2011 Birthday @ Lemon Garden, Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur

I made reservations at the Lemon Garden Café @ Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur a few weeks prior to my birthday. I've been planning for this since I got to know about the Shangri-La's 40th Anniversary Facebook offer, yes it's been THAT long...! 

This offer is valid from 1st January  to 32st December 2011, and I think it's an awesome offer which Shangri-La is sharing with their customers. The complimentary meal is only valid on your birthday, and all I had to do was LIKE their Facebook page, register for their 40th Anniversary offer, and make my reservations for my birthday :) The selected F&B outlet, in this case it's Lemon Garden, came back with a confirmation email and also gave me a call 2 days prior to my reservation, to confirm everything. Because of this offer, I got a 50% discount of the buffet :)

Pot of gold, wait for meeeee...!!!
 Food was awesome, so many choices to choose from. From local cuisines to Chinese to Italian to Japanese to Western, guaranteed to fill your hungry tummies. And for a weekday, the café had a good crowd too. I didn't take a lot of pictures, was too busy tucking into the food and just enjoying my birthday :)

Some of the cold dishes available, and much more!

A wide range of desserts to choose from, yums!

Some sort of brownie with raspberry and whipped cream.

Indulging in chocolate fondue and marshmallows ~~~ Screw the calories tonight!

Beggar Chicken @ Bkt Jugra (Tanjung Sepat)

Almost a 2-hour drive to reach this friggin' place. Checked out some blogs which talked about this place, and how it's supposed to be the original beggar chicken cooking style. What do I personally think about it? Nothing great, and definitely not worth the 2-hour drive, meh... By the time we drove back PJ, I was tired and hungry...

The signage, which says beggar chicken something something I guess...?

The brick building on the right is where all the beggar food is cooked.

Yes, this is the kitchen. Your food is underneath all that sand and charcoal.

Huge pile of charcoal for cooking.

Friendly beagle!
All the food is of the same colour. There's beggar chicken and mutton as well, the photos didn't turn out so well.

Friendly kitteh!

The Blue Kombi

A division in the company recently made a unique purchase: A Volkswagen Kombi. The division is still trying to think of ways to put the Kombi to use, and from what I've heard, the vehicle already has a waiting list to be photographed in pre-wedding albums. Not bad for a classic, eh?

Here we go....!
Some of us took a spin in the Kombi recently. Kinda hard to resist not taking a spin. It is after a Volkswagen Kombi :) Think Scooby Doo and friends, except this Kombi is blue, not green. I salute you if you can drive this classic. Manual drive, the steering wheel is similar to that of a mini bus, and no power steering, talk about toning your arms! Overall the Kombi is pretty well kept, except for the missing door handle, some rusty parts, no air-con blower for the back seats, heavy rattling, hard suspension :P But hey, when you get a classic like that, you'd definitely expect to put in some moolah to fix it up.

Now this is my Kombi, a mini Kombi. It's the Milo truck Kombi, from the Milo redemption a couple of months ago. Pretty awesome too! Best thing is, I don't have to drive it, haha!

Not A Full Grip Yet...

On days when I'm feeling crappy like this, it only goes to show that I have yet to fully get a good grip of things. The grip is there, just not as firm as I had hoped for.

Life will always be unfair. Deal with it bitch.

Something that was once beautiful, is now a nightmare for me. I dread it really, even though I've told myself many times over that I will only consider it after a certain deadline next year. I've very clear of what my plans are in the coming months. It's just that on some days, I wake up and feel all woes. GAH!

I appreciate my life to the fullest mind you. It's just that on certain days, I tend to rant and woe a bit more than usual. After a good night's sleep, everything is back to normal for me.

But I guess sometimes... I can't help but feel sorry for myself. I tend to put unnecessary pressure and be hard on myself at times. Part of my strength and weakness at the same time.

I dread it, but a tiny part of me also yearn for it. It was an unjustified occurance for my part, and I know that no matter how much I question it, there won't be an answer for me. And yet, being a stupid human being, I still question it from time to time. I say it's unjustified because I know people in my circle, who have done more harm and put themselves in much higher risks.

I am no longer sure if that is what I want anymore. Right now I don't see much value in it, nor do I see the worth in it. I've been through enough pain to know what it feels like. I don't need to feel the same pain again. I don't want to.

The Black Seal

And I lay me down to sleep... zzzzzz...

A friend pointed out that this is not a seal, but is in fact, a walrus. I stand corrected :)
