MEETING AN OLD FRIEND FROM UPM

definitely a misleading tag line on the menu

It was always a pleasure to meet old friend. Today, Mr. Azhar, an ex-fourth collegian of Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (now known as Universiti Putra Malaysia) came to JB for something related to work. He is married to my ex-TESL coursemate, Puan Sakinah.

Traveling from Seremban (to KLIA and then only) to JB, he was putting up at Thistle Hotel. So I went to fetch him right after school to get dinner. Since he wanted something authentic, I guess one of the few places I know would be Banafee. So we had "sup tulang merah" and "mertabak Singapura" which I guessed were authentic enough for Johor food. Then, brought him home for a short visit, which is a part of the tour package. As he needed to start work early the next morning, we bade each other goodbye right after that. Looking forward for another short meeting tomorrow.
