Crispy Pork Knuckle At Bonnie's Dining Place, Bercham, Ipoh

SAW A NEW PLACE ADVERTISED IN FB... and quickly informed my Ipoh foodie friend about it.  Together we arranged to try it out one fine evening and the day finally came.  Initially we thought of having something light but ended up ordering something really "heavy" ... The place is called Bonnie's Dining at Bercham which serves western and asian food.

Normally I would opt for Asian food but in this place, one must try their Crispy Pork Knuckle.  I know I must not take too much meat but then.... the temptation was just too strong for me to resist. Eventually we ended up ordering just two dishes from the menu and we shared among ourselves, the three of us.  Phew.... at least I do not have to do double workout the next day!

While waiting, we looked around and captured a few pictures....
A painting on Roosters was displayed at the side of the shop.... 
No patrons at the time we arrived.. 
We had the whole place to ourselves till much later... 
We ordered a plate of Smoked Duck Aglio Olio... RM16 something... 
Portion was quite big... I tried a bit of the noodles and a piece of meat....
Kind of saving space for the Pork Knuckle!
And it finally arrived after we finished the noodles.... RM39.90
This dish needs time to get it crispy again, I guess... 
Some special sauce to go with the knuckle... something sweet, sour and spicy... 
Nice combination!
Portion is not enormously big... 
Well, probably I am a Big Fan of this.... 
Normally I will skip the mashed potatoes... 
But surprisingly, they are very well marinated and suitable for my buds!
I ended up eating most of it... sorry, friends!
Next time no sharing with me, right?
LOL...

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…
