Sitting cost

One day, I arrived early for work at 7am and the office would only be opened at 9am so I had two hours to kill. I found an air-conditioned eatery serving breakfast nearby and in order to sit there for two hours I had to order some food.

I was not interested in eating nasi lemak or those ready-cooked stir fried noodles so my other options were either fish ball hor fun for MYR4.50 or maggie mee for MYR3.50 and I chose the latter. I was asked chicken or curry flavour and I decided on chicken flavour because I did not fancy eating spicy food that early in the morning.

So here's the maggie mee in chicken flavoured soup. Good to see that there was an egg and some vege which I think is cangkuk manis. I know, I know, I can cook this at home myself but then I was really paying rent for sitting there for two hours.

    1. Yes, nice. Too early so there were still vacant seats for other patrons so they did not chase me away.

  8. errr, RM3.50 not too bad lah, i think nowadays a packet of instant noodles also around RM1?? plus the veggie and egg, as well as to pay for the "chef" to cook yours, the "cleaner" to wash up, the "server" to serve you the food and lastly the rental and utilities.. most importantly, you can sit there for two hours to wait for your office to open.. think this way, actually you untung lah~~ haha!! :D

    1. Fish ball could contain lots of preservatives and the soup they put will also have msg in them so I prefer egg to fish ball.
