Third Round Of Pre-Retirement Gathering

This afternoon Elin and I were treated to a scrumptious lunch in Loon Wah Restaurant in Pasir Puteh. Both of us had never been there so anything new is interesting!   But this post will not be about the food and more food... I feel that it would be more meaningful to put in more humans than food cos this is all about us... colleagues and soon to be ex-colleagues...

I would like to remember this occasion and my lovely gang...
My beautiful colleagues...
Regardless of age... we still share the same interest here... 
Don't forget me...! 
  Different standing positions...
Love these pictures... 
My friend since 1980ssssss.... 
 
Both of us are retiring same month....
I think I gonna shed a tear.....
After this month... 
we will not have each other to go out daily anymore...
No intercom chats during office time....
No more breakies and lunchies daily....
No more going home together too...
Separation comes after retirement....
Our days will be changed from next month on...
Thank you for the Happy Years we had...
Happy Retirement to Both of Us!
Stay Cheerful Friend!!

  2. Once retired, a new chapter of your life starts. You will be doing new things and meeting new friends. But remember your old friends will be here waiting for you. Do stay connected.

  13. Elin also retiring? I know three ladies, ex-colleagues, who would meet every morning to go for breakfast and sit and chat and two groups of teachers who would meet, one once a week and the other once a month to do the same, big groups. Very nice way to keep in touch and stay active. You and Elin can do the same...and get some friends whoi have retired to join you two as well. The joy and fun would not have to end here.

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 …
