Dinner With Gero

Ming's husband, Gero, flew in from England the other day to join his family for their summer vacation here. Unfortunately, he was quite under the weather.

We went for dinner at Tong's Restaurant at USJ 19 Mall, Subang. The USJ 19 is a relatively new mixed residential and commercial  complex. The Mall houses several restaurants, even a karaoke joint and carrefour supermarket.

I particularly liked the Indonesian clay-pot prawns in santan and of course my favourite vegetable dish kangkong (water convolvulus) stir-fried with belacan (dried shrimp paste) and chillies. The Thai style sweet sour fish was also nice.

Except for the kids who opted for orange juice, we adults washed our food down with Tie-Guan-Yin Chinese tea. It was one of the better Tie-Guan-Yin teas that I have tasted, just nicely fragrant and smooth.

The meal came to about RM125.00, courtesy of Jackie who insisted on paying.

  2. Duncan, I must confess I wasn't aware about the craze until lately. Shows how out of touch I am with kiddie stuff.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
