05.05.2011 | 簡單幸福

11年前仲返緊第一份工嘅時候, 我每朝都會去呢個經濟麵檔食咗早餐先返工.. 11年後, 機緣巧合下再次嚟到呢度, 憑著昔日線路尋找, 驚喜原來麵檔仲喺度營業.. 嗌咗我最喜愛嘅炒米粉拼碗仔糕再加糖水一碗, 正是11年前嗰一種味道!! 食落肚嘅除咗係味道之外, 就完全係幸福感覺呢樣嘢喇..

老闆依然不拘小節, 今朝仲發生件趣事.. 佢同我講:「阿仔, 米粉響度你自己筆啦!! 唔驚, 筆到你夠為止!!」.. 我當時真係碌大眼吓咗一聲, 完全唔識得俾反應.. 真係從未見過有人咁樣做生意, 不過私底下又覺得好warm好有人情味喎, 現今社會真係買少見少喇.. :)
11 years ago while still with my very first job, i used to go to this noodles stall for breakfast every morning before heading to work.. 11 years later, i was there one morning and i followed the same route i used to go there, surprisingly the stall is still operating.. i ordered my favourite fried beehoon with rice cake and a bowl of sweet soup, they tasted exactly the same old good 11 years ago!! i felt like besides the taste of food, i was also savoring the happy memories..

the stall owner is still as easy-going, and this morning something interesting happened.. he told me "boy, the beehoon is right there, just help yourself and take as much as you can afford to eat, no worries!!".. i was like having the shock of my life, and didn't know how to respond.. partly because i've never come across people who would do business this way, partly because this was so warm and heartfelt that you can rarely find from people around nowadays.. :)

  7. 找回了11年前的味道,也找回了当时候的回忆吧!
    越是不拘小节的,往往都是越得民心啊!
    生意反而会更好吧!

    ReplyDelete
  18. 我最爱炒米粉+Kg Koh辣椒酱+红豆水,整个就是家乡味!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Still have nice people out there, and you are so blessed to meet one.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's one generous business-person - a dying breed. Or maybe, looking at you, a growing boy, he felt you needed extra nutrition. Oops!

    Yeah, where is this place?

    ReplyDelete
  21. when i wassecondary i always eat economic meehoon and mee and bubur manis... now no more liao... so 怀念

    i prefer seremban de...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. 哈哈!终于看到你吃炒米粉啦!
    一定很享受了。
    怎么隔了 11 年才去?幸好还有开呢!
    可以吃到以前的味道是很奇妙的幸福啊!
    现在人做生意哪有那么客气的,
    以前的人比较简单吧!

    给你弄到等下午餐要去大树下吃炒米粉、糖水了! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  24. boy?? *giggle*

    Well, not only the stall owner is generous with his food, he's also good in his words. 11 years ago and now, still a boy =p

    Eh, tell me the stall la, I also wanna go there.... so long nobody call me "ah mui" already. Everyone calls me aunty, ceh!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What is rice cake Ah Boy *laughing at Yvonne's comment haha*?

    ReplyDelete
  26. The bozz thinks you are a boy and how much can a boy eat, so help yourself or because of your 11 long loyal years its a bonus for Ah Boy haha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sad that people always take advantage of nice people like that though... Many do not appreciate the goodness that they see and would grab the chance to exploit the opportunity - the Asian Kiasu Syndrome...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hard to find people like that. I think may be he just want to introduce his daughter to you...hehehe!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Huh? The stall owner call you "Boy"?!!! Sure or not? Hehe

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wah! So nice! Take as much as you want! : )

    ReplyDelete
  31. So 11 years ago and now, still the same? Did the owner remember you?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Must be the owner's sincere way of doing business that keeps it going on and on even after 11 years! Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate restaurants nowadays where initially, the food is nice and then a few months later, the quality deteriorates. Hard to find one that maintain its quality after a few years, don't even talk about 11 years!

    ReplyDelete
  34. normally my breakfast is milo+biscuit
    :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. 最簡單最基本嘅就係最考工夫; 就好似一檔煮炒要知道好唔好食,叫碟炒飯嚟食就知龍與鳳!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Some business people have a heart of gold :) Rare these days though.

    I have been enjoying Soong Kee's beef ball noodles since I was a child. Another one is the Jalan Imbi flat rice noodles with slices of beef with ginger and spring onions. I have been eating that since I was a child.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's great to eat in this kinda of stall. With a boss like that, no doubt their business still going on till now. He really care his customers unlike some high class restaurant who care about making money out of us =_=". Customer service is really important :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like simple food just like that. The stall owner could be remembered you a rookie 11 years ago & glad to see u again :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. i like to eat fried beehoon and sweet soup together, especially for breakfast!! they are simple yet very delicious!! yum yum..

    ReplyDelete
  40. the boss is so kind to offer you to have as much as you want!! wow, i'm impressed as this is really very rare that a businessman will not squeeze for his profit to the max!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. i totally can get what you mean.. it's something you have 11 years ago foung back, and surely brings back a lot of good memories back then to you.. :)

  42. @ 穷光蛋市长:
    其實炒米粉本小利大囉, 一包米粉也不用兩塊錢不過一碟米粉已經可以賣到兩塊錢了..

