We stayed in Baba House which is within walking distance to most of the major attractions.
The parking lot of Baba House is at the rear. We did have some trouble getting to the rear due to misunderstanding the map which the receptionist provided us.
The Baba House features nyonya archicture and furnishings. One thing we noticed about houses here is that they are narrow and long/deep.
This is where breakfast is served. Continue reading
My sister and I went for an overnight trip to Melaka.
We stopped for tea at Ayer Keroh Restoran Jejantas, one of the few that exists in Malaysia. It’s a bridge across a highway that hosted some restaurants and shops.
Melaka is just about two hours drive from Puchong.
Since we arrived way before our check in time, we visited Mini Malaysia which is on the way to town center. Please note that foreign tourist pays more than double for an adult entry ticket.
There is a life bull cart at the parking lot for photography. Continue reading

After picking my niece up, we went to meet up with my brother in law for dinner.
We had dinner at Restoran Lan Je in Puchong.
This restaurant used to be very busy. It’s theme is one fish for one person.
The fish served in this restaurant is Tilapia and the fish is not big. That’s why its theme is one fish for one person.
We had two to share among four of us. The above was the spicy one. Continue reading

My niece (Ben’s brother’s daughter) picked me up for shopping and dinner on a Friday evening.

My father and I went out for a vegetarian dinner, unintentionally. I wanted to go somewhere new and my dad drove to a nearby strip mall that he has never been to before.
There are only two restaurants here; an Indian restaurant selling tandoori chicken which my father does not really like and this vegetarian restaurant. So, we settled with the vegetarian restaurant.
The restaurant was empty when we arrived.
I ordered a vegetarian claypot chicken rice. It has a strong sweet aroma of five spice powder. It was ok but lack of the satisfaction from the real deal.
My father had fried rice with vegetarian satay. The texture of the satay is more like ground meat.
We shared a bowl of bubur cha-cha for dessert. The purple sweet potatoes landed the sweet soap with a purplish hue.
The meal came to about CAD10.
I like the utensils holder, very traditional.
