Big Brother's Dinner At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

SIBLING CAME VISITING.... My brother and his wife came up to Ipoh for a couple of days to attend a special function.  First thing first... they must go to all their favourite food in Ipoh, regardless of their busyness with their business.  LOL... Food is the first in line...  For dinner, the three of us went for a nice dinner at Mun Choong Restaurant, one of the most popular restaurant that serves good quality food since the 1980s... Despite the pandemic and the lockdown, they are still going "strong" in their business.  Walk-in-s is kind of risky, it is better to call up and make reservation even during the day.   Since there were only three of us, we did not order much... just these few dishes and a bowl of soup individually served.  I couldn't find the picture of the soup, I guess I must be too hungry then...  Their Ginger Chicken is not to be missed....  Lots of ginger... yummy! Claypot fish.... Their signature dish.... Big Headed Prawns... And a small portion of frie

Dining IN At Morel Restaurant

TRYING OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME... and there might not be a second time for us... for a long while, I am sure!  LOL...  Since I am now back in Ipoh, my friends suggested going to Morel for western fine dining.  I had not heard of this place before and I am all IN to try out wherever they suggest.  The pandemic is still looming everywhere, so to avoid crowds, we booked the reservation for four at six pm in the evening.  This is the time with the least people.... right? Yes, we were the early birds.... menu came and there was not really a wide selection of choices to choose from.  I ended up taking fish... and now I have forgotten what type of fish, but I do remember the pricing very well.... LOL....  Formerly in SOHO area and now they shifted here to a bungalow at Chung Thye Phin Road....  The ambience is beautiful... I did not take many pictures though....  I couldn't remember the name of the soup already... Just look at the pictures only... ya!  I know this is salmon... We ordered t

"Washing Off My Dust" At WSF 33 Pinji Centrepoint, Ipoh

BACK IN IPOH HOME SWEET HOME.... or should I say, a dusty home?  LOL.... Oh, I must give some credit to my BFF who came few times to clean the house for me when I was away for six months.  Before I came home, she has mopped the basics.... and I am so grateful to her for doing that.  I don't like mopping in my own home less alone mopping in someone's house!  Yes, very grateful otherwise my house would be filled with one inch of dust everywhere.... And all I did was to give a more thorough clean up on the more important as soon as I reached home.  My bedroom!  Cleaned it properly so that I could have a nice comfortable sleep... the rest can wait till the next day... LOL.....  On that evening itself, my buddies came by to pick me up for dinner, so nice of them too... my fridge was practically empty and knowing my hunger, they took me to this new place they discovered recently.  Yes, every dish looks delish to me!  And I want to thank them for "washing dust" upon my arriv

First time I Was Taxed...

THERE WERE ONLY A FEW OF US when our bags were scanned at the customs check point before exiting the airport.  I think I have the most luggage, I mean two big giant ones compared to the others who were only having one.  Obviously I was the "outstanding" passenger with two big luggage and after scanning through, I was asked to open the two bags for checking.  Now the scanning machine is very high tech, the custom officer told me that she saw  a Michael Kors handbag inside my suitcase!  Oh no, I told her that it was an old handbag which is really true, I bought it a few years ago and left it in US. Anyway, they were quite friendly, I mean the custom officers, they were just doing their job.  What I am fascinated is that even the brand could be seen through the scanning machine.  That is really high tech! Alright, to cut the story short, I paid a tax of RM150 and was told that I can only purchase RM1000 only for one trip.  Anything above that, I would be taxed 10%.... another th

My flight was at 8pm and we reached the airport around 5pm.  It was just forty minutes drive away from our place to San Francisco airport, even if I had forgotten to take something, it won't be too late to make a detour.  LOL... Anyway, nothing was forgotten... I just left a piece of my "heart" behind, literally... LOL...  Actually I came back quite some time already, the conditions were still stringent then.  At the check-in counter, they still need to see my Home Quarantine approval letter; and PCR test certificate apart from the usual passport and ticket.  Thank God, all went smoothly..... and soon it was time to bade farewell to my love ones. Bye... mummy, daddy.... Unfortunately no.... he didn't bring along his passport! Ok, next time then....  Meanwhile... Mar-Mar got to go... Bye!
