Twice Wrongly Charged At Famous Dart, Taman Sutera, Johor

HOW DO I SPEND THE DAYS IN JOHOR?   Very easy... wake up late, take lunch, go marketing, walk around the little nest with a broom, prepare dinner, take dinner and then TV throughout the evening till bedtime.  Of course, I managed to squeeze in some blogging work during the day as well.  That is how I juggle my "chores" while I am here in Johor.  Other than that, no extra activities like gym or walking the dog.  My girl is not here otherwise go gym-ing every day, no joke!

Other than food, I do not know what else to post up during my stay here.  I am very thankful that my dear in-law takes me out daily for my first meal and we normally go for something heavy to fill up our tummies.  On this particular morning, she took me to a place called Famous Dart at the Taman Sutera ....
I ordered this bowl of fish noodles with koay teow.... 
With salted vegetables and fresh fish, the soup was to my liking... 
Priced at RM13,90

My in-law ordered something simpler... 
Noodles with a few slices of abalone strips... RM8.90
And as "sidekicks", we have these fish balls.... RM7.30
Our first meal of the day... 
The portions are quite huge and I am surprised that I could finished them all regardless... 
When the bill came, it was around RM30...
My SIL briefly went through the bill and realized that her bowl of noodles was not charged...
Called the lady over and she thanked us for pointing out her mistake...
When the separate bill came, it was RM13.90 instead of RM8.90...
Oh, another mistake on her part!
She apologised profusely for her second mistake...
I guess she must have lots on her mind on that day....
hhhmmmm....

  1. Huh?? Abalone noodles for RM8.90?? I thought the standard price for it is RM15 (Malaysian) to RM20 (Singaporean)... cheap!!

  2. Oh dear! How to do business when so poor at calculations? Like this place I went to - tomorrow's post but I did not mention it in my blog - RM11.00, RM3 + RM5 + RM1.50 + RM1.50...and I told the girl I had tosai and she added RM2.30 and I said it was tosai telur so she deleted the RM2.30 and added RM3.00 - not that she was so busy, there were a lot of customers or what. Terrible! I could have just paid RM11.00 and left!

  6. I prefer your fish noodle than the abalone noodle. Johor's price is higher than Ipoh's.

    2. Thank you but I am funny as I have no desire to retire. I wish that I could still work and be useful when I am over 70 years old like those in China and Japan. (if I could reach that age**)

    That is life, Claire.

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…
