Lunch In Kuala Lumpur, Dinner In Ipoh

AARON AND I DROVE DOWN TO KUALA LUMPUR USING THE WAZE... For the first time I downloaded the app in my old phone and surprisingly, it was "usable!" In fact, it led us all the way from Sg Buloh to Jalan Ampang, smoothly without any hiccups.  We parked our car at the Wisma MCA and since we were quite early for our appointment, we went to K Avenue to take our lunch.  It was just a short distance away but for me, it was considered a long one, going up and down the pedestrian bridge is no joke for me! hahahahaa..
Safely at the K Avenue mall and we opted for a Japanese lunch...
Gabriel's recommendation... .
Aaron doing his garlic on the squeezer.... 
Eventually he had to "knock" a bit so that they could be released... 
I had the Bankara ramen.... 
The soup base was pretty thick.... 
I guess I am not used to eating this type of soup... 
Anyway, I want to thank Gabriel for the hearty meal...
Great catching up with you again!

It was still drizzling when we left Wisma MCA around 2.30pm and using Waze again, we managed to go to the highway and reached Ipoh in the evening.  After checking in all our stuff, we proceeded for dinner at Tai Kong in Pasir Puteh.  More or less like homecooked food and that is what I like!
Steamed meat with "mui choy"
Salted vegetable soup...
Old melon soup....
Yes, we are "soupy" people... we ordered one for each of us.... 
And they gave us an enormous plate of blanched vegetables...
For a simple meal like this, it cost RM22...
Don't mind coming again for our dinner another time!

  8. Your bankara ramen looks like shark fin soup at first glance. Hehehe.

    I used Waze when I stayed in Sibu. Pretty useful although it could be confusing sometimes. Like some roads in Sibu can no longer turn right, the Waze aske me to turn right. Lol.

    Indeed your dinner is so homey. Even the bowls and plates that they used is what I used to use when I stayed in Sibu. Haha. Hubby's uncle has many of those stainless steel bowls and plates.

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? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. 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.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! 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...
