Stuck At Nibong Tebal

Started on our journey up north this morning at around 11am... And the journey was smooth sailing until one km from Nibong Tebal... The one kilometer felt like ten kilometers, snail crawling at the highway.  From then to the toll, it took us an hour I guess... and we heard that one lorry overturned and  the highway from NB was closed... Every vehicle had to detour to Nibong Tebal and had to use the old trunk road ....
Crawling traffic.....
I was very hungry by the time we passed the toll and into the old trunk road in NB...
We had to stop here for lunch to prevent my tummy from growling further.... 
After all, it was pass 2pm already!
Any dish on the wall looks yummy to me!
And we ordered these.... Honey pai kwat wong.... No bones just meat.....
Sambal tapioca leaves with three prawns....
And their special lemongrass fish head soup which was so up to my standard... 
Hahhhaaaa....
And this "captain" is the one who recommended the dishes.... And served us as well...
Sat down to talk to us too... and the bill came to RM36 after much talking... Hahahaa....
After our lunch, we proceeded with our journey and reached Penang around 4pm! 
Phewwww......

  1. That was about double your usual time for you to reach Penang. But I think all the yummy dishes compensates for the delay. I would love to taste the lemon grass fish head soup!

  2. If got good company in the car, it is ok to be stuck in a traffic jam because can chit chat and won't be boring.

  3. That's the old trunk road? So so so so much nicer than our miserable so-called "highway".

  6. Sien, overturned lorry is the most frustrating one, it brings traffic to a standstill! Too bad it happened before the 2nd bridge, else you can use the 2nd bridge to enter the island..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
