Complete Meal At Old Fisherman's Grotto, Monterey

THE BUZZER SHOOK IN MY SISTER'S HAND... and we quickly walked back to the restaurant for our lunch.  We were feeling very hungry by then.  Yes, the restaurant was full, the food must be good compared to other restaurants which were quite vacant.  The one we chose is called Old Fisherman's Grotto and the staff was really nice and friendly too.

We were given a free appetizer after our main dish, we were served desserts, they were on the house too... We only have to pay for our main dish... reason?  I think it has something to do with ex-marine officers for serving the country.  :)
Display at the front of Old Fisherman's Grotto...
Fried Calamari and Artichokes...
Clam Chowder was very nice too... creamy.. the way I love it!
I ordered Rock Sea Bass or something like that... 
Fish with potatoes and vegetables... around $17
Montgomery Fish...mango taste-like with sweet potatoes and vege... $25
We ordered two of the Sea bass...
Pasta with seafood.. Salmon, shrimps and clams...
This one is a mixture of chicken, sausages and rice in cajun sauce... 
As for desserts, we have this... Chilean something...LOL..
Each of us were supposed to be given one cake each but we were too full...
And we just ordered three instead of five though they were free  :)
This is very nice.... but I have forgotten the name....
Tiramisu...
And finally, our rounded faces after the heavy lunch....
The bill came to around $140 for the five of us...
Next.. we got to shed our calories!

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 …
