Rightfully Shaved

Sunday was the usual church day with the exception of fantastic traffic (not like Sunday traffic in the morning is bad to begin with), thanks to the school holidays. That means that Sunday School's also off and that practically cleared up traffic around the church. Went to have YTF at OKR's Ipoh Road Yong Tau Fu, but the weather made it quite unbearable. And it didn't help that there was a TNB mobile electric generator grumbling just around the corner. Cut my hair after that at my regular stylist. He was itching to use the shaver again, so I went along with it. Shaved most of the sides and the back. Definitely felt good to have such a haircut in this horrible heat wave. Trimmed a bit of my fringe, but just to get the hair out of the corner of my eye. A little swelling there, no doubt infected due to my product-laden hair poking into the tender bits. Overall, I liked the new look. Did a little grocery shopping at Central Hypermarket before heading home.

With nothing much to do, I rewatched "Pulp Fiction" (although I had loads of newer movies that I had not watched). The scene where Marsellus Wallace and Butch get abducted by Zed the Rapist always gets me on edge. A very powerful scene where enemy becomes ally in the face of cellar buggery. LOL. Later in the evening, SK brought mum and I to Restoran Lek Lek, a gem of a restaurant hidden in Pusat Perdagangan Seri Kembangan. When we arrived, it was quite full on both floors. The waitresses couldn't be bothered to find us a table, so we helped ourselves. SK knew exactly what to order-- Japanese escargot in butter sauce (nice, crunchy texture), braised homemade beancurd with loofah (a nice wine-infused aroma in the gravy), Fa Kwat Loong-- basically a Threadfin that was disassembled into fish paste, fried and reassembled into a whole fish (recommended!) and some fried vegetables. Do give it a try if you're in that part of the woods. Good food, quick kitchen and fair price.
