Con’t from part 7…

It was about 6pm when we finally left JB with Elaine & Patrick leading us to Tebrau to hit the NSE for our journey back to Melaka. Elaine & Patrick head back to JB to continue their hometown visit while the Chung family went straight back to KL. The remaining 7 of us went back to Melaka to spend a night since we don’t have to work the next day and it was a good choice too as the traffic was quite heavy approaching Melaka.

We got back to Melaka and immediate head to Miharu & Sky’s house for a quick shower and rest before heading to Jalan Ong Kim Wee for satay celup as supper. Ah Fei strongly recommended Ban Lee Siang and we obliged. This is Sor J first time trying satay celup… sad KL boy :P.

It was very pack but at least no queue like Capitol… so we got a table at the back and wasting no time, some of us are already picking our celup food. Its the usual satay celup fare, I would not elaborate about it, I am sure enough blogs have information on it but my favourite are the “tau kei” or known as “foo chuk” in KL and also the kangkung veggie. Overall comments are the food at Capitol is fresher but I prefer here, less crowded, at least I don’t have some guy waiting for table standing next to me while I eat! Per stick starts at 50 cents each and we ate more than 100 sticks costing RM69 in total plus drinks.

Sky, Miharu and the very “kek tung” Ah Fei then had a long arguement on where to go for a drink after our supper and we ended up in Kota Laksamana. Unfortunately the place is so packed that we can’t find a table to sit. Since we are there for drinks only, we just went to 1 of the chinese restaurant for tea and softdrinks.

That night, I think I slept the best the whole trip and we decided to get a little later the next day for breakfast. Before breakfast, we dropped by Sky’s house for a short “Raya” visit as he has all these tit bits to serve us. Right before leaving, Sor J keep asking to go and see Sky new house, so we made a short detour as well. Renovation have yet to start but its really big house with nice plot of land too! Jealous-nya… cheaper than my house somemore bigger!

We went to Jalan Tun Sri Lanang, at the makeshift food court where it sells Hee Kiaw Mee, Chicken Rice Balls and Wantan Mee. We are out of luck that morning, the chicken rice balls stall is out of chicken and we could only get the rice balls. But to me, the rice balls are the highlight, not the chicken, so its ok at RM1.50 per plate of 6. We also ordered hee kiaw mee and some of us had wantan mee. Poor Sor J, again never seen orange color fish paste before and I obviously took the chance to conned him that they put orange in the fish paste… hahahaha 😛

After our yummy breakfast, we then depart back home… 2 hours drive but after a good breakfast, seems damn long and sleepy. We made it back by 12 plus and I actually skipped lunch for the day, ate too much for the last few days. It was a good trip again, really fun and thanks to all the MPs who joined us; Sky, Lee Chen, Jess, Miharu, Ah Fei, Sor J, Ed, Johnson, Elaine, Pat, Chung family ;). See you again in 2009 :P.

The End.

Con’t from part 6…

From Pontian, we moved on to Skudai where we want to sample the all famous Skudai Duck Mee that we have seen on Axian AEC programme. It’s said that the duck are braised in a gravy that have been braising ducks for 37 years now! Imagine that, this semangat people actually kept the gravy going for 37 years already to braise their duck.

With very high expectations, we got to Skudai Duck Mee (and narrowly missing head-on accident as blur blur me going the wrong way :P) and the owner here seems to be very friendly, he even posed for photographs but too bad Sky’s lost his pictures in JB :(. We ordered the duck with a load of others like “kai choy” (leaf mustard), braised pig’s head (chee tau pei), intestines, etc. to go with koay teow.

With the name being Skudai Duck Mee… I would think the noodles and soup here are great… but ermm… its not… the soup are not tasty as I expected… its like those duck noodles instant taste. The braised pig’s head and intestines are ok.

What is good here are the braised “kai choy” which I find to be very nice! The other good one of course its their duck, first impression the duck is a little dry but you have to dip it in the dark thick gravy at the bottom to get the good taste, after all, its 37 years old :).

We didn’t ordered full portions for everyone as most of us are still overwhelmed by stuffing ourselves during breakfast. It cost a total of about RM90.00 for everyone.

When we were at the duck mee place, we spotted this bottle of pineapple preserved, Patrick then explains that these are pineapple enzyme which are basically pineapple, lemon and sugar left to ferment in a bottle. See video below:

We decided to give Patrick’s home in JB a visit and to take a short break there. Its basically shophouses with the family’s hardware business downstairs. Some of us took an afternoon shower there while some of us got into games of chor dai di, entertaining little Wai Wai or just watching TV.

