Day Trip to Ipoh

Since it was a long weekend, we decided to make a day trip to Ipoh to visit some relatives and indulge ourselves with some dearly-missed Ipoh goodies. We went in 2 cars, together with Mah-mah, Yeh-yeh, Koo-koo, Nel koo-jeong and Hayley jie-jie.

We woke up unusually early at 6:00am. We were supposed to leave home at 6:30 but dilly-dallied until 7.00. Hayley jie-jie kept me occupied throughout our 2-hour journey there.

We reached Ipoh just in time for breakfast. We had dim sum at Foh San. It was our first time in their new and swanky outlet. I ate 3 fishballs and a piece of ma-lai-gou (a type of cake/kuih). That's it. I wasn't interested in all the other weird-looking stuffs.

After that, we visited some relatives. First stop was to Yee-Por's house. Then we popped over to Sook-Gung's house. This time, surprisingly, I was quite friendly and warmed up to everyone almost instantly.

After that, we had lunch in a seafood restaurant nearby. We also packed home some horhee (hor-fun with fish cake and fish balls) for dinner, together with some other goodies.

Yummy egg tarts and cream caramel

This was how I ate the tarts...

I ate only the crusts...


... and left the best part behind!

*Daddy and mummy shook their heads* and *grinned* cos that delicious custard (that I left behind) went into their tummies!

  2. Oooo...are you from Ipoh too? Wow, you are lucky to be able to eat at Foh San. We have been trying each time we go back to Ipoh but unsuccessful. It's always jam packed. You know what? Ashley's style of eating egg tart is just like Chloe. She only likes the crunchy part :D
