Life goes on…

Things have pretty much gone back to the old routine now except that I do feel that a part is missing, no longer there. We still have prayers and rosary at the house – the last time will be tonight, 7 days after my dad’s passing.

Last Saturday evening, we went for the sunset service in church here, something we would usually do every week before sending my girl back to her school in the jungle the following day, Sunday and after that, my girl was delighted when I suggested dropping by here for a very late dinner. She loves the bryani lamb (RM19.50) – the one here is her favourite in town and of course that was what she had that night.

I did not want to take a lot of photographs as it was night and in the dim conditions, they would not do justice to the food.

My missus had their ikan kembong sumbat (RM17.50) again – it sure looks like this has overtaken the kalio ayam as her favourite dish here.

I had the ayam tandoori and requested for bryani rice (RM17.00)…

…instead of the usual Indian Basmati rice to go with it and yes, the chicken thigh was very nicely done, perfect on the outside and moist and tender on the inside and I loved the delightful flavours of whatever they used to marinate  it.

We overheard an Indian man at the next table ordering some ladies’ fingers, Indian-style so we asked about it. Only then were we shown the menu with all the vegetarian dishes – probably they just assumed we would not be interested in those. We wanted the same but they were out of the vegetable (I reckoned that if it was something picked by a true-blue Indian man from India, not a local, that would be very nice) so we had to pick something else. In the end, we settled for the aloo ghobi curry (RM11.50)…

Yes, it was good and rest assured that when we drop by again, we certainly would order more dishes from that menu to try.
