Nobody but you…

The other morning, after dropping my girl off at school, I stopped by here…

Sibu Cafe

Somebody would come when you are seated…

…to take your temperature and to get you to write that down in a record book alongside your name and contact number. No sanitiser was provided though so I guess if you are planning on coming here, you will have to bring your own or do what I do – keep a few packs of alcohol swabs (Yes, that’s what those are, not condoms!!!) in your wallet for times like this.

The last two times I was here, I went to the nicer and classier extension next door for the fried Chinese carrot cake or koay khak and for the beef noodles and I was here for the fried noodles from the stall in the original section once. I can’t remember when I last had the kampua mee

…probably in 2017, if I am not wrong. Well, I was feeling like having that that morning and anyway, I did not have a choice. I was too early and nobody else but this stall was open – the aforementioned section was still closed and so were the other stalls in the original shoplot, just this one – the kampua mee stall.

I ordered a bowl of pian sip (meat dumplings) soup…

…to go with it and the guy held back the sliced meat that would usually come with the noodles and gave me the kosong (no meat) instead.

Both were all right, pretty much the same as all the other so-so places in town, nothing to make it stand out above the rest and like elsewhere as well, I was charged RM5.00 for the two…and I was thinking that I could have gone here and paid a ringgit more for the special which I am pretty sure I would enjoy a lot more.
