I met up with another few ex-colleagues at Berjaya Time Square for lunch. This was a last minute arrangement since I managed to get transportation there.
We had lunch at Vivo Pizza for convenience.
We decided to go with the daily specials which includes a soup. The soup which comes with the combo is cream of mushroom soup.
I had a Spicy Tuna Melt with crinkle fries. It was a big serving.
The rest of my ex-colleagues had the New York Fish and Chips. I’m glad to be able to meet up despite the last minute arrangement. However, there are lesser of the old staff left that I know now.
After breakfast, we strolled in Ikea, mostly window shopping. Then we walked over to Ikano Power Center and also checked out Curves. But the open air concept in Curves was not pleasant to me as it was hot and humid.
After all the walking and sweating, we felt hungry again. My sister in law brought me to Desa Aman Puri for a late lunch. We went to 168 Pan Mee. Despite that it was already late lunch hour, the place is full.
We had the soup version of Pan Mee. The difference of the pan mee here from others is that they don’t have fried anchovies.
I like the texture of the hand torn noodle, with irregular thickness.
We had iced “Suen Mui Kat” (lime juice with sour plum) for our drink.
Ben’s sister brought me out on a Saturday. We went to Ikea for a late breakfast.
We shared a few items. The item that we cannot find in Ikea in Canada is the chicken wing and spring roll.
I think the Ikea in Vancouver has less pastry option than here.
Chicken wing is great for snack. Continue reading
My father brought me back to our old home in Taman Sri Sinar to have a look.
We had dinner there as there are a lot of eateries there. We had Barley water for our drinks. RM3.20 (about CAD1) for two glasses.
There is a Satay stall there, cooking satay on charcoal fire.
There is also a grilled chicken wing stall, also with charcoal. Continue reading
After lunch, my ex boss suggested us to try a popular cake from Lavender.
Lavender is a bakery just around the corner.
What catches my eyes was the box used to store the cake. Continue reading
I met up with my ex-boss and ex-colleague in 1Utama Shopping Center on a Friday afternoon.
My ex-boss suggested western food because he was tired of Chinese New Year food. We had lunch at Dave’s Bistro Bar Grill.
We started off with Dave’s signature Caesar Salad with lots of bacon bits. It was quite a big serving at RM29.50 (about CAD9).
Then we had a Hawaiian Pizza with streaky bacon. The regular size is RM37 (about CAD12). Continue reading
I had a simple brunch of dried meat sandwich at home. During Chinese New Year, a lot of people buy dried meat as gift.
The sandwich is a pretty handy meal. It’s easily transportable without messiness and the bread will not get soggy. You can even assemble the sandwich only when you want to eat it because nowadays, the dried meat is mostly pack individually for freshness.
For dinner, I had a dried version of Pan Mee. It is RM6.50 (about CAD2).
Since I ordered the dried version, the broth came on the side. Continue reading
I met up with another ex classmate after 36 years of losing contact. We were school mates from primary school to high school.
She and her husband brought me back to my old home town, Ayer Panas, Setapak. The above pool is a natural hot spring where the town name originates. The hot spring was once a public pool. Now it belongs to a residence complex. The public can still access the pool with a small fee, RM 1 for soaking your legs and RM 2 for taking a bath.
We also visited our schools. There is not much change to the primary and high school. However, we were amazed by the growth of our secondary schools as there is a 7 stories new block now.
After touring the schools, my ex classmate brought me to Tea Garden on Jalan Genting Klang for late lunch.
We had some dim sum here. Fried Taro Cake. Continue reading
On the fifth day of Chinese Year New, my sister and family and I went back to my father’s place for Chinese New Year greetings (“Pai Nian”). After that we brought along my father to visit my second uncle from my late mother’s side of the family, i.e. my late mother’s late second sister’s family.
Another version of Chinese New Year Candy Box.
The next stop was to the fourth brother of my late mother, i.e. my fourth uncle. My fourth auntie bought a lot of Chinese New Year goodies. She only made “Kuih Kapik” for Chinese New Year.
Some deep fried dough in the shape of ribbons. Continue reading
