Come & go…

I did mention in an earlier post that Peter was not around when I dropped by the café…


…on the night of my birthday. Well, he called me the following day and invited me over the following evening…

Bunga kantan

…for a belated celebration.

Of course I could not go empty-handed – the Chinese have this phrase, “Oo lai oo khi!” (Got come, got go!) so on the way there, I dropped by here to buy their very nice durian cheesecake…

Durian cheesecake

…to bring along with me to enjoy with everybody else – my friends gave me a slice that day and I loved it so much!

Peter had this absolutely out-of-this-world chicken in traditional Foochow red wine soup specially cooked for me to enjoy with our Foochow longevity noodles, the mee sua

Birthday mee sua

– a must eat on birthdays and other special occasions and as if that huge bowl of the noodles, the meat and the eggs were not enough, he also served me a separate bowl of the awesome soup and some more of the meat!

Yes, everyone enjoyed the cake and it so happened that an ex-colleague of mine was there with her hubby for dinner (extreme left in the photograph below)…

Dining at Payung

– she said they love the rojak very much. I don’t know what else they had but I did cut two slices of the durian cheesecake, one each, for them to enjoy and yes, she said it was very nice.

Thank you so so much, Peter, for the very special and exclusive birthday treat – it certainly was so very nice of you to go through the trouble of doing that specially for my birthday…again this year!
