Have some of you enjoy your little long weekend over Wesak Day? I did, I had a great party and great dining while I am at Penang. I had lunch with my friend to a place which I have not been since I was a kid. Yap, this shop is quite old already as when I was a kid my grandpa used to bring me here for his favourite plate of chicken rice.

Kedai Makanan & Minuman Hock Seong Choon that located at Penang Road house this famous chicken rice that is quite extra ordinary. A place used to be so famous 20 years ago and till date still standing tall on its business with their very own regular. Offering traditional Chicken Rice in another way, that Dark/Black soy sauce is one of the  main ingredient for the chicken.

 The shop is more well know for their dark chicken instead of the white ones.

Dining in here can be another experience as this is one of a few rare coffee shop that still maintain its classic dining area with wooden cubical at the side and wooden table and plastic chairs in the  middle area, along with cheque titles that remains the heritage look of it.

A normal plate of Hainanese Chicken Rice for single person comes in a side plate of chicken, a bowl of soup and I did order extra herbal egg to go on. @ RM 4-RM 10

Oily rice are used here as they cook the rice with some chicken soup to make it more fragrant. Little ginger is detected.

AS for the special homemade dark soy sauce are added ontop of the roast chicken, to make it more fragrant, not too dry and easy to eat. The taste is little sweet salty and I would prefer my side of chicken is drumstick. Love the chicken texture at that part and my friend whom usually do not eat chicken breast and he would only eat here as the sauce did tone down the hardness and make it nice to chew.

Although the famous one are the roast chicken, I like the white chicken more as the texture of the meat is smooth and cook to perfection along with the sauce added on makes it taste much better.

Herbal egg is a little disappointed as with the term Herbal Egg, there is not much taste of herbal is detected. This herbal egg is ordered separately from the coffee shop owner.

To make the chicken taste more interesting, try to pair with their very own homemade green chili sauce dressing, light spicy with sourish end and you will enjoy all 4 taste in one plate.

This place do bring back alot memories for me and if you are looking for something little different from the rest of Hainanese Chicken Rice, then its good to try it this version here.

I have been busy lately cuz it was year end and first week of they year. Well, of course I must wish every one ‘Happy New Year’. Sorry for not been updating my blog for the past weeks. Now the thing has been piling up. Please do give me some time to update on it.

Hmmm
, year 2008 had just past in the blink of eye. To me, the year had past so so fast until I just understand what my mentor and my grandpa always said. When you past 24 years old do not blink your eyes. Time flies. Previously I always said that, ‘aiya. still got time ma, after thinking back what I did on year 2008, ‘wow’ really a blink of an eye.
Year 2008 can be considered not the most fruitful or worst year for me as I only manage to achieved 35% of my own goals that I had put up on that year and by comparing backwards to the year that I had put up. well, well, who to blame? myself of course for not being hardworking enough but definitely by seeing the past 1 year I had groom myself in my personality, career life still sucks, went into a wrong company thought that it will be good and the right choice when I made it did not know that the company have alot of ‘hidden secrets’ which after I found out, I am totally disappointed.
Of course there are happy moments I had in that year, I meet a lot of new people, new friends getting to know them better, close friend that have never been close that been so closed, glad to have you guys by my side, Jakarta trip was memorable with 70’s Night on that occasion.
Talking about blog, I wanted to write a blog during my last year in uni which is during year 2006. Ended up writing 2 post. Then never continued anymore. So ended this year with starting to write a blog. Will see how far I can go. It is just for leisure, to share it with the strangers whereby a quote was told to me by my friend which it meant ‘ There are no strangers in this world, Just that friends that are not known yet’ Do not know where he got that but just well, which is pretty true.
Talking about 2009, of course new year, new resolution. The list is there, and this time is is up in my wall, to constantly remind me about what I have to archive this year. I MUST DO IT this year. No more excuses and of course, looking forward for new job, new life, new me.
To those out there, strangers, alien, people that do follow my blog(if there is any) wish you all the best for year 2009. Lets work hard together in realising our dreams. Keep your dreams alive.
