My Red Babe At Car Clinic

FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I have to go to the car clinic....
Wednesday, did servicing on my car and that cost around RM150...
Thursday, servicing on my girl's car and that doubled the amount RM313 for a small car...
Friday, took my car again for repair this time... fixed front and back brakes and that cost RM220.. and that summed up to nearly RM700....

For the first time in history this morning, I left the car with the mechanic and walked few doors away to have breakfast alone.  One hour later, my car was still not ready... so I sat there and waited for another hour or more before my red babe is given the green light to go....

Front and back brakes needed to be replaced.....
Front is RM95 and back is RM65
Workmanship is RM60
He has a faithful helper around him each day so I am told....
Not one by two..... 
They come each day to "help" the boss around 11am...
And after lunch, they will leave... 
I put up this post for self-reminder and information....
My car is around 11 years old... 
this is the second time the brakes are changed as far as I can remember... 
Other than the brakes, my car is still in good condition...
That is a relief to hear.....

  5. It's good that you send your cars for regular checks. Women drivers like us need to ensure our cars are in tip top condition, otherwise we'll be really helpless when the car breaks down somewhere.

  7. Your car looks a bit like ours, Claire. I can't imagine how some people can afford more than one car.

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 …
