Food: Saturday

Yong pin restaurant – reasonably priced dim sum 40 plus ringgit. Nice service staff. My friend is a vegetarian so she asked what could she have. They offered the non-meat selections and a while after, one of the staff came over and told us there was something else that she could eat, on top of what they have offered earlier.

Lunch – woke up after a two hour nap. Ee Beng vegetarian at lebuh dickens but no open. Wanted to go back to the same place Yong Xin because in the vicinity but stumbled upon bee hooi kopitiam. food looks decent a little pricey 14 ringgit for char kway tiao (4 bigger salty prawn) 7rm for wantan dumplings soup. Vegetarian along Lebuh Kimberly was closing down for the day.8rm for two sets- Mee goreng and Mee fen soup.
