Chong Kok Kopitiam @ Klang

When I was tasked to attend Court in Klang, my first query was ‘where to have breakfast?’.

My colleague recommended me to this place by the name ‘Chong Kok Kopitiam’, which is just a stone throw away from Klang Sessions and Magistrate Court.

Speaking about the Klang Sessions and Magistrate Courts, it is located on top of a hill. Parking along the hill is limited and if you’re late, you have to park at the foothill and hike up. I was late and had to hike up the hill. I was cursing, ‘cheeebyee why did they build a Court up a hill!!!!’.

However, the Court was quite interesting. It was built in the 1960s and it doesn’t seem to have changed much from then. It was like walking into a museum. Further, the walk down the hill was really pleasant as I could see a panoramic view of Klang from the top.

Anyway, back to Chong Kok Kopitiam, I had my usual breakfast set, coffee, half boiled eggs, steamed bread and also tried out their sotong (cuttlefish) nasi lemak.

Steamed brad and nasi lemak were highly recommended by some bloggers.

Their coffee was really nice. Thick and aromatic with a fair amount of condensed milk. Stir condensed milk to set the level of sweetness.

However, their famed steamed bread was a bit overrated. It’s not soft and it tasted a bit gingerly. Pappa Rich beats them hands down.

As for their nasi lemak, it was a little bit too spicy for me. The way it was served was a little bit unhygienic as well. It had flies all over the store and the lady uses her bare hands to serve the side dishes.

Overall, if its not for the atmosphere and coffee, I would rate this place lowly. However, its a good place to have breakfast if you’re in Klang Sessions and Magistrate Courts.

Also, be careful where you park. The bloody Klang Municipal Council workers are like ninjas. They summoned my car for illegal parking without me realising it!! Fml!!

Melbourne & Adelaide, 2009 – Overview

Happy New Year peeps! To begin my first 2010 entry, I shall post about my Australia trip 😀

My 2 weeks trip to Australia was very enjoyable. The purpose of the trip was to attend Jo and Viv’s wedding in Adelaide. Since I got many friends in Melbourne, I decided to drop by Melbourne. The last time I was there was in 2002. The place changed a lot.

Flinders Street Station didn’t change one bit except for the foyer.

I stayed with weichen in Melbourne and at Viv’s place in Adelaide. Many thanks to them for their kindness especially weichen who picked me and sent me to the airport numerous times.

Many of my Malaysian friends migrated to Melbourne. Those who I hung out with in Melbourne were either my old clubbing kakis or climbing kakis.

The gang

A came a day later than me and she only spent 2 days in Melbourne. I brought her around to shop before we flew off to Adelaide for Jo & Viv’s wedding.

Adelaide, to me, is a quiet and tranquil place. The city is small compared to Melbourne and there is nothing much to see there. However, our trip to Barossa Valley was quite enjoyable. We managed to visit Jacob’s Creek and the Whispering Wall.

Jacob’s Creek

The wedding started off with a traditional ‘chip san leong’ ceremony with a little bit of Vietnamese twist (Viv is Vietnamese). Thereafter, there was a church ceremony.

Got Siew Chu!

The wedding dinner was held in a small ballroom. A and I were MCs for the night. This time round, I didn’t scream yamseng too loud until the whole floor went quiet.

A went back to KL after our Adelaide trip. I stayed back in Melbourne for another week. I managed to climb twice at Lactic Factory and also made a trip down to Fort Nepean with Gavin.

Fort Nepean!

I also managed to try out a few good restaurants and went to some places that I didn’t visit when I was in Melbourne in 2002.
