A Wedding Buffet At 59 Sixty At Komtar Towers, Penang

THE MAIN REASON FOR CHECKING OUT FROM ROYAL HOTEL TO JEN HOTEL is to attend a special wedding dinner at the 59 Sixty Dining and Bar in Komtar.   We checked into Jen Hotel (formerly known as Shangrila and Traders) because this hotel is the most convenient for us, just a few minutes walk out from the hotel to Komtar in our dinner clothing and high heels without having to cross any roads in broad daylight.  LOL....

We checked in one day earlier to get us familiarized with the surrounding and on how-to-go-about so that we would not be late for the wedding.  Somehow, we managed to find the place through some walkways here and there.... and we make sure that there are special landmarks for us to remember so that we would not get lost the next day.  LOL....

The wedding buffet started at 11am and we were right on time.... since we were the first early birds, we took endless pictures of this beautiful dining hall....
View from the 59 Sixty in Komtar.... 
Part of Penang at one angle... 
From another angle.. through the window panes... 
The Penang bridge could be seen.... 
Komtar Tower is the highest building in Penang....
The place where the wedding was held.... very nice ambiance.... and free style... 
Early birds can have more time lingering here and there... 
And I sent my "photographer" out to take whatever is seen...
Just a small section from where we were seated..
Most of the main dishes were covered up.... 
Initial takings.... eat slow and steadily..
So much to savour and enjoy.... 
And we the early birds... before the buffet started... 
And when the buffet ended.....
It was almost 2pm and we made our way back to Jen Hotel...
Checked out and drove back to our home sweet home in IPOH....

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…
