Dinner At My Kitchen Restaurant, Ipoh

In preparation for the Lunar New Year, I finally came out of my lazy mode to take down some the curtains for washing. I was thinking earlier whether I should engage a professional curtain cleaning service this year or DIY the curtain cleaning myself. In the end, I decided to DIM i.e. do it myself. All these years I have been doing all the cleaning by myself. Now, the spring cleaning job has to be spaced out into a few days as I am beginning to feel my age even though my mind still thinks I am young. Hahahaaa... 

Thanks to the hot and sunny weather, the curtains were dried and put up again in the same day.
That evening was our dine-out dinner with friends and this time our friend suggested My Kitchen Restaurant since we haven't been there for a long, long time.
4 lemon with tangerine peel warm drink (chan pi lemon) RM19.20
You can top up on the hot water.
Braised black fungus with pork belly (S size) RM18.80
Eggplant (brinjal), stinky beans with minced pork (S-size) RM19.80
Shrimp sauce deep fried chicken wings RM16.80
4 small portion rice RM4.80
Total cost of dinner + 6% service charge = RM84.15
Painting on the wall inside the restaurant.

Linking to Monday Mural.

Some of his disciples began talking about the beautiful stonework
of the Temple and the memorial decorations on the walls.
But Jesus said, "The time is coming when all these things
you are admiring will be knocked down,
and not one stone will be left on top of another;
all will become one vast heap of rubble."
"Master!" they exclaimed.
"When? And will there be any warning ahead of time?"
He replied, "Don't let anyone mislead you.
For many will come announcing themselves as the Messiah,
and saying, 'The time has come.' But don't believe them!"
(Luke 21:5-8, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. Interesting drink. Oh, yes. In Perth they celebrate Chinese New Year. I once nearly dropped my camera as a dragon came very close, LOL!
    Oh. We should be there now (and I am warned for when we can again ;-)...)

    Nice mural, your food is so different from ours!
    Ingo eats pork belly. I could never.

  4. We are keeping it simple and quiet this Chinese New Year so we have not bothered about the curtains and everything else. Raining a lot here, actually. First time seeing petai with minced pork, interesting dishes, this place!

    1. Ours will be simple too especially when we will not be expecting any visitors. CNY to us is just like any normal day except making some effort to cook and enjoy some nice food for the family.

  11. The chicken wings sure looked tasty Nancy. Every morning my wife & daughter start the day with a glass of water with lemon. I tried it but I didn't like it.

    1. No, I won't be making moon cakes. Moon cakes is too sweet for us. For Lunar New Year, we have the glutinous rice sticky cake. We will usually buy but I don't think I will buy this year. It is sweet too.

  17. Great post dear, so nice and interesting!

  18. I did one round of curtain washing last year and realized that it is such a lot of work! I usually hand them up immediately after they are washed because I don't have space to dry them. All the dishes for your evening dine-out look really delicious!

    1. Due to limited space, I have to divide the curtain washing into a few rounds. The food is not as good as before. The chicken wings is the best.

  24. You are SO lucky to eat out so much. I would love to have someone cook for me at least once a week. And your food always looks so good, too. That is a great mural inside the restaurant. Well worth the visit, I'm sure.
