  2. That is cheap! I wouldn't mind going for that...especially with our ever weakening ringgit and the dismal shape our economy is in at the moment. :(

  3. Mun, it is very affordable. And the dishes look very delicious and green veg very fresh. I like economy rice because I can pick and choose what I want to eat.
