Firefly From Sultan Azlan Shah Airport Ipoh

Time really flies... soon it was time for AA to fly back south after being in Ipoh for almost five days, the longest leave he has ever taken so far...  seriously..... hahahaa....

His flight was around 4.50pm and we left the house around 4pm, it only takes around 10-15 minutes to the Ipoh airport.... It has been many years since I last visited my hometown's airport because it does not cater to many places, just Medan (I think) and Singapore....
At the T-junction traffic light..
turn right to the airport...
 This Royalty banner captured my eyes.... 
the airport is named after our Perak Sultan...
due to the haze, the grass are yellowish... 
eh... under renovation too!
reminded me of Sibu airport...
Maybe it will be completed when I "fly" the next time..
perhaps in one month
The temporary entrance to the airport....
15 minutes before departure.....
till we meet again...

IN less than two hours my handphone rang...
AA has reached his destination... so fast!
Thank you Firefly!
I will fly in you one day!!

  10. Here in Hawaii, there is an airport on each island. Yeah, it's a hassle to visit friends on other islands because of the expense of flying -- can't drive. There used to be a ferry, but the government got rid of it.

  11. last year, my girl bought a seat last minute and it was so expensive..

  12. Ya...like Sibu airport. Still doing it, not completed it...but progress is good. They said September - hopefully it will be so.

    No Firefly from here and Firefly from Sibu before would fly to KLIA...and if ti Ipoh, would have to go all the way to Subang to catch the flight. Such a nuisance...

    I hope Air Asia will fly Sibu-Ipoh one day...

  13. gigi: yeah, i can understand how it is... flights are quite pricey...

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?
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…
