Dinner with Lim Yong Been

I realise from the blog archive that it's been five months since my post on our memorable meet-up with Yong Been in Ipoh in July and our 'Korean' is back in town again! He seems to like the relaxed, laid-back Ipoh life after having lived in big cities in the States, Korea and Hong Kong. He is back with wife Karen, to chill out and play golf at the Meru Resort and and is looking to acquire a property. And why not, with the dirt-cheap prices of properties here which, coupled with the lower cost of living, amongst others, make this an ideal place for retirement.

A few of us met up for dinner at the Mun Choong Restaurant behind Lido. It was great to have a teacher join us this time too - Mr Chin Yoong Kim. Good food, good drink (wine with compliments of Mr Chin), warm camaraderie make an enjoyable evening.
