Contribution From Yayasan Perak (Perak Foundation)

Windfall fell when one of my ex-colleagues dropped in to my office one fine afternoon... He has a glum look on his face and when I asked him what happened, he told me that his application has been rejected by the Yayasan Perak.  (Perak Foundation)  I was kind of baffled at what application that was and then he told me more details about this foundation and what the benefits are for us Perakians.

For those of us who are born in Perak, we are eligible for certain benefits under the foundation scheme.  When I log into their website, there are a few schemes that we can apply.  One of them which I am eligible for is the Dermasiswa Pendidikan (Bursary) for my girl.  Students who are entering Matriculation, Diploma, Undergrad and Postgraduates are eligible to get a certain sum from the Yayasan Perak.

There are certain criteria for eligibility, such as basic salary below RM3000, a list of Universities approved by the foundation and signed by your area State Assembly man.  No interviews are needed, just submit a form which can be downloaded at their website http://www.yayasanperak.com.my.

There is also a small sum for newborn babies and those who are in primary/secondary schools.  Well, I guess there is no harm trying, as long as we are Perakians, we are eligible to apply.  If I have known earlier, I would have applied for my sons as well.  Anyway, thanks to my ex-colleague, if he had not come by to my office, I would have missed this cheque below.
Contribution fund in aid of Bursary or "Donation-ship?"
Please do take note, if you are eligible, why not?
I am sure other states have this kind of foundation too...
Spread the word...

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…
