Dim Sum Area And Desserts Corner, Ipoh

NO MATTER HOW HEAVY TRAFFIC IS, it did not deter us from going and joining in the crowd at the Dim Sum area aka Leong Sin Nam Street during the Chinese New Year period.  Along the same row and around the vicinity, there are around five to six shops selling Dim Sum and Ipoh is actually quite famous for the varieties.  The one we aimed for that morning was Yoke Fook Moon restaurant.  The only setback is the parking, it is like striking a lottery if one can get a parking nearby.

We took a chance on that morning, it was almost 10am and my son said maybe there might be a parking as we turned into the road leading to the Dim Sum street.  Well, to our amazement, his wishes came true, one car was reversing out!  Wahhhh... indeed we struck lottery... parking lottery, that is!  LOL.... First hurdle overcome... and the second one is finding a table for 7 of us is another problem.  We have to do what we don't like others to do to us... we stood behind those patrons who were about to finish... LOL.... NO choice, that is the only way to make them "uncomfortable" and moved on without lingering longer than usual.  Festive seasons is always like that.... in IPOH!
The youngsters quickly filled up the table with lots of "goodies"
and replenishing them every now and then...
Eating time is great... paying the bill is another different matter..
It came to a whooping RM240...
Never happened before in IPOH till this time round.. LOL...
Fantastic Crowd at that moment of time.... 
After our brunch fix, we went to town to buy some biscuits....
Stopped by a mini corner shop for some desserts... 
Cendol at its best!
Creamy and santanic... 
One for the album while waiting to be served....

  1. Dim sum breakfast is getting to be a very expensive breakfast even in Ipoh. I didn't ask how much was our dim sum breakfast on the 1st day of CNY because the bill was settled by the young lady.

  5. Wow! That was a lot of dim sum!

    Haha. In certain places, we are required to stand behind the persons where they almost finish so we could take their table. But most places are more civilised. We wait in queue and once a table is empty, we rush in and take it.

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 …
