Surprise Birthday Dinner At STG Boutique Cafe, Ipoh

IT HAPPENED ON THE EVE OF MY BIRTHDAY...

I received a message in the afternoon, inviting me to join this lovely family for dinner at 7pm in the evening.  I cordially said Yes, I would love to go with them, not knowing where they were going actually.  But I did ask whether it is a formal or informal and my friend's reply was, "just be casual and I would be wearing Bermuda shorts".... LOL.. Sounds good to me, I like casual wear too!

It was drizzling that evening and on the way, we went to the railway station to pick up a lovely lady who was coming back from Kuala Lumpur.  Then we adjourned for our dinner at STG Boutique Cafe in old town. This is my second time to this place, the first time was a few years back if I am not mistaken.  Anyway, the ambience was beautiful and cozy...unfortunately I didn't go round taking pictures of the place.  Shy ma...
Christmas tree at the corner.... 
Managed to take this from the corner I was sitting... 
As for the food, this is Mine!
Orange Grilled Chicken... 
A better light and angle from another camera... 
Lamb Shank for the younger generation... 
Managed to take two dishes in one picture... 
One is Braised Duck (if not mistaken) and Tomyam meehoon with Fried Chicken.. 
Ahhh... another photo from another camera... 
A bit too bright... 
Then when everything was eaten up and the table cleared...
The staff came out singing...
Happy Birthday and holding these in their hands.... 
Sparkling "champagne"...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 …
