Fifteen Days of Almost All of the Seven Deadly Sins

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, pride

Let's see, lust is of course does not necessarily refer to erotic lust. The lust for yee sang is just as evil, (alilfatmonkey, take note), just as the reverend mother told Maria, the love between a man and a woman is holy too, to love this man does not mean you love God any less.

Gluttony, need I say more. Forcing in that last morsel of abalone because it comes round to our humble households but once a year... despite the fact that one now needs a shoe horn and buttered hips to get into one's jeans.

Greed....oooh, the banker's luck is down, let's increase our bets fivefold, from RM10 to RM50. A

Wrath ..... pickcher, PIKcher, PIKCHER, AAAAAAAAARGH, NO PICKCHER, AAAAAAAARGHHHHH, BANKER DOUBLE ACE.....RM150 down!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAARGH.

Sloth .... gym? No need la, gamble only once a year, sit down sit down, eat eat, eat more ya.

Envy ....barggger, you sit down oni you got my black jack. Blardy foool....that was MINE, you hear, MINE.

Pride ..... Wah, check out my waistline, bigger than yours leh. OR, Wah, I so clever, up the stake when banker bust hor...

And to make things WORSE, we had TWO public holidays, both long weekends, to exacerbate the situation. Hindraf, I rue the day you made Thaipusam into a FT holiday. Because of that I added another unwanted 1kg. Oh, however, I did lose my gasing hill virginity that Monday morning.

Check out that picture of the pig's innards!!! Aitelyu, damn choon la. Friend bought it from OUG Market, where its only sold on Mondays. Aiyo, people don't need to work meh, sell on Monday. Chis bedebah. A champage cork acts as a paperweight for the money, which in turn sits on the two cards. All that's missing is a condom packet to complete the ring of iniquity. Single malts to while away the afternoon....

Photobucket
Home made lap mei fan and siu yoke noodles, (not my home)......ah, distant dreamy look....

And finally, to end it all, the fifteen debaucherous days, is chap gourmet....

Venue, Fortuna Palace in Kajang Prima..... anyone with half an eye couldn't miss it. It screams to you from the road.

Photobucket

One last kopek, at the communal tossing of yee sang. Beyonce rules.....

Photobucket

The four seasons, (not the cake), which was okay, but not particularly memorable.

Photobucket

Oooh, that incriminating piece of evidence.

Photobucket

This nam yue roast chicken actually tasted better than it looks. The red coloring gives it a rather "food sacrificed on the altar" kinda feeling, and it looked a tad dry, but well, since I went for the non-breast sections, it was actually rather good.

Photobucket

Ah, steamed pomfret, my favourite. Dare I say it in Cantonese again? Tai tou chong? Tou Tai chong? Ah, what the heck, TTC for short.

Photobucket

Chilli prawns, in the same kinda gravy that you'd get chilli crabs, AND the fried mantous to soak up the sauce. The gravy was rather good with the oily mantous.


Photobucket


Photobucket

Vegetables with abalone mushroom.....twas alright....

Photobucket

Mmmm, I loved this noodles. Only gripe is, not enough noodles. Too much ingredients. The noodles were springy and firm. Nothing worse than starchy pudgy noodles.

Photobucket

Phew, got that out of the way, now we can finally move on with our lives.

By the way, the restaurant has many private rooms, fully equipped with karaoke. The proportion of Chinese songs to English is 5:1..... so if you are a banana, I suggest bringing your own magic mike or dvds.....

Prices seemed quite reasonable. For a table of 14 adults, and 6 kids, the bill if I am not mistaken came up to slightly over RM800.

jared, i actually dropped by godiva at pavilion some weeks ago, and was hemming and hahing snooping around to see if i could spot you. it was a saturday night i think, shortly after you started there. but i didnt see anyone that resembled u...and it was already closing time.

thule a.k.a leo said...

lol.. dun tell her this but she doesn't really like her husband (me) drink alcohol... plus she's pregnant now so can't touch alcoholic stuff.
You should have seen the look on her face everytime my friends ask me for drinking session. Initially I was like... don't care la... but then I don't want her to feel unhappy. My child is coming out soon... so...
But I'll be back!!!!

Precious Pea said...

What a feast to end Chap Gourmet! Yes, this CNY is so cool especially with all the long weekends. Making me very 'not-in-the-mood' to work. This CNY is especially fruitful to me cos I finally learn how to play mahjong. FYI, there is a mahjong table permanently placed at my bedroom now. hehehee!

fatboybakes said...

oooh, precious pea, mahjong table in your bedroom.... whatEVER are you doing on it dear girl??? is "mahjong" an euphemism for ahem ahem...you know, nudge nudge wink wink.... aiyo, this CNY only learnt ah?! how long married liao?

anw4ever99 said...

wow...nice food

The Duo Dishes said...

Really need to book a flight to Malaysia for good eats like that.

Eunice said...

All those public holidays left me feeling like a bum. hahaha. I heard that's not a particularly admirable quality, darn it! Wasted throwing all those oranges in our bathtub on chape gourmet.

At least though, we got rid of them. And gramma won't force us to eat the rottening things in two months haha!

Eh that food looks good like xiao. My personal tastebuds will pick up the crunchy stuff in the yeesung, some four seasons (so good engrish right!), pomfrett, mushrooms and NOODLES! issit just me or do the mantous look like french loaves?!

Nic (KHKL) said...

that piece of evidence looks like a tentacle of an alien crawling out of a crashed and flipped UFO...lol!
