Foodie Trail In Penang

IT WAS A SHORT TRIP TO PENANG, other than durians and some simple food, I was back in Ipoh on a Sunday afternoon.  We did not go to anywhere special this time, just had our usual Koay Teow Th'ng, Laksa, rice, fried noodles combination and I think that was about all.  One of my friends came all the way from KL and we managed to meet up at Ka Bee along the jetty in Penang.  She was on a foodie trip with her friends and she recommended me some shops to go to and what to eat!  LOL... That shows I am not as "efficient" as her, the further she is, the more she knows!  LOL...
Recommended is the Chee Cheong Fun at Genting cafe, Island Glades..
Very popular, have to queue if "packet back" otherwise.. just order and sit down...
Nice texture with a generous portion of sauce... RM3.90
How nice if there are some fried fish balls to go with this!
Wanton noodles to go with Roasted Duck...
These two were taken in Butterworth near the ferry station... RM25
At Ka Bee Cafe Jetty in the evening.... weekends are very crowded...
It is all about fish... RM14
Fish Tomyam....
Fried Chai Yee Jai...RM16
A plate of mini sized vege...
And the high cholesterol Fish Eggs, my favourite!
Me and my buddy friend!
Non stop foodie trail... 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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
