St Giles The Gardens At Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur

My girl and I went to the wrong hotel in Mid Valley... Instead of St Giles at The Gardens, we entered the Boulevard St Giles instead...both having the same name but different locations altogether.... yes, we were kind of "jakuns?"  My son had not arrived yet, he came up from JB whereas we took a bus down from Ipoh... so both of us were kind of waiting at the wrong lobby!

Anyway, all were made right when I approached the check in counter and made an enquiry... and he told us that it was not the same.. though by the same management but different hotel altogether...the staff there was so kind and friendly, he even "offered" us a bell boy to take all our luggage and led us to the right hotel at The Gardens.  So nice of the bell boy too, leading us all the way through the Mid Valley shopping mall with our luggage all in the trolley... Well, "sik joe la" after that....  hahahaa...

My son was caught in the jam and he came thirty minutes after we did... it was lunch time, what else to expect in the city center?   
And finally.... our hotel room!
The welcoming beds....
And the vast restroom....
 Then we proceed to Madam Kwan for our late lunch...
It was almost 4pm then!!
 Both of us could finished them all.... !
As for dinner at 9pm, we had a "Lighter Meal" at Nyonya Colors...
And we called it a night after that...


  1. Very late lunch but a delightful one. Used to stay in the hotel next to Mid-Valley twice. Convenient and near to shopping mall.

  2. Nice nyonya dishes. Eyeing at that bowl of ais kacang. I can gulp down the whole bowl especially during this hot weather.

  3. Your lunch at Madam Kwan looks very good.

  4. LOL

    You went to the 4-star one, instead of the 5-star that you booked?

    1. Actually I am not the one who did the booking.. :)

  5. Your hotel room is so nice. I did not even know that the hotel at Gardens is called St Giles. Why only two of you ate at Madam Kwan. Your daughter did not eat with you and your son?

    1. Yes, she went somewhere else with her friend.. shopping... !

  6. Your hotel room looks very nice! The food looks delicious! Fried chicken? Yum!

  7. Yep I remember the late lunch you mentioned.. I like Mdm Kwan's nasi bojari.. Not cheap the food there but nice la.. Ooooo I see fried chicken.. Give me the skin!!

  8. Wowwwwwww!!!! So high class one, basking in luxury. Some people have all the luck in the world. ;)

  9. St Giles, hmmm, I didn't even know they have changed name, hahaha!! the hotel looks nice and most importantly, MV is a very convenient place, you have got many things under one roof..

    Madam Kwan's nasi bojari?? no problem for me to finish it!! hehe.. :p

    1. We shared the food cos it was time for dinner soon after this!!

  10. I never knew there's a hotel, or two hotels at The Gardens. Always thought there's only the Cititel there!

    Hahaha, if you mm sik joe, then I think the bell boy would cart your luggage back to where he came from! XD

    1. hahahaa... he will be sulking on his way back..

  11. I quite like Mid Valley, got hotels around, and shopping mall, all very nearby!

  12. Very nice hotel room! And of course good food :)

  13. LOL......JJ and Jusco.

    Dont say you too would make that mistake. Not familiar with MV area

  14. Whenever my foreign guests asked me to recommend a hotel, I would always tell them Mid Valley!!
    That ideal location is most central with choice of hotels and quick exit to airport.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
