Our Homecooked Seafood Dinner For Four

HOMECOOKED... but not cooked by yours truly!  I rather be a "supplier" than a cook, it is better to stay that way.  LOL... 

Another one Rice-less meal for 4 persons.  All we got to do is just finish the 4 dishes, no leftovers were allowed.  And that suits us just fine!  We had our early dinner as usual, nothing later than 5pm and by 6pm, we would be out walking in the mall to shed off calories.  Alas, it is not going to be like that for this week onwards.  Since another outbreak in Kedah and Sabah last week, we have to be vigilant of our moves again... sigh... so much for thinking that Mr. Covid was under control.... 

This meal was taken way before the Election in Sabah... we were so happy then, we thought of having state to state holiday but now we have second thoughts.  Just when we thought it was safer to move around and now this again.... we have to take extra precaution again.  Less meet-ups and more own home cooking from now on.... 
Four dishes for the blessed four...
Big tiger prawns bought at the night market...
RM45 per kilo and there were 15 big prawns...
My friend cook half and kept half for another day...
Steamed eggplants planted from her own garden...
Eat without fear of pesticides....
Long time I did not eat this type of clams... aka Lala...
My friend did a fantastic job cooking this....
She put in lime, kafir leaves, chilies and coconut water!
So sweet... no gravy left by the time the clams were finished...
Our seafood dinner taken a couple weeks ago...
Now all I can do is to salivate...
When shall we have this type of dinner 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 …

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?

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…
