Come in the morning…

My cousins, one from Kuching and one from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, came to town in the morning last Saturday for some family matters and left in the evening.

I picked one of them at the airport and we went round town buying the things he wanted to grab and bring home before stopping by here for what else…but the kampua noodles. I ordered the kampua mee pok (the flat version)…

…for a change and we also shared the piansip (meat dumplings) with dark soy sauce…

…and we waited there for the other cousin from Sabah to arrive. After he too had his kampua fix, they went off to do what they had to do in town and I went home.

Oh yes, before I forget, I must thank my cousin in Kuching for these lovely meat pastries from Kai Joo Lane in Kuching…

…that she went through the trouble of getting and sending to me through the one who came. They’re heaps nicer than the overrated Seremban ones even though the filling now, though it is still very good, is not as nice compared to when I was enjoying them way back in the 70’s. The pastry is still as great as ever – so crumbly and so fragrant and I can confidently say that I’ve yet to come across anyone who does it better.

Later, I took Melissa and the mum here

Sri Tanjung

…for a nasi kerabu lunch…

…as we went there the Saturday before at the end of the mid-year school break but they were closed. Yes, you can only get this on Saturdays, not on any other day in the week…and as always, it was very very nice. I wonder why I did not get a keropok (prawn/fish cracker) with mine though? Hmmmmmm!!!!!

When they were through with what they had to do, my cousins came to my house and at around 3, we went here for these…

Payung jelly pisang

– their jelly pisang which, without doubt, with the horrible weather that we’re experiencing at the moment,was absolutely perfect for a hot afternoon.

They had run out of their banana cake and their garlic bread with creamy chicken sauce so we could only have their rojak

…and their mushroom roll…

…and even though that did not look like much, Melissa and I were so full that we had to skip dinner before going for the sunset service in church that evening…after my cousins had taken their flight out of town.

Yes, we did go for dinner later that night after the service…but unfortunately, I forgot to bring along my camera so I would not be able to share the photographs of what we had here.

That certainly was a long and eventful day, last Saturday.
