Those who knew me personally would be aware that I’ve been MIA for almost a week now. Well, I have a good reason to be MIA. Real life gave me reason to be away from the keyboard and the screen, and from now on til December 2010… I’ll probably be away on and off too, and most of my entries would be scheduled. I’ll be online on and off to check and to keep in touch with all of you of course, but I definitely won’t be glued to the screen.
I’ve been MIA these few days because I wasn’t around, and I was quite busy preparing for this year’s NaNoWriMo as well as busy traveling. I have a lot to complain about the traveling part, and I will definitely do so in due time, but for now…I just want to say that sometimes, when you take wrong turns in life… things can actually be pleasant if you know how to enjoy this.
Take this for an example. My husband and I took a few wrong turns the other day, and ended up in this restaurant somewhere in Cheras. I don’t know the exact address, but it’s somewhere in Jalan Jejaka,Taman Maluri,Cheras,KL. Located near Jusco.
Restoran Thim Kee Seafood. It was rather late. We were there at about 10.30pm. The rest of the restaurants around there are already closing. This was the only restaurant left. I noted another peculiar thing.
While this restaurant is a Chinese restaurant… where the waiter and waitresses and are Chinese, the people who patronized that restaurants are not Chinese. Majority of them are Indians… until my family and I stepped into the restaurant, none of the patrons are Chinese… which is rather strange to me, because I had expected at least one table being patronized by Chinese family and whatnot, considering that this restaurant is a completely Chinese restaurant, serving Chinese delicacies. Even the menu is written in Chinese. Initially, I thought people would have problems ordering food if they don’t speak any Chinese dialect.
But apparently, nobody have problems ordering over here, even if they don’t speak any Chinese dialect.
I was practically starving so I just ordered some simple stuff to eat.
Crunchy fried sotong, coated with perfect batter. The sotong is out of the world. The curry batter was really crunchy and nice. It was served with crunchy lettuce leaves along with huge sliced cucumber.
Fu Yong eggs withÂ generous fillings of various meat, seafood and veggies inside.
And the kangkung goreng belacan (fried water convulvulous fried with fermented prawn paste). This one is to die for. The kangkung was really fresh and young, and the belacan was really strong in this dish.
Total damage to the poket was Rm25, including drinks and rice. Expensive? Well… you’d say it’s expensive if you didn’t see the portion of the dishes. The portion of the dishes was really, really, huge, and I can safely say that it could feed 4-5 person rather than just 2! I was really surprised, actually, when the food arrived. It’s really, really huge portion, and we had to takeaway the fried sotong, as it was too much for us to finish.
The service in this restaurant is really fast too. We just need to wait around 10 minutes and the food came piping hot to our table. Overall, I was really satisfied with the restaurant, and should my husband and I were to accidentally wander to this place again, we’d definitely patronize the place again.
Cleffairy: Life is full of surprises.
