  1. Ah, a wordless post. ^_^

    The plate of kampua noodles is enough to evoke the reader’s thoughts and comments about the dish. Or is it a teaser post to something grandiose, STP? =)

    As they say, a picture could launch a thousand ships…

  2. LOL, what a creative way to blogging, maybe i should do something like this on my blog too πŸ˜›

    I guess you will say something like… my fried rice is better? πŸ˜›

    As Ronan Keating sings, “…you say it best when you say nothing at all…” πŸ˜‰

  3. Nevermind. Will have it soon enough. Next week friday go back liao!

    Right here waiting… Bet you will eat to your heart’s content and will even cart a whole lot of the instant ones home too! Btw, they have lardless ones now – for people who do not like/eat lard.

    1. Oh really. Yay! Good news for me and hubby. My luggage bag probably not big enough to put all the kampua 😦

      Just get a box from a grocery store – recycle after use.

  4. Good morning, Arthur….That plate of kampua looks delish but sometimes looks can be deceiving. You are making mee hunger for kolo mee liaw.

    My missus said it was good, I didn’t try – so mood spoilt after seeing my horrible pork leg rice that day. 😦

    1. I would want one! Like right now, for breakfast just before I head off to the company. Good morning Arthur!

      You never came over…and now the second one is due, guess you will not be coming over anytime soon. Maybe I should tapao some over for you the next time I go over to KL. Have a good day, happy working! πŸ˜‰

    2. Can see very good response for your wordless post.

      Would have been a lot more if not for those insisting on doing it on my link to this post on Facebook. Just wouldn’t, never read properly. Tsk! Tsk! 😦

  5. For the 1st time, you are wordless! I am not used to this. lol.

    Kampua! You want the best Kampua? Come to Sibu and let this celebrity blogger brings you to the best kampua in town.

    This plate of kampua does look yummy.

    I’m not either…but I never back out of a challenge. Hope this will get lots of comments and somebody will have to eat his words. Hehehehehe!!!!! It does look good – will have to go back there and try sometime.

  6. My favourite food of all time in Sibu. How I miss it here. But wouldn’t want to spend $9 for a plate of kampua.Luckily I brought the instant kampua from sibu!

    They say it is not really nice but of course, beggars can’t be choosers. All that I know over there gave the thumbs up to the instant kampua, more like the real thing than the kampua they can get over there, they said, and yes, it does not come cheap, not at all.

  7. For a second, I thought I see wrongly, or my pc fails to load the remaining words/description.. Then when I read the comments here, ahhhh, wordless post.. Interesting..Kampua mee, heh.. Or hakka me (in my version).. But I bet your Bovril noodles taste better..

    See my reply to azura’s comment below. Hakka mee is more like kolo mee, also nice…and so is my Bovril version. Let’s say they’re all different, all nice…and personally, I would place wanton mee a little bit below them, nice but not as nice. But then again, to each his own.

  8. It’s Wordless Wednesday! πŸ™‚

    [SK] challenged me to do this to see how many comments I would get. Looks like I’m getting a lot more than usual, still so early in the morning.

    1. muahahaha!! LOLROTF when i see this.. well, why so serious and always want to win?? errr, was that a challenge really?? well, probably just one light joke thought to be provoking challenge, and own thoughts put into one’s words?? our Kampua King got mata rabun ke?? read carefully what’s written in that suggestion maybe??

      i am just thinking.. maybe STP can one day do a post about Kampua noodles.. just post one and only one photo of the kampua noodles he had and write no words at all.. let’s see how many words he can collect from the comments for that post!! good suggestion huh?? i am rather excited with that.. :D”
      Ok lah…let’s call it a suggestion, not a challenge then…and I took it up. Certainly was a great suggestion, did not expect so many comments at all, response has been overwhelming – not just here but also on Facebook. Thank you, thank you for the brilliant idea!!!

      1. yalah, i will never dare to say you have no comments, you are so loved and sure have lots of fans around.. but am rather interested to see how people will flatter you with only a single kampua noodles photo, must put you into Guinness Record for “most comments by number and words for a wordless post”.. how about that?? and so, how many words in total have you counted?? πŸ˜€

        and credit to sk0617.blogspot.com for the suggestion!! angpow mari RM88.88~~

        You computer and statistics wizard, can work that out, not a problem at all. Me, if have to count anything more than two thumbs and eight fingers, already pening liao!!!! Old man mah!!! 😦

  9. If u ask me who live in kl, mee kuali white curry kah, sitiawan kampua kah.. nothing can beat sibu kampua. Enough said kah? If not I can say sibu kampua best in the world.

