Simple Sat Lunch for 2.....

I always love Kopitiam's food.....
but I don't like to dine in .. normally I will tah pau and bring back home.. WHY?

The famous kopitiam will be always crowded with people.. same like eating Dim Sum in IPOH..

If I were to dine in .. I will have to wait at least 10~15 mins for a place to sit..
then wait for the food ..maybe another 10~15 mins.. so at least 30 mins of waiting time ..
Furthermore the weather was so hot...... and as you know Kopitiam usually don't have AC.....

So I prefer TAH PAU ...
when my first visit to Hong Kong (12 years ago) they told me about the joke Tah Pau....
To them Tah Pau meaining .. you packed yourself when you die......
nowadays I heard a lot of hongkies using this word for takeaway..

So I just Tah Pau (takeaway) the food home ..and it takes me 10 mins....
I could eat it comfortably at home watching my favourite TVB series....
Of course with AC to cold me down...
then after that I will be zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. what a lazy day for me huh..... 


Big Pau,
Hakka Porridge,
Yong Tau Fu (Lady Finger),
Honey Roasted Chicken Drumstick + Siu Yuk rice 
Total = RM20
