Birthday Dinner At STG, Ipoh

PRE CELEBRATION BIRTHDAY... started in Ipoh... it is not his actual day yet but since the three were back during the festive season, we might as well celebrate together.  We went to STG at Taman Chateau, a Tea House Cafe in a double storey bungalow turned cafe with a nice homely ambiance.  The ground floor was already full and reservations were being booked in advance and we were ushered to the first floor, up the wooden stairs, plank flooring to a very nice room which reminded me of my childhood days when I stayed in a shophouse in town. 

We browsed through the menu and ended up ordering one main dish for each of us followed by starters such as soup and escargots... Oh gosh, what are escargots?  I just ordered never realizing there are actually from the snail family!  Nevertheless, we ended up eating one each, they really looked like giant snails to me, stuffed with some cheese and spices and we have to "poke" the flesh out of their hard shells. 
Hot to our touch... that is the consolation... 
Wild mushroom soup and bisque soup.. something like lobster... 
A very funny taste and we did not really like it... 
However I like my pasta with scallops...
Very tasty... they suit my taste buds.. 
Andy's friend ordered Seafood Carbonara... 
My girl's Baked Salmon... very nicely done too.. 
Juicy and not dried... 
Aaron's Lamb Shank... 
Quite a big portion.. 
And come to think of it now, one dish is missing!
How come?
This picture was not "planned"... LOL.. 
 
These certainly are.... 
All in all, we had a nice time... 
Regardless of the bill that came right in the end... 
It cost over RM300... LOL!

  3. Pasta with scallops is my favourite too and not many restaurants would serve like this. You still look radiant and young like their siblings.

    I am also curious to visit this place & area too as I have fondest memories growing up & visiting my Tai Koo's house in Taman Chateau. Her hubby used to be a teacher at SMI and had sold their house long ago.

  4. Oooo...lamb shank looks good. Gee!!! After all this time, he's been abroad, I would think he would give western fare a miss while he is home. Lovely family photos! My favourite would be the one with you sitting down. Is that Fernie? Doesn't look like her! Maturing?

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
