Two Meet-Ups, Three Meals On A Beautiful Day

HOW I SPENT MY DAY.... 

Sacrificed my sleep, waking up earlier than usual and out from my house at 8am to First Garden to have a nice breakfast and most importantly, to meet up with my ex-colleagues, catching up with the latest "gossips" from one another.  LOL... Those days I used to rush back to the office after breakfast but it is so different now.  Eat with peace and leisure, enjoying every moment lingering at the coffeeshop with my gang and this only happens once awhile.... 
This piping hot of meehoon with fish cost RM8 now!
From those days when I was still working, it cost around RM5.50.....
What a difference... but then... once awhile, just eat and enjoy!
As Hokkien saying, "ku ku jip pai"  
LOL... 

After the meet-up with the gang, I went home and lazed around the laptop till my second meet-up with a blogger whom I got to know not too long ago... Her name is Irene Chan and she is a sweet young lady who is still working, unlike yours truly.  Actually she came to my blog and commented and I went over and somehow, I know she is Ipoh nang too... and that transpires our meet-up and we chose this place for our rendezvous.... 
Irene suggested this place O'Days and I am so glad she did...
It is my second time here in this place.... 
And there are much more varieties compared to the last time I came... 
I arrived first and she came soon after.. 
I could recognize her immediately when she entered and vice versa....
Well, easy only after all, which lady sits alone and which lady comes in alone, right?  LOL... 
Before we began our "questioning", we ordered some desserts over our chat... 
Since both of us had a good heavy breakfast, we just wanted something light... 
And we settled for these... quality kuehs... 
They cost RM1.50 each.. no joke!
Three of these... RM4.50...
Mini Otak Otak... RM2.50
And two glasses of tangerine... not sure how much...
Cos the tab was on Irene.... 
And for those who doesn't know Irene, here she is!
If curious, this is Her Blog.
Thank you Irene for taking off your precious time to meet Reanaclaire... 
And for the Sweet Temptation's Treat.... 
Yes, do keep in touch for more meet-ups, K!!
I thought I would be skipping dinner after those sweet desserts... 
But no, the temptation for fried rice was too great!
Ended up "walloping" a plate of my fried rice before I finally call it a Day....
*patting my tummy*
A very productive and foodful day indeed!

  1. Hahahah! Claire, you beat me to it. I have a few more minutes before I need to get ready for another meet-up with another friend. So I thought I'd check to see if you have a new post. It sure was a great time meeting you and getting to know you in person. Somehow it was like meeting an old friend, coz I already know quite a bit about you from your blogs.

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…
