The taste of the fried kuey teow was actually quite nice, especially the soggy taste of banana leaves. If I had woke up earlier to eat it, it would’ve been much better and not to be use for slalom. On the other hand, the popia kinda sucked though.

My supposed dinner came late tonight. It ended up being my supper instead. I was dead hungry when the fried rice arrived. Though I didn’t pry open it immediately because I wasn’t expecting it to be nice. I guess I was right. Despite being so hungry, I couldn’t finish it and yeah, it wasn’t nice.

I was so hungry today as it’s already was past lunch hours. I was waiting eagerly for my sister to come back with my lunch, a pack of nasi kandar, my hometown’s style. Unfortunately, they don’t have anything like “kuah campur” (mixed gravy) here. So it looked kinda plain cause it was only soaked in curry. The chicken wa acceptable, but I’d go for Saji anytime!

This was probably the best CNY snack for this year. I could eat it all day long. I didn’t really find out what it was, probably prawn or squid crackers. Anyway, the fish crackers can’t even come close.

The nasi lemak was small in size but pretty decent. The coconut fragrance was strong especially in the sambal. The banana fritters served as a good dessert as well.

... and I had a dried meat after that. Hey, it's Chinese New Year, you gotta eat some of these.

I can’t resist having the dried meat that I took home from KV. Well, it’s CNY after all.

Stopped by KTZ for a drink before heading for dinner. My stomach was still feeling full, probably numbed from all the chili.

A mediocre drink with some jelly in it. It sounded nice from the menu but wasn’t what I expected. I thought it would’ve been sweeter.

I’ve always wanted to try out the Kin Kin’s immitation chili panmee called Super Kitchen. The first outlet was opened at the opposite row of where Kin Kin was located. Every time I was there, I was reluctant to try out the fake one, fearing that I might regret it, since I’ve travelled so far. Later, I found out that Super Kitchen has quite a number of outlets throughout KV. I was glad to know that nearby my place, there’s an outlet in Kota Damansara.

So, today was my off day, me and EL went shopping. So I suggested to him to come give this immitation a try. The umbra juice was nothing to shout about. Not the best I’ve had. While the noodle. Well, the noodle was very similar in texture and taste as compared to the original one. Somehow, the chili was not as good as the original one. I suspect it was the lack of crab meat/shell in it. I was told by a friend that Kin Kin used crushed crab meat and shell in their chili, thus the unique taste and fragrance.

I would say, the clone stand out pretty close to the original one. The price was a bit higher though. Not sure if Kin Kin has raised its price. I’ve never been there for so long. I guess being a clone wasn’t that bad, especially you are innovative. They even serve extra stuff which Kin Kin doesn’t provide. Aside from that, you don’t have to look at the snobbish boss of Kin Kin and get kicked out of the shop after you’ve finished your food.
