This is perhaps the best 3D2N tour package that provides excellent meals and hotel accommodation as we journeyed up to Seremban, KL, Tanjung Tualang, Kampar, Ipoh and Tanjung Sepat.
One of the highlights of the tour starting from 26May was our first lunch stop at Seremban located within an industrial/commercial area although it seemed such a dry and uneventful place to enjoy a nice meal. But it is far from the maddening crowd yet so pompous to have a big feast usually thrown in celebration of a special occassion and we were just having our lunch.


It's a two storey restaurant with huge dining area, good for wedding on the upper floor. Here's we were treated to a two hour lunch with superb servings dish after dish, very unlike any other tour meal where they rushed you through with mediocre fares only.

We had the taste of the famous Hakka Dish of PENG CHAI or "POON CHOY" here, way before Chinese New Year and it's a pot of Good Fortune Seafood loaded with layers of expensive seafood, meat and vegetables that can cost upto SGD300 or more during the Chinese New Year period in Singapore but unbelievably it is included in the tour package.

Restoran Dragon earned a name for themselves with the Best POON CHOY offered in Seremban and the owner, an affable man in his 60s, Mr Bi Ah Lek ANS. AMN PMC and PJK is a first generation owner with more than 40years in the business.


My 80+ Aunty with the owner, Mr Bi Just within 2009 they have served over 4880 tables of POON CHOI and is still counting as the year has not ended. In fact as we left, they started to gear up for an Indian wedding with the host entertaining their guests in a popular Chinese Restaurant to lap up to RM50,000 worth of good spread that they cannot forget.




POON CHOY is a treasure trove of topgrade and premium ingredients that fills the pot, usually a huge claypot, and it is an age old delicacy dating back to the Song Dynasty. In this modern day, it is usually served during Chinese New Year. It represents happiness and unity in the family where family members unite together on such festive occassion to enjoy a meal from one big pot. To the Chinese, the premium stuffs usually signifies abundance and good fortune and we were sincerely fortunate to enjoy such a feast even before CNY.




We made sure that we did a treasure hunt and altogether we found at least 16 items (usually about 38 items therein) in abundance and it was certainly an overprovision as we could not finish the whole pot....if not we can "tarpau" back, it will be an excellent leftover that will taste so good...

There was no Red Packet to give for a special occassion yet we were each served with big bowls of Sharkfin Soup that is thick and not the usual measly few strands swimming in a small bowl. In it, we could feel the freshness of crabmeat, not crabsticks complete with a fresh scallop and we simply feasted on this meal.


As we were wowed dish after dish, it seemed like a never-ending meal as we got to taste a simple specialty of a dug out egg filled with meat and drizzled with nice gravy. This was just the start of the journey and we were already amazed by the generosity and the genuine gesture that makes a good tour.
