Country Roads, Take Me Home

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING and had our breakfast at Star Dust Casino restaurant, just five minutes drive away from our hotel, Silver Legacy.  The breakfast meal is only around $4.99 per person and it comes in a complete set... each of us took one set though I am surprised at myself that I could finish one whole meal by myself!!  American Breakfast... never before I ate such a Big Meal... Since there were six of us, they gave us a private room...

After our heavy breakfast, we went for a day trip to Virginia City, an old cowboy town famous for its gold mine those days.... and on the way, the song Country Roads came to my mind....Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains.. Shenandoah River.....
Our all time American Breakfast.... 
My order is the first top left... Nice?
And our journey started... from highway to the mountains...
Passing residential houses on the way....
And going UP and UP....
Very high UP in fact....
Taken from the moving car...
And we stopped half way to breathe in the scenery....
We followed the cyclist down the steps.... 
Going to the edge of the mountain....
To capture this scene from the top...
The man who built this.... 
Dr. D.M. Geiger.... 
I have to be very careful though.... cannot afford to slip....
Yes, I need some assistance to go up the steps....to the very top!
Blue Ridge Mountains..
The wind was really strong...
\
That was the highest I could go.... 
The wind was heard howling... 
And I quickly went down the steps before I get blown away...
If Not for the heavy American Breakfast, I Might be blown...
LOL....

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
