On Saturday night, we went to Sg Chua to eat ‘latt thong’ for dinner. It’s a kind of spicy soup (a lot of ginger and pepper) which is a specialty in Kajang (apart from satay). We ordered the soup with ‘chue chap’ (pig’s internal organs). It's different from normal soup coz it's really spicy and it stimulates your taste buds (very 'chi kek'). It’s really nice to drink when it’s hot. Really wakes you up. When it’s cooled, I find it a bit too salty.
~ 'latt thong' ~Another dish that we always order when we go for ‘latt thong’ is ‘fa tiew theen kai’ (frogs in Chinese wine). It’s very aromatic and goes well with rice. We just love this dish. We also ordered cabbage with dried shrimps and claypot tofu. Overall, a nice and tasty meal, as always, when we have the soup and frogs. :)
~ 'fa tiew theen kai' ~The seller was previously from a shop in Bukit Mewah (Phase 7) but they only operated in the day time. After they moved to Sg Chua, they operate at night as well. Their shop is just next to the famous ‘latt thong’ shop (I think it’s called Siew Kah, or something like that). Famous coz it was featured in the newspapers. But we still prefer this shop coz we’re loyal customers. hahaha Actually, we’ve tried the famous shop before but it was nothing too fantastic. So we just stick to the one we normally patronise.
At night, I couldn’t sleep. Although my sore throat was getting worse, I just couldn’t fall asleep. What a torture. I suspect it was the chinese tea I drank during dinner. I experience insomnia once in awhile after drinking tea. And it chose the wrong night to strike. Sigh...
On Sunday, after a late breakfast of ‘pan meen’, CB and I went to make new pair of spectacles. XY went into the room with me when the optometrist checked my eyes. So I was saying the alphabets and numbers when the guy pointed to the screen. Oh, they now have pictures too (horse, flower, butterfly, etc). This is the first time I see they use pictures during the eye check. Later when we were at home, XY asked me a funny question.
XY : Mummy, why did Uncle teach you ABC?
Me : Huh? When?
XY : He was pointing to the alphabets...
Me : Oh...
So I explained to her that’s how we get our eyes checked. Come to think of it, it does look like he’s teaching the alphabets... like the teacher pointing to a letter and the student reading it out loud. hehehe
With so many sick people at home, we had porridge with eggs and vegetable for dinner. Plain, but we're not complaining. There goes my plan for crabs. Next weekend, maybe?
