Dinner Treat At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

I THOUGHT AFTER I STOPPED WORKING, I would be on the slimmer side... however, it was not meant to be... From February onwards I have been feeding myself with food and more food... so blessed, I know... but when I got the report from the doctor recently, I have to refrain from taking certain good food... Temptation is great and the flesh is weak... hahahaha...

I had another scrumptious meal a week ago, a yummylicious treat from a generous guy whom everyone loves.... it was indeed an honour to be invited by him, appreciate his thoughts very much.... I learn something from him... he told me that there are three words which we do not need to say to him ... They are "Thank you, Sorry and Please... "  Cute guy!

A group of us were invited to Mun Choong Restaurant for dinner... most of them were former SMI teachers and students... Only two names are familiar to me since my late hubby and my sons were from SMI... Master Thomas Choo and Timothy Chee are the familiar ones...
Seated with Mrs. Chee and Mrs. Choo among my other friends...

Terima Kasih, K.L. for the Sumptuous Dinner...
Cheers!!

  1. What a grand feast! What I know is when people retire, the food they eat is much richer and more grand than those they ate before, hahaha.

  2. What a happy occasion to come together with friends and good food. No worries, all your extra calories will be burnt after your polo ground exercise.

  6. Haha, so now how many kg you have gained? But I guess it would be balanced - with the amount of housework, gym and exercises and all.. Nevermind, "sik tak hai fook" (can eat, got luck)..

  7. haha, I doubt that leh.. when you stop working now, you tend to have more time to eat and also you should be more a happy person and hence you gain weight faster!! all the stress from work makes you slimmer lah I would say so.. unless you are spending your retirement on dieting, haha!! anyway, why bother?? just enjoy good food and be happy!! :D

  11. Better watch out leh... I've seen many cases of people falling sick shortly after they retire, due to having more time to relax and eat alot. :/

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…
