Tropical Fruits And A Homecooked Meal Before Departure

Leaving Ipoh without enjoying durians is unheard of.... due to some recommendation from friends, some from FB to confirm this too, we came upon this special uncle with one leg.  He is well known for selling quality durians in Ipoh Garden...he sells at the pavement of one of the shops along the Shell Petrol station..
He doesn't have many durians... but I heard most of them are good taste!
Among durians, he also sells mangosteens and duku langsat..
The fruits are now in season...

My boys patiently awaiting for Uncle to choose the durians...
 
Uncle is now performing his task....
 While Andy is looking on.....
Uncle asked him nice or not each time he opens one... 

Soon all are opened and ready to be packed... 
We bought 4 for RM37.... cheap!
Before my boys left Ipoh, a homecooked meal was prepared ....
This is their special request dish....
With durians as desserts and a homecooked meal, 
I hope they find this homecoming trip a worthwhile trip!
Till we meet again... 
Not sure when but I hope it will be soon! :)

  4. Bet that was the best meal they had when they were home. Nothing can ever beat mum's cooking, that's the bottomline. Back to missing them again, eh? At least I get to see my girl once a week, not too bad.

  13. Hmmm, I wonder why u don't cook for your family when they go back home. My mum makes sure we have home cooked food every time we go home as to her, eating out is unhealthy and expensive. That is how she shows her love for us.. 😍

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
