VIP Came To Ipoh Town....

Last night it was like Rush Hour.... my heart was like thumping so fast and was feeling kind of helpless... Elin and I had an appointment with a VIP supposedly at 7pm... then last minute, something propped up and I phoned the VIP that we would be coming at 7.30pm...

On the way to pick Elin, I forgot that it was a pasar malam (night market) near her area, the cars were so jammed up in between... and it was nearly 7.30pm... Quickly, I called up the VIP again and said we would be arriving late, half hour late.....

VIP was very understanding, told us to take our time... don't drive like Formula 1, we were told.. haahaha... well, my son took over the wheel... mum here hates the heavy traffic cos she is a very impatient lady!

Finally we reached the VIP's Regency Tower, apologising profusely to her ... wondering who was hungrier... she or us... lol...

Then off we went... to Sun Tuck Kee for our dinner... these were what we had....

fried bihun...

wantan hor.. noodles in egg gravy

claypot loe shu fun (short noodles)

meat balls

steamed octopus...
(Paul's species) urgh???

Ipoh famous bean sprouts

stewed chicken feet...

after some minutes... going .... going.....

gone!! there were 5 of us.....

The VIP cum Sponsor...
