Welcome home…

I can’t remember how we got acquainted initially – whether she came and commented in my blog or whether it was through Facebook but I think it was the latter and since then, we have kept in touch via that social media. We did get to meet in person when I was in KL and she dropped by to say hello.

Anyway, she came back to her hometown for the holidays and last Saturday afternoon, she hopped over to Sibu for a while. I wished she had come earlier to spend the whole day here before driving back – that way, we could have gone around to eat more of the best in town. In the end, we only managed to come here…

…as she wanted to try all those lovely sweet desserts that I had featured before like the chocolate lava cake…

CLC

the crème brûlée and the mille crepes – she had the tiramisu and also the rum and raisin. I still enjoyed the crème brûlée a lot but I thought the cake was extremely sweet and I was beginning to get bored with the tiramisu. Everybody agreed that the rum and raisin was the best as it had the right balance in its taste and sweetness. She actually wanted to tapao some home but by the time we were about to leave, all were already sold out and she had to settle for something else.

She had the pork chop baked cheese rice that I had once

PCBCR

…and she said it was good. I made it a point to ask for a knife so she would not have to wrestle with the meat like I did when I had that same dish there.

The mum had the very nice sizzling roast honey pork spare ribs that I had before but unfortunately, the photo that I took of it turned out a bit blur. The slab of meat was soooooo huge, covering the whole plate and burying all the accompaniments underneath it. Probably I was so excited by the sheer sight of that BIG thing that my hands were shaking. LOL!!! The price has gone up though since that time when I had it last year by RM3.00 – it is RM24.90 now…but of course, the price of pork here has gone escalating sky high lately so much so that some people have resorted to substituting pork with chicken in the dishes that they are cooking and selling.

Her brother had the Foochow mee sua in chicken soup…

FMS in CS

…and I quite like the one here. Hey! We got a drumstick again! I thought everyone would get that but obviously, that is not always the case. Somebody was commenting on Facebook that I seem to get some special treatment here – I wonder how true that is, really! Well, his birthday was coming up so I would think that was a very appropriate choice – for longevity and prosperity.

Other than that, they also ordered the dry fried chicken dumplings and these irresistible deep fried kompia stuffed with pork belly slices…

Nom! Nom! Nom!

We did not have much time that day as they had to go visit her aunt so I only managed to get her to try the stuff here and other than that, we did stop by a bakery to get a cake for her brother’s birthday. Unfortunately, they had to settle for something else as my favourite was sold out – their Japanese baked cotton cheese cake but she did get a smaller oval one to enjoy. It wasn’t cheap – RM14.00 (I am quite positive it was only RM10 before…or less) but she said it was much cheaper than what she had to fork out in KL and she wanted to try the one here to see which was better.

It sure was nice seeing you again, my friend…and thank you so very much for the goodies that you brought back all the way to give to me

Goodies

Oh dear! I did not manage to get anything for you as I was not sure whether you would be coming and when exactly and by the time I got word from you that you were already here, I quickly rushed to meet you and buying a little something completely slipped my mind, so sorry for that…and that’s two times in row! Spank! Spank! I must make sure this does not happen again the next time around…
