I was going for FIR concert today with my friend, KC. We have about an hour to dine before the show starts. We took a while of walking before we came to this restaurant, which serves Chinese food and not BKT.

The sweet sour chicken was quite nice. My friend’s herbal chicken, the soup was nice and it has a little bitterness to it. Unfortunately, the coffee was straight from vending machine. I would’ve get them from office if I wanted a vending machine’s coffee. Disappointing. Overall, the dinner was fine but like most of the restaurants in Genting Highlands, they are overpriced. This round my friend bought the dinner cause I got him those VIP tickets to the FIR concert.

I went to meet my sister at Kuchai Lama to get the FIR concert tickets from her. It was already 2pm when I reached there and I was dead hungry. So I went to the nearby shop and have a quick lunch. She recommended me flat flour noodle at the corner shop, but it was packed with people as it was peaked hour for lunch. So I decided to have a quick one at Face 2 Face, which I saw an outlet in Subang Jaya as well.

The dried curry smells really good, but it tasted mediocre. Though, it got worse and worse as you eat. So I couldn’t finish it, I left about 1/2 of it. The only nice thing there would have to be the FREE Wifi and Siraitia grosvenorii with longan drink.

My colleague asked me to go for Sakae Sushi for lunch today. Since I’ve never snap any photos on Sakae Sushi before, I agreed to go with her.

Despite so little stuff that we ordered, we were quite full by the time we finished our lunch. The special item with prawn on it was really tasty. The prawn was fried to crisp that you could swallow the whole thing. The other muachi-like thing with red bean paste in it was quite tasty as well. Despite the red bean paste was sweet, the strawberry was not rendered sour at all, which was a good combination. It was served cold and made a very good dessert as you don’t usually find dessert in a sushi restaurant, except perhaps for some jellies. My colleague caught me by surprised when she insisted on paying for the meal.

There were 4 of us going for Japanese food at Kansai. Unfortunately, 1 of them being KSP. Anyway, we still need to eat.

As usual, the unagi on the Black Dragon maki was getting smaller and smaller, as if they’ve shrank into oblivion. I remembered the first time I had the Black Dragon maki, the unagi was abundance. It fully covered the top of the rice. Miso soup was just how it should be. Unfortunately, the recommended Hurricane maki was very filling. Mainly because it wasn’t that nice. It was sweet because the outside was fried potato or something, it was sweet. Aside from that, it was costly as hell as well. RM25 for that thing which was not appetizing. We were given a complimentary dish this time. It has only cucumber and salty sauce in it as compared to the complimentary dish we had last time which has some crackers in it.

DC promised to bring his stock of essence of chicken about 2 months ago. Finally, he brought it to office today. It was not the usual Brand’s brand, but of something else.

Despite being free, but this free food is definitely not good food. I never thought it tasted so yucky. It doesn’t taste a wee bit like chicken, it was a little bitter, felt oily and purely weird.

The plain vermicelli was mediocre, but if you add in some nasi lemak sambal, it would be really nice.

It was acceptable fruits rojak, at least for within 5km radius from my residence. Unfortunately, the pricing was very inconsistent from this shop. It was quite cheap back then until the lady boss selling economy rice took over the stall. I’d say it’s rather expensive.
