Have what I had…

Sometimes I would share a photograph on Facebook for a glimpse of what I had and as some sort of a preview of what I would be blogging about in the not-too-distant future. My girl, in her school on weekdays, would get to see it and sometimes, when she comes home for the weekend, she would want to have what I had (RM9.00)…

…so that was why we went back to the coffee shop…

Sing Long Cafe

…in my previous post again last weekend, just so she could have her yong tau foo. She loves yong tau foo and whenever we went over to KL or Penang, we would have that and unlike me, she does not mind the soup or the dry version. I prefer the former. This is the only place where we can find this here and thankfully, it is very nice. We opted for the RM9.00 set as it had everything inside, around 15 pieces altogether, so obviously, it would be cheaper than picking the items one by one even though the ones here actually cost a little less than in the peninsula.

I went back to the chicken rice stall and ordered the roast meat plus one stewed egg (RM5.00, inclusive of rice and soup)…

…and yes, I told the guy not to pour the thick and sweet black sauce all over everything…

…but I think I would want the sauce over the egg…

…to enhance the taste, just not the meat. By the way, that is pickled cucumber that you see by the side and yes, it is very nice and a cut above the fresh cucumber slices that you will get elsewhere here.

For the complimentary soup, it was not corn this time around but salted vegetable…

…instead and yes, it was very nice as well unlike the ones one would get elsewhere that I would just leave untouched. Believe you me, I finished this down to the very last drop!

My missus ordered the hot plate noodles (RM5.00)…

…from the chu-char (cook & fry) place at the back and it sure was sizzling and bubbling away…

…when it was served. I did not get to try it but my missus said it was very nice. My girl loved it and promptly declared that this would be a good stop for a bite to eat as they did seem to have some pretty nice stuff here.

When my girl was home for the weekend, she made these Sibu Foochow style sio bee (meat dumplings)…

…and they turned out really good…

– as good as what I had here and here or here, perhaps even a little nicer…plus of course, there is that special ingredient that one would not get anywhere else – love!

On my part, I didn’t cook anything special but I did fry some leftover rice again…

Belacan fried rice with prawns and petai

…this time with belacan and some fresh prawns as well and I finished off all that petai (stink beans) that had been sitting in the fridge for a while now.

Well, the weekend’s here again – I don’t know what we will be up to but whatever it is, with one’s loved ones around, it sure is going to be good. Happy weekend, everybody!!!
