Dinner At Gopeng Antique Kopitiam, Gopeng.

Yesterday evening, hubby and I took a short drive to Gopeng to visit an old family friend. It has been about 2 months since we last visited her. We were discussing about where to go for dinner and our friend suggested a new place to us. We have been to this place before and I have even taken photographs and have blogged about it here. At that time, there was no activity and we didn't know what it will turn out to be. It actually turned out to be - Gopeng Antique Kopitiam!
Here we were at Gopeng Antique Kopitiam. We came by the Jalan Pasar way.
Business Hours: 10.30 am to 2.00 pm, 5 pm to 10.30 pm
Western cuisine hours: 5.30 pm to 11.00 pm.

It was 6.30 pm. We chose to sit under the open sky.
This place has 2 separate kitchens. The little window looks into the Western Kitchen.
And this is the Chinese cuisine/local fare kitchen.
Servers waiting at the kitchen window.

There are many sitting areas for the customers to choose.
Since we do not know what is good, we request for their recommendation.
The pleasant young man suggested this Yue Guang Ho (Moon Light Koay Teow). Must quickly mix the egg together with the noodle when it is still hot. MYR 6 (approx. 1.49 USD).
He also suggested Sambal Fried Lao Shu Fen.
MYR 6.50 (approx. 1.61 USD).
Both the noodles were recommended and they were good!
We saw this and we wanted to try this Mixed Meat Platter.
MYR 24.80 (approx. 6.14 USD). (L to R) Beef, chicken & mutton.
The mutton was a bit overcooked - could be an isolated case.
This was another recommended special.
MYR 8.00 (approx. 1.98 USD) 
Stewed duck with ginger and spring onion.
This dish comes with white rice. The duck was tender and flavourful.
We also ordered drinks: 1 plain water MYR 0.50 (approx. 0.12 USD)
1 cucumber plum MYR 3.80, 1 apple juice MYR 3.80 (approx. 0.94 USD)
Total cost of dinner MYR 53.40 (approx. 13.23 USD).
After our food orders were taken, I wasted no time and went about to snap photos of the place. There is another entrance on the other end of Jalan Pasar between Persatuan Wooi Ling and Chee Wan Restaurant.
Coming in from the other entrance, we get to see some wall paintings.
Pathway into the kopitiam/cafe.

Can you see the elastic shooter on his head?
Old tree trunk / driftwood.
More sitting area for customers. It is quieter here.
Customers can also choose to sit here.
Designed to look like a typical village home.
Another sitting area under open sky.
I will be sharing more snapshots from this kopitiam in my next post.
Thank God, it only started to drizzle just as we finished our dinner because we were sitting under open sky.  Thank you and we will definitely come again for more from their menu.
Time to send our friend home and then back to Ipoh for hubby and I.

Shopping For Dresses From Home.

I have been telling myself that I need to do some shopping but somehow I just couldn't get myself to dress up and drive out to the shopping complex. The only times I go out are on foodie trips with my friends or for other purposes but not shopping for clothes. I usually shop for clothes with friends having the same taste or on my own where I can take my time to choose and try on the clothes that I find comfortable.

The reason I am procrastinating my clothes shopping trip is because the days are so hot and by the time I get dressed up, I will be sweating away. And it is not fun driving and trying to find parking under the hot sun. So instead of going out I will stay indoors and occupy myself with things that I like to do and one of them is going online. 

Last week, I was online as usual and I came across this fashion website StyleWe. I think for the time being, I needn't worry about making trips to the shopping complex because I have found some beautiful dresses on this website. I browsed through the dresses on display at the website and most of the dresses are suitable for our hot weather. Here are some of the dresses which I like at https://www.stylewe.com/buy/elegant-prom-dresses.html.
These clothes look slim but I do not know whether they will look nice on me. But before I make any order from this website,  I can enjoy the Flash Sale discount of up to 80 % that starts at certain time of the day and do check out the new summer collection at StyleWe.com. I have also spotted a statement mentioning that any order over $60 will enjoy Free Shipping!
