Me? I am a heavy eater animal. Not as much as Vincent or Phakai though. But whenever I look into my pocket, I need to think of what to eat. ‘Coz my wallet is always leaking; I need to think of something which is filling and cheap. Usually I order the cheapest food without drinks. Mix rice with rice and curry – my cheapest meal of all (RM 1.10). Last time in
This month, October, I got my mind screwed up, gone haywire. I noticed, I realized and yet I did it, I spent so much this month. I didn't work this month, but I went to Genting for my birthday. That's not all, spending on friends’ birthday presents? And movies in cinema? There goes RM 300++ (Not really that much, but do you know how much it means for me? Hei, I am jobless!)… I look like pretty beaten up ya? Not yet! I could still stand (crawl if I couldn't walk) and enjoy Madam Kwan in Midvalley (28 Oct)!!! How’s that? Jino in Madam Kwan? It looks like a Chu Chun Hong in Starbucks!!! Woah Jino upgrade already wor~ I can imagine Fiona say so, although she knows that wasn’t my first time there.
Madam Kwan is located on the first floor in Midvalley. We were served and seated. Looking around me, the left table was only 10 cm away from me, both eating nasi lemak. The right table couple eating nasi lemak and soup mee, another 10 cm away. Why do they have such table arrangement? It looked like the whole row of us is sitting on the same table, next to each other. I can even listen to their conversation clearly. WTH? No privacy at all. You know la, the way I eat is so jakoon, so sia sui if they see me eat that way in such clear view... They served us strawberry scented sky juice. I introduced him nasi lemak and nasi bojari, Madam Kwan’s favourites. Anyway the waiter came to take our order.
Waiter: May I have your order?
Me: (Without thinking) 1 nasi bojari. 你呢?
Edwin: Err… Err… (Panic looking at the menu).
Me: 要不要试下他们的 nasi lemak 吗? 全部人都有叫阿.
Edwin: (Refusing nasi lemak) 我叫 beef rendang ok吗?
Me: Ok, 1 beef rendang. 2 sky juice please.
Yup, eating with my bf again (if you get what bf means). Nasi Bojari is the Indonesian coloured rice served with asam prawns, beef rendang and deep fried hometown chicken. Beef rendang is probably rice with beef rendang and cucumbers and tomatoes at sides. Minutes later, the waiter put an empty plate on the dining table. Huh? What’s that for? Another minute passed by, and our food was served. Have a look at the food we just ordered.
We stared at the unknown dish in confusion. Edwin was asking me “No nasi?” How would I know? I pointed at the unknown dish, asked the waiter to confirm, he said “This, is beef rendang”. “Oh I see… May I have the menu again please?” and we reordered. I couldn't help but to laughed my ass off. Edwin shamefully ordered nasi lemak this time lol. Told ya... There we go, side dish beef rendang (RM 13++).
I would probably wanted to order sago gula Melaka if the lunch wasn’t that full, ‘coz of the beef haha. I didn’t blame him, anyhow that was the first time he dine here. I just... smiled, and laughed a bit ^^. The food is rather expensive, don’t you think? I paid the main dishes as agreed while he had to cover up the “accident” side dish haha… Yup it’s on my treat. We spent 2 hours there, took my time cleaning up my chicken (not sia sui - not using hand) and licking the plates (sia sui style) before we watched High School Musical 3 – Senior Year. I still think Enchanted and Wall E are way much better...
We had Madam Kwan the previous day, we drove up to Sunway Pyramid for lunch the following day. Guess what’re we having for lunch this time? The story started back last year when gor gor, mum and I agreed to save money for buffet. But we never went. You know why? ‘Coz gor gor got no time, my savings are always used up for no reason, bo lui bo lui bo lui!!! But the good thing was, my mum got fed up. On Monday (27 Oct), me and mum chatted awhile.
Me: (still sleeping) 睡觉啦.什么事？
Me: swt swt swt你真得很想吃 hor？喜欢你啦.
All this while, my family is quite a Japanese food lover (except my papa). Basically we love sushi (except my papa). We love to eat raw fish (except my papa). There were several times we nastily planned, saved up some money and went for Japanese buffet and some other high class dining places (without papa - sorry he is always left out) ‘coz he doesn’t seem to like all these places. Whenever the waiter comes to us with the bill, we will always think of this question – “What is papa going to eat tonight?”
Pity him, huh? Yea, a bit. But, I get to eat. Hail yeah... He can eat alone as long as I get to enjoy. Wakaka evil me.
The place we were looking for is… SHOGUN!!!
I had been to Jogoya. Yea last year’s story. 2 person for RM 200.50!!! Yea they rob me legally. My mum and gor gor had been there too. For me, the outstanding price is unaffordable. But for my mum and gor gor, they felt cheated ‘coz they don’t get good service and food was ok ok. So we never put Jogoya into our eating list. Jogoya, good to try once, but never twice – my gor gor. I heard that Shogun in 1-Utama and Saisaki in UOA had their reputation decreased ‘coz lack of commitment or some sort. As suggested, Sunway’s new outlet might be a bit better (might be slightly better to increase their new image). And I hope they have the same variety as dinner to be chosen in lunch. Anyway, I get to taste some sushi again. The last time I’ve been to sort was Saisaki last year, for Mother’s Day if I wasn’t mistaken. And also Sushi Station in Sg. Wang for my birthday if that place is counted in as well ^^.
At first we were lost in the Sunway parking lot. I entered the lorry’s loading bay, forced to park in there and parking rate is slightly higher. Bodohnya… Anyway the parking fee is still much cheaper compared to
Guess how much weight had I gained? I ended up gaining extra 2 pounds!!! How do I get rid of it? 24 hours after eating; now I am still full and skipped my dinner. Looks like I’m gonna skip my lunch the next day as well. A buffet meal, save up 2 meals the next day? Malaysian + buffet = super duper full – 2 meals. I think I had eaten enough to make my RM 49.45 worth while. Now I am totally broke and no more buffet till at least next year Chinese New year Shangri La buffet plan ^^v.
