HISTORIC BATU GAJAH & SIMPLE LUNCH @ RESTORAN MING FEONG, PUSING.

After coming out from the hospital, we got into my car and drove down the small road to make a U-turn to go back to Batu Gajah town. The place where we made the U-turn is just in front of St. Joseph Catholic church, at the end of Jalan Changkat.
I parked my car by the roadside for us to take some pictures. I have been here a few times before but never thought of taking pictures of the interesting places in Batu Gajah. So we took this opportunity to do so, not knowing when will be our next trip here. After all, the weather is cool and we have all the time to spare.
This is my friend who went with me for the hospital visitation. In her working days, she has been here many times and this is the first after so many years of absence. Something has caught her interest. She is trying to get a better view without the fence blocking her.
So, this is what my friend is trying to capture with her camera. It is a new block in the compound of St. Joseph Catholic Church.
After we passed the hospital on our left, on the same side is the Batu Gajah Podium. In front, there was a stall selling some fried snacks.
Just after the Podium, I noticed this bright golden leaves plant. It is so striking and I must take a picture of it. Can someone tell me the name of this plant?
Opposite the Podium, on our right is this majestic building.

This is the Kinta District Administrative Complex of Batu Gajah.

The government offices of Kinta District of Batu Gajah are located here.

It is beautifully painted and grand looking.

One last picture. The drizzle has started again and we both got back into our car. It was way past our lunch time and we realized that we were very hungry.
We did not know of any place in Batu Gajah to take lunch, so I drove to Pusing town. I came to this restaurant before but it is a first for my friend.
This is a very old restaurant, quite popular in Pusing. Noted for its signature braised duck dish (kow cai ngap in Cantonese).
We didn't order the braised duck because the smallest portion is half a duck. That will be too much for only the two of us.
We ordered a small plate of fried wanton. 10 pieces of fried wanton served on a big plate with a small plate of chili sauce. Very tasty and the skin very crispy.
And this, giggle...so sorry, I realized I have not taken a picture of this yet...at least still have some noodles and half a fresh prawn left. Ha ha..this is Fresh Prawns with Braised Fried Noodle (Sang Har Mun Yee Meen in Cantonese), single portion. This is also their signature dish - tasty!
This is flat rice noodle with egg gravy (wat tan hor), single portion - good!

A plate of sweet potato leaves stir-fried with garlic. Very tender, good!
Total cost of food MYR 29.40 (approx. 8.36 USD)
(incl. drinks MYR 2.00)

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth,

before the days of trouble come and

the years approach when you will say,

"I find no pleasure in them"...

(Ecclesiastes 12:1, New International Version-NIV)
