One of the best buys at Chatuchak, I customised a tote bag for myself! There’s also t-shirts, mugs and caps.

Did so much shopping.

Legs are dying.

Tea break at McDonald’s, trying their new spring roll pie. Really is just spring roll with a different ‘crust’.

Dropped our bags at the hotel and out we go for dinner at Featherstone Cafe. Going to meet the guys who arrived in Bangkok today.

It’s a very beautiful place.

Took a look around the whole cafe while we are waiting for the food to come.

There’s an area spelling trinkets, healing stones and hats.

Look at the drink! This is Wild Gardenia, got this because of the colourful ice cubes. I feel like Alice in Wonderland.

Food was good overall but the braised beef cheek which was from their new menu wasn’t, so that was a risk.

bangkok day 1 – greyhound cafe . pla thong mookata

Too early.

First time we had to take the airport shuttle to board out planes.

20180820_0009596705653264935585284.jpg

_

Once we have left our luggage at the hotel, we went to get some snacks at 7-eleven, as the Greyhound Cafe at Siam Center isn’t opened yet. Yes, we arrived Bangkok very early.

Decor in Greyhound Cafe was beautiful. Loved the greens.

20180820_0010492915839992791400737.jpg

The food wasn’t as good as we expected though. Beef was chewy tough and pork was a little tad dry. Drinks was alright but I wouldn’t go back for just the drinks if the food wasn’t good.

Massage done.

Then it was dinner at Pla Thong Mookata. It was the girl’s first time having mookata in Bangkok.

Starbucks Reserve at Central World.

Finally got to see our hotel room at the end of the day.

Although the toilet looks like it was build to be shared. One side toilet, the other side shower but there’s only one door which slides to whichever side that was in use. *face palm* Door was quite translucent too, can see shape and colour, so we can’t even use the basin while somebody is showering or pooping or peeing.

malaysia day 4 – penang . coming home . assemble bed frame

Sunrise.

_

Curry mee. Love that they have pig’s blood cake, it’s sad that Singapore no longer allows stalls to sell it. Add curry chilli if you like and it’s not too spicy.

Toast was just planta, dip in sugar. =(

_

Coming back.

_

After I was done clearing the luggage, I headed to the new house as I have deliveries from Taobao to receive. Mum came along and helped me to open the packages and shifted some heavy furniture, so that I can assemble some of them after she left.

The is not helping. Fml. Took us so long to figure it out and the parts that we have was different. *Cries* Luckily I’m good at it thanks to Ikea.

malaysia day 3 – cameron highlands to penang

Starting the day at Hong Kong Hotel & Restaurant with curry chicken chee cheong fun (not like kampar’s but still yums) and an iced kopi, somehow we always end up here for breakfast.

_

Headed to Cactus Point first, didn’t take any pictures because came here a few times already. I bought some packs plant seeds and then went to pang sai. Muahahahaha!

Then it was the market, quite boring because the shops all sell the same kind of stuffs; strawberries, corn, fruits & veggies, cordyceps. I did get my steamed corn here as a snack while on the way to penang.

_

There’s a tiny amusement park with very cheap rides, great if you have kids. The excavator ride was RM6.00.

Flowers outside, I took these with screenshot while video-calling with Sis. Not bad huh?

_

Wanted to visited the Lavender Farm but figured that it should the same like the rest of the farms, so we decided to proceed to Penang.

_

Got this at one of the rest stops once we got to the foot of Cameron Highlands. Overly drenched with sauce. Ewww. Not nice. Lucky it’s only RM2.

_

Took out my corn, I picked the kernels out one by one and just nice finish everything once we reach our first stop in Penang.

_

Sat in Joo Hooi Cafe and the shop owners will start coming to you asking if you want to order anything from their stall.

We had the popular Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul. It was refreshing for the hot weather.

Duck egg char kway teow. Yum yum!

Forgot to take picture of the oyster egg omelette but this is the stall.

And Penang Laksa. Woohoo!

_

Bought some pastries at the bakery beside. The filling in the egg tart is very good; thick and flavourful, crust may be a little dry. Kaya puff is not too sweet. I’ll get more if I come back to Penang next time.

