Leong Yew Kopitiam
This kopitiam (coffee shop) is quite old style and the customers are all seems like the locals. It feels like everyone is so relax. I ordered their famous coffee (mixed with the white sugar, sesame and vegetable oil). However, I don’t find it different from the ordinary coffee thou.
|There’s a mobile stall covered with cloth. It sells the yummy prawn mee!|
|It’s so appetizing with the fresh red look. The soup is very tasty too.|
|The opposite Chee Cheong Fun stall. I’ve decided to try when I saw the a gourmet’s commentary.|
|It isn’t the Hong Kong style’s Chee Cheong Fun that I always eat.|
|However, it’s topped by the shrimp paste and it’s delicious too!|
We walked around in the market after our breakfast. This is the place where the butchers sell pork.
|There are many pork shops and also those selling dry goods.|

It felt so familiar at the first glance and then I remembered I came here when I was little.
Although it is a Buddhist temple, it is still slightly different from what we have seen.
