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…
We had this…
…to munch while waiting for the dishes to be served.
The stewed pork belly…
…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…
…were very nice and there was also this vegetable dish…
They ordered this dish for their nephew, the 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.

These are the kind of dishes I like. Give a pass to the pork belly if it is too fat. Can’t figure out what is the big white thing in the pork belly dish? Buah keluak?
Mantao. Two types and shapes.
Ermmm….Soaked in the gravy? First time seeing served this way.
Me too! Not a great idea! Lucky not long enough till soggy but so messy with the gravy, couldn’t cut or tear to stuff the meat in them.
I half expecting to see beef wellington in this post.
No, no beef either!
Indeed the food looks very impressive, I like the prawns in the basket.. I am sure it tastes as good as it looks! Sorry for the lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng absence for not coming by… don’t know what to say except due to busyness and also laziness as well!
Have you been to Kuching yet? I’m there right now, my niece’s wedding over the weekend.
all the dishes look so yummy. Love the oink oink
The one in Sibu is nicer – you had that when you were here many years ago.
Is the first plate boiled peanuts? I really like those – better than crunchy ones, in fact.
Yes, braised peanuts and they went a step further here – it looked like they added a sprinkling of chopped garlic. Nice!
Sometimes the lean meat part can get too tough to chew on.
I think that depends on which part the meat came from, some parts not so “siap-siap” (in Hokkien).
