It's hot, hot, hot in Kuala Lumpur every day and there does not seem to be any rain in sight. Time to recontinue looking for things to cool down to survive this weather. Even the cats are suffering from the heat and they love to retreat into the air-conditioned room to sleep away the hot afternoons.
I often visit the Medan Selera in Petaling Jaya Old Town as it brings back nostalgic memories for me. I can still remember eating there when I was a kid as it was a favourite hangout for my dad and he used to take us to eat Thong Kee's "pai kuat wong" - super long ribs and the Nyonya tong sui and desserts was a must. Sadly both places are no longer there as Thong Kee had shifted to SS2 and subsequently to their current place in Paramount Gardens while the Nyonya desserts place has totally dissapeared.
Nowadays, my favourite hang out place is the chicken rice stall called Kie Kie - serves really reasonably priced chicken rice, only RM3.50 for a chicken leg rice. Whenever I am there, a must order used to be the ais kacang but I recently discovered the cendol in a glass (RM1.80). They pile a layer of cendol and red beans at the bottom of the glass which is topped with shaved ice. Gula melaka syrup (palm sugar) and evaporated milk is added to the shaved ice for taste. Slurp it down with a straw and you'll cool down instantly. What I love about this cendol is unlike the Indian version, their shaved ice is very fine so it's great to slurp down. The two drink stalls serve this cendol but I prefer the one at Weng Kee instead.