    Hear ye! Hear ye!!! Sokong 100%! Muahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€

  10. =.=”

    Now what’s that symbol supposed to mean? 17 comments already, 16 different people…and it’s not even 8.00 a.m. yet. Hehehehehehe!!!! πŸ˜‰

    1. oh really?? petty little things also wanna post on facebook ah?? hahaha, so so LUCKY that i am NOT his friend on facebook.. okay, you enjoy the flood my Anay, LMAO!! πŸ˜€

      I always put up a link on Facebook to my post for the day every day…so friends can see what they will see here and hop over if they want. All my blogger friends do that – I would see smallkucing’s, reanaclaire’s, isaactan’s and lots of the others.

      Usually, if you do not comment and TM certainly did not, you will not get a notification of each like and comment so you may see in once and no more. I wonder where the flood he’s talking about is…

    2. now now now.. isn’t this fun?? my prediction was correct!!

      this post is getting big hits, and even non-regulars also came to leave a comment!! awwww, our Kampua King is so loved by all his friends.. and of course many would be curious why no nenek kebayan stories and multiple photos of the same dish at different angle for this post?? hey, you must thank me for bringing traffic to your blog and also facebook dei~~ hehehehe!! angpow RM88.88 enough lah~~

      Can have more than one photo, right? I only put one…as I only took one of the kampua my missus had that day…but I’m sure there can be more than one? It is still wordless, isn’t it?

      The non-regulars would be my friends on Facebook, coming over to show their support. Yes, I have great friends there too…not only in my blog. I guess they do drop by and read every day but they’re my silent readers, never comment. As the saying goes: “Friends are like stars; you may not see them but they are always there.”

      See my other comment – lots of hits, no hits…all the same to me as I’m not blogging for money – just to keep mentally-active, as a record of things in my life day by day (though it’s mostly food) and keep in touch with old friends and make new ones. Want ang pao kah? Anytime… Come, come to Sibu, I give you lah…. Will round it up to RM100, no problem. After all, it’s only money. πŸ˜‰

      1. no lah, don’t want to go Sibu lah.. your next trip to KL please bring that RM100 angpow wokay?? RM100 can make you so happy, why not right?? kekekekeke~~ :p

        No problem at all…can even throw in RM100 worth of kampua as well. πŸ˜‰ Muahahahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€

  11. Interesting enough to notice that after years of enjoying this celebrated noodle dish…i find the taste, style of serving varies. Don’t know why. Or is it just me n my tastebud. Always enjoyed the white version prepared using fresh hand-made noodle. Yummy. How yummy it is really depends on which stall or cafe you go to. Its all in the tastebud. Well…i guess it is true that “you say it best when you say nothing at all”….

    I am not a fan of the “black” version either, nothing but the authentic original white version. Can’t agree with you more – even here in Sibu, many can’t agree as to which one the very best in town is. I’ve tried some that people say are the best and did not really like ’em…and those that I say are the best, some say they don’t like. But there is a general consensus that if it’s kampua, the best is right here (and maybe in the nearby Foochow towns as well)…and those elsewhere will pale in comparison. Like I always say, to each his own…

    Your first time commenting, Nancy? Welcome…and do drop by again.

  12. Ah…today is Wednesday and this must be your take on the Wordless Wednesday thing. I’ll have to say “I want to eat that!”.

    I don’t usually do this – [SK] put me to it. Come on over and you will be accorded our special kampua welcome, like all the rest who have dropped by… πŸ˜‰

  13. Can’t help but join the crowd..
    And I too thought that something wrong with my browser and refreshed it to make sure it’s not.. hahaha

    Yes, yes…it took everyone by surprise. Nice to have something different for a change sometime. As they say, variety is the spice of life. πŸ˜‰

  14. Can’t help but add my two-cents’ worth of comment. Nothing beats Sibu Kampua!!! Not even the kampua in nearby Foochow townsπŸ˜€

    No? I’ve never tried actually…except at Kanowit. Some nice ones there, or one at least – it has been around since my time teaching there in the late 70’s & early 80’s though I would say it used to be better when the original (old) folks were still around. I’ve had it in Kapit too – not really nice, ok…or maybe I did not know where to go and anyway, I would not say it is a Foochow town. Somehow, I’ve never tried the ones in Sarikei and Bintangor.

