Twice Wrongly Charged At Famous Dart, Taman Sutera, Johor

HOW DO I SPEND THE DAYS IN JOHOR?   Very easy... wake up late, take lunch, go marketing, walk around the little nest with a broom, prepare dinner, take dinner and then TV throughout the evening till bedtime.  Of course, I managed to squeeze in some blogging work during the day as well.  That is how I juggle my "chores" while I am here in Johor.  Other than that, no extra activities like gym or walking the dog.  My girl is not here otherwise go gym-ing every day, no joke!

Other than food, I do not know what else to post up during my stay here.  I am very thankful that my dear in-law takes me out daily for my first meal and we normally go for something heavy to fill up our tummies.  On this particular morning, she took me to a place called Famous Dart at the Taman Sutera ....
I ordered this bowl of fish noodles with koay teow.... 
With salted vegetables and fresh fish, the soup was to my liking... 
Priced at RM13,90

My in-law ordered something simpler... 
Noodles with a few slices of abalone strips... RM8.90
And as "sidekicks", we have these fish balls.... RM7.30
Our first meal of the day... 
The portions are quite huge and I am surprised that I could finished them all regardless... 
When the bill came, it was around RM30...
My SIL briefly went through the bill and realized that her bowl of noodles was not charged...
Called the lady over and she thanked us for pointing out her mistake...
When the separate bill came, it was RM13.90 instead of RM8.90...
Oh, another mistake on her part!
She apologised profusely for her second mistake...
I guess she must have lots on her mind on that day....
hhhmmmm....

  1. Huh?? Abalone noodles for RM8.90?? I thought the standard price for it is RM15 (Malaysian) to RM20 (Singaporean)... cheap!!

  2. Oh dear! How to do business when so poor at calculations? Like this place I went to - tomorrow's post but I did not mention it in my blog - RM11.00, RM3 + RM5 + RM1.50 + RM1.50...and I told the girl I had tosai and she added RM2.30 and I said it was tosai telur so she deleted the RM2.30 and added RM3.00 - not that she was so busy, there were a lot of customers or what. Terrible! I could have just paid RM11.00 and left!

  6. I prefer your fish noodle than the abalone noodle. Johor's price is higher than Ipoh's.

    2. Thank you but I am funny as I have no desire to retire. I wish that I could still work and be useful when I am over 70 years old like those in China and Japan. (if I could reach that age**)

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
