My team was out on market survey again ... the 3rd trip and hopefully, the last trip. Having covered Sg Buloh, Rahman Putra, Sri Damansara, Kepong, Damansara Utama, Kota Damansara and Mutiara Damansara the last 2 trips, this time round, we covered Rawang and Selayang areas.
We planned to leave office by 10am, then each and every one of us had something to complete before we could leave the office. By the time we started our journey, it was almost 12pm. Since our first stop for the day was Rawang, the guys suggested to have lunch prior to the important assignment. Salesman being salesman, they are really good with places to eat. They suggested to eat at the famous steam fish in town ... Restoran Lan Je.
We reached the restaurant about 1pm and there were a few group of customers waiting for their tables. After a while, a lady approached us and took our order while waiting for seats. The restaurant sells very limited dishes and their speciality is the steam fish. Not long thereafter, we had our seats.
While waiting for our food to be served, I took a few photos of the restaurant and observed that most of the customers ordered a fish to each one of them. My colleagues told me that their fish is so nice and tender, customers will not mind the waiting and usually ordered a fish to each person. Then, I suggested to order additional fish.
Our food came about half an hour thereafter. In addition to the three fishes, we ordered four angle beans in belachan and kongpo cuttlefish.
The fishes were not too big in size and were extremely yummy with lots of ginger in soy bean paste and steam to perfection. The restaurant only serve one type of fish in one type of cooking ie steam tilapia. The only option available is whether you like the fish to be of normal spiciness or extra. That makes the restaurant able to focus and remain specialise in its speciality.
Look ... how clean were our fishes!
The total bill came to RM80 for the above dishes with 4 rices, 3 Cokes, 2 100 Plus and mineral water.
This Rawang restaurant is the original branch, with other two branches in Balakong and Kota Damansara.

After work today, I went for my Hot Yoga class. After the class, I was so sweaty and hot that my exercise t-shirt was all wet, I changed to a clean spaghetti strap top.
On the way home, there was a road block, which is a common sight nowadays. The uncommon thing is ... I was stopped by the police! After checking my road tax, I was requested by the policeman to pull my car to the side of road.
OMG ... what happened? What have I done wrong? My heart beat faster than Michael Jackson's Beat It.
Another policeman walked to me and asked for my licence. I took out my IC and that's not the right one. I took out my licence with photo on it and that's also not the right one. Finally, I found the renewal licence and gave to the policeman. Thank God, its only expiring in a few years time. Then, he walked over to the left of my car and checked my road tax. Its also not expired yet.
Then, the police said "OK". I said "OK? Then, why did you stop me?" The police said "Nothing, just checking".
Phew .... told you that I don't like driving and I don't like road block too. Not that I've done any offence, but I just don't like the "heart beating" feeling.
Must be the sweaty, hot, tired look after the Hot Yoga!
