Short trip to Ipoh

Staying at Taiping is consider good if we are traveling up North to Penang (just 50 minutes drive away) and also Ipoh (just 30 minutes drive away). Just few weeks ago we dropped by Penang, then few days later we dropped by Ipoh, but this time with sister and mother in law ;)

 Visited the famous Concubine lane, 二奶巷 (Don't ask me why this name, go Google it ^^)

Basically it's a small street with a few specialty shops (to attract outstation visitors and tourists)

So here's with Aden, and his newly bought Iron Man toy as well as his stinky pillow. This boy now brings his pillow almost everywhere he goes, he seems to be inseparable with it even though he is growing to be a big boy *sweat*



There's a few dessert shops here but we din't plan to dine there (saving our appetite for Ipoh's nga choy kai and custard eggs later)
And then we walked to 三奶巷 which is just nearby. This street is less interesting, nothing much to see, just the umbrellas on top as main attractio…

Movies I watched lately

Image source This was released in June, no time to do a review back then~ I am not really into this type of sci fi movie, Astro had been repeating the old Jurassic Park series few weeks ago and I find it so boring! xD Anyway, I was just out of confinement in June so I took the chance to join hubby to the cinema to catch this movie (hey mama needs a break too! Aden and Toby were under MIL's care while we went paktor) 
So, though I din't watch those previous installments, I have to say I like this movie, quite a lot ;) Must give thumbs up to all the CG and technologies la for making those creatures so real! And I particularly like the actor Chris Pratt ( as Owen in the movie) and also the actress Bryce Dallas Howard (as Claire), somehow I find they are perfect match, hehe!
Story line wise, not bad, I remember I got adrenalin rush in certain scenes xD Sure worth the money to watch this in the cinema, for those actions-packed moments!

Sunday spent at Penang

Hubby brought us to Penang for a day trip 2 weeks ago, main purpose is to visit the Transformer event at Esplanade.
Started our journey after brunch, little one was asleep, while his big brother was too excited and din't nap in the car~

Settled our lunch at My Voice cafe located at Bayan Lepas. Tried their big bowl ramen! We ordered 2 bowls of the ramen since there were 5 of us (friends joined us too).

Pork ramen
Genki kara ramen, we get to choose the level of spiciness, from level 1-20. Since there were kids, so we ordered level 3, which was a little bit spicy, next time must try higher level to challenge, haha xD

With my naughty boy Aden. Overall we prefer the Genki kara ramen ;)

Went window shopping at Queensbay mall before proceeding to Esplanade to see Transformer.
Bumblebee! Was a little disappointed cause we can't get near to the robots. And since it was Sunday, there were lots of people there blocking the view, but luckily still managed to get a great photo
