Bye-Bye At Serai

Went for a pan mee breakfast at Super Kitchen, Seri Petaling. A word of advice, if you want to drink their gingko barley, don't go too early. Loitered at the Seri Petaling wet market while waiting for CK to arrive at the LRT station. Amazingly SK found granny blouses selling for just MYR5 at one the stalls. Reject items no doubt. But still, just five bucks le! Later in the afternoon, I picked up SK's granny and we met her at Serai, Empire Subang. It was a farewell tea gathering for CK who was leaving for his doctorate in Scotland. We were joined by several of SK's colleagues and also CK's suspected love interest (but of course they deny it, though they were caught massaging each other in just their swim trunks by the moonlight :P). Shared some cakes, drank some juices (the Honeydew Blast put me into a coughing fit!), did some chit-chat.

Sensing that mum was getting bored, we left halfway through to do some shopping at Jaya Grocer. The tea party ended not long after that, but we continued on at Empire. Went to Aino and KitchShoppe and found some pretty cool deals on Brabantia and Maxim products. For some reason, we always buy kitchen stuff when in Empire. Dinner time was near, so we ate there as well. Went to Marutama Ramen and tried their special Aka Ramen. Thick soup and very fragrant due to the seven types of nuts in it (and a twist of lemon). The noodles were also thinner and had a nice texture. Speaking of ramen, I have yet to try Ippudo at The Pavilion. Supposedly a must-try.
