A Foodie Trip From Ipoh To Chemor

YAY!!! TODAY IS THE DAY!!
Through "watsapp", we the three retirees finally met up  this morning at 10.30am... I was all ready to be "picked up" by my ex-colleagues and we were looking forward to a day of Food! 
The Foodie Trio!!

We started off with a Duck Project and the place is called Old Friends Restaurant.  It is located on the main road leading to Chemor town.  The Duck project had been put off many times before due to our busyness and this morning we finally made it to that place.... 
 
Though we reached there around 11.30am, the ducks were nearly all "booked"...
There were only two left for sale, we overheard....
This is the first time I get to taste this...
No wonder they get sold out fast... the meat was really tender and "yup mei!"
Don't need any sweet sauce to go with them at all...
Thumbs up for the food!
After our scrumptious lunch, we continued on with our foodie trip to a small town, Chemor...
We stopped here at this shop famous for their fish head and seafood noodles....
 
Since we were already "half-full" we ordered just a bit to try... to satisfy our curiosity...
A bit of this and that... fish maw, fish paste and wanton...
And the soup has this cilantro taste which really suited our taste buds!
 
We planned to go there some day to try the seafood noodles and fish head! 
Worth making another trip there.. perhaps next Friday??? 
Along the same row, something caught our "beauty eyes!"
hahahahaa...   
 DURIANS! 
 There and then, the vendor opened up one for us to eat....
And my friend ended up buying the rest of them!
 
The durian vendor is so cute...
And the durians are Very creamy and bittersweet!!
 
 Ok, we promised him that we would advertise his durians...
They were sold for RM8 each... good buy.. 
They are called "Da-nau"
 
Oh, he has these "Crystal Jackfruits" too... 
Did I get it correct? 
Yes, we need to "advertise" these as well... 
It is all in a Package.. hahahaha...
Otherwise we couldn't get them cheap... 
  He even gave us his phone number... 
Call him in advance so that we won't be disappointed!
Mike Mar... no joke!!
Durians all sold out to my friend...
Even coconuts were finished too!
Everyone was Happy And Satisfied with the outcome in Chemor.... 

But that is not the end of the food trip for us....
From Chemor, we drove all the way to First Garden to visit this lady....
Her smooth homemade Tau Fu Far!
Just look at me!  My double chin is coming up next!
Rounded faces could be seen even from afar!
Yes, our foodie trip from 11am till 3pm....
Phew... what a Full-Filling Day!
Thank you for the Food-Fillment, ladies!

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?
Our fir…

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…
