Gunong Rapat Laksa

For Elin and I, we called it Laksa day! We went all the way to Gunong Rapat for the taste of some sourish and spicy soup with white round noodles...But to our dismay, the road side stall was not opened yet.  I guess it opens at 2pm instead of noon.  This road side laksa stall is just outside the village town hall, very easy to locate. 

Feeling disappointed and leaving us with no choice, we proceeded to the Main Road in Gunong Rapat... our hearts and minds were still on Laksa, Laksa... and we came by here...
Very easy to locate too... shop just facing the market...
Their special table.....
What is this called? Hexagon or what?
 Presentation is out... right?
Not as dainty as those in Penang..
Ordered these too... 
How was the taste?
I still preferred to go to the road side stall.... 
The "kick" there is much stronger than this... 
But not many people like to eat at roadside under the hot sun and shade....
But Reanaclaire does not mind... 
She will just tie up her hair and enjoy the Laksa!

  3. Hmm...this is laksa???? Looks totally from our Sarawak laksa. Sometimes roadside food are nice but the minus point is that it is very hot to sit under the shade.

  7. What is that with the lettuce and broth in the next to last picture? It looks like chicken? You are right, it IS a hexagon table, what a wonderful idea, and so much better for eating than round!

  8. This is assam laksa right? Assam laksa tastes sour but other types of laksa do not. Sarawak laksa does not taste sour.

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…
