Having dinner in Chai Leng park, Prai. Popiah nice, RM1.20 each
Kuey Chap, first time i have it, its noodle is of kuey tiaw texture, but thicker. not bad, worth trying.
intestine satay, don’t really like satay.
fried kuey tiaw, RM3.50
Pineapple rice, first time seeing pineapple rice like this, where the pineapple are not mixed into the rice. Rice is good, infused with some spice (and coconut milk perhaps?).
my favourite – Or Chien (oyster omelette). This one is not as good as the one in Bee Hui restaurant, Pulau Tikus(Penang), but it is good enough, especially the sticky glueey part, this big plate cost only RM6.

finger food
