Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 7

Wow! I didn’t expect a 2-day-1-night trip to span over 7 days of blog posting but there’s just too much I want to share, like the unblemished simple-styled yet tasty food and the pulchritudinous landscapes of Sungei Lembing, an old tin mining town, that has in recent years become an exciting tourist destination for Malaysians and foreigners alike.

All good things must come to an end and this is it, folks! We’re on our way back to Singapore but first, a stopover at Ooi Kee Restaurant for lunch in Endau, a small town located north of Mersing, Malaysia. Endau lies on the northern tip of east Johor and the southern tip of Pahang. It is known for being one of the largest fishing ports on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Our last groupie meal.
Michael said, “Trust me” when I asked what we were having for lunch.

It’s like a one pot meal with proteins and vegetables.

Taukee (Dried Beancurd Sticks) and canned Button Mushrooms.
This was meant for Michael who had recently turned vegan but some of the boys didn’t realised that and started digging into the pot devouring the clear broth, nodding their heads approvingly of the tasty (I think it’s similar to BKT ) soup.
Of course, generous Michael didn’t mention anything.

Sg Lembing Roasted Pork

The sign usually rean “No outside food and & drinks” in Singapore but here in Restoran Ooi Kee, the folks were helpful enough to stir-fry the leftovers of our Lembing Roasted Pork take-away.

Robin (standing) was reluctant to leave his seat for this picture as he was hungry.
“Why me?” he asked, when I said to move. Lol…
I was puzzled with Benny’s action in this frame when I took the picture until he posted…

The shooter's been shot! :D

So many fond memories we brought back with us. Benny is already planning a Sekinchan trip with Michael and Mr. Aw said he is looking forward to it! As for me, it spells another shot at the Milky Way 😀

We’re on our way back to Singapore after lunch but there’s always room for dessert!
We’re heading to a petrol station to get Magnum Ice Creams when the bus gets refuelled later! 😉
