No Shopping But Bonding

 NO MORE SHOPPING FOR NOW... Our bags are full to the brim, my two suitcases are reaching 50lbs and that is the maximum.  My hand luggage is 20lbs and it should be 15lbs max.  I have another backpack on my back and a handbag in front.  Sigh.. ladies like me... we never stop learning, right?  I mean I cannot resist buying even though my bag is bloated, I still want to find the smallest space I can find to chuck the loots in.  Eventually, I have to "sacrifice" some of things behind, my old clothes plus a few new ones.

So... these few days, we are very "behaved."  Instead of shopping, we spent our time eating... that was in my previous post... and we went to pamper ourselves doing pedicure, going to our friend's house for good food and company... and for the remaining time, we have family bonding playing "mahjung", chatting at the patio in the evening and going for a "holler-coaster"ride around the vicinity.... Good girls, right?  LOL...
Some of the Food prepared by the hostess and a dish or two by us...

Our Asian friends... 
Being pampered instead of going shopping till dropping...
Showing off their well done work and not our elephant feet.... LOL....
Family bonding time at the patio..... 
And now.... shall we go for a drive???
I promise I will drive safely....
Unfortunately the Car Owner said No, I cannot be the driver...
Instead I shall be a passenger instead... 
Get belted up, girl!!
And the Holler-Coaster began... 
Taped it all on video... with all the ooohhh...ahhhhsss.. screamsssss...
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 …
