Delightful Time At Kok Thai Restaurant Despite My Poor Memory

I REALLY HAD A SHORT MEMORY... Just last week, I suggested having dinner with a couple and we decided to have it last night.  Thank goodness she whatsapp me to remind me of the dinner yesterday afternoon, I have forgotten all about it!!  It would not be a problem but it definitely is when I had made an appointment with another friend for dinner on the same evening too!

When the message came in, I was like... "OH ... OH.... What shall I do?"  This couple does not know my friend and vice versa and I did not feel like canceling either party's date.  My end solution was...
Come, let's go together for the dinner... Four of us... No canceling to either party and no disappointment to whosoever.... My fault, my apologies!  The dinner will be on me, that is for sure! hahahahaa.... 

This Crispy fried chicken was on promotion rate RM24
We were given gloves to eat it just like that...
which I found a bit depressing.. so I requested it to be cut and put onto a plate..
And I was told that it would be extra RM2 to cut it up... 
*Logic?*
And for the extra RM2, it was nicely presented..
I think I skip ordering this again if I could help it... 
I ordered their signature dish Claypot Hoi Mei aka seafood.... 
And their claypot Kangkong as well...
I like this dish... the leaves were young and fresh.... 
And lastly the Foo Yoong Omelette... 
The dinner came to RM110 for the four dishes... 
We had a great time even though the three of them do not know one another...
And after talking some "history".. it seems they were "ex-colleagues" in a way before!
What a Small World!

Well, the night was still young after the dinner.... 
And surely and dearly, this was on my mind... 
Despite my forgetfulness, I am glad that we could have a sit-down dinner together... 
And having experienced this, I just need to have more ice cream
To keep my memory good and strong!
hahahhaa...

  1. Sometimes I also join my friend's friends when we have breakfast date. I dont mind. Can meet new friends. Haha.

    Nice dinner. It is indeed hard to eat the chicken with hands. Better let them chop it. The claypot seafood looks yummy. I want that.

  3. Yalor, no problem at all. Make new friends, keep the old - one is silver the other is gold - the more the merrier! Oh? So the name only is Thai - thought you went to a Thai place.

  4. What a brilliant idea, Claire! The crispy chicken and the omelet look very good. So do YOU with that ice-cream.

  5. Hmmmmm... the standing crispy chicken seems a hit now! I go back and try! I saw my family went there a few times, especially when my bros are 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 …

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…
