KL 2017 Tea Garden

I met up with another ex classmate after 36 years of losing contact. We were school mates from primary school to high school.


She and her husband brought me back to my old home town, Ayer Panas, Setapak. The above pool is a natural hot spring where the town name originates. The hot spring was once a public pool. Now it belongs to a residence complex. The public can still access the pool with a small fee, RM 1 for soaking your legs and RM 2 for taking a bath.


We also visited our schools. There is not much change to the primary and high school. However, we were amazed by the growth of our secondary schools as there is a 7 stories new block now.


After touring the schools, my ex classmate brought me to Tea Garden on Jalan Genting Klang for late lunch.


We had some dim sum here. Fried Taro Cake. (more…)

KL 2017 Fifth Day Chinese New Year Visitation

On the fifth day of Chinese Year New, my sister and family and I went back to my father’s place for Chinese New Year greetings (“Pai Nian”). After that we brought along my father to visit my second uncle from my late mother’s side of the family, i.e. my late mother’s late second sister’s family.

KL 2017 On Kee Ipoh Beansprout Chicken

We started our journey from Penang back to Kuala Lumpur about 3:30PM. The return journey was not as smooth as we encountered a lot of traffic and rain.


We detoured to Ipoh to have dinner. We stopped for On Kee beansprout Chicken. We were lucky to get a table quickly. The chicken also arrived quickly.


The beansprouts came after the chicken.


Most of us  had rice to go with the beansprout chicken as we already had a lot of noodles from the street food. However, the rice served here is just plain steamed rice and not rice cooked with chicken broth like what we had at Lou Wong. Hm, maybe they ran out of the chicken rice and quickly cooked some plain ones. The restaurant was very busy. (more…)

KL 2017 Lunch on Third Day of Chinese New Year

After having the laksa, we returned to my brother in law’s eldest sister place. He brought back some laksa for my nieces.


To our surprise, the maid at the eldest sister place already cooked lunch. The above is a nyonya dish which my brother in law’s eldest sister taught her maid to make.


It is called Acar Fish. This is the first time I tried this and I like it. The sauce is a little spicy and tangy, with a lot of ginger.
