Iftar the Western Way

kononnye la ... :)

We tried a western steak house somewhere in Kg Baru. Why Kg Baru? ... It's TK's idea to go there ... if given the option, this area will be last choice at this point of time ... not bcoz of the food, but bcoz of the traffic. We're lucky to find a parking spot very near to the steak house, and also very near to Masjid Kg Baru.

Th food was ok, a set of chicken grill consist of mash potatoe, coleslaw, corn on the cob, grilled chicken with lots of black pepper source for only RM7.50 and we ordered freshly blended fruit juice for only RM2.50 per big glass ... murah kan?

the scenery from my table ... of coz the setting was dark and cozy ...

the steak house ... Human Resource Steak House?? *LOL* I didn't have the chance to ask the owner :D

iftar for 2 pax, tapi airnya ada empat hehehe ... those fruit juice was only RM2.50 each ... murah for a freshly blended fruit juice

Catz: letihnye iftar kat luar ...

Left High and Dry

I was one of those people yang berduyun-duyun membanjiri Station LRT Bandar Tasik Selatan bila kami diarahkan untuk mengosongkan train yg dinaiki semalam. Of coz semua orang terpinga-pinga fikirkan alternative lain utk pulang berbuka puasa. At 7:00pm, kami masih berdiri menunggu bas yang sepatutnya disediakan oleh pihak Rapid, ada jugak yang rajin bertanya pada attendant yang bertugas kenapa train hanya stop di Tasik Selatan ... dengar-dengarnya macam ada sebut perkataan 'accident' (ni kes pasang telinga la ni ... nak tanya malas, mood takde sbb lapar hehe).

Tumit dah start sakit, pakai heel la kononnye ... dengan barang belian from sogo yg ku sangkut di lengan ala-ala makcik gitu, berat, rasa nak patah lengan menjinjing ... tapi bas tak kunjung tiba. Berbuka pun sambil berdiri, laku betul air tebu brader tu, tak menang tangan nak layan.

Fedup menunggu, terus ambik keputusan naik komuter sampai serdang & ambik cab ke parking Bukit Jalil. Cekik darah betul cab fare ... RM21 dari stesen komuter Serdang ke stesen lrt Bukit Jalil ... giler!! Nak tak nak, kena dibayar juga, sbb tak larat dah kepenatan ... Lastly sampai rumah around 9:15pm ... rupa-rupanya betul lah lrt accident kat stesen Bukit Jalil.

I love the excitement of having invitations to iftar gathering, one after another. Recently, we had an iftar gathering at Kagumas, Bandar Baru Bangi. Organizer: Suparjo a.k.a Fazli. To those who feel that they were not invited or have never heard about the invitations, please marah Pajoe ... ehehe acah je.

The food was ok-ok, variety jugak, but I didn't have the chance to taste all 40 dishes coz TK had to hurry back to MV.

Dunno why, almost all yg hadir adalah x-programmer ... ironic kan? :))

Antara lauk pauk yg kami ambil ... i love their gulai lemak daging salai with mangga muda ... superb

kak bib dan crew-crew nye ... aikk ... echah & faghah dah berbuka before azan kekekek ...

New Office

As of this week, I’ll be working in a new office in KL. Now I’ll be the city slickers like I’m supposed to be (since I was born here in KL la kononnye hehe … padahal KL Tower pun tak pernah pergi kui kui kui ). How do I feel so far? It’s been quite a rough first week at work where I have to digest lots and lots of things. Meeting new people is interesting for sure, meeting a new group which varies in huge socio-demographic factors is event more interesting. I have no idea of what’s in store for me in the future, but I’ll try my best and if my best wasn’t good enough, I’ll be hunting again … *LOL*

Catz: syiok gak naik lrt ...

Mood Raya

I took mom to Midvalley last weekend. As soon as we entered MV, instantly I can feel the Raya Mood in the air with Mat Jais’s ‘Selamat Hari Raya’ song playing on the loud speaker, with all the hanging ketupat and baju melayu decorations plus the in saintly delicious smell of raya cookies. The best thing that contributes the most to the whole look and feel was the Kampung setting in the middle of Centre Court. Its not like I’ve never seen a Kampung house before, but the setting brought back all the memoirs of spending my raya in Kampung during my childhood. Now there’s no more kampong house in my kampong. Bungalows, terraces and high rise condominiums had taken the place of our traditional houses. *Sigh*

We’ll know we’re in raya mood when all cookies & kerepeks dealers start to distribute their orders, and soon, everybody will start queuing their way in banks or money changers for some new change of ringgit bills, the bus station will be crowded with people trying to get home on time for raya, the main highways will be extraordinary crowded with vehicles and the sound of firecrackers or sometimes an illegal loud pipe canon will fill up the air at night.

Alas, even with the raya mood is in the air, I’ll be fairly broke this raya … *LOL* I’m saving for the big event after raya :) Beli kuih raya hutang boleh tak? *LOL*

How Time Flies

We're reaching the end of September. Oh my! ... how time flies, regardless whether you have fun or not. But I'm sure having lots of fun.

Last night I joined an iftar gathering organized by Puan Shira (thanks Shira for inviting). Seoul Garden was the venue. It's a Korean Restaurant somewhere in Plaza Pantai just next to federal highway. Seoul Garden offers an all-you-can-eat steamboat and BBQ ramadhan buffet at the price of RM40++. There were so much food for sure, but there's also a catch ... you got to cook your own food! *LOL*. So smokes were all over the place last night ... everybody went back with oily foreheads, smoky clothes and certainly fully loaded stomach. :D

The second week of Ramadhan will end soon and I think I've lost about 5 more kg (+-1) :D I'm having so much fun with the food and yet I lost some kilos, best giler ... I love Ramadhan!

background macam kat States!

Steamboat and BBQ buffet. Seoul Gardens also offers lots of other dishes ... nasi goreng, kari ayam, dessert, ice cream, kuih muih, rojak and plenty more.

"Hai ... ingatkan hari ni cuti masak, berbuka kat luar pun kena masak gak", *LOL*

lepas makan kita lepak-lepak kat tengah jalan sat ...
