get a good snapshot of this wall painting in the coffee shop.
 We were at a phone shop to top up for my hand phone.
 I like this direction sign at a shopping mall.
Grab a bag to travel.
 My friend and I came to this small cake shop to get some egg tarts.
These were freshly baked from the oven.
 Pastry for the egg tarts.
One of the high rise building in Ipoh old town.

Here are my directions: Pray much for others;
plead for God's mercy upoh them;
give thanks for all He is going to do for them.
Pray in this way for kings and
all others who are in authority over us,
or as in places of high responsibility,
so that we can live in peace and quietness,
spending our time in godly living
and thinking much about the Lord.
(1 Timothy 2:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

Year-end Festive Shopping At Good Discounts

Christmas is only a week away and we have just about two weeks before we usher in the New Year 2019. This is the time of the year where malls, stores everywhere including online stores are having their grand festive sales. If you are looking for  cheap blouses online, this is the time to do your shopping.
Year-end sales is one of the best sales worth going to. Most brands will be launching their new collections for the New Year and all their previous season’s items will be put on sale to make way for the new items. Depending on where you are staying, sale time depends on the changing weather or seasons. Whatever the reasons for the sales, year-end sales is one to land the biggest discounts and offers for shoppers.
Whenever there is a grand sales, shoppers get excited and tend to buy excessively because of the good discounts. As smart shoppers, we need to check our budget so as not to buy what we cannot afford. If we are purchasing from online stores, we need to check the reviews by customers who have experienced dealings with the online stores. We need to know whether these online stores will honour their after sales services to their customers.

To save time and for our convenience, it is best to search for online stores where you can find the different varieties without having to hop from one store to store looking for different pieces of items to buy. The more you purchase, you get to enjoy more discounts, e.g. for every purchase over $59, you get to enjoy a 5% discount off your total purchase.
Online stores such as Chicgostyle offers cheap clothing at designer boutique quality. Here shoppers can order clothing and cheap comfortable shoes  that are trendy, of good quality and workmanship at good bargains. Get 70% off for your purchase and your purchase will arrive at your door step within a few business days.
