Family Pre-Reunion Lunch At Yishensu Restaurant, Ipoh

GET-TOGETHER REUNION LUNCH...

It is a good idea to get together whenever we can, not just during the Chinese New Year eve... Whenever the opportunity arises, we siblings meet up for a meal before we depart our separate ways... Our late parents are not around anymore, we lead our own separate lives with our families and in-laws. 

Since we will be eating together for this coming CNY reunion dinner, we got together last week to have a nice vegetarian lunch and fellowship with one another.  It is one of the rare moments we have together as a family.  Thanks to our parents' upbringing... we have a strong bonding with one another...

As for the dishes in Yishensu Restaurant, they were nice but a bit too sweet for us...

Yam with assorted nuts and vegetables...
Mixed vegetarians with fermented beancurd...
This dish was finished in no time and we ordered the same dish again...
Their signature beancurd...
This is supposed to be Mutton Curry.. vegetarian style... 
Buns with "BBQ pork" vegetarian style...
A bit too sweet for us... 
All these dishes came to around RM170 including brown rice and drinks....
My Dear Ones... 
Missing you, M!

  1. The barbecue sandwiches look really good! The first dish is interesting, some kind of edible container. So all of these are your siblings? You are blessed to have so many!!

  2. I have seen this YiShenSu Vegetarian Restaurant at One Utama but have not eaten there. I like the look of the beancurd dish. Don't like those too sweet dishes that you have described.

    1. If they were not so sweet, then it would be best!

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…
