Central Market China Town, Adelaide

ON THE FOURTH MORNING IN ADELAIDE, we took around twenty minutes walk to the Chinatown... for two purposes, firstly, to have our Dim Sum breakie and secondly to do some marketing for dinner in the evening... Eating out is not "cheap" at all so we need to balance out our costs...
And so here we are... right at the entrance of Chinatown!
And now to get some food.....
So much to look and see and choose....
Looking for the best dim sum in town.. 
hahahaa.. 
Just kidding... we really don't know which is the best... 
 We just settled for this one here....
And ... comfortably seated for a pose...  
Soon we were being served...
The atmosphere made us feel at home... 
Everything looks familiar...
Food and camera is the main "attraction"....
Again, this one caught my attention...
Giant Beef Balls!
 
And part of the Dim Sum we ordered....
After our tummies were fully fed, we did our marketing here...
Central Market, Adelaide...
Where all kinds of souvenirs are sold..
Fruits....
All types of nuts...
And me holding a bag of stuff.... 
before we made our way home again... 
Yes, it is truly Autumn in Adelaide....
We took a tram back this time to our place...
Only three stations stop and the tram is free of charge...

  10. Adelaide’s Chinatown has a lot of dimsum places to offer, and it has the variety that many of our guests enjoy. It is good that in the office, a number of the lady staff members enjoy dimsum and other types of Chinese food. If anyone can suggest more choices, it would be great to read some posts out here.

  11. There are lots of new things to see everywhere in Adelaide, but this is a good reminder not to take for granted places in your neighbourhood! Perhaps its time for us to go and explore places we have never really thought much about…

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 …
