Birthday Celebration At East Ocean, Menglembu

SOMEHOW THIS POST SLIPPED THROUGH MY FINGERS... cos this birthday happened before the previous one on promotion.

With the group apps, it is so much easier to plan and update one another.  During my yesteryears, how did we contact one another to celebrate something?  I think it is through word by mouth or the black phone in the house.  But then not everyone has a black phone in the house those days.  I am talking about the years back in the 70s.... hahahahaa...  Ok, never mind the past... it happened so long ago and I could not remember much at my age now.

Coming back to my topic, the eight of us met up in East Ocean Restaurant in Menglembu to celebrate one of my ex-classmates' birthday.  One by one each of us have reached one digit higher than the rest though we were born of the same year.  Mine is still a couple of months away... *hint hint* No worries, by the time it is my turn, I will yell out LOUD!
Started off with a bowl of soup minus the shark fins...
Instead they put in misua to replace... 
Very tasty surprisingly!
This one came in first.... I remember cos it is my favourite dish...
Steamed Yam with dried shrimps as toppings!
Then all the dishes came in at one shot...
Garoupa in spring onions and ginger...
Kailan with the soft type of fungus...
Mixed vegetables...
Well, I guess we are pretty conscious on our food... mostly veg!
Followed by Buttered Prawns in curry leaves...
And lastly, Lemon Fried chicken... 
For desserts, we have their signature pudding... RM3 each...

We had two types of Cakes.... 
The Yam Cake ...
And the Buttered Cup Cakes by Nancy Chong... each cost RM3 for a mini-sized cup...
And that is our Birthday Girl for the evening.... 
So... who will be the Next one in line?
September is coming soon!
Oh, about the bill, it came to around RM300 over...

  3. A nice gatherinv and birthday celebration.

    Remember the black phone where you need to use your finger to turn and dial the number. Remember we used it before switching to the button pressing type.

    Nowadays everyone has handphone. The house phone is not much use at all. Jusr apply to get internet line only. ^^

  7. The soup looks so good. And the cupcakes are beautiful! The pudding looks like it is surrounded by egg drop soup! Lovely.

  8. Is mock shark fin soup common these days?

    Are cakes generally of good quality esp the chocolate cake or brownies in coffee shops or eateries (except high-end eateries) in Malaysia?

    Cakes are generally of poor quality in Turkey. Their chocolate cake and chocolate desserts have a low cocoa butter content. Usually, the cakes are layered with thick lashings of cream; vegetable based ???? but definitely not butter cream. I don't know about five stars hotels and foreign ??? owned (not Starbucks) eateries in Istanbul. In the supermarkets including corner shops, there are different types of premix for puddings and cakes.

    1. Yes, shark fins are not encouraged nowadays... so they replace with other creativity... Cakes here depends on which shops.. the ones that I normally love to order is Nancy Chong, famous since the 1960s...

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
