#Balikampung 2013 Gong Xi Fa Cai

Balik kampung. Balik kampung... This year, I decided to leave KL at 6am. I'm decision was right. 

Woke up at 5:05am, first thing to do was check Twitter updates... Ah... Traffic already built up due to accident at Sg Buloh RnR.... 

Got ready and left house at 6:10am. Opened my Waze app, put my hometown Serdang, Kedah as destination, it's show only 3 hours 10 minutes journey. Zzz... 

Initially decided to go to highway via Rawang toll, but my sense told me to follow Waze which go via Sg Buloh Toll. 

Once entered passed the toll, traffic were slow. But soon, the traffic were become smooth. The journey started with slow traffic due to accidents, due to overflow of rest area, due to accidents again! As my journey continue up North, by Ladang Bikam rest area, the traffic were smooth until Tapah Rest area! 

It was 8:30am I'm entered Tapah Rest Area. Some 10mins rest, got down and pee, recharged, continue my journey...

Accident again at Gua Musang area. Zzz... Other than that, it's was smooth traffic until Ipoh... 

At Ipoh, I had 2 round of breakfasts. 1st tried the very much "hype" Ipoh Dim Sum ! My friend told me the prices were revised upward to bloody expensive level, which almost comparable to StarHill Dim Sum price! KNS !!! 4 dishes and tea cost us RM23. Zzz... Guess there won't be dim sum at Ipoh anymore for me.  

Dim Sum hype craving satisfied. Haha. Perhaps, next time shall go a dim sum place where locals having their dim sum there. The very much "hype" dim sum in Ipoh are no longer visited by local, but tourist but local Ipoh who come back visit Ipoh. This is very sad scenario. 

We proceed to second round, but the Kopitiam closed! Even the famous white coffee Sin Fok Loong closed! Next, friend suggested Mee Jawa! I'm ok with it. 

It's RM3.50 Mee Jawa ! No kidding! Yet it's really have the good taste of Mee Jawa !!! It's reminded me the last Mee Jawa taste I had back at Prima Setapak 1 of hawker centre sold by an Aunty. But she no longer selling there! Glad I can find similar taste ! 

Had awesome Mee Jawa then continue my journey back to Kedah.... 

Reached at hometown around 1pm plus. Just nice. 

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! 
Reunion dinner shall begin in 2 hours time. 


Gong Xi Fa Cai !
