Almost there…

I went to get a haircut the other day. Lately, I do not go so regularly, having retired from government service…and I will usually let it grow until I cannot stand it anymore before I will go and get it trimmed. Besides, there isn’t much of it left…and considering how expensive one session of cut and wash is these days, I might as well wait till it is really long so as to get my money’s worth. LOL!!!

Well, my regular hair salon is located in the vicinity of the Sibu bus terminal and not too long ago, I saw a feature article in some Chinese newspaper on a place called “Mr Bean”…and since it was all Greek to me, I could only guess from the photographs that the man made his own noodles and the menu included pan mee…and something that looked like curry mee. I remember a place by that same name in the same area…but unfortunately, when I got there, I did not see anybody like that…nor any stall selling such stuff.

Venturing a few doors away, I stumbled upon this coffee shop…

Seng Huat coffee shop, Sibu

…and a fat guy selling roast meats…

Seng Huat - roast meats & stuff

I noticed that he had other things in claypots – some curry and this – braised pork leg…

Seng Huat - pork leg rice

I couldn’t resist giving it a try…and for all that, I only had to dish out RM4.00, inclusive of the rice.  Cheap!

As for the taste, it was pretty good…almost like what I used to love but not quite up to the standard of what I had at that coffee shop in Kanowit in the late 70’s and early 80’s and besides, I think my missus does it better. The gravy was too diluted to my liking but on the whole, it was all right…
