Lunch In Kuala Lumpur, Dinner In Ipoh

AARON AND I DROVE DOWN TO KUALA LUMPUR USING THE WAZE... For the first time I downloaded the app in my old phone and surprisingly, it was "usable!" In fact, it led us all the way from Sg Buloh to Jalan Ampang, smoothly without any hiccups.  We parked our car at the Wisma MCA and since we were quite early for our appointment, we went to K Avenue to take our lunch.  It was just a short distance away but for me, it was considered a long one, going up and down the pedestrian bridge is no joke for me! hahahahaa..
Safely at the K Avenue mall and we opted for a Japanese lunch...
Gabriel's recommendation... .
Aaron doing his garlic on the squeezer.... 
Eventually he had to "knock" a bit so that they could be released... 
I had the Bankara ramen.... 
The soup base was pretty thick.... 
I guess I am not used to eating this type of soup... 
Anyway, I want to thank Gabriel for the hearty meal...
Great catching up with you again!

It was still drizzling when we left Wisma MCA around 2.30pm and using Waze again, we managed to go to the highway and reached Ipoh in the evening.  After checking in all our stuff, we proceeded for dinner at Tai Kong in Pasir Puteh.  More or less like homecooked food and that is what I like!
Steamed meat with "mui choy"
Salted vegetable soup...
Old melon soup....
Yes, we are "soupy" people... we ordered one for each of us.... 
And they gave us an enormous plate of blanched vegetables...
For a simple meal like this, it cost RM22...
Don't mind coming again for our dinner another time!


  1. What a rush trip! Wonder Woman Claire and her Iron Man Arron - apa pun boleh!
    This is the first time I see the garlic gadget in KL. So shiok!

    1. Stayed one night in KL already... not really super la! hahahaha

  2. Tai Kung is the best place to go if you want some simple home cooked dishes for dinner.

  3. Oh, steamed meat! I have that in my post, with a after tomorrow's post.

  4. Very homey cook food. Love it.

  5. hmmm, Avenue K from Wisma MCA is really a short distance leh, hahaha, maybe you have not makan yet so you were exhausted.. thought you makan at Franco, but you went upstairs for the Bankara Ramen, i have not tried both of these.. hmmm, the homecooked style dinner, simple but nice!! :)

    1. Oh so it is called Bankara Ramen! must be familiar there.. after the bankara, I went for Baskin.. hahaha

  6. Bankara ramen is very tasty for Ramen lovers and expensive too. I like the dinner you both ate in Ipoh. So who was the one driving - Aaron or you?

    1. Of course Aaron... he won't let me take over the wheel one..

  7. Wah, eat lunch at Avenue K, then go back to Ipoh just in time for dinner.. Nice wor, but bet you fell asleep in the car, so tiring.. The steamed mui choy pork and harm choy tofu soup look very delicious, my mil cooks this and I can wallop 2 plates of rice..

    1. No la.. no sleep in car.. very alert cos raining a bit here and there... Yes, I like any kind of soup too!

  8. Your bankara ramen looks like shark fin soup at first glance. Hehehe.

    I used Waze when I stayed in Sibu. Pretty useful although it could be confusing sometimes. Like some roads in Sibu can no longer turn right, the Waze aske me to turn right. Lol.

    Indeed your dinner is so homey. Even the bowls and plates that they used is what I used to use when I stayed in Sibu. Haha. Hubby's uncle has many of those stainless steel bowls and plates.

    1. I like steel utensils.. anything also can put in and also preserve heat...

  9. Think i prefer Aaron that bowl of ramen, loves the dinner you all order...

  10. Hahaha for the garlic crusher, I would go there for a meal! :D

  11. the ramen and the dinner looks good! I like all the dishes - steam minced pork & salted vege soup is my homely and the price is pretty reasonable too.

  12. Eh, I have a garlic squeezer just like that!

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 …
