Coffee Murals In Ipoh

Every new day we start off our day with a good meal... but not every time the food tastes good.  I was told by one of my FB friends that the fish noodles in this shop tasted not bad.  I won't be naming the shop because the food disappointed not only me but also my friends as well.   Well, it is not surprising... not everyone's taste is the same, right?  Thus the proverb... "One man's meat is another man's poison."
My friend ordered seafood noodles... 
She told me that though the ingredients were lots but the taste is somehow bland...
Maybe not enough MSG... hahahaaa...
This is my bowl of fish noodles... 
Very pathetic looking compared to the ones I used to take....
Well..... got to try then only we know, right?
But Once tried....  never buy....
On the way back, these Giant Coffee packets caught our eyes....
Good that they painted these high up...
Can avoid vandalism....
One look at these, people will know that IPOH is famous for her coffee....  
Sip..... sippp... sippppppp.... Finished..... !
The thirst is quenched especially on a hot sunny day!

  1. yalor, never try never know.. if good, then you found a gem you could go more often.. if not good, then you have one place less to go.. and i think that "kopi-o tapao" surely is a gem!! i like it, so nice and so "Malaysian", kudos to whoever did that!! :)

  5. Seafood noodles looks great but sad to say that it turns out to be a disppointment. Owh, I never know Ipoh is famous for its coffee and I thought it was pamelo all the while.

  8. I thought the pictures look good, then after reading I look back, they somehow look less appetizing. I guess they are right when saying, your perception will influence how you look at things hahaha.

    1. Yes, I believe so... words are very sharp.. people tend to change their perception of things after reading... but it is best to try them out before making a conclusion... especially on food..

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…
