Birthday Celebration In Shing Lee Restaurant, Ipoh

Celebrated my ex-classmate's birthday few days ago in a restaurant we had not been before ever since it changed owners last year. The restaurant is called Shing Lee originated from Jelapang and recently opened another branch opposite Jaya Jusco in Ipoh Garden.  It was quite empty on a Friday evening... and since this was our first time there, we did not really know what to order....
 Birthday girl wanted to try the Cod fish... 
Half piece steamed and half deep fried...
I think it would be advisable to order those swimming in the tanks... 
We ordered some greens..
Two Flower Crabs... and the flesh is very fresh!
And a plate of Sang Mee... 
Not too bad...
I didn't have a good appetite that night...
I feel some kind of virus coming on to me.... 
But it didn't dampen the atmosphere...
The bill came to RM120 inclusive of rice and drinks..
Happy Birthday CH!
My friend since 1973...
In fact all of us are pretty Old Friends... 
hahahaha...
Somehow the group is getting smaller and smaller...
Anyway, no worries...
Good friends are hard to come by...
So... do treasure the time we have every now and then...

  9. "I think it would be advisable to order those swimming in the tanks..." I hear it is best not to - they've been out of their natural habitat for dunno how long, so may not be nice. If nice and new, of course that would be best. I prefer mud crabs to these flowery ones...but they're expensive, can't afford to eat, maybe once in a long while.

    1. Mud crabs are nice nice.. flower crabs have their own sweetness as well.. those swimming in the tanks are normally fresher than those kept in the freezer.. :)

  11. The flower crab is very pretty. I have not heard of this kind before. I hope you will be alright! Drink lots of water, and have honey too. It kills bacteria. Be well, my friend.

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…
