This posting should be made on Oct 2009 but somehow it got lost in transition.
Quan An Ngon is very popular among the tourists and that’s how I get to know this restaurant as well. You can see people streaming in and out of the restaurant at peak hours. It’s a good place for you to sample some of Vietnamese local dishes. The pricing is slightly above average and the food tastes just fine only.
No no no, Wendy is not a food. She flies down 300km to KL to pay a visit last weekend. It was kinda a food hunting trip too for us over the weekend. We went to Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh at Sungai Way (SS3). The tu kar chor is very good as claimed by Wendy but I’ve never been a big fan of this dish lah. As this takes a lot of time to prepare (probably), this dish is only served during Saturday and Sunday.

The bak kut teh on the other hand tastes just alright to me. Maybe it’s the lack of pork ball and there wasn’t enough tau kee in it that make me feel not too satisfied. Anyway, it was a good meal and will definitely go there again for another try next time!
Later at night, we went to Duck King (KL branch) for dinner. The ambiance and settings there are very good as it is a high-class Chinese restaurant. It is situated in a office tower I suppose situated very near to the Petronas Twin Towers (same road with Zouk). The foods are really so-so and will not bother to go there again as a matter of fact unless needed to.
Enjoy the photos folks!
PS: I washed my pendrive in the washing machine on Wednesday. I broke my badminton racket on Thursday which I have only used for 2 weeks and that costed me RM219. I sped the way to the airport on Friday so I’m not sure if I’ll be getting speeding ticket or not later on. On Saturday, I stopped illegally under the suspension bridge wanting to turn to Sunway Pyramid area coming from Kelana Jaya direction, and, of course, it cost me dearly too. Definitely a memorable week but of course through the pain, there’s gain. Take care folks!
Try not to speed, break the rule, wash your pen-drive and handle your racket properly too.
As you can see from the poster advertising this particular dish, the shrimp looks very much larger. It looks as big as the drumstick behind it or maybe even larger. The fried shrimp in the most foreground appears to be half-cut so the actual size might be even longer!
Now, let’s take a look on the dish we personally ordered below. There’s two conclusions we can make by comparing the poster and the photo below.
It’s either the drumstick on the poster is ridiculously small or the shrimp given is (again, ridiculously) too small.
Is the poster lying then?
By shifting the perspective a little big to the top. The shrimp now looks a little big longer and not too shabby compared with the drumstick. But in actual fact, it’s still as short as it is.
KFC is god almighty
No one to be blamed here, it’s a photography technique cheat to manipulate the perspective and sizes on its subjects. The marketing department is just being a bit creative about presentation here, that’s all.
Just don’t freak out when you get your order of KFC Shrimp Stix Combo and looking at those pathetically small shrimps with your mouth wide open next time. It’s humiliating. I did it.
Let’s start with a video instead. Let the video do the talking and introduction!
Foods there are pretty good I must say. Having ordered the minced beef rice, steamboat and eggs as shown above costs us about RM 35. Definitely will visit this place again in the future. I don’t do too much of food blogging. So, let’s leave it to the expert here.
