Food Around And Round Faces In Ipoh

MOST MORNINGS WE GO THROUGH THIS CONVERSATION either through whatsapp or calling direct... "Hey, what are you doing?" And she answered, "You think I No need to work ah?" and of course, my usual answer would be... "What's so nice about working? Come on out!"  And our laughter continues... 

These are our usual chats in the morning when we do not have any layout plans... And each time we end up having breakfast/lunch and sometimes dinner together.... Well, I call this Retirement plans! Looking forward to each morning to venture out for our meals... I wonder what life would be without my friends around me... Eating alone outside, I am not used to it... cooking alone?  At times it is alright but if everyday I cook and eat alone, it is no fun either... At the moment, live and be thankful for friends around me...
One morning we ended up in Sun Yuen Loong at Bendahara Road...
I had their Prawn Noodles aka Hokkien noodles... 
My friend told me this is quite popular there... 
Not too bad, a lot of ingredients as toppings...
We also ordered a small portion of Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun....
This is Ipoh style.... 
And two pieces of yam cake.... very yammy taste....
During our afternoon tea, my friend brought along some of her homemade fritters...
Wanton wraps with a piece of sweet potato, yam and "Neen Koe" 
Oh ... the ones in small wrappers are filled with "meat floss"
We ordered something light to go with our afternoon tete-a-tete...
Our desserts plus peanuts porridge.... 
That is about all for our high tea... 
One of my friends who loves Food as much as I do...
So thankful to have them around now that we are no more working...
Our Round One and Two...
Rounded Not only on food but on our faces as well...
hahahahaa....

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 …
