DSC_5412
Vanity Haus Cafe in Canning Garden Ipoh is run by a Dutch family who’s stayed in Ipoh for a long time.  The cafe is set in a midst of residential housing area that doesn’t stand out too much exteriorly but the delectable food is definitely worth a mention.  With “vanity” as its name, it actually sounds more like a beauty salon rather than a cafe – which is exactly the case – it’s a cafe cum salon/beauty house, and the full name is Vanity Haus Boutique Cafe & Spa Salon.

“Fish Viewing at Flower Port” is an insanely popular attraction being one of the Ten Classic Scenes of West Lake (花港觀魚, “huagan guanyu”).  The “Flower Port” is an enormous 4 acre park with peony gardens, bamboo paths and willow tress.  The Red Carp Pond   is the habitat of thousands of carps, glowing in gold and shimmering in orange.  While it is entertaining to watch the carps squeeze through each other, fighting for food; it is also pretty amusing to watch people adjust themselves, peeping over shoulders, standing on their toes, fighting for a view!      Continue reading

Huang Fan Er @ Hangzhou China

Huang Fan Er @ Hangzhou 3
Huang Fan er (皇饭儿) literally means “emperor’s meal” in Chinese and it is an alternative name for Wang Run Xing Restaurant (王润兴).   Hangzhou is a favorite place for emperors throughout different dynasties.  It is far away from the emperor’s palace; it is full of picturesque sceneries and it was fun for the emperors to disguise as a commoner to visit Hangzhou.  Naturally, there would be a lot of stories related to the emperor in Hangzhou, including food!     Continue reading

Because there were loads of cars parked outside the restaurant compared to the others so we guessed this is probably the famous one around.   Continue reading
