Old Rex Cucur Udang Cafe

old rex cucur udang cafe

This is the famous cucur udang establishment (I have been overusing
this word lately) that used to be located in the now defunct (?) Rex
Cinema. It has now moved to Rubber Road in Satok. I went there with a
couple of friends to check out the allegedly best cucur udang in
Kuching.

The stall is right in front of the cafe (it’s actually a coffee shop) – you won’t miss it. It seems to be doing brisk business.

cucur udang options

Here’s a photo of their offerings – they have a wide range of other
stuff like prawn balls, yam pastries, fishballs and all that in
addition to cucur udang. Cucur udang is the one you see at the bottom
left – it’s that deep fried round thing with whole prawns covered with
batter.

Basically, you tell the proprietors how many cucur udangs you want
and choose the other options that you like and they’ll chop it up into
bite sized pieces before deep frying the whole batch. Everything is
deep fried before it’s served.

cucur udang sauce

This is the dipping sauce – it’s made of unknown combination of
sauces (each cucur udang outlet have their own recipe) topped with
grounded peanuts. Actually “dip” is a misnomer as most people slather
the deep fried cucur udang in the sauce as opposed to dipping it. At
least, that’s what I do…

cucur udang platter

Behold our platter! This is for three people – we had 5 cucur udangs (the main feature) with a bit of everything else.

cucur udang tehcpeng

Remember to ask for Teh Si Peng here…they have a three layer
presentation too, with a twist…the sugar syrup is permeated with red
coloring, which turns the drink into a wonderful shade of tasty red
when agitated (a pretentious term for stirring ;)). It goes well with
cucur udang, the milky taste of the drink complements the deep fried
stuff perfectly.

St John's Cathedral and CU There Cafe @ Petaling Street area

It’s Sunday today and this is the first time in recent memory that
I’ve been to church. Granted, my eyes glazed over sometime during the
middle of mass, but anyway…:) I moved out of the hotel early this
morning and put my stuff at my gf’s place and now I’m updating at
Richard’s room. I’m bunking with him until the room vacancy at my gf’s
house opens up at the start of next month, about 7 odd days more.
Anyway, the mass was held at St. John Cathedral, somewhere around the
Kota Raya area as far as I could ascertain.

Well, I was with my gf, her brother (Richard) and her brother’s gf
(Alice). Mass was followed by lunch at CU There, somewhere near
Petaling Street. It was air conditioned and the interior and ambience
is interesting to say the least.

There is a wall filled with scribbles of love messages from couples
and the rest of the real estate is covered by posters of artists of all
sorts. There’s also a music area:

and the toilets are covered with jokes…

I had the prawn steak (RM 7) because I was really interested in how they could come out with a prawn steak. This is the dish:

Recombined prawn steak…that’s recombined prawn meat patties, my
friend. A steak produces expectations of a single piece of cut meat. ;)

Anyway, here’s a photo of us:

From left: Louisa (my gf), Richard (my gf’s brother and my room mate
for the next week), Alice (my gf’s brother’s gf) and Huai Bin (me).

Later, we went to Sunway Pyramid, where there was dance performances
and two highly doubious Malaysian Book of Records entries. I got
pictures of everything, but those would be up tomorrow because I’m very
tired, as can be seen by my terse sentences. :) I’ll turn in early
tonight and wake up tomorrow for a whole new effort in sending out
resumes. Later.

This will be up tomorrow.

Oh yeah, just watched on Edisi Siasat about the Africans (Nigerians?
Afica is a continent…the reporters are no better than the people
saying Asians (a diverse classification which spans from India through
Hong Kong and down to Indonesia) is the source of trouble in a lot of
Caucasian countries) who started a bit of trouble at Jalan Alor at the
hawker food center…I’m not sure when that happened but me and my
digicam missed it. :( Not that there’s anything newsworthy unless shots
were fired, but still, it would make a good update. I won’t go into the
racial vilification and distrust this produces, I’m against that of
course (the expose ends with “Be carefull of people of African
descent”), but sixthseal.com is just about personal stuff, drugs (by
veritas) and news that I happen to witness. :p

One last thing, sorry about the photos being dark…I didn’t realize
it on my monitor (with big ass gamma), only realized it here. Will take
that into consideration in the future. Here at sixthseal.com, we always
aim to please. or something. ;) Nevermind me, I’m too relaxed right now.

New Age Cafe @ Box Hill

Putting the hill in Box Hill

I’ve been keeping really weird hours lately. I woke up at 12 am
today and I still haven’t gone to sleep yet. I was finishing up my IE
stuff yesterday so I didn’t get any sleep and I went to Box Hill with
my friends to eat lunch.

This is New Age Café at Box Hill. It’s along Whitehorse Road I think. They have really good Baked Pork Chop Rice.

The portions are pretty large too. Come to think of it, I haven’t
eaten anything since then and that was around noon yesterday! Strange,
I don’t feel all that hungry. And no, I’m not tweaking. :p

I’m sleepy.
