You and I both…

Yes, you and I both have it – you have yours and I/we have mine/ours.

I have had har/hay mee (prawn noodles) in Penang at this cafe and the one opposite…and also the celebrated, much-acclaimed one here and I also had it before at a stall in Tabuan Jaya in Kuching that they said was run by some guy from Penang.

I didn’t know of any being sold here in Sibu until I spotted a stall at this coffee shop right below the hotel where my West Malaysian blogger-friends stayed when they were in town and the other morning, I decided to drop by and give it a try…

Sibu har mee 1

Was it good?

Well, it certainly was very nice – not too strong as far as the prawn smell was concerned. If it had been too overpowering, one may get put off by it even though the broth may be really sweet and tasty.

I loved the sambal that they gave…

Sibu har mee 2

…though I wished they had given more. That was really spicy and it did wonders to make the noodles taste a whole lot better.

However, I thought that with the price fixed at RM6.00 a bowl, I could feel the pinch even though the portion was quite big and there were a lot of prawns in it. I certainly would not be having it too regularly, you can bet on that…and to make sure that I got my money’s worth, I finished it to the last drop…

It seems that the stall also sells curry noodles and handmade noodles (pan  mien) but I’m afraid those will have to wait till another day…

And moving on from the post proper, I got this award from my blogger-friend, Opal, in the US of A…

Versatile blogger award

Thanks so much, Opal. I’m glad you enjoy reading what I write (even though it’s mostly about food…and those that are native to my part of the world at that) and thanks for dropping by regularly to post a comment or two. It’s so very nice and sweet of you really.

And having said that, I’m supposed to do the following:
Thank the person who gave you this award.
Include a link to their blog.
Next, select 15 bloggers that you follow regularly or have recently discovered.
Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile blogger-award.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Ok, I’ve done the 1st one and also the 2nd – I’ve had two links, in fact, one to the blog and the other to the specific post on the award. I think I’ll skip the 3rd and the 4th one…and go straight to the 5th.

Hmmmmm…7 things about myself that you may not know about me – here goes!
1 I had my tonsils removed when I was five years old.
2 I was caned by my teacher in Primary 2/Year 2 because I turned to talk to a friend at another table. Tsk! Tsk!
3 I was hopeless at Mathematics in school but thankfully, I managed to pass the subject in the exams.
4 I broke my wrist when I was 14, I think…and my arm when I was over 40.
5 Countries that I have visited include the UK, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hongkong, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. I have never been to the USA.
6 My missus & I spent our honeymoon in Manila and Baguio.
7 Upon leaving school, I wanted to be a flight steward (Of course, I was slim then!!!) or a radio announcer. None of my dreams came true… Sigh!!!

So, there you have it! Done! LOL!!!
