Blue…

My cousin and her hubby from the UK were out with another cousin of ours here in Sibu the second day they were in town so I did not get to see them again until the 3rd day by which time she had unpacked her suitcase so she was able to pass the gifts she had brought all the way from the UK…

Gifts from the UK

…specially for me, thank you so much, Eleanor and Phil.

Long before she came, she had seen my photographs in my blog or on Facebook of the nasi kerabu here and she was very keen on giving it a try. According to her, there is a craze for this bunga telang or blue butterfly pea flower tea over in the UK as word went round that it has some health benefits and it was sold out in no time at all.

They all had the nasi kerabu ayam percik, drumstick (RM6.50)…

…and yes, they loved it a lot – the exotic flavours and fragrances and its mild spiciness!

That was on a Friday so I had the fish (RM6.00)…

…and yes, I enjoyed that very much too.

After that delightful lunch, I took them to see my mum and an aunt of ours and her family, after which, we stopped by the Lau King Howe Hospital Memorial Museum…

They found many things of interest there, all the information, the history and what not and they spent a long time there. It was hot and sunny when we got there…

…but by the time they were done, it suddenly started pouring cats and dogs so I did not have much choice but to send them back to their hotel and to pick them up later for dinner…but that would be in the next post. Stay tuned!

WARONG CAFE (2.318841, 111.831732), formerly Sri Tanjung Cafe, is located among the shops in between Jalan Tapang and Jalan Tapang Timur towards the end of Jalan Kampung Nangka – RTM Sibu is located right across the road on the right.

  1. I’m imagining that cantucci with a glass of sweet wine.

    That day, somebody commented that the parmesan crisps I got from the US would be nice with wine too…and I don’t drink, the irony of it all. 😀

  2. I spotted a stuffed green chili in your nasi kerabu. Is there one too in the nasi kerabu ayam? The nasi kerabu looks so delicious and the price is so good too.

    Yes, they were intrigued by the stuffed green chili and wondering what was in the filling and yes, it comes with every order of the nasi kerabu set, never mind fish or chicken. It wasn’t spicy hot that day and they loved it!

    I saw at that place at the Gardens, a plate of nasi kerabu would set one back by over RM20.00 but then again, that’s a classy place in a classy mall so I guess that’s to be expected.

  3. The price of the fish is good, the other time, i order for my mum, S$8, somemore coffeeshop.

    This one is also a coffee shop, nothing fancy but yes, I love their prices…and of course, most of what they serve here.

  4. Both set looks great. As always, I thought fish is more expensive than chicken. How come yours cost 50 cents less than chicken? Is that green chilli acar in your set?

    Acar? Where? There’s the stuffed green chili and the salted egg and all the raw vegetables plus the sambal, the kerabu and what not. Don’t think they serve acar with nasi kerabu. Their fish is cheaper but that’s just kembong, not one of those expensive and much coveted fish. I love kembong though – more than a lot of the expensive ones.

  5. Oh. Butterfly pea flower has medicinal benefit? I didn’t know that.

    Nasi kerabu. I love that but it has been a while since I have one. Must find one thus weekend. 😉

    Dunno where my cousins went but it looked like there’s a good one in Kuching.

    Yes, they dry the petals for sale to make tea.

  6. That nasi kerabu, who wouldn’t love it.
    By looking at the photo, already win! ^_^

    It’s as good as it looks, and reasonably priced some more. The only one we have in town and thankfully, it is very very nice. We only had others during Ramadhan, the Kelantanese folks residing here – they would sell this during the puasa month but no, I did not come across any that was as nice.

  7. ooo, a hospital turned into a museum … interesting! do you still recall the days back then when the museum was still a functioning hospital? 🙂

    Yes, I had my tonsils removed there when I was 5 and had to go there on a few other occasions as well. My missus worked there before they moved to the present Sibu General Hospital so I was a regular there, sending her to work and picking her up after work.

  8. The fried fish looks crispy, must be very crunchy too! Weather nowadays is unpredictable.. yesterday afternoon was sunny and suddenly during the evening, it poured like cats and dogs.. 🙂

    It was like that day, Friday right through to Saturday, Sunday and Monday but it has been good these two days. Hopefully it will stay that way.

  9. Sooooo neat to see the buildings! Thanks for sharing the snapshots and travels!

    That’s Sibu for you, our humble little town.
