Kuala Lumpur Day 10: Breakfast at Jalan Imbi

Ben decided to go Jalan Imbi for breakfast. We had breakfast here a lot while we were still working in Kuala Lumpur. We left home early to avoid the traffic jam and had a nice long breakfast in town before Ben dropped me off at Jalan Sultan Ismail and drove to his office.

Kuala Lumpur Day 9: Chinese Dinner

Ben and I met up with my ex boss and family for dinner. We were pretty excited to meet the latest addition to the family. I cant believe J & A are grandparents now. Congrats to the family.

It was a long story on how we ended up at this restaurant. J had other restaurant in mind but unfortunately, the restaurant was closed on Monday. We tried to go another restaurant and it was also closed. Well, it seems like Monday is a popular day for restaurant to close for business after a hectic weekend.

J did the ordering. The above was Spicy Prawn with lady fingers. The sauce definite goes well with steamed rice.

Sour cabbage and bitter melon. I like the sour and bitter combination. Ben is not a fan of bitter melon. So, I never cook bitter melon at home.
