Travel With Food From Sg. Buloh To Malacca And Johor

BUSY BEE...

Many told me that I am busier now than the time I was in my working years.  Some of my friends are very cheeky, the first thing they ask is "Where in the world are you now?" or "Which land are you in now?"  I would like to stay put in IPOH but due to some circumstances, I need to be on the move, running here and there, moving on with life.  LOL...

Alright, having said that, I drove to Sg. Buloh with my siblings, stopover for a day to break the long journey and then we adjourned to Malacca for our lunch.  Using Waze, we managed to get to our lunch place in Auntie Lee after many turnings and it turned out to be kind of disappointing, at least to one of my guests who could not fancy the Peranakan food there.  Yes, indeed, the food turned out not like the other time we went... I wonder why....

Before we left for Malacca, we had lunch at one of the community clubs in Sg. Buloh, the food was very tasty, to our great delight!
Nice ambiance at the club... 

We ordered two "parcels" special on that day... 
Came with two slices of toasted bread to dip in... 
Never tried this before... 
Was told it was an Italian dish... Halibut with seafood and pasta sauce... 

As for me, I kept it safe with my Fried Koayteow in egg gravy... 


And then in Malacca... we had these... 
Plus the Fried Chicken... 
Food was so-so on that day..
Maybe due to our heavy breakfast in the morning, we did not enjoy our lunch that much..
Finally... we reached Johor in the late afternoon... 
Our friend managed to find his "comfort food" in this.... at last!
What a relief for him!  LOL...

The Comfort Food At TWT Ipoh

TIME FOR COMFORT FOOD AGAIN...

That ideally means going for a proper western meal, upon request from my BIL.  I was at wits end trying to think of where to go for a nice dinner, best option is to check with the computer, just key in western meals in Ipoh and presto!.. We finally settled for one which met with positive reviews from the food websites, TWT is the name.

TWT an abbreviation for Tea Warmer Treat, one of a few handful cafes in Ipoh which serves fine dining meals in a comfortable and nice ambiance along Medan Ipoh.  This is my first visit there, in fact, a first time for the four of us as well.  I was skeptical at first, not sure whether the food would meet with my BIL standard of his "comfort food".... and when the first dish was served, that is pumpkin soup or something like that, he whipped it up and within moments, he gave a very satisfactory grin after that!  Alright, passed!
This is for starters... 
Followed by Chicken Chop or something like that...
Grilled Chicken... 
Seafood spaghetti.... 
I ordered a Charcoal Burger... 
Yes, I shared it... half is good enough for me...
When the meal was over, we checked out the desserts by the counter... 
And chose this.... 
And this too... 
Shared among the four of us after our Big Meal... 
And that was our Comfort Dinner for the evening!

Indulging Ourselves Completely In Indulgence, Ipoh

INDULGING IN IPOH...

It has been several years or was it more... since I last ate in Indulgence, one of the few fine dining restaurants housed in a colonial bungalow along Jalan Raja Di Hilir.  I remember one time I brought my three hungry kids to the restaurant, we ended up having a second round of dinner at a food court after that.  Oh, that was many years ago, the three of them were in their teenage years or should I say puberty stage... LOL... Fine dining for them during that period was such a "waste" then, more complaints came after seeing the bill... LOL... And the best part is that my chubby son then insisted that he had to indulge again at the food court immediately after.  Well, that was ... er... more than 10 years ago. 

Now ten years later, I went to Indulgence again, this time not with the hungry kids but refined ladies who do not yearn for big portions.  We indulged ourselves with free starters, followed by the main meal and ended with desserts for each of us.  No sharing this time... let's just indulge ourselves with full satisfaction! 
A different Four this time, 
Not the same hungry Fours who came 10 years ago... 

At the entrance...
As starters.... 
Seafood pasta... 
Chicken Pasta...
Our four different orders... 
Not sure why we ended up ordering spaghetti and pasta.... 
Caramel ice cream from Haagan Diaz... 
Ice cream on grilled mango... 
On grilled banana... 
And my strawberry and cherries ice cream... 
Isn't that real Indulgence... 
Not sure of the price in total but I know each of us paid around RM55 each... 
LOL... 
And we agreed to "indulge" ourselves again... 
Perhaps in a different environment soon!
