Family Gathering At Grandview Restaurant, Ipoh

Today is exactly one month since my mom's passing.... last Saturday we gathered together and went to the cemetery to put flowers on my parent's tomb. On the way we also stopped at another cemetery to put flowers on my husband's tomb and there is an empty place beside his grave... well, naturally that is for me.... No, I didn't book it in advance.. well, on the positive side, I know that there is a "space" for me....

After all was done, we adjourned for our lunch in Grandview Restaurant.  Thanks to one Facebook group, we came to know this restaurant... I called up to book a room and we were ushered upstairs for room privacy.  
As usual, this is our ice breaker...
SMILE!
Everybody say.... YEEEEEEEE
Eleven of us..... catching up with updates....
Smile... you're on camera!
Soon...the first dish arrived....
All were finished in no time....
Next came the oink oink...
The skin was a bit "tough".....
But the glutinous rice beneath was something to shout about....
The meat was taken out and cooked as one dish........
Steamed village chicken.... tasty....
Steamed fish...
Not sure what this is called....
And their signature dish is this "BOMB" like bread.....
Need some cutting done before it can be eaten.....
The sauce is sweet sour with some shrimps and squids....
Not bad... very appetizing.....
Noodles was the last dish......
Followed by the white fungus and gingko with soya bean....
This set of meal cost RM418...
Hope to try out some other dishes another day....

  5. hmmm, even the Ipoh Food Mayor also need to rely on FB recommendations?? hahaha, so how's this Grandview Restaurant?? i looked at the first dish, this platter is always my favourite.. i guess because i love variety so i can taste a bit of everything, and probably also because usually need to wait for very very very long before dinner starts, and this is always the first dish, haha!! :D

  7. What's that thing at the bottom of that four seasons platter photo? It looks kind of interesting to me.
    For me, the winner would be the crispy oink oink skin with glutinous rice!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
