Bak Kut Teh Hin Hock In Tampoi, Johor

BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY WITH THE SKY UP BLUE...
We took a nice drive to Tampoi for lunch, a dear friend recommended that the Bak Kut Teh is famous there.  I am not sure I have been there before or not, it looks pretty familiar though when I reach there.  Well, don't ask me how come I don't remember, really I do not but my son said I have been, only that they have shifted from a run-down shed to a bigger looking neater space nearer to the main road.  No wonder....

The place was crowded to the brim when we reached around 1pm, if we want to avoid the crowd, best to go either at 11am or after 2pm.  Anyway, as the saying goes, if we can't beat them, let's join them!  Anyway, orders were made at the front and in about half hour or so, the food arrived....
Full to the brim.... 
There is a small stall outside the shop selling Muar Otak Otak... RM1.10 for each...
These were better than the ones we had in Pontian the other week... 
Fish flesh is more visible than the previous time.... 
Then our dishes arrived..
Fresh steamed fish which was on almost every table.... or should I say... all...
One look and I know this fish is very fresh... ahemmmm.... RM45
And the garnishings... just look at their generous fried garlic!
My girl could easily finish it all!
Then their signature Bak Kut Teh... RM20
We refilled the soup two times.... 
A small plate of Kiam Chye... *salted vegetables* RM3.00
And the three dishes came to around RM79....
With Clear blue skies, we headed back to our little nest to laze......
After all, it is a Sunday....

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…