    Thanks for dropping by & commenting.

  15. Very interesting!

    How can “kampua queen” not make any comment on this. Me and my love, kampua! hahahhaha…very soon! Next week, RTM Cafe here i come!!!

    Hahahahahaha!!!! Let me know the time, text me – I can meet you there. πŸ˜‰

    Wowwww!!! It’s only 11 a.m. and already 31 comments. Look [SK], look!!! Thank you for your suggestion. The comments certainly came in fast and furious. Hehehehehehe!!!!!!

    1. wow, congratulations!! so this will be your biggest hit post?? come come come, angpow RM88.88 mari!! hahaha.. so do more post like this, or probably every post so that you can get thousands of comments and likes on FB and also millions of page hit!! yeah, STP the King of Bloggers!! Hail the King, muahahaha!! *wink wink* :p

      Unfortunately, lots of comments does not mean lots of hits. Just the same as usual, around 1K – I guess those who will come, including the silent readers, will come no matter what. The most so far was my post on my dear friend’s demise (not his funeral) – over 2K which was double the usual. Anyway, this is not a money-spinning blog so it doesn’t matter to me one bit. Just doing this for fun…and thanks to you, boy, am I having fun!!! Hehehehehehe!!!!! πŸ˜€

  16. What can I say.. the cheapest wholesome ‘fastfood’ (often being served faster than mcd and kfc without having to queue and being charged extra for the service and you get a bowl of free soup without having to ask for it)

    …and it tastes a whole lot nicer too…or to me, at least! πŸ˜‰

      1. I can have kampua everyday throughout a year but not kfc or mcd

        Looks like this is the case with a lot of people here but no, no. Don’t over-indulge. All that lard just can’t be good for anybody. Once in a while is fine.

  17. I don’t understand what’s the hype on kampua/ kolo mee. Saw on a FB page that some dude’s on the quest for the best kolo mee in Kuching! He’s visited north of 50 stalls. Bless his arteries! πŸ˜„

    Muahahahahaha!!!! Try visiting the coffee shop across the road from a primary school here and you will see all the plastic containers – all ready for the kampua mee to be delivered to the kids for their mid-morning break. Glad that the lard content isn’t as much as in the old days these days, too expensive – the parents don’t seem to realise that having it every day is a bit too much. Like I always say, moderation is the key.

  18. Ahh! I see….a challenge.
    The kampua noodle certainly looks springy and tasty!

    Yes, they look good – some look soggy or are not completely drained. One look will tell you they’re not going to be good.

  19. The most authentic kampua..only in Sibu

    True, true. As the song goes, “Ain’t nothing like the real thing!” Will have to come here for the best! Thanks for commenting, Patsy.

  20. Kampua from Sibu…
    Plain & simple, yet still tasty…

    Still having kampua frequently nowadays sir?

    Nope, haven’t had any for a while now. That day, my missus had this plate, not me. There can be no denying that the best kampua is right here in good ol’ Sibu town and the beauty is in its simplicity. Typical of Foochow cuisine – so simple, yet so nice.

  21. When I saw your status in FB, I was laughing already because I still remember [SK]’s suggestion for u to post a wordless kampua post. LOL. And you really did it !

    All for the fun of it. Makes life more interesting and exciting that way, don’t you think? Not the same ol’ routine – that can get very boring and will start to drag after sometime. This is really fun! πŸ˜€

  22. Kampua=Sibu. It’s sort of a tradition for me to have kampua for breakfast in kopitiam every morning

    Hi, Eric! For some, not for me. Will only have it once in a while. Moderation is the key, must not over-indulge, never mind how nice it may be.

  23. won’t mind this for breakfast tomorrow!

    Me too. All this talk about it sure makes me feel like having some. πŸ˜‰

  24. Ching ho siak.. (y) hmmm… yummylicious !

    Foochow for “ching ho ciak”. You can give it a try at Ciak Pa Boi… πŸ˜‰
