Delicious: A Once In A Blue Moon Visit

A couple of weeks back, a few friends of mine (CY & Eve), Babe and myself decided to try the new Delicious restaurant in Straits Quay, Penang.

I have heard of the one in KL but it's the first in Penang so I guess it's worth the try. :)
I was kinda fascinated by the indoor decorations but too bad I didn't capture any photo :( .
But the first impression didn't last very long because no waiter was free to take our orders!
Not too sure why but it didn't only happen to our table, I saw other patrons having the same frustration, too!

Nonetheless, we managed to get the attention of a cute waiter and placed our orders immediately.
Bah, the food took quite long to reach us.
Anyway, here's what we ordered thatt day:


English Fish & Chips: RM29.90



I forgot what Eve ordered :S The dessert kinda suck though.


Shepherds Pie: RM19.90


Some marshmallow chocolate thingy. Can't remember the price but I initially thought it was a fondue until it turned out to be a glass of hot chocolate with marshmallows inside. :S

Red Velvet Cupcake: RM6.90. Me no likey. Too dry. But I'm not too sure how a red velvet cake should taste like though.


Traditional Beef Meatballs Spaghettini: RM19.90


The spaghetti was a LEGEND.
It was the first meatballs spaghettini WITHOUT a single chunk of meatballs.
When it came, I was wondering where they were hiding the meatballs, I even thought they might have chopped it so fine and mixed the small bits together with the spaghetti sauce but no!
When we decided that there was something wrong with the spaghetti, Babe enquired one of the waiters and he went to check with the kitchen.
It turned out that they FORGOT to put meatballs in my poor spaghettini. :(

After a while, the same waiter came out with a bowl of meatballs!

My meatballs! I think they gave extra. Heehee.

So that sums up what we had in Delicious for lunch.
I was rather disappointed because of the poor service but it's probably still new, so maybe in time they'll get better.
Nonetheless, it's rather PRICEY for someone like me who has just joined the rat race...so I'll only visit it once in a blue moon!

With CY & Eve.

Babe!

Today's topic is about getting out of your comfort zone.
And when I say comfort zone, I actually mean the zone which I have never left since I was born.
I guess you pretty much understand what I'm talking about now.

I knew long time ago that one day I will have to grow up, leaving this place I call home, to become a career woman, a wife, a mother etc.
But I never thought that this day will come so soon.
I have chosen this path, not knowing where it will lead me to.
The only thing I'm certain of is that the one person whom I have given my heart to will be there every single step I will be taking from next month onwards.
Which is something I'm very thankful for.

But like they say, when you receive, you'll have to give.
I will no longer have the privilege of having my mum preparing breakfast for me, buying/cooking me food, shopping, watching tv....crap, talking about this is making me tear up.
All in the name of having a better life in the future.

But what defines better life?
Is your life better when you are away from the people you have known for the rest of your life?
Will your future be better by earning more money?
Will the man you know for almost a decade give you the life you wanted after choosing this path?
Who will be your shopping partner?? -okay, maybe that's not that important but still...-

I have no definite answers to that.

All I know is no one can tell you which is right or wrong.
But what I can do is when it's wrong, I'll try to make it right.
When I fall, I will have to stand up on my own this time.
I will learn how to cook better, do more house chores and have a better lifestyle.

I know I can make a change.
A change for the better.

Time to grow up, CL.

Random Days In My Life

Taken at some Japanese food outlet in Gurney Plaza.

~So long I have gone, to the arms of whom I belong...

Okay, that's completely random.
Aloha! *chokes on imaginary blog dust*
I haven't been blogging, AGAIN!!
Not that anybody actually cares but my Nuffnang account.. :P

Actually I did try to blog a few times, you'd be surprised at the number of 'Untitled Post' I have under the draft section.
I just ran out of blog juices everytime I start typing a line or two...
But today's exceptional because it's a Saturday and Babe's in KL this weekend so I'm too free!
Was thinking of catching up with work but waking up too early on a Saturday morning doesn't really make me feel like doing any work related stuff.

And because this is random...I've got random things to mention about!

#1 Went down to KL for 2 days with my family and Babe....like crazy hectic!
      I don't like it whenever I had to spend like only 1 or 2 days in KL cos' you      pretty much can't do anything!


Our first picture together with Petronas Towers!

#2 Bought my first Majolica Majorca lipgloss! Was sold the first time I saw it...and best of all, I bought it at RM21. Usual price is RM33. Thanks to my Watsons points! Whee! :)

 BE706 if you're interested. :) Owh, this photo looks quite out of place because of its frame.I'm fickle like that. :P


This is how the gloss looks like on my lips.


#3 Went for a hotel stay under my company's sponsorship! Amazing isn't it, I only joined full time for a month and a half, I already received my first bonus and free company trip! :D

At Hydro Hotel. Dress, belt and hair clip belong to my sis. Only the bag and camera are mine!! :P

#4 Chilled out with the girls (and Babe who was being very thoughtful that day :)) at Straits Quay! I'm probably banning that place for a good few weeks.



Well, hmm..what else to share.......pretty much nothing else!
Yes, unfortunately my life isn't that happening.

Will be back with more!
Come to think of it, I still haven't finished blogging about my Paris and London trip (I refuse to call it Europe trip because it's only like 2 countries out of the entire Europe)!
