A Memorable Time In First Garden

This afternoon lunch was very "foong foo." (extravagant) Not in terms of cash, but in terms of food. For a mere RM6 per person, we ate a few varieties in three different places. We had a good time together, there were only 3 of us now since May Tan has opted for retirement.

At 1pm we reached Moments Cafe in First Garden, we had 1 plate of fried rice and 1 plate of fried yee mee, shared among 3 of us.... we ordered 2 bec' this cafe served in big portions, very worth it one... and true enough, our stomachs were satisfied with the good food. Too bad I didn't photo them...

Then I suggested we go for tau foo far dessert but ended up eating durians instead. We saw a lot of durians at the road side and couldn't resist going near...then ended up eating all we can... for a mere RM3 only ...hahahhaahahaha.... one durian only cost us RM1 nia... so cheap, man...

eating to her satisfaction
before baby comes out...




The durian boss was very generous, we bought only RM3 from him but he ended up giving us more than three durians... so nice of him.... when he saw me snapping his durians, he said "hang on, wait, snap me with these durians on my hands." Gleefully, I obliged, of course....

After the durian session, we bought 2 fresh coconuts and drank all.... wahhh.... so cooling effect.. so enjoyable today... and memorable...... hhmmm.....