We then head to Stulang Laut to check out Elaine & Patrick’s school which is facing Singapore next to ZON. We went around to locate Restoran Woon Kiang after that which is recommended for their koay teow kia by Elaine’s mum unfortunately, they are only opened for business at 5pm. So to burn sometime, we went to ZON to shop with Sky and Ed contributing further to the Johor economy ;).

Later back at Woon Kiang, we can already see cars pouring in for koay teow kia. We wasted no time and order braised pork, pig’s head, tofu, eggs, etc. with our koay teow kia. The soup is very tasty and the braised meats are a whole lot softer than what we had for lunch. But of course, these are different food but I think everyone really enjoyed our early dinner here. I really like their braised pig’s head here, superly soft and nice to eat, the tongue is not bad too but not many people fancy it as I noticed. It adds up to almost RM90 as well with 11 of us eating. A very good place for koay teow kia, thanks Elaine & Patrick for taking us here!

Con’t from part 5…

Next morning we decided to have our breakfast on the way to JB in Pontian town as there are not much to eat for breakfast at the resort area. So we hurried to take a morning shower (which some of us skipped because of the low water pressure, I was brushing my teeth halfway and no water!) and pack up to get ready to leave. We took a group photo before leaving… Elaine, where is it?

We headed out with Patrick & Elaine leading the convoy, they have officially been appointed our tour guides from then on. With pressures to performed on both of them… they finally choose to try out Kedai Makan Lam Yong aka 8383.

Lam Yong are basically 2 shops connected together, the famous thing here is their coffee with the brand 8383. The brand 8383 come to place because when they started to sell coffee powder, customer often got it from the wrong shop and had problem remembering Lam Yong. So, since the family car are all registered 8383, people then tend to say look out for car with 8383 parked outside. Hence, the owner have decided to brand it 8383 and its a good strategy as its easy to remember.

There’s a table of kueh in front and the friendly owner told us to take and he will only charge what we consume but this hungry makan gang ate everything we took with Ed finishing the last standing curry puff on our table :).  Sky just love the “loh pak” kueh here which are steamed from radish and flour then fried and served with chili sauce, I think he finished the whole stack of it. The donut is surprising nice too as its made from sweet potato.

The popiah here is a bit different, as I took the first bite, there are peanuts and sugar in them! Maybe this is popiah Johor style? I don’t fancy it that much but Miharu keeps saying its so good. We also got the traditional toast and half boiled eggs. The toast comes with dripping kaya and butter in it, nice! The half boiled eggs are just nice 1/2 cooked!

With everthing being so nice, I almost forgot to sip the coffee I ordered and I think almost the whole table took coffee. As I sipped, *bomb*… I got a blow in my head… you know like the cartoon… explosion in the head, eyes wide open… well, haven’t reach there… hehe… the coffee is magnificant! I turned to Ed and say you must try the coffee, its superbly good, almost one of the best coffee I had the whole trip! Ed didn’t believe me but he gave me a “wow” look with big eyes after trying as well. Curious? It basically taste like irish coffee to me and I really can’t help but imagine there’s liquor in the coffee… haha.. that is just how good the coffee is!

We asked the boss (Mr. Ching Kim Choon) how come their coffee is so good, he explained that they only use good and high quality beans to fry and powder their coffee and they do not mix. So you get a pure coffee which gives you a superior and thick “kau” taste. You can buy the coffee powder at RM15, its double the usual coffee powder at the supermarket but its worth it! KC, hope you enjoy the pack I bought for you, please bring some to office for me in a thermos :P.

Another yummy here are their Singapore style Hokkien Mee… I have seen this before on AFC channel on astro where they went and find S$2.00 prawn fried noodles. So Patrick ordered a few plates for us to try, total is RM14 for 3 plates plus 1 bowl of curry noodles. The noodles are basically fried without dark soya sauce with eggs, taugeh, meat, etc. It is served with sambal chili and squeeze of lime juice. To me its really nice and the chili is a must to take with it.

Overall, I think we are superbly happy with our breakfast at Lam Yong and the prices are fair too. I strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for good breakfast in Pontian and don’t forget to try their coffee! A must stop for coffee lover ;).
