Selamat Hari Raya To All Who Celebrates!

Coming to work on this particular Monday brings joy to me and to all my colleagues! Today is the eve of Hari Raya and we are all in the festive mood. Muslims or not, we share the same country and we are happy to greet each other Selamat Hari Raya!

Though the office is kind of quiet today, we do not want to be left out in this auspicious day... a few of us decided to celebrate too... and guess what makes us most happy on such an occasion? It is of course through our stomach! hahhahaa....

When the word "FOOD" is mentioned, no one hesitates.... all agreed readily and happily, forking out RM27.00 for this sumptuous POON CHOY in East Ocean, Menglembu......

For the very first time in my History,
I ate Poon Choy aka mini "monk jump over the wall"
"subsidary of the real Fatt Tiew Cheong"

The Treasures are inside....

the first layer... scallops and the prawns!

the second layer...
with assorted seafood and mushrooms..

the generous fresh scallops...
and... andd...
(excuse me, forgot the names!)

in a matter of minutes..
all walloped into "safety" inside our stomachs...

The Happy Food Gang!
Looks like Chinese New Year hor?
all wearing red-red... ang-ang...

So...until the next round....

Selamat Hari Raya!
