Ch** Y**n and Ch**s, our good friends and ex-neighbours, invited us over for lunch to sample their latest offering at their Kopitiam (Traditional coffee shop), mee hailam (noodle cooked in soy and oyster sauces with prawn stock). Their most recent addition is also ayam masak merah (chicken cooked in tomato sauce) which basic recipe is wifey's! Our Sunday drive from to their abode was exceptionally smooth! We brought along kuehs from Mak Jah's (next to SPCA Ampang) and my all time favourite, sun-dried tomato loaf from the Bakery.
Upon arrival we were greeted with their ever verdant and very well-kept garden. What do you expect from two garden enthusiasts? Wifey and I both were inspired by them when we moved to our current home.
The mee hailam was gorgeous - a mixture of oyster sauce and dark soy suace in prawn broth with Sarawak black pepper poured over yellow noodle, greens, chicken strips, sliced fish cakes and sauteed prawns.
Our boys had fun playing with Tz* M*nn, R* An* and J* An*. They didn't want to go back....I hope we didn't overstay the hosts' hospitality. We made our way back when Umar cried to go home.....! Umar is a home-body you see.....and he will always be the one giving cues to dismiss our fun time.....
