A Foodie Trip In Search Of Gopeng Hill Assam Laksa & Beggars Chicken.

We have heard of this place up in the Gopeng Hill that serves Assam Laksa, Beggar's Chicken, grilled chicken, and etc. My friends and I were curious and decided to scout out this place. We had to pass through Gopeng town, then some kampungs (villages) to reach this place called Kg Pintu Padang. We have to drive up the narrow uphill road before we saw a little sign "Gopeng Hill Assam Laksa". We drove passed the gate and we were the first customers for that day.
A little place with nice scenery in the middle of a spacious hillside ground
This is the accommodation and the kitchen area, surrounded by greens, and fruit trees. 
It was 11:00 am and they were in the midst of their cooking.
Here, they serve various kinds of Hakka cuisine.
That morning, we saw a mother with her daughter and a helper at work in the kitchen.
The mother cutting beancurd sheet. According to her, she used to be a rubber tapper. She stopped work as a rubber tapper after her foot injury and now, she operates this hillside eatery.
These beancurd sheets are cut into smaller squares before deep frying.
These will be served together with the assam laksa.
On the right, her daughter was cooking something in the kuali.
She was cooking stewed sweet, sour and spicy pork trotter.
We didn't get to taste this because it was not fully cooked yet.
Since we didn't place any orders with them, we asked what was available for us.
We were told that they have extra Beggar's chicken or Herbal chicken.
The chicken was still hot and the daughter needs to wear cotton gloves to unwrap the outer layer of aluminium foil used for wrapping the chicken.
Firewood is used for cooking Herbal Chicken and Grilled Chicken.
"Smile! Ladies smile!
As usual, busy snapping photos while waiting for the food to be served.
This place was mentioned in the local newspaper, and many from far and near have visited this place.
They even have a price list and contact number.
Please call to place your food order.
We ordered 2 bowls of Assam Laksa to share.
Sweet and sourish Assam Laksa served with crispy beancurd sheet.
We also ordered some Hakka yong tau foo or stuffed tofu and some deep fried wantons.
While we were eating, more cars came in through the gate.
This is half the Herbal Chicken, sweet and tender.
We found free range chickens on the grounds.
And there are dogs to watch over the place.
"Oh no, she wants to take my photo"!
"I am shy, please go away."
Watch dogs

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Keep a close watch on all you do and think.

Stay true to what is right and

God will bless you and use you to help others.

(1 Timothy 4:16, The Living Bible-TLB)

First Morning After Returning From Johor Bahru

Thank God for safe journey for my friend and I. We woke up the next morning and a beautiful sunrise greeted us. I have been away for 10 days and I missed watching the sky for sunrises, my early morning walks and my garden.
Sunrise @ 7.05 am
I overslept. So, we decided to skip the morning walk.
Instead, we drove to town for breakfast.
Stewed sweet, sour & spicy pork ribs with wanton noodles and a bowl of wanton dumplings.
I like the fine wanton noodles.
And hubby loves the soup.
*     *     *     *     *
After being away, I was anxious to say hello to my plants.
Green shamrock or green oxalis
This is another pot of green shamrock,
Something has gone wrong with the leaves.
Anyone knows what is the cause?
Pink flowers of the Dwarf Mexican Petunia.
Cucumber plant.
Malabar Spinach 
Time to harvest the chilies.
Winged beans or the four angled beans.
My fig plants are fruiting.
Sunset Bells
During my absence, hubby has taken good care of my plants.

The following pictures are for joining Good Fences & Skywatch Friday.

God's Son shines out with God's glory,

and all that God's Son is and does marks him as God.

He regulates the universe by the mighty power of his command.

He is the one who died to cleanse us and clear our record of all sin,

and then sat down in highest honor beside the great God of heaven.

(Hebrews 1:3, The Living Bible-TLB)

Terengganu Curry Fish Noodles For Breakfast & Homeward Bound To Ipoh.

We woke up early and with all our things loaded into the car, we set off for breakfast. I was introduced to the Terengganu Curry Fish Noodles for breakfast for the first time before we started our drive home to Ipoh. Both of us ordered the curry noodle with steamed fish set.
Curry Noodles with tofu puff, a piece of fish cracker and curry paste. And instead of the usual beansprout, this was served with water spinach or kangkong.
2 steamed fishes with 2 different types of paste.
This was mistakenly brought to our table.
My friend informed the server and the mistake rectified.
Interior of the shop with some breakfast customers at 8.40 am.
Blinds to keep out the morning sun.
This is the only signboard.
By 9.40 am, we were at the toll gate.
It was a gloomy morning.
Looked like it was going to rain.
There was a light shower at about 10.15 am.
There was slight drizzle on and off for the next 2 hours.
Low clouds and mountain in front of us.
My friend was driving for the first part of the journey.
And I was busy with my mobile phone camera.
Then the drizzle started again.
We were notified by Waze app that there was a traffic congestion ahead of us. We were directed through some small town before being taken back to the highway again.
We passed by this accident and thank God for these kind hearted motorists who stopped to help the accident victim out from his car.

Save some by snatching them as from the very flames of hell itself.

And as for others, help them to find the Lord by being kind to them,

but be careful that you yourselves aren't pulled along into their sins.

Hate every trace of their sin while being merciful to them as sinners.

(Jude 1:23, The Living Bible-TLB)
