MIA for 10 days?

Warning : long post ahead with lots of mouth-watering pics ^_^

Well i'm sure by now to all of you who reads my blog, when i do not have any updates it will only mean 2 things.. either i'm not in town (traveling) OR i'm too busy with my hubby! :p

It has been 10 days since russ came back home and today he went off again.. he was not supposed to come back home as the job in indonesia hasn't finish yet.. BUT coz of the engine failure on the vessel he was on, he was sent home early.. now he's on another vessel and he'd be sailing back to indonesia to finish the job.. he'd be back in a month or so.. hopefully in time for his b'day *fingers crossed*

Anyway, since we still haven't gotten our car back, he rented a waja from the airport to get us around :) we went out practically almost everyday.. coz he knows that i stayed at home for too long and i deserve to be out shopping, watching movies and having nice dinners.. WITH him! :)

We went to 1U, cathay cineleisure, ikano, pavilion and not to forget.. window shopping at sunway industrial area! to those car enthusiasts, you know where i'm talking about.. yeah, that's right.. N1 racing, links, podium, JFA, racing fit, ST wangan and etc..

On the 2nd day when my bb was back, we went to pavilion.. as usual i told him that i wanted to shop but at the end, didn't get to buy anything.. but we did had THE MOST fulfilling delicious mouth watering yummiest best-est (oh well, you get the idea) lunch.. it was our 2nd time eating at 'Italian On Sixth'..

It's on the upper most floor in pavilion.. to be honest, it's a fine dining restaurant and it's quite pricey..

Look at the pictures and you'd know why it's worth every cent!

The kitchen

Our soups (mushroom & seafood spicy tomato)

Prawn appetizer

Our main course

My seafood aglio olio

My bb's medium rare tenderloin + goose liver

I am NOT a steak person.. in fact, coz of my religion i can't eat beef.. but f*ck it.. this tenderloin is f*cking awesome!! it just melted in my mouth.. it's SO soft and tender.. you might ask, how much is it? well... it's about RM100.. yea i know, it's expensive BUT trust me.. this is THE steak that you would not regret paying for!

So, the total damage for lunch was... RM250+.. or was it lesser? hmmmm....

For those who is still skeptical of forking out that much money just for a steak, here are some reviews on this restaurant :) besides good tenderloin, good service, it'd be a good place for a romantic dinner for two.. bet they serve good quality wines too ;)

Next shopping mall which we went was 1Utama.. they already has the christmas decor up :-

My bb was too busy trying to get online with my phone

Okay, besides eating italian (which is my fav) we had jap (which is my bb's fav) too.. before watching new moon, we had our dinner at 'Sushi Zanmai'.. it was our 2nd time eating at sushi zanmai.. the 1st time was at sunway pyramid together with nezuka-san and remus (after nezuka did some tuning on the road with the beast)..

Anyways, japanese isn't my fav actually.. coz the first time i had sushi was years ago.. my aunt bought it from jusco.. i hate the vinegar in the rice.. BUT this time, it's super duper niceeeeee! i wouldn't mind going for jap again! :)

When i suggested jap, my bb was supeeeeeeeeeer happy.. as he hasn't eaten jap for a long time.. since.. since we came back from london (which is months ago).. we had jap in london and it was expensive.. due to the exchange rate =.="

We were lucky not to have to queue up for a table at sushi zanmai.. most of the time, the queue will be damn long.. maybe coz we were there early :p hehe..

When we opened the menu, we were like 'whoa! i want that.. and that.. and that and that'.. we ended up ordering at least 6 dishes from the menu.. NOT including the sushi that my bb had..

Baby octopus (my bb's fav)

Sushi with soft shell crab (ended up having 2 plates)

Look at the people queuing up at the background

Scallops in teriyaki sauce

Cod fish

Terriyaki skewed chicken

Lobster teppanyaki

Soft shell crab with egg

Besides having nice good expensive food, we had McD, KFC, wan tan mee, chicken rice, keoy teow soup, steam boat, old town and etc..

I asked my bb the other day when we were in pavilion.. if he took any of his ex-gfs/ girls he dated for fine dining.. he said no.. he told me that he didn't have much money last time and when he ate, it's just to fill his stomach.. he have never enjoy food before..

Due to his job and being on a vessel, there's not much choice when it comes to food.. he has to eat whatever it's cooked by the chef onboard.. and he doesn't have much time to sit down and eat his meal properly.. most of the time, he'd run to the galley and take away his food so that he can eat at his work station.. as he doesn't have anyone to relieve him when he eats.. even there is, he doesn't like to be away for too long.. as he's always worried about the divers..

So, when he's back we'd always go out to eat.. and we'd go grocery shopping so that i can cook and make half boil eggs for him everyday.. with coffee.. he's easy to please when it comes to food.. i don't have to be a very good chef.. he'd eat anything i cooked but as long as it's not vege.. i can fried a pot of rice and he'd eat it all day! :) he's not fussy at all.. don't have to cook 3 dishes and make soup.. i'm so lucky, huh? hahaha...
