Dinner At Lawan Kuda And Supper In Gopeng

AS FOR DINNER, THE GROUP BECAME LARGER! Really excited when one of my friends suggested going to dinner at Lawan Kuda, the same one that we took pictures of the place during the day.  All of us had never been there before during the evening and we were looking forward to our dinner...
Yakkity-yak on one side....
And my other VIPs on this side...
Plus the heavy platter of rain, it became One Voice!  
For once, I didn't take any pictures of the food...
Thanks to Kathy and Nancy for providing me with 1-Food pictures! 
hahahahaa... 
This place is famous for their Talapia Fish... 
So we ordered two styles of cooking...
This is Thai sweet sour...
And this is Steamed with Black Beans... 
Both the fish were very fresh...
 
Someone caught me helping myself!
Peek-a-boo!!!
 For this set of dinner, it cost around RM140 plus... 
Not too bad I guess for the 10 of us... 

And the evening had not ended yet.... 
Someone mentioned Gopeng is famous for their "Lai Fun" noodles...
And in three cars, we went to "survey" them....
 Another round of Food!
The original Lai Fun from Gopeng...
 
Tried a little bit only nia... 
Just to satisfy the curiosity....
After "testing"... I noticed there were some "packaging" back...
That means the noodles must be kind of special in a way...
I wouldn't mind coming again if only I could remember the way...
But I am sure I can "bodek" someone to take me here again!
 After our dinner and so-called supper, everyone went "home" happily fulfilled...

Have Food Will Travel.. Gunong Rapat To First Garden

FROM THE CULTURAL VILLAGE, WE ADJOURNED FOR OUR LUNCH IN GUNONG RAPAT, just a very short distance away...  This shop is special for their varieties of noodles, fish paste, curry, soup and laksa!  It is located on the main road in Gunong Rapat, just opposite the main market....
It was super crowded when we arrived.... looked kind of discouraging but then after seeing the numerous types of fish paste at the entrance, we just had to get in by hook or by crook... hahahaa...
But then... thanks to Elin and her hubby,
 they managed to get a table for they arrived much earlier than us... 
And now for the orders...
There are lots more... just couldn't take them all.... 
Waited more than half an hour for our food to arrive... 
Eight bowls of noodles with the above and a bowl of stewed chicken feet, 
the bill came to around RM45....
Certainly they will see us again the next time... !  

All had not ended yet after our lunch in Gunong Rapat...
From there, we drove for another half hour to First Garden!
We went for another bout of food...
A long queue was at the scene but thanks to Nancy's hubby, 
we managed to get our "treasures" on the table pretty fast!
  Oh my goodness!!
Still warm and crispy!!
  Just look at this transparent piece of thing!
  hahahaha...
Thank you Nancy and hubby for the RP fest!
Indeed everything was good including the fresh lime juice!!
Just perfect on this hot sunny Sunday...
Phewww.. what a Feast!

A Yellow Sunday With My Beautiful Friends

A BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY FULL OF ACTIVITIES!

Immediately after church, I went to pick up my friends who were waiting for me in Polo Ground, Ipoh.  The road leading to Polo was quite jam by the time I reached the roundabout, nevertheless, it was quite interesting for I have never seen such an event before.... 
 It was the second time singing NegaraKu within one hour...  
An hour before the song was played in church and secondly on the Polo Ground...
Took a picture to commemorate the scene in the park...
And off we go ... to another program... 

Yes, Another event was taking place too in Ipoh...
When I heard the Kucing Family was coming *impromptu visit*, I was like *Oh My!*
Two different groups of friends...
And what did I do? 
I "compiled" them together... 2-in-1....
hahahaha...
I led the way...
We came to the cultural resort and village....
Let everyone enjoyed themselves....
A very lovely picture of my guest!
 Mother and Son....
Way to Go!!
My Handsome Young Guest!
Alright, seriously... I didn't know what I was doing...
A very Unintentional  Action!
This shot is more "normal" now...... 
Another scene with another group... 
hahahhaa.... 
The place was really crowded and the weather was hot....
After an hour or so, we quickly adjourned to a more interesting place....
YES...
FOOD!!!

