From San Francisco, Hongkong, Kuala Lumpur To Ipoh

THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO BADE FAREWELL TO MY TWO MONTHS VACATION...  Yes, it is exactly 60 days since I last landed in San Francisco airport, my flight ticket was quite cheap then, only around RM3700 economy class with limited space to put my legs... *wish I could spend more money in first class next time but I know I won't* hahahaha... Really... 18 hours flight is no joke especially for long legs people, mine are short and still feel the crampiness...  hahaha...

I remember on the May 19th at around 1pm, I was feeling so happy when we finally landed in SF...

See what I mean... hahahaa....
Adventures was going to begin then....
Now two months later.... I am here again....
Sitting at the check-in hall...
Time to go home.... 
I was having mixed feelings...
On one side, I am ready to go home...
On the other side, I wish the holiday didn't end so soon... 
hahahaha...
We came with four bags...
Home with six! 
And it would be even more if not for the weight limit..
Each person can only carry 100 lbs to check in and one cabin bag...
Waiting in line to check in our bags.. 
Anticipating the moment....
It was a relief when our bags didn't exceed the limit...
We could still bring in another 2 lbs in each bag.. hahahaa...
Regretted that we didn't pack an extra bag of walnuts! 


The flight from SF to Hongkong was smooth and on schedule,
 in fact it arrived earlier than expected...
Despite the lack of sleep, we still managed to find some appetite 
savoring a bowl of beef noodles and..... 
.... a bowl of duck meat noodles right here at the Hongkong Airport...
hahhaha...
Two bowls plus tea cost us HK$169 equivalent to $24usd!
Ok, I better not convert back to ringgit... 
 My "charn" look at the Hongkong Airport...
But no regrets la... my duck meat noodles was very tasty despite the price!
Hahahaha...
Now I am home... 
All went well despite the 24 hours journey...
Thank God for journey mercies...

I just woke up, couldn't sleep AND it is only 4.30am!!
Guess it is called "Jet Lag"....
Just might as well get up and write this post... 
hahahahaa...

  8. I usually find it harder to adjust to the jet lag when I come back to Malaysia too. It usually takes me at least 2 weeks to become a barely functioning human being again! Welcome home! XD

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 …
