Call on me…

The other day, I had an sms from my good friend, Lim, saying that he and his family would drop by my house to catch up on stuff as they had been busy with work and all and we hardly get to see one another all year. It turned out that they had gone back to Kuching for a few days to visit their families there and they had just come back to Sibu.

He brought me these siew paos (baked buns) and curry puffs…

Sio pao & curry puffs

…that he said his mum got from a friend, home-baked.

The curry puffs tasted great…

…but I had a bone to pick though – the filling was all potatoes or if there was any meat, I could hardly feel it at all…

On the other hand, the siew paos were superb…

…so generous with the chunks of char siew (barbecued meat) inside. Thanks so much, Lim, much obliged…and so sweet of you to save some for me.

In the meantime, as everybody would know by now, we have been out and about…here, there and everywhere in the town and the other morning, we headed to this place for brunch. Melissa loves the beef noodles there and that day, she decided to try the beef soup…

Ah Sian beef soup

…with the kampua kosong (noodles without meat)…

…and she loved it (RM5.00 for the combo)! She was never a fan of kampua noodles and yet, while she was in the peninsula, she would go and eat the wanton noodles. She enjoyed what she wanted that morning and subsequently declared that the kampua was very nice, anytime better than wanton noodles. Ahhhhh!!!! Finally, a new convert! Hehehehehehe!!!!!

I, on the other hand, had the soup version – their beef noodles special (RM7.00)…

…with all the tendons and the tripe, other than a generous amount of the meat. It was nice, of course…and rest assured, we would be back there again time and time again…
