A Non-Oomph Feel Tonight

Nothing special to write about... the"oomph" is not here tonight.... lots of things on my mind... but I try to "divert" myself from those issues... Ranting out in my own blog sounds like a good idea, however.... some are too personal to disclose... To overcome this problem, I must open up a new blog with a new identity and then whatever XXXX can be blast out.... one fine day I might do that... 

Meanwhile bear with me... being a Food-holic, these were taken today, Tuesday 24th June.....
Chee Cheong Fun in Thean Chun Old Town... 
RM3.20 for the above.... 
Some fish balls must go with the CCF then only "shiok"
Another RM2.80 for the 4 pieces...
And as if they are not enough, I ordered my dessert to make the meal complete...
RM2.50 or so... cannot remember the price for this.. haiyah...
*  yan loe chor... *
 
Now... adding them up, my meal cost around RM8-9...
If I just order a plate of CCF and a glass of plain water, it would be less than RM4...
And for tonight's dinner, I just whooped up a simple meal like this...
Penang white curry noodles without the creamer.... about RM1.50
And a packet of organic spinach... RM3.50

Oh gosh... I seem to be very calculative tonight...
Something is very wrong here... hhmmmmm...

    1. Yeah so so only la.. I prefer the non-spicy type.. chicken mushroom or whatever.. but it is better to make own soup and pour over the noodles after that... :)

  4. I am having ccf nearly everyday for brunch. Just can't eat enough but I can only eat 1 portion (one sheet - RM1.60) per meal. Your dinner got vege is got enough. Tell us the price is not calculative lah. Really hope you let out whatever is bothering you - write it out on paper to rant and then tear up the paper to keep it private. Could work.

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…
