Close up view of my favorite 'too kah' with huge peanuts....
A set meal of main dish of your choice, rice, soup, omelete,vege, fruits, and 'tong sui' (sweet soup) plus the a complimentary drink.
The famous pearl milk tea which I order hot with some 'pearls' in it. This complimentary drink can be served cold.
Besides the rice dishes there are steamboats and Taiwanese noodles to choose from. For the ambience it is a bit crowded but you will have the company of the colourful fishes in the few beautiful aquariums put there by the owner.

Anyone, including infants, children, and pregnant women, can have GERD.
*Sour or bitter taste in the mouth.
*Loss of voice for no apparent reason
*Wheezing or other asthma-like symptoms
*An antacid usually provides relief
*Symptoms of heartburn are often mistaken for signs of a heart attack. Pain from a heart condition is usually made worse by physical activity, but heartburn is not usually caused by physical activity. However, if you think you are having a heart attack, or you're not sure, it's important that you go to the emergency room immediately. (That's what I did)
*Pain in the chest
*Hoarseness in the morning
*May feel like food is stuck in the throat
*Persistent dry cough

I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me he wanted to bring the water to a boil.
When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven.
As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but instantly the water in the cup'blew up' into his face.The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand but all the water had flown out into his face
due to the build up of energy.
His whole face was blistered and he had 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face, which may leave scarring.
He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was
attending to him stated that this is fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should
never be heated in a microwave oven.
If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as: a woodenstir stick, tea bag, etc.
It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a tea kettle ."
General Electric's (GE) response:
Micro waved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point.
They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup
when it is moved or when something like a spoon or teabag is put into it.
To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.
If you pass this on ... you could very well save someone from a lot of pain and suffering.
