A Gift To Yours Truly

I love sitting at home if I am in Ipoh.  Of course I do go out for food and catching up with my friends on and off, but most times, I rather stay home to rest and relax.  My friends say I am like an "octopus" with endless legs, always seem to be traveling here and there but I am not really so.  If I am not in Ipoh, I am either at the north or south of Malaysia because those are the places where my kids are stationed at the moment.  They used to tease me, "Mom, in Malaysia, you have covered north, west and south already!"  Yes, only the east part of Malaysia I have not drive over yet, I mean as yet...

That is why I mentioned I love to sit at home when I am back in Ipoh.  Shopping is out of the question, no more cravings for new clothes or anything extravagant on my body.  No more unnecessities in the shopping malls if I could help it.  I spend my money on Food and my Travels, I always tell my friends.  When it comes to real shopping such as on birthday gifts, celebrations, anniversaries, there is a solution to getting gifts without the hassle of going out to walk endless stores to get what I want.  Recently I found one online store which offer what I want to get for myself, my family and friends.  In fact I have claimed one free mug from them during a promotion some time ago and since then, I am now thinking of getting a couple more gifts for my love ones and friends.  Shhhhhh... better not let them know otherwise it will not be a surprise anymore.  hahahahaa.... 

I always wanted to have my own customized mug for myself.  Before this, I have purchased a whole set of customized mugs for my brother's family, five of them in total.  Each time I go and visit them, the five beautiful mugs with their pictures on them could be seen displayed in the house.  They told me that they are "too good" to be used so the mugs were being decorated instead.  hahhaaha...  This time I got one for myself at www.printcious.com.

Besides mugs, there is a wide selection of gifts to get for yourself or your love ones.  This is something more personalized and not everyone can get the same as what you do.  You can customize your own photos, be it scenery, wordings or any love dovey messages, each gift you order will be specially done for you.
Part of the categories in the website... 

Initially I did not know how to upload my picture to the mug... and I was like "stuck" halfway.  But no worries, there is an "ever-ready" customer service chatbox just at the right hand corner of their website.  The customer service was so helpful, she guided me through step by step, from A to Z, patiently with this auntie (yours truly) here.  Finally I got everything done up smoothly and within a few days, I received this special package...
 Carefully wrapped up with bubble wrap inside as well... 
 Giving with Art is giving with Heart... 
That is a very nice quote... Yes, even to myself! 
hahahahaa...
A gift to myself... 
Well, that's me with my precious mug!

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 …
