Lok, Eat & Farewell

February seems to be the month of everything. As Chinese, we have the 15 days of Chinese New Year (but only few days holiday. Sigh). For the love birds out there, you have Valentine’s Day, and also the Chinese Valentine’s Day which marked on the Day 15 of Chinese New Year (also Chap Goh Mei). Also, this is the month to farewell most my friends going to and back to Australia. I have bid farewell to Yen on Monday night and the other friend, Yee Meng from Surian gang.

As tradition, we would have farewell party to get-together before any of our friends leaving to further their studies in foreign country.






And this time, our friend’s parents were generously catered a Lok-Lok van to have a Lok-Lok dinner party in the house. Yes you see it. We could full up ourselves with unlimited of Lok-Loks. This time we had the Fatman Steamboat. It was very much different from my previous experience. There were more choices and wider range of food.

Here are some pictures which I could capture. aiks… sorry, I was busy feeding my stomach. But overall, the variety available was roughly the same as those appeared in my previous lok-lok experience.







Ap giok bao. That’s what the owner of this vendor told me.






Sticks of tako which were my favourite. The tako was well-seasoned in the very Japanese style and the size of each was big too!





Brown sotong





Fresh mussels













There were also fish balls, meat balls, and some other common ingredients. But I could say that, once you ‘Lok’, you can’t stop.






Here, A wide range of sauce. How would you like to have your food taste?! It’s Up to your choices!







Additional of a little of sesame oil, an adequate amount of satay kuah, sweet sauce boost up the taste! You can add in a little of chili sauce if you like spicy (that’s what I learnt from the vendors). Try it and these do create an aromatic and delicious Lok-Lok.





Yee Meng, farewell!

Aiks… once all my friends going back to Australia, there will be lesser kaki(s) here.

Hi, I am Desmond. I am leaving a comment here because I couldn't reach you by email.

I run a foodie search site - Malaysia Most Wanted Food (http://food.malaysiamostwanted.com/) to allow easy searching of yummy food reviews and recommendations by blogger. I am wondering would you be interested to allow the site to link to (and archive) the food reviews in your blog (we shall respect the copyright of your content).

Do contact me at info [at] malaysiamostwanted (dot) com. I could provide you with more information on how this is actually done.
