All For The Love Of A Girl

IF NOT FOR YOU, I wouldn't go there at all..... I am not a patient lady, my friends will vouch for that, seriously!  If I could help it, I really turn down going to crowded places, queue up, pay more than it is worth, to get some "Famous" snacks in Ipoh.  I really don't like to Q...... But for the sake of a girl, not any ordinary girl but my special girl, I waited for nearly 45 minutes just to get a few packets of these precious snackies!

When I reached the shop called Ming Yue in Pasir Pinji around 12.30pm, the crowd was like this.....
In front of me, there were at least 10 people?
Never mind, I passed my time playing with my handphone...
For these freshly baked cookies, one do not need to queue up... 

But for these special ones below, our patience is being tested!
After waiting for more than half hour, it was my turn liow....
But to my great disappointment, the cookies were "Finished!"
Sigh...
 I was told to wait for another fifteen minutes for another batch!
True enough, this new batch came out after some long minutes....
Initially I wanted to get only 4 packets weighing 300 grams each..
But since I waited so long and being so Kiasu, 
I ended up buying 6 packets instead.....
For what, I also don't know!
I was thinking... 
Waited so long and only 4 packets??? 
But now come to think of it.....
Who is losing? 
Of course the buyer such as Yours Truly....
I will continue singing...
All For The Love Of A Girl.....

  3. Aiyor!!!! Queued for so long, should buy more lah, then more worthwhile. Nobody wants, can always send to me here. Hehehehehehe!!! I would not queue for anything either. I would just tell my girl to go and queue herself when she comes back. I am not so kind...but at least, these days, we can browse online on our phone while waiting. Would not feel the time go by.

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 …
