Our Weekend Indulgence In Penang

DROVE UP NORTH TO PENANG ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AROUND 3PM...
By the time we reached the island, it was almost... almost time for dinner.  After checking in to the hotel, we adjourned for food and more food at this food paradise island...

First stop at Free School Garden food court, it opens day and night, plenty of varieties over there at the stalls, only problem is that the stomach cannot fill in much... LOL... I think it is something to do with age.. my age, I mean.. My eyes are wide but the mouth is too small...
Ended up taking a plate of Fried Koay Teow... RM6 or RM7
And steamed crabs which cost RM64!
Went to Chulia Street for more food... it is famous for Wanton noodles.. 
But stomach cannot put in anymore main meal... 
Wanted something lighter ... 
A better choice with a mixture of fish and greens...
RM5 for 11 pieces and I love the generous crispy garlic toppings... 
Next morning we went to Pulau Tikus... 
One of the coffeeshops famous for their Fried Mee... RM6
Hokkien prawn noodles RM6
One whole egg!
Very tasty too... 
We ordered a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng to share... 
And we could not resist the Pasembur as well.... RM9.50
For afternoon tea, I had Laksa at Ayer Itam... Rm4
Too full for anything else...
Then later at night we went to Jelutong Market for Koay Kak... 
And vegetarian meehoon which is quite popular around that area.... 
Ended the meal with sweet dessert called "Everything IN"
A mixture of 10 ingredients or more.... RM4 
Monday morning before we depart, we had Dim Sum at Macalister Road... 
And reached Ipoh around noon...
This is our "Weekend Indulgence"...
Back to simple homecooked food in Ipoh!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
