Breakfast At Sixth Half Coffee, Ipoh

CAFE-ING TIME in the morning when I woke up... Went out at 9am to meet up with a stranger to see a house... no, no, I am not buying any property, I just went on behalf and took some videos and then sent to the person concerned.  Part time broker?  LOL.... I think it is not successful, I did not receive any feedback after sending out videos... failed mission!  No worries, there are always more coming, no need to be anxious.   Then I went for breakfast with my friend, that is... actually the best part of the day! We went to Sixth Half Coffee at the Canning Business Point for our breakfast.  First question upon entering... "Do you have a reservation?" No, we did not book, nevertheless we were ushered in to a table for 4 cos another friend would be joining us too.  We were gently reminded that the table we were sitting was actually reserved at 11am.... Good, we have an hour plus to tete-a-tete....  We ordered a simple breakfast....  Not sure what this is called.... Breakfast 428.

Eating Out At Bandaraya And Bercham, Ipoh

BREAKING FREE.....  Thank God that Ipoh is free from any new cases for the past few days.  Hope it stays that way and our country will be Covid free in days to come and we can start to move around freely again.  I do not mind wearing masks or scanning MySejaterah from now on as long as I can go traveling again!  LOL... Yesterday we had our breakfast at Bandaraya restaurant near Paragon Hotel.  It has been a year or so since we last had our food there.  The famous stall is the one selling Pan Mee but we did not order that for our breakfast.  Instead we ordered something simple and yet, it lasted me nearly the whole day after eating that. Yes, the glutinous rice.... a big plate of it too...  Of course, I shared, I couldn't finish such a big portion... The whole set cost RM6.40 minus the coffee.... Around noon, we went out again.... I didn't really want to take lunch... But after reaching this place here in Bercham, I forgot I was full....  A small stall selling the above menu plu

Reanaclaire Sharing Is Not Only Caring

My journey as an influencer/blogger have been a great and memorable one. I, of course, owe this to the audience and community who have been with me over the years. Their support, encouragement and engagement with my content have been the motivation for my work throughout this journey. The beginning of this journey is just a humble, small start. My interest in blogging was sparked in 2008, while looking at the blog of my son and discovering the community he built around it. I felt at that time, starting one for myself would have given me a great opportunity to share my stories, my thoughts, and engage with people all around the world. My expectations were definitely too high. The beginning was a small audience consisting of my close friends and associates. Our medium of interaction grew, and deeper thoughts were able to be conveyed as more time were taken to construct our messages. Their feedback and comments also helped me improve my writing, helping me to engage them better through

Japanese Dinner At Mokuren, Ipoh

MOKUREN...One of the best Japanese food I ever tasted in Ipoh, not a chain restaurant but solely owned by a couple, whom I heard is from Japan.  Not verified true or not, what I know is that their dishes are kind of special and different from the ones I have tasted.  Mokuren is just one shop lot, can only holds 25 customers at one time....*that was what I read last night at their door* Since there are limited tables, customers have to call up to make reservations.  That was what I did, I called up around noon to book a table for dinner yesterday.  Table for 4 at 6.30pm and we arrived 5 minutes late, still acceptable...  A few diners were at the entrance but I guess they did not make reservation, they left.  Stepping into Mokuren, one couldn't help feeling the cozy and homely ambiance and that was how I felt.  It has been several years since I last dined there, I think I will go more often cos the food there is not only nice and tasty, the prices are reasonable as well.   For the fo

The Main And The Side Orders Of Breakfast

ON TWO DIFFERENT MORNINGS... I went out with two different group of friends and to two different places which I have not been before. One of my friends wanted to try out the Great Wall in town area, along Jalan Lau Ek Ching.  There are now two Great Walls in Ipoh besides the one in Beijing, of course.  LOL... In these two Great Walls in Ipoh, there are no steps to climb, they serve food and coffee instead.   I am not a coffee lover, instead of coffee, I always ended up ordering barley or just plain water instead.  However my friends will order their fix for the day, Kopi C Kau (thick) or Kopi C Pok-Pok (dilute)... Coffee lovers will know what I mean!  At the Great Wall along Lau Ek Ching Street...  Our breakfast... And I tried a bit of this and that....  Half of the Nasi Lemak.... A bit of curry noodles.... RM9.90 A bit of this to try out the kaya....  And one of these....  My breakfast is done! This morning we came by here.... Bercham.... We ordered Fish Noodles....  Same orders for t

Should You Cook Fresh For Your Pet?

Homecooked Food At 130 Cafe, Ipoh

CAFE 130... That is what we used to call her when she invited us for dinner! My friends and I love having dinner in her house cos she serves homecooked dishes most of the vegetables are homegrown as well.  We were invited to her home again few days ago and I did not particularly asked what dishes she was going to cook.  I just told her that I would be bringing one dish, a tiny dish.... LOL....  We reached her house around 5pm and everything was ready except for the bean sprouts which she was going to blanch as soon as we reached.  That is so thoughtful of her.... bean sprouts is best eaten while they are still fresh and hot.  As soon as she saw what my friend brought, she suddenly exclaimed... "Öh no, I forgot to cook rice!"   Fret not, fret not... I told her... we are not rice eaters nowadays and a big bowl of fried wanton noodles cooked by my friend, that is more than enough for the four of us!  LOL.... Good thing she did not remember to cook rice...  Otherwise there would

Irresistible Delights At August Healing Cafe, Ipoh

AUGUST HEALING...Yes, it is healing alright... healing my sweet tooth!  LOL..  I came across August Healing via Facebook, a food blogger by the name of Darren Talkie-Talk .  A friend recommended me to look through his Facebook pages and I think from today onwards, my waist will surely grow sideways!  The more I scrolled, the more salivating I become.... oh my goodness, I did not know Ipoh has so many new delights which I have not tried yet. Looking at those photos, I love to sink my teeth into all these sweet temptations which were staring back at me! LOL...  Started off the day going to Tong Ki noodles in old town for breakfast, we had a light breakfast, knowing that we were going to have desserts after that!  From old town, we drove up to Theatre Street and looked for August Healing, No: 18A.... and it is just located one shop away from Aun Kheng Lim shop famous for their salted chicken.   August Healing is on the first floor and we stepped into a nice, clean, quiet ambiance.  We wer
