Xin Seafood Village At Kuala Sepetang

DAY OUTING.... To the valleys, Kuala Sepetang and Taiping town. 

Started off the one hour journey without breakfast in Ipoh, leaving more space in our tummies for food in Kuala Sepetang.  Just a glass of fresh fruit juice in the morning and off we went.  Drove one round in Taiping town and then it was almost 11am.  By then my stomach was already calling for "Food, food... please" ... and from Taiping, another 15 minutes drive to Kuala Sepetang.  

Stopped at a fish village to get some of dried seafood stuff.... four of us ended up buying a few packets each.... and from there, we walked to the nearby open air Xin seafood restaurant facing the river bay.  We ordered a few dishes including crabs and I was surprised that the price was quite reasonable... 
This is Kuala Sepetang, a small fishing village near Taiping...
The dried stuff being dried under the hot sun... 
Salted fish in making.... 
I like to eat salted fish but have not done so for a long time already
after hearing and reading so much about them.... 
And from Xin restaurant, the fishing village could be seen.... 
Fishing boats at dock.... 
Very patriotic too... 
As for the food....
Fried prawns... 
Sambal Kangkung....
Oyster omelette....
Cuttlefish with dried chillies... 
Noodles for two but it came out in such a big portion... 
Steamed crabs... 
Halfway through the meal.... 
Yes, mostly are leftovers... they are not wasted though... 
We finished the crabs but not the rest.... 
The remainder were taken back for dinner.... 
Meal above cost around RM118...
We eat, we buy.... and soon... 
Bye Bye!

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 …
