Two Meet-Ups, Three Meals On A Beautiful Day

HOW I SPENT MY DAY.... 

Sacrificed my sleep, waking up earlier than usual and out from my house at 8am to First Garden to have a nice breakfast and most importantly, to meet up with my ex-colleagues, catching up with the latest "gossips" from one another.  LOL... Those days I used to rush back to the office after breakfast but it is so different now.  Eat with peace and leisure, enjoying every moment lingering at the coffeeshop with my gang and this only happens once awhile.... 
This piping hot of meehoon with fish cost RM8 now!
From those days when I was still working, it cost around RM5.50.....
What a difference... but then... once awhile, just eat and enjoy!
As Hokkien saying, "ku ku jip pai"  
LOL... 

After the meet-up with the gang, I went home and lazed around the laptop till my second meet-up with a blogger whom I got to know not too long ago... Her name is Irene Chan and she is a sweet young lady who is still working, unlike yours truly.  Actually she came to my blog and commented and I went over and somehow, I know she is Ipoh nang too... and that transpires our meet-up and we chose this place for our rendezvous.... 
Irene suggested this place O'Days and I am so glad she did...
It is my second time here in this place.... 
And there are much more varieties compared to the last time I came... 
I arrived first and she came soon after.. 
I could recognize her immediately when she entered and vice versa....
Well, easy only after all, which lady sits alone and which lady comes in alone, right?  LOL... 
Before we began our "questioning", we ordered some desserts over our chat... 
Since both of us had a good heavy breakfast, we just wanted something light... 
And we settled for these... quality kuehs... 
They cost RM1.50 each.. no joke!
Three of these... RM4.50...
Mini Otak Otak... RM2.50
And two glasses of tangerine... not sure how much...
Cos the tab was on Irene.... 
And for those who doesn't know Irene, here she is!
If curious, this is Her Blog.
Thank you Irene for taking off your precious time to meet Reanaclaire... 
And for the Sweet Temptation's Treat.... 
Yes, do keep in touch for more meet-ups, K!!
I thought I would be skipping dinner after those sweet desserts... 
But no, the temptation for fried rice was too great!
Ended up "walloping" a plate of my fried rice before I finally call it a Day....
*patting my tummy*
A very productive and foodful day indeed!

  1. Hahahah! Claire, you beat me to it. I have a few more minutes before I need to get ready for another meet-up with another friend. So I thought I'd check to see if you have a new post. It sure was a great time meeting you and getting to know you in person. Somehow it was like meeting an old friend, coz I already know quite a bit about you from your blogs.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
