Rundle Street East In Adelaide

AS THIS IS A RELAXING AND LEISURE GETAWAY, we did not plan anything in advance.  I really don't mind if I just laze around in the apartment or going out for short walks around the vicinity, it really suits me real fine!  NO more waking up calls at 6am in the morning and dragging my legs up to the hotel room in the late evening like those tour groups which I have experienced those days.  Thank goodness I was younger then.... and now, I prefer to go for these free and easy trips... no more time commitments and rushing from one place to another.....

We slept early the night before, replenishing the "lack of sleep" we lost the previous night before and we woke up fully refreshed and ready to start off our second day in Adelaide.  After our hearty breakfast in the apartment, we set out to Rundle Street again, so much to "look and see"... well, with over 1000 retail stores and services, it seems to be a never-ending walk for us...  I really don't mind taking our own time walking leisurely, the weather was simply fabulous.... cooling and yet not windy... very nice!
Before we set out, here I am in front of the apartment hotel...
Oh, I think I was not the only one there.... 
Obviously someone was waving from behind.... 
No sweater on the second day... 
Weather was around 16 to 22 degrees as we set out.... 
From our hotel to Rundle Street, it was just a five to seven minutes walk....
Oh ... er... unless we stopped every now and then to take pictures, it is again a different story...
The railway station is a short distant away from our place....
Along the subway... I mean pathway...
and soon we reached the intersection leading to Rundle Street pedestrian walk...
It was more crowded on Tuesday than the previous day....
Leisure walk was what we did and enjoyed, no time constraint...
Another musician here on the streets...

This reminded me of Ipoh... 
But this is Rundle Street Coffee Central...
And me at 127, Rundle Mall....
Someone is getting ready to shop!
While it was fun to shop and relax.....
We wasted no time busy connecting to the outside  world such as Malaysia!
Cyber Cafe on the Streets!

  1. Ooooo...I loved those buskers overseas. Some of them that I saw were really very very good...and of course, I would give them a bit for their effort. I loved browsing around the shops there too, just browsed, not buy...everything there was way too expensive, couldn't afford. Would just spend on food, eat the stuff they had there - not cheap either, but no choice.

  6. What an awesome walk! You had lots of willpower to avoid the coffee stall. Now that you are retired, you are what we call "a lady of leisure".

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 …
