Home Coming Reunion Dinner At Kok Thai Restaurant, Ipoh

YES, HE CAME HOME FOR HIS PRE-CNY REUNION DINNERS!  But very soon he will be flying thousand of miles back to super cold weather again.  Since he could not be back for CNY, he wants to have a feel of the reuniting with all his family members and friends and thus the foodie marathon begins the moment he stepped down to Singapore and then Johor, Ipoh and Penang... and er... well, that is in his itinerary list, see how much we can cover in so little time... So far, he has covered Johor... now Ipoh...
We had our first reunion dinner at Kok Thai Restaurant.... 
We ordered five dishes for the six of us.....
Steamed ginger kampong chicken... a real confinement dish!
Assam curry seafood 
Mixed vegetables....
Kailan with yummy yam!
And our favourite claypot seafood varieties....
Bill came to around RM159 with rice and drinks...
Kok Thai is still my favourite restaurant...
And in my condition, it is most convenient...
Parked right in front and just a few steps and into the restaurant!

  2. Oh, he's home. That's nice. Not staying till Chinese New Year? You're joining him on his food marathon? Come, put Sibu on the list - hop over for a few days! If he likes Auntie Mary's cooking, Sibu is where she comes from - where all the good food is. Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
