Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fa, Ipoh ( 奇峰豆腐花)

At the corner of Jalan theatre, hardly notice until when you saw a lot of people and cars parked right in front of the corner shop. That's the one we are looking for - Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fa.

Tau fu fa here is smooth and fresh. They opened at 10.00am and while stocks last. I believe, by 2-4 pm, they should be able to close shop. To avoid disappointment, be there early to taste the fresh tau fu fa or soya bean.

Price wise, i guess 1 bowl/glass of tau fu fa or cincau at rm0.80 is still consider reasonable. Take away service is also available.

They make their name famous on the local newspaper. Friendly service by the owners ( Tan family) and the staffs.

Restorant Foh San, Ipoh 富山茶楼

I'm truly a dim sum lover.

Some said, one must dine in Foh San dim sum in Ipoh, even though they are plenty of dim sum shops available in Ipoh town. Foh San restaurant had been relocated to its new building near to the Excelsior Hotel in Jalan Leong Sin Nam. Some bloggers still posted their old address.

Talk about dim sum, normally what we saw are the ladies pushing a trolley carrying a choice of dim sum from steamed item to deep dried item for customers to choose from. As usual, we point finger and select what we want..."This! this! this! and that!". At that moment. i have forgotten my diet plan.We ordered some such as yam paste with meat, pork bun, steamed pork ribs and also pork dumpling.

They even set a take away counter for the convenience of the customers to drop-off and take away.
New outlet of Foh San provides a comfortable and warmth environment for customers to spend a relaxing morning while enjoying delicious dim sum. This outlet is always crowded with local and the tourists. You must go earlier to get a table, as they are always busy with a heavy customers flow even during weekdays.

K-LINK Theme Dinner: "Green Up.Save Lives"

It's time for fun!

Our International delegates from all over the world entering Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach at 7.00pm. Most of them dressed in green, as per our Theme " Green Up. Save Lives". We are hoping to raise health awareness to the mankind and to save the mother earth.Guests are awesome in the party when the party music is on. They wish the night is always young!

Fireworks brighten up the sky as the singer, Linda sang " I LIKE K-LINK", where everybody sings and dance together. Linda is a very professional singer. She has a high vocal and good voice. She dedicated my favorite song named "I'll always love you" by Whitney Houston to me! All guests are amazed.
It's time for fun games. Emcee conducted the game on stage. There are 6 participants are invited on stage. They have to blow away the flour and dig out as much as candies in the plate with their mouth before the music stop.
The committee who put in so much hard work and time to make this event a success. Thanks and Bravo! Not forget to extend my appreciation to Sunway Lagoon who has a strong team given us full support and help.

Another event highlight during the party is the The Best Green Costume contest. As we can see, there are guests who really dress up creatively especially ladies who came from Thailand, Vietnam and Poland. The winner goes to Vietnam contestant.

To organize a party is never be a easy job. Some people find it fun, some find it challenging. For me, as long as any jobs or events assigned to me, i will definitely handle them close to perfection, ( even though there is no perfect thing in the world) from conceptualize, planning, program briefing, set up and execution. However, to have a team and strong team work is another important key to a wonderful event.

K-LINK Int' 10th Golden Years Anniversary 2010e

K-LINK International is celebrating its 10th golden years in Putrajaya International Convention Center (PICC).

The committee had been preparing for this big day months ago. The entrance ticket to the plenary hall have been sold out far before the actual day. Due to the overwhelming response, the Management had decided to use satellite broadcast the event in the plenary hall to another hall at the mezzanie floor so that more people will be able to join and witness the grand event.
Our delegates from all over the world filled up the Convention Center in the early afternoon.
The plenary hall is fully occupied even before the event starts at 8 pm.
Dance performance " Black or White" by Michael Jackson and group.
The Committee who put in so much hard work to make this event a success. Can see that everybody has a dark eye circle. We sleep less! we eat less! just for the big day. At the end of the event, we are happy and satisfy.
The program ended at about 1.00am. When all lights are dimmed and darken, i guess, i'm almost the last to leave the venue.

Cameron gateaway

Cameron Highlands is one of the most popular highlands retreat in Malaysia and normally this place will be swamped by a lot of tourists either from other states or other countries. This place is surrounded by lush untouched greenery with a climate reminiscent of a cool spring day, is the perfect place to gain sweet relief from the pressures of the city with the one you love.

