Dinner With Friends At Restoran Makanan Laut Old Man, Ipoh Garden.

It was a very cool evening at about 23 deg. C. The heavy downpour had just stopped. For this particular evening our friends wanted to revisit the "Old Man's" restaurant. This is shorten name for Restoran Makanan Laut Old Man which is located along Jalan Dato Lau Pak Khuan, facing the M Roof Hotel, Ipoh Garden.

We chose a small table for 4 people on the five foot way. There is no wall fan or standing fan on the five foot way. On cool evening, it is quite comfortable on condition there is no mosquitoes but it can be very warm and uncomfortable if the weather is warm.
A combination of 4 types of vegetables stir fried with sambal belacan (spicy shrimp paste). There is cabbage, stinky beans, long beans and purple eggplant.
Steamed chicken with blended ginger.
Savoury stewed pork ribs with bean curd sheets and dried chilies in claypot. I can't remember whether there was dried cuttlefish or salted fish in it.
Total cost of dinner for 4 people - MYR 63.20
(inclusive of white rice and tea)
After dinner, we passed by this shop while walking to the car. Took a snapshot of these catchy display behind the glass panel of the optical shop.

The following photos are for joining Saturday's Critters.
Saw this dog outside a restaurant. It has a collar around the neck.
Found this fly on a shirt in a supermarket.
It also wants to enjoy the air-con.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Command those who are rich in this present world

not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth,

which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,

who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

(1 Timothy 6:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
