Our Raya Lunch

Lynn, my colleague who is back from her confinement leave, gave us a delicious sumptious lunch this afternoon. There were eight of us altogether and we had a good time in Sin Hup Kee Restaurant, along Leong Sin Nam Street, IPOH.

The best time of our lives is this season, where the office is abnormally quiet because of the Raya week. Most of our muslim colleagues are not back to work as yet, they will come back next week and then, it will be my turn to take my annual leave...

Meanwhile... lets look at what we "walloped" today....


their speciality "kon cheen kai"
stir fried chicken


claypot trotter with lotus


sweet potato leaves


steamed eggs (3 types of eggs)


steamed beancurd with minced meat


assam curry stingray


their famous long beans with eggplant


our dessert - kuih talam


this is the shop &
our "lady boss" for today...

The bill came to RM86.00 plus rice and drinks..
To me, it is considered very cheap...
