|me in green....|
No recipe today but wanted to note down one of those memorable moments i had couple of weeks back. First, thanks to all my blogger friends who are dropping by to read this post. Me and my buddies..all of us were primary school mates but the time we got really close with one another was when we reached our secondary one.. have been close since then. That's more than 30 years of friendship! We had a reunion cum my birthday celebration back in our hometown, Ipoh few weeks ago. One was back from aust, one from singapore, one from the north and a few from the south. But this reunion wasnt a complete one, there were still 3 missing here due to work commitments. We booked an apartment and all of us sleptover for the night.

My buddies, fussy friends they really are..deciding what type of food they want to have for dinner..Japanesefood?..no no...one said, singapore's japanese food is much much more better. Western?..no no..someone said KL has got so many nice restaurants serving western cuisine, ipoh cannot beat..true true.. How about Korean BBQ? Big no no, someone said she wants to smell nice ..all the sizzling smoke and the steam from the BBQ will stink her, stink her hair, stink her clothes. Steamboat? same thing..so much smoke, will make her face oily! They asked me, what is nice in ipoh? i told them, 'hawker food '..so how? do we want to have hawker food and then celebrate my birthday in the food court? argh! save those for breakfast , please! Chinese food? seems like everyone like it. Yeah, Ipoh has got nice Chinese food..unfortunately the restaurant that we wanted to go to has been fully booked, even it's a month before. After checking a few, finally we managed to get a room in one of the chinese restaurants here..quite nice. clean and comes with private restroom and karaoke too!

One of my friend got expensive taste, she wanted to have " buddha jumps over the wall" dish. It is a chinese soup.. take long hours to prepare, cooked in superior stock and consists of abalone, fish maw, sea cucumber, shark fins, mushrooms, scallops, chicken, ham and is a very expensive dish, about RM2000 ( usd 670) just for that dish alone. Sorry, too expensive, i'm afraid we have got not enough money to pay the bill, all of us must really jump over the wall then ! So instead of " buddha jumps over the wall" , we ordered a mini version of buddha jumps over the wall, some restaurants named it as " tiger jumps over the wall" ..no abalones, no shark fins, no fish maw but still nice..acceptable and affordable.
