Working Assignments In Tapah And Teluk Intan

A few of us started out our journey to the smaller districts again this morning, this time to Tapah, a forty five minutes drive from Ipoh.  From the highway, we detoured into the district and had our breakfast at a famous stall here.
Lots of varieties being displayed at such an early hour... 
 
 Famous for this... such a Giant Kuali...
Young banana shoots with beef curry... 
First time eating this with Roti Canai...
It has been a long time since I last taken this Roti Canai...
Unhealthy, no doubt.... but so nice that I couldn't resist it this morning...
Passed through the town and soon we reached the district office...
Spent some hours there working.... and soon it was lunch time...
I took a bit of rice with ginger fried chicken, fish and a piece of spicy brinjal....
Can see something peculiar here?
How come we were holding hands???
Well, I guess this is called teamwork...
hahahaa....
After lunch, we proceeded another forty five minutes to Teluk Intan.... 
Passed through some nice padi fields....
Teluk Intan District.... 
Another beautiful landscape being maintained here......
Active Koi-s swimming here and there....
Soothing for the eyes when work is a pressure.... 
I wouldn't mind working here....
The greens are soothing to the eyes...

Another few hours of work and soon it was time to leave....
Going back to Ipoh took one and half hours drive....
Had a real nice snooze during the journey.... 
And reached home around 6.30pm.... 
Pheww.... What a Long Day.....

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
