Food Glutton

Chinese New Year is just a few days away. For the past one month, I have been busy running up and down like a mother hen! LOL... As a mother to three grown up kids, I have to start preparing my menu, what to cook for them, what to buy, what to bake.. Okay, I am exaggerating here a bit, I do not cook nor bake much, just a few dishes and bake some simple cookies, nothing to shout about much here.  But just by looking at the dishes below, they were prepared by my In-Laws, I really have to pay "tribute" to them.  As a daughter-in-law, I just have to go back and savour all the glorious food!!  How blessed I am, right?
Yes, my In-Laws are really great chefs!
That is why I love to do the "Washing-up!" after the glorious meal!
Loe Sang as the Appetizer and the Starter before the meal.. 

After the reunion meal, the desserts are next!  My sister-in-law loves baking cakes and each year she will prepare a few choices of cakes for us to savour!  Blueberry cheese cakes, carrot cakes, lemon cheesecake... and what else... hmmmmm....
Isn't she amazing!!
Now you know why I always look forward to Chinese New Year! LOL... 

However, after all being said and eaten, I need to be cautious about my own health from now on.  I am now getting younger, my metabolism is getting slower and if I eat too much and too fast, I might get indigestion or discomfort.  Well, prevention is better than cure so I better watch how much I eat this coming celebration.  By the way, I am keeping some Gaviscon in the house, well, you know, just in case... for heartburn and indigestion, it helps to relieve.... I wouldn't want to miss out all the glorious food, right?

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…
