Our Virgin Drive To City Square, Johor

JOHOR CITY SQUARE?

Oh, oh, I thought she was kidding when she wanted to go there this morning... just the two of us who have never drove outside our residential area before.  All we know is that City Square is in the Johor city and how to go there, we have to rely on our gadget, Waze and nothing else.  And so.. she dares.. and I have to go along with the "dare"...

Before we started off, I have to doubly confirm with her.. make sure her phone has battery, mine has only 20% left cos I did not expect to go to the city this morning.  And off we set out... with the nice steady voice of the lady directing us all the way to the city where it is known as the "Cowboy town" those days.  Really.. why cowboy, I wonder....

Yes, we reached City Square without any hassle, thank God.. smooth drive all the way, no, I was not the driver, only the navigator... She is the "darer" one... actually come to think of the drive now, it is quite easy, all the way straight to the city and back, but with the Voice, we are more confident.
Disney products are on promotion at the lobby... 
No, we did not shop first.. 
Our stomachs were "growling" for Food.. and it was almost 11.30am!
We went looking for Go Noodles shop at Level 6
BUT
It is only opening on the 9 September!  
Someone received wrong info, for sure.... 
We chose Din Tai Fung instead... 
We don't have that in Ipoh... 
I told my girl.. No sharing this time...
Each of us must have one main meal.... 
This time we must try their famous Fried Rice with Shrimps... RM21.70
Indeed there are lots of them hidden inside... more than 10 shrimps, I think...
I looked at the table next to us.. 
Theirs are evenly shaped.. ours are out of shape... LOL...
She ordered a bowl of Lai Meen with vegetables n meat dumplings.... RM20.60
Huge portions actually.... 
But we managed to finish them all.... 
Oh yeah.. we must have some desserts after our meal.... 
Sesame Peanut Balls for RM9.50...
Yes, we shared this equally too...
Cos we love them!!
ahhhh... That is definitely One Heavy Meal... 
Will definitely last us till dinner... 
So what's for dinner? 
Guess.... it starts with B... 
LOL...

  6. hah..hah.. memang your fried rice was out of shape! There is a Din Tai Fung at 1-U and I find the taste of the food is quite mild for me. I like my food more jazzy if you know what I mean.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
