Dinner at Sukiya in August. Today.

August will be a crucial month for my family as we make preparations for a new phase in our life. This will be the first time during our time being married, to be apart for a duration of more than 3 days (at least) as Mr Husband will be pursuing his studies in a different state and I will be the sole parent of EE on most weekdays with the aide of my in-laws. Alhamdulilah, for wonderful in- laws.

We try not to be anxious. To be honest –  I think this new adventure would be quite interesting as I am planning my very own ‘5S di rumah bersama Ee’ project whilst Mr Husband is away. I enjoy the idea of giving Mr Husband surprises regarding our cosy little home everytime he comes over for the weekend or holidays be it an inspiring one or just weird.

We try to spend time quality time together despite our busy and hectic schedule both work-related and social obligations. Even if it means just lying down in the same room and falling asleep while Big Hero 6 is on TV. Yes, that is still quality time as our feet tickles each other softly in a very tired manner. Ha ha.

Earlier tonight, we did the extraordinary. We had dinner outside on a weekday night and dined-in instead of the usual tapau. There were not much of a crowd at Aeon today and Ee was at his best behaviour. We had our respective gyudon meals at the Sukiya japanese restaurant – certified as HALAL (feels the urge to inform this before somebody decides to run amok yelling sake!!!)

The beef gyudon with cheese is tasty. So is the teriyaki chicken meal set. I have yet to try Japanese curry and am honestly intrigued to know how it taste like. Watching the japanese people eat their version of curry on TV looks so delicious. Well, maybe next visit. Too much calories in one day.

Ambience was nice. Price was deemed reasonable after a very fulfilling meal. Apparently, they also have promotions on lunch sets daily. Do check it out. Dinner was simple and we managed to gulp it down in less than an hour in between our conversations regarding work and gossips – hence free parking!

We reached home soon enough and my boys were already in Slumberland once their head touches the pillow. zzzZzzz

Sandwiches at Arnor Crepes

I was a woman hungry for a sandwich and headed to a place which I know has a short queue. It has been a terrible call + shift the night before and because I had only MYR 2 in my purse I couldn’t buy at least a simple nasi lemak from the cafe for my postcall breakfast. So I ate the in-house hospital food – porridge. Unfortunately there was not a single spoon in the pantry hence I resorted to just ‘drink’ the porridge from the bowl and prayed hard no one would see. So I was glad when I could finally punch out and grab lunch. At Arnor Crepes, AEON.

In fact, when I arrived there was not a single soul standing at the counter to order its so called famous crepes. I was honestly feeling grateful, perhaps to a certain extent, sensing a surge of joy knowing that I wouldn’t have to wait ‘long’ for my order to be done.

From a different perspective, I was also feeling ‘sorry’ for Arnor Crepes as it was competing with other giants who also knows their sandwiches. Like VIVO and SUBWAY – at that same place. I couldn’t help wondering how many customers did they had for the day. It was after all lunch hour but everybody else seems to be flogging someplace else. I was curious, what are they eating for the day. Ouh.. there’s a bee line outside Sushi King. And KFC. And a fullhouse at VIVO and SUBWAY.

It is wishful thinking I have to say, to even imagine that my purchase of the day would be the reason for this particular sandwich stall to keep doing what they’re doing here. That they would not be disheartened and sacrifice my desire to have their sandwiches by relocating someplace else where its more profitable. Thus would it be selfish of myself though to not share the goodness of this place just so I can have my short queue forever and ever? Ha ha.

The sandwich set was reasonably priced at MYR 9.90 . It includes a nice 6 inch sub and a cup of sealed iced green tea. The sauce was generous , so was the meat. The salad was plenty and heaped to the max. What more could I ask for right? An alternative sandwich for everybody!
