Showers Of Blessings For My Red Babe

SOUTHBOUND DRIVE...

His annual leave has come to an end... time to go back and "work hard for the money", so he said.  :)
We packed our stuff into my 12 years old Red Babe and said a prayer before we left Ipoh.  Prayed that the journey would be smooth and the car would endure the 6 hours drive back to the very tip of Southern Malaysia. 

Started off filling our tummies with noodles at around 9.30am, drove to Nancy Chong's bakery to collect a One Kg Cake and by the time we left Ipoh, it was almost 11am.... With lots of goodies in the car, we were not stopping for any lunch along the way, only except to the rest house for a couple of times...
Weather was good... 
Red Babe car was behaving very well too.... 
Until....
We reached Johor toll around 4pm....
It started to rain quite heavily...
Andy winded down the mirror to pay for the Toll....
And then....
The window got stuck... 
It just wouldn't want to go UP.... 
Kaput!

Despite the heavy rain, we continued on driving...
With the window stuck like after the toll...
The rain sipped in on his side.... 
Thank God, our destination is not too far away... 
To fear or to laugh?
We opted for the latter.... 
Despite the rain, we reached our little nest.... 
And the best thing is...
The Window was fully UP by then!
Showers of Blessings into my Red Babe as she lands in Johor.... safely!

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
