next in line....

The coffee shop business is in-grained in the blood of the Wong family. Found on the walls of the 'Kelang & Coast Coffee Tea & Restaurant Association' (didnt even know this sort of association existed, am pretty sure they are of non-profit status :D):

1st 'Wong' past president (my Great grandfather, for the educated, its my father's father's father)
2nd 'Wong' past president (my grandfather)

Next in line....? (already owner of coffeeshop :D)

Or who knows, i might be in line too?! hahaha

The signboard designs have been selected. Its going to be white (restoran) and yellow/gold (hainan curry rice / 海 南 咖 喱 饭 餐 馆) text against a black background.

Drama surrounding the design / creation of the signboard....Daniel had created one which in the end was not required by the Partners as the cost was too high. A clear lack of communication between all parties. Not sure what the normal design charges are but RM600 for a logo and signboard (design only) sounds a bit steep, but we cant really make a call on the pricing as we havent utilised similar services before.

Final total design and production cost c. RM1,500.

hainan curry rice and details

I just googled 'hainan curry rice' and was NOT referred here. mmm.....
Lets see if this will help....

The Partners have set up: Restoran Hainan Curry Rice
HCR will be serving: hainan curry rice and everything else Hainanese
History: hainaN currY ricE was birthed in Hainan island and with a recipe that is more than 60 years old - the combination of traditional hainan taste with local flavours and spice
Where are we: haiNan cuRry riCe will be served @ 26-0 Lorong Batu Nilam 3C, Bandar Bukit Tinggi, 41200 Klang

going to try googling again.

please sign on the dotted line

The Partners have sealed the lease agreement (3+2). There's no turning back now!

The 'baby' at birth. Crap, realised its like the birthed 'out-of-wedlock' kind hahaha. But thankfully there's the saving grace of the 'curry' word.

Now you see it, soon you wont.........(the wall).........

Looking out to the horizon........we're moving on up and moving on OUT!! Get READY!!

flash gordon in motion

Things are moving fast......VERY FAST. The Partners (Dad and Boo) will be signing the shop lease agreement either today or tomorrow, but they're making their visas today to go to Myanmar to get their workforce = the HCR crew! The map is done and its going behind the business cards, printing them soon and letterhead designs are done as well.

The pretender contender hahaha...

The winner (i know it looks really familiar....jus dont think where you've seen this format before :D)
