There are things in life that need not much detailing. Nor glittery stardust ending to clothe a prose. The science of it breezes through the same channel of inhalation.

You will understand if you’ve found yours.

A familiar dialect, a hearty meal.

The same old you.

So you're saying that this is one good meal? Cool. I love a good fish porridge. As far as stall food goes, I think the one at chinatown in KL tastes pretty good.

live2talk, i agree!!!! like that song back in the 80's by a hong kong singer...something like, "salted wish and bak choy will taste just as good when you are around"...how true! :)

cumi & ciki, haha! the same old me. that's me, i guess! once a foodie, always a foodie. that's me as well...hehe...food does remind us of who we were and what we wanted to be as we grow up. that's what i believe lar... :)

j2fkm, lurve sang yue chuk! sometimes, i wonder if paying lotsa money for sashimi is worthwhile when a plate of sang yue only costs S$3.00..hehe...ok lar, it's a different story altogether.
hehehe, yeah, decided to do a short but reflective post on delicious food that reminds us of the simpler, innocent times. :)

Nic (KHKL) said...

fatboybakes, poetic? hehehe...ya lor, i was so surprised to see the price of the mee hoon! quite substantial somemore! taste ok lar. not too bad.

joe, i couldnt agree more! :) the food's simple and tasty! i love the porridge! soft and smooth. the cantonese style. and raw fish is da bonus! da bomb!

mimi, love economy fried mee hoon! with some curry sauce, fried chicken and sambal! shiok! hehehe...very convenient as well!

lyrical lemongrass, yupe, looks good, definitely! i've been eating here for the longest time already. and the taste is quite consistent! the dumpling's good as well. maybe i'll do a part deux lar hor? hehe...

Lyrical Lemongrass said...
