We want the same thing…

Everytime I sent my car to the car wash, the boss and the girl, probably his wife, would order a plate of noodles and share it between the two of them. I thought it smelled really good and at one time, I went and asked what noodles those were and the girl replied, “Mee Sedaap!” I never went to try as by the time I sent my car there, after 9.00 a.m., I would have had my breakfast already so I would not be hungry and would just sit and wait for them to get the job done.

Well, after returning from Bintulu that day, my car was very dirty especially after those two patches of road construction – going and coming back, so it was time to drop by there again.

I noticed that the coffee shop across the road

Wan Foo Coffee Shop

…had a new stall…

…so I walked over to check it out. It turned out to be a chap fan (mixed rice) place but I was early and they only had a few dishes ready…

It wasn’t time for lunch yet…

…but the food did look pretty good. I guess I would have to go back there another day if I wanted to give it a try…and since I was already at the coffee shop, I decided to give the aforementioned noodles from the kampua mee stall in front…

…a try.

This was what I got, just the noodles and nothing else (RM1.50)…

…and to me, it was all right – much nicer than when we cook our own at home probably because of the extra oil and fried shallots added and you would get a bowl of complimentary soup but I thought it was rather pricey considering that a packet of the noodles would cost only 60-70 sen but it sure was cheaper than a plate of kampua kosong (without meat) which I think, if I’m not mistaken, is RM2.00 a plate now. Between the two, I think I would go for the kampua noodles – in my opinion, they’re nicer.

I went into the shop by the side so I did not see the banner in front…

…and if anyone is interested in having a go at the chap fan there…or the mee sedaap, it is to the right of the Medan Mall, Wong King Huo Road. The car wash is to the back/other end of the block of shops on the extreme right and this coffee shop is right opposite.

Round the corner, behind the mall and the shops opposite is this new hotel…

The new Medan Hotal

People used to tell me that it was going to be that hotel affiliated to that cheap airline but obviously, those rumours were totally unfounded. It has since opened its doors and commenced business already and I hear that the rooms are reasonably priced at RM98.00 only onwards. I wonder what will happen to the old one by that same name at the Sibu bus terminal (which is cheaper, at only RM65 for a standard single, Queen).
