Too hot

It has been a while since I last ate "mixed rice" ( 杂饭 or 什饭) for lunch.

A little rice with 3 dishes - sardine, broccoli, and a stirfry-dish of ladyfingers, brinjal and long beans - MYR6.50 nett. A cold drink of coffee mixed with tea (cham) costs MYR2.40 nett so it is a total of MYR8.90 nett for lunch on a working weekday. Normally I do not order drinks for myself but I walked under the hot sun from my workplace to this eatery so I had to order a cold drink to cool myself down and to prepare myself for the 11 minutes walk back to my workplace under the same hot sun.

This is the "mixed rice" stall at New SeaView Coffee Shop at Paramount PJ.

*** I will be having a post a weekday until I have cleared my backlog of food photos.

  8. Unlike you, I eat zhap fan daily for lunch. Reason being not like I have much of a choice, that's the only decent thing to eat in the cafeteria (nutrition considered)...

  9. Yeah sometimes the hot sun is such a deterrent for venturing further for lunch. What more if there is no aircon once you reach the shop.

    PJ food is not cheap.

  10. Paramount area has lots of good eating places but the limited parking areas is scary and congested with cars all the time.
