Holiday Plans To Broome, Australia

Just few days ago, I received an email from an online booking company on accommodation all over the world, stating that I have a credit of $27 in my account and it will be expiring in September this year.  I accumulated that credit from my last year Europe tours where I stayed in some homestyle accommodation. Without hesitation, I forwarded this email to my son, he loves to travel and perhaps this year, he will take me somewhere again!  (Hope he is reading this part!)

It would be great if we could spend some time holidaying as a family again.  On my part, there is no restrictions anymore since I have retired from my job, I can go anywhere and anytime I like.  Yes, we have made some plans to go traveling and since there are four of us, one has suggested going to Switzerland and another wanted to go Perth.  Come on, budget, guys!  Going somewhere too far will burn a hole in the pocket definitely... hahahaa....
Perth is pretty near to our country and the weather is almost the same, I told my son.  Why not go somewhere where we can experience the cooling weather and yet it is not too far to fly?  My suggestion to them is Broome, Australia!  Why Broome?   Well, I am one who opts for holidays that offer relaxation and comfort.  I do not like to hustle and bustle life of a city, they stress me up pretty badly, contrary to Broome, it sounds like the kind of holiday I would like to go to.  Here is what I did....


The very first thing I clicked on this website is the accommodation in Broome.  From here, I can check out how their rooms look like and of course, their rates as well.  All I need to do is to key in our date of checking in and out and the rates for each night will be clearly shown.  And I am so glad that I like what I see here!


For a family of four, there is a range of accommodation that cater us, either we prefer the basic family rooms or king studios, the cost of the accommodation is within our budget and yet, the rooms look so comfortable. The rooms are equipped with complete amenities that include a full kitchen for us to prepare our own meals if we do not want to eat out all the time.
This is a Basic Family Room for four persons.  It comes with 1 separate bedroom with a queen bed and a living area which contains 2 single beds with 2 trundle beds.  There is a small kitchen fully equipped with facilities such as the microwave/convection oven, hotplates for cooking, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery and all other necessary utensils for cooking and taking our meals.  The room is fully air-conditioned, comes with a TV, DVD player and multiple free to air channels too!
 Towards the evening we can walk along the beach or have a nice relaxing time at the swimming pool which is filled with tranquility.  Apart from the pool where we can have BBQ with our friends, there is a quaint Art Gallery featuring works from many Kimberley artists for art lovers.  Apart from these, there is easy access via Broome Bus Service to many Broome resorts, tourist attractions, restaurants, galleries, shops and of course, beautiful and romantic beaches!

Well, after checking out the information and details, the next thing I do is to forward this post or the website to my kids.  Hope they will give the "green light" and once they do, there will be no turning back!  :)

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 …
