Three States Before Chinese New Year

FROM SG BULOH TO IPOH THEN TO PENANG...

These short trips were made from one Sunday to another Sunday.... We spent four days in Sg. Buloh, traveled back to Ipoh for two nights and then went up north to Penang for one night.  The trip up north was impromptu, since I was not the driver, I just followed the young ones for a night stay.  What I worried was the traffic jam, I was expecting the worst but to our relief and delight, the drive to Penang was very smooth.  Of course, inside the island itself, the traffic was super heavy, this time we played smart, we used Grab car services to ferry us around...
A short walk around the 1-U mall... 
Came here for Go Noodles and Bubble tea... 
Very nice feel of the CNY decorations..
In the evening, we had our dinner at Hakka Ren Restaurant... 
We ordered 5 dishes.. somehow only these three were taken...
Must be due to the reason that we were too hungry by then!
Back in Ipoh, we went to court... badminton court!
Two hours of sweat... sauna for us....
For dinner we had Vietnamese food... 
Vietnamese salad...
And the rest of the dishes... I did not manage to take... 
yes, super hungry again!
From Ipoh to Penang... 113, Lebuh Melayu... 
This place is a Must for us... 
Again, no food pictures cos I posted this place a couple of times already... 

We took Grab services from hotel... Cost only RM5.. better than driving and walking!
And for coffee lovers, this was taken at Nordin Street, 
right in front of Cititel Express Hotel
where we stayed for one night.... 
We booked a family room for 4 of us, cost around RM270.00.
The next day we checked out around noon and reached Ipoh in less than 3 hours.

  2. You sure get around, don't you? But then again, it is so easy for you all there, such nice highways...not like our inter-town roads, all ruined by the half-dead, not really moving construction of the Pan-Borneo Highway. Used to take one and half hours to get to my girl's school in the jungle, now 2 and half, 5 hours return, 10 hours every week on the torturing roller coaster drive.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
