We had a monstrous clinic this Monday and I'm feeling old and lethargic and pretty useless this evening. Minimal work can be done.
Ambience 8/10. The lightning is very nice at night. Service was a little slow. Perhaps we were a huge crowd. The mains took its time coming. And food came slowly in stages. But they were attentive enough. I got a glass of wine at the end of dinner when we went down to settle the bill. The Sashimi and wasabi were both fresh. The udon was pretty good. The sushi was a little friable. It disentegrated before reaching my plate...so I used the spoon instead. Very un-japanese like I know. A nice place for atmopshere:)

Mum is small. She's my height but a good ten kilos lighter. She's underweight whereas I border on the overweight. So I chanced it when I bought a kebaya top for her during the roadtrip. Here's the formula, if I can wear it but CANNOT attempt to have the edges meet in front...it would then be just nice for her. Formula worked:) She 's very pleased with it as well as the sarung I bought for her. Brownie points galore. I also threw in some pineapple tarts and kuih bangkit.
I remember eating here years ago during my housemanship. Yeap. I did my housemanship in Melaka and thoroughly enjoyed the first and last posting. Ironically I did NOT enjoy the medical posting much. Found it hard and wishy-washy. Goes to show how you change as you get older and more exposed to things done the proper way.

2.My dad's pet bird died:Mee-nah was a gift and she died suddenly two weeks back. Dad has ordered a replacement which will arrive soon I think. The niece ( who spend a big part of her holidays squeezing Mee-nah and showering her with kisses and baths and watching DVDs together will be sad. She hasn't been told)
3.I had a hair cut. Much shorter than what I dared. Wanted to go o my trusty hairdresser but the rainy season and the pictures of the flooded basement carpark in Sg Wang Plaza scared me into postponing for now. Thankfully the rainy season has left us. We're not experiencing a heat wave. I shall not complain.
4. The rainy season has left parts of KL unpredictable. Flash floods in the city centre made travelling back from work difficult. I was caught in a few traffic jams and some scary moments driving with minimal visibility and driving through some collection of water deeper than I care to remember now. We wanted to buy a 4-wheel drive if the weather remained so.
5.I've started my Korean-drama obsession AGAIN. But this time, I've cleverly paired it with violin practice. This has seen an increase in violin playing quality and less guilt:) I've bought THREE sets last week. And have completed three sets before this. The lady in Sg Wang Plaza where I buy them is pleasant and we have a discussion on what I may or may not like before I select. She's lovely. And my choices have been good except for one....which was the one I insisted on having despite her saying I may not like it. She was right.
6. I've gone back on my word of not buying any more books.( Lack of shelf space).My latest purchase is " Wedding Night" by Sophie Kinsella.
7.June will be a busy month for me. Trip to Melaka for the TB CPG training. ( not sure what I'm suppose to do there will know when I arrive) MIB conference in Jakarta ( poster and talk) and MTS conference in KL. (poster and talk)
8. I got my eyes tested after 10year ++ and changed frame and upgraded to "multifocals". Cost a bomb. Optical 88 in Midvalley megamall is great. I loved the service there and the entire process was enjoyable. No regrets. On the side, them multifocals make reading a little bit easier on the eyes.
9. I cannot get enough of Lays " sour cream crisps" Bad for health I know.
10.I 've gained inches around my waist and need to eat less and jog!

The Melaka Road trip started with me heading to Putra Jaya to collect AJ. And we had breakfast at the local mamak before we braved the traffic to Melaka. Our exit out of Putra Jaya was smooth. I restrained self with difficulty from stepping on the accelerator. Speed trap warnings were never so closely adhered to. We saw two poslicemen 40 minutes into our journey. One was on the left side, and the other was attempting to cross the road with a speed camera gadget.
This Rava Thosai takes nice picture yah? the taste was mediocre. It wasn't crunchy at the dies. Bits of it were already soaked with the gravy. But it was still a good thosai breakfast
I'm just back from a day trip to Melaka. We walked quite a bit and saw parts of Jonker Street we missed during our last visit there. Loads of foreigners walking about and taking pictures of the same things I wanted to take pictures off. Bit of traffic getting into the town, we must have passed 8 traffic lights.
Did you know we have a Hard Rock Cafe in Melaka??? I bought a T-shirt:) And we admired the local decor inside the shop. More pictures soon. That's a promise
I've been ill the last 3 weeks which may explain the great silence on the blog. My usual regime is to blog after my morning jog before going to work. I haven't been jogging for the same period. This nasty flu caused fever, aches and pains, chesty cough and green phlegm. And it leaves you feeling drained. I've only just gotten most of my energy back. Jogging will start next week:)
