Gin & Tell
Deciding on Sunday lunch keeps getting more challenging. I made the random choice of Sushi Kame at Atria Shopping Gallery. When we walked in, it was kinda deserted. The reason dawned on me after I went through the menu. I would give it a rating of $$$. Since I was there, might as well order something more premium to gauge the quality of its food. From the picture, the Ladies Set didn't look like much. It was actually served in a course. For MYR55, one got an appetizer, salad, chawanmushi, sashimi, grilled gindara, chirashi don, stewed pork and a bowl of udon. Add that to my oyako don (MYR28) and you get two very full customers.
As usual, there was a function going on at centre atrium and mum sat down for it. Gintell had an opening ceremony for their new shop and it was officiated by their brand ambassadors, Amber Chia and Datuk Jalaluddin Hassan. The ceremony included a lion dance with eight lions. Sitting there for hours wasn't a total loss as mum got a heart-shaped pillow with Datuk Jalaluddin Hassan's face on it. Can't believe that both of them worked with Gintell for more than a decade already. Amber looked pretty much the same after motherhood and thankfully she speaks better now. The emcees kept getting facts wrong about the brand ambassadors. Not very professional at all. But it doesn't matter I guess, since not many people were there to witness it.
