Happy together…

Last night, I went to a birthday gathering and the food was from the Sweet Family Restaurant at the Sibu Bus Station commercial area (Jaya Li Hua). I have featured this food outlet twice before – here and here.

It being a birthday, we had fried mee sua (thread/string noodles)…

…but from my personal point of view, I think Ruby Restaurant does it better, and we also had butter fish fillet which was not bad…

…and the house specialty – Philippine pork leg which I had the last time I ate there…

…and here, you can see my friend, Jimmy, from Bintulu, carving the trotter into manageable pieces…

Jimmy and the trotter

Oops! You forgot to breathe in, Jimmy! LOL!!

We also had some fried baby kai lan, sea cucumber soup and fruits for dessert. I could not stay too long as I had to rush home just in case the flood waters rose again…and thankfully, nothing of the sort happened!

  1. Wow
    Happy new year, guess a little bit late.
    Do not worry, even though it rains every day, the volume of water is not so much.
    Not as heavy as those in December and the water level at Rejang River is way below the danger level

    Thank goodness for that! I saw in today’s papers that downriver, Sarikei is also flooded… A Happy New Year to you too!

  2. Passed by this restaurant a lot but I don’t think I’ve eaten there before. Would like to try sometimes.

    How’s flood situation in Sibu? Today the water level of the river has gone down, and the sun has come out, finally! 😀

    I’m sure you have. Used to be at the corner…the shops in Pedada near your house, right below the bridal salon! Quite sunny here, slight drizzle at times…water only in the roadside drains – my area, Nang Sang area – I dunno!

  3. You seem to get invited to a lot of dinners hor… hehe. Weather forecast for Kuching is rain/cloudy but it seems to be sunny outside. The toyols working overtime i think. hehehee.

    Chinese say got opportunities to eat is got “hock kee” or good luck!! Hehehehehe!!!! Weather forecast where got cun wan? Owes expect the opposite.

  4. KNB: My colleague told me our office area is guarded by toyol because of all the places facing the river, only our area was not affected by flood. Hmm…

    So no excuse for you not to go to work! LOL!!!

  5. Ooh i am interested only in the pork leg. Was it good?

    Very very nice…but I would prefer to skin to be crispier and crunchier…like crackle!

  6. Clare: U working in the same building as me? Which floor?
    As for the toyol… errr, if you believe in the rumours… every type of hantu also got here la.. toyol, pontianak, pocong.. u name it, we’ve got it. hahahaha

    Wadek! Wadek! Wadek! Went offline for a while…came back and terkejut!!! So many komens!! Paduhal…got people dating in my blog! Ini hantu apa leh? Hantu hiau kah? Bwakakakakaka!!!!

  7. Went there two Saturdays ago after reading your earlier posts – only to find out that it was the restaurant that we frequent! We only knew the Chinese name,全家福 (literally translated as Whole Family Blessings)!

    Hmm…. your blog is now my food guide!

    Keep posting good food.

    Like that, must go and eat there often…and whole family will be blessed! Hahahahaha!!!

  8. KNB: Not same building, the building next to yours. Same employer bah, neh all connected to the white-haired ‘ghost’, if you get what I mean. LOL!

    Ok…ok…next door neighbours! Go and meet one another for lunch and talk! Otherwise, everybody will know…. Hahahahahaha!!!

  9. Sweet Family Restaurant? Is that “Chuan Jia FU” in Chinese? lols…

    Must be! Whole family good luck…. You can see the Chinese name in Yan’s comment.

  11. Oh, ya hor! The block facing the rubbish area. Every evening the Trienekens truck will come and pollute the air of the whole place.

  12. ahh…. ok ok. Ur boss (i assume it is the boss lar… unless it is some super rich tea lady) must be the one driving that nice new Camry. heheh.

  13. You mean the golden new Camry? Nope. That’s my colleague’s. I think it belongs to her husband. Hahahaha!

    My boss (GM) drives the older Camry (black) with 2-digit plate number wan. I think it’s the company car.
