Pre CNY Dinner With Ex-Classmates At Kok Thai, Ipoh

PRE-CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION WITH MY EX-CLASSMATES...

Two of my ex-classmates from Kuala Lumpur came back to Ipoh for the weekend.  They gave us more than a week's notice to plan for their home coming dinner on the very day they arrived.

It was a Friday and a very cooling one indeed for it rained heavily while we were on the way to Kok Thai Restaurant.  The rain has been good to us, it did not pour when my friend came and fetched me.  But it was pouring dogs and cats just a few minutes after I got into the car.  Traffic was very heavy and it took us more than half an hour to reach the place.  And guess what.... the rain stopped when we reached the restaurant... totally stopped!  And the rain continued again, this time was less heavy... Really Thank God for we did not get wet at all... with our makeup, high heels and all.... LOL... Ladies!!

Before my other friends arrived, we made our order first and by the time they arrived, the food were ready to be served.  Good timing!  As usual, ladies have lots to catch up with one another.... our mouths were super busy, we can really multi-task when it comes to gathering like this...
Since there are only 7 of us, we ordered a S size to start off with...
Loe Sang as the Appetizer...
Followed by the Hoi Mei Poe aka Seafood variety in Claypot...
Vegetarian Assam Curry...
Pork ribs with ginger and mushrooms in Claypot...
Kai Lan with Yam... 
And among the dishes, this is still the Best of them all.... 
Just four dishes for the 7 of us...
We are small eaters ma... ahemmmm..
See... don't we look like small eaters?
To my lovely ladies, 
Gong Xi, Gong Xi... 
Wishing one another Good Health and Happiness...

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…
