It’s been raining the whole day! Would have been so nice to just stay at home and snuggle up in bed with a book… But, i had to work.. Helped to pack some of the zakat packages at work and also now am ask to print statements-to which i seriously think that i’ll have to put them in envelopes..again..
Went home and joined gramps for dinner. Promised granpa that i’d accompany him for Bak Kut Teh. Pity him cos noone seems to want to eat with him even though he’s spending! Lol..
So we went to the Bak Kut Teh shop next to Hoppy Kepong . Aman Puri..
We used to come here pretty often, until i think Gramps found their soup version not so good. This place is more known for the claypot “black” / dry version..
2 pots of the dry bak kut teh (1 person portion)
Was good.. but too bad gramps don’t like the lean meat, or else i could have eaten healthier portion. But i did try to remove as much fat as possible. The black sauce was good because of the lady’s fingers, dried chilli and dried “sotong” fried with it I was practically scraping the bowl to get those bits!
I didn’t have it with rice, but gramps did.. Grandma actually finished her bowl of rice!!
What’s Bak Kut Teh without Yau Char Kwai? (fried dough)
We ordered only one portion at first, clearly it wasn’t enough, so grandpa ordered another soon after..
It’s nice to dunk it in the soup for a bit, my aim: to remove some oil.. Gramps aim: make it soft.. I like my yck hard/crunchy..
The soup was nice.. Very Gao.. not diluted like some places.. Intense herbal flavour!
Besides YCK, grandpa was looking forward to the tofu pok (Dried beancurd).
It was good, but i still like mine crispy.. but it’s still a form of “vege”.. We ordered an extra portion of this too..
All together, inclusive of two bowls of rice and 3 pax Jasmine Tea, the bill came up to RM29 something. Reasonable.
I feel that they should give more meat though..
Food: 7.5/10 | Service: 7.5/10 | Price: 7/10 | Ambience: 6/10

Came home, had my usual prune, and decided to have a dessert!
Mr Goodbar-Hershey’s which Ye Vonn bought for me ages ago.. I think it could even have been expired.. But who cares? Right?? Lol..
Was so good.. I hardly indulge myself with after dinner desserts such as these.. But it was a good chocolate and peanut bar.. But i do miss my Reese’s peanutbutter cups !
During work after lunch, i did finish my trail mix!
Sooo good.. Hehe.. Beginning to love almonds.. Missed my apple and didn’t have my Milo. Surprisingly, didn’t feel that hungry.
Got home, before leaving for dinner, had a prune and some grapes!
Ta for now! I’m so glad i’ve updated the blog!
