[诗巫景Ho-Liak] の Jing Cafe @ Jalan Kai Peng

趁着周日早上,本来想到联桥茶室吃好吃的牛肉面,结果好失望的说竟然没开!!

好不甘心。。。 带着失望的心情在这一带兜了兜圈,看见了这间Jing Cafe,让我想起有挺多人在“非死不可”里share了这间咖啡店。所以就停下来,决定在这里找吃!
一踏入这间店,东张西望了下,只看到两个马来摊子明确的写明菜单。还有一个摊子的橱子是空着的,橱子的玻璃上贴了一排的菜单,有炒煮啦、铁板啦。。。 一位工作人员跟我说“这个、这个、这个...... 是比较多人点的”,其实我也没听进去。不过想到FB里好像有人share了铁板面之类的食物,所以好吧。。。 我就来一个铁板粿条试试看!
在等着食物出来之前,趁着没事做之际,扫描了咖啡店一周,结果发现有个角落有非常特别的布置摆设,便把它拍了下来。
等了好一会儿,终于轮到我的铁板粿条上桌。特别的是,铁板粿条的汤汁是放在另一个碗中,当咖啡店员工端出来是,在顾客面前当场把汤汁倒入灼热的铁板盘中,汤汁遇到高温顿时蒸发,白烟从盘中冒了出来,“吱吱”作响!
至于味道,有点像铁板茄汁粿条,但甜味重、没酸味,不过仔细的吃了一下,其实它带点辣,这是我个人喜欢的一点。还有一点就是生蛋敲在灼热的盘中,再加上淋上去的汤汁,蛋的底面被煎得脆脆的,但没有粘盘地,好像煎蛋一样,这点我个人喜欢!这盘铁板粿条价钱是RM 5。
吃炒煮我最爱有cili potong和黑酱油的配搭,所以跟工作人员讨了一盘,不懂是不是生意太好,员工忙不过来,所以暂时性失忆,到我把桌上的粿条吃完了cili potong还没出来,算了吧~!

吃着吃着,在观察中发现其实这里是有两个华人摊位卖着不一样的食物,一个是“菜馆”、还有一个摊位没摆出来,头手们都是在厨房里准备食物,只有那些熟客懂得走入厨房向另一个摊位的老板order食物。我吃的一盘应该是咖啡店菜馆的。
看着另一个摊位的老板忙着端出一盘一盘热腾腾的食物,也是放在铁板上,看起来卖相很吸引人、好像很好吃,便kepo的问了那位老板那盘是什么名堂,老板说是铁板干盘!看来我可能走宝了!好吧。。 如果有下次有机会再来这里找吃,至少我懂怎么order、要order什么了!
Jing Cafe 位于Jalan Tunku Osman 大强百货后面的一排店 (Jalan Kai Peng),面向D-tech电脑店和Skynet货运公司。
咖啡店的服务有待改进,可能泡水人手不足,所以我发现很多顾客等了有点久,纷纷都到老板娘那边询问是否忘了泡他们的茶,老板娘只用“你要等一下,还有很多顾客”类似的答复来打发。

6th Mural - A Cooking Scene of The Most Authentic Diang Miang Ngu @ The Little Alleyway


Read an online article saying that this is the 7th official mural commissioned by Sibu Municipal Council (SMC), but as far as my calculation is concerned... this should be the 6th. Can't find any reliable information about the 6th mural, so I'll follow my own tracking..


This 6th mural is about Kiu Chiong Loi who is operating Diang Miang Ngu's stall at the little alleyway near Blacksmith Road for more than half a century.


Chop Hing Huong is the name of the stall and the mural is at the same alleyway with just few steps away from it. To know more about Chop Hing Huong and Diang Miang Ngu, you can read my previous post about it.


The artist who produced this drawing is Branden Tiong, a renowned Sibu videographer cum photographer. He finished the artwork around February this year.


This mural shared the same problem as the previous one where the alleyway become motorcycles parking area during day time thus it's hard to take a clear shot of this mural.


At this moment of writing, this bowl of Diang Miang Ngu priced at RM 4/bowl. In earlier days, the same serving can cost as cheap as less than a Ringgit to two.


This is a comparison of the real life photo with the wall painting.

