What To Do Whilst Waiting For Your Food To Come

As I’m a big fan of going out to restaurants, there are always a few times when I’m slightly ahead of my fellow eating companions. And so recently I’ve been devising a few ways that I can stay productive when I’m waiting to be sat down at the table. After all there’s nothing worse than having to wait a long time to eat that large bowl of dry curry chicken noodles!
A lot of the time I will take a book to pass the time, but recently I’ve started taking my smartphone which is packed full of great entertainment regarding film trailers, online games, and even some further restaurant ideas.

When I’m meeting friends for dinner, we often have a big meal before heading out to the movies. And I’m a massive fan of the IMDB app which is specially catered for smartphones and tablets and gives me an exhaustive list of all the upcoming cinematic attractions.

The great thing about this is that it allows me to switch over to the YouTube app so that I can check out all of the trailers for the movies and see whether it’s going to be a suitable film for the night’s viewing entertainment.

However, there are a few times when we’ll be a little more daring and follow up that sweet pear dessert with a suitably glamorous trip to the local casino.

Something about the chandeliers and bright lights of casinos always goes down particularly well after a lavish meal. And seeing as the Betway online gaming site allows you to to get a sign up bonus so that you can quickly and cheaply play their roulette and poker games, it’s provided a pretty good distraction whilst waiting for friends to turn up on a pre-casino meal!

There are also some great apps that can help you find out a little more about the evening’s meal too. I particularly like reading some Malaysian recipe ideas on the Cook Malay app so that I can find out which spices make each of the dishes so appetising. And the app is also good for explaining what some of the more mysterious items on the menu are too!

And then if I’m being particularly lazy and can’t face heading out on an evening, I simply fire up the Deliveroo app and enjoy great takeout food from real restaurants whilst playing some of those endlessly enjoyable casino games - all from the comfort of a smartphone!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
