A Long Flight To Aberdeen By KLM

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY..

I took a long flight all the way from Ipoh to Aberdeen ALONE, all by myself... Am I clever?  Says who?? LOL... Nothing great but for me, I think I have achieved a milestone.  LOL.. More to come after travelling alone for the first time, the ice is broken.... finally.

From Ipoh to the KLIA, it took nearly 4 hours to reach due to the jam in the evening, thank God I started out early and I reached the airport half an hour before the counter is opened. Just nice to settle down and then checked in my big luggage.  Went to the premier lounge to have a light dinner and waited for another hour before boarding time.  Up on the plane, I spent my time watching two movies, most of the time, my eyes were closing and I guess the movies were watching me instead.  Food on flight was not to my taste as usual, not their fault but mine, of course... never like to eat the main meals on board except for the cakes or ice cream.  LOL..

Fast forward, after 12 hours of flight from KL to Amsterdam on transit then to Aberdeen, I arrived safely, Thank God for journey mercies and feeling super hungry by then!

The airport was under renovation... and I think I was the first one non EU to come out.. 
How did I know that?
Cos my bag was the first one to come out from the belt! LOL..
From the airport to where hungry tummies go.... 
It is called Frankie And Benny's..
We were the early birds... 
By the time we left, all the booths were occupied... 
We had Spaghetti with Meatballs...
Yes, I could finish all that!
And sweet potato fries... 
There goes my waistline!
Alright, we actually shared this set... 
Must leave some space for dinner!
My first meal in Aberdeen...
Glad to be here again!

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 …
