We arrived to a Shopping Center, which was just about Asian restaurants and shops. Most of the signs were written in some Asian language and you just have to look at the crowd to be sure you are in the right place. If they like this place, that means this is good. The guys usually eat in a Malayan restaurant, but while we were waiting for them, we found another one and once the guys arrived, we decided to try the new one. It looked good and was crowded. Good sign!
Matt & Celine are a sweet couple.
The Satay was delicious and everyone was enjoying it. Then we placed our main dish orders. I saw a big bowl of soup in several tables and was wondering about that. It was the Laksa! I have heard about this in a tv show and wanted to try it. Plus it was a bit chilly, so a spicy / hot soup sounded perfect and it so it was! I ordered the veggie Laksa and was delicious.
Well, I succeeded! Actually I cheated, since I didn't eat the noodles, but didn't want anything too fulfilling, plus carbs... I also tried a bit of the others' dishes. They all were happy to share a bit of their food, so I'd be able to try a new cuisine, awesome! Dinner was very yummy and we all were full, but Celine mentioned sweets! She's one of mine, hahaha. Yep, I was full but there's always space for something sweet and we went to the other Malayan place to get some dessert and we tried the Cassava Kuih! Very good! Sweet, but not too much, perfect choice!
The guys had to work next morning, so they left. Matt would join us to the beach tomorrow. Celine had already plans, but hopefully would meet her again. Well, I guess we'd do so. I'd be around for 1 year :P
