Wrong Direction Ended Up In Pun Chun, Bidor

MET UP A FRIEND IN TELUK INTAN AND he recommended this shop to us where goodies snacks were sold.  Most of the roads are "one way" and it is like driving within a "box" ... It is a small town but nevertheless, there were many tourists like us too.
We ended up buying some local snacks in this shop the friend recommended...
Most of them are similar to those sold in Ipoh but different manufacturers...
After buying our stuff, we decided to go home.... 
Then we saw one familiar bus from Ipoh...Sri Maju....
Instead of following Waze, we decided to follow the bus instead...
We thought this bus would lead us out from town and back to Ipoh...
But we were wrong, after following it for more than half hour....
We realized the bus was going down south than north! 
Since we ended up in Bidor town after some turnings,
we took the opportunity to stop at Pun Chun restaurant...
Had their once-upon-a-time famous wanton noodles....
And their giant dumplings filled with fresh prawns and meat....
Ordered a herbal chicken soup as well.. RM8.50
The wanton noodles with two bowls of dumplings plus drinks cost around RM15
After the heavy meal, we walked along the row of shops and saw these cuties... 
Displayed in front of the shop....
They even have a facebook page on these.... 
Some young girls were buying one of each... 
But this giant cow.....
And the giant doggie were left behind....
They looked kinda of sad...
No, I didn't take them home... 
Don't think I have the heart to eat them up!
Oh well, our day trip ended later than expected...
From Bidor it took another an hour to get home...
It is not too bad after all...

  2. I thought Pun Chun also sells those kai chai beng (chick biscuit) and sak keh ma? My favorite leh those! If I pass by there I will buy some, if got freshly made one. Nowadays hard to find, mostly those vacuum sealed (not fresh) ones...

  5. So long I have not heard or visited Pun Chun. Bidor seems to have good feng shui for good restaurants and local bakeries!

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…
