No Q For Book Lovers

Besides being a food lover, I am also into books!  But not all kinds of books, only selective ones.  Before the computer was "born", I was an avid book reader. When I eat alone at home, there would be a book beside me... when I go to my "private small cubicle", I would be holding a book too... and yes, before I go to sleep those days, I would be reading some chapters and sometimes when the storyline gets more and more exciting, I would be reading even when it was after midnight.
Books pending... yet to be read...

Well, as time goes by and the latest gadgets come to "live"... I spend less of my time reading books but more into reading blogs and social media networking (the one that starts with a capital F).... but nevertheless, I still manage to squeeze in some of my day's time to read... 
I received a small package sent from Singapore recently. 
My books which I ordered through this online store called noqstore.asia has finally arrived!
My favourite author is Sidney Sheldon but since he has passed on, 
Tilly Bagshawe is the one I am following now.... 
Her writing style is almost the same with the Sidney Sheldon.
Here's her three books that I have ordered and arrived!

And now to benefit my readers... you can also order books in this website here by quoting REANA and get an exclusive 15% discount on all purchases at NoQ store... valid from 11 August till 31 December 2014!  More than 14 million books are in store for you... No Buy never mind, at least go and take a look!

  1. Ahhhhh!!!! Good convenient way to buy books but I do enjoy browsing around the stores to pick the book I want plus the added bonus of the nice smell of brand new books.

    2. Won't buy if I have a choice. Last week a small piece of plastic fell off from the hole that I insert the charging connector. It's been going downhill ever since. Now I charge the phone overnight, can get 40% capacity only :(

    3. Oh really... then must get one.. 40% can only last a couple of hours if using watsapp.. or even less if surfing.. Chinese saying... old one don't go, how to get new one leh?

  9. Me too! I love to read, and when I was growing up, I would even bring a book to the dinner table. That made my mom mad. But now there is laptop, ipad, Smart phone, and my books stay in the bookcase. There are not enough hours in the day, Claire!

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…
