Hainanese Chicken Chop & Snacks Shopping

We wanted to eat Chinese rojak but found the shop closed. Before we could decide where to go next, the rain started to pour. Since we were there in front of Restoran Cathay, we ended up having lunch there. This place is known for their Hainanese Chicken Chop. This chicken chop dish consists of a deep fried chicken thigh with crispy batter, swimming in a tasty, ketchup sauce with potatoes, cucumber and tomato slices.

We ordered 2 plates of Hainanese Chicken Chop. Hubby enjoyed the chicken chop with a bowl of rice because he likes the sauce.

The rain stopped just before we finished our lunch.
We stopped in front of a biscuit shop. I went in to buy the above snacks.
Next, we stop at a Baking supplies shop to buy the above items.
I was curious and wanted to taste this Traditional Teochew Vege Mooncake. I bought one piece which costs RM10.00. I quite like the taste of this mooncake because it is savoury and not sweet.
Hubby wanted to try this coconut cookies.
Hubby prefers the above coconut cookies we bought when we were in Malacca.

That evening we had a simple home cooked dinner for 2 people.
Onion omelette.
We had leftover bak kut teh (herbal pork soup) so I cooked some noodle.
Bak kut teh with noodle, a simple yet satisfying dinner.

That morning, on our way home from our morning walk, I noticed this plant, known as Crinum asiaticum variegatum has flowered.
This was planted by the roadside.

The Yau Tet Shin Bazaar was built in 1961. It was named after a tin-mining tycoon named Yau Tet Shin who contributed to the development of Ipoh New Town.
This was the well-known Yau Tet Shin bazaar (image taken from the internet), which was demolished in 2001 after the Ipoh City Council found it unsafe. 
The Octagon, a 21 storey structure with residential, retail and commercial units was built on this site.


A house is built by wisdom and

becomes strong through good sense.

Through knowledge its rooms are filled

with all sorts of precious riches and valuables.

(Proverbs 24:3-4, New Living Translation-NLT)

  13. Bkt noodles is yummy! Rice is super nice when eaten with the gravy of chicken chop. Is the vege mooncake a vegetarian mooncake? If yes, without lard I would love it.

  14. The flower of the plant looks like spider lilies. Or did I see wrongly? Cos quite difficult to see exactly how the flowers look like. Or is it just me?

  20. My last Hainanese chick chop was in Ipoh's Durbar restaurant! Aihh all my good memories pre-Covid.

    Oh well guess with the escalating cost of land these days, they had to maximise and build a multi-story building in place of Yau Tet Shin market.
