A Coconut Outing

The prince-s were back on Friday! They arrived at different times, one arrived at 5pm from the north and one reached home after midnite from the south. After a long tok, it was very late when we hit our pillows...

Next morning, awakened by the sound of my son coming into my room, I went out to squint at the grandfather clock on the wall. I saw 2 hands, one showing 10 and one showing 12, so I was thinking it was only 10am nia.. still early, I told him, let me laze for awhile. "Mi, 12pm already, not 10am!" Huh..sure or not.... wa..lauu.... did I really! Never had such a long sleep...since.. since... dont-know-when. Must be super tired, this old mama here...

Imagine half the day gone, we quickly got up, went for lunch in Sun Hup Kee (will post that later), after that, we did some errands and then by 3.30pm, all of us thirsted and cried out for "WATER!! WATERR!!!" .... we found this stall nearby our residential area.....


COCONUTS!!!


busy sipping...
the cooling coconut juice


sip to the bottom-less
don't waste..


then the 2nd best part....


the flesh....


korek, korek...


dig, diggg....


ordered one more for my mum....

Only one regret and mistake :
We didn't ask for the price before we "walloped" these coconuts,
this boss cut coconuts and also our throats.
charging us RM3 for each...
Mama told me RM2.50 only nia...
ok ok...only 50 sen more, i know...

  11. STP, Pg to IPOH, from bridge to ipoh toll is around 2 hrs, ie, if i m driving.. my max is 110hp.. :) , yes, definitely can make day trip if u r not going to do any massive shopping or sightseeing, but for massive eating, a day will be enough...

  12. RM3 is quite expensive! But if it is sweet and big... well, worth it to beat the heat! Yummy

  16. Think the apek is an opportunist on hearing the latest news that coconut juice can prevent AH1N1, so jacked up the price due to more demand now. Possible?

    ReplyDelete

  18. Cheah, possible.. chinese ma.. mindset on money one.. hahaha.. this week i go again, ask first this time..
