Raya II: Spring Cleaning
On the second day of Raya, mum and I went on a spring cleaning spree. Not really sure why. LOL. Mopped the floor; Burnished some bronze; Waxed the top of my car (I'm a procrastinator); Cleaned all the fans; Phew! For lunch, mum pan-fried a chunk of salmon fillet and boiled a daikon-pea soup. In the evening, MaisonSK hosted dinner. She was most probably bored out of her mind cause she was stuck at home with her granny. She whipped up some soupy rice vermicelli with meat dumplings and sliced pork.
I met KH for coffee after that. He wanted to try the hidden cafe in Happy Garden called La Faro. Never expected such a place in a residential area, right opposite the Nalanda Education & Outreach Centre. La Faro occupies two shop lots and serves food and drinks. We shared a flat white and a slice of non-halal tiramisu. Both of us tried the cake and found it thoroughly lacking in non-halal-ness. KH went over to the counter to make a query. Turns out they gave us the halal version. They brought over the correct cake later. Two for the price of one, not bad! However, it still lacked kick. MYR2 doesn't make a big difference. We won't be going back.
