Hollywood Food, Penang Durians And Ipoh Pomeloes Delights

AS EVENING APPROACHED, I had a nice dinner with a group of friends at Hollywood restaurant, Batu Feringgi.  It was my second time eating at this restaurant, mainly Hainanese styled, I was told.  I have not really tried much before and naturally I was looking forward to a night of new dishes.

As usual we were there quite early and before the other guests arrived, I quickly took some pictures of the empty hall...

The place where dinner was held... the side is facing the sea.... 
That is the sea I meant... but not meant for swimming though... 
And our dishes for the night were as follows... 
Cold dish... Jelly with Chicken and not sure what else... 
I am certainly not a fan of cold dish... :)
BBQ Meat.... They were not burnt though they looked somehow on the dark side.... 
Clams with some sweet sauce.. and after eating some, I called this..
Clams in Rojak sauce... 
Of the few dishes above, this looks more familiar to me....
Honey lemon chicken... Penang style... 
There is one more dish... fried meehoon with prawns... 
That came last and I did not manage to take it cos I was already "occupied'.... 
And above all, the main highlight was the Durian Desserts!
There were only seven of us and the hostess bought SEVEN packets....
Oh my goodness.... such delight!!
I ended trying one from each packet though... 
Oh, I did sponsor something too...
Notice the pink fruit?  Pomeloes from Ipoh mali....
After eating the durians, the pomeloes tasted kind of bitter.... 
I guess they should not combine... 
Another bittersweet kind of desserts!

  1. I like the BBQ meat like that, even if it is burnt a little. Nicer, very much more fragrant. Clams, prawns, chicken - all look good, dunno that jelly dish - never tried...and I would just stick to the pomelo - no, thank you to the durians. So so so so hot here these days, dunno there - best not to eat heaty fruits, so many people falling ill, dropping like flies.

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…
