This was our UK Foodie friends having a birthday dinner to get all the family and friends together. The partner (Malaysian born) is brilliant at maintaining friends through the years by organising get togethers like this and catching up. We got parked next to the wine and the ice bucket and I did usual service as sommelier opening the bottles. Always carry a corkscrew. Food for me has become increasingly average at the Overseas over the last few visits though it clearly remains the restaurant of first choice for Chinese family celebrations. Char Siew used to be the stuff of legend; now it is all caramel and sticky gum sucker. We doggy bagged some of the veggies and prawns for home. Sang my usual Chinese Party pieces; struck awe in the assembled who could not believe a gwailo can sing Chinese songs. I am legend. Yes.
Little bit of theatre with the Kampong Rooster - these are apparently emasculated at an early age which allegedly gives their meat way more textural subtlety than their, er, jingling contemporaries. Which is completely lost on this white boy. Not sure why they made the poor chap stand to attention. Maybe makes it easier to carve off the meat.
March 21st - Taman Seputeh breakfast
One of my occasional errands is to deliver newspapers to some of Lenglui's old friends, one of whom lives in Taman Seputeh. On occasion I will stop off for some Roti Canai and a Teh Tarik at the Mamak stall to feed the soul. Is not the best, but is easy to park, get clean trays, and the greenery is pleasant. More to show overseas friends the day to day reasons why Malaysia is a brilliant place to live.

|Fluffy crispy pan bread, curry gravy, and condensed milk tea - perfecto|
