Seafood Platter & Noodles For Dinner At Wuhe Seafood, Ipoh

I came to know about Wuhe Seafood through a friend but I accidentally deleted her sharing from my hand phone. Recently, the same friend forwarded the same place to me again through whatsapp.

That was when I got interested and suggested this eatery at 36, Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh to my friends for our Friday dine-out dinner. 
What got us interested are the above seafood sets.
We ordered the above set which costs RM66 but we requested for only prawns, clams and scallops.
For the noodles, you can pick whatever you want from the above choices. For the noodle soup base, you can choose plain clear soup or tom yam soup.
Here are close ups of some of the food available.
More foodstuff and fresh coconuts in the refrigerator.
Price list.
Here is our steamed seafood platter in appetizing spicy sour sauce.
Prawns, scallops and clams (lala).
We found out from this friendly boss that the eatery has been operating for about 6 months and it took us this long for our 1st visit.
We were blessed with additional clams.
Every clam has flesh so there is no disappointment with empty shells.
For noodles, we ordered 1 bowl in clear soup and 2 bowls in tom yam soup. For the noodles, we picked grouper fish slices, fish balls, and some greens.
Garnishing the steamed seafood platter before serving.
We were one of the earlier customers. The place was quickly filled up after us.
The total bill for 6 people is RM135.60 (incl. 10% service charge).

A friend took this snapshot when he visited the Taiping zoo. I haven't been to the zoo for a long, long time.

They cast in metal a bull calf at Horeb and worshipped the statue they'd made.
They traded the Glory for a cheap piece of sculpture - a grass-chewing bull!
They forgot God, their very own Savior, who turned things around in Egypt,
Who created a world of wonders in the Land of Ham,
who gave that stunning performance at the Red Sea.
(Psalm 106:19-22, The Message-MSG)

Steamed Glutinous Rice Chicken (Loh Mai Kai) With Thick Curry Gravy

We resumed our morning walk after 3 days of rest because hubby was feeling a bit tired probably due to the hot weather.

We set out at about 6:45am.
Driving out for breakfast.
Breakfast at Kedai Kopi Yee Fatt, Jalan Kampar, Ipoh.
Full house at 7:55am on a weekday.
Business is getting back to normal.
After 2 times of disappointment, I finally get to order the glutinous rice with chicken. Once it was sold out and another time, it was not ready.
The loh mai kai has 2 pieces of bbq pork (char siew) on top of a piece of chicken.
 I requested for the thick curry gravy to be served separately.
I added more thick curry gravy as I ate.
The glutinous rice was well cooked.
Hubby ordered dry curry noodle with thick curry gravy.
We enjoyed this noodle with the thick curry gravy but some of my friends don't like it. This is the only place I will order dry curry noodle.
Flowers we passed by on our morning walk.
Deep pink ixora
Fragrant Rangoon Creeper or Chinese Honeysuckle flowers.

The Lord is good and glad to teach
the proper path to all who go astray;
he will teach the ways that are right and
best to those who humbly turn to him.
And when we obey him, every path he guides us on
is fragrant with his loving-kindness and his truth.
(Psalm 25:8-10, The Living Bible-TLB)

Lunch At Dong Tai Kopitiam,

We managed to get 4 ex-colleagues (retirees) together for lunch.

We went in one car and I was the driver for that day.
We were supposed to have Western lunch but found the place closed. Then someone suggested another place, found that place closed too but we found one kopitiam just opposite which was open.
Dong Tai Kopitiam
46 (Grd Flr) Jalan Foo Eng Lin, Jalan Pasir Puteh, Ipoh.
There is free parking available in front of the kopitiam. We were just in time to get a table for 4 people. Those that came after us have to wait to be seated because it was peak lunch hour.
Iced coffee O for a coffee lover. No, not me.
Ginkgo and barley sweet drink - 2 bowls.
Not too sweet, just nice for us.
We ordered 5 types of food for sharing.
Salted fish fried bihun.
Homemade dry noodle with fried pork lard.
Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah.
Steamed rice + fried chicken with spices.
Kaya + butter toast
Nyonya kuih - you will have to pick your choices at the counter.
Total cost for all the above food is RM63.
Thanks ladies. Looking forward to our next food outing.

No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be,
but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing:
Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,
I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize
for which God is calling us up to heaven
because of what Christ Jesus did for us.
(Philippians 3:13-14, The Living Bible-TLB)

Yam Rice & Peppery Soup, Durians & Mangosteen

The following photos were taken on our morning walk.

Sunrise at 7:09am.
Sunrise at 7:10am.
Sunrise at 7:23am.
Hubby knows I love yam rice. On this particular Wednesday, he took me to this food court called Pusat Makanan Enam Enam in Bercham.
The stall selling the yam rice is inside the food court.
I picked some fish and meat balls to be cooked in pepper soup. I also ordered a bowl of yam rice.
You can choose from the many varieties available.
There are many pieces of yam and other ingredients in the rice.
Hubby also ordered a bowl of yam rice.
For the soup, he picked pork belly, stomach and intestine to be cooked in pepper soup. They also have plain clear soup if you don't want the pepper soup. You can also pick vegetables for the soup.
I ordered a small plate of vegetable acar from the roast meat rice stall.
After lunch, we went to buy durians. I don't know the place or the name of the shop. All I know is that there were baskets full of durians placed in front of the 2 shops. The durians were sold at RM5, RM8, RM10 and onwards per kilo. This was about 3 weeks ago. That day, we bought around RM50 worth of durians. 
Upon reaching home, we opened all the durians. We ate all we want and packed the rest in containers to be place in the freezer to be enjoyed later. The chilled durians taste like durian ice creams.
I also bought about 3 kilos of mangosteens at RM7 per kilo.
Mangosteen is one of my favourite fruits. Mangosteen is a seasonal fruit and we only get to enjoy it once or twice a year at the same time as the durian season. Unfortunately, mangosteen is no longer a cheap fruit.
The fruit is white, soft and taste sweet. Inside the white flesh is a seed. Be careful not to get the stain from the skin onto your clothing. Not easy to remove the stubborn stain.

If he sows to please his own wrong desires,
he will be planting seeds of evil and
he will surely reap a harvest of spiritual decay and death;
but if he plants the good things of the Spirit,
he will reap the everlasting life that the Holy Spirit gives him.
(Galatians 6:8, The Living Bible-TLB)
