In Sun Lee How Fook Restaurant With My Date

My mom and I had a dinner date last evening... told her not to cook since there were only two of us... "Let's go out and get ourselves pampered!"(tarn har)  ... she readily agreed... but kept asking me where I was taking her while we were in the car but I kept her in suspense... hahahaa...

Knowing my mom, if I told her where we were going, she would have refused and asked for something simple elsewhere... I know it!  Mothers are mothers, they feel shy when their kids take them for a nice treat... and when we reached, she exclaimed, "Waah, Lee How Fook ah?"
My mom... enjoying her food... I think.. hahaha....
the restaurant "captain" recommended their
signature beancurd stuffed with fish fillings...
Kind of special.. 
Two pieces for each of us... 
my mom's favourite... Claypot mixed seafood...
Sea cucumbers, fish maw, scallops, mushrooms....
actually it is my favourite too.. 
that is why I ordered... heheehe....
the Herbal soup is complimentary....
Two dishes for the both of us...
Just nice cos we finished it up to the brim...
and the bill came to RM58.00...
Expensive or not.. 
It is worthwhile pampering ourselves once awhile...
*grin*

  5. Any time spent out with moms is worth more than money can buy! I can see the joy and delight on your mom's face. I'm sure she really enjoyed the time with you! You are such a good daughter, Claire! I miss my parents and looking forward to going back again to visit them. Take care and hope you have a most blessed Christmas and New Year!

  9. These two dishes look so good to me. I think 2 dishes for you and your mum were good enough. It is so good of you to pamper your mum and yourself this way.

  17. Sorry Bananaz need to ask a blunt question but hope to receive a sharp answer haha. Can we wish you Happy Dongzhi Festival? Do Christians celebrate Winter Winter Festival? What about rolling the tong yuen and other festivals like dumplings, moon cake festival obladi oblada? Bananaz has this impression sudah jadi angmoh lang liao have forgotten all the festivals or should not 'celebrate' or rejoice. Sorry wah bay tahan just very curious to know & not to be ignorant. Sorry Bananaz always WhyAskWhy can't help it. tQ

  18. No more time left that's why gotta WhyAskWhy in my earlier comment before Bananaz goes to hell in case doomsday is for real. Met up my old college mate the other day who is now a Christian & Bananaz was shocked when he said he does not celebrate Xmas. After hearing this Bananaz must be careful when wishing Christians friends and assocs 'Merry Xmas'.

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

UPHILL....

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…
