A Day Trip From JB To Singapore JEM

Aaron took one day off to "teach" us how to take the causeway bus from our area to Singapore...  The bus comes in every fifteen minutes from Giant Supermarket, very convenient and it cost only RM5 for one way.  It was around 11.30am when we parked our car here and in less than ten minutes, the yellow bus came and ferried us away.....
One way is RM5 and coming back from Singapore cost $4sg. 
The journey took more than an hour to reach JEM in Boon Lay.
 We reached Jurong East Mall around 1pm noon... 
Here at the entrance with the Pandas' family...
Aaron took us to Llao Llao Yogurt at the mall...
 Seems to be a very popular spot especially among ladies during lunchtime!
Healthy yogurt for lunch, so I was told...
If the Q is long, then it must be Good?
Fresh fruits in between and it cost $6.50.... 
Well, worth trying out since my country does not have it yet.. 
hahahaha...
Walked around the adjourning malls and the vicinity 
and ended up at Earle Swenson....
Same family as Swenson but different menu...
Free flow of healthy salad @ $13.00....
 And we ordered just  Chicken Wraps to share among us... $18.90
And a complimentary Ice Cream Cake ....
 Free for the Birthday Boy!
Yes, that is one of the reasons we came in here...
hahahahaa... 
Precious cake being blown.....
On the way out of JEM, we came across the Westgate Social Kiosk...
Feeling curious, we hang around here....
We took a portrait picture... 
Playing with the frames on the giant screen...
Finalized Picture done....
And then we clicked "Send" and it went floating up the "sky screen"
and finally settled on one spot up on the "tree"...
Well, I guess our picture is not up there anymore the next day.... 
Just a moment of "Fun"
And after that, we took the causeway bus near the mall and back to Johor...
Few hours passed by pretty quick....
It was almost 6pm when we reached the Giant...
So now we know how to take the bus, we can go anytime we like the next time!

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?
Our fir…

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…
