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.

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 …
