All by myself

When I worked in bank, I used to eat alone. I did not have privilege of going out for lunch with colleagues back then since everyone was busy and bank required few staff to be on duty during lunch time. So we took turn to have lunch.

I would had my lunch outside all by myself or brought lunch from home back then. Since then I seldom eat by myself outside. 

Last week on one of the weekday, I were super hungry since I had little for breakfast. So I decided to drop by this restaurant nearby for a quick lunch and takeaway. It has been a while since we have dinner here. Hubby complained its quality has dropped and food not so great sometimes. I thought the food is alright but nothing great though.

So as usual they have their chap fan section and I went to check out the dishes. Suited me well so I had my plate of chap fan. Self-service where we take our own dishes and I ended with these 3 dishes.


Bittergourd with black beans, stir fried pork belly in spicy soy sauce and soft beancurd. RM5 for my lunch. And I did not order any drink that day since they gave me a bowl of soup.


A vegetable soup. I did find the waitress that served me that day was generous with the soup. She gave me a bowl full with carrots, winter gourd and beancurds.

And they had kacangma that morning, so I bought RM4 of the kacangma (motherwort chicken) home for dinner later that day. 


After my lunch, it was time to pick the youngest from kindergarden and went on with my usual busy schedule for the rest of the day.

I have been getting used to going out alone to eat. At one time, I felt awkward.

I sometimes will crave for chap fun, and will take more dishes, just little bit of rice will do.

My sister also worked in banks before and yes you are right they need to turn turns to go for lunch

They are so generous with the ingredients of the soup, the chap fan looks good with the dishes too

Last time I felt awkward to eat alone outside, but now I am used to it and feels comfortable sometimes to eat alone

Arghh ...! I seriously need to hunt down 'kacangma' and soon. I am dying to try it.

I enjoy eating alone as much as eating with people. But eating alone invites strangers too .. that, I don't enjoy! :D
