chap goh meh + birthday

Today is Chap Goh Mei and also the 21st birthday of our youngest son. We had a double celebration with a simple and happy meal at home.

Earlier in the morning I went to buy roast duck from my favourite shop in Pelita Commercial Centre. I've been a loyal customer of Seng Kee for the past ten years.

I like this out-of-focus and over-exposed image, xD. No need to be perfect all the time, haha!

What about this one to whet your appetite? Making you drool? You must be hungry now...

The boss was so busy with customers queuing up that he ignored me taking the pics. I would highly recommend this shop; it's also very popular among Bruneians too. The people are friendly; the pricing is fair and the meats are juicy, tender and well-caramelized.

I like this B & W photo of the boss in action! xD
