Her and her friend…

My girl was with her for five years, two years at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand and the rest at the teacher training institute in Sungai Petani, Kedah. Her husband was also at the latter and that was where they met. They came over to Sibu in December, 2017 to attend another coursemate’s wedding and she was very much in the family way already at the time, expecting their first born.

When we were in Miri that day, she and her husband and their two sons and a nephew came to pick us up at the hotel and they took us for lunch here…

Ming Garden Restaurant Miri

We had this…

Braised peanuts with garlic

…to munch while waiting for the dishes to be served.

The stewed pork belly…

Stewed pork belly with mantao

…was not as nice as the one we have here in Sibu – the layer of fat on top was fine but the lean part at the bottom was quite a chore to chew. The mantao was not sliced so I did not bother to stuff it with the meat and fat and just ate it like that.

The sweet and sour prawns in the lovely yam basket…

Sweet & sour prawns in yam basket

…were very nice and there was also this vegetable dish…



They ordered this dish for their nephew, the butter milk chicken…

Butter milk chicken

…as he was allergic to pork and it turned out to be very nice and we kept helping ourselves to it. Luckily, there was enough to go round so the poor boy did not have to go hungry. LOL!!!

Thank you so much, Myra & Jantum, for taking us out and treating us to this very delightful lunch. It sure was nice to see you all again.
Kalau ada sumur di ladang
Boleh kami menumpang mandi
Kalau ada umur yang panjang 
Boleh kita berjumpa lagi.
