First Day Of CNY At Pakeeza Restaurant, Ipoh

WOW... THIS CHINESE NEW YEAR IS REALLY SOMETHING.... It has left me so busy that I neglected my blog for the past couple of days! LOL...  Yes, busy, busy exercising my mouth and not my fingers, I love all the snacks for this CNY, I love all the food that was served on the dinner tables, I love staying up late to bond with my family members, way past my bedtime... and now the adverse effects are coming up, I cannot deny I am getting old already.  It is time to slow down with those tempting crispy snacks, I feel something swelling up in  my mouth already!  Tsk..tsk.. heaty, heaty... 

Our first day of CNY, we went to Pakeeza Restaurant for lunch.... a very wise choice cos most of the Chinese restaurants were packed to the brim with limited time for the meal.  Cannot linger on for more than two hours.
Our orders consisted of Mutton, chicken, egg plants and bitter gourd... 
plus Mango Lassi aka yogurt... 
Our partial orders... minus the Basmati rice and another order of Naan with Potato fillings.... 
The restaurant was also packed when we were half way through lunch.... 
We wouldn't mind coming here again... 
Somebody picked up the tab of RM117 and he said "Hey, not bad!"

  4. It is so good to see you together with all of your children! Something that does not happen too much. Claire, you will never be old in my eyes. You are fun loving and beautiful! I think we all feel old when we have eaten too much! I have done this many times! That potato filled naan, I could eat the whole thing! I love both bread and potatoes.

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…
