What was his secret? His old style (not the corporate fashionable style) friendliness and his kindness. He would always give his customers more than they paid for. And that was true for many of his faithful home cooked food loving customers. How long had he and his family been operating Fat Cat at Bintang Mall? 17 years. And every year his food got better.
It was a real shock to me that he and his family had to move away from his top floor spot - which has become one of the favourite eating places in Miri. And a second kitchen to many busy housewives.
Would he operate in Miri again? We have to wait and see. But in the meantime we will have to forego eating the nice curry chicken and the hot favourite - steamed minced pork with tou hoo.... His stir fried meeding was always fresh and crunchy and tasty.
The main dish which pulled me - Foochow style minced pork with tou hoo. (When I took this photo...only a little left.....oooooo)
Happy food server with a polite attitude towards all races...a winning point.
The mother figure who always gave a nice smile and an understanding nod.
|The happy go lucky man..Fat Cat. He is multi lingual and is a keen observer of people. If he had gone to school he would have scored high in EQ and psychology. He used to be heavier. Now he has slimmed down and looks very young.|
