The Long Journey From South To North

TIME TO HIT THE ROADS AGAIN... Yes, our ten days stay in Johor has come to an end.  We woke up early in the morning, packed our stuff into the car, bade farewell to our little nest and adjourned to have our breakfast before we headed for the highway.  During our stay, we did not have Dim Sum till the very last moment, my girl suggested going to Changman.  According to my son, prices have gone up steeply... oh well, nothing surprising, everything seems to have gone up and I told him that we would go to check our the prices... we simply cannot leave JB without going for our regular place of Dim Sum... 
 My girl's favourite BBQ dumplings... she finished the three of them... 
I took a small bite only.. they are mini-sized anyway...
I had Chicken Koay Teow soup... my girl took a small portion.... 
Steamed Chee Cheong Fun with BBQ pork...
And a plate of three mini egg tarts...
Before we left, we also packed some cakes and dumplings... 
Just in case we get hungry on the way... 
We started our journey around 10.30am.... 
Weather was good, thank God... traffic was smooth.... 
And my girl drove 3/4 of the five hours plus journey... 
Young people's eyes are always sharper, right!
We reached Ipoh around 4pm... 
This is the first time both of us drove alone without the guys.... 
For the journey to and fro, the expenses came to around RM250...

  4. 5 hours? Wowwww!!! That's a long time but then again, you have nice highways there. Here, you would probably need 10 hours, same distance.

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?

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…