We took a short walk of 174M up to the BOH Tea viewing point where this is a place to allow us overlooking the magnificent tea filled valleys, while enjoying the cool breeze. Take a stroll through lush tea bushes with non-stop of photo taking. Unfortunately due to its rest day on every Monday, we were unable to discover the process of transforming tea leaves into a delicate brew that tantalises the palate. We went on the wrong day!

Cactus Valley is one of the biggest and most popular tourist destination located at the cool mountains of Brinchang, Cameron Highlands. Not only cactus, there are also a lot of varieties of flowers are available for sales. Have a look! If you're not intend to buy, it's ok, just stop by to take as much as photos you like.

When the night dawn, after having steamboat dinner, we visited the chrysanthemum farms. I learned something new when the local farmer lead me through the farms. To enter into the private farms, one must drive a 4x4 car to go through a rough and narrow trunk road. Sound adventurous huh!

To make the chrysanthemum grows faster and taller, they have to be grew under the yellow light bulbs at nite. It took about 3-4 months to grow tall and ready to harvest. This upcoming batch are preparing to be supplied for Chinese New Year.

Flowers are ready to be distributed to the market. A sea of flowers which consist of many colours. I was so excited!

This kind of vegetable is famous among the locals and its easy to be found along the road side. This is nice to cook with balacan or white fermented tau-fu. On top of that, you must also try the cameron sweet corns. Can eat it raw without putting them into the wok. Yummy!

Cameron is famous for its big and sweet strawberries. We bought 2 packets at RM10. We finished all on the way back home.
Steamboat in the cool spring day is something enjoyable. They are plenty of shops which offering steamboat with all type of soups such as herb, tom yam and so on. Finally,we decided to try the charcoal steamboat.

I enjoyed the 2 days holiday gateway in Cameron Highlands. Frankly speaking, i found the hard time to travel up to Cameron as the journey is too tough and too many turning points. Luckily, i didn't vomit throughout the journey.

Birthday dinner at Elegant Inn Hong Kong Cuisine 雅轩Restaurant.

This was happened in April 2010 during my birthday. My eldest brother suggested to try the food here. This restaurant started its business in one of the discreet corner of Cheras. They serve Hong Kong cuisines with added touch of finesse.

This place is ideal for family gathering, business partners or any celebrations. There are VIP rooms and even open terrace night view facing KLCC.

For food wise, there are some signature dishes that highly recommended to food connoisseurs. For example, Mud Crab with salted egg yolk, Homemade tofu and salt and pepper HK Silver fish.

I personality like the Malay kuih. It's so tasty, fresh, soft and rich with Marjorie smell. Even though it's easier to melt in the mouth but the taste will last even longer in the mouth.

Breakfast at PHO 24, Hanoi

Pho 24 is a pho restaurant chain serving great Vietnamese pho noodle dishes. It has opened 73 outlets in Ho Chi Minh City, Ha Noi, Da Nang, Vung Tau, Nha Trang, Binh Duong, Jakarta (Indonesia), Manila (Philippines), Seoul (Korea), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Australia and Hong Kong.

This shop is opened 24 hours daily. They are famous with noodle soup with either beef or chicken. On top of that, they serve different type of snack food such as Vietnamese spring rolls.

I like to drink a cup of Vietnam Coffee every morning in Hanoi. Perhaps, i don't drink coffee in KL. This is because i need coffee to zest up the rest my day in Hanoi.

Food in Hanoi

This is a very local lunch at the road side.

This is how they prepare the food. Moreover, there are renovation is going on next door. I saw the dust lying on the tables and chairs.

Van Anh invited us for dinner at her house. She prepared a simple dishes for the night. According to the local, the pork and chicken in Hanoi are tastier than Malaysia. No doubt, i like the pork here, but not chicken. The chicken meat is too dry and skinny.

Hanoi is famous not only for its Vietnam coffee but also peanuts. The old lady in the picture below is the founder. Yes! I agreed that the peanuts here are crunchy and tasty. I brought a lot for the company staffs.

This stall serves famous beef noodles. Van Anh highly recommended this stall. However,
i have to agree with her.
