Geylang Lor 9

SDC11693

Breakfast today: Blueb morning as I was in a hurry. Delish breakkie when you’re in a rush. But sadly, it’s one of the fastest compared to oats. I down it in record time since it gets soggy fast! Sad smile

Today is my last day @ work! Said my goodbyes to my colleagues with the cookies I made! There was practically no work today. Everyone’s not in the mood for work anyway, since it’s Merdeka (Independence) day tomorrow!

Lunch with the BF was at Meng Tuck Vegetarian Restaurant.

It’s not exactly restaurant style. But it sure serves up good vegetarian economy rice. They have lots of varieties, and it’s good to come during lunch, and after 5.30 since that’s when the food is just cooked! They have about 20 varieties, and offer brown rice (but I’m not too happy about the rice as they don’t seem brown enough to qualify for brown rice to me).

Brinjals (Most front)- It’s cookied with some kinda black bean sauce, along with peppers and beans. Yum!

Beans, peanuts, tofu (Back right) – This is home-cooked food which you can’t find outside. You definitely don’t find this often as it’s difficult to cook. Sad to say, it lacked preserved veges (choy poh) which makes the dish!

Old long beans (Back left) – Though this is super simple, it’s my favourite as it has a distinct flavour to it which attracts me. It’s the sauce i suppose.

Meng Tuck Vegetarian Health Food Center:

No. 133, Jalan SS2/6,
46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

I’ve been craving for froyo, so we headed to Tutti Frutti (though i just had froyo at coffee bean recently!)

Had the vanilla flavour-the only flavour i like. I really wish they brought in PB and cookies and cream, but i’ve yet to see them! Topped off with some Oreos (I’m not sure if they subbed it for “Stereos” to reduce costs). This cost me RM6.90!

Dinner wasn’t any cheaper, but what made it worse was that it wasn’t worth the portion!

Gramps suggested porridge for dinner, since the BF has sore throat, so we tried Geylang Lor 9 in SS2. It was recommended by Akak Carol. Gramps were eager to try frog porridge (reminds grampa of his childhood days).

But boy, was I shocked at the price. RM12 for one portion of frog..

So fine, we ordered the spring onion frog, though it was RM12. And this was what we got! Can you see how deep the pot was? The pot given was maybe 1/4 filled and covered with spring onions. I don’t even know why they bother using the pot when a plate would most likely be more suitable for that portion. And the pictures are so deceiving as they show that it’s filled to the brim. Taste-wise: it was quite alright, but the portion put me off.

SDC11697

Porridge was OK. RM3 for a portion fit for three. we ordered another one, as the two men are big eaters. If it had been brown rice porridge, i would’ve had more.

SDC11698

Onion omelette (RM8). Again, i think it’s overpriced. I could easily get something similar at RM6? It was good, no doubt.

SDC11699

Thai style tofu (RM8). It was alright. The sauce was not overly spicy. But I felt it was kind of lazy of them not to fry individual slice of tofu, but instead fry one whole tofu. I prefer if it was sliced, then fried as then, the tofu won’t “excrete” water and also it would be browned on all sides.

Would I come back? Well, if you’re a huge frog fan, why not? But not for the portion.

After dinner, me and grandma went to the night market, to have a look, we bought a couple of things, including a pack of these:

SDC11702

Sugar plums they call it. I love them because they’re so cute. I think stone fruits are in season, since peaches are in season! I want me some peaches! ARGH!

Oh, by the way, this is so awesome. I wrote a letter to the Star, regarding prices of low-fat milk, and it actually was published! I was so surprised! They altered it though, but still, it’s awesome!

Me and the BF are still awake, and i’m watching videos of cute dogs. I think I’ve said “I want” 10,395 times already, and counting!
