BENTONG Market Hunt

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

The next morning we woke up quite early and left the hotel a quarter past 7 in the morning. Our destination was the morning market along Jalan Chui Yin, but before that we decided to try out the famous Hooi Kee Wan Ton Noodles at Yuan Kie Kopitiam nearby.

Breakfast out of the way we took our time browsing the various items for sale at the morning market. We ended up with several bagful of items that included:

  • 1 kilogram of fresh Ginger
  • 1 bag of Tau Pok (Tofu Puffs?)
  • 1 bottle of Tauchu Paste
  • 1 bottle of Ginger Wine
  • 1 string of Petai
  • 1 bunch of Serai (Lemongrass)
  • Assortment of Gao Teng Kueh (Steamed Kuih Lapis - Soft Rice Flour Pudding)

With that ends our sojourn in Bentong. Till we meet again!

BENTONG Walkabout

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

We have not been to Bentong since the pandemic and first lockdown way back in March 2020, so we felt that a trip to visit my parents in Bentong was overdue. They live by themselves and (apart from running necessary errands) have been keeping very much to themselves for almost 2 years. Thankfully they also live within a close-knit network of neighbours who look after each other, and keep in constant contact with each other.

Often regarded as reclusive, it is this very trait that served them well during the pandemic. Now that everyone has been vaccinated my parents allowed us to their home.

We left Kuala Lumpur at about 9:30am and within the hour reached Bentong. We spent the entire morning catching up and had then had lunch. After a lazy afternoon we bade farewell to my parents and drove to Bentong town to check into Hotel Kristal.

After settling in and taking a short nap we walked out and across Jalan Ah Peng heading northwest past TF Value-Mart until we got to Jalan Masjid. Here we headed northeast until we got to the main street of Jalan Loke Yew and turned left.

We headed northwest along Jalan Loke Yew past Bentong Gallery all the way to the intersection of Jalan Padang where we turned left and made the loop back onto Jalan Ah Peng where we headed southeast. We then walked across Jalan Ah Peng and entered Jalan Wayang before heading southeast along Jalan Chui Yin past the Bentong Chinese Town Hall.

At Bentong Walk we came across several stalls selling cakes and pastries and bought our fair share. We then continued southeast along Jalan Chui Yin and arrived back at the hotel. We stored our goodies in our room and went to Aik Kee for dinner.

After dinner we wanted to continue our walkabout but a drizzle that soon turned into a downpour forced us back to the hotel.

An hour and a half later looking to have dessert we continued our walkabout heading northwest along Jalan Chui Yin but found The Hall Coffee Bar fully occupied. We then tried First Cup along Jalan Wayang only to find it closed. We then walked across Jalan Ah Peng and walked southeast until found a place that served as it turned out, only desserts.

It is very apparent that Bentong Coffee House has been ravaged by the pandemic and being an iconic landmark in Bentong town we can only pray that it survives and is able to revive itself.

After having Cendol and Air Batu Campur (ABC) we walked across Jalan Ah Peng and headed southeast until we turned right onto Jalan Chan Siang Sun and back to the hotel. We hope to go to sleep early since we will be on a market hunt tomorrow!

AIK KEE Bentong

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

Each time we come to Bentong we would be remiss if we did not have dinner at Aik Kee. Just a 2-minute walk away from Hotel Kristal, Aik Kee sits on the left in a row of eateries. We were glad to see that Aik See survived the pandemic and was ready to welcome dine ins again.

As always, we ordered the:
• Steamed River Catfish with Soy Sauce
• Kung Pao (Dried Chilli) Squid in a Yam Basket
• Kung Pao (Dried Chilli) Pork
• Large Omelette

The entire meal came to RM114.50 (approximately USD28; EUR24) which was quite reasonable since we had almost a kilogram of catfish. If you are in Bentong and would like to try some local seafood and kungpao styled cuisine we would highly recommend Aik Kee to you.

HOTEL KRISTAL Bentong

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

Back in the days when I worked for a bank in Kuala Terengganu I used to perform relief duties at branches in the East Coast area, and Bentong was one of the branches I'd frequently be posted to.

