My Very First Authentic Thai Laksa In Taiping

On the second day of Chinese New Year, my wife, little Jordan and I traveled around 500km to get to our destination. Our journey took us around 5 hours because of a few "crawls" along the highway. It was a little bit tiring but...very rewarding. We arrived at my wife's hometown around 4.30p.m. Aww....the air there is so refreshing. It felt really good to be back in Taiping. We unloaded our luggages and then slumped on the sofa...gasping for air. Barely half an hour of rest, we were in the car again heading for Chinese New Year open house.

Open house means? Eating time~lar!

This was my very first Chinese New Year open house in Taiping. We paid my father-in-law's friend a visit. What made this open house so interesting is the fact that we got to eat Thailand food. A~ha! Wanna know why? My father-in-law's friend is actually a Thais. We call him Ah~Tan! Hmm....I wonder if this is part of his real name. We were generously served with plenty of delicious food. I must say that the food was amazingly salivating...

Our generous host-Ah~Tan!

The table which we dined was literally "full". We helped ourselves to a lot of flavorful dishes. We had fried chicken, curry chicken, extra "spicy" chicken (sorry that I don't know the exact name) and the highlight for the day was Thailand Laksa! This is the very first time I have ever tasted authentic Thai Laksa cooked by real Thais. I felt very privileged to be able to savour this home-made Laksa. Do you know that the "Laksa-hoon" was bought all the way at Alor Setar? This is because they couldn't get this original Laksa-hoon anywhere in Perak. No wonder the laksa had such a distinctive taste. :p

Curry chicken. A must have for all occasion right?

Fishy balls. Simply but toothsome.

Mixed vegetables. :)

Extra "spicy" chicken.

And...this is my favourite-Fried Chicken!

No meals is complete without this ultra sizzling hot chillies.

Now let's look at our authentic Thai Laksa!

This laksa-hoon came all the way from Alor Setar.

The other ingredients-bean sprouts, cucumber, long beans etc.

And of course...Laksa~lar!

Ladies and gentlemen...authentic Thai Laksa.

Here's a closer look at it. :)

After wolfing down a plate of rice and a bowl of laksa, I loiter around the house compound. Ah~Tan's house was beautifully decorated with Ang Pows and red "pineapples". I was told that the Chinese in Thailand really loves to decorate their homes too during Chinese New Year. I am sure the atmosphere over there is equally merry and "red-dy" huh!

Can you see the pineapples?

Photobucket
Aww....ang pows aplenty. :)

Ah~Tan's family and friends.

Well....do we enjoy ourselves? Of course. I believe I enjoyed it the most as it was my very first CNY open house in Taiping. Best of all I got to eat Authentic Thai Laksa. Hopefully I will be here again next year to eat more of these Thai cuisines. Thanks to Ah~Tan and his family for being so accommodating. Of course...thanks for all the food. :)

See you again next Chinese New Year. Huatt~ar! :)
