SkySymphony And Chan Poh Chu In Gentings!

AS IF IT IS NOT COLD ENOUGH IN IPOH... GENTINGS WE WENT!!

The weather these days are pretty cooling here, not only in Ipoh but many parts in Malaysia especially the coastal areas.  For the first time since many months back, I saved electricity for one night without the air con, the night air was so nice and cooling with the windows opened.

Oh, I have digressed... In this post, it is about my three days getaway to Gentings!

This time we drove up, parked the car in Awana Sky Avenue... walked a bit around the Gentings Premium Outlet stores, had the most expensive ice cream cone at Godiva for RM25 and off we went up to the hotel via Cable Car... Each ticket is RM8 each...

As usual, we stayed at the cheapest hotel, that is the First World, the largest hotel in the world!  The place was full of people and more people, throughout the whole day and night.  It is the busiest lobby I have ever seen so far... there is no night nor day here... Checking in is pretty easy on the many self kiosks at the lobby... no long queues and waiting, just have to slot in my ID and everything is done, room receipt and key given at the same kiosk.  Quickly we put our bags in the room and out we went to explore the newly opened Sky Avenue.

Staying in First World is very convenient...up the escalator and everything is there... this time we stood there to admire the spectacular SkySymphony!  It is a free-to-public performance showcasing an extraordinary orchestra of audio, visual and motion graphics programming.  With 1,001 winch balls suspended from a four-storey high ceiling, each performance is accompanied by cinematic visuals and original music mix.





Show ended within 5-10 minutes.
Next highlights on the screen showed this!
Presenting the actress of yester-years...
Chan Poh Chu..
I wonder how many of us can still remember her...

And I am one of them... 
Too bad I could not be able to make it for her concert on the 20.1.2018!!

  1. Yes. Pretty cold lately especially today. Cloudy and occasional rain.

    Oh. Not sure I heard her song or not. But I know she is an actress and I watched some of her drama.

  4. Wow! I have never seen anything like this Sky Symphony! Is it a hologram...or maybe a giant screen? What a grand idea to have the kiosks, we have nothing like this! Long lines at fancy hotels. Can't wait to see the rest of your adventure!

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 …
