Aunty Alice came from Penang to visit us. Being well known for her generosity, she brought along 5 packets of Heong Peng, 3 boxes of Tambun biscuits and 3 bottles of Ghee Hiang sesame oil, specially for us. We could not thank her more so we took her to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. Looking for a table on weekends is not an easy task as most restaurants were booked for weddings. We went from one restaurant to another, enquiring from one counter to another and lastly ended at Xiang Zi Lou Restaurant (looks more like a roadside stall) for some quality food taken in a lousy setting.
