I went to a hawker food centre at Taman Mega, Petaling Jaya for breakfast this morning. We stopped by a provision store to buy some stuff and I saw this Indian man selling putumayam, a traditional Indian food. The putumayam is actually balls of cooked rice vermicelli sprinkled liberally with grated coconut and brown sugar.

Nearby is a wet market.

Later we went to the Taman Mega hawker food centre. It was crowded and we had to wait awhile for a table.

We ordered this: bee hoon (rice vermicelli) soup with pork balls, Chinese sausage and minced pork fried in black soya sauce. A very popular hawker food, famous for its springy pork balls.

Then we went to check out an apartment which my sister and her husband had bought two years ago at a cost of RM 198,000. It is only about slightly over 900 sq feet. The selling price now is about RM240,000.