_

Checked in to the apartment and we got sea view! (Airbnb link here)

_

Went shopping at Tesco then it was dinner at Presgrave Street Hokkien Prawn Mee, there are also others stalls within the shop.

The soup base is good but I personally find it too spicy for me to enjoy, even my parents couldn’t handle the it. Dad got a headache after.

Wanton mee was a letdown, I ordered large and it was just a huge pile of noodles. Blergh.

Oyster egg omeletter sucks too.

And what’s with all the chilli in all the dishes? =( Got chilli doesn’t mean it’s good. I can only say something is good when they do not use overly spicy chilli, that is when one can truely taste the flavour of the dish.

_

Hazelnut Luxe Magnum! This is good!

malaysia day 2 – kampar to cameron highlands

Early breakfast to start the day. Ice milo as usual, then there’s wanton soup (not the best but still good) and the fried items (last night’s at the curry chee cheong fun tastes much better).

_

Off we go to start our first activity of the day.

Tomb sweeping.

_

Coconut for the hot weather.

Pokemon gym-ed

While Mum waits for us.

_

Durian-ed

We used to bath in here with water from the well, before things start to fall apart. I will go in together with my cousin, each of us will have a scoop of water in our hands and we will splash each other because it takes a lot of courage to pour the first scoop of cold water on ourselves.

Chicken.

_

Lunch and we weren’t expecting vegetarian food, this place wasn’t vegetarian the last time we visited which is very long ago.

_

On the road to Cameron Highlands.

Mountain watch. This is where marble tiles from from.

_

Stopped at a farm, nephew enjoyed strawberry picking.

_

Dropped our pokemons in a quiet gym.

_

Got to our rented apartment, didn’t take pictures of the place (Airbnb link here) but here’s my bed for the night.

View outside from the living room.

_

Went to a small night market, the famous night market is not open today.

Bought ramly burgers but not nice one let. The bread is stale and jelak. Patty quite tasteless too.

Fried chicken was pretty good but I was too full to enjoy it.

_

Dinner at C Buddy Steamboat
We got the set for RM 49.90, tom yam and clear soup is free. I ordered corn soup which I feel is very nice, have to add on RM 11.90 for it. Think the set is enough to feed 3 to 4 persons.

malaysia day 1 – penang to kampar

Flying off to Penang with parents for our annual tomb sweeping, so glad for Qing Ming, at least I get to go back once every year.

_

Landed! Now grabbing some snacks and my beloved iced milo (only when in Malaysia) while we wait for the rental cars to come. Kaya toast was stale, rojak tasted just alright.

_

Yay! I have the whole back car seat for myself, I could lay down and watch the clouds go by.

_

Lunch first at Super Tanker Food Centre before we head to Kampar. There aren’t a lot of shops open at the time we reach at 4pm.

I recommend this roast meat stall, especially the char siew. You will get a bowl of soup if you are having rice and it’s a very awesome soup even if it’s cooked with leftover scraps.

Char kway teow, awesome. If only you could see how translucent it is.

_

Always a good thing to be sharing our location, so we know where the cars are.

_

Dinner before we head home, if not nobody will want to head out for dinner. Hahaha!

I must have my curry chee cheong fun and this stall is only available at night. They have the best fried items to go with your main.

Glutinous rice, don’t forget to add curry sauce.

_

Bought two bottles of Calpis yogurt drink, Mango and Grape. Mango tastes like orange, Grape tastes mild.

marina bay carnival . two chef’s

Quick lunch at Shunfu Market, most of the stalls are closed and I don’t really want to eat char kway teow because seriously not a fan of Singapore-style char kway teow.

_

TC’s partner gave use $400 worth of credits for the rides and games at the Marina Bay Carnival, so here we are! We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have these credits because just the games alone are $5 per try. Feels good to play for free.

Peppa pig is the cutest plush out of all games. Should have just spend everything here to get it. Haha.

Played bumper car with the whole gang, it was really fun! I haven’t played this for a long long time, used to play with my cousins (a lot of us) and we will take over the whole place. Fun times, fun times.

_

Saw this in Hamley’s Toy Shop, so cute!

_

Two Chefs, for cheap and good tze cha.

_

Planning for our trip to Hokkaido! Yes la, looking forward.