We've therefore been coming to this hotel for close to 20 years now, although this is the first time since the pandemic. In that time the hotel underwent a major facelift and has managed to transformed itself into a chic and contemporary hotel, and if it were our default hotel before it will be even more so now!

We'd like to list the top 3 things we love about this hotel:
1. Location
2. Location
3. Location! 

And oh, the hotel now feels refreshed and reinvented while still retaining its old charms plus the added bonus of spaciousness rooms. In other words, very highly recommended. A shout out to Ms Tong for handling our booking and making sure our small little needs were met :D

PETALING STREET Walkabout

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

This is our longest video yet... Buoyed by our acquisition of the DJI Pocket 2, we woke up early this Sunday morning and made plans to go for a walkabout. It has been a while since we last visited Petaling Street and thought today was a good day as any to walk there.

Leaving our condominium we made our way to Lebuh Ampang and walked past our favourite Banana Leaf Rice restaurant, Restoran Kader. We then walked across Jalan Tun Perak before arriving at Medan Pasar.

Taking a minute to admire the Old Market Square Clock Tower we continued along in a southern direction until we reached Central Market, and found Kasturi Walk cordoned off for repair works.

We then walked across Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock and took a right into Jalan Hang Lekir before finally arriving at Petaling Street. The streets were busy, and welcome sign of things finally get back to normal.
My wife then suggested we try visiting an attraction nearby, so we headed south along Petaling Street then turned left and headed west along Jalan Sultan until we reached the intersection of Jalan Tun H S Lee. 

We then turned right and headed east along Lorong Panggung before arriving at Kwai Chai Hong (鬼仔巷) which literally means Ghost Alley. The place was crowded and with most not observing social distancing we beat a hasty retreat.

We exited the alley, turned left and headed east along Jalan Balai Polis before getting to Jalan Panggong where there are a host of cafes and eateries. In quite in the mood for western cuisine we continued east along Jalan Sultan before turning right and north along Jalan Tun H S Lee past the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple before arriving at our lunchtime spot.

Restoran Kiew Yee Baru has been our firm favourite and we arrived just in time too, as it soon started to rain. Apart from lunch we took away our favourite Curry Chicken for dinner later. After lunch and with the rain not receding, we sought shelter at a café simply called "etc.". Half an hour later the rain finally subsided and we walked back to Petaling Street, before heading east along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock before walking across to Kotaraya Complex.

It has been many years since we were last at Kotaraya Complex, and it has transformed into a mini-Manila. We continued walking past this Complex before turning right heading east along Petaling Street until we reached the Old Market Square Clock Tower again. 

From here we continued north and reached Leboh Ampang, where we walked across Jalan Tun Perak and turned left before entering Jalan Melayu and continuing north. We turned right at Jalan Masjid India and headed to our favourite hole-in-the-wall ‘Mamak’ stall called Mansion Tea Stall but affectionately known as as ‘Abang Abu’ (brother Abu) to us.

We ordered a dozen Roti Canai, to be had later with the Curry Chicken we took away from Restoran Kiew Yee Baru. This was when the DJI Pocket 2’s battery died, and this is where we will end our blog.

TIMES SQUARE Revisit: DJI Pocket 2!

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

This is it! We made up our minds to invest in the DJI Pocket 2, which we hope to replace the hefty set-up that we have right now. The Lumix GX85 mounted atop the Zhiyun Crane M2 sitting on the Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod has product some awesome footage but is not practical especially when on holidays. 

The recent trip to Ipoh has amplified our need to scale down our equipment so that we can have a more enjoyable holiday not hampered by cumbersome gear.

We made several enquiries with several camera shops and Altech Camera came up trumps. They ultimately offered a "super combo", which basically is the DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo plus a host of other innumerable accessories including third party power bank, chest trap, car windscreen holder and a host of other goodies too plentiful to list here. All for an additional RM200 on top of the price of the Creator Combo package.

With the acquisition of the DJI Pocket 2 we hope to continue producing content without the burden of lugging around heavy and cumbersome gear. If all goes well (weather permitting) we hope to make a trip soon to the East Coast of Malaysia where we hail from and showcase the many attractions and cuisine. Please stay tuned!

We then headed down to the lower ground floor and had lunch at Taste of Asia Food Court. It was here that I realised the Pocket 2 did not have a memory card inserted and therefore we could not immediately begin testing it.

