We The Tourists At Jonkers Street, Malacca

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, we went for a one night stay in the historical town, Malacca!  The traffic was pretty smooth on the highway but once we reached the Malacca toll, the road leading to town was all pretty jam up with tourists... And we made the mistake of going straight to Jonkers Street for our lunch of all the places....
We got down from our cars while the drivers went looking for parking.... 
So many tourists like us....
And the cars were moving at a very slow pace...
Probably all were looking for car park....
Right in the middle of the Jonkers...
People here and everywhere... 
I thought this was an eatery place... but more on desserts and souvenirs...
My girl has to queue up next door instead.... 
While queuing up, this attracted my eyes....
Eat while they are hot....
As for our lunch, never go on a crowded day....
Don't mind the presentation....
Eat just to fill our tummies... 
20 Chicken Balls....
And our lunch for seven people cost RM102....

My tired and exhausting look... 
Can't wait to check in to the hotel and ...............  
RELAX......

  3. Long time I didn't eat Putu Piring. Dishes looks good & instead of chicken rice ball, I prefer the loose rice.

  5. If I ever want to visit Jonkers street, I better remember to go on normal working days. Wouldn't want to be caught in traffic jam.

  8. I went Jonker once to buy the nyonya chang some people blogged about - went round and round and round so many times in search of the shop and the woman was so snooty like hers were the best in the world, not friendly at all...and the chang were just so-so only - much nicer ones in Kuching...from much nicer people.

    1. There are always different types of people everywhere not just in one place... too bad she discouraged you from buying anymore... I like the nyonya food there...

  9. Lastime b4 trying chicken rice balls, I very harap can try.. Then when I tried it at Jonker Street, I still prefer the normal chicken rice (served on a plate), coz the balls type are a bit sticy, and I think they add water to be able to roll it with hands.. I can imagine eating people's "daki" on the balls, coz they roll by hands, haha..

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 …
