I Am A Traveling Nomad

REACHED IPOH IN THE EVENING after more than 24 hours journey.. My journey started from Sacramento, a two hours drive to San Francisco, then a 17 hours flight to Kuala Lumpur, excluding transit at Hongkong for two hours, reaching Kuala Lumpur at 12.30pm in the afternoon.  From the airport, we "hired" a driver to take us back to Ipoh, another three hours drive... and finally stepping into my home sweet home at around 4.30pm... Phewwww.... Thank GOD for journey mercies and smooth journey all the way back.... good to be home again after 90 days....

Oh wait!! I spoke too soon... In less than 48 hours in Ipoh, I was "whisked off" again!  Yes, I am Not a robot but it happened this way... The next moment, I found myself in Penang, I was told not to worry, she would be doing all the driving, all I need to do is to sit back and relax.  Relax?  No way, the moment she started to drive, I have to sit up and be on the look-out!  LOL...

At least I spent two nights in Ipoh before leaving my nest again... I didn't even have time to unload my suitcases, my goodness... all I did was to pack a few belongings and off we went....
And here I am.. sitting up, eyes open and looking at the road.... 
Thank goodness, no jet lag... *slept a lot on the plane*
Second Bridge is very quiet... 
Good, no traffic jam...
And while my girl attended to some functions,
 I took some simple meals such as these.... 
Penang Hokkien mee... 
Most missed... Laksa without shrimp paste...
Chives Dumplings...
Durian ice cream!!
Reminded me of Leatherby's in Sacramento...
Ok, don't compare..... 
This is only RM3.50... so I won't comment anything... LOL...
hmmmm.....What shall I say...... 
By the way... 
is Wonder Woman still flying around the movie theater?

  2. Wah! You are one super woman! For me 2 nights in Penang left me tired and sleepy!

  3. Indeed you are a nomad! I would pengsan like that. Me is no wonder woman. Good for you that you can sleep on the plane. I was wide awake on the way there and back.

    1. I took half a tablet for motion sickness so I was fine... otherwise will be like Zombie!

  4. Bet you missed our local delights so much while you were in the US. Hmmm...Penang again. Gotta go regularly to handle your financial matters there? Your millions in the bank?

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
