Our regular seafood restaurant in Telok Gong is Good Friends Seafood Restaurant, but this time we decided to try a different restaurant, so this time we went for Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant.
Coconut Flower is supposedly the most famous and reputable seafood restaurant in Telok Gong, but during the very first time we went there (that time, Papa and Mommy were still at the courting stage and Mommy's mum treat the whole family for dinner there), the food was so-so only and the price not very cheap. The second time we went there was when Papa and Mommy took leave from work to go for 1-day outing but with Juan Or (then still an infant) at the babysitter's house, to which the food was on the bland side and the price was cheap. Anyway, Mommy didn't blog about Coconut Flower for the second visit because Mommy's style is to blog about the restaurant or food only if Juan Or is with us, otherwise the outing will just go unrecorded! ^_^
So after the food was ordered, came the plates, forks and spoons, glasses and of course the bucket of ice which was Juan Or's favourite! As usual, he would be sucking ice.
This GM Klang has several blocks of one-storey buildings making it looks more like a complex of wholesale buildings. Turned out, apparently this wholesale city thing is based on the concept of wholesale traders renting units in the complex to trade their goods. The kinds of things sold there are mostly clothes, China made toys, hair accessories, ladies' accessories, hair saloon equipment and items, mannequins. Price-wise? Not as 'wholesale' as thought. The prices of things sold doesn't look like wholesale prices, in fact some are even more expensive than those offered by end-user retailers!
Here are snapshots of some of the tenants in the Wholesale City. Juan Or's hands were very 'itchy'. Whenever he saw those small and cutey knick-knacks like hair clips, key-chains, handphone pouches, soft toys, his hands would touch them and sometimes he would take them and refused to let go. Then Papa and Mommy would have a hard time trying to pry open his fingers to let go off the thing without the fretting and possible crying!
Anyway, Mommy saw these pre-school books on sale there - RM3 per book, comes with stickers as well, and if you buy 5 books, you will get 1 free. Anyway, Mommy bought only 2 books because RM3 is just reasonable (not exactly very cheap though!) for Disney pre-school books published in China and probably does not have the proper license for it. However, there are other common cartoon characters (Barney, Dora, etc.) as the books' themes although the contents of learning ABC and counting 123 are exactly the same. So Mommy chose only Mickey Mouse and Tigger and Pooh for Juan Or since these are currently his favourite characters.
