Something Fishy In GP

Someone was feeling very hungry, 15 minutes before 1pm, Lynn was hurrying me to go for lunch, beh tahan already, she said... Cannot blame her, this morning she didn't follow us out for breakfast and thus the early call. Both she and I gathered up our our group (mar chai) and five of us headed off from the office...

"Where to?" the unpaid driver (ME) asked... "Why not try the newly opened food court in First Garden?", Nancy suggested. Oh, I didn't know the way, not my territory, but after a few twists and turns on the road, we finally reached the destination, the Golden Point aka GP in First Garden.

Really newly opened 29/10/2009

Golden Point

big complex, food court downstairs
exercising gym upstairs, i was told..

Kong and I walked round the food court
and ended up ordering something fishy...

one of them fish..waiting to be our "victim"

after 15 min. our dish arrived...

looked kind of plain, right?
but the taste was very different... fantastic!

Chef Elin's review of the fish...
"black beans with sugar, garlic, shallots.."

just rightly cooked, not dry, not raw either..
smooth texture with the original kind of taste..

after walloping one sizzling plate of mee
she can still manage some spoonful of rice..
including the fish and its tail

sucking and eating the fish bones.. LOL....

there, i told u, she sucked in all!!! poor fish....

now u see it...
and now u don't
no head, no tail... guess who have taken it all???

Though the fish cost RM24 with one plate of rice,
it was worth it, head and tail also missing already!


  1. like a piranha walloping a fish! lol

  2. Wallop including the bones? huhhhh dangerous Parlo people???

  3. Merryn: sharp teeth and all... hey, u used "exclamation mark" again! lol...

    Cheah: don't waste ma...hahhaaa.. parloh ppl, dont play play..

  4. when i saw the pictures i got hungry.
    i seldom eat fish here. fish here is always frozen which i don't like. it doesn't taste good when it is frozen.

  5. wah....lunch only leh, also eat so much like dinner?

  6. yummm......steam fish.....seems too good to be lunch

  7. looks very interesting...never had anything like it here. I had to chuckle about the gym upstairs, I would need to use it after I had a big lunch!

  8. just like Christopher says, lunch only lor, already so "foon fu" , these kind of dishes for me only can get during Kong Hee Fatt Choy..hahahahah

  9. FaYe: yes,fresh water fish tastes better unfrozen.. but if given no choice, we got to make do with frozen ones.. :)

    chris: one dish only lar for lunch.. no other dishes.. something light..

    eric: we just wanna try how it taste, so we ordered just one dish and try..nibbling..

    Cheryl: yeah..that was what i heard, either exercise first then wallop downstairs or the other way round...

    eugene: not foong foo dish only as i said..just to try out the fish..if good, next time bring my kids there..

  10. bones also gone????????? is best cooked simply....

  11. RM24!!! Quite expensive wor... but since the bone also gone, then you all 'dai fan' teehee...

  12. manglish: hehee.. can masuk guiness book of record.. missing bones..

    Agnes: that was what i tot too.. very expensive for a fish and one rice.. that was why my fren "sucked" the fish dry.. :)

  13. Nice place for eating and the fish is so fresh from the water!

  14. Wah... your friend Chef Elin, very efficient leh... must be so yummy, bones also must wallop habis!

  15. superman: fish was fresh but expensive.. right?

    Boeyjoey: mission impossible .. just for laughs..

  16. wow... ur blog now full of foodie pics =D making me so hungry =P

    even the fish looks good, even tho' i dun really eat much fish

  17. Wah..the fish look very nice with black bean. U all can reach the office on time after lunch? 1 hour only wo. Drive, find parking, order, eat, drive back to office (all in 1 hour), can meh?

  18. yanz: no happenings except on food, u see, go work, eat, work, home, sleep.. no clubbing, no small babies.. so at my age, no dating eat all i can and gain weight.. ouch!

    mNhL: amazing, right? this is IPOH life.. u go anywhere also, not much jam one.. reach within 10-15 min. makan... then come back by 2pm.. sometimes we go out 15 min yesterday, we r back by 2pm.. unlike KL..

  19. steam fish go with rice, so healthy lunch. :D

    RM24 is expensive but like you said, just to try out, if nice then can go again next time. :)

  20. Wah, nothing left...bones also kena steamed fish is real nice!

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


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…
