Malaysia Day And My Dashed Plans

Today is Malaysia Day, a day where we do not have to work... a day where I have planned to go to Tanjung Tualang with my two kids to eat "seafood".... but it didn't materialize because of my cough, cold and fever = flu.

I have planned two weeks before, either to go Tg Tualang or Taiping for our day trip... sigh... too bad... dashed plans...

Thank goodness my kids are not all too excited to go for "Eating trips" like I do...thus...they are not disappointed at all... yes, not at all as yours truly here......

Or perhaps... this morning they have their "dosage" already... they had "Hongkong Dim Sum" for brunch... and are having "Italian pasta" for dinner!

As for me, I am still waiting for my buns to come home... not so sad actually, I am watching the Li-Ning China Masters Badminton championship on Astro 811. The "always defeating" KKK/TBH will be on next!


  1. I also had to cancel my plans with friends for the weekend because of a bad sore throat. T___T
    Hope you get well soon! :)

  2. Kesian... Old engine, cannot run so fast and furious anymore. Slow down, relax...get a good rest...and the best place to do that - Sibu! Come! Come! LOL!!!

  3. laura: u too? speedy recovery!

    stp: sibu and ipoh.. best place for retirees.. hahaha...

  4. kathy: sigh...

    gta: thanks! i want to...

  5. hope you are all well to go to work on monday..

  6. Aiyoh... kesian betul. Mesti jaga body baik-baik tau?

    The keys to recovery:
    1. Eat more
    2. Drink more
    3. Sleep more

    Get well soon...

  7. So sad you are still sick, does the medicine help? Your kids need to be cooking for YOU now!!

  8. It is always a pity when plans get canceled due to sickness.


  9. Aw, that's too bad about having to cancel your plans. But, hey! Hong Kong dim sum is to die for! I loved the dim sum at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong last year. It's the best place for freshly made dim sum!!! Want to go back just for that!

  10. Aww.. Sorry to hear that.. Hope everything will be fine soon.. Take care!

  11. It's the weather dear...I'm down with flu, running nose and cough and so is my wife...just hope that we don't pass this to baby Chenya...Ryan has just recovered....anyway..wish you a speedy recovery...

  12. Oh kesian, still not getting better. Hope you have a speedy recovery!.... Take care, Claire.

  13. lena: dont remind me of work.. hahaha..

    pam: thanks.. i will go buy fruits.. no more in fridge! sigh..

    ginny: oh, they cook, might as well, buy from outside.. :)

    filip: yeah.. unexpectedly..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
