The very next day…

Normally, we would go to the sunset service on Saturday in one of the churches here so on Sunday morning, we could do a bit of cooking – my girl’s rations for the week and after an early lunch at around 10 something, we would be on our way to her school in the jungle.

Last Saturday, however, it rained so very heavily at around mid-afternoon and though it did ease a bit by evening, the downpour had not stopped so we decided to get up early the following morning to go to the 7.30 a.m. service and after that, we went for breakfast.

We were here…

…for lunch on Saturday and believe it or not, we went there again the very next day!

My girl loves the thosai here and when I asked her if she would like that, she jumped at the suggestion without a second thought. I ordered the paper-thin one…

…for her – it is usually served rolled up…

…like a newspaper.

I also ordered another one, the regular…

…to share.

Other than the dhal dip and the fish curry gravy, Guna, the nice boss, gave us this sambal nenas (pineapple)…

…and the prawn sambal tofu that we liked so much the day before, to eat with the thosai.

No, my missus was not really into thosai so she ordered a plate of mee mamak

…for herself and she sure was delighted when it was served with all the chopped cili padi sprinkled on top.

I also ordered the murtabak daging

…which, unfortunately, my girl could not eat as being made from wheat flour, it was not gluten-free. She was moaning away and had her eyes on the corned beef…

…inside, together with chopped Bombay onions. Yes, she loves corned beef very much too – I think I will have to open a can to cook for her, with potatoes added, when she comes home this weekend. She can eat that, nothing in it that will trigger the symptoms due to her gluten-intolerance.

Back to our breakfast that morning, I went to pay the bill and Guna just collected RM20 from me for everything, our drinks inclusive. As I was walking past, I saw the lovely sambal terung they had in the cabinet and I asked one of the boys to give me some of that, take away, for my girl to bring along with her but Guna came and took over and gave me a whole lot…and refused to accept any payment for it. My! My!  I think next time, I will have to go to their other outlet in Permai so I will be able to enjoy the food and get to pay for what I eat – he is usually at this outlet, not there.
