Fast…

By the time I got home from the airport that night when I flew back from Penang, it was already past  11.00 p.m. so I just took my bath and went straight to bed, leaving the unpacking, the laundry and what not till the next morning.

The next day, after finishing all the chores, I went  out…and somehow or other, I felt a craving for kampua noodles. Every time I came home from travelling in the past, unlike many people that I know, I never had any urge to rush to a nearby coffee shop for that so-called kampua fix but this time around, it somehow seemed to be the exception to the rule.

I went to Fast Cafe, a coffee shop in the Sungai Antu area here in Sibu located right next to Courts Mammoth. I am quite positive that it was called Happy Garden many years ago when I used to drop by for brunch every time I had some business on at the Sibu Education Department’s Examination Office located not very far from there. I don’t think the coffee shop has changed hands as I still saw the young and handsome man with a nice muscular built, probably the proprietor, there…or at least that was how he looked then but after all these years, he certainly did not look young nor handsome nor muscular anymore. LOL!!!

I guess the new name would be more aptly associated with speed, meaning that you will be served in a jiffy. I certainly would not want to eat at any place where I would have to fast and end up starving to death. LOL!!! Thankfully, it was indeed the former and my order came pretty fast…

I had the kampua noodles, plain…

…without those few thin slices of meat, that is and I requested for the piansip, otherwise known as kiaw in Kuching or wantan elsewhere, served in the soup…

All in all, it was all right – not the best that I’ve had but should you happen to be in the vicinity and you have no intention of driving all the way to the other places in town, this should be good enough to appease your hunger.
