Seven At Sam Po, Ipoh

My big kids are back for the long weekend! Time really flies, right? Every now and then we seem to be back together as a family but in actual fact, it is around one month since we last saw each other.  Moments like these are pretty rare nowadays, we have to adjust to each other vacation's and semester break.   Even if it is only a short four days of togetherness, there is never a dull moment when we are together...

Food brings the family closer.. hahahaa... when we talk about food, our eyes kind of "sparkle"... I guess it is in our genes or in their genes, whatever... we love eating outside (since yours truly rarely cooks but I DID ... er... once... )  hahahaa...   

Okay, back to my present post, one of our meals were taken in Sam Po in Ipoh Garden East.

Part of the "contingent" at Sam Po...

  5. All the food looks very delicious to me.....mmmm. I wish I know how to cook that brinjal dish. Looks really good. And for RM91? That's cheap! If I can get such good food at that price here, I think I will close down my kitchen and not cook at all.....haha.

    It's really wonderful to see that all your children can be back together every once in a while. Yes, must really treasure those times cos they won't last. It will get less once they have family of their own. Then you become busy again....haha. But good busyness :D Take care and hope you have a lovely week. I'm praying hard that you will retire early so that you will come here again soon :D

  15. I think 91 for 7 is very affordable too. Here it is at least 20 per pax for a sit down dinner like this. I like the beancurd and petola gourd dish.

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 …
