Yesterday Once More - Reminisce

ICE CREAM ADDICT...  And I think I need to slow down.... Instead of going out for desserts, I bought a small tub of La Creme just for "emergency."  LOL... 

Anyone remember Cold Storage Snack Bar?  That was in the 1960s, 70s and I stayed near the Cold Storage in town.  Those days money was very tight, I remember I could only see other people enjoying ice cream in the snack bar instead of having one myself.  NO money to even go in except for very rare occasions, which is perhaps once per year.... not sure who gave the treat, but I do remember savoring the chicken wings until the very last... even the soft bones were not spared!  LOL .... Those were the days... 

Now.... it is a different story.  We can afford but the quality is not the same anymore like those years ago.  NO more Cold Storage snack bar thus no more creamy ice cream and fried chicken wings which I could still remember too well the taste.... funny, I could forget who and who but I could still remember very well the taste of those yesteryear food!  Does that happen to you or is it just me?  

This is Sidewalk Ice Cream Lounge in Ipoh.... 
One of the oldest as far as I can remember...
It was in Ipoh Garden initially...
My kids grow up eating from here... 1990s....
Shifted to Ipoh Garden East not too long ago....
I only found out in Facebook.... 
I think it is one of the oldest ice cream lounge in Ipoh... 
Good to know they are still keeping up....
I went there for a dose of ice cream a couple of weeks ago....
For ice cream, of course....
We ordered these... Garlic toast... 
While one of my friends had tea... 
I had my Ice Cream fix.... 
Two scoops only...
Vanilla and Chocolate... 
With some toppings... 
Quite similar to the Cold Storage style...
Reminisce.... hmmmm....

  7. I seldom go to cold storage when they were at Jaya shopping center before the renovation so I don't know about the ice cream bar but anything with ice cream, please count me in.
