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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
