MM2H - Making My Second Home

On the forth day, after our breakfast/brunch at my sibling's place in Sg. Buloh, we packed up again to continue on with our journey down south.  Need to stuff up our stomachs, expecting our drive to be a very LONG one since it was a Sunday....
 Bought-from-Ipoh dry wanton noodles....
And prepared by my sister-in-law...
Stuffed us up before we continued on with our trip...
 Eating up the leftovers as well... 
And soon we were on our way.... 
Our car stuffed to the fullest again!
And it was a slow drive to Johor...
Some drivers were holding up the traffic on the highway...
Cos they slowed down to have a good view on the few car accidents along the way....
As usual.. this is kind of expected...
After a few long hours, we finally reached our destination!
So good to be Home at last....
Great to be Home ...
A Different Place....
But still a Home...
A Home where our hearts are...

  1. I didn't know your siblings live in Sg Buloh. I always thought you sneaked to Small Kucing's house. LOL
    The traffic jams seemed lesser this year with the Waze being the great help to most drivers now.

    Wishing you and family a very Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year!

  12. Huh? I didn't see this coming! You moving in with your sons after retiring? I think you will be fine in terms of food, JB quite similar with KL/Ipoh.. If you love wantan mee, you can try Ah Piaw Wantan Mee near KSL mall, although they only open from 10PM - 10AM XD

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
