When I said I would…

…I would, and I did!

A cousin of mine came to town and I took her to this place. I had their sizzling roast pork spare ribs with honey the other day and I liked it a  great deal and I said then that I would go back for their sizzling pork chop with creamy sauce (RM18.80)…

I found that it was also very nice though I wished they had given a bit more of the very tasty creamy sauce to eat the pork with…

…and though this is a little bit cheaper, the sizzling roast pork spare ribs with honey has two big slabs of meat whereas this one has only one. Personally, I prefer the former but this one is very nice too.

My cousin had the mee sua or long life noodles and we shared the kompia with three-layer pork as well as minced pork. She loved the vanilla mille crepe and even bought a few pieces to take home.

It certainly seems like the accepted practice these days that when anyone comes to town, he or she would bring a whole lot of goodies for me…and my cousin was no exception. She brought me these char siew pao

…from this bakery…

Shao Bao Bakery

They were pretty good, a whole lot better than the Seremban ones, I must say. I was never a fan of those, I’m afraid.

She also gave me the butterscotch bread that I enjoy a lot. She somehow managed to get somebody to pick that up at the LCCT in Sepang en route back to where they live and other than that, there were these imported snacks as well – the pretzels, tortillas, chips and all…

My goodness! They really cost a bomb! I would think twice or more than that before buying them to eat…and anyhow, I would not be eating those myself. I am very sure that my daughter would love those very much so I am saving all of them for her when I get to see her next – probably during the August holidays.

Then, my cousin also gave me these fridge magnets that she got from Dubai…

I particularly love the ‘diamond’-studded camel – it’s so pretty!

Thanks so much, dear cousin of mine – you shouldn’t have gone through all that trouble and that goes to the rest of you too if you’re planning to come to town. Just come – and let’s enjoy one another’s company and together, we will go jalan-jalan-cari-makan!

  1. just went crazy and cooked a bit pot of spaghetti for supper… aglio olio style… easy and nice and fast… nice lookin’ camel… cool as a camel or was it cucumber?

    Why? You’re hungry? You cooked or you got poor mamakucing to do it? LOL!!! It’s cool as a cucumber…not a camel. 😉

  2. Arthur, thank you for your company and spending time with me on my recent brief trip to Sibu. I’m glad that you like all the “goodies” that I brought along with me. It was nothing compared to the quality time we spent together. I must mention the eating places that you brought me to. It was out of this world. The otak otak is to die for. My trip’s complete after eating the Jelly Pisang dessert. Sure brought back a lot of sweet memories.

    Most welcome. My pleasure and certainly looking forward to your next trip here… 😉

  3. I thought we can request for more sauce.

    LOL…go visit people of course la have to bring “hand letters”.

    Not too sure, I didn’t ask. Ya…personally, I do feel that the pleasure is not just in the receiving but also in the giving. Like they always say, love is caring and sharing. 😉

  4. wow, sizzling pork chop with creamy sauce!! haha, but i would normally opt out for sizzling plate.. i love the vege they give, look so fresh!!

    Could have given a bit more of the veg too… Other types perhaps. 😉

  5. hahaha, those are “siew pao” and not “char siew pao”.. though they are just the same thing afterall but the name differentiates them, one is baked and one is steamed.. :p

    Ya…in Hokkien, we call them “sio pau” meaning baked buns…even though it literally means hot buns…and steamed buns are just whatever pao, depending on what’s inside. 😉

  6. Yum!!!…Yum!!!…I love them all. And those siew pao, Kuching has very nice ones too. Have a great weekend, Arthur.

    Ooooo…I love the Kai Joo Lane ones – best in the world, nowhere can compare.

    Btw, have you started clicking yet? We’re back in the game… https://share.sharp100years.com/?id=g1hP1oOq

    You, have a beautiful Sunday too!

    1. Ok, homework done, click. That’s a very nice photo. Remember, only 1 click every 24 hours, hehehe.

      Thanks. Yes, this time, must be very kwai-kwai liao… I hope everyone will stick to the rule. 😉

  7. WTH? They did not remove the price tags? hahaha~~
    I always remove tags on gifts. Not nice for ppl to see how much it costs!

    They’re those very sticky tags that do not come off easily…not without some of the paper coming off with it when you try to do so. But com e to think of it, I often do not remove the tags either and what I buy is usually some very cheap stuff – after all, as they say, it’s the thought that counts…and never look at a gift horse in its mouth. You always do? Hmmmm…..

  8. I love mee sua noodles for pancit 🙂
    So lucky to have generous friends 🙂

    Yes, I am indeed very lucky… 🙂

  9. wuah…noodle house again! super song! 🙂 i c that you go there very often. have you got any VIP pass there? 🙂

    Dream on… Even 10 sen in the bill, they would not round it up! Tsk! Tsk! 😦 I think I should stop going now…or at least not so frequently.

  10. I have a question – do you eat out everyday? 😛

    Nope. Only when there are visitors…or a special occasion to celebrate…and lunch, after church service on Sundays. 😉

  11. Noodle house, another new item in the menu too? Look good.

    Melissa going back for holiday again in Aug? Wow!

    Love that camel fridge magnet.

    No, she’s not coming back. Thinking of going over…but tickets so expensive… Will have to go very early and come back late – almost 3 weeks there – too long! 😦 Hey!!! Noodle House will introduce rum and raisin mille crepe soon… Looking forward to that! 😉 Ya, the magnet’s very pretty… At first I thought it was a brooch.

  12. I like roast pork spare ribs but not crazy about addition of honey.

    You don’t like honey? Hey!!! I thought that is a very common ingredient in western cuisine? I don’t mind…but not if the taste is too overpowering. This one is ok – can hardly tell there is honey.
