Kam Hor Steamed Chicken, Ipoh Garden, Ipoh

WHEN I WAS STILL IN US, I was thinking of Ipoh curry noodles... now that I am back, the first thing I wanted to eat is Chicken Koay Teow aka *kai see hor fun* 

 After waking up at 4am and published my previous post, it was almost 6am... I was still very wide awake by then and one thing came to my mind.... Jogging!  Okay, not jog.. walk will do... Quickly I woke up my girl and together we went to Polo Ground....  It had been so long since I last had a good brisk walk and I really sweated...

An hour later, we landed ourselves in Boon Bak Garden for the famous "Kai Si Hor Fun!"  
Waited twenty minutes to fulfill my satisfaction... 
The soup is just enough to cover the noodles and I didn't waste them at all....
This bowl lasted me till dinner...... 
*I think I am still a small eater... seriously*
For dinner, my friends came and fetched us to Kam Hor in Ipoh Garden...
Oh oh... Kai Si Hor Fun again?
Yes!!
Ipoh Beansprouts... ever crunchy!
Their Sai Toe Fish balls....
Nicely arranged Steamed Chicken with green leaves... 
Servings for three... 
And my bowl of Ipoh Koay Teow....
Still as smooth and fine...
I like their generosity of the greens in the soup....
The half hour wait in Kam Hor is really worth it.... 
For four people plus drinks, the bill came to RM43....
Ipoh... Ipoh... I am Back!!

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 …
