Ming’s Birthday Celebration

by melmonica on August 18th, 2010

For the past few months, I was deprived of ji mui time and fear of losing my femininity wtf. So I was over the moon when Ming invited me to Ipoh for dimsum and some shopping. Though Sitiawan & Ipoh are fairly near but I haven’t ate dimsum yet *shame on me

Was too happy to see Ming till forget to check out the restaurant name zzz. We went to the one opposite Fu Shan (I think) dimsum restaurant. ANYWAY, here’s what we ate:

Read from Ringo‘s blog quite some time ago, it is true that Ipoh dimsum is bite-sized compared to KL & Penang. And it is undeniably good. I was looking forward to some colourful dimsum (for photo op purposes) but these are what’s left. Maybe cos we arrived quite late for early morning dimsum *hrmph

Bubble milk tea anyone wtf

Corn flavour pau. Not my favourite as it was too sweet for my liking.

We were playing teh tarik to get a perfect shot.  Even the waitress in the restaurant stood to watch our antics *paiseh

Then, to Jusco!

Camwhore fail

Wrong focus so we change to mobile camwhoring zzz

Colour damn big difference kan? That’s why can’t rely on cellphone for a good shot (or maybe it’s just me)

Ming is wearing a bareback dress (very the Serena) and I’m wearing a Blair-esque dress. Picture colour looked dull cos… MNG changing room lighting is not bright enough. And cellphone camera sucks.

After hours of camwhoring/shopping/walking, we headed to Josephine for what we girls do best. Gossiping.

Josephine is small, cosy and warm cafe – make you feel at home instantly. And it was playing melodic jazz.

Love this shot of Ming. And I didn’t edit much at all.

It wouldn’t be right if I do not post up food pictures. So here’s what we had:

Passion Fruit Mojito RM15.00

Caramel Cappucino Blended RM13.00

Something Carbonara wtf RM25.00

When it comes to pasta or spaghetti, I always order Carbonara. And this by far beat the one in D’lish, Bangsar but lose to the one at Royal Bay Beach Club, Pangkor Laut Resort.  It is big enough for two small eaters (like us!) and the cheese smells oh-so-good.

Chocolate Brownies with Ice cream and Strawberry RM12.00

Tasted so-so nia. According to Ming, their Indulgence Cheese cake is a must try. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available that day sigh.

We went upstairs to check out the decor.

Wahahah so funny, I had to post this pic XP

This place is perfect if you would like to throw a small private birthday party. I reckon, the space can accomodate max 15 people. And it has candle everywhere. Very romantic (but Ming blew it jor zzz)
