Older And Wiser Kopitiam At Bandar Baru Menglembu, Ipoh

My eyes sparkled at the pictures which my friend, May Tan, posted up recently in her Facebook and they got me smitten... She used to tell me that whenever food is the topic, my eyes will sparkle!  hahahaa.. That is her way of describing my passion for food.  Am I really that obvious?  In cantonese, it is called "Wai Sik" meaning I like to eat anything edible!

Back to the topic... since I did not know where the place was, she took the trouble to wait for me at the Farlim traffic light and from there, she led us to this place called Older & Wiser Kopitiam in Menglembu.... it was lunch time when we reached and we had to wait for a short while before we were seated.  We didn't order much because we were still full from our breakfast....
Wanton Noodles....
Roasted duck to go with the noodles or rice...
Roasted and BBQ Pork...
Crispy and sweet....
These suit me real fine... not too fat and not too lean...
A small bowl of "Chap Choy"
Very nicely done!
For the three of us, the bill came to RM29 with drinks.
I think it is not too expensive...
Heard that the Nasi Lemak is also nice here...
So I think we will come back again for sure!


Here is the address... 
No. 17, Persiaran Kledang Timur 21, 
Bandar Baru Menglembu, 31450 Ipoh, Perak.

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…
