Ipoh And My Foodie Friends!

IT FEELS GOOD TO GO HOME, it is good to reach home in a matter of an hour more but when I think of the flight... hmmmm.... Well, a needle cannot be sharp at two ends... Two options... take a eight hour bus ride or one hour plus flight... which sounds good?  The former cost RM75 and the latter is RM103... and I chose the latter....
And so up and up and away.... we flew....
Above the clouds....
It was a fine weather this morning... Thank God...
After an hour plus, the plane began to descend...
And it feels so good to land....

Upon checking out, my girl and I were whisked into my friend's car... 
and off we went for lunch Marpoh restaurant!
The dishes were already pre-ordered by my ex-colleagues while waiting for us...
Vinegar pork!  
Yummsss!
Fish slices with ginger and spring onions.....
Ma Lai Foong Kong!
Crispy fried Oysters
And besides the yummy food, it is Great to see them once again!!
Food always bring us together no matter far or near...
hahahaaa...

  5. Really Ipoh Food Mayor, like Yang Berhormat, touch down then got personal ahmat to whisk you to food immediately! XD

    I don't like fish in ginger and spring onions like that. Not because I don't like the fish, but because that dish always makes me feel like a moron, I would pick the fish and leave the other stuff alone..

  8. You flew home? I thought you and Fernie drove to JB? Left your car there for son to use? Such a good mum!

    I'd rather fly too...especially when the price difference is so little - cannot imagine those extra long bus rides and all the stops on the way - you would have to spend money to eat some more...and even to use the toilet. May work out to be more or less the same.

  12. Flying is the faster option so it is the better choice since only need to pay a little bit more.

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
