Lai Kee Fish Ball Noodles, Tun Aminah, Johor

FROM THE NORTH BACK TO IPOH... Rested a night in Ipoh and the very next morning, we were on the roads again, this time to the very south of Malaysia... After our quick breakfast, we started out our long journey around 10am.

In our small trusted car, we drove six hours almost continuously, only stopping to go to the restroom and to change seats in the car.  She drove most of the way in fact, I only drove from Rawang to Seremban, a hour plus stretch but I was on Full Alert even though I was not driving.

Reached Johor around 4pm, I was hungry by then, ended up buying a packet of nasi kandar before checking in to our small little home.  Dinner was simple, we went to a nearby food court for wanton noodles.  Had a good early rest and the next morning, we were in full blast again.  We went to Tun Aminah Lai Kee for the fish ball noodles.... it is my second time there.
Each bowl of noodles came in with the standard set like this.... 
Waited more than half an hour... 
This shop is really crowded... 
While waiting, we can "attack" these crispy beancurd skin with fish paste... 
And these too....
An extra bowl for satisfaction... for the 4 of us... 
For two bowls of noodles plus the side dishes, it came to RM52 with drinks!
My girl opted for Lui Char... very nice, she said... 
Comes with a bowl of mint soup... RM6
That was for morning breakfast cum lunch, a 2 in 1 meal...
A big meal like that naturally will last us till dinner...
Johor, we are back again!

  6. Lei char RM8.00 here at Payung...but it's a classier cafe, not a coffee shop. Nice! I love fresh own-made fish balls, non-fried, love them in soup!

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 …
