I’ve got something to discuss with my colleague, so we came to a quiet place which is not too far away from office. Unfortunately, there aren’t many selections of choice on the menu.

The egg sandwich seemed to have shrunk. Funnily, the bread was like a love shape. I joked about it that the boss liked her for giving her the love shaped bread. As for my American breakfast, it wasn’t really that nice. She left me part of her sandwich, hence I couldn’t finish all my bread.

Hiro Cake

Posted: 2008-12-18 by W in 3.0 - 3.9, Eat, Halal, Non-vegetarian, Snack

The other night after my dinner, I went to MK Snack to buy some junk food. I found Hiro cake hidden on 1 of the shelves. Unfortunately, it came in a box of 24 pieces. Since I never had them for sooooo long, I guess I’ll just buy a lot of them to fill up my craving holes that formed over the years.

... long time no see, my Hiro.

I was really happy that I found it. I still remember the taste very clearly the first time I had it. And the 2nd time I had it, it tasted the same as well, but that was so many years ago. I was around 13-year old back then and I’ve only had 2 my whole life. Now we have reunited, but things got bitter over the time. Rather than the sweet chocolate taste with soft and tender cake underneath, the chocolate now tasted really sweet, but aside from that, salty as well. Weird indeed, but I just couldn’t accept it. The cake was acceptable, a bit sweetened. Just that the salted taste really put me off. I lost my appetite after the 1st piece. There were 23 more to go… *gulp*

Me and another 3 colleagues, ALGJ, LG and TSL came to Well Cook Gourmet for lunch. When we were there, I met other colleagues and SAP consultants there as well. Funny thing was, another group of colleagues and SAP consultant went to the same place again. I guess the place was raided by the people from my company.

The 2 out of the 3 ladies were having problem with their order. ALGJ made her choice really early and I ordered asam laksa as I saw it on the menu. While I recommended the nasi goreng kampung and fried laksa to both LG and TSL respectively. The tomyam beehoon was quite nice, except that, I don’t really like the whole pot having only beehoon. The asam laksa was a tad too sweet and they deprived me of the yellow noodle. As for both nasi goreng kampung and fried laksa, I’ve had them before on my previous 2 visits.

Overall, the lunch was very full because I was being stuffed with the leftovers from their unfinished food. A piece of advice, never order complete portions if you have ladies with you, 3 of them should’ve only had the portions of 2 pax.

Went to Restoran Hao Wei Dao today with my colleague for a quick lunch. We needed to go Starbucks later to buy the tumbler at RM10. An anniversary promotional item by Starbucks Coffee.

... aglio olio mushroom and spicy one. There's another choice which is chicken.

The spicy aglio olio with mushroom was nice. Something different from what I’d usually have as it has no meat in it. The peanut butter toast, cut into little squares and served with toothpicks. A good idea but probably cost double that of other places. The fries was mediocre though, probably that’s why we can’t finish it.

Persimmons

Posted: 2008-12-16 by W in 8.0 - 8.9, Eat, Halal, Snack, Vegetarian

Brought back some persimmons from hometown, thanks to my mum. They were rather big, so I should expect some seeds in it.

... 2 persimmons here, 8 slices.

Those persimmons were not quite ripe when I took them with me from hometown. The first 2 that I had were not sweet. The following 2 more that I had were really sweet. Though there were a lot of seeds in it. There were at least 2 seeds in it, most came to 4 seeds.

Today, my colleague bought me lunch. We went to Kansai Japanese Restaurant because it’s nearby and it’s 1 of her favourite place as well.

Despite being the number… (I lost count of it) times of Soft Kani Salad that I had, it still tasted the same as compared to the first 1 I had. The soft shell crab bits were crunchy. The unknown maki, the soft shell crab in it was soft and very filling, because it was quite big. The unagi on the black dragon maki was a lot bigger than those I had previously. Probably because the boss was happy to see the pretty girl that made the order, hence he gave a bigger piece of unagi.

KC called me for dinner tonight because he wanted to show off his new Nikon D90 to me. We finally decided to have dinner at McD at DU.

Prosperity Burger is back again becuase CNY is near. This time it comes in single patty and double patty. At first I ordered the double patty, but they misheard me and got me a single patty instead. I guess I was lucky because it doesn’t taste as good as it used to be. The patty has a foul smell, probably because the patty was not properly thawed when taken out from the fridge. The curly fries were good though. Yummy~
