Ipoh And My Foodie Friends!

IT FEELS GOOD TO GO HOME, it is good to reach home in a matter of an hour more but when I think of the flight... hmmmm.... Well, a needle cannot be sharp at two ends... Two options... take a eight hour bus ride or one hour plus flight... which sounds good?  The former cost RM75 and the latter is RM103... and I chose the latter....
And so up and up and away.... we flew....
Above the clouds....
It was a fine weather this morning... Thank God...
After an hour plus, the plane began to descend...
And it feels so good to land....

Upon checking out, my girl and I were whisked into my friend's car... 
and off we went for lunch Marpoh restaurant!
The dishes were already pre-ordered by my ex-colleagues while waiting for us...
Vinegar pork!  
Yummsss!
Fish slices with ginger and spring onions.....
Ma Lai Foong Kong!
Crispy fried Oysters
And besides the yummy food, it is Great to see them once again!!
Food always bring us together no matter far or near...
hahahaaa...

  5. Really Ipoh Food Mayor, like Yang Berhormat, touch down then got personal ahmat to whisk you to food immediately! XD

    I don't like fish in ginger and spring onions like that. Not because I don't like the fish, but because that dish always makes me feel like a moron, I would pick the fish and leave the other stuff alone..

  8. You flew home? I thought you and Fernie drove to JB? Left your car there for son to use? Such a good mum!

    I'd rather fly too...especially when the price difference is so little - cannot imagine those extra long bus rides and all the stops on the way - you would have to spend money to eat some more...and even to use the toilet. May work out to be more or less the same.

  12. Flying is the faster option so it is the better choice since only need to pay a little bit more.

  13. Well...only RM30 difference should be no big deal for you. :)

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
