Penang Murals And AEON BIG, Farlim

HAVING NOTHING MUCH TO DO IN THE AFTERNOON, MY FRIEND TOOK ME FOR A RIDE TO THE NEWLY OPENED AEON BIG IN FARLIM... With the blazing sun looming above us, it was indeed a hot day especially there is no shaded car park in the huge open area at AEON...We drove up to the parking inside the building thinking there would be covered car park... but alas, it was just a roof parking, as hot as it is at the ground level.... Seems Everyone have to park their car under the hot scorching sun.

Alright..so what is in store for us here... AEON Big is one of the main tenants... upon entering, most of the shop lots are still very vacant and empty.... but instead of seeing the empty  shoplots, they were replaced by interesting murals from Penang... not actually the original murals painted on the walls here but canvas type hung up while waiting for the shops to be occupied.... A very good idea actually...
Upon entering, one can feel the Penang atmostphere.... 


I am sure shoppers will find it interesting to take pictures as they walk along.... just like me! 
Looks so real and nice..... 
Reminds me of the Malacca heritage houses too...
It is like so-like Penang over here....
Interesting and fascinating, right?
At least someone has come up with this idea to make up the empty lots at the mall....
And this the real scenerio on a Wednesday afternoon.....


As I was wheeled along the way... no obstruction... all in full view.... 
Along the upper level....
Cooling and nice....
Quiet time for us retirees to come here and have a quiet walk... 
A nice time to catch up among the oldies but the goldies like this picture here....
Yes, this is AEON BIG...
Indeed it looks huge here...
Chinese New Year is coming soon...
Hope by then, more shops will be opened to attract us customers....

  2. I like the interactive murals, can sit on the stools or in the trishaw for photos. Ours here, no such thing, not impressed.

  4. I went there before and the mall is really empty, lots of shops are still not occupied, and the most funny thing is, those at the ground floor are temporary only, separated by partitions, haha.. hope more shops will move in soon..

    1. You went there before? You mean before it was opened? Just only recently it was newly opened...

  5. Beautiful murals paintings & it reminds me of Penang. A good & creative idea to use canvas. Looks so spacious the shopping mall.

  6. Hopefully they will install some metal shelters/roofings for the open air car park to shade the cars from the hot sun. Brilliant idea to print those banners with the mural pictures for the public viewing,

  9. I think someday Penang would be full of murals until there are no clean and empty walls left.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
