Late Night Snacks, Bubur Kelantan Stall at Bandar Sri Damansara, Tong Sui, Fried Carrot Cake, Fried Bihun and Yau Char Kwai

If you happen to be around this area and need to take some late supper, you can pop in to this roadside makeshift stall (if you don’t mind eating in this type of environment) that sells a variety of food such as economy fried bihun (rice vermicelli), fried kueh teow (flat rice noodles), fried low shi fan (small short cylindrical sharp ends rice noodles), yau char kwai (Chinese crullers), ham chim peng (fried flour based food with five spice powder), fried carrot cake, steamed carrot cake, a few types of tong sui (dessert) and other crispy fried food. This stall open for business around 6pm and at 11pm, most of the food will be sold out by then. I love the tasty fried bihun and I will normally ‘tar pau’ (takeaway) a large packet for my kids. The carrot cake is nice and the accompanying chilli that has dried prawns in it taste good. After having all the satisfying late supper snacks, I wash down everything with a bowl of fu chuk e mai (barley with bean curd sheet dessert) tong sui. I need a heavy supper to keep me going as I have to take care of my baby boy who is a very light sleeper at night lorrrr! Ha Ha, a good reason to eat more! LOL Fried carrot cake and crispy Chinese Chives (kucai) Fritters. Steam carrot cake with nice chilli. Simple but nice fried bihun....................................Tong Sui, fu chuk e mai.

Tong Sui At Cottage Fresh Cafe, NuiXeZui Commercial Centre, PJ

I had some tong sui in Cottage Fresh Cafe recently. This restaurant is located in the NuiXeZui Commercial Centre. It has a nice interior setting and I feel very cozy here. I ordered tau fu fah (soft bean curd, RM2.50), bubur cha cha (sweet potatoes with coconut milk, RM3.60) and chye kuih (they call it vegebox here, RM3.90 for 4 pcs). The tau fu fah is smooth and nice. If you love creamy stuff, you are sure to like the bubur cha cha from this restaurant. The bubur cha cha has 3 types of sweet potatoes (yellow, violet and red) and also banana in it. The sweetness is just nice for me. The vegebox (chye kuih) is not bad but the chili is a let down. Overall it is nice to dine in such an ambient surrounding. There are also some kiddie’s tables there to keep your kids occupied so that you can enjoy your meal peacefully.
Nice exterior and interior design

Jokes – My American Friend Watched Tiger Show in Pattaya, Thailand

My American friend, John (not his real name) went to Pattaya, Thailand for his holidays and he told me what happened there. It was his first trip to Thailand.

Pete: Hi John, how’s your trip? Did you enjoy yourself there?

John: Thailand is a nice country. I love Thai food, especially Som Tham, a kind of Thai Salad. I ate lots of Thai Pandan Chicken as well.

Pete: What else did you do in Pattaya, besides eating? How’s the nightlife?

John: Well, my tour guide took us on a little extra special site tour.

Pete: Extra special? (I was getting curious)

John: He took us to a tiger show. At first I thought it was supposed to be a tiger taming show, like the ones you see in the circus. But when we reached the venue, it was pitch dark in there and I decided to sit on the back row because I am worried about my safety as the stage was not fenced up!

Pete: Ha ha, so were you surprised when the show starts?

John: Ha ha ha, I quickly moved over to the front row! No tigers, only ladies !

Wong Kee Pudu Hailam Chicken Rice and Famous Roast Pork, KL

Wong Kee requires no introduction. This place is very famous in KL for its’ roast pork. I had lunch in Wong Kee two weeks ago. There were five of us and we ordered a plate of roast pork and char siew (bbq pork). The roast pork is very tasty, tender and the skin is the crunchiest I ever tasted. No wonder this place is so famous. The Char Siew tasted ok only. They start business at 12.30noon. The total bill for 5 people came out to be RM76.30, pricey but the roast pork is damm good!

Food Planet 888 Food Court, SS19, PJ

‘Na noo Na noo, see you at Planet 888 Food court’, I received this sms from my friend. This food court started operation recently and Mr. Tham told me about it. Planet 888 is a very big food court with many stalls and shops inside. There are ample parking spaces and also a car wash here. The first one and a half hour parking is free and so is from 6pm to 6am. I met Mr. Kim, the owner of the Korean Food Stall. Mr. Kim is a very hardworking and friendly person. ‘Anyeong Haseyo!, he will great you. He is real good at promoting his food to whoever passes by his stall. I ordered the Don Gas Dish, which is actually Korean style pork chop, friend rice, Kim chi and fun fries. You can opt for salad if you don’t take Kim chi. The Don Gas dish is priced at RM7, comes with generous serving. The taste, thumbs up. This stall also serves other traditional Korean food priced from RM7 to RM10. Mr. Kim also has another similar food stall in Asia Cafe, Subang Jaya. Kamsa Hamnida Mr. Kim for the nice food.

Genting Super Stars Singing Competition

My Business Partner and I watched the Genting Super Stars Singing Contest audition, when we were in Genting yesterday. Thanks to Benson for informing us about this contest and we managed to catch his friend, Jessie performing a nice Chinese song and a chorus from one of Siti Nurhaliza’s song. She sang quite well on stage. Many contestants were seen waiting for their turn to audition at the Genting International Showroom. The contestants are required to sing without any accompanying music and the judges commented on their singing before deciding whether they are qualified to go into the next round. Some participants were quite nervous on stage but the judges were kind enough to give them some time to regain their composure. I heard that the first prize is quite attractive! Sorry, this contest is open for Genting employees only.

