Friday's Close Work Lunch At Kim Wah Restaurant, Ipoh

CLOSE SHOP LUNCH IN PROGRESS...

For the past few years we make it a point to meet up to "close work" for the year before ushering in the New Year according to Chinese calendar.  "We" here are the ones working together for the past number of years, now most of us have retired except for a few younger ones left behind.  Now we retirees has outnumbered the working ones..... sooner or later, in another one or two years time, there will be only one young lady left behind... a lone ranger... while the rest of us are lazing around the house!  LOL...

Today is the day we meet up again... I went to my old office and met up with them.. and off we went to our designation, Kim Wah Restaurant in Farlim.  It was almost 1pm when we reached, Fridays are always jammed up everywhere.. the weather nowadays is flaming hot and other than that, we looked forward to our "Food Gathering" in the cool air con restaurant....
The Ten of Us... 
Half retirees, half workers... LOL...

  5. Wow.. the food so sumptuous ! I guess in this day and age of the working class, there won’t be so many gatherings of long time colleagues as people moves around as well as on contract work.

  7. It is wonderful that you keep in touch with your ex co-workers! Usually when we move away from friends, we say we will keep in touch. But rarely do. This is a very happy event!!

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?

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…
