OAKS Horizon Apartment Hotel, Adelaide, Australia

THE FLIGHT FROM KL TO ADELAIDE TOOK MORE THAN SEVEN HOURS and we reached Adelaide around 8am *time difference is 1 1/2 hours later in Adelaide*...  and reached our Oaks Horizon Hotel/Apartment before our appointed check-in time.  Since our apartment was not ready yet, we "parked" our luggage there and went for our breakfast in Rundermall area....  and so what did we end up eating???
Yes, Dim Sum!!
Right in the center of Adelaide shopping area!
Suits me REALLLL FINE!! 
Hongkong Dim Sum... not Malaysian.... so they are a bit different....
Ordered a bit of this and that.....
I left out the Giant Beef Balls!
Curry noodles opened by a Malaysian ex-lecturer, so I heard....
Not bad, I like it cos it is not spicy.....and lots of fillings...chunks of chicken...
I think it cost around $8Aud...
Self-service...
Walked and rested a bit after our meal.....
  Famous landmark at Runder Mall...
Soon... it was time to check in... at last..... 
 Our rented apartment view from the main door....
From the balcony door...
Master bedroom....
Attached bathroom...
This is for me and my girl....
With attached bathroom too....
 View from the highest floor...
From the 17th Floor view, Adelaide Conventre Center is just opposite...
Only setback about the apartment is this....
NO WIFI!
The only thing to "capture" the internet is to sit near the balcony each day....
Thanks to ACC, we managed to stay connected!!

  5. Aiyor!!!! Go all the way there to eat stuff we can get back home! Ah well!! As long as they're good - usually at these ang moh countries, they have these to "phian ang moh", bluff one only, nothing like the real thing and expensive (ah well...nothing is cheap there - best to buy raw food, cook in apartment, cheaper) and HUGE servings...but what you had looked ok, not that big at all.

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
