Lunch at Heng Kee Fish Head Restaurant, Peel Road

Our retiree gang love to lunch at Heng Kee Restaurant at Peel Road.

Our retiree gang ;-)

We go there quite often to whet our appetite. Sometimes we share the bill, but very often it is being paid by a generous donor! Isn't that wonderful?

Our recent visit the restaurant recently shows that the owner had come out with a menu book that included many flavourful dishes.

Sharing some of the dishes that we enjoyed...

Top most in this photo collage is their signature dish: the steam fish head
More yummilicious dishes to enjoy!

Prices are inexpensive and suit our pockets superbly!

Looking forward very much to lunch at Heng Kee Fish Head Restaurant again.

Farewell Maxi, our dearest and beloved companion!

May 11th, 2016 had been a very, very sad day for my beloved spouse, John and I. (*tears*)

Our dearest, darling and beloved pet, Maxi had gone to heaven, a better place where there's no more pain and suffering. He had been sick for about 2 months with a weak heart and lungs, worsening as time progressed with water retention in his lungs.

It had been an ordeal seeing him suffering. R.I.P our lovable and adorable boy!

A poem by unknown author in tribute to our darling Maxi, a miniature pinscher....
You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend
. . . a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal -
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion,
Constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear,
the pawprints left by you."

Dim Sum at Restaurant Tim Ho Wan, Mid Valley

My beloved spouse, John and I were chauffeured by our darling elder son, David together with our daughter-in- law, Kellie to Mid Valley in Kuala Lumpur for lunch.

It was supposed to be a surprise... we weren't told at which eatery we were to dine.

We walked to Tim Ho Wan restaurant and were surprised at the lunch crowd. This restaurant was voted #1 in 2015 as the best restaurant in Asia. No wonder it is so very popular.

It served Hong Kong style dim sum and other favourite classic dishes.

Some of the delightful Hong Kong style dim sum
All the dishes were so flavourful and yummilicious that needed no sauces at all. We thoroughly enjoyed eating all the delightful dishes.

Hmm... looks like it is not necessary to fly to Hong Kong to enjoy their kind of special dim sum!

Will definitely return again to this popular restaurant at Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur! ;-)

Short Vacation in Cameron Highlands

Recently a group of seven retirees, including my beloved spouse, John and I travelled to Cameron Highlands in Pahang for a 3 nights/4 days short vacation.

An awesome holiday, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously with the right company and fantastic food to savour.

The first night we had a wonderful steamboat dinner in Brinchang. Hmm... rather remarkable that they were still using an old-fashioned steamboat appliance. We don't see this anymore in the lowlands where we reside.

Seven happy friends

Next morning we visited Lavender Garden at Tringkap. It was our visit and we were indeed mesmerized by the eye-catchy plants that abound there and the lovely landscaping! Drank Lavender Tea for the first time and then adjourned to Brinchang for a yummilicious lunch. Relaxed in the late afternoon with a mahjong session.

Dinner in the apartment was nasi lemak. Savoured the all-time favourite nasi lemak prepared by chef Mary... her unique Sarawak sambal is super tasty! Nasi lemak, KFC and wine to celebrate John Boi's birthday... treat by birthday boy and his beloved spouse, Mary! Much thanks, dear friends.
