Stay at home…

I had to go out the 17th instant, the day before the Movement Control Order/Restricted Movement Order was to commence, to settle some urgent matters after which I would go back to the house to stay indoors for the two-week duration.

On my way home, I stopped by my regular grocery store as there was something I wanted to buy but the shop was not open…at 8.30 a.m.! My guess was that it would open late so I went to the coffee shop next door for a plate of kampua mee

…which obviously would be the last one for quite a while.

They had a new menu…

…now and looking at the old one, it looked like they had increased the prices so they were more or less the same as most places around town. I would have expected things to be a little cheaper here being in the outskirts, not in the town centre, and they probably owned the shop as well so there would not be any need for them to pay rent.

The coffee…

…was great and so was the mee

I noticed the lady taking the complimentary soup from a big pot on the gas stove at the back, not from the cauldron like what they do at most places and yes, it was heaps nicer than the plain water with light soy sauce and msg and a sprinkling of chopped spring onions elsewhere.

While I was enjoying my order, I heard the people next door moving the stuff out onto the pavement, opening for the day. Yes, the shop was open so once I was done, I went over, grabbed what I wanted and headed straight home.

TUNG MING CAFE (2.307601, 111.824983) is located along Lorong Delta 10, the second shop in the first block of shops on your right, after the first one – a grocery store, as you turn into the lane from Jalan Delta in the vicinity of the houses behind the Delta Public Swimming Pool.
