Lithuanian Artist Ernest Zacharevic In Ipoh

During our long lunch hour this afternoon, Elin and I went to a number of places... from old town, we went to Ipoh Garden to do some banking, then to Kampong Simee to have laksa for lunch, then back to old town to catch some desserts and finally back to office around 2.30pm...
We were here initially.... but there was no parking so we left for Ipoh Garden.... 
Then we came back again to this place to look for a parking...
See how "Jam" the place is.....
But we managed to find one parking eventually.... phewww....
We were right outside the coffeeshop....
And there was a big crowd there...
I thought someone is "filming" initially....
People of all ages are so fascinated.... 
So... this is the reason for the crowd....
Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic!
Not wanting to be left out, Elin and I joined in .....
 He is obviously oblivious of the crowd... 
Fully concentrated.....
 That was about it, I suppose....
 A few more touch ups ...
 and he is ready to go....
That's it!   
Good Job Done!
The crowd has gone..... we went for our desserts...
Soon it was time for us to go too...
Back to Office!

  5. How nice to be able to catch him in action! I wonder whether he was commissioned to do the drawing or not. Nice photo of you standing beside the little girl.

  8. He was in Kuching some few months ago and he drew two orang utans, one swinging from a branch and another sitting in a wheelbarrow. He is such a good artist. This picture is almost like the one in Penang but this one is a girl instead of a boy.

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
