My 25 Counties Journey

A DAY BEFORE OUR DEPARTURE FROM SAN FRANCISCO, my BIL handed me two pieces of paper and told me that I would be needing them when I reach home. hahahaha... He really has a good sense of humour! He knows that I own a blog and I write a lot of crazy stuff there and many times, I ended up giving wrong information too... hahahaha...

Well, what would one expect from a human being absent minded like me?  Or should I say... a poor memory?  So.... in order to set things right, he took the trouble to make photostat a map out, outlined it with green pen and then write down all the counties that he had taken me!  Isn't that nice!!  *To be on the safe side so that I won't be giving out wrong and inaccurate information.. that's me!

Okay, let me see... where have I actually been to....

And the arrows showed that I have been to Nevada and Arizona too!  
Isn't my BIL meticulous!
Just look at that... 25 COUNTIES!
Did we really pass through all those small towns?
Maybe most of the time, I was half asleep, I guess... hahahaa...
No wonder whenever we passed through some towns, I got jerked up from the "driver" and after a mumble from me...."Yes, ok...." I was back to dreamland.... ZZZzzzz....
Anyway, whatever it takes, I really appreciate all their thoughts for giving us such a meaningful kind of vacation..... Miss them much!!  Hopefully will see them REAL soon!!

  3. Your BIL is such an organised guy, very systematic...no cincai cincai kind of person.

    I envy you - so much energy plus you have the chance to travel. I'd usually choose to laze around and relax in the hotel room though, I'm so lazy...and will venture out only when it is time to eat. :D

  11. Your BIL is a very thoughtful person too. And he took the trouble to do it for you. You are so blessed! So when is your next destination! So fun to travel with you through your posting!

  12. What an interesting way to note the counties you have left your footprints. My friend does the same for Thailand as he wants to cover all the "Jangwats" which are like province.
    I never thought of this good counties idea while there except that I only counted the number of states in US.

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…
