Water Dogs

Remember I mentioned that economical spectacle shop in Sungai Wang? I took my mom there today with the help of the ever kind and helpful PuiSee Chu (Fb). She took me there on my first visit. Not only is Pui See so patient and understanding, she is also very good with elderly people such as my mom. Me and mom were so touched. We felt so blessed and thankful to have such a caring and genuine friend.

While waiting for the spectacles to be made, we went for a quick lunch. It was at the U-Village Restaurant (Fb) – Hong Kong Restaurant. Ordered my mom a bowl of ‘sui kow’ dumplings soup with wonton noodles. Sui Kow is literally translated as ‘water dog’ from Cantonese. I don’t know why.

Even though the ‘sui kow’ were impressively big and luscious, my mom being the typical Chinese, complained there was no pork in it. LOL. Only three prawns (shrimps) in each of the three dumplings. Me and Pu See had better luck with what we ordered though. Coming up next.

The Gold Coast Model

My former colleague and long time friend, the statuesque Simp Lee sent me a bunch of pics she took at the Avani Goldcoast Sepang, where she recently stayed and was a happy camper. Thank you, Simp. She’s regularly seen in television commercials, is also a model, a yogi, homemaker, chef and was the beautiful Mrs Asia Supreme Earth 2015. As I discussed with Penang advertising legend Kenny Song many years ago, the water on the West coast of peninsular Malaysia, be it Penang, Pangkor or Langkawi, is rarely cobalt blue unlike the oceans of the east coast islands and in Borneo. The resort provides electric golf carts to transport guests and luggage to the far flung chalets. The palm shaped and branched out chalets of the Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort was featured and can also be booked through here: http://www.mycen.my/avani-sepang-goldcoast-resort/ All pics here copyright and owned by Simp Lee.
