Let's Tea Together

WHENEVER I CHECK IN TO HOTELS in different states or countries I go to, I always remember to bring back the tea bags or coffee packets with me each time I check out.  I do not drink coffee till today but I do start drinking tea nowadays, especially those Green Tea or Jasmine Tea.  These tea are best consumed after a heavy meal while they are still brewing hot, take them sip by sip... hmmm... that is the satisfaction.   As I eat out so often especially those oily dishes, the first thing I go home, I would get my Ecooe Glass Teapot to make a nice and hot drink and slowly sip it while I relax.  But I know my body system pretty well, I do not consume tea in the late evening, the best time for me to drink is during or after breakfast or lunch.

Alright, how do I brew my Herbal Tea?  I do it according to the beginner's guide as in the website here.  

1)  Put in 2 teaspoons of any loose leaf tea for every cup (8oz) of tea.  As for my case, I use loose Green Tea, (heard that one can lose weight effectively drinking green tea daily)  
2)  Rinse the tea.
3)  Then fill the teapot with hot water and leave it for 3-5 minutes to let it steep in.
4)  Take out the infuser if you like, as for me, I like to leave the infuser in so that I can replenish it with hot water anytime I finish drinking.

I really like my cute little Ecooe Glass Teapot which is purchased through Amazon here, so convenient and easy to use and wash.  No more using a filter to separate the tea whenever it is poured out. Among other tea leaves, there are also Ginger Tea, Lemon Balm Tea, Rosehip Tea, Chamomile Tea which suits my taste pretty well.  Now I am thinking of getting some Peppermint and Lemongrass tea, I heard that they are really beneficial to my body system, as to taking off "wind and gas" especially I eat out quite so often.  As Chinese always use to say, "Let's go Yam Char" (drinking tea), it also means Tea brings  Family and Friends together.  :)

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
