Actually I am really bad. I keep forgetting to bring my camera. Had lunch with the lovely duo, Lemongrass and Boolicious recently, (with LL's colleague), at House and Co, ....but I guess I've already blogged about the food there. And whenever I go to Zipangu, I also forget.
Anyway, last Sunday, I was at Kluang Station, and the only reason I had the camera with me was because I needed it in church earlier. And unlike Jackson Kah, and others who has the patience to take pics of every course at wedding dinners, I took one pic of the starter, and forgot about the rest totally. The wedding banquet food at the Concorde, Kuala Lumpur, is actually fairly decent.
See the plump juicy scallops there? Not bad at all huh, for a wedding dinner.
On Sunday, I braved the mad jams and traffic to meet with friends at Ikano power centre. Despite conflicting reviews, I've always had fond memories of Kluang Station, as in, the REAL station, in Kluang, where I spent many a happy time drinking their aromatic local coffee, with their roti bakar, sandwiching thick slabs of real SALTED butter, and kaya. [breaking into song....THOSE WERE THE DAYS MY FRIEND, WE THOUGHT THEY'D NEVER END]....
But ya, when I first walked past the place, on the way to Ikea, you'd think they were giving away free bread in a land struck by famine. Long long queue. But since we had to backtrack, (after meeting friends in Ikea and walking back to cross the skybridge to go Curve), a table suddenly became available at Kluang Station so .....
The nasi lemak was adequate. I won't say its outstandingly good, but decent, and really, nothing to complain about. The fried chicken that cost RM4.50 a piece (for the Maryland) is rather good. Crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside, well seasoned.
Godma had the Kluang Laksa, which uses some type of Lai Fun. The soup was aromatic and tasty enough.
Meanwhile, has anyone noticed how ridiculously expensive fruits are? Even local fruits, like Pomelos, cost an arm and a leg. In some places, I've seen pomelos for RM12 and above, and it's probably 40% skin.
But sometimes, I can't resist the urge to sink my teeth into a succulent, luscious, juicy, peach. There's something so peachy about peaches, they just call out to me from the supermarket aisles. In Bangsar village, I've seen peaches costing close to RM10 each. Anyway, after baking 6 cakes yesterday, I thought I'd give myself a treat, and bought two of these babies, from Cold Storage. Bad news for Devon clotted cream fans. The price has gone up from 18.90 a jar to 22 something. Bl**** ringgit.
So, to end this completely uninformative and useless post, I present my peach. It was disappointing. Half of it was dry-ish....... bah humbug. Plus the RM3.52 I paid for parking, at BSC....(was wandering around with the kids)..... I'd say it was 5.99 ill spent. Pah.
