One the eve of Christmas Eve (:P), went to watch "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" at GSC Signature, The Gardens Mall. While buying tickets, bumped into a friend who was doing the same. The difference was that we were on leave and he sneaked out of the office. :D. Quite an end to the Hobbit trilogy, though the book didn't really have enough substance for three movies. But it was interesting to see Galadriel going all ape shit on Sauron.
Went to Tim Ho Wan after that. We weren't expecting much cause we've already heard all the bad comments. Thank goodness there was no line. Sampled their signature baked bun with BBQ pork. I wasn't impressed. KH commented that the real thing tastes nothing like that. Ideally eaten in Hong Kong or alternately Singapore. The Osmanthus jelly was quite fragrant with premium goji berries. The beefballs were disappointing due to its lousy texture. Just three items and we were outta there. Don't think I will be coming back.
Tried Nana's Green Tea next. Sampled the premium Uji-cha and cold Hōjicha with tang yuan. Guess green tea ain't really my thing.
Dinner was at Tiffin's by Chef Korn. As you can guess, the main decoration in the restaurant is tiffin carriers. Big, medium, small. The mini tiffin carriers are really cute, but they're not for sale. And they use test tubes to present their condiments. The pork noodles that I ordered was a huge disappointment cause the fried wantan skin they used had turned rancid and killed the whole dish. The stewed pork rice was much better. Not many tables tables were occupied that evening. Wonder how long they will survive at their hidden location on the top floor of Midvalley Megamall.
Our final food stop for the night was Encore Pâtisserie for coffee and cakes. A whirlwind of food and drinks. Burp!
