Crab House In Ipoh Garden East With WK & Family!

On the very evening I received a parcel from the Sibu icon, one special family all the way from Terengganu and Kuala Lumpur dropped by my house too! From Terengganu are parents of WK, in-laws of Kathy and grandparents to Joshua! So nice to meet them especially the Terengganu guests, they are so friendly and nice.. chatting with them is like we are old "kawan" (friends) for a long long time already.. oh, maybe I am in the same era with them, that is why!  LOL...

But I was a bit embarrassed because my house was in a mess and I didn't really had time to tidy up... If I have known earlier, I would quickly cleaned up a bit here and there.. LOL.. that taught me a lesson, I must tidy my house daily and not wait till weekends!

So excited I was with the guests that I forgotten where I put my car keys and all was fine after some walking up and down looking for them and finally finding them in the passenger seat behind!  After some "distribution of property"(you know, Kathy is always the generous donor!), we left for our dinner in Crab House... on our way there, I picked up Elin who was anxiously waiting... (sorry for the delay!)

Remember the lobster in the previous post?  It ended up here ....
WK requested it to be steamed...
and the chef did it this way... ginger with egg white...
garnished with spring onions...
first time for me tasting such a "giant" lobster!
Really good.... hmmmmm....
then we had this cute little thing wrapping up "village chicken"
this dish has to be ordered in advance... 
if you like to eat the "wrapper" and meat with gingko nuts, 
then this dish is not to be missed.. 
WK also requested for sea cucumbers with mushrooms...
Well, it is my favourite dish too!!
love the sea cucumber lots!
and to balance up the meal, a claypot of vegetables..
For such a succulent dinner...
Hope we meet again soon!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
