Cat's Away I: Dating

Woke up early to send mum to her society HQ at Kuchai Lama. Mum would be away for the weekend attending a camp in Negeri Sembilan. Wohooo! Alone time with KH! Just for that three nights, she packed a backpack, a cabin luggage and another small bag for good measure. Are mothers always like that? After dropping mum off, swung over to pick KH up. Amazingly, my boyfriend had woken up at 6:30am to jog. When he got in the car, he was sleepy and tired. However, I had one more chore before I could fill his tummy-- had to send my Iswara Skyline to the mechanic. Long overdue for an oil change and the brake was acting up. Not responsive at times, scared the hell out of me when I tried to slow down approaching the roadside newspaper vendor. :S. We went to Restoran Kah Heong, Subang Jaya for some yummy kampung chicken. Not too impressed with their prawn dumpling hor fun the last time, I tried their curry noodles this time. The more watery variety with a hint of sourness and spices. Not bad, but not super. I did like the curry paste though. Chock full of the good stuff.

KH had a lunch date at noon, and since we had a couple of hours to kill before that, we made a short stop at One Utama. Didn't buy anything except for a tube of lube. :P. The lunch venue was at Maria's Cafe, Metropolitan Square. The address was a bad indication of its location. Although the lot number started with a 'C', it was actually located at block E! And there was no mention that it was located on the second floor. We practically just stumbled upon it. Judging by the crowd, I think the place won't last long. While waiting for KH, SK and I had our lunch there too. Mediocre food and the Illy was watered down. So much for the owner's (supposedly Maria?) prologue on the menu ranting on how she as a consumer would expect the best from food establishments, and that as a restaurateur, she would not disappoint. SK's lamb shank wasn't too good and she basically left the brown sauce untouched. My veal bratwurst was better.

At 1:00pm, we went to Grand Dorsett Hotel in Subang Jaya as I needed to use my Groupon voucher. MYR69 for a scalp treatment and haircut. Took a little over an hour. KH sulked a little because I didn't purchase the deal for him. Hehe. The stylist didn't do a half bad job with my hair. Knew how to work with it. Did the usual small talk and asked me about my work, SK's work and even KH's work! Remarked that I was missing the gray hairs that are hallmark of all programmers. Stereotype la tu dik... Before calling it a day, we went to KH's favourite cafe-- K3K Benta Kaya in Kuchai Lama. Didn't stay too long as SK and I needed to celebrate sunset mass. It was the first Sunday of Advent. Luckily I did not fall asleep. Hahaha. Dinner was at Yi Xin Ge. Hot BKT, braised chicken legs and sour vegetables on a rainy night is always bliss.

the kah heong prawn dumpling is only good like if you go really early in the morning like 8-9am xD. After that period, it sucks pretty badly >_>! It really gets me wondering lol

@JokerPJ:

@KiddyStick:
Eat! :P

@Derek:
Once is enough :P

@Ash:
Some personal development thing.
Perhaps that's what he meant. But he doesn't know my age.

I tried Kah Heong for the first time few days ago. I had their Ipoh hor fun prawn wantan dumpling. Dumpling was good, soup a little salty and portion is a little light. I was hungry soon enough that night.

Ban had their roasted chicken. He preferred the one at City Sun near his place.

@Grat:
In part II

@JJ:
I've never had a giant portion of kuay teow soup before actually. Perhaps you need to order large. You didn't try the chicken?

Jaded Jeremy said...

No, I didn't try the chicken because some reviewers said the chicken was nothing to shout about but praised their noodle. I may try it next time.
