Travel Plans

Christmas is around the corner, this is the best time of the year to do some traveling here and there. As for me, I am not going anywhere far yet this month but we will not be celebrating Christmas in our house this year. That is why I did not put up our Christmas tree this year, we will be visiting down south to visit my siblings and celebrating the festive season with them. I am really looking forward to seeing them again, it has been a long time since we last gathered together as one family.

As for my traveling plans, my kids and I have decided to visit Down Under next year.  Now is the time to "accumulate" some information, where, what, how and when.  LOL.... These brochures below were passed to me by my colleague who had just came back from Australia.  He just came back from Sydney with his wife, they had a wonderful time there and he has given me much details on where to stay, where to go, what to eat etc. etc.  Since I am going with my three kids, he suggested that we could rent a car to drive around Melbourne.  There are so many listed and reliable websites and one of them is the campervan hire from My Drive Holiday.  Yes, we are going for a free-and-easy trip, no group tours and waking up wee hours in the morning, we prefer to plan our own tours or joining some local tours when we reach there.  Nothing definite yet, we are still planning.... :)
Useful information... I hope by the time I go, I can remember what he had told me!  
hahahaa...
My first time to Sydney, that was many years ago.
Darling Harbour, if I am not mistaken....
Any changes after 30 years? LOL...
Queuing up to take a picture with Mr. Koala!
Well, it would be great to make another trip to Down Under...
Hopefully by next year...

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…
