Wan Jia At Taman Wangsa Permai, Kepong

The seabass soup noodles lasted us till dinner... see, I have only two meals per day but what I don't understand is why I still gain weight when I eat "so little"...  This is really a mystery of weight gain!hehehee..

Coming back to the main topic, we had our dinner in Wan Jia Restaurant in Kepong.  It is my second time eating here and I was told that they have many signature dishes that are very succulent and tasty!  Here are some of them....
Steamed Village Chicken...
...and the chicken blends in very well with the Bentong ginger sauce..
And their Fish Head curry is not to be missed as well... 
I can practically drink the curry from the bowl and savour the sweetness of ingredients!
Venison with ginger and spring onions....
Bitter gourd with salted eggs...
Very fragrant and tasty!
Highly recommended...
Wanted something green-ny and this watercress enhances the whole meal...
The meal started off....
And ended ... 
Oh, that was not all.. 
The only disappointment is .....
The fried Man Tou came last... in fact only after we sent a few reminders...
They have forgotten about the main dish!
The Buttered Crabs!
This only came out when we were patting our stomachs... 
Such a pity!
By then the "oomph" was not there anymore...
However the crab meat was very fresh and sweet...
Each of us took a piece...
And the rest went into the freezer...
If not for the "late" dish, this would be very satisfying meal...
Maybe too crowded especially the long weekend...
Anyway, no complaints about the taste...
And finally...
The bill came to around RM275 for the 8 of us...

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?

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…
