Songs And Music At Take A Break Lounge, Ipoh

SONGS OF THE 60S, 70S, 80S...

When I heard that there is a live band at Take A Break lounge only on Friday evenings, I was all for it!  Come Friday, I called up the lounge just to confirm whether it is on and the time it opens on that evening.  I think we ended calling up three times, my sister and I... LOL... so much so when we sat down, the owner asked us whether one of us is called Claire... LOL...

From what I know, this lounge is opened from 12pm till 5.30pm on normal days.  The food served are kind of special, especially the Ona Laksa.  There is none sold outside like the way they serve here.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of that, three of us were engrossed in our food and drinks plus the lovely ambience with our favorite songs sung by a really-good singer called Andrew.  Now that I know that there is nice songs sung on Fridays, I do not mind going whenever each Friday comes!  LOL..
Introducing Andrew, the singer... 
And also owner of the lounge Take A Break... 
He sings mostly in English...
If you love Bee Gees, you will love him too!
This is Carman who croons the Cantonese, Mandarin and even Japanese songs!
At times, they duet.... 
Recommended drink... Root Beer with ice cream.. .
And we introduced ourselves as the Three Sisters...
And we were called Three Degrees for some moments.... LOL... 
After 11pm, they open mic to the public.... 
Alas, no, we the Three Degrees did not sing... 
We did not want to chase away the crowd.... 
We just sit back, relax and have a good time!


  1. Now you make me miss my Friday night. Haha. Those were the days. Clubbing, dancing and karaokeing. Alas, now my days are with kids at home, screaming and scolding. Haha.

  2. Remember to take me there one Friday evening! Lol!

  3. I am sure you all will not chase away the crowd when you 3 sing.

  5. WHAT????? You did not sing???? Aiyor!!!! You must be getting old - I remember a time when you would sing your heart out all night long, hard for others to get the chance at the mike. LOL!!!

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

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
