Wan Than Mee

Jalan Tengah flat kopitiam (morning stall run by two aunties)

At this Bayan Baru area (I stress again, not town area ah), it can be considered one of the good Wan Than Mee stalls. From the serving itself, you may not know it's good but once you taste it, I believe you'll hardly say 'not nice'. (Remark: You can try ordering from another stall which is located just 45 deg apart then straightaway you'll know)

Firstly I dislike wan than mee that is mixed with 'lor'. This one is not.
Secondly, the wan than mee (dry) must come with soup wan than, not fried wan than, preferably with a separate bowl. Nowadays it's getting less and less stalls willing to serve wan than in this traditional way.
Thirdly, the mee itself plays a very important role.

Go and taste it then let me know. RM2.20 serving is small though :)

The View @ Equatorial Hotel

We held a farewell dinner @ The View, Equatorial Hotel on 17 Mac 08 for our managers AA and HT.

It's been ~ 2yrs or more since we last had such kinda 'gathering' again at The View. This round there were ~ 40x of us.

"We should have such kind of dinner annually!" some said so. Of course not only meant for farewell lah but rather an event for colleagues from different departments to dine and get together.

Our dining tables.

The semi-buffet corner - the most popular one of coz was the smoked salmon section!

Another popular one was this - oyster & prawn corner.

The appetizer corner

The dessert corner

My serving deco.

Main dishes - each accompanied by vege soup + 1 scoop of sorbet (bottom left).

Hohoho!!!! Red wine was belanja by our MD! How many bottles did we consume? 4x? 6x? I had no idea loh. The drinks were belanja by mgr, TS.

I enjoyed this farewell very much! :)

Astronomic Kopitiam

Astronomic Kopitiam fusion food (美食餐室) @ Persiaran Mahsuri, Sunway Tunas (behind KWSP row)

Right : Hainan fried mee (RM5), Ooi keo fried rice (RM5). Left :Set lunch RM6.50 (sambal fried rice, mango cordial, soup).

Going here during Friday lunch was definitely not a good timing as they served very slowly. Food wise, OK.
