The 7th day of Chinese New Year is referred to as "Yan Yat" meaning everyone's birthday. My mum used to make congee with sliced fish to celebrate this special day but now that she is no longer around, we don't practice this tradition anymore.
Hubby and I was in KL town today, cos we got an appointment with the migration agent to submit our PR application. And today is also the first initial payment was made. Excited yet full of worries..but I guess wait till our PR is approved then only start worrying of starting life anew.
Since we already in town and it was almost dinnertime, we drove to Jalan Alor area to hunt for food to ease our growling tummy since we skipped lunch today. As usual, Hubby craved for Beef Noodle from Ngau Kee at Tengkat Tong Shin but I was more keen on having grilled chicken wings from Wong Ah Wah Restaurant at Jalan Imbi. Being pure gluttons, we compromised!! Beef Noodlefirst then Chicken Wings later!! Hahaha!
The unlimited pot of chilli sauce was really a welcoming sight once we were seated. Good chilli sauce does wonder to a dish.
While Hubby had Dried Lou Shue Fun, I had dried egg noodle. I love their minced meat which if not mistaken is minced pork and not beef cos i overhead the boss telling the lady at the next table. Speaking of next table, 3 ladies were having their dinner there and two of them actually doesn't take beef and was talking rather loudly their reasons for not taking beef. Hmmm...funny lor...so many other choices in that area and if you don't eat beef, then why go to a stall which specialised in beef noodle leh?
Next stop, Wong Ah Wah Restaurant at Jalan Alor which is really famous for its chicken wings! I tried their dishes once when we treated our guests from Melbourne here last year. Apart from chicken wings and dished with rice, they also offers pork dumpling (sui kow), yong tau foo, satay, grilled seafood and many many more.
The chicken wings (RM1.90 per piece) were fantastic! The succulent wings were crispy outside, juicy inside. Heavenly good!
We also ordered the Kam Heong Cockles (RM10) which came in Extra Small serving!! So small until you cannot believe it! Gravy was superb but the cockles were not fresh so we requested it to be changed, and they did, rather unwillingly though. They kept argued that it's fresh and taste like that. Duh! You think I first time eating cockles issit?????
They exchanged the cockles with Kam Heong Lala which also came in XS size. Anyway...very tasty but I still prefers cockles than lala. Sigh!
Guess what? In my microwave now, there are 5 pieces of grilled chicken wings and two big packets of mixed beef. Hubby tarbau-ed for supper as he will be staying up late for football tonite. Not that I am complaining..*wink wink*!
