Greek Community Festival Along Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

After our heavy meal, we set out again and before we do each time, my young tour guides will "consult" the map for directions first... .
                          Checking out where to go... north or south... east or west.... 
Great, eh... I don't have to voice out anything... I just sing...
"I will follow you... follow you wherever you may go..."

Then we passed by the State Library again... 
Some Koreans doing some K-Pop dance and asking us to stop for a few minutes to see them... 
People happily obliged to see them perform one dance... 
and then we set off again... 
Passed by a few malls... 
Lots of Asians in sight...
Going up some malls to look-see... 
But nothing much that interests us... 
Back on the streets again...
At the traffic light while waiting for it to turn green... 
Ended up walking past Chinatown... 
Nothing much to buy here.. just look see only... 
And of course, taking pictures... 
Really different from the Chinatown in San Francisco... 
Few more blocks and we were amazed to see a big crowd here!
Something Greek was going on!
Looks like we were in the midst of a Greek festival.... 
Greek food for sale... but we didn't get any...
Looks like sweetened doughnuts...
Walking along to see what else in store... 
Yes, she saw something really TALL!
Interesting!
Nice to feel the festive atmosphere coincidentally.... 
And we experienced a Greek dance performed by two handsome guys!
Some hair raising thrill rides too....
Everyone seems to be having fun!
I certainly did!
                                    We felt we were part of the Greek community too.. LOL...

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
