Firefly From Sultan Azlan Shah Airport Ipoh

Time really flies... soon it was time for AA to fly back south after being in Ipoh for almost five days, the longest leave he has ever taken so far...  seriously..... hahahaa....

His flight was around 4.50pm and we left the house around 4pm, it only takes around 10-15 minutes to the Ipoh airport.... It has been many years since I last visited my hometown's airport because it does not cater to many places, just Medan (I think) and Singapore....
At the T-junction traffic light..
turn right to the airport...
 This Royalty banner captured my eyes.... 
the airport is named after our Perak Sultan...
due to the haze, the grass are yellowish... 
eh... under renovation too!
reminded me of Sibu airport...
Maybe it will be completed when I "fly" the next time..
perhaps in one month
The temporary entrance to the airport....
15 minutes before departure.....
till we meet again...

IN less than two hours my handphone rang...
AA has reached his destination... so fast!
Thank you Firefly!
I will fly in you one day!!


  1. Before you can say, "Bye", he has arrived.... and you have not reached home yet...

  2. hahahaa... before i could "warm" my seat at home..yeah!

  3. Hopefully Ipoh airport can fly us to more places in future. At least to Hong Kong or Taiwan, hoh?

  4. The last time I visit to the airport was back in year 2000

  5. Goodness! Now I remembered I landed there in 1973!! I was a kid.

  6. pam: yeah..we cannot be too demanding hor! hahaha...

    simpleperson: mine is way far further...

    twilight: I was there around in the 1980s...

  7. FireflyZ right? I can't think of any other airlines that go in to ipoh

  8. If in KL, we won't be home yet when a person arrives their destination coz KLIA is like so far from anywhere :)

  9. Yes, it is Firefly!!

    merryn: yeah, i have to drive more than 3 hours to reach KLIA!

  10. Here in Hawaii, there is an airport on each island. Yeah, it's a hassle to visit friends on other islands because of the expense of flying -- can't drive. There used to be a ferry, but the government got rid of it.

  11. last year, my girl bought a seat last minute and it was so expensive..

  12. Sibu airport. Still doing it, not completed it...but progress is good. They said September - hopefully it will be so.

    No Firefly from here and Firefly from Sibu before would fly to KLIA...and if ti Ipoh, would have to go all the way to Subang to catch the flight. Such a nuisance...

    I hope Air Asia will fly Sibu-Ipoh one day...

  13. gigi: yeah, i can understand how it is... flights are quite pricey...

    wenn: last minute are expensive...

    stp: i wish for that too! then we can fly here and there anytime we like and have good food.....hohoho...

  14. Are you coming to Sibu next month?
    Go Medan...since there is a direct flight from Ipoh.....I am goin back to Medan in Nov.

  15. Mery, no lar.. not next month.. no flight yet from ipoh to sibu.. hahha...

  16. so many airport are being renovated

  17. Your house is so near the airport. No need to rush and no jam!

  18. Great that now got flight to Ipoh. hehe..

  19. kathy: now everyone can fly...

    kitty: yeah..ipoh seldom have jam...

    cyn: but only to selective countries..

  20. Sound really fast and convenient to fly from Ipoh to Singapore via Firefly.

  21. Reach Singapore safe and sound in just less than 2 hours, wah same like travelling from Ipoh to KL.

  22. Soon, very soon air travel will be like taxi lah,, so easy and convenient,,,,but I don't think it connects Penang and Ipoh,kan?

    hey,looking at your son,am sure that you are a proud mother,,kudos and god bless you and the rest of the family..... I can imagine how tough it was for you to raise them up till this stage,once again, may god bless you with Good health and soon bless you with good daughter in laws and son in law..hahhaahah

  23. yan: yeah..but it is a propeller plane.. :)

    vicky: compared to bus, we have to pay triple and more.. :)

    eugene: u always leave me smiling after reading your comments... i m sure we as parents want to do the best for them as much as we can..

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