    @ 追梦者:
    很少?? 我說簡直是沒有聽說有人會這樣做生意吧?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ lina:
    yeah, i was shocked when he told me to take as much as i want.. it was really good because it makes me remember how i used to go to work 11 years ago while i was so very very young thenm, hahahaha :D

    @ Alice Law:
    errr, no lah, i don't think so, cos that was just the 2nd time i went there after 11 years.. don't think he remembers me at all leh, and furthermore i didn't do any good to him woh~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Small Kucing:
    haha, if 11 years ago i am a regular but not now since that was only the 2nd time i buy breakfast from him..

    @ bluecloud:
    你完全了解我要表達的, 是11年前那個味道, 也令我回憶起11年前還是黃毛丫頭的那個年代, 哈哈!! 對, 我看著老闆深得顧客們的擁戴哦..

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ Danny:
    hmmmm, true also, nowadays seldom see people selling this kind of economy fried beehoon.. i'm lucky because there's just one shop outside my house selling all these noodles and "tong shui"..

    @ Medie007:
    errr, it's in a small lane nearby SEGi College in KL, somewhere between Masjid Jamek and Menara Maybank..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ 发白日梦^^:
    我看他和其他熟客閑聊的時候, 可以感覺到他們不拘小節, 所以深得擁戴.. 我想他應該沒有認得我吧, 11年後才那麼第二次光顧他.. :D

    @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    yeah, i was so thrilled when i found out the stall is still there, in fact all other stalls in that small lane are still there.. yeah, i just love all this simple breakfast, very nice.. err, don't think he still remembers me lah..

    ReplyDelete
  47. @ wenn:
    errr, no lah, i'm not planning for a second helping, other customers are watching..

    @ venus:
    其實我覺得炒米粉是很受歡迎的一門生意哦, 很多人早餐都愛吃這個哩.. 在Masjid Jamek和Menara Maybank路段中間, SEGi College斜對面的一個小巷, 哈哈, 想象到嗎??

    ReplyDelete
  48. @ bluedreamer27:
    hmmm, i guess there's no shop that will be doing this unless it's buffet style eat all you can, haha!! hmmm, i don't think he remembers me because that was only the 2nd time after 11 years.. i think maybe he just do this to customers when he's busy.. :)

    @ imyuyu:
    炒米粉+糖水就是我的最愛, 炒米粉可以是很齋只有豆芽那種, 簡直就是最簡單的幸福囉.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. @ Sheoh Yan:

    ReplyDelete
  50. @ Kit Yoke:

    @ Yvonne:
    hahahaha, i think if you go there to buy he will also call you "girl" one lor.. just his way to address people mah, like that the customer will be happier instead of calling them auntie uncle right?? hahahaha.. errr, hard to describe the exact location, it's a stall in a small lane opposite SEGi College in KL, between Masjid Jamek Station and Menara Maybank..

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ Bananazஇ:
    rice cake also you don't know meh ah boy, hahaha!! i think you call it "chwee kuih" or "woon chai gou", that's the one in the photo lor.. errr, not 11 continuous years, but it's 11 years later i found him..

    @ suituapui:
    hey, i didn't take more than the usual portion though he allows me to do that.. i think it's just not right, furthermore there are other customers watching too..

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ Wai Kitt:
    hahahaha, i really have no idea what is his motive behind huh, but then he i never see his daughter around there for all the time i am there at the stall..

    @ foongpc:
    very sure, because that's just the way he say "how may i help you sir", hahaha!! if you go there, i'm sure you'll be address boy also.. hmmm, don't think he remembers me lah, afterall it's 11 years apart and that's only the 2nd time i buy breakfast from him after such a long absense.. oh yeah, it's really nice of him to have such flexibility right?? really never seen one who will do business like that..

    ReplyDelete
  54. @ Wois:
    hmmm, actually my favourite breakfast besides continental style with all the sausage ham egg etc, will be fried beehoon and tong shui already..

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    有道理, 最簡單最基本就係最原汁原味, 最容易試探出工夫.. 所以經濟米粉is always my favourite..

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ Mei Teng:
    it's really rare he offered me to take as much as i can eat, wow, that's really pampering me, haha!! oh, you always go for Soong Kee beef ball noodles?? i started to frequent only during my college time, where i have to change bus around that area while i go to class..

    @ Monk:
    yeah, it's really a happy news when i found it still exists after 11 years and the food still taste the same old good.. yeah, the boss is really a nice and easy going person, and i can see how the regulars are mixing well with him..

    ReplyDelete
  56. @ Dora:
    simple food is always the cosiest food, and fried beehoon and tong shui is sure my favourite combination.. hmmm, don't think he still remembers me, as that was just only the 2nd time i was there after 11 years.. :)

    @ victor:
    yeah, that is also my favourite, simple but truely delicious especially for a breakfast that would make my day.. yeah, he is really a nice person and i can see that from his interaction with his regulars, really rare to have found somebody like him now..

    ReplyDelete

  75. I also love to eat Bihun and my current favourite is Qyster Mee Suar which is sold by the Taiwan cafes! So yummy!

  76. Your loyal patronage to the stall for 11 YEARS made me ponder on myself! No, I don't have any shop that I would eat so often for even 1 year. You are weird Thambee dei !!
