Great Day Great Meal At Tea Garden, Johor

FIRST MORNING IN JOHOR... woke up to a quiet house, my son has left for work and I took my own sweet time to move around the place. This is the kind of life I like, slow pace for an elderly lady. hahahahaa... I just cannot hurry myself anymore.  Walk also slow, cannot afford to quicken the steps like those days.  One really has to be very careful, no more walking on bare feet but with soft slippers around... hahahaa.. I really do sound like an old lady... oh dear!

At around noon, I was picked up to go for the first meal of the day.  I was given a choice to pick, so nice of my SIL... and at that moment of time, the curry noodles in Tea Garden flashed across my mind... and so Tea Garden it is!

Nice weather today... and we got to park at our car at a shaded place opposite this... 
Next to the Tea Garden is the Bank of China... 
Never seen this bank before cos Ipoh does not have one yet... 
The sideview of The Tea Garden...
Desserts corner... 
Since there were only two of us, we could not order a bit of everything to try.... 
though my eyes were eyeing from east to west... 
A hot and fresh egg tart to start off.... 
My SIL wanted something simple... Chee Cheong Fun Johor style... 
For the Ipohian, she was yearning for curry chicken mee.... 
And got questioned why I prefer to eat curry in Johor?
Perhaps the food on the other side of the mountain is more special... 
Indeed it is... I like this taste of curry... not-as-spicy as the ones in Ipoh... 
These are for mouth washing after the savoury meal... 
Tapioca with fresh coconut... fresh and nice... 
Agree completely....
I certainly had a Great Meal to start off another Beautiful Day!

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 …
