Just Nuts about Jeans (Part 2)

My jeans craze has continued and I brought myself these jeans:-

1. Yanuk Jeans

2. 7 For All Mankind Detroit Jeans

The jeans brought from these brands are just great for my body shape compared to Levi's ke aper ke yg nampaknya untuk wanita berbontot kecik, tak seperti diriku ini hehehe.

And I think the craze continues. Will blog more about other purchases.

Happy Ramadhan everyone!

Food Glorious Food

Had the fortune (or misfortune depending on how you look at it) to go to JB for a hearing, only to find on the day of hearing that my file has been closed (WTF?).

Anyways, Aries being extra nice knew the only thing that could make me smile is FOOD, took me to some amazing places. Shall start:-

Tempat Makan Ada Belangkas (Stall Tak Tahu Nama)

Ok, this place was near the zon, dekat kedai bebanyak tepi laut tu. It was so delish.

Teh O Panas 

My Belangkas, it was so so delicious and tasted like lobster, masak dgn sambal 

Masak Sotong sambal, yummy! 

What is in this strange looking package?

Open it and Lo and Behold, the nasi! 

The delicious ikan pari, yummy 

And untuk nampak healthy, some kailan hehehe

Next day, after the hearing, Aries took me to:-

ZZ Sup Tulang

Otak-otak yg sgt sedappp 

Aries, khusyuk nak get ready makan 

Telur Dadar... 

The famous sup tulang, the straw is given to suck out the marrow...slurrrppp

Until the next foodie post!

Anjakan Paradigma

Haha, the title of this post macam drama. But this is what Farah Shu told me when she managed to persuade me to go to dinner with clients (on a Saturday no less!!)

It was at Senses, Hilton KL. The food was decadent.

 lovely smoked fish

 foie gras

big chunk of Wagyu

Sorry the quality of the pics was bad. Somehow cannot get the pics to turn as well. Hish. And I forgot to take a picture of the dessert which was divine.

Anyways, since we are on the topic of food, I have taken various pics of food eaten around.

Desserts galore! 

Starters yum yum!

These 2 pics of food were taken from the Palm Garden hotel buffet! It had a barbeque buffet so agak berbaloi jugakla kalau makan byk seafood kan. It was a nice family outing some couple of weeks back.

And I do not know what has gotten into me, I have actually agreed to attend the firm's family day in Sunway Lagoon!! What has gotten into me? Anjakan paradigma indeed!!! Hahaha

Quote of the Day

‎"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams

Let our differences unite us and not divide us..

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter...
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As the Bersih rally went on last Saturday, I watched anxiously and kept up with the news on Malaysiakini.

I remember how my maid was pissed as she had to cancel her leave.

As the drama unfolded, so did the posts, comments and blogs of my fellow friends. It was only then did I realise how different we all are, in so far as opinions, beliefs and views are concerned.

I know some of my friends struggle to keep their composure in defending what they believe in, I know some were cynical, I know some were angry, I know some were downright rude.

But were you, any of you there to witness the events? When you hear rumors of what happened, did you take steps to verify it?

I don't know what happened and so wisely, I shall not open my mouth and comment. Lets read from those who were there:-

1. A lawyer in the monitoring team here;

2. Marina Mahathir's account of the events here;

3. The accounts of Charis Ding on Malaysia Today here;

4. The account of Abdul Haleem here; and

5. Last but not least, Aunty Anne here.

Enough of the hate, the distrust, the judgment on each other. Bersih has come and gone, it was an event and it has passed. But we, you and I are here to stay. We ARE the future of this country, every single one of us.

Let us celebrate our differences and have it unite us, not the other way round.

Bak kata org, 'Dalam hati tu biar ada taman' hehehehe.

Papillion, Solaris Dutamas

I have not been updating for a while. Been busy with things at work.

So anyways, amidst the restaurants popping up like mushrooms after the rain at my workplace, which is apparently a 'happening place' for some. Papillion is a quaint little restaurant nestled next to Comida. They have a lunch promotion which a colleague and I decided to try out.

This is the starter, creamy pumpkin soup. I loved the texture

My carbonara. I personally love this, but a friend of mine who tried this much later stated that it was nothing extraordinary. I disagree
My colleague had the lamb chops.
Cinnamon Tea was complimentary. Yummy, this was just great. The cinnamon taste was enough to titillate the taste buds, but were not overpowering.
My fave part about the restaurant, we get to put in our own pepper! You know how annoying it is when restaurant waiters do it for you and then take it away...hehe.

The set came with ice lemon tea but I did not take pics of those.

The lunch set is priced reasonably at RM16.90.
