Three States Before Chinese New Year

FROM SG BULOH TO IPOH THEN TO PENANG...

These short trips were made from one Sunday to another Sunday.... We spent four days in Sg. Buloh, traveled back to Ipoh for two nights and then went up north to Penang for one night.  The trip up north was impromptu, since I was not the driver, I just followed the young ones for a night stay.  What I worried was the traffic jam, I was expecting the worst but to our relief and delight, the drive to Penang was very smooth.  Of course, inside the island itself, the traffic was super heavy, this time we played smart, we used Grab car services to ferry us around...
A short walk around the 1-U mall... 
Came here for Go Noodles and Bubble tea... 
Very nice feel of the CNY decorations..
In the evening, we had our dinner at Hakka Ren Restaurant... 
We ordered 5 dishes.. somehow only these three were taken...
Must be due to the reason that we were too hungry by then!
Back in Ipoh, we went to court... badminton court!
Two hours of sweat... sauna for us....
For dinner we had Vietnamese food... 
Vietnamese salad...
And the rest of the dishes... I did not manage to take... 
yes, super hungry again!
From Ipoh to Penang... 113, Lebuh Melayu... 
This place is a Must for us... 
Again, no food pictures cos I posted this place a couple of times already... 

We took Grab services from hotel... Cost only RM5.. better than driving and walking!
And for coffee lovers, this was taken at Nordin Street, 
right in front of Cititel Express Hotel
where we stayed for one night.... 
We booked a family room for 4 of us, cost around RM270.00.
The next day we checked out around noon and reached Ipoh in less than 3 hours.

  2. You sure get around, don't you? But then again, it is so easy for you all there, such nice highways...not like our inter-town roads, all ruined by the half-dead, not really moving construction of the Pan-Borneo Highway. Used to take one and half hours to get to my girl's school in the jungle, now 2 and half, 5 hours return, 10 hours every week on the torturing roller coaster drive.

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
