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.

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.

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

KL 2017 Sisters Crispy Popiah

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

We went to IOI mall but did not manage to buy anything. She showed me the restaurant that she is going to have her wedding dinner in March which is in IOI mall.

We had a light snack at this Sisters Crispy Popiah stall in the mall. It was voted the best popiah by Star People’s Food in 2014/2015.

KL 2017 Happy Yummy Vegetarian

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.

img_2670

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.

img_2661

The restaurant was empty when we arrived.

img_2663

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.

img_2664

My father had fried rice with vegetarian satay. The texture of the satay is more like ground meat.

img_2666

We shared a bowl of bubur cha-cha for dessert. The purple sweet potatoes landed the sweet soap with a purplish hue.

img_2668

The meal came to about CAD10.

img_2669

I like the utensils holder, very traditional.
