Our First Homecooked Meal In Johor

We did not eat out all the time, firstly it is quite costly and secondly, most of the food are sort of "fattening" too... my sons prefer homecooked food anytime especially they have been "deprived" from them for a doubly long time already.   So ... most mornings, my girl and I will do some marketing at the grocery malls and just a few days ago, I was told that there is one mini market just near my place.  Now there is no more excuse that I cannot cook.... hahahaa...

For the first few days, I just did some simple cooking such as these...

Broccoli with mushrooms and scallops....
Beans with egg....
There were limited bowls in the house then... 
Only two metal plates, one bowl and one big mug...
So my girl ended up eating rice in the big mug!
hahahahaa...
After that day, we bought the whatever is necessary....
A more proper meal was in store....
Since it's just family, I didn't bother to dish out individual bowls for soup...
We do it the "authentic way" .... 
 This time I did cauliflower with mushrooms and scallops...
Sweet sour prawns....

ABC groundnuts soup....
And peeled oranges done by my girl... 
(for the first time in history!)
Thus the photo as proof.. 
Good job!
Welfie...
Our first proper meal!!

  5. i would certainly agree with that.. your two boys have been eating out all the time, and now they have the "Empress Dowager" to stay with them, for sure they would feel like eating something homecooked!! and i would say, the dishes do not need to be fancy, but would definitely taste a lot more delicious than many food they have been having outside.. :)

  6. I wonder if your sons secretly tell their colleagues: "Yay! we get home cooked meals now because we just imported our maid from Ipoh!"

    That's what my colleague kept saying when his mom retire and moved to Penang to live with him.. 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?

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…
