Country Roads, Take Me Home

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING and had our breakfast at Star Dust Casino restaurant, just five minutes drive away from our hotel, Silver Legacy.  The breakfast meal is only around $4.99 per person and it comes in a complete set... each of us took one set though I am surprised at myself that I could finish one whole meal by myself!!  American Breakfast... never before I ate such a Big Meal... Since there were six of us, they gave us a private room...

After our heavy breakfast, we went for a day trip to Virginia City, an old cowboy town famous for its gold mine those days.... and on the way, the song Country Roads came to my mind....Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains.. Shenandoah River.....
Our all time American Breakfast.... 
My order is the first top left... Nice?
And our journey started... from highway to the mountains...
Passing residential houses on the way....
And going UP and UP....
Very high UP in fact....
Taken from the moving car...
And we stopped half way to breathe in the scenery....
We followed the cyclist down the steps.... 
Going to the edge of the mountain....
To capture this scene from the top...
The man who built this.... 
Dr. D.M. Geiger.... 
I have to be very careful though.... cannot afford to slip....
Yes, I need some assistance to go up the steps....to the very top!
Blue Ridge Mountains..
The wind was really strong...
\
That was the highest I could go.... 
The wind was heard howling... 
And I quickly went down the steps before I get blown away...
If Not for the heavy American Breakfast, I Might be blown...
LOL....

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 …
