It's that time of the year again where my hubby has to go on his annual pilgrimage to USA. We left our baby with my parents at my hometown, so I enjoyed my freedom at home.
The perfect idea of me staying at home would be: after work, go back home and laze on the couch watching Korean dramas all day, while slurping shin ramyeon and downing the occasional Big Mac. Well, I'm so happy that I did manage to get my perfect time at home this time... hahahahahahahaha! There was a US vistor at my office too, so I had been eating full meals at lunch and even skipped thinking of what to eat for dinner.
Let me jot down what I did for a week, and also comment on some new eateries that I managed to try out.
Monday - Had team lunch at Jawi House, Armenian Street. I ordered a lamb briyani. We also chanced on the BBC Indian Summer film crew doing their production at Armenian Street. But the real surprise for me came when I saw the ink painting of Busan's Haedong Yunggung temple hanging in the art gallery upstairs in the restaurant! Dinner - skipped.
Tuesday - Had project lunch with US visitor at Penmutiara Restaurant, Batu Maung. This restaurant is a favourite for us because of its great halal food and proximity to our office. I love its fish head curry. Dinner - skipped.
Wednesday - Had lunch buffet with US visitor at Maritime Waterfront Hotel. It was a RM19.90 lunch buffet. Nothing much to complain about! Had dinner with fellow friends who studied at Korea, at the newly opened BBQ Chicken Restaurant at Elite Heights. We ordered two and a half chickens for five of us. The Paris-style chicken wings was yum, but the olive oil fried chicken was a miss.
Thursday - Just normal zhap fan lunch for a break. Dinner was Mushroom Chicken Maggi Mee.
Friday - Ate lunch at Canton-i in Queensbay Mall. Thank God it's Friday! For dinner, my friend and I initially planned to have dinner and cocktails at Mish Mash, Muntri Street, but it was raining cats and dogs and we couldn't get out of the car. So we parked inside Gurney Paragon and ate Johnny Rockets hamburger and famous milkshake. By the time we finished dinner and shopping, the rain had already stopped, so we did go for those cocktails after all!
Saturday - I went back to my hometown for the weekend. Mamas food is the best!
Sunday - I bought some Groupon vouchers so we ate at Ben's TSG Burgers at Ipoh Parade. We took all three flavours - mushroom, fish and beef. The former two tasted quite nice actually but the beef patty was totally falling apart! Very bad. Totally could not compare to Johnny Rockets.
Monday - Hubby is back from USA! We took leave from work and went to watch Everest at Gurney Plaza. After the movie we ate Honeycreme soft serve icecream with honeycomb at Gurney Plaza basement.
Tuesday - Wednesday is a holiday for hubby! We went for a date night cum 6th anniversary celebration at Yella Fork. Hubs ordered a Pie in The Sky while I ordered Porky Choppy. The potato wedges were sooooo good! We topped it off with a Tiger beer and a glass of red wine. It's affordable Australian cuisine... yum!
8 new restaurants out of 10 restaurants in about a week! That breaks the record, YEAH!!!~
