Family Treat To Assam House, Greentown, Ipoh

It has been quite some time since we last had a meal in Assam House, Greentown Business Center. I remember the food portions there were pretty big and of course, the pricing is also "big".... hahahaa... Anyway, I called the restaurant to book a table for 11 people and we reached there at around 7pm. If not for the booking, I think we would not be able to get a nice big table....
While waiting for the food....
 .... the cameras or should I say, the handphones?
They started to click here and there....
 Didn't have time to chat much...
The food came out fast cos I ordered them beforehand...
Assam curry fish...
Big portion but my camera didn't give much credit..
This one tastes much better.... petai (stingy beans) with squids....
Kerabu mango..... with.....
Sambal dried prawns and cucmbers....
This is not rojak.... thought it looks like one....
It is called Chicken Rojak.... 
Something different... good choice...
Beancurd with mixed vegetables...
Sprouts with garlic....
Buttered crayfish....
Seven dishes... and the total bill came to RM270 for the 11 of us....
Well, I wouldn't say it is cheap... but then...
After the petrol increase, what is cheap... 
Please tell me.. :)

  1. About Rm25 for a person is considered ok. So many dishes though the sambal dried prawns alone can make people eat many bowls of rice.

  5. But you had crayfish...and squids and curry fish. For 11, I think that pricing is pretty ok. Chicken rojak sounds interesting. Is this in Ipoh? Something like that place you took me to for lunch - Sin Hup Kee Restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam...or maybe, a bit nicer.

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…