After lunch we headed back up to Altech Camera to see if we could purchase the cheapest memory card, and Eric was more than happy to oblige.

We were soon testing our little pocket dynamite and were blown away at how smooth the footages were. We walked around Berjaya Times Square and soon found ourselves taking away fried chicken from 4Fingers, a firm favourite of our son

We then hailed a Grab car home, and marvelled at the steady shots taken from within a moving vehicle, something that we struggled constantly with our old setup.

Here's to better content in the future!

IPOH Trip Day 4

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur!

It's Day 4, the very last day of our Ipoh trip. We spent the whole morning packing since we planned to check out by 10am and be back in Kuala Lumpur by lunchtime.

Checking out promptly at 10am, we drove out of Ipoh town but not before checking out a pottery shop. Thowlee did not have the pot in mind, and we drove on and onto the Southbound North South Expressway.

A couple of hours later we decided to have lunch at the Overhead Bridge Restaurant (Restoran Jejantas) in Sungai Buloh. We settled on a stall that sold Nasi Tomato, while our son opted for A&W.

We got home at 1pm, hit the showers and began unpacking. I then took Alfie to a car wash in Kampung Baru. This is the last instalment in our series of Ipoh videos, but do stay tuned because we will be presenting to you our hometown in the East Coast of Malaysia next month.

IPOH Trip Day 3

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

Day 3 of our Ipoh trip saw us waking up pretty early in the morning again, this time in search of Ipoh's finest murals. Our morning stroll started from our Airbnb as we headed west along Jalan Russell taking in the sights, then north along Jalan Raja Musa Aziz for a little while before turning west again along Jalan Masjid until we reached the general vicinity of Mural Art's Lane. 

Here we spent quite some time admiring the various wall art while marvelling at the artists' patience and dexterity.

After half an hour or so we headed west along Sultan Iskandar until we reached Ipoh River Front where we crossed to Jalan Bijeh Timah and entered the first of the three famous lanes, Second Concubine Lane — Market Lane (三奶巷). 

Further north along Jalan Bijeh Timah we encountered the famous of the 3 lanes, Concubine Lane (Lorong Panglima 二奶巷) lined with souvenir shops, fashion outlets, cafes and dessert houses that were mostly closed (permanently or otherwise, we have no idea). 

We finally entered the least famous of the lanes, Wife Lane (Lorong Hale 大奶巷) which in our minds held the least appeal, or rather, was not given much attention by the local council.

We worked up a mighty appetite after all that gallivanting and went looking for some authentic local breakfast before deciding on Restoran Nam Chau, the least busy of all the eateries here. We sampled the Kaya with Butter Toast, and the Tan Chi (Bread & Egg sandwich). A tall glass of iced white coffee was the customary accompaniment to this merry breakfast feast.

After breakfast we walked north along Jalan Bandar Timah, then left along Jalan Tun Sambanthan until we reached Padang Ipoh and disturbed a flock of pigeons.

Realising that it was already mid-morning, and the sun would be blazing down on us, we quickly made a hasty retreat back to our Airbnb. After a refreshing shower I began editing the previous day's videos in earnest. Tuckered out by the morning exertions we decided to order in from Grabfood and tried the famous Nasi Ganja Kedai Kopi Yong Suan. Due to the large dine in crowd on the weekends, we were only able to book a delivery after 2pm (which we were fine with).

It rained heavily in the evening, and with no plans made we found ourselves walking to Gerbang Malam again. This time we were determined to give Lou Wong a try. As luck would have it, we found an empty table but was told that we were not allowed to sit there since it was meant for 4 persons. We were asked to sit indoors and knowing that there would be inadequate ventilation we left Lou Wong. Guess what? Their loss is Ong Kee's gain!

After dinner we visited Lam Fong Biscuit Shop 南方饼家 and managed to acquire 2 bags full of confectionary delights. We then walked home, and I began working on the videos shot today.

We will be headed home tomorrow :(

IPOH Trip Day 2

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

Day 2 of our Ipoh trip and we were up and about pretty early in the morning in search of some white coffee. We headed to the Little India district of Ipoh, hoping to have breakfast at Kedai Kopi Sin Yoon Loong and have us some 'famous' Ipoh White Coffee. Alas they were not ready to accept dine ins.

