Celebration At CJ Hot Pot, Bandar Baru Ipoh

OUR KIDS ARE ALL GROWN UP and flown away from their nests, leaving the old folks at home. Yes, most of my ex-classmates are in the same boat, with children away, we have all the time in the world to catch up with one another now.  Every now and then, we find an excuse to meet up with one another, apart from celebrating birthdays or someone comes back to Ipoh after a long absence, last night was something different.  She has a Promotion!  And that calls for a Celebration too!!  LOL...

This time we went to CJ Hot Pot, out of our group of seven, only one has been there before.  So naturally the rest of us were also looking forward to trying this new place in Bandar Baru Medan on the way to Ipoh Garden East.  Our rendevous started around 7.30pm and by that time, the seven of us were like hungry horses... LOL...
CJ Hot Pot...
CJ if not mistaken, it stands for Chan Jie.. *Sister Chan*
Famous for her Hot Pot treasures!
We ordered the normal one which comes with Fish, vegetables, beancurd, yam among others... 
Recommended is their Black Beer Spareribs... 
Yes, they were indeed very tasty... 

Salted Egg Beans...
Their signature beancurd with minced meat as toppings...
Chicken wings with red fermented beancurd... 
And their Curry Bread with Prawns.... 
I like it cos it was not so spicy and the curry was creamy... 
Dipping the bread into the curry was very much encouraged.. LOL.... 
As for the bill, the six of us did not get to see it... 
The "Promoted" Lady settled it without allowing us to see it...
After all settled and done, she told us it was around RM160... 
Thank you GK for the scrumptious dinner!!
All the Best to you to your new job scope and environment 
starting from.... 
TODAY!

  3. The food sounds like good value to me. Salted egg incorporated in food has been
    in vogue but I have yet to try it.

    Glad the ladies had a lovely time. Congrats to the lady who has been promoted.

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…
