Happy Happenings In Old Town, Panglima Lane, Ipoh

Sunny Sundays have been invading Ipoh for the past couple of weeks.... and it was no different yesterday when we ventured out to Old Town for a rendevouz.  We gathered in Uncle Lim Kopi for our breakie and a few of us had the Special Nasi Lemak.
The plate was filled to the brim 
and it cost RM10.80...
Nice to eat but I felt very thirsty after that..... 
Ultraman Junior doing his stint... warming up...
And now presenting...
Ultraman Mama also warming up....  for the Hot Walk!
Yes, we should bring along a few caps....
These umbrellas above were just too high for the taking....
Along the way, this yellow signboard caught my attention....
So... the Lou Wong is opening its branch here.... starting from TODAY!!
Good... perhaps from now, the old town will become more lively in the evenings!
This shop is forever bustling with patrons....
Concubine Lane aka Panglima Lane is also bustling with people...
My friend, Celine is doing some promotion here on health food...
After all the sample tasting, I finally got what I wanted..
Actually I do not know which is which... 
So many to taste!
Some homecooked goodies for sale too...
It would be great if there were more stalls opened along the whole row....
Chinese New Year is around the corner...
Hope there will be highlights for another two weekends!
 
Towards the other side of the road...
We landed ourselves here at a historical building...
Uncle Barber having his quiet time.....
Another one of those shots....
Some cute faces doing some kiddie stuff....
.... Ultra-woman.....
Don't play play!
Best Friends Forever....
Regardless of age....
Even her baby girl is named after my Nick....
Not bad... eh.... 
"Mother and Daughter and that makes me a so-called Grandma liow!"

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 …
