Help is on its way…

I met Philip again one morning for breakfast as he wanted me to help edit his mother, Angela Yong‘s 8th book. I willingly agreed to lend a hand as here is a son helping his dear mother and that was the least I could do in appreciation of such a show of filial piety. I just could not refuse…and besides, what are friends for?

He gave me a complimentary copy of his mother’s book – the 7th, I think…

ALL THE WAY PROSPER by Angela Yong

…which I had not seen in the bookstores. Truth be told, I have not dropped by any bookstore for quite a while now since my daughter is not around at this point in time.

Well, we met at the Happy Hours Cafe at Rejang Park here which I had posted on a long time ago…

I remember I had the claypot beef noodles from that stall in front and enjoyed it tremendously. This time, I wanted the same but what came was something completely different…

…with the pork intestines and gu tor (cow’s stomach) and everything else including one fried golden egg (RM4.50)…

Thankfully, it was really very nice and like what I did on my previous visit, I finished everything right to the very last drop.

Philip ordered the claypot prawn noodles (RM8.00)…

…with at least, three big freshwater prawns (udang galah) inside and while he was eating, he kept repeating, “This is very good! This is very good!”  He even took a photograph of it which just about showed how great he thought it was.

I’m glad I was able to show him around a couple of places here to enjoy the food here before he would have to go back to the US. Hopefully, when he comes home again next year, we’ll have the opportunity to go mam-mam again then…
