Dinner At Tian Lai Garden, Gelang Patah, Johor

RECEIVED A MESSAGE from my cousin in Singapore stating that he will be coming with his family to JB the next day.  Great!!  I was all ready to welcome them and my cousin kept in touch with me all the way from Singapore till the customs.  After that, no more news from him... Alamak!!  His data must have shut off by the time they crossed over to Malaysia.  How eh... I have not confirmed where to meet and all that with him.  He also must have forgotten about the wifi when he drove over.

Anyway, I took the chance and drove all the way to AEON Bukit Indah, they surely have to pass by there on the way.  We did mention AEON but never confirm where and when to wait.  So I estimated... I parked the car and waited at the grocery entrance.  After some 15 minutes or so, a call from Messenger came in.  Phew... they were just outside AEON at Block D.  Great!! True enough, they did not have data when they came in to Malaysia and one of my cousin quickly subscribed to a plan just opposite the mall.  So all turned out well....

I took them for lunch at Tea Garden, just opposite... and after that, they came over to my little nest to look see and rest.... After a couple of hours, we drove to AEON again, this time to do some shopping and I also ended up buying a piece from Padini. :)  By then it was almost 5.30pm and my cousin suggested going to Gelang Patah for dinner.  Great!!  I have not been there before.... Let's GO!

We went to Tian Lai Seafood Garden along Jalan Leong Bee, it was the first time for them too, using Google Maps, it took around 20 minutes to reach.  Nice timing, no crowd yet and by the time we finished our dinner, the place was fully occupied.
My sengat picture of the entrance... 
Looks like it is a house being renovated to cater its seafood business...
All the dishes were recommended by the "Loe Sai" *Captain*
Curry Pork Ribs in Claypot...
My picture didn't do any credit to the tasty curry....
The curry was thick and not over spicy.... 
Their signature yellow beancurd.. it was yellowish inside... 
Maybe made from pumpkin.... I didn't ask... 
Spicy dry chilies clams.... 
Ching Loong Choy.... 
And the best was the Claypot Fish Bass... 
Thick skin full of collagen, so they say.... 
The meal cost around RM170 or so with drinks and rice... 
My auntie and cousins... 
Thanks for the treat, folks!!

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…