5th Mural - 70's Sibu Bus Station & The Green-White Bus


The 5th mural commissioned by Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) has been drawn on the wall at an alleyway at Blacksmith Road during December last year and this time it is titled an old-school bus.


Some may wonder the significance of an old-school bus at such venue? Those knew the history of Sibu should know the reason.

[Photo taken from the Internet showing the current Butterfly Garden which was the venue of Sibu bus station in 70s]

The green-white old school bus has significant meaning at this area as the current "Butterfly Garden" which is linked to Blacksmith Road through this alleyway was once the venue of Sibu bus station during 70s. At that time, these type of buses were one of the main public transport in town.


Butterfly Garden is the venue of current night market a.k.a. pasar malam and it is a parking space during day time.


This mural was drawn by a popular Sibu figure, Edmund Wong, who is a performer as well as a famous bestman for wedding.


There is an issue having mural at this alleyway as at day time, this place has become a motorcycles parking area which blocking the view of the mural.


If that's the case then there is no point of having mural which the main objective is to boost Sibu tourism especially for Sibu Visit Year 2017.


Visitors will not be able to snap a clean shot with the mural when there are other objects blocking the view which may cause great disappointment for the visitors.

Shell V-Power LEGO Model - Fiorano Shell Station

This is the 2nd week's release of Shell V-Power LEGO Model which is the Fiorano Shell Station.

This playset is modeled after the Shell station on Scuderia Ferrari’s private racetrack - Fiorano track in Fiorano Modenese, near Maranello, Itali and comes with a Shell Fuels Scientist LEGO Minifigure.


There are total of 79 LEGO bricks are used in this model. As the number of bricks are larger than the ordinary car models, thus the packaging is also relatively bigger in size.



There is a small separate package in the main package for smaller parts.


According to the instruction given, we 1st assemble the Shell Fuels Scientist LEGO Minifigure which is pretty easy and straightforward.


Assembling of the Fiorano Shell Station involves 2 major components. Firstly, we assemble the base of the station as follow:




After the base is done, we then assemble the roof part of the station:



Combine the 2 components - the base and the roof to form a complete Fiorano Shell Station model!


The right side view:


The fuel pump view which I particularly like it!!


As usual... there are few extra components as "spare parts"....

Shell V-Power LEGO Model - Ferrari F138

Shell LEGO promotion is finally back to Malaysia and it is definitely a good news for the Shell-LEGO collectors. The last time Shell having the similar promotion is about 3 years ago where 6 car's models namely Ferrari 150° Italia, 458 Italia, 250 GT Berlinetta, FXX, F40, Scuderia Ferrari Truck and a pit crew minifigures set were made available for collection.


This time the promotion is started on 1st November 2015 until 31st January 2016 and what differ from the last promotion is that there will be only one new LEGO model released in weekly basis. There are total of 7 exclusive models to be collected featuring 4 iconic Ferrari cars, a Shell station modeled after the one at Fiorano circuit, Scuderia Ferrari’s private racetrack in Maranello, Italy, a Finish Line podium and a limited edition of Shell tanker.

The following is how you can qualify to purchase the Shell V-Power LEGO models:
  • RM9.90 with the purchase of Shell V-Power 97 or Shell V-Power Racing 
  • RM13.90 with the purchase of Shell Fuelsave 95, Shell Fuelsave Diesel or Shell Fuelsave Euro 5 
  • RM9.90 with the purchase of one bottle of Shell Helix HX5, Shell Helix HX7 or Shell Helix Ultra engine oils
The 1st in the series which was made available on 1st November is Ferrari F138 which is a Ferrari Formula One's car. Ferrari F138 originally known as Ferrari F2013 is built by Scuderia Ferrari for use in the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship™. Same with Ferrari 150° Italia, this racing car was driven by twice World Champion Fernando Alonso (in blue helmet) and his team mate Felipe Massa (in green helmet).


The name combines the year of production and the number of cylinders – the eighth and final year of the competition for the V8 engine.

42 LEGO bricks are used to build up this model.


 Here are how the model is assembled:





This time around, there is no driver number on the front sticker to choose between Alonso or Massa's car. However, the green cap is still available just in case some collectors may prefer to substitute the blue with the green.


As usual, there are some extra parts after the installation.
