Melbourne By Night

First day, first evening in Melbourne.... We had our dinner in Southgate food court, it was a very long walk from our apartment and our stomachs were "growling" by the time we reached this place.... we had our dinner here... a very simple one...

We had a fusion of Chinese, Italian and Mexican.... 
She had the kid's meal Burrito with one passion drink at $5.95.. 
She and I had to share this... 
Andy ordered the regular size... big portion too!
A die hard fan for rice, I had the Thai food with 2 dishes... 
Beef and lemongrass chicken for $9.40 
Big portion... 
Two pizzas for $10... Ok, don't convert please...
Otherwise everything is too expensive to eat... LOL...
Southgate at night...
We walked around after dinner...
Different scene from the day... 
Everywhere we walked, there are performances...
Yes, we did drop some coins after it ended.... 
Hi Elmo!!
The song "Amazing Grace" was being sung.... 
The walk began... 
Very cooling and windy....
At some parts, I was shivering.....brrrrr.....rrrrrrr..............
If only my camera could capture a clearer picture... 
Reminded me of Marina Bay Singapore here... 
Andy loves the cooling weather but he didn't bring a single jacket!
Someone Malaysian took these for us.... and vice versa... 

Everywhere we walk, we can see lots of Asians... we don't feel we are actually in a western country!

  2. Very nice view at night. Lovely family pix. Hurray!!!!!!...enjoy yourself to the max.

  3. hahaha, fusion of Chinese, Italian and Mexican?? at first i thought how interesting that would be, but then only to find out you had different dishes only, not one single one that "fusion" three cooking style~~ :D

    1. We joined and tasted all in one shot... So they are sort of fused in one.,. Lol...

  4. Calories ....the food very high in calories !,

  5. I think the difference in temperature for day time and night time is huge in Aus... better bring along a jacket next time for evening outings ;)

    1. Yes, but I was wearing two pieces and my sons just wore tshirts....

  6. Nice to walk at night in the cool weather. Yes, I agree with the other comments here, better to bring along a jacket for night walks. I think I will eat the burrito, looks tasty and healthy.

    1. Yes, evening is definitely more cooling than expected but still can tahan ... when the wind blows, then beh tahan.. hahaha...

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


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…
