I'm guessing this is the central/southern malaysia hokkien. Direct translation:
te : pig
ka : leg
png : rice

The other 2 : Ore Mee", & "Cham Kee Tng" (Bak Kee Tng), I "see no road" :-? :ko:

If you are adventurous, then venture further in-land butterworth/prai and in a little housing estate, you can find this stall operating in a home ( terrace ) that serves what is known there as Alma Shou Mee Noodles ( Penang style prawn mee ) corner house at Lintang Damai - Lorong Damai 1 junction, N5 20.354 E100 28.360. If you do not have transport, then it is difficult to go to it.
