We Love Ipoh Group

I joined a group in Facebook recently, it is called We Love Ipoh, City Of Good Food. The group title itself is so alluring that I could not resist being a member. There are so many places in Ipoh that I haven't "explored" as yet where food is concerned. And coming by to this group, I have come to "profit" so much on exotic food places.   We started off by sharing our Ipoh food places in Facebook and from there, we get to know one another.... So imagine how "foodiehappy" I was when one of the group members invited me to have lunch with them! 

It was on a Friday lunch break when I drove to town for our lunch rendevouz in Yum Yum Restaurant.  Apart from the food, I was looking forward to meeting my new friends who share the same interest as I do...
"The Foodie-holics!"
(Hope to meet up with more members later!)
We ordered the Yum Yum lunch set for Friday....
Siamese Laksa!
Thick santan-ic gravy greeted me.....
More flavourful with lime juice....

And crispy "foo pei" as accompaniment...



 A plate of nasi lemak to go round the table.... 
Looks good... but I didn't try cos I was really Super Full...
Full not just with food...
But with Fun and Laughter!
So Blessed... 
Looking forward to another Foodie Outing withmy New Friends!

    2. Haha!! Young indeed!! :-) I have been encouraging my mom to use blogs and social media to meet up new people, go for new food and try new things....I think it's a very healthy lifestyle. To have a community that could be an encouragement to one another! Way to go!!

  2. Wahhhhhh!!!! Facebook group also got meet-up. I did not join any, anyone added me I would just leave the group. Too many shares on my News Feed... some/many not even relevant, say, Sibu/Sarawak food...they post pictures of what they had in Penang/KL/Melaka...or things they cooked at home, did not look nice even. Tsk! Tsk!

  7. I also joined a local foodie FB group called Kuching Food Critic. I were also amazed by how many places and food that I have not been and tried in Kuching.

    That was a very good idea to gather and meet more friends. At least you have a common interest ie food! ^^

  15. It is so nice to have such a group to gather always. It is so difficult to start our own blogger gatherings in KL. Our jobs and home locations are like 1-2 hours apart.
    The guy in red T-shirt is very familiar to me!!!

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…
