Ipoh Breakfast And Lunch Treasures

THIS WEEKEND WAS FILLED WITH FUN AND LAUGHTER!   One of my "Empat Sekawan" came up to visit us and we had a wonderful time catching up with another.. Four of us slumbered in my house for the weekend and it was all noise, talking on top of our voices without any restrictions... What more can one ask... Good true friends are not easy to come by... I am indeed very blessed with so many good friends!  Another capital F is not forgotten too... FOOD!

We woke up earlier than usual and took our breakfast in Pulau Sembilan coffeeshop in Taman Boon Bak.  Within three days, I came by this place for the same food... same stall....
We ordered two versions to try.... 
This is the dry version of chicken koay teow.... 
Who says Malaysian food is "healthy?"
As long as tasty, we tend to overlook the "unhealthy" side, right?
The soupy version for my friend to try....
She likes it!
Price per bowl is RM4.40

Fast forward.... for lunch we went to Sin Hup Heng Chaizhou Restaurant for plain porridge with a few selective signature dishes... 
 Salted crispy meat....
Stewed cabbage... not to be missed...
 Warm from the wok ... Salted kembong fish... very nice!
Bitter gourd with eggs... hot and nice...
Leeks is my favourite too!
 Five dishes for the four of us...  
And the bill came to RM43 with porridge and drinks.... 
I can take porridge anytime... my favourite.. 
After all, I am a Teochew nang! :)

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…
