God (or rather, everyone) knows that I needed a break. Oh wait, so does everyone else that’s in the city right?
The traffic jam, the unpredictable weather (why does it have to rain every single day at 5pm??? As if after-work traffic ain’t bad enough as it is!), the datelines..it gets to us doesn’t it?
The city can be exciting, but at the same it wears you out as well.
For my sanity, I travel out of KL at least once a month. Last month I was in Sg for Wine for Asia, and earlier this month I was transported back to the countryside as I traipsed through the sleepy town of Pekan and Sg Lembing in Kuantan.
Short respites like this helps in its little way to sooth my consistent high strung emotions.
My latest city-runway adventure was in this charming yet romantic Tudor colonial bungalow in Ipoh.
Indulgence Restaurant and Living is no new kid on the block.
Julie Song (now, one can’t mention “Indulgence” in the same breath and miss out Julie! ) started out with a simple cakes & coffee joint in May 1996 in Canning Gardens, which back then was probably one of the few commercial areas in Ipoh town. Julie obviously got a winning formula in place; as her cosy cafe expanded to 2 shoplots shortly after and then in Nov 2005 Indulgence Restaurant was born, serving Modern European cuisine to the simple, laid back citizens of sleepy Ipoh.
