Invitation To A Homecooked Meal

I called up my cell leader around 6pm, wanted to invite her out for a simple dinner.... and to my sheer delight, she told me to go over to her house for dinner instead!  I was more than happy.... hahaha... love homecooked food anytime! 

I was told to go at 7pm and I arrived exactly on time!  Food was already on the table.... and she told me that the dinner was all vegetables and no meat.... Well, that was really FINE with me!  Nowadays I prefer more vegetables to meat....

Due to the yellow lighting in her dining hall, all my pictures turn out this colour.... anyone can help me to edit this to white?  hahahaa... Don't think that is possible, right?
Ok, what's this?
She told me this tastes like Ikan Perut but without the main ingredient...
(Pickled Fish Stomach Curry)
This dish consist of all vegetables only.. including pineapple...
Really appetizing... I love it!
Another vegetable dish... 
Yellow Pepper with green vege (choy sum), enoki and cucumber!
Very sweet and tasty!
My picture is not doing any credit... 
And this is Otak-Otak... very lemak (rich in santan)
She got it from somewhere.... 
Lastly and not least... a bowl of soup that consists of basil, mint, anchovies and egg....
Yummy!!  So full of nutrients, right?
It is not a simple dinner after all.... 
I wouldn't mind coming by now and then, I told her.....
Just give me a tinkle and
 I'LL BE THERE!!
hahahaaa....

  6. Claire, your timing is impeccable! Nice vegetarian dishes. For the vegetarian perut ikan dish, one can eat many bowls of rice because it is very appetizing. So the otak-otak does not contain any fish meat too?

  7. So nice, got home cooked dinner for aunty. You can use some photo editing software to overcome the 'warm' in the pictures. Try snapseed, a free app.

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…