Snakehead Fish And Fruits In Lawan Kuda, Gopeng

ALL WAS NOT LOST EVEN THOUGH the restaurant we went to earlier was not opened yet... Thanks to my two foodie friends, we still managed to get hold of some other options for our lunch.  There are two restaurants right on the main road in Lawan Kuda, both which I had not been to before and I was all ready to go to either one....  These restaurants are famous for their "Sang Yue"  *Ikan Haruan* aka Snakehead fish.
On the right is Restaurant Xin Qi Jia Fa....
On the left is Restaurant J.J. Fatt and we ended up going to this one..
There were only two tables occupied upon entering and in no time, 
our dishes were being served...
Steamed beancurd with minced meat...
One fish can be dished out to become two different styles....
Stirfry with ginger and spring onions....
Fresh and nice....
And the rest of the fish was whooped into a soup base....

The soup consists of chinese wine cooked with some herbs, red dates and wolfberries...
For the three of us, we had a generous share of the soup...
A very fleshy meal, the bill came to RM56 with rice and drinks.....
Even though our tummies were filled after a heartful meal, 
we did not go home empty-handed....
Another one of my favourite fruit season is on now!!

Evening Gowns For All Occasions

It was a night to remember... Initially we did not expect the turnout to be so many, we were kind of expecting just twenty to thirty of us, but to our amazement and delight, the number doubled as the ladies connected to each other through the social media.

Alright, what was I babbling about?  The so-called Gala night belonged to the ladies from the Convent school of the year 1977.  Thanks to the organizer and her committee members, they had successfully gathered as many as they could to make this event a night to remember!  We did not expect the response to be doubled, in fact there was some ongoing response even after the closing date.  The venue was not big enough to accommodate a hundred of us....

Well, the good news is, the next Gala night will be in five years time and a bigger venue will definitely in place to accommodate as many as possible.  Our theme for this year bash was Glam and Glitter and it was really fun to see so many dressing up to the theme. 
Talking about ladies', there are so many online websites that offer beautiful and affordable dresses. There are so many designs to choose from in fact, whatever theme is needed, they are all there, from sexy bridesmaid dresses to evening gowns, short or long, sweet colors from exquisite cuttings.


For weddings-to-come, one can choose their wedding gowns in these websites and that also includes modest bridesmaid gowns and not only that, they are affordable bridesmaid dresses for the young and the adults as well.  I particularly logged inside the website to browse through these beautiful dresses and have a few bookmarked for my future use!

New Discovery Cui Hu Jing At Lawan Kuda, Gopeng

A VERY INTERESTING TRIP THIS AFTERNOON! Just the night before, we "WhatsApp-ed" each other for today's plan and we decided to go to Gopeng... we just planned to have a nice lunch in Lawan Kuda, I have never been there before and where food is concerned, I am ALL for it!

Actually we planned to eat in Peng Yau, a restaurant in Lawan Kuda but it was not opened and when one of my friends mentioned that there is a restaurant near a pond, we went to search around the vicinity for it. We even asked one uncle where it was located and we finally found it right here!
 We took a picture of the road just in case next time we forget!
From this road, we could see the restaurant....
But firstly, we need to drive through this narrow road leading to the restaurant....
I dare not look actually.... there is no barrier on both sides of the road...
Any wrong turning, the car would be "swimming" in the pond!
Here is the name of the restaurant.... it is only opened during the evenings around 5pm....
The phone number is 011-26456371
But since we were here, we might as well look around and see what they have to offer...
Fish and prawns being reared here...
What these are... I am not sure....
One can even go "sampan-ing" in the pond.....
This is where the fish are reared...
And the young lad was so kind enough to take us for a "tour" around his pond...
From where I stood.... I dare not go any further... 
Cos I am no "swimmer!"
Even though my friend kept saying.. Come, Come... I wanna hold your hand.... 
Both of them went ahead.... 
I stayed put where I stood cos there is no barricade on both sides...
See what I mean???
That is the furthest I wanna be!
The planks wobbled as we walked along....
Somehow I managed to balance myself... 
*aikksss.. I dare not walk on the planks again!*
Back to firm foundation.....
And this is the place where one can have a romantic dinner.... 
Because once the sun sets, the scenery will be breathtaking!
But as it was noon when we went, there was no sun set to see as yet...
But we would love to go again when the sun is setting...
Best time will be around 5-6pm.....
 On the way out, we got down from the car to take some pictures....
See how narrow the road is???? 
Safer to walk, right???
Love the scenery here... got moutntain, got water.... 
 I would recommend this place for an evening dinner anytime!
Hope I can still remember how to come in... have to bring my friends with me if I don't!
It was indeed a Fruitful trip this afternoon...
We discovered a new place for our evening dinner and we will surely come here again...
THUMBS UP!!
