OAKS Horizon Apartment Hotel, Adelaide, Australia

THE FLIGHT FROM KL TO ADELAIDE TOOK MORE THAN SEVEN HOURS and we reached Adelaide around 8am *time difference is 1 1/2 hours later in Adelaide*...  and reached our Oaks Horizon Hotel/Apartment before our appointed check-in time.  Since our apartment was not ready yet, we "parked" our luggage there and went for our breakfast in Rundermall area....  and so what did we end up eating???
Yes, Dim Sum!!
Right in the center of Adelaide shopping area!
Suits me REALLLL FINE!! 
Hongkong Dim Sum... not Malaysian.... so they are a bit different....
Ordered a bit of this and that.....
I left out the Giant Beef Balls!
Curry noodles opened by a Malaysian ex-lecturer, so I heard....
Not bad, I like it cos it is not spicy.....and lots of fillings...chunks of chicken...
I think it cost around $8Aud...
Self-service...
Walked and rested a bit after our meal.....
  Famous landmark at Runder Mall...
Soon... it was time to check in... at last..... 
 Our rented apartment view from the main door....
From the balcony door...
Master bedroom....
Attached bathroom...
This is for me and my girl....
With attached bathroom too....
 View from the highest floor...
From the 17th Floor view, Adelaide Conventre Center is just opposite...
Only setback about the apartment is this....
NO WIFI!
The only thing to "capture" the internet is to sit near the balcony each day....
Thanks to ACC, we managed to stay connected!!

  5. Aiyor!!!! Go all the way there to eat stuff we can get back home! Ah well!! As long as they're good - usually at these ang moh countries, they have these to "phian ang moh", bluff one only, nothing like the real thing and expensive (ah well...nothing is cheap there - best to buy raw food, cook in apartment, cheaper) and HUGE servings...but what you had looked ok, not that big at all.

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 …
