Makan-Makan trip

Early March was SIL's birthday. She suggested a 'makan-makan' tour in KL since she has some F & B vouchers which can only be used during the birthday month. We went up to KL after work on last Saturday evening. I took this opportunity to visit Mummy-J. Another friend, SL also went to Mummy-J's house since she was staying nearby. Mummy-J prepared dinner for us.

I brought XJ along but she was too shy to play with Mummy-J's daughter and SL's children. XJ choose to watch cartoon alone at the living room. While I was having my mini gathering with my friends, hubby and other family members went for Happy Hour at Setia Walk, Puchong.

The adults had beer while the children were running around playing catching (this is what YX told me). Around 10pm, SL fetched my girl and I to Setia Walk to meet up with hubby and the others who were already having their 2nd meal at Wong Kok Char Chang Teng. They went to claim a FOC giant milk tea specially for the Birthday Girl.

We spent a night at SIL's house before continuing our 'makan-makan' hunt the next day. After breakfast near to SIL's house, we went to Mid Valley. MIL & FIL who only came up to KL on that day itself, met us at Mid Valley for lunch. 

As it was still too early for lunch, we have something light at Kim Gary. At the mean time, SIL claimed her special birthday cake from Kim Gary. It was a watermelon punch.

We then have lunch at Dragon-i. They currently have the 'pun choy' promotions. It was very delicious as the chef used pork bones to make the soup as the based of the 'pun choy'. It was like eating steamboat. Unlike the other 'pun choy' we had before, the based was made of thick gravy. 

* All the above photos was taken from SIL's FB. I did not take any photos at Mummy-J's house and also did not take photo of the 'pun choy'.*

    1. The giant milk tea can get FOC with purchase of RM30 (if not mistaken). Must claimed 3 days before and 3 days after b'day. As for the Kim Gary, must join their member. Then can claim the FOC watermelon. Then got lots of vouchers. Can get FOC snacks every month depending on the vouchers.

  7. hmm, no photo of that poon choy?? i actually had that once in "Overseas Restaurant" but i didn't quite enjoy it lah, because when everything are mixed together, they taste the same already.. i would prefer all those good things to be eaten separately, so that i can appreciate their distinct flavors :)
