1. Home (but) sick
Was home last weekend to see my parents and my dog but I fell sick the very next day.

'Count yourself lucky that you fall sick when you are home', said my mum.

Am still on medication now, apparently the penicillin and my sickness made me slept throughout the whole weekend.

2. Spring cleaning

Was doing spring cleaning last weekend and found pile of photos and albums.

Come to think bout it, you were gone for quite some time but it feels just like yesterday.

Is it me missing you or you missing me? The world doesn't seem to be the same to me anymore.

3. Family gathering

Was asked to join the family gathering last weekend after missing-in-action for 3 months.

My grandma is still cute as ever with the same pattern everytime we meet.

As expected, the hug always follows with the same question.
'So, when are you getting married?'

4. Fukuya @ Bangsar, Jalan Ara.

Was there (finally) last weekend having heard bout the positive feedback on their Kaiseki 8 course lunch set, affordably priced at RM 52.

Served course-by-course, the lunch set came with 8 different dishes. Regrettably, I was quite sick when having the meal. Bar none, I still think that it is a pretty good deal at this kind of pricing. Well done to the chef as the ingredients used were very fresh, coupled with the right seasoning and cooking time, a revisit for their 8 course meal is a definite.

First course: Appetizer

Second course: Clam Soup

Third course: Sashimi

Fourth course: Grilled Salmon

Fifth course: Softshell crab

Sixth course: Yu Tofu

Seventh course: Somen

Eighth course: Dessert
Too bad I don't find the dessert appealing, unlike other floggers who were being served lavender ice-cream during their visit, what I had was flat and super chewy mochi with crushed peanuts.

5. You

On our way back, I told you,

'If I was to categorise people whom I have met so far into two groups, they have to be people whom I wish I never met before in my life and people whom I couldn't feel more grateful in knowing them even though it's a mere acquaintance'

For that I thank you for all the memories and joys that we have shared.

Thanks for bringing out the best in me.

It almost sounds like you're cursing someone, O Honorary Lifetime Member of the JFKA. I love the kaiseki here, though...too bad about the mochi...the lavender ice cream was to die for. As for friends...yeah, some are keepers. :-)

Kok said...

Wish you a speedy recovery. Maybe like your mum said, it's better to fall sick when you're back home. At least, there's someone taking care of you.

Take care there.

:p no lar, am not cursing anyone. The kaiseki was great, thx for the recommendation. Too bad i didnt get to try the lavender ice cream but there is always next time :)

cokeworld citizen:
But it is 8 course meal lar. Worth the price i wld say. Lol...the serving of the softshell crab is abit pathetic lah.
And the makan buddy? He just declared no more jap food in the next 30 days, thx to his jap food posts for one whole month.

yeap, great value for that 8 course meal. Mizu is next in my wishlist :)

Thx :) I think i fell sick bcus of the hectic trip back. The customs was packed with crazy crowd. I almost pengsan in the crowd.

will do. thx for dropping by.

Agree. Time will heal. Ice cream might speed up the healing process. Time to indulge :p

yalor, i was expecting throughout the whole course just for that ice cream. Come to think bout it, i havent had my fave hokkaido ice cream for a long time already.

I didn't enjoy it thoroughly, thx to my sickness loh. Will revisit when im well :)
