Ay-yai-yai, I used to blame my expanding belly on Hypothyroidism. I guess the upkeep of this blog sure does come at a price. With the rise in my waistline comes the issue of ‘shrinking’ pants.

So we were in Rawang late this morning to pay the local AEON Jusco Department Store a visit so that Brendan’s old man could look for some work pants that’ll fit the Michelin Man. We were here some months ago and it was pretty desolate (we personally liked it this way) but with the coming Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid-Fitr) it was busy and bustling with shoppers.

We also meant to have lunch at a Chinese food court in Rawang tackily named “I Love You”, which peaked our interest. Unfortunately the coordinates given led us to a dead-end in a housing estate at Bukit Rawang. On our way back to town we stumbled across this BKT restaurant and decided to give it a try.

The old Uncle who took our order was a very cheerful and friendly person; we were immediately made to feel at home. In hindsight, it was a shame that we didn’t think to take some photographs of this very warm and welcoming Uncle. Oh well, we’ll be sure to do so the next time we’re here.

bon appetit!


We don’t know if it’s because we were famished or if it was because the broth made us go all ‘her-ballistic’ but the pot was emptied in a jiffy! The damage? Including a round of Cokes for everyone it came to RM42, within the realms of the everyday food for the everyday person. If you’re ever in Rawang and in the mood for some Bak Kut Teh then head on over here, a place we would definitely recommend.

Forced Hiatus!
