Our Virgin Drive To City Square, Johor

JOHOR CITY SQUARE?

Oh, oh, I thought she was kidding when she wanted to go there this morning... just the two of us who have never drove outside our residential area before.  All we know is that City Square is in the Johor city and how to go there, we have to rely on our gadget, Waze and nothing else.  And so.. she dares.. and I have to go along with the "dare"...

Before we started off, I have to doubly confirm with her.. make sure her phone has battery, mine has only 20% left cos I did not expect to go to the city this morning.  And off we set out... with the nice steady voice of the lady directing us all the way to the city where it is known as the "Cowboy town" those days.  Really.. why cowboy, I wonder....

Yes, we reached City Square without any hassle, thank God.. smooth drive all the way, no, I was not the driver, only the navigator... She is the "darer" one... actually come to think of the drive now, it is quite easy, all the way straight to the city and back, but with the Voice, we are more confident.
Disney products are on promotion at the lobby... 
No, we did not shop first.. 
Our stomachs were "growling" for Food.. and it was almost 11.30am!
We went looking for Go Noodles shop at Level 6
BUT
It is only opening on the 9 September!  
Someone received wrong info, for sure.... 
We chose Din Tai Fung instead... 
We don't have that in Ipoh... 
I told my girl.. No sharing this time...
Each of us must have one main meal.... 
This time we must try their famous Fried Rice with Shrimps... RM21.70
Indeed there are lots of them hidden inside... more than 10 shrimps, I think...
I looked at the table next to us.. 
Theirs are evenly shaped.. ours are out of shape... LOL...
She ordered a bowl of Lai Meen with vegetables n meat dumplings.... RM20.60
Huge portions actually.... 
But we managed to finish them all.... 
Oh yeah.. we must have some desserts after our meal.... 
Sesame Peanut Balls for RM9.50...
Yes, we shared this equally too...
Cos we love them!!
ahhhh... That is definitely One Heavy Meal... 
Will definitely last us till dinner... 
So what's for dinner? 
Guess.... it starts with B... 
LOL...

  6. hah..hah.. memang your fried rice was out of shape! There is a Din Tai Fung at 1-U and I find the taste of the food is quite mild for me. I like my food more jazzy if you know what I mean.

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…
