Yeye's Birthday

4th day of our trip, headed over to "Dai Shu Geok" 大树脚, for their famous laksa and yong tau fu!

1427 Jalan Prince Kampung Pasir Pinji Baru, 31650 Ipoh, Perak

They sell all the popular local delights there like Ipoh style chee cheong fun and popiah.

 "Does this count as a yummy face?"

 Daddy's Clovine's playmate. Isn't it obvious? :)

This is how they sell fireworks and crackers! Hmm not cheap to buy from them also.

What's with their faces? Lol.
Cannot stand 2 Sagittarius together. Too much playfulness alrdy!

Here comes the mmmm laksa!

Got Hungry? If yes, that's my motive! Muahaha.

My cutiepie with her cheeks getting chubbier!

Little piggy with dirty mouth says muackkks!!

Then Ipoh parade for my fav kaya balls! 

 Wanted to do my nails for the cny too but everywhere was fully booked :(

Headed back in the evening for Hubby's Yeye's birthday dinner!

Lao yu sheng is a Cantonese kind of thing. So we lao-ed like at least 3 times with the same ppl for cny. Lol

 That's Hubby's mum and yeye.

 I actually don't know meat is this so since it taste yummy I just pretended it was beef. 
Lol might be deer?

 I love this fish! I can't stop eating it and the sauce is just delish together!

Pork ribs another of my favourite!

 Shou mian.

 Prawns which is surprisingly not popular with our table. No taste one ;(

Fried sotong which Clovine can't stop eating!

 Nobody likes vege right? Say NO!

 And this Clovine can't stop running from tables to tables with her new bird balloon that only costs RM5!
I saw Singapore selling this kind of balloons in Chinatown and it costs SGD5-7 O.o

Granny's house after dinner.
 Hubby's photography... speechless. Take Clovine until so ugly!
Looks cute when you're young but when you're a grown up, unglam photos are just ewwww.

 What's with the pouty lips baby?

 Motor with a spoilt battery so poor hubby has to push Clovine all over the house.
Clovine gets angry when he stops pushing her! AHAHAHA!


 Cake cutting time!

Clovine kept eyeing on the cake! She loves those covered in chocolate and if its covered in cream, she wouldn't even eat it. Lol.
Poor Clovine has been celebrating a few birthdays in school and she has to wait till dec for her turn. 
Quite sad leh when ppl get ic or driving license next time, she still waiting.
What I always laugh at ppl who has their birthday at the end of the year. Lol...

 Happy birthday Yeye!
May you stay healthy and wishing you longevity ^^

 Clovine singing and clapping along to the birthday song!

 Eyes never leave the cake one leh. 

See her gentle yet um chio face because she finally got her cake! LOL.

 Just find a seat, squeeze in and enjoy the cake!
Who cares whose next to you or it's squeezy, as long as there's food/cake, anythings fine!

Penang 6-7 'Feb (Day 2)

Stayed in Guest inn Muntri, inn for a night at Penang!

Our room for the night with a queen sized bed and toilet for around RM100 a night!
Its a small inn with smaller rooms without build in toilet for like RM80 a night but the common toilets are not far just a little inconvenient for those with kids/babies.

Woke up a little too early as I'm not used to sleeping in hotels and stuffs. So I went out to use wifi!

Me with specs without lenses. Pardon my small pupils :(
Idk why my pupils became smaller after I started on contact lenses since Pri 6.
Does it affect? Can make it return to original size anot ah? Lol.

 Love taking pictures using Hubby's Iphone 5. The lighting is awesome one unlike  Iphone 4's dark, black and grainy front camera!

Getting bored waiting for Hubby to prepare so I took a stupid photo.

Awwwwwww~ The reason why I'm neglected and jealous all the time!
Too sweet and loving liao! Buey tahan!

Comfy lobby with stronger free wifi, pool table and water cooler!

Overall the place is clean and good for short trips. Very popular place with backpackers who are mostly Caucasians.

Old kind of carpark paying machine which can't be found in singapore anymore.
Quite cool right?

Settled down at a nearby coffee shop for lunch.

Wu xiang!

Olden days kind of coffee shops! 
I don't why but this kind of old kind of life makes me feel more relax and at ease then life in singapore which is full of ppl and buildings. 
And surprisingly I prefer this kind of kampong lifestyle where everything is simple.

Not something fanciful but its just has the x factor to make you crave for more!

After lunch was some fun! Headed over to Penang Hill!

Our tram tickets! It was triple the price of a malaysian for my ticket as I'm a foreigner who did not bring her passport also! Cost RM30 for a two way ticket when M'sians only need to pay RM8!

Boarding the tram to head up to the peak!

Group picture for the childhood friends!
Envy how their friendship can still be so strong and close even though they rarely meet up after secondary!
Lots of stuffs to talk about one.

It's very very steep up the hill! Steeper than The peak in Hongkong but not as high as it is.
And the tram was alot faster than the one in Hongkong and it kinda freaked hubby even more!
Lol. We kept making fun of him cos it seems like he's the only one in their clique thats afraid of height since young and like going on trips with them that involves height. 

It was really hazy at the top.

Hubby was so relieved his stepping on solid hard ground. LOL
That's why I joked that he's a "Jiao ta shi di" de person.

Chung sing the white and Raymond the black!
Chungsing super fair please even fairer than me sia! ENVY!

Is someone missing?
Nope! Clovine has been sleeping after we board the tram and only woke up when we went down.
One good thing is Hubby can hugged her tightly on the tram to relieve his fear. 

Family photo in two angles which Chungsing says its nicer. Lol.

Which I can't decide which angle is nicer so I posted both. 

There's an owl museum which we gave a missed as it seems like its all art work of owls only instead of real living owls even though it only cost RM10 for a ticket.

Lots of swallows flying around!

Then it started drizzling a little so we sat down for a little break.

And how can we missed out on a group photo?

Cute birds having their bath and they are all puffed up!!

Was on our way down from the peak to the tram and we saw this creepy crawly ;/
I don't what it's called but they call it the "Huo che cong" meaning train worm.

A close up shot by Chungsing as he was laughing at how far I was standing to take its photo!
It's amazing to see such animals in the nature because you don't see it in SG!
That's why those kampong kia like to laugh at me for being so sampat!

While on the way down, there's a short train tunnel!

Hubby was fussing about sitting in the front of the tram as it shows the tracks below so we had no choice but to sit facing the back of the tracks. What a waste! 

Very stern face. 

It started raining heavily while we're on our way down so we had to take shelter first before going back to the car.

Little princess is awake!

After the rain stopped, we visited the famous Kek Lok Si temple which is just nearby!
Very huge temple which is still expanding!

Wishing lanterns all over the temple.

Clovine favourite is looking at fishies in the water.

"Xuanxuan zhe ge jiao yu. Jiang yuuuuu~"

"Yu yao yao ni oh."
This is how Daddy always talks to her little sweetie. VERY SWEETLY.

HAHAHA like a photoshoot where the photographer asks you to point here and there.

After Kek Lok Si, we went to takeaway Mcdonald's which was so crowded due to the Lunch time offer! You see, you'll still crave for Macdonald's even when you're in another country! 
That's how successful they are.
