Law And Disorder From Ipoh To Johor

TIME TO MOVE ON AFTER A TWO WEEKS REST IN IPOH...

Yes, I am a traveling NOMAD and I am NOT MAD... I cannot sit too long in a place though I would love to be.  One fine morning, Andy messaged to say that Firefly is giving offer, only RM59 per way to JB! Oh, oh... from that moment, my travel bugged me.... and ended up buying to and fro tickets for RM118,  In a matter of days, I was on the plane, waiting to fly from Ipoh........ GGGrrrrrrrr.... waiting to fly high.....

 The blades were starting to warm up..... 
Yes, Firefly is a propeller plane....
Soon, it was Up UP and Away..... flying south....
I don't have a book or an iPad with me....
So I ended up watching the clouds instead.... 
Within minutes when the seat belt sign was off, light refreshments were served...
I chose a packet of peanuts and a cup of mango juice...
Other options were curry puffs and muffins.... 
At exactly 1.30pm, it arrived at Senai Airport, JB... 
Thank God for journey mercies... 
All was good... 
My "driver" was waiting outside the airport and we took the town way back.... 
Blue and sunny skies above... nice weather... 
Within half hour we were back in our residential area...
And we stopped at Changman for lunch... 
Ooopsss.. no photos cos we were too hungry and I was not aware at all... 
But I had Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun before I boarded the plane... 
And my son kept asking why I didn't packet for him...
Aiyah! This mom ah... never thought of it also!
Next time perhaps!!
Soon we were back at the small nest.....
Everything seems to be in order.... 
Time to relax and we really did.... 
Both of us spent our whole afternoon and evening
Watching the latest Hongkong TVB drama...
Law and Disorder....
hmmmm.....

  5. Wahaha. Your son missed Ipoh food. Poor boy. Lol.

    You are sure a frequent traveller. But with such good fare, I would be tempted to fly too.

  6. Do you get a meal with Firefly? Are the peanuts free? What about water? Is this a reliable airline eg no lost luggage (usually), leaves on time etc?

    Have you sign up to the Frequent Traveller Airmile?

    1. No, i didnt sign up... any advantage? Firefly gives snacks only... not actually a main meal... it is free yes... should be reliable about the luggage cos not many people check in their bags... so claiming luggage just takes a short time.

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?

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…
