Old Town Kopitiam At M Boutique Hotel, Ipoh

Long lunch hour today... Elin and I were undecided where to go for our lunch. Both of us were not very hungry and secondly, the weather was really discouraging. We wanted something light and at the same time, the place must be cooling and nice. :) After some suggestions, both of us agreed to go to Old Town Kopitiam at M Boutique Hotel.
M Boutique Hotel or is it M Hotel Boutique?
The reception/lobby reminded me of those chinese medicine shops
during the Ching/Quan /Dynasty as shown in TVB series...
(I guess I've seen too much Astro these days!)
I didn't take any pictures of the reception, not so comfortable doing so...
But I did ask about the rates though...
For standard room, it is around RM200 inclusive of breakfast for two..
Not too bad... 
Government rates is around RM160.... 
We proceeded to the Old Town Kopithiam...
 Once seated, we were requested to order our drinks first...
As for the food, Elin was busy browsing through the menu...
Both of us ordered our Honey Lemon Ice drink... 
It was so quenching and nice especially during such hot humid weather...
I wanted something light... so I ordered Laksa  RM9,90
And Elin ordered a Banana French Toast RM7.90
Just look at my laksa bowl!  So enormous, right?
Really worth the price cos I just love it!
Not too sour... not too spicy.. thick with sardine...
And in such a cooling place, I don't mind paying a bit more...
Definitely will come by here again for the Laksa again!

  7. I don't remember seeing any banana french toast in our Old Town menu in KL.. Ok maybe got but macam tak perasan pulak.. These few days we didn't go out for lunch coz so hazy, nobody wanted to drive.. So either we bring food from home or tapau from downstairs canteen..

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…
