Breakfast In Gopeng & Fences From Kampar.

Two Mondays ago, hubby had an appointment in Kampar. Initially, I didn't intend to go with him but decided on the night before to go with him for the drive. Since we didn't go for the morning walk, I slept a little longer. After I have watered my plants, we started on our drive to Gopeng. We were looking forward to have our breakfast in Gopeng.
 This is the 2nd time we were here for the Gopeng's Lai Fun noodle in Taman Gopeng Jaya food court.
 This was our breakfast for hubby and I. We both agreed that we much prefer the one in the Kopisan village,
 After breakfast, we drove to Kampar's land office for hubby's appointment.
Can you see the chain link fencing (above) behind the sheltered carpark?
 While waiting for hubby at the car park, I took this snapshot of the fencing.
After Kampar, we made a short stop at the RTC Gopeng. There was a farmers' market.
 We took a walk to look at the products on sale and I saw these pretty little white flowers. I was tempted to buy a lime tree but didn't.
 We came upon this stall selling Dodol. Dodol is a sticky, very sweet candy made from coconut milk, sugar and rice flour. It takes many hours to cook and with constant stirring.
 Someone has invented a machine to take over the stirring. As the dough gets thicker, it gets harder to stir.
We went to my former office to collect something from an ex-colleague.
Then it was back to home, sweet home.

Linking to Good Fences.

You have seen me tossing and turning through the night.

You have collected all my tears and preserved them in your bottle!

You have recorded every one in your book.

(Psalm 56:8, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. We like to eat dodol but now have cut down because of the sugar content.

    1. Probably because of the design and the windows. This photo doesn't shows the roof.

  9. Sounds like your breakfast wasn't the best. I'm guessing you won't go there again. It did look good though.

    I'd try the candy, but you're right we don't do much sugar here either.

    Have a fabulous day, Nancy. ☺

  16. I must say the restaurant puts out quite the spread of food.
    I like the fence shot you took at the car park, it's a pretty fence.
    Also the flowers were lovely.
    The candy sounded different.
