Jack In The Box In Nevada

On the very third day morning in Las Vegas, we set out for a day trip to Hoover Dam in Nevada and Lake Havasu in Arizona.  It was another long drive for us and I want to compliment my BIL for taking over the wheel throughout the long drive... he is really fantastic!

Before we set out, we dropped by at this fast food outlet... Jack In The Box...
Jack In The Box
(but I don't see any box nor Jack... )
I had this for my breakfast.. 
waffle pancake with beef and cheese!!
how many calories??   shhhhh.....
BIL brought us these from the convenience store next door...
 
Gosh... so so sweet!!!  I couldn't even finish one of them!
After our breakfast and filling up fuel....
it was back on the road again....a long straight stretch of road...
BIL drove endlessly.. he is really good actually...
no complaints of tiredness..
while the rest of us either dozed off 
or eating junk food in the car..
Along the way, he would tell us the "history" and "geography" of each place we pass...
But I think he would be very disappointed in me if he reads this..
Cos I couldn't remember much of what he had said...  LOL...

  2. It's called Jack in the Box, because originally, there was a toy box with a male puppet (Jack) popping out of the top of the box. This box was displayed on top of the roof next to the sign of the restaurant. Later, the owners decided to take all those boxes down, but keep the name.

    I loooove Krispy Kreme donuts. I wish we had a franchise here on Oahu. There is one on Maui, though.

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 …
