Three Plus One In Bercham

While taking Labbie for a walk, my neighbour who stayed a few doors away called out to me... We ladies ended up chatting at the gate while Labbie sat down patiently..... As usual, we talked about our kids and the ending topic landed on food...

She recommended this shop in Bercham which serves steamed soup in coconut shell... but I didn't order this just now... I ordered these instead...

steamed lotus and groundnuts soup..

steamed eggs with fish slices (ikan kerapu)

sambal long beans

we were the only customers...
when we entered and when we left.. lol..

a smile without "teeth"

a smile with "teeth"
No connection with the food above....hahaha
Anyway, the food was actually alright...
I wouldn't mind going there again...

..with a complimentary red bean dessert..
The boss came out and asked me about the food..
I told her frankly that the food was fine..
but it would be better if the red bean desssert
is served warm than "fridge cold"

  1. oh, i love lotus root and peanut soup, my favourite.. hehe, actually i think cold red bean soup is also nice woh, very cooling mah.. :)

  2. not too bad it looks, nice dessert to go with it.

  3. The steam egg with fish looks good.

  4. The long beans look good...but RM10!!! Not cheap or...

  5. I spotted that shop quite some time ago but never been there. The steamed fish is a unique one. Will show it to my Dad and force him to eat there. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Are you going to try the coconut bowl food?

  11. Hmm... steamed soup in coconut shell is something special. You didn't try it out, eh? RM7.00 is considered reasonable because that bowl of soup is filled with lots of ingredients :O

  12. soup looks good.. feeling like having soup now.. ;-p

  13. Simple food actually.. now what shall we eat tonight.. :)

  14. Steamed egg with fish? I have never seen such a dish before. :p

  15. Coconut steam soup can be very heaty . Try not to drink on hot weather day

  16. tekkaus: first time for me too..

    kathy: is it? then i better not take..

  17. *drooling* the food look good leh.. however, it's a bit pricy for the long beans to be priced the same as the steam fish o.
    i miss my grandma's lotus and groundnut soup! will put it in the menu for this weekend :)

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…
