Christmas Gifts

Christmas is around the corner but I have not done any shopping as yet. Even the Christmas tree is not up, it is still lying in the store room. My family have other plans for Christmas, hope it will be a wonderful affair. (Please grant me annual leave.... )

 Yesterday I received a phone call from Pos Laju, he asked me where I was....  he has a parcel for me, I told him to deliver it to my office, he said he would.  Waited till 5pm, he didn't come, so I called him again, he said he would come to my house again at 5.30pm.  I waited till 6pm, he didn't come, I left for my dinner.  Half way through dinner, he called me saying he was in my house!  Oh dear... then I suggested that he wait for me in his office since I was around that area.  At around 7pm, I went to his office and he was there waiting for me... LOL... What a Wild Goose Chase... but at least I got the parcel... finally.....
Just For Me... Thank you, dears!
Elin and I received these Butterscotch Caramel and some TV snacks!
And I can't wait to try the caramel... haven't taste this before... 
Must go get a loaf of bread tomorrow!  LOL...

Then this morning I had a very fruitful breakfast with another blogger friend...(is there such a word?)
One of my favourite stalls in First Garden... 
This lasted me till dinner! 
I received this bag of pressies from her....
Most of all, I am so surprised to see this Christmas Money Box!
"MERRY CHRISTMAS CLAIRE"
What a wonderful gift!
Thank you for the yummy breakfast and gifts!

    Good luck with finishing everything for Christmas. I haven't started decorating yet either. My tree never goes up until Christmas Eve lol. I need to finish a bit of Christmas shopping too. All my daughter wants is a pair of snooki slippers for Christmas so I guess I should go and order them soon 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 …

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?

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…
