Mind Over Tempation In Li Yuan

It has been more than one month since my girl last came home... and what did she miss most about IPOH? It starts with "F" and it is a 4-letter word and ends with a "D"... Yes, all of you guessed correctly... Ipoh is just famous for its Food and nothing more than FOOD! She has a lot of food-lined-up during her four days stay back home.... From home cooked food to open air hawker food and to air condition outlets, Li Yuan Dim Sum is one of them in her mind...

How to order dim sum for two persons?  Started off with "ticking" what she wanted... and since I was still on "restriction mode" on food, I thought I could sit back like a "good girl" here and watched her enjoyed the food... hmmmm....
Our first time here in Li Yuan....
 Just opposite Sushi Zento in Festival Walk...
So...what did she order?  Here they are....
Mini Egg Tarts
Pan fried raddish... (took two small pieces when temptation won over me)
Took half of this... for self satisfaction... hahahaa...
Took one of these Mini Avacado with green tea dumpling.....
Last and not least....
Took half of portion of these Shanghai noodles!
Half of this and half of that made my stomach full already...
For two persons such as us, they were more than enough...

Well, I guess I didn't manage to be a Good Girl after all....
The mind is strong but the mouth is weak... LOL....

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 …
