Yam Yam Seafood Restaurant In Ipoh Garden South

When weekend comes, I will have to start thinking of where to go out for our  Sunday routine dinner with my mom and kids... I remember putting up in my FB that Ipoh is going to reach its limit of food, not much choices anymore and someone commented that I am "spoilt."  Hahahahaa... perhaps I am.. or perhaps Ipoh now is not as "famous" as in those days anymore... maybe all the good cooks have "migrated" to other states....

Coming back to the "spoilt" part, I was so excited when Elin told me there is a shop called Yam Yam in Ipoh Garden South which we never been to before.... Yam Yam.... cute name.. perhaps it should be Yum Yum? :)

I heard from Elin that it is always crowded after 7pm... so to beat the crowd, I went around 6pm.. and our food were served in less than 20 minutes... For the 5 of us, we ordered these dishes below...
steamed clams (lala) with ginger wine...
I would give them a Thumbs up cos the clams were very fresh and were well done..
meaning not tough and overcooked...   :)
the lady boss suggested that we try this chicken which comes with a bowl of sauce..
something like "salted chicken sauce" which suits my taste buds perfectly!
I think the chicken was baked cos it was not very oily...
their signature bean curd... kids will love this...
it was still "sizzling" when served....
I ordered spinach in soup to balance up the meal...
and Andy requested for his favourite dish....
and everyone ate with full satisfaction....
for the 5 dishes, rice and drinks, the bill came to RM72.00..
I think the bill is quite reasonable...
Will certainly go back for more choices....

Address: 9 Lebuh Raya
Ipoh Garden South,
31400 Ipoh.

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…
