A Seven Hours Itinerary In Ipoh

ON A WEEKEND... and that was Saturday, just yesterday, two of my friends came from the north.  It was just a day trip.  They arrived at 11.30am, parked their car in my house and I became their tour guide for the day.  LOL... Before that, I did some research on what to eat, they wanted local food and I try to squeeze as much as I could in a matter of few hours.

Firstly, I took them to town to try the famous chicken rice, Pak Kong is the name of the shop.  We ordered a two persons portion for the four of us.  Need to save some space in our tummy for other food.  No photos taken, we ordered a mixed combination of roasted chicken, steamed chicken and roasted pork, plus two side dishes of Achah and salted vegetables (kiam chye).

After we finished our lunch, we walked around the vicinity to get some food stuff such assalted chicken and Ipoh famous cookies.  Next, I took them to old town where the tourists go... Concubine Lanes... got some egg tarts and iced white coffee from Nam Heong to drink in the car.  Then we proceeded to get more goodies, this time from JJ rolls and cakes.  Tourists do not leave Ipoh without these.  

Since Ipoh is famous for white coffee, I took them to Chiang Jiang for a short rest and some cooling air.  We ordered some snacks to go with the white coffee.  The day trip did not end yet, I continued driving to the famous The Big Tree to let them try the fried stuff, Ipoh famous fish paste to go with laksa and curry soup.  By the time we finished, it was almost 4.30pm... time to go home for a short rest before dinner.

Rested an hour in my house before we stuffed ourselves again, for dinner I took them to the famous restaurant in Ipoh, Public Mun Choong.  Finished our dinner around 7pm and it was time for them to go back to Penang.  Come to think of it, much can be achieved in a matter of 7 hours!
Tea time snack at Chiang Jiang...

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
