Chicken Rice For Lunch At GP Food Court, Ipoh.

The weather has been very hot since the beginning of this year and many are suffering sore throat and bad cough. My friend "B" was down with a very bad sore throat and she almost lost her voice. No wonder, she had been keeping very quiet during the festive season. 
We were supposed to join a new year lunch but it didn't materialize.
 Than "B" messaged me that she would like to have lunch with me. She came to pick me from my house and we went to GP Food Court at Persiaran Sungai Pari 1, Ipoh. We sat for a while, not able to decide what to eat. When "B" saw the people at the next table eating chicken rice, she knew what she wanted to eat.
 Deep fried chicken - one whole chicken leg.
BBQ pork.
 Minced pork with sweetened preserved veggie (mui choy). 
Soup - self service. 
As I was not really hungry, I took only a quarter portion of rice (yau fun = oil rice in Cantonese). It was good to meet up after the festive holidays and enjoy a time of chit chatting over our lunch.

 "....it is a time to celebrate with a hearty meal

and to send presents to those in need,

for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

You must not be dejected and sad!"

So the people went away to eat a festive meal

and to send presents; it was a time of great and

joyful celebration because they could hear

and understand God's words.

(Nehemiah 8:10, 11, TLB)

    1. Yes, Irene. My friend ordered all meat, maybe she didn't like the veggie. If I order I will want to order one green or the veggie acar.

  12. When I get a sore throat it generally results in my voice going as well.

    1. It happened to me too. Now whenever I felt the slightest discomfort in my throat, I would quickly drink a cup of vit C (by dropping a tablet of dissolvable Vit C in a cup of water). This helps a lot and the sore throat using goes off.
