Motormouth From Ipoh

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Good Malay Food ... FOC?!

Yeah, you read that right. 6 meals a day provided, as usual. Highly suspicious that the government has a hidden agenda of sinister nature, intending to fatten all the civil servants, probably in an attempt to make human foei gras out of us. (In case of doubts, read HERE).



Juicy (don't judge a book, or in this case, a chick by its appearance!) & marinated, deep-fried goodness. No dippings required ...


Amazing daging masak merah (beef in sweet and spicy sauce)

Worth mentioning here include the yummy fried chicken, and the marinated beef in sweet/sour/spicy gravy, aka a darker version of Daging Masak Merah. Me and KYT had seconds, and many others as well. Oh, and the kerabu mango kicked major a$$ too, creating a balanced flavour of spiciness, and just right sourness. Salivate, baby ... =)

Deep-fried squids - sadly, not so crispy. Forgettable ...

~~ Tea Break Special ~~

For something completely out of the book, the management served DURIANS (!!!) and accompaniments of pulut (glutinous rice), roti jala, and kuah durian (a type of sweet soup made from concoction of durian flesh and coconut milk).



The moment I got to snap a pic of the insides, the fleshy bits have been stolen ... =(


The sides of pulut, roti jala and kuah durian at the background ...

Some hits and misses with regards to the king of fruits. Kampung Gajah nearby is famous for its durians after all. But all of us were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the dining hall for tea break, but instead served durians and such. Clever marketing ploy? ;)


In a matter of minutes, our group (yup, we were divided into groups, not unlike kindergarten kids ... hehe), the famished ones, completely devoured the fruits and left a trail of terror (refer pic above) Muahaha .... ^@^

So there, was the journey worthwhile? We learnt the right way to walk the walk, and talk the talk, as well as equipped ourselves with various motivational skills. To top it all off, our team spirit was blazing HOT !!! And we get to know a lot of other colleagues from all over Perak. To me, the workshop was a success, and I certainly won't mind attending more of these! =)
