Since its nearby my office, SS2 area is one of the frequent area that I often drop by for lunch especially Chow Yang area as I do not want to be stuck or hassle in finding carpark. Chow Yang area is easy easy to locate a parking space and walk to my favourite dining area just a few doors away not like the main area of SS2 you have to park far and walk to another side of your dining place. Restaurant Ho Ho Sek.

[updated 27/10/2015] – the Kopitiam had closed down – swap operator.

Chow Yang (1)

Well, this place caught my attention alot of times whenever I dine here, as this newly rebuild kopitiam to Restaurant Ho Ho Sek, I rate this place is a highclass kopitiam. It provides indoor dining with air condition and of course when it comes with air condition means you have to pay a bit more expensive drinks in this shop. One is because of the interior or the shop and seconds its along with air condition.

The hawker area are clean and all are park in order . .

Then my friend introduce me to this stall which is operate by her family members. Got a full time job then forgo to start a business in hawker which is kinda interesting. Their food is pretty unique in the market  . ..

Chow Yang (8)

Pork Ribs noodle’s is their signature and they only sell that in the stall.

There are 2 version of the noodle, either spicy or non spicy. For the non spicy, you can taste the aromatic soy mix with their special ingredient sauce that make it a bit sweeet in taste and my colleague love the one non spicy.

As I love my food spicy, I would definately recommend their Spicy Pork Ribs Noodle that for first few bites, you might not find the spiciness of it. As you eat more, you will find it will numb your tongue as it goes when the spiciness kicks in. Pork ribs were well braise till its quite soft and the taste of the gravy just soak it in. One of the set back that you cannot expect so much is their noodle, that it hardly will soak any flavour in as the texture is similiar to pan mee but their homemade version is more smooth.

This would be the third time I have dine here along with this stall and if you do come here, this is one of the recommended food. RM 6.50

When we walk around the place, my colleague saw this Siew Yuk is quite tempting, so we order a small plate to test it out. Turns out to be dry and it is not so crisp on the edge as I love it with a crack sound while biting. The only best is the chili sauce.

Chow Yang (4)

Next order Fried Koey Teow to share as observe in the coffee shop got alot people order it. When it was serve smells good and the texture and colour looks nice. The set back is it was not fried properly that I even ate a bite filled with chili. If the uncle fried a bit longer with ‘wok hei’ then it would be a perfect one. RM 6 comes with 2 big prawns.

Chow Yang (6)

Popiah taste not bad as it is a bit moist at the bottom and the prawn shrimp paste spread along bring up the taste.

Chow Yang (7)

This chee cheong fun version is something similiar I had in Ipoh and it is much better compare to this one.

Overall, not being biased I still love my bowl of Pork Ribs Noodle – Recommended as I know pork is pretty expensive and they do not give alot, it is understandable in those terms. The food that I try are pretty average  . .  Maybe will suits your taste bud as you can try it out. .

Usuallly during Chinese New Year, there are nothing much to do in the afternoon besides visiting friends and family houses.. . . .As this year in cinema there are quite alot of Chinese New Year Movie and took the opportunity to watch it  . .. . .

Homecoming-318x450
Genre: Comedy/ Family

Singaporean movie usually will be a must watch movie for me, with their language which they use and combination of action is seriously funny. This round Jack Neo had combine a few main cast including our local celebrity Ah Niu in the latest comedy flick, Homecoming.

The movie is about a our Chinese Tradition that during the Eve of Chinese New Year would be our reunion dinner and mentioning how important it is for all family members during this date, as with the modern young adults they do not like the tradition. This movie trying to educate back the importance of family bonding during the eve of the tradition.

This movie, you prepare to laugh from the start till the end. Seriously damm funny and highly recommended movie by me.

Another comedy flick for Chinese new year that talk about, Hong Kong very own neighbourhood lifestyle that they would want to preserve it that shows the harmony and how lifely and corporative it is for this neighbourhood.

Louis Khoo most of the time in the movie are quite ‘mou liew’ that team up with Donnie Yen, Chapman To, Angelababy which are quite my favourite actor to come up this movie ‘All’s Well Ends Well 2011’.

