Thank you very much.....

... is the lady cook's tagline.

I was assigned by my lunchmate, Yan, to blog about this lady cook and her cookings. We discovered a new kopitiam for our lunch, it's Restaurant Xin Tian Tian (新天天), situated at Jalan Medan Saujana 4, Kamunting (near The Store, Kamunting).

This is the kopitiam I'm talking about. Previously, it was called 'hao peng you' (好朋友)

We go to this kopitiam quite frequently now for the.....

1. fried kuey teow

2. fried mantis prawns with rice (notice the additional fried egg? it was the add-on by the lady cook that time, because the mantis prawns were not enough, haha)

3. fried bihun

4. pork meat porridge

5. sweet and sour pork rice

6. and our ultimate favourite, fried tai lok mee (no idea what it's called in English)

*photos credit to Yan*

Now back to the blog post title.. The lady cook is a very friendly chinese aunty who greet us like nobody business everytime she sees us. She calls us 大美女 (as super pretty girl) and thank us a few times whenever we leave. haha =D

And when the food served a little longer, she would say 'thousand apology... sorry for keep you all waiting.....' =_= It made us feel like we're dining in some 5-star rated restaurant, LOL.

We love her food because they are very yummy and the food price is reasonable (between RM4-RM6), most importantly, it's near to our office. But one thing we don't like is that the kopitiam is not very clean.... Now I hope they will improve on this matter.....


  1. Hayley,
    you makes me so gian already. you must take me there one day. :)

  2. She was sincere, you are indeed a super 大美女!^^

  3. I went there before, the foods indeed yummy!!

  4. wow, the noodles looks very yummy especially that fat noodles.. and i guess partly also because of the good and friendly service of the boss?? now that is the way we should do business right?? :)

  5. Harlow 大美女... again -_- I dont know why I read you blog is always in the wrong timing.

    Now im hungry like mad!

  6. Hi Hayley, the dishes shown here looks absolutely delicious. And the aunty sure knows about how to treat customers.
    This is missing in most shops, even 5 star hotels restaurants.

    I love that 'tai lok mee'. My wife makes that sometimes.
    I remember Kamunting estate, as well a I think Green lane estate?

    Hayley, how's the restaurants up at Maxwell Hill?
    And what about that old restaurant, coffee shop at the Lake Gardens? Still there?
    Used to go there for my lunch and iced coffee back in the '70s on my way to Penang.

    As well remember on main street on way out of town, there was a big tree, next door a well known coffee shop, it had the best poh pia in town.
    People come from far to eat the poh pia.
    Love Taiping.

  7. "Thank you very much...", hahaha I remember that tagline. I still can hear her thanking us 10 meter away from the shop. She's exaggerated.

  8. Really beh tahan this aunty one, some more London Speaking one. But seriously, the food is yummy, the aunty is hilarious and warm.

  9. Wa lau that boss very sek cho : praise some more apologetic - sure this character attracts many customer (bonus point) & plus nice food = "paradise makan place"

  10. The lady cook really knows how to win your hearts. Maybe she saw you taking photos of her food... she must be thinking that you are helping her to advertise ;) But seriously, the food looks really good!

  11. The mantis prawn rice and the sweet sour pork rice looks good.

    I think great services do give extra credits to an eatery. Yesterday I went lunch with a colleague at a restaurant which is not that cheap, but the lady serving us has this face as if I owed her one billion :( Really spoil my appetite to no end.

  12. Johnnie, haha sure, come Taiping!

    Mery, Evelyn, yes they are!

    Alice Law, haha thanks =P

    SK, I agree. If the boss is friendly and nice, surely the customers would go visit again.

    Daniel, LOL. Hope you won't hate me =P

    Lee, wow you still remember Kamunting? It's developing fast now.
    Restaurant at Maxwell hill? Hmm, sorry but it's been almost 9 years since my last visit. As for the Lake Garden, we do have a few hawker center nearby, not sure is it the one you're refering?

    Yvonne, haha yes, it's difficult as we need to cross the road and at the same time, acknowledege her...

    Yan, LOL.. London speaking, surprising huh? =)

    Robinson, yea, she is able to make her customers to come back for more...

    ChloeRuoyi, haha may be!

    YT, I understand how you feel. Hmm, those should learn to ditch that attitudes away...

  13. what a nice place to have lunch with colleagues during working days, with many good choice of food plus a humble and friendly lady cook :)

  14. Ying Ying, yay, I miss her food now~
    By the way, sorry for not leaving you a comment as I am having problem posting comment in your blog =_="

  15. All the food look so nice.

  16. it's almost lunch time and i am drooling over your pics :P

  17. Barbara and Hwi Yee, haha =D

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
