The Chinese New Year Journey Down South

TIME TO REPORT BACK TO WORK AFTER THE FESTIVE SEASON....

After a long break, it is going down south again, we need to start work in order to bring food on the table.  Oh, not me though, I have my share of working already for the past thirty years or more.  It is time for me to sit back and see others work instead.  Aha.... no, I am just kidding...... Of course, I still work, only difference is that now there is no more boss hovering behind me, I am a so-called Home Minister or in other words a "Housemaid?"  LOL...  I am paid to manage the homes, I clean, I mop, I wash, I cook... these are endless work which I do not really like but have to....  The only consolation is that I can do at my own pace and time and get paid regardless... LOL.....

So... here I am with my Two Bosses... wherever they go, I follow.... This time I do not have to drive, I just have to sit back and relax for a few hours journey.   We stopped in Sg. Buloh for a break and we went to take the most expensive food court meal we ever had in our whole life!  Quote from son.
The Trio going on the journey with us.... 

Wherever they go, I just follow.... 
Stopped for a break in Sg Buloh corner coffeeshop...and had these....
And we also ordered this...
Fresh Garoupa with noodles...
Each of us ordered a bowl.... 
And a big bowl of Fish Balls.... 
For five bowls of noodles plus a bowl of Fish Head and Fish Balls, 
the bill came to a whooping RM160!
Believe it or not, it is true.... 
The lady was laughing when she collected the money but certainly not us... 
Well, I say it again... must be the Chinese New Year prices...
Then we proceeded on our journey after the "heavy" lunch.... 
Raining at certain parts...
Anyway, all was good, Thank God...
We reached our destination around 7pm just in time for dinner!

  5. I dis not know you had taken a job. But now you can choose your hours, and that is great! Here, we call these house tenders maids. One of my good friends does this. You can make pretty good money, and it is a good job for retired people. Being helpful is always good!

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
