Back for more (on Chap Goh Mei)

The children were not schooling on Chap Goh Mei so I took the time to have my new car servicing that morning after our breakfast. It was first service so it took less than an hour.

In the afternoon, we had our lunch and afternoon nap. It did felt like a relaxing Chap Goh Mei for me and some more I didn't require to cook dinner.

In the evening, we invited a friend and his family (Australian PR who are on business trip and summer holiday) to a Chinese dinner. A Chap Goh Mei dinner.

They are Malaysian (hubby is a WM while wife is from Sibu) with 3 young boys. Friendly couple they were, and we had good time talking and promoting Kuching and its places of interest to them.


We were back for more seafood in Topspot after our last dinner celebrating my parents' birthday  Yup, just over a week ago.


However this time we went to this well known and much preferred stall, no 25 Bukit Mata seafood.


No long waiting time. Very soon the food started to flow to our table one by one. And once all the dishes were out, our invited guests came and we started our dinner without delay.



Butter prawns

Boiled cockles with nice spicy chilli dipping

Belacan midin

Clam soup

Oyster pancake

Steamed seabass

Crabs stir fried with Salted egg 


And our guests? They complimented that the food was nice and fit their palate more than the other stall that they tried previously, which we did agreed. Not overloaded with MSG, that was for sure.

Wow! Cockles! Long time never eat them. Used to eat them at Newton Circle, which they call a Tourist Trap.

My Chap Goh Meh was just another normal day as I need to work, just that I managed to watch the Super Moon.

Boiled cockles. Ouish my favourite! Slurp... but nobody eats with me as both the boys and their daddy not a huge fan of it or rather are not allowed to eat it due to their allergies to seafood :(

Seafood galore. Seafood already sweet by itself. No need MSG . Why some still add ?
