A Drive To Sutera Mall, Johor

What do we normally do each day in our new place here?  It is almost like a routine now... and I really do not want it to end soon... It is like a new life here in JB... change of life, much different from Ipoh cos we are new here and there are much to explore each day.

Few days ago, I met up with my JB friends and they took us to Sutera Mall for lunch.  To my delight, this mall is just ten minutes drive away and it is so easy to remember!  Straight road all the way... how could I not remember?  hahahaa.... 

The next day my girl and I ventured out on our own to Sutera Mall ... even my sons were so "proud" of us... they themselves never been there before on their own... hahahaa.. 
Lots of ample parking from where I stood.....
This year's decoration....
CNY atmosphere at the entrance....
Reminded me of my grannies' houses...
The houses were so simple and yet we never complained... 
Brings back good old memories of the yesteryears....
Nice.... I like them decorated this way....
Inside the mall....
After a couple of hours or so, we had our hands full....
Time go to home and prepare dinner...
This is the life of a "unpaid maid" aka "a MOM"
hahahaa...

    1. Is it expensive? Yes, there are a few restaurants here.. Called Beijing or Peking? Been there once during a Christmas Church dinner last few years ago.. :)

    2. Yes, that is the one, Peking! It must be expensive, or maybe they ordered all expensive dishes hahaha! To me personally, my favorite Chinese restaurant in JB is the halal Chinese restaurant of Puteri Pacific Hotel (old Pan Pacific). The chef is a Chinese Muslim from Yunnan, China.

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…
