Missed Connections at a Burger Bar
For a long-long time, SK did not join mum and I for Saturday marketing at OUG, preferring to settle it in Puncak Jalil. Quite miracle that she joined me that morning. Must have woken up too early and couldn't get back to sleep. Nothing new at the OUG Wet Market, except for a new stall selling birds nest! Basically the type that they rear in swiftlet houses. Unprocessed and chock full of feathers and pieces of wood. Mum bought two pieces and that came to around MYR30. Breakfast was at Restoran Alisan, Seri Petaling for the famous Hakka noodles. Lovely texture and big portion (but a tad oily). Too bad the place is ventilated like an oven.
In the afternoon, was supposed to have lunch with ConanCat but he didn't turn up at Burger Bar, Kuchai Lama. Didn't reply to the group chat and our calls went unanswered. Didn't think too much about, so we went ahead without him. We (KH & SK joined) tried all three types of meat-- pork, chicken beef. My jumbo sausage was similar to Taiwan's 'big sausage wrap small sausage' (don't mix that up with frotting between two guys with different endowment). Their drinks menu had recently been expanded to include coffee. Just MYR3.50 to MYR4.00 for a handsome looking cup of coffee! Truth be told, the presentation even beats coffee joints. Back home, brought mum to check out the latest 'shopping' joint in Puncak Jalil-- Setia RM2! LOL. Everything for MYR2.00, but some items are priced as composites, so its not quite MYR2.00. But many items are sold at that price, inclusive of food stuff, drinks, cups, sanitary pads, shampoos, etc. Not really stuff that I would dare to use. LOL. Think I'll stick to SuperSave.
Went to Bukit Jalil for a prayer gathering in the evening. A parishioner's mum had passed away the week before so had a prayer session for her. Some makan-makan after that. Didn't take too long. The afternoon's Hakka noodles didn't agree with her stomach, so we stopped a while at Ocean Bubble Tea House for something sour. Sat a while and played Jenga with mum & SK. Think it was mum's first time. LOL. But there can only be so many pieces that you can remove, so the outcome is similar.
P.S.: Turns out ConanCat's granny was hospitalized, that's why he FFK-ed.
