What To Do Whilst Waiting For Your Food To Come

As I’m a big fan of going out to restaurants, there are always a few times when I’m slightly ahead of my fellow eating companions. And so recently I’ve been devising a few ways that I can stay productive when I’m waiting to be sat down at the table. After all there’s nothing worse than having to wait a long time to eat that large bowl of dry curry chicken noodles!
A lot of the time I will take a book to pass the time, but recently I’ve started taking my smartphone which is packed full of great entertainment regarding film trailers, online games, and even some further restaurant ideas.

When I’m meeting friends for dinner, we often have a big meal before heading out to the movies. And I’m a massive fan of the IMDB app which is specially catered for smartphones and tablets and gives me an exhaustive list of all the upcoming cinematic attractions.

The great thing about this is that it allows me to switch over to the YouTube app so that I can check out all of the trailers for the movies and see whether it’s going to be a suitable film for the night’s viewing entertainment.

However, there are a few times when we’ll be a little more daring and follow up that sweet pear dessert with a suitably glamorous trip to the local casino.

Something about the chandeliers and bright lights of casinos always goes down particularly well after a lavish meal. And seeing as the Betway online gaming site allows you to to get a sign up bonus so that you can quickly and cheaply play their roulette and poker games, it’s provided a pretty good distraction whilst waiting for friends to turn up on a pre-casino meal!

There are also some great apps that can help you find out a little more about the evening’s meal too. I particularly like reading some Malaysian recipe ideas on the Cook Malay app so that I can find out which spices make each of the dishes so appetising. And the app is also good for explaining what some of the more mysterious items on the menu are too!

And then if I’m being particularly lazy and can’t face heading out on an evening, I simply fire up the Deliveroo app and enjoy great takeout food from real restaurants whilst playing some of those endlessly enjoyable casino games - all from the comfort of a smartphone!

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…
