MM2H - Making My Second Home

On the forth day, after our breakfast/brunch at my sibling's place in Sg. Buloh, we packed up again to continue on with our journey down south.  Need to stuff up our stomachs, expecting our drive to be a very LONG one since it was a Sunday....
 Bought-from-Ipoh dry wanton noodles....
And prepared by my sister-in-law...
Stuffed us up before we continued on with our trip...
 Eating up the leftovers as well... 
And soon we were on our way.... 
Our car stuffed to the fullest again!
And it was a slow drive to Johor...
Some drivers were holding up the traffic on the highway...
Cos they slowed down to have a good view on the few car accidents along the way....
As usual.. this is kind of expected...
After a few long hours, we finally reached our destination!
So good to be Home at last....
Great to be Home ...
A Different Place....
But still a Home...
A Home where our hearts are...

  1. I didn't know your siblings live in Sg Buloh. I always thought you sneaked to Small Kucing's house. LOL
    The traffic jams seemed lesser this year with the Waze being the great help to most drivers now.

    Wishing you and family a very Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year!

  12. Huh? I didn't see this coming! You moving in with your sons after retiring? I think you will be fine in terms of food, JB quite similar with KL/Ipoh.. If you love wantan mee, you can try Ah Piaw Wantan Mee near KSL mall, although they only open from 10PM - 10AM XD

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…
