Lunch With Ex-Colleagues At Sun Hup Kee Restaurant, Ipoh.

Last Thursday evening, there was a text from an ex-colleague inviting us to meet up for lunch the next day. For those who are still working, Friday is the day with longer lunch hours for us to enjoy our meal with some time for chit chatting. 

No, no, this is not the year-end lunch that we used to have before the Chinese New Year. We still have about 2 weeks to prepare for the Chinese New Year and the "closing year lunch" will be sometime within this 2 weeks. According to the Chinese calendar, we are still in the 12th month!

The venue was only decided when we were all seated in the car. After a few suggested places, we finally agreed on Sun Hup Kee Restaurant at Jalan Leong Sin Nam, Ipoh. We ordered the following dishes for lunch for 6 people.
 Deep fried Black Pomfret with Vietnamese sauce.
A very appetizing dish.
 Steamed Pork Belly with preserved veggie (mui choy).
 Tofu with minced meat & canned peanuts with steamed egg.
Chicken with ginger and sesame oil
 A combination of long beans and eggplant,
topped with fried garlic and preserved radish (choy poh)
The lunch cost approx. MYR 150, incl. rice, drinks & 6% GST.
 Chinese New Year decoration at the UO Superstore, Ipoh
 CNY decoration at the Tea Place Cafe.
Simple CNY decoration at Tea Place Cafe.

But most of all, dear brothers,

do not swear either by heaven or earth or anything else;

just say a simple yes or no so that you will not sin and be condemned for it.

(James 5:12, The Living Bible-TLB)
