Book Valley Visit

Sigh, being the "good friend" that I am, despite being fong fei kei-ed at the last minute, upon his insistence, I still made my way to klang for a quick breakfast at his newly opened bookshop and cafe.

This is the famous nasi lemak klang that was featured in his blog.

The nasi lemak was very tasty, but it the rice was a bit too wet, (I like mine dry and fluffy), and the condiments a bit oily. Then again, I guess it IS nasi lemak, so it's like eating ice cream and expecting the benefits of a salad, to expect anything else.

70% of the time that I was there, our intrepid entrepreneur was in this pose:


This fruit tea is apparently their specialty, coz I was gonna order ginseng coffee, when he vetoed my order.

Anyway, shortly after finishing my nasi lemak, I was more or less shoo-ed out, to make way for his next batch of guests... and was relegated to browsing around the bookshop. I have to say, it is chinese book heaven....not much good for an illiterate like me. They also stock an impressive variety of imported IQ enhancing games for children, which are way beyong my budget. Apparently Klang people are very generous when it comes to kid's education and welfare. (odd, I always thought they were in same league as Penangites in terms of wallet tightness).

I bought a couple of mandarin vocabulary books, for the kids, (it looks like we all hope our children will grow up and do business in China), some stationery for myself, and was on my way. Thanks Mr Kah for gracing me with your precious precious time, all of 10 minutes.

Hey FBB, I am tagging you for a meme, which is kinda like a forwarded email. So, you are supposed to write a post about "5 things most people don't know about me" and then you tag other people. Hehe. :)

snowdrop said...

heh. sorry. i get pretty riled up about pple's non-appreciative and take-things-for-granted attitude, which you see more and more of these days.

boo_licious said...

snowdrop, if you meet Jackson, you will find out he is a real sweetie but he's super busy with work all the time.

fbb - must call and make appt or can just drop in anytime to surprise him?

snowdrop said...

fatboybakes said...
