Spending The Whole Saturday With Friends

I received a call from a friend to inform that the meeting will be in Aeon Station 18, Ipoh. It was a nice Saturday morning and we were told to be there by 11 am. So by 10.30 am I was out of the house driving to Station 18. Someone came to pick us and took us to the Kedai Makan Ban Mee 101. The last time I ate here was in January this year - 11 months ago!
A bowl of "Loh Mee" for my brunch!
Didn't take photo of what my friends ate.
We ordered these crispy deep fried stuff bean curd sheet to share.
A glass of lemon ginger drink for me.
After brunch, someone decided to go all the way to Aeon Big in Falim!
The distance is about 9.5 km and that is supposed to be the shortest way.
My first snapshot of a Christmas tree in Aeon, Falim.
A white Christmas tree with gold decorations.
After walking around and looking at all the items on sale, we stopped here.
Another friend treated us to this very silky smooth ice cream.
It was a record breaking shopping day for me. Never in my life had I shopped for 8 hours! I had to find a place to rest my tired feet while my friends continue to shop. I really take my hat off to them. Not once did they mention about tired feet. Sigh, maybe it is because of my age!

By the time I reached home, I quickly took my bath and off we went to Bercham for our dinner date with another group of friends. A dinner gathering of 5 friends at Soo Har Yee restaurant. Some friends wanted to try the food here.
Steamed mixed seafood platter.
A must order dish if you are eating here.
Stir-fry yee meen (pre-fried noodle) for 2 people.
Instead of rice, we ordered noodles.
Stir fry vermicelli for 2 people.
Stir fry sambal belacan paku-pakis (local fern)
We ordered their signature Mud Crabs In Bread.
The server brought the bread to our table for us to take photo before she cut open the bread.
Mud crabs (2 crabs) in sweet sour sauce inside the bread.
My first helping on a small plate.
And a piece of fine cottony bread to eat with the sweet sour sauce.
Total cost of dinner came to MYR 248, shared by 5 friends.

It was a long day but a very eventful day indeed!
It is not always that we get to enjoy such an eventful day!

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say that

God made Abraham the father of many nations.

God will accept all people in every nation

who trust God as Abraham did.

And this promise is from God himself,

who makes the dead live again and speaks of future events

with as much certainty as though they were already past.

(Romans 4:17, The Living Bible-TLB)

Flowers And Critters From The Orchid & Rose Garden, Cameron Highlands

Just before checking out of the apartment, we wanted to visit another garden nearby. Only 4 of us were interested while the other 2 wanted to rest awhile in the apartment. It was almost 11 am and we used an umbrella and hat to protect us from the hot sun. This Orchid & Rose Garden is not visible from the main road, it was blocked by The Square building. It is within walking distance from the apartment. I took many snapshots of flowers and critters, and these are just a few of them to share on this post.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

For only we who believe God can enter into his place of rest.

He has said, "I have sworn in my anger that those

who don't believe me will never get in,"

even though he has been ready and

waiting for them since the world began.

(Hebrews 4:3, The Living Bible-TLB)

Breakfast At The New Kedai Kopi Macau, Taman Pertama

I woke up early but heard the sound of raindrops on the awning behind my house. I went to the washroom and then went back to sleep again. Can forget about the early morning walk.
By the time I unlocked the gate, it was about 7:10 am in the morning.
By then there was no raindrop and there was a bright sunrise.
 I was trying to capture the glowing clouds behind the rooftop opposite my house.
This was opposite side facing the sunrise.
*     *     *     *     *
We went to a new Kedai Kopi Macau (coffee shop) in Taman Pertama which a friend recommended to us. Address: 21, Lorong Taman Sembilan, Taman Pertama, Ipoh.
I ordered a bowl of curry noodle with a few stuffed ingredients.
I prefer my curry with yellow noodles.
Hubby's bowl of noodle with chicken claws, pig's stomach, intestines and white radish.
He prefers mixed noodles (flat rice noodle + yellow noodle)
We both ordered the bitter black Kopi O.

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

And by all means don't brag about being wise and good if you are bitter

and jealous and selfish; that is the worst sort of lie.

(James 3:14, The Living Bible-TLB)
