A Foodie Trip From Ipoh To Chemor

YAY!!! TODAY IS THE DAY!!
Through "watsapp", we the three retirees finally met up  this morning at 10.30am... I was all ready to be "picked up" by my ex-colleagues and we were looking forward to a day of Food! 
The Foodie Trio!!

We started off with a Duck Project and the place is called Old Friends Restaurant.  It is located on the main road leading to Chemor town.  The Duck project had been put off many times before due to our busyness and this morning we finally made it to that place.... 
 
Though we reached there around 11.30am, the ducks were nearly all "booked"...
There were only two left for sale, we overheard....
This is the first time I get to taste this...
No wonder they get sold out fast... the meat was really tender and "yup mei!"
Don't need any sweet sauce to go with them at all...
Thumbs up for the food!
After our scrumptious lunch, we continued on with our foodie trip to a small town, Chemor...
We stopped here at this shop famous for their fish head and seafood noodles....
 
Since we were already "half-full" we ordered just a bit to try... to satisfy our curiosity...
A bit of this and that... fish maw, fish paste and wanton...
And the soup has this cilantro taste which really suited our taste buds!
 
We planned to go there some day to try the seafood noodles and fish head! 
Worth making another trip there.. perhaps next Friday??? 
Along the same row, something caught our "beauty eyes!"
hahahahaa...   
 DURIANS! 
 There and then, the vendor opened up one for us to eat....
And my friend ended up buying the rest of them!
 
The durian vendor is so cute...
And the durians are Very creamy and bittersweet!!
 
 Ok, we promised him that we would advertise his durians...
They were sold for RM8 each... good buy.. 
They are called "Da-nau"
 
Oh, he has these "Crystal Jackfruits" too... 
Did I get it correct? 
Yes, we need to "advertise" these as well... 
It is all in a Package.. hahahaha...
Otherwise we couldn't get them cheap... 
  He even gave us his phone number... 
Call him in advance so that we won't be disappointed!
Mike Mar... no joke!!
Durians all sold out to my friend...
Even coconuts were finished too!
Everyone was Happy And Satisfied with the outcome in Chemor.... 

But that is not the end of the food trip for us....
From Chemor, we drove all the way to First Garden to visit this lady....
Her smooth homemade Tau Fu Far!
Just look at me!  My double chin is coming up next!
Rounded faces could be seen even from afar!
Yes, our foodie trip from 11am till 3pm....
Phew... what a Full-Filling Day!
Thank you for the Food-Fillment, ladies!

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
