It was a hot afternoon today, but that didn’t stop me and my
2 colleagues from walking all the way from our office to the sacred food haven
of Jalan Batai. So after what seems to be an eternity of sunshine and flying
dust on the road, we reached the back row of the shophouses on Jalan Batai.
Our initial plan was to eat at the cornerlot shop at the end
of the row, but as usual it was full house. Time to demonstrate the teamwork of
the makan gang, so we stationed Kevin here while both me and Rachel walked to
Restoran Seng Lee to scout for table.
After about 7-8 minutes wait, we finally got a table, albeit
it being inside the smokey and dark restaurant.
I won’t say much about the food, cause by now most of you
would know that the food in Restoran Seng Lee is always good. Today Rachel went
for the Dry Wantan Mee (RM3.50), while I opted for one of boolicious’ favourite
here, the Curry Laksa (RM4.00).
Kevin is a fan of Rojak so he ordered a single serve of the
famous Penang Rojak (RM3.30). I’m not an expert when it comes to rojak, but
from what I heard from various sources so far, this should be one of the best
You can get this delicious Penang Rojak from an elderly couple that operates a stall on motorcycle parked right outside Restoran Seng Lee.
On the way back to the office, we walked past this weird but
striking looking fungus. Numerous of these bright orangish fungus growing on a
dead tree bark/branch. Suddenly tankiasu turns philosophical:
Life can be created with dead things. Good things can come
out of bad situations. So whosoever going through bad patch at this moment, you
can take heart!
