Farewell Lunch At Restaurant Pusing Public, Ipoh

We have been looking forward to this farewell lunch because one of our friends had retired. It could also be called a welcome lunch as half of us present are retirees. In a way, we are also welcoming another member into our pensioners' club or retirees' club! We waited for everyone to be available and the lunch was finally held last Friday in Restaurant Pusing Public in Ipoh new town.
That Friday started with a lovely sunrise - 6:50 am.
7:00 am
Sunrise reflected on the pond.
Hubby and I shared this plate of fried flat rice noodle (char koay teow). I only took a few mouthfuls because of the farewell/welcome lunch.
While I was watering the plants in my garden, I noticed this ginger flower.

Those of us who are retirees reached the restaurant early.
Someone brought some fruits for us to enjoy while waiting for the others.
The above is what is left from a full plate of fried crackers served by the restaurants.
First dish served - Ice or crystal vegetables salad as appetizers.
Deep fried cod fish.
Free range chicken steamed with blended ginger sauce.
Taro or yam cooked with kai lan vegetable.
Deep fried pork knuckle
There is no photo of the mantou (plain bun) accompanying the pork knuckle.
The pork knuckle and steamed bun (mantou) can be eaten with this sauce.
Steamed stuffed tofu with fish paste.
We had a great time enjoying the dishes and exchanging updates with one another around the table.
From these empty plates, you can see that we ladies have good appetite.
 Took some snapshots of the early birds while waiting for the others.
One more for the album for the year 2019.
Looking forward to the next meet up to celebrate the new year 2020.

After lunch, some of us went for a walk at one of  the shopping mall. We need to walk off some calories because we had a dinner date in the evening. We wanted something light and decided on a hot pot dinner to enjoy the coconut chicken soup at Top Grade Hot Pot Restaurant at Festival Walk, Ipoh.
Free flow ice-cream potong.
Hubby took one and it was too frozen hard to bite.
He requested for the ice cream to be cut into smaller pieces.
The pot of hot soup brought to the table, placed on a stove and waited for it to boil. First, we enjoy the soup, the chicken and coconut flesh before requesting for more soup to be added.
These are some add on: 2 types of green vegetables, tofu, taro or yam and rice vermicelli.
These should be enough for 6 people since we only wanted a light dinner.
I love this very tasty coconut chicken soup base.
Our dinner for 6 people costs us about about RM 123.

For Christ didn't send me to baptize, but to preach the Gospel;

and even my preaching sounds poor,

for I do not fill my sermons with profound words

and high-sounding ideas, for fear of diluting the mighty power

there is in the simple message of the cross of Christ.

(1 Corinthians 1:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
