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.  :)

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