Across the street was Nam Heong White Coffee who were also not ready to accept dine ins. These series of events have led us to suspect the rate of vaccination among adults in Ipoh is rather low.

No matter, a very pleasant surprise lay in store for us when we finally were able to dine in at Restoran Makanan Yu Dan Mui 鱼旦妹茶室. Here we were served by a boy and girl team (siblings perhaps?) that impressed us mightily with their good service and friendly demeanour.

Breakfast out of the way, we then went to Mydin Mall in Manjoi to get some household provisions before heading over to Cyclone Car Wash since Alfie (the car) was rather dusty.

We then thought we would take a short trip to Taiping to visit its tranquil lake but was deterred by the voluminous traffic headed north. We then swung back to Ipoh town where we had lunch at a delightful local pizzeria called Miker Pizza. It was an excellent experience and a must-try for all pizza lovers. So good was their pizza that we ordered a large one to go as well!

We went back to our Airbnb and took an afternoon nap. As night-time approached, we decided to take a walk to the Gerbang Malam Ipoh, where we came upon Ipoh Tuck Kee Restaurant that served excellent noodles. Bellies filled, we strolled back to our Airbnb, and I began editing videos of the past few days. 

We will be up early tomorrow morning since we plan to take a look at a diverse collection of murals, so please stay tuned!

Airbnb @ THE MAJESTIC Condo Ipoh

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

After visiting Kellie's Castle we continued our drive to Ipoh. We arrived an hour later, and had a Dim Sum lunch at Foh San Restaurant.

We then drove a short distance to The Majestic Tower located along Jalan Dato Tahwil Azar just a stone's throw away from the famous Nasi Ganja at Jalan Yang Kalsom.

We'd like to list the top 3 things we love about this Airbnb:
1. Location

KELLIE's Castle

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur!

We've heard so much about this castle, so we penciled in a stop on our way to Ipoh.

Half an hour after departing from the Northbound R&R Tapah we exited the North South Expressway at Gopeng. We were eager to see the haunted castle that is Kellie's. With an entrance fee of RM2 and parking fee of RM2 per vehicle we thought it very reasonably priced, until we were told that we would have to incur a surcharge of RM50 if we used a 'DSLR" (what they called our little Lumix). Any and all footage shot with mobile phones will not incur any charge.

A lose-lose situation, we thought. Oh well, we move on along. Don't look back in anger... we heard her say? We intend to come back some day and do justice to Kellie's Castle, but only when common sense has prevailed and the RM50 surcharge is abolished.

We apologise profusely for the mostly shaky footage of Kellie's Castle since it was shot entirely with an iPhone X ☹

Making Sense of the National Recovery Plan (NRP)

Living under a cloud of confusion for a while, we finally made sense of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) and its various phases in relation to how it directed affected Kuala Lumpur, where we live.




Kuala Lumpur entered Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) on 16 August 2021. Among other things this meant that:

  • Eateries were ALLOWED to offer dine-in services, and only accept customers who are fully-vaccinated, and asymptomatic.
  • Interstate and inter-district travel (based on district borders determined by state governments) is still FORBIDDEN
  • Most shops and stores were ALLOWED to operate from 8 AM until 8 PM

It was then announced that effective 10 September 2021 Kuala Lumpur would enter Phase 2 of the NRP. While most restrictions were still in place this essentially meant that inter-district travel (based on district borders determined by state governments) is now ALLOWED. It was this announcement that spurred us to take a trip to Bagan Lalang.

Kuala Lumpur then entered Phase 3 of the NRP on 1 October 2021, and two weeks later finally entered the final phase i.e. Phase 4 of the NRP on 17 October 2021.

In the midst of all this it was announced by the Prime Minister that interstate travel would be allowed from 11 October onwards. With this announcements we soon made plans to visit several places, including our upcoming trips to Ipoh and Bentong.

It is worth noting here that the ability to dine-in, travel across state lines and do basically anything and everything outside the home is a privilege given to those who have been fully vaccinated only.

With this we hope that our blog, and vlog can flourish again.
