Happy Lunch With Ex-Colleagues At Cheong Loi Restaurant, Ipoh.

It was a Friday! Taking advantage of the long lunch hours to meet up for a lunch outing with ex-colleagues. It was quite some time since we last met. We were to gather at the office car park. I was early so I occupied myself taking some snapshots. All government departments are currently preparing for the national day celebration which falls on the 31st August.
Public Works Department with National Day banner.
Vehicles adorned with national flags on display in front of main entrance.
 Flags on the wall. 
 On the road to Cheong Loi Restaurant in Ipoh old town.
The 1st time our group had lunch here was in February, 2016. If you are interested to see what we ate for our first visit, you can click here.

85, Jalan Bijeh Timah, Ipoh.
We started with a big bowl of salted vegetable, white tofu, fish balls, pork slices, etc.
Deep Fried Black Pomfret on top of light soy sauce. 
Steamed Taro or Yam with pork belly slices.
Chicken cooked with bitter gourd slices.
Braised tofu in soy sauce with chili sauce for dipping.
Lala or clams.
Leek cooked with roast pork.
This lunch was for 6 people and the total cost of lunch was
MYR 100.00 (approx. 23.28 USD)
These photos are for show only.
We didn't order the above braised oink, oink head skin.
After lunch, we stopped to shop at one of the nearby small stalls. See the pink plastic bags. Stopped for a photo shot before walking to the car.
On the way back to the office where we parked our cars.
Great company, good food and reasonable price.

Work happily together. Don't try to act big.

Don't try to get into the good graces of important people,

but enjoy the company of ordinary folks.

And don't think you know it all!

(Romans 12:16, The Living Bible-TLB)