It was heavy rain that night, and it was hard to see even the car directly in front of me, chill and my stomach was growling and I was looking forward for the dinner later as the new menu came out with home cook food, it had been for months since I last tasted home cook and cant event remember how does it taste like as I only can remember what is my favorite dish that my mom can cook for me. House of Tang at Bangsar is one of the restaurant to hit onto.

[UPdate: no longer in operation since 2015]

Upon reaching the destination while I was looking for a spot and I got a highlight beam, on the parking spot trying to spot who was it? Trying hard to gaze at the number plate through the window under heavy downpour only realize it was Ken, as they cant get off the car without any umbrella.

After I park beside them, to my surprise, the staff from House of Tang brought 3 umbrellas for them on the opposite road to bring them into the restaurant; I have never thought that they do provide such services.

The restaurant certainly have the ambiance to host any of a family gathering with their concept build upon is to create home feel to ensure that if you cant enjoy at home, this is the place you feel warm and cozy with all your family members.

House of Tang holds firm that harmony and joy is the root and trunk for all happy families. Remembering our parents’ toil and sacrifices to bring us up is the way to preserve that root. Honoring their efforts with achievements in life is the way to grow that trunk. How do we honor them if we were unhealthy? We deeply understand this and here in House of Tang, we are assertive to dismiss the use of any artificial flavoring and MSG. We also go light on salt and sauces, hoping to give our patrons the healthiest feasts ever, just like how mom cooked, only more extravagant as what you can expect in the ‘Joyous Dinner’

Chinese New Year is just around the corner. Every Chinese is busy replanish stock for other family members and friends to visit them. Traffic and parking is a pain in the ass but another thing that draws alot of people to the mall is to take picture of the deco. The deco in most of the malls now are really putting alot of efford and investment in it. Its very impressive as part of the crowd drawing. Did not went to alot of malls but just went to the very main few ones.

The decoration of 1-Utama is the ‘Fatt Choy Mau’ Prosperity Cat.. When it was setting up, I always keep wonder will the hand move like what most restaurant display.

If you are talking about school holidays or public holiday and any part of the hawker center you visit in Penang is gonna be crazy. As I was back during that holiday period and my dad were asking me to go for tim sum, its very hard to drag my ass up but then just have to cause its been a while since last breakfast with them and my dad ask me to choose the location. Usually our usual Tim Sum area would be Tai Tong as the price and the food quality definitely our first choice but since I have blog on that place and I chose to come to this tim sum place opposite KDU which is quite famous too.

As I forgot the name of this place as me and my friends usually called it Opposite KDU. If any of you out there do know the name please let me know. Thanks`

During holiday season, this would be the kind of crowd you would expect. To get a table, you have to learn to take care of your territory when people are finishing their meal. It is because those people would either ask their mom which is 50-60 years old or their kids to pretend to sit down then act like it was like they came first and wave to their family members to faster come over. This happens to me and I politely tell them that I was there already and the auntie act like nothing happens till the family member were there and told them the same thing and act like noting happen too. That piss me off and I scold them! Then they just walk off.

In this period of time, there would be hardly a cart that will be pushing around, and there is too, but when it will take a few rounds to reach your place. To make things easier you can just take a tray and directly go to their counter, to pick and choose those tim sum you want, would be much faster compare you have to wait.



Did not take much of the Tim Sum because wasn’t really hungry.. Just woke up not long and my stomach engine have not warm up yet.

My dad saw a lot of people ordering ‘Fish Head Noodle’ and he went to order too. Not a very good choice of pick as the soup is tasteless and taste like cooking it with boiling water with the added on of vegetable, ‘fried chu yau cha’ and fried fish head.
My sis wanted to eat the ‘Wan Tan Mee with Char Siew’ not my choice of it also. Quite pale in taste, yet taste a bit weird too.
‘Honey Dew Sago’ which is quite okay but too much milk taste and the honeydew in it is not sweet yet could taste the sugar syrup taste more.

As for overall, the food there is so so but really cannot deny that, the food there is very very cheap or would be one of the cheapest. As for us the total bill came less than RM45 for 5 of us and I did saw a table of 10, they have collected and filled their table full with tim sum that only left a small place for their plates and drinks only and cam whore with it.

If you are looking for a cheap plate for tim sum, this would be the place to eat in but you have to be on par with their food quality.
