ramli mee rebus ( south east asian cuisine )


We wanted to go to busy Restoran Wah Pan ( Jalan Leong Sin Nam ) across the road but it was perpetually packed with no seats available so we roamed to the other side , where the corner end lot appeared slowmoving and calm, with only some tables occupied.

It looked a little like a mamak kind of place but the name says otherwise. It felt so pleasantly presentable with uniformed waiters and the cashier / drink counter deep at the back, giving the place such a spacious look . wtH ! there was even a gleaming aluminium Western Corner ( chop chop ) near the edge towards the side lane !


The unobtrusive menu board showed a range of Malaysian favourites , including nasi ayam and nasi lemak   ...with the famous boiled Malay ( or issit Singaporean / Indonesian or issit Indian ? ) noodles as the anchor tenant !


at RM3.50 an octagonal petite white / bluish bowl , the bouncy noodles with super duper fresh greens + tofu/potato cuts & fiery red toppings including 2 mini sour limes in orangish sweet spicy gravy was excellent value for money , and tasted incredibly like a good Penang prawn mee, dengan satu telor rebus lagi

At last ... a place where the usually bsg rated mediocre noodles became exemplary and is highly recommended for ultra-light eaters ( like team bsg ).

take your time

Youngsters have faint ideas about old. Especially as long ago as in 1958. But the oldsters certainly have secret thoughts how to be young ... & hip ( like those new balance shoes ya know )
and hitting 100 before 2010.

So to bridge the generation gap , the best thing was to go in-between , to bring the old to the young , or shall we say the young to the old.

Something like this , where ... in the beginning there was black coffee

with the bizarre transformation ... about complete in 2009
becoming white ( as you can see ... in the above )

as the elderly wise will say , well ...
got the right aged ambience onot ?

and mixed-up like these can onot ?
sure the underaged wannab adults can accept ah ?

guess we have to wait for the future to find out
but remember ...take your time


old town white coffee
start at Ipoh old town
then oldling across Malaysia new towns

NB: old town white coffee is a modern Malaysian restaurant chain inspired
by the nostalgic Chinese coffee shop / kopitiam era of the 1950s
and serves mainly Malaysian/Ipoh favorites such as the
"white" coffee , toasted breads , noodles & rice

and is today one of the fastest growing
food franchised chains in the country


The vibrant chain is a refreshing development in the local F & B scene
and may just be the much needed catalyst for a resurgence of
the Malaysian entrepreneurial spirit so lacking from
a nation which prides itself as a world class
gastronomical center


It has also inadvertently become a showpiece of Burmese immigrant labor
and the butt of many bad jokes about mis/under communication

... so beware when you place your orders for
that egg , that bread
& this rice

keeping it clean

Occasionally , when the fragrance is strong ...& da spirit is high ... we will curve our way in and end up in omg wats that ? !

an expensive place where people wash golden beers in public


isn't she just marvellous!

we never expected the drizzle & were already wet before she came

the 3 + 1 of us had some powerful detergents and a great chat
about the what might have beens ... & what 2moro will bring etc

remarkably ... even in this wet zone
the food ( also got one ) was kept carefully dry
& kinda sober

while the pizza was as flat as the plate it came in

still ... the quick down was clean fun & really up

hot mamak nasi kandar restaurants

Ever wondered what's the secret of the mamaks ?
Immaculate recipes ? Fantastic service ? Hardwork ? Special spices ?
Good luck ? Gomen support ? Magic ?

Ok, lets give some clues ...

Firstly , it is a Muslim eatery so the customer base includes the majority Malays. 2ndly it offers mutton & beef , 2 meats which are almost non-existent in contemporary Chinese & Indian restaurants.

3rdly even tho they are not seafood restaurants , fish , prawns , crabs and squids are readily available.

4thly it is classless as it caters to everybody meaning you and me & us ... from the office boy to the Bandaraya / MPbsgPA workers to the towkay to the tycoon to the VVIPs to the unfasting and yes ... even to the PM.

who knows ... even the vegetarians

5thly then there is the 24 jam

the colorful food looks good and appetising ... and the spicy tastes ... heavy

interestingly the prices can be very low to the very exorbitant & even sky high
and ... people keep coming back !

you can come in slippers and shorts too ...
even wigs if you like

so is it true bro ?
are those the secrets of your success ?

the oldy hill resort

Taiping is a very pleasant town.

It boasts of one of the finest parks in the country as well as an active night zoo , a boon for nocturnal animal watchers and the serial insomniacs.

Then near the award winning Lake Gardens & the Zoo there is this narrow winding road going up. A kind of unbelievable sadistic uphill trek for the strong at heart , all 13 km of it. Strangely, most of these struggling umbrella clad trekkers look old and tired , maybe they are going downhill ...

To reach the undulating playground / cafe somewhere near the peak ( 1035m ), it is best you take a bold & rugged return trip by the trusty Land Rover (LR) since it is only RM6 a person.

but you gotta hang on really tight as the powerful LR roars to life !

the sudden hairpin turns are scary ... but fun !

Feel the rushing wind !

and ... remember to hold her closer !


once on top, have a snack ... n watch the beautiful Perak coast line
take a peek
there's no casino neither a theme park here
nor any vegetable/strawberry farms
just some flowers here & there
your camera will surely love this botanical haven
just like you wish you could paraglide down to have your CKT !

yes ... it is that beautiful , n serene

People say its not easy to open a cafe , unless you are old town white coffee. Maybe making coffee in an old town is easy. Or issit ? Must it really be white ?

Also people say it it not easy to make a good assam laksa ...

this uncle tried tho to make the
best laksa in town , made at home
he said it on the table , in full colors !

we all know the result
