Face To Face With Sarawakian Food

WOKE UP WITH A STARTLE... oh my, it was 9.20am!! How did I manage to sleep through the half morning?  Wake up, Sleepy Jean... time to start out a new morning... Oh, then I realize that it must be the quietness and the peacefulness over here....

Alright, get up Lazy Bum... and start working!  By the time I finish what I am supposed to do, I lay in wait for my SIL to pick me up for our first meal of the day.  Our appointment is always around noon... we work at a very slow and relaxing pace.... hahahaaa...

We went to a shop called Face-2-Face.... upon entering, we kind of shivered... the fans were at a full blast motion, air con was on and it was drizzling outside... Both of us were so Cold and Hungry!  Quickly we made our orders and within minutes our food were being served... I think I made history in taking the pictures just now... Fast and Furious so that we could dig in the food!!

The ambiance is nice.... green and soothing to the eyes... and cold!
This came first.... Garlic Chives Dumplings... So crispy and tasty!
I super Like!
Pan Mee with a different kind of sauce... Nice, Nice!
My order.... Sarawak Noodles!  Super Nice... the lard was tastefully obvious!
Came with two mini balls... and hands were shaking by then... 
We ordered extra bowl of soup... Sayur Manis with golden eggs.... 
Taste Sedap and Nice!
Our first proper meal for today.... for Two!
Wahhhhh.. Everything tasted Super Nice... 
Cos both of us were Super Hungry!
Quickly I put away my hp and dug in the food... 
Within minutes, all vanished leaving the empty bowls... all RM26 of food!
Who says aunties cannot eat much? 
After our first meal, we went for the second...
If you could guess what we took next, I am gonna give you a prize! 
hahahahaa...

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
