Dinner At Lawan Kuda, Supper At Old Town, Ipoh

FRIENDS FROM RAWANG CAME ALL THE WAY TO IPOH for the weekend... Seeing them means Food, not just for the three meals but Food for the whole day through...

For dinner we drove a forty minutes journey out of Ipoh to Lawan Kuda near Gopeng.  My friends wanted to try the food at Peng Yew aka "Friends" restaurant.  Thanks to Nancy, she made a reservation with the restaurant in the afternoon.  We thought the place would be crowded on a weekend but to our surprise, we were the first customers when we arrived around 6.00pm... Indeed we were the early diners and by the time we left, the place was still not full as yet. 

The food was so-so only according to my friend, maybe she was expecting something more flavourful but it turned out the dishes were something like "homecooked" and not as tasty as she expected them to be.  I have been there a couple of times so there is nothing to expect... LOL... Just eat and be merry!
Famous for their Sang Yue wine soup... 
Everyone has their share abundantly... 
I like this better... Fish with spring onions and ginger... 
Not so salty too... 
Someone ordered Celery though not everyone likes this dish... LOL... 
Stinky beans is fine with me... 
This is a Bonus... Salted Mantis.. 
Everyone likes this dish.. though we were not kids anymore... 
This dish is "misordered"... 
Maybe it came out last when most of us have nearly finished our rice... 
So half of it were "packeted" home... 
The night was still young when we left....
So we went to old town to have some "cheers!"
Didn't know that this building looks spectacular in the night.... 
Han Chin Pet Soo... 
And we ended up posing with it... 
With my girls.... 
Our gang for the night... 
Cheers!!

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 …
