Johor Desserts And Roundup Trip

It has been more than two weeks stay in our new place... soon it is time for us to go back to our hometown...  both of us were really half hearted to leave Johor... only consolation is that we will be back again very soon!

Indeed it is very different comparing Ipoh and Johor... I mean the routine life that we have experienced... many of my friends asked me whether I would be "uprooting" myself from Ipoh to Johor... actually I do not know as yet...  I can adapt myself no doubt about that.... As I always used to say... Give me a Laptop and wifi and I will survive! hahahaha...

So what have we been doing for the past couple of weeks when we were there?  Needless to say.. everything has a balance... We ate a lot... exercised a bit... cleaned some... and travel much....

Here are some Johor desserts which are slightly different from where I was born...
Johoreans call this Ching Tong... 
Ipohians call it Ching Po Leong...
Ice Kacang with Cocoa as toppings...
Something different too!
 Dazzling Bubur Cha Cha....
Need to be shared!
Melon Sago Desserts...
Johor Rojak...
This one with the bunga jintan....
After all the food... 
We worked out almost everyday....
ahemm...correction.... at least I did it trice per week.... 
That sounds more like it, right???
Also relaxed a bit now and then.....
This picture needs no description...
As I said earlier...
Everything needs to be balanced....
Soon it is time for us to leave....
Bye Bye Johor....
Hello Ipoh....
Back to homeland!

  2. I am sure by now you will be missing Johor food and your boys. Then when you are in Johor, you will miss Ipoh food and your girl friends. That will keep you busy travelling to and fro. Hahaa...

  9. In the end, you still refer to Ipoh as homeland, so I think you're not so ready to uproot yourself yet. I think, when you decide to stay in Johor for long term, better do it without really disposing of everything in Ipoh first.

    I've seen my milk mother (if you know what that means, nai ma) and my sis's milk mother uproot everything to move in with their kids in another state, only to get depressed after a few months and look for means to move back.

    They said the idea to live with their kids is great, but most of the time the kids are working and they are left alone anyway, and when they moved to a new place, all their friends are not within easy access.

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

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

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 str
