Brunch With Old Friends At Kafe Ray Of Hope, Bercham, Ipoh.

This morning I had brunch with 2 of my very old friends. I have known both of my friends for many years, about 42 to 44 years of friendship. If I am not mistaken, the last time we met was about a year ago. Since the 3 of us are now retirees, hopefully from now onward we will get to meet more often.

We met at one of the friend's house and we all got into my car. Someone who knows the way directed us to Kafe Ray of Hope in Bercham. This is our first visit. I have been wanting to visit but only got the opportunity to do so today.
Pandan Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang @ RM 11.00
Both my friends ordered this dish which was on the "Today's Special". When it was brought to our table, we could smell the nice aroma of the pandan rice.
Chicken Chop Rice/Fries @ RM 14.00
Finally, I decided to try this dish. There is a choice for rice or fries and I chose fries.
Freshly baked Cream Puffs.
We ordered 3 cream puffs to try. Good because the cream was not very sweet.
3 cups of Hot Honey Lemon @ RM 5.00 each.

Off Day - Sundays.
Direction to Kafe Ray of Hope for those who are interested.

Instead, we will lovingly follow the truth at all times -

speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly -

and so become more and more in every way like Christ

who is the Head of his body, the Church.

Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly,

and each part in its own special way helps the other parts,

so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

(Ephesians 4:15-16, The Living Bible-TLB)

  18. Ray Of Hope is doing a wonderful thing! Giving people back their independence and self respect. Wow, the cream puffs look delicious! Do your friends live nearby? Maybe not, that is why you do not get to see each other much.
