Same routine…

After three days of bustling activity and merry-making, come Sunday, it was back to the same ol’ routine.

We went to the early morning church service as we could not go for the one the night before and after that, we went for a quick brunch here before making our way to my girl’s school in the jungle.

I had the nasi biryani

…with mutton curry…

…and it was so very nice that morning so I tapao-ed that for my girl’s dinner in her quarters that evening. We were so pre-occupied with all the things going on in the last few days that we did not have time to cook some nice things for her to enjoy during the course of the week.

My missus had their kampua mee daging (beef)…

…and she loved it – better than a lot of the Chinese stalls, she said. For one thing, the complimentary soup…

Sri Pelita sup tulang

…would be definitely win hands down by a mile – here, you will get their very nice sup tulang, not the over-diluted bone stock soup with msg and a sprinkling of chopped spring onions added that I would usually leave untouched.

My girl wanted their murtabak daging (beef)…

…and yes, she enjoyed it very much except that for reasons unknown, it was so very big! She could not finish it all so she had it packed to be eaten later at  her quarters.

I also asked for their nasi lemak kukus with ayam berempah to be packed for us to take away in case we got hungry later as it was quite an early brunch.

The very nice boss, Guna, was not around – they said he was at their other branch in Permai leaving the handsome and just as friendly Indian guy in charge. Thus, I did not expect any “special discount” that morning but I was quite sure I saw RM42.00 on the calculator but the guy asked me for RM35.00 only for all the food and drinks. Gee!!! That was so kind of him, really!

We sure enjoyed everything we had and we certainly would be coming back again, no question about that!

  1. Your wife’s choice is always my kind of choice too! I would settle for kampua noodles anytime.

    Noodles may not be enough for me the rest of the day…till we reach home around 3 or 4.

  2. I want that nasi briyani with mutton curry.

    Pretty good, the one here and not too expensive as it is a coffee shop, not a classy cafe.

  3. I would definitely go for your missus choice that comes with a nice bowl of complimentary sup tulang.

    I’m sure you wouldn’t. She asked for it to be extra spicy. LOL!!!

  4. Ooo, never seen kampua mee with beef around here, when it comes to nasi briyani mutton is always my first choice too.

    This is one of the halal ones around here – they are getting into it in a big way around here, so you’ll get a choice of beef or chicken. No pork lard, of course, just shallot oil, but even at the Chinese stalls, most of the time, you may get a very light hint or none at all. One told me that they mix the oil these days because lard is too expensive.
