Siamese Laksa & Herbal Chicken Soup Noodle

We were out of the house by 7:00am for our morning walk.

Morning sky at 7:05
After more than a week of hot and humid weather, we finally had rain for 2 days and the weather is now much cooler.

We drove to Ipoh Garden for breakfast but found the coffee shop closed after the week long holiday. Since we have parked the car, we went to the opposite coffee shop for our breakfast.
I didn't know what I wanted to eat. I looked around and saw a stall selling Siamese Laksa. I haven't eaten Siamese Laksa for a long time, so I ordered a plate.
This was a bit different from what I had before because it has shredded chicken meat. Tastewise was alright. I finished the whole plate.
Hubby ordered a cup of hot coffee and a bowl of herbal chicken soup noodle. No complain about the food. The coffee here is RM2.40, which is 20 cents more than most places. Taste wise, the coffee here lose to those cheaper ones.
Hubby enjoyed his breakfast. The soup is tasty.
I was drawn to another stall and came back with the above items. 2 pieces of tapioca cake and 2 pieces of yam bean dumplings (chai kuih).
How many of you can remember these biscuits? We used to call these "belly button or navel" biscuits. We love to eat these when we were kids. I saw these in the biscuit tin when I stopped to buy some biscuits at the roadside stall.
As a kid, I used to bite off the hard coloured sweet icing and munched on the biscuit after I ate the sweet icing.

Before anything else existed, there was Christ, with God.
He has always been alive and is himself God.
He created everything there is - nothing exists that he didn't make.
Eternal life is in him, and this life gives light to all mankind.
His life is the light that shines through the darkness -
and the darkness can never extinguish it.
(John 1:1-5, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. Siamese laksa? Looks like Penang asam laksa to me. Guess you people up north can't run away from the Thai influence in some of your dishes. I love Thai! Herbal chicken soup sound nice! I would love that!

  10. I will eat a bit from both Siamese Laksa and Herbal Chicken Soup Noodle. Yes, I remember this biscuit. As a child, I used to just eat the biscuit and throw away the sugar icing top because I was told sugar is bad. I guess you didn't buy these icing top biscuits, right?
