Desserts Served In Mini Furniture

Coming back to my Sabay meal....
Though everyone was full of smiles after a hearty meal, the night was not actually over yet....
Someone suggested going for Desserts!
I was not familiar with the place... but I followed directions 
And ended in Bercham..... 
For Tau Foo Far.... (Beancurd dessert)
Not so sure about the road name... 
Opposite a padang and near to the CK shops...
And we were served....
Small tables... low chairs...
The Feeling was like being served in our own homes... 
And after all being said and eaten...
It was time to "log in" to our real homes....
*Goodnite*

Uncle CCF In Thean Chun Old Town, Ipoh

Uncle CCF still remembers me! 

It was so crowded, all tables and chairs were occupied... Uncle Chee Cheong Fun saw me and my girl standing by... and he called me, "hey, so long didn't see you come by here already!"  Oh.. was the uncle really talking to me?  "You remember me?"  He said.. "Aiyah, last time you used to go SMI to eat my CCF ma.... "  haahaaa.... yes, many  years ago my colleague and I used to go in by the side gate of St. Michael School and ordered his CCF.... cheaper ma...  So he still remembers though he is now no more selling inside the school!  
Then Uncle CCF allowed us to sit at his table... where he put his stuff....
He cleared half the section for me and my girl so that we could eat his CF there...
That is why I could capture this picture at this angle...   :)
Just look at the crowd... 
They just stood beside the tables... waiting for the patrons to finish their food... fast!
Can opt for the sidelane too...
But I think I still prefer to sit inside the shop... 
After we finished, I took a picture of Uncle CCF... 
My dry version of CCF....
With lots of dried prawns and fried onions....
And downed with a chilled Egg Custard... 
A meal that lasted me from morning till evening....

Virtual Office

I will be officially a retiree come this March 2015.  The first question that comes to people’s mind upon my retirement is “What type of business are you involved in?”  I gave them a big smile.. Me?  In business line?  Something in me must have portrayed that I am not really “retiring” once and for all, but only resigning from my office and venturing into some other business.  Oh well….. 

Now I am considering a few factors, perhaps I should invest into some business , something that will not tie me down 24/7 and at the same generate some monthly income?  How does that sound?  Yes, it might be possible, I might consider venturing if it brings about some monetary gains.  The more I think about it, the more it sounds possible especially now with this virtual office package.

From what I read here, Virtual Office from Servcorp is a service whereby we can run our business professionally without having to spend extra for the costs of a traditional office space.  Meaning to say, a virtual office is one place we can rely on so that we do not actually need to be in the office to get things done.  There are a few packages to suit our needs, among them are The Virtual Office Package, Communications Package, Address Package and Meetings Package.  Each of these packages comes with a prestigious CBD location, a local support team, technology that saves us time and money and flexible terms from 1 month.  

Sounds interesting to me especially I am often on the “move” and there is trained staff to handle the administrative issues.  Indeed there are many business people whom I am sure will be interested in having a virtual office and I am happy to share that Servcorp virtual office free trial for one month is ongoing now.  You can check out more details and information when you log in to their website.  As for me, I will also consider if there is any business that I can get involved in when I retire…….

Cell Group Pre-Christmas At Kampar Club

We had a pre-Christmas dinner this evening at Kampar Club along Tambun Road, just next to the Impiana Hotel.  I like the ambience there, nice environment, quiet with lots of ample space for parking.  The place is not noisy and crowded with patrons such as us and to our delight, we managed to have our dinner in a room too!
While waiting for the food, we gave our toast to one another...
Wishing Good Health and Happiness...
All of us need that for sure!
 Our first dish came after half hour..... 
Assam Fish with lots of greens....
Simply appetizing!
 Kai Lan with Yam... tasty!
 Black Pepper Venison
 Salted eggs pumpkin and bitter gourd... yummmsss!
 Spinach soup....
 And a Steamed Woo Soe Kai.... 
(Moustache Chicken?)
And some desserts on the house......
The bill came to RM230 plus rice and drinks for the 10 of us... 
Reasonable... not too bad... 
 My First Christmas Pressie! 
Thank you, Jennifer!
Here's our toast again.... 
Just a sip or two.... 
To activate the bloodstream...
And.....
That's IT....
CHEERS!!

The Old Town Of A Humble City, IPOH

On a bright Sunday morning, my girl and I strolled along the busy streets of old town, Ipoh... I heard that it has been very "happening" lately, also proven in some blogs and Facebook... Out of curiosity, we took a fifteen minutes drive to old town... Despite the hot sunny weather, we managed to cover some fair bit of the "What's Happening" in my humble city, Ipoh....
The Happening Place...

We walked around the vicinity of this area.... 
 
We had our brunch in Thean Chun... 
Packed with people of all ages... 
 Walking along the lane between Kong Heng and Thean Chun, 
we came upon The Farm....
Red Giant Tomatoes...
At one of the stores near Monroe Avenue...
Approaching the "marketplace" near Plan B....
Mostly handicraft items are for sale...
 
Bustling with people....
I guess they are only around on weekends?
The Arlene House.....
From the market, we adjourned to Concubine Lane....
Met up with Santarina.....
And stopped by here for awhile to get something done....
No More Boring Wall?
Interval time... Stone Painting....
Let's do a Ladybird!
Taking up the "challenge".....
After the difficult task was done, we made our way home....
Two hours was all we took...
Would like to go there once again.... 
*But remember to wear a hat or a cap this time round!*

I was looking forward to such an event and I wouldn't want to miss it surely!  Ok, I am a food glutton, I like to try a bit of this and that especially when it comes to real quality food prepared by a team of Big Chefs in line!

Let's take a look at what were in store for us.... oh, of course we were not served everything that is according to the endless menu ... we might end up sitting the whole night trying out all the food and gaining at least 2 inches on our waists!  We do not want that to happen, right? :)
And so..... here we are.... seated at our tables after all the food photgraphy was taken...
Very interesting for me.....
I get to experience what I have never been before....

But I know I kept taking their Apple sauce to go along..............
As for the desserts!
Tried each of everything....
All specially made by the Pastry Chef!
The Christmas Cake of course is not to be missed!
If not mistaken, this is the Christmas Stollen....
