It was the election day (19 November). Hubby and I was up very early. Before 5am!! And one neighbour bought a rooster not long ago and that rooster has been crowing since his arrival to the neighbourhood. Somehow the rooster crowed anytime of the day, even during the wee hour at night.
Anyway, I don't need the rooster to wake me up. My man will do. Once he was awake and couldn't sleep, I knew because I was a light sleeper. He would make sounds and that would wake me up.
Supposed to go for a morning walk that morning but somehow my man wanted to go to wet market. Initially Kenyalang but we decided to go to 3rd Mile wet market instead. Nearer.
So, it was slightly after 5am when we reached the 3rd Mile. But there was buzz around the market and surrounding shops. Not big crowd but there was early birds buying vegetables and stuff like us.
After done with our shopping, we walked to a shop that near the market, named Mei Hao Cafe. Almost full house, with mostly elderlies. One table with elderly men were talking about buying numbers. Guess they were trying their luck on winning some lotteries on election day!! Lol. We were able to get a table and our order came pretty swiftly after we ordered our drink.
kolo mee RM4
The kolo mee with char siew oil was only RM4!! Big portion as well and I was having hard to digest such big breakfast early in the morning. Our drink (1 big glass and 1 small glass of teh o) was RM3. Now that was cheap!!
The kolo mee was nice, we both agreed. We sure enjoyed our breakfast that morning. After we were done, we walked back to the same route but stopped at the corner shop to get something. Be patient, I will come to that.
We also made a stop by the wet market and get these curry puff (RM3) and lemang (RM5) from a Malay aunt before went to our car and drove home.
Curry puff and lemang
Ok, this was what we bought from the corner shop!! A roast stall right in front of that coffee shop and we stopped the pork trotter looked good. It was like fried trotter but it was more of braised pork trotter. Something like hong sau rou (red braised meat).
Pork trotter RM50
And it came with generous pack of gravy!! I didn't pour the gravy onto the trotter as worry the kids wouldn't like it. So, whoever wanted the gravy, can just spooned it into the meat. We enjoyed it for our lunch and dinner that day.
