I have been a bad blogger.
Good bloggers would religiously download their photos and blog about a trip they just came back from almost immediately after coming home. Also, good bloggers would be snapping pictures here and there and everywhere. Pictures of just about every interesting and not-so-interesting thing that they see. Well, maybe I’ve just lost it. But I like to think that I was having way too much fun to remember snapping pics. Excuses? 😛
I’ve been dead tired since we got back from our Damansara getaway over the weekend, so much so that my hubby even pestered me as to why I have not blogged about the trip. Well, anyway, here are some bits and pieces of it.
We made a routine stop in Bidor for the famous and overpriced duck drumstick mee. This time, I ordered the dry version, which actually tasted better because the duck drumstick soup remained concentrated and in addition, I could still savor the taste of the wan ton mee, sans wan ton. Here’s another view of the duck drumstick showcasing the skin and how big the piece was. Yummy! For the record, I drank up every bit of the soup 🙂
We stayed at Royale Bintang Damansara yet again. Well actually it’s a funny thing I mentioned Damansara specifically… I made an appointment with someone on Monday and she was waiting for me in Royale Bintang KL! Anyways, dinner on the first night was at Italiannies, The Curve with my brother, my SIL and my little nephew Collin.
This here was the strawberry colada I ordered. Initially I wanted to order the strawberry shake and I inquired why it was more expensive than the rest of the shakes. The server disappeared for a mo, and came back to tell me it was because the strawberries used were imported ones. Well anyhoo, I decided on the colada instead. Another funny thing happened. I asked the server what was in the strawberry colada and he told me to wait just a moment while he referred to his notes! And it was done all right in front of me! It was a good drink, by the way.
It certainly seems to me that every time I make a trip to KL, I’d be stuffing myself silly with food. We had Japanese buffet lunch the next day at Shogun 1-Utama. It must be affiliated with Saisaki because the plates had the Saisaki logo on it too. The spread was huge, although funnily enough it wasn’t the sashimi that got top marks, but the soups they had. Sharks’ fin, black chicken with chinese wine, clam soup…well, let’s just say it was truly filling.
This is the jazz quartet that serenaded the passers-by who visited the flea market at The Curve. Not sure who hired them, but man, they were good. I had a good mind to start dancing then and there. And I really loved the way they blended into the environment too. Al fresco dining with jazz in the background…who could ask for more? Of course, when I had that mini blogger meeting with Rinnah, Paris, Pinkelle and Beetrice in MarchÃ©, we couldn’t hear the music la. 😛
Anyway, this is the last of my pictures, but it’s really one of the best tomyam soups I have ever tasted. We decided to have Thai food for dinner at Absolute Thai in Ikano Power Center and I have no regrets whatsoever. Succulent prawns and seafood, with just the right hint of spiciness, I totally dug that!
So that’s the lowdown on my holiday last weekend…and I am already looking forward to what this coming weekend holds!
