The Chinese New Year Journey Down South

TIME TO REPORT BACK TO WORK AFTER THE FESTIVE SEASON....

After a long break, it is going down south again, we need to start work in order to bring food on the table.  Oh, not me though, I have my share of working already for the past thirty years or more.  It is time for me to sit back and see others work instead.  Aha.... no, I am just kidding...... Of course, I still work, only difference is that now there is no more boss hovering behind me, I am a so-called Home Minister or in other words a "Housemaid?"  LOL...  I am paid to manage the homes, I clean, I mop, I wash, I cook... these are endless work which I do not really like but have to....  The only consolation is that I can do at my own pace and time and get paid regardless... LOL.....

So... here I am with my Two Bosses... wherever they go, I follow.... This time I do not have to drive, I just have to sit back and relax for a few hours journey.   We stopped in Sg. Buloh for a break and we went to take the most expensive food court meal we ever had in our whole life!  Quote from son.
The Trio going on the journey with us.... 

Wherever they go, I just follow.... 
Stopped for a break in Sg Buloh corner coffeeshop...and had these....
And we also ordered this...
Fresh Garoupa with noodles...
Each of us ordered a bowl.... 
And a big bowl of Fish Balls.... 
For five bowls of noodles plus a bowl of Fish Head and Fish Balls, 
the bill came to a whooping RM160!
Believe it or not, it is true.... 
The lady was laughing when she collected the money but certainly not us... 
Well, I say it again... must be the Chinese New Year prices...
Then we proceeded on our journey after the "heavy" lunch.... 
Raining at certain parts...
Anyway, all was good, Thank God...
We reached our destination around 7pm just in time for dinner!

  5. I dis not know you had taken a job. But now you can choose your hours, and that is great! Here, we call these house tenders maids. One of my good friends does this. You can make pretty good money, and it is a good job for retired people. Being helpful is always good!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
