A Wedding Dinner At Overseas Restaurant, Ipoh

The wedding dinner was supposed to start at 7.30pm sharp as written in the card, and I purposely drove out at 6.30pm so that I could get a parking place in the restaurant compound. To my disappointment, all were fully parked even though I was there an hour earlier. Leaving no choice, I had to drive out again and parked opposite into another road. Quickly stepped out of the car and joined a group of women who walked past mine. Didn't want to be alone while walking and furthermore, Ipoh is no more a safe haven to walk around in the evening too...

Since I was early and my friends also arrived almost the same time, we quickly took some pictures of the beautiful garden backdrop right at the entrance of the restaurant.
Beautiful layout... 
Wonder it is from the restaurant or from the wedding planner.... 
It was made "PERFECT" when a beautiful lady sat on it....
The bride's sister... so sweet!! 
The colour of the gown suits her real nice! 
Hope I didn't spoil the garden theme.... 
As usual to while away the time...
Someone mentioned I was "squashed"...
No... I was given "love and warmth" actually...
So nice of my friend to take these pictures for me..
Theme.... Garden Wedding....
The first dish.... in three platters...
My share on the first dish... so refined...
Managed to capture our classmate, the bride's mother to have a picture with us....
And a last one before we went our separate ways....
Most probably from now on, wedding cards will be more regular....

    1. Yes, food is secondary when friends meet up... the fun of catching up with one another is more meaningful.. :)

  2. Love the beautiful layout of the garden theme. Your locally made dress looks just as nice as the owner.

  9. I guess that's not the restaurant's decor...part and parcel of the wedding planner's package? They spend thousands on the decor these days - like my niece that day. 3K for the decor at the restaurant alone. I do think the money could have been better spent on something else - best to keep it simple...unless one's rich and can jolly well afford it. After all, it's their money - can do what they want with it.

  11. Lovely backdrop. I think it is from the wedding planner. I also attended one last month and the backdrop was so beautiful. Hollywood theme.

    I should pursue my dream of a wedding planner. Did thought of it few years ago and thought it was relatively new in Kuching. But now there are few of them around. Haha.

    Lovely photos.

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…
