Hum Choy Tofu Soup

Pui See made a good menu decision with Hum Choy (Cantonese) or Kiam Chye (Hokkien) Soup with Tofu (咸菜豆腐汤). Can't remember what it is labelled as in the menu. The main vegetable is salted, preserved, or pickled mustard greens.

It is a traditional Chinese soup and an assortment of ingredients were boiled together. It included pork, tomatoes, carrots and onions. The tomatoes enhance the already sourish taste. T̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶h̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶p̶l̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶r̶i̶c̶e̶.̶

Remember I mentioned that economical spectacle shop in Sungai Wang? I took my mom there today with the help of the ever kind and helpful PuiSee Chu (Fb). She took me there on my first visit. Not only is Pui See so patient and understanding, she is also very good with elderly people such as my mom. Me and mom were so touched. We felt so blessed and thankful to have such a caring and genuine friend.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

Hokkaido Cheese Tart

I was in Sungai Wang Plaza the other day. PuiSee Chu took me to Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts. I was excited at first. I have not tried them before, knowing it is a mega hipster rage even without duck egg yolk in it. I first saw them in a Ramadan bazaar in Singapore last year. Pui See knows her way around Sungai Wang Plaza. She knows the outlets, the corridors, the pink ladies parking and the lift location. Which was a good thing as we found our way around rapidly. I never understood the layout of this old and giant mall.

Love At First Sight

I saw a random post on Malay friend Ku Jie about a shop in Sungei Wang. I like reading Ku Jie's posts, all along, as she is an animal lover and cat rescuer herself.

This time she posted about taking her daughter to an optometrist shop in Sg Wang. I messaged her and she gave me the address and the Sungai Wang floor plan without hesitation. Love at first sight on her readiness to share. Thank you, sis. Apparently, the shop is all the rage and it went viral in Malay Facebook circles.How come? We non-Malays know nothing about Chinese shops in Chinese Central lah.

As a kid, I have only tried the rinks in Sungai Wang Plaza and at Asiajaya mall. Many younger people only know of the one in Sunway Pyramid nowadays.

The Sungai Wang and Asiajaya rinks were like cold meat storage rooms. Completely sealed from outside, they were cold as winter inside. That attracted people, I suppose. The massive refrigeration costs may have made them broke though. I wonder if Asiajaya mall still exists.