A Working Trip up Genting, Economy Rice at Weng Fatt Restaurant

I got a chance to test out my Business Partner’s brand new Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 this morning, driving it up Genting Highlands. The car is easy to handle, loaded with power and it was real nice driving it all the way to the highlands’ peak.
Mmmm, love the smell of a brand new car. Note the automatic gear that can be used in sequential manual mode.
Our appointment was brought forward to a later time of the day, so we hang around Genting since we were already there. Yay, can go to casino! But unfortunately, I had my notebook with me, sigh! No place to safely keep it. The locker outside the casino is too small. So, we have to hang around the coffee shop. Kedai Kopi & Makanan Weng Fatt is located near the staff quarter, at the 15th Floor Car park (on level below the open air car park) opposite Genting Hotel. They have many choices of food like economy rice, noodles, stir fry noodles and mee, pau and you can also order ala carte dishes to eat with rice. We decided to have a simple meal of economy rice, since the pork trotter in soya sauce looks very tempting. Three dishes of pork trotters, kungpo cuttlefish and tofu cost me RM5 and a large cup of coffee RM2.50. Inside the restaurant which is near the staff quarters. The economy rice that I had. Entrance to the restaurant from the Car park Location: Kedai Kopi & Makanan Weng Fatt 15th Floor, RSC Shopping Centre Car Park 3, Genting Highlands 69000, Pahang Darul Makmur Open : 7am to 12 midnight

Fried Tung Fan (Green beans transparent noodle) , SS2 Food Court, Petaling Jaya

My friend, Tham recommended to me this Fried Tang Hoon (Tung Fan) stall. Stall number 8 (lucky number) is located in SS2, Petaling Jaya food court. This stall sells fried tung fan, fried kueh teow and fried rice. The Fried Tung Fan is served with generous amount of prawns and Chinese sausage (lap cheong). The aroma!, wow!.....very nice. I think this is one of the best Fried Tung Fan I can find in KL. The taugeh is crunchy and the taste of kuchai (Chinese chives) with the springy tung fan is fantastic. “Si Tau”, chow tung fan tor yat tip! (Boss, add one more plate of fried tung fan, please).
Stall number 8..........................................................Yummy Fried Tung Fan
For dessert, I had Leng Chi Kang from stall number 4.

Chow Kee Restaurant, Manjalara

Chow Kee Restaurant started business more than a year ago but I haven’t tried their food until recently. It is a bit further inside from the other group of restaurants around this area, so you can expect it not to be so crowded. I was there with my kids for breakfast and we ordered curry mee, kueh teow soup and jawa mee. The curry mee is of the creamy KL type and a cross of Penang type, taste ok. The kueh teow soup in nice and the taste surely beats many other kueh teow soups in KL. It is served with generous amount of vegetables. The Jawa Mee also has a generous amount of toppings like keropok, vegetable, cucumber strips, fried tau kwa (tofu), shallots and ground peanuts. Overall taste is ok; maybe a little extra salt would improve the taste a bit. Good place for to have breakfast, very friendly restaurant owner, customers and stall operators. Everyone there seems to know each other very well. I will be back here to try the Chee Yoke Fun; recommended by the owner.

Penang Kueh Kark (fried rice flour blocks) at Kepong Baru Wet Market, Kuala Lumpur

I love the kueh kark from this stall. The kueh kark is fried to perfection and I normally have it for breakfast before I start my marketing rounds. The taugeh (bean sprouts) is crunchy and the saltiness is just right. The sizes of the kueh kark chunks are not too big and the soya sauce is spread evenly over it. A small plate cost RM2.80 and a big one is RM3.30. The owner will start operation around 7am and ends at 12noon. Every Sunday, he will sell his kueh kark at the Taman Bukit Maluri, Kepong pasar malam; normally his wife/daughter will take over manning the minivan stall.
Cutting the kueh kark into small pieces using a net with large hole made from monofilament fishing lines. Can also use a tennis racket. LOL . A plate (or rather styrofoam container) of kueh kark.

Hou Mei Fish Head Curry Restaurant, Setapak

I took my sister to this restaurant when she came to KL to visit me recently. We ordered prawn curry instead of fish head curry because we like prawn more than fish. We also ordered Otak-otak and kailan fried with salted fish. We were given complimentary ABC soup. The prawn curry (RM28) is creamy and has nice fragrance. The prawn is fresh and succulent. The otak-otak(RM16) has been fried so it tasted different from the steamed Penang version. However, the otak-otak is tasty. The salted fish kailan (RM13) is ok but a litte bit on the salty side. This restaurant has an ambient atmosphere and it is very relaxing to dine here. The total bill plus drinks for four person came out to be RM69.51. Complimentary soup.............................................Otak-otak Sorry, my camera ran out of battery........so I have to use my HP to snap these photos.... Prawn Curry.....yummy.........................................Salted fish Kailan The Hou Mei Restaurant, corner unit.
