Once Upon A Day in November, Part 1

First of all… Happy Belated Birthday to Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong! (born, 27th December 2006).
Finally changed the blog template to a brighter one and also put up a new banner picture (in conjunction with New Year and also the first blog anniversary). It took me sometime to get a good picture for the banner as my initial plan was to put up some Ferrero Rocher but they turned out too dark, so I have to dig back my archives for a substitute.

Here I wish Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong a Belated Birthday and hope it’ll continue to deliver more good eateries to all food lovers out there!

*25th November 2007, early morning.

Frankie: Hey, let’s go out! I wanna scout and do price survey on PSP (PlayStation Portable).
Me: You really gonna buy that? Where to?
Frankie: Where else, of course Sg. Wang.
Me: Oh, okie okie.

*One and a half hour later, Sg. Wang.

Frankie: You help me to ask ah, you know how good my Cantonese skill are.
Me: Speak English then. πŸ˜›
Frankie: There, there, quick. Ask ask.
Me: *blabbering with the salesman/salesgirl*

*Repeat few times πŸ˜›

Frankie: Hungry, let’s go for lunch. Didn’t you mentioned that your flogger friend recommend a place for pumpkin fried rice here?
Me: Yeah. She said it’s facing Amoda building and Times Square.
Frankie: This place then. Good Happiness right?
Me: She didn’t tell me the name of the place. πŸ˜›

So we were seated comfortably at a corner in Good Happiness, another HK-styled cafΓ© in Low Yat Plaza with bright, orange colour interior, LCD TVs, high ceiling (too high till I feel it’s a bit empty) and plenty of vacant tables. Not a good sign! But since we’re tired from all the walking, we decided to try them out. The Ying Yong (Iced Milk Coffee + Tea), RM 2.50 and my Ribena Lemon, RM 3.50 were just normal, nothing to comment about.

I had the so-called Wong Kam Fried Rice, RM 9.90 which is fried rice cooked with frozen mixed vegetables, shrimps, egg, chicken ham and topped with some caviar. Interesting and colourful presentation but the rice was a bit wet and soggy, hence I didn’t really enjoy it.

But the accompanied dried chilli paste actually saved the day! It’s deliciously spicy-ish, crunchy and salty-ish. I detect there’s dried shrimp in it and it’s so addictive, I asked the waitress to give me another small plate of this. The spiciness was just alright but you might feel your tongue numbed a bit if you take too much in one shot. I just love the chilli paste.

My companion went for the Pumpkin Fried Rice, RM 10.90 which is served inside the hollowed pumpkin like the one my friend had at U-Village. The difference: the ingredients. Presentation was quite plain and same as mine, the rice were soggy. He was hoping that his rice would be bursting with pumpkin flavour but it seems that all they did was dug a hole in the pumpkin and put in plain-ish fried rice.

Frankie: Nothing special about this place lah. I still prefer Kim Gary.
Me: Me prefer Wong Kok Char Chan Teng.
Both: *burst into laughter with no apparent reason* πŸ˜›
