Gathering At Tuck Kee Restaurant, Pasir Pinji And Secret Garden

I THOUGHT I COULD NOT MAKE IT FOR THE GATHERING LAST SATURDAY due to an appointment in the evening.  But it was cancelled at the last minute and I was glad that I could make it to my ex-classmates' gathering after all.  At our age now, we try to make it to meet up as whenever the opportunity arises.  At our golden age with kids all grown up and away, this is the time to catch up with our old friends... meeting up and calling each other by our Chinese names indeed brings back old childhood days and we kind of feel young again...at least for some sweet moments!  hahahaha... 

This time we had our dinner gathering at Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji.  So nice of my friend to pick me up from my house, nowadays I do not drive out during the night if I could help it, my eyes are not so sharp now especially rainy season now in Ipoh.  Near distance is fine, anywhere further than 15 minutes, I prefer to be "picked up."  *hint, hint*
This time there were only eight of us... nice number too...
At least we can hear each other's conversation without much distraction...  :)
And our dishes consisted of the following... 
Acar as appetizer... 

Claypot braised ribs with yam... RM45 which I feel is a bit too "steeped"... 
Cabbage with almonds flakes and bacon... 
This dish is not too bad.. gave me an idea on what to do with cabbage next time..
Steamed chicken with shredded ginger... 
I prefer lots and lots of ginger to cover the chicken...
Beancurd with spinach and mushrooms... 
This dish is kind of special... stuffed mushrooms with "wai sang" and gingko... 
Claypot seafood.... 
With these few dishes, the bill came to RM254.00...
As for desserts, a few of us adjourned to Secret Garden for muffin and drinks... 
It has been a long time since I last went there... 
Nice ambience for bonding and catching up with friends and family...

  1. Ooooo...food looks so good, everybody looking great! Yes, yes, good to get together with all friends as often as we can, bonding for old times' sake. I enjoy that very much too. That acar looks great - that alone with rice, enough for me - so appetising!

  3. We love to go to Tuck Kee, especially for birthday celebrations. Never fail to order their "Mun Cheong" chicken (similar to the one u had). Looking at your pics, I think we'll try some of your other dishes the next time round.

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 …
