Lithuanian Artist Ernest Zacharevic In Ipoh

During our long lunch hour this afternoon, Elin and I went to a number of places... from old town, we went to Ipoh Garden to do some banking, then to Kampong Simee to have laksa for lunch, then back to old town to catch some desserts and finally back to office around 2.30pm...
We were here initially.... but there was no parking so we left for Ipoh Garden.... 
Then we came back again to this place to look for a parking...
See how "Jam" the place is.....
But we managed to find one parking eventually.... phewww....
We were right outside the coffeeshop....
And there was a big crowd there...
I thought someone is "filming" initially....
People of all ages are so fascinated.... 
So... this is the reason for the crowd....
Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic!
Not wanting to be left out, Elin and I joined in .....
 He is obviously oblivious of the crowd... 
Fully concentrated.....
 That was about it, I suppose....
 A few more touch ups ...
 and he is ready to go....
That's it!   
Good Job Done!
The crowd has gone..... we went for our desserts...
Soon it was time for us to go too...
Back to Office!

  5. How nice to be able to catch him in action! I wonder whether he was commissioned to do the drawing or not. Nice photo of you standing beside the little girl.

  8. He was in Kuching some few months ago and he drew two orang utans, one swinging from a branch and another sitting in a wheelbarrow. He is such a good artist. This picture is almost like the one in Penang but this one is a girl instead of a boy.

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…
