Shook!

As you all know, I am damn emo 'cause my family is going to Taiwan this Saturday without me. Their trip also coincides with the weekend that I will be back in KL. -_-

And my reassurances to myself that --never mind, I will just spend more time with the boyfriend then-- gets flung out of the window 'cause he will be working like a dog this weekend rushing for deadlines. So essentially, I will be alone. T_T

So can you blame me that:

Jing: i am very happy, i bought a trench coat today!!
Me: for taiwan is it.. T__T
Jing: :( Yaa... 'Cause taiwan has typhoon now.. so it is quite cold... :(
Me: i hope the wind blow until all your hair drop out WTFF
Me: 'cause i am bitter.. T__T


:D




Haha, in actual fact, I am being a very good sport about the whole thing. The fact that my sister just told me that my mom said they might bring me to Hokkaido next year helped wtf. I am so nice that I discuss with Jing what to wear in Taiwan:

Me: what are you going to wear!!!
Jing: i dunno.. T___T
Jing: i googled 'what to wear in Taiwan' and this came up... T__T



Photobucket

HAHAHHAHAHA!



***************************************


I feel like blogging about food now, 'cause I am hungry wtf.


This meal is very meaningful. *big shiny eyes*
'Cause I treated the boyfriend with my first pay! :)))


We made it a fancy dinner out-- complete with dressing up and the works. Dressing up on my part, and the usual for him wtf.
It's so sad to be male!! No chance to primp yourself up. *brimming with sympathy wtf*



Photobucket
We went to Shook! in Starhill Gallery! :)


Haihh, must post up picture of us first to sustain your interest, 'cause I know if you all see food pictures you will just stop reading wtf.
Seriously, do you all read my food posts. T__T





Shook!'s interior.
Please pardon the fact that it looks like a gentlemen's bar in the second picture wtf.




Bird's eye view!
I took great risks on the escalator to snap this picture k. *grave*



Of our amazing culinary adventure:



Adventurer and adventuress. :P




On the house: thinly sliced bread with an amazing tomato dip which looks like sambal.




The boyfriend: Like that also want to take picture ar???


Why he doesn't know me well enough wtf.





Starter: snow mountain prawns or something like that.


This platter cost RM59-- when I first read the menu, I thought there was going to be like 50 prawns wtf.
There were only FIVE prawns. T___T


But before you all express disbelief and shock, do hear me out!! THEY WERE THE NICEST PRAWNS I HAVE EVER EATEN!!!
It was just supposed to be pan fried prawns with mayonnaise and walnuts or something like that, but omg! I can't even begin to describe how good it was! So good that I felt like ordering a 2nd plate. And a 3rd plate. :O






My grilled spring chicken.


I know, of all the things to order right. -_-
But Shook! has the thickest menu you will ever see-- it resembles a Tax Law textbook. =/ And when I am faced with too many choices, I crumble wtf. So I ended up with a boring and safe option.
(that, and the fact that even a simple plate of Cantonese fried noodles would cost RM68 =/).


But I have to give the restaurant a thumb's up though-- even for such a common dish, it was very well done! Tender and very very flavorful, with a really delicious BBQ/salsa sauce of some sort... Bravo. :)




Aglio Olio linguine with fried king prawns.


The boyfriend made an excellent choice with this one! But thank god he was the one who ordered it me, not me-- 'cause I would never be able to navigate my way around those nasty giant prawn heads. T_T


Anyway, the meal cost me about RM200-ish, and I think it is easily one of the most expensive meals I have paid for myself. However, I would say that the food of Shook! was excellent, and that is saying a lot, for I am a fussy, fussy eater. ;) I won't be going there anytime soon, purely because I need to recuperate from that costly meal-- but for all it's worth, it was money well-spent. :) So if you're looking for somewhere with quiet ambience (minus the annoying lounge singer at Starhill's lobby) and very good food, think no further. ;)

One more thing... While I was looking for Shook!'s details-- I came across Starhill Gallery's site-- and I like the French song that is played! So cheery and happy! Anyone knows what song it is? :)))





We then proceeded to Haagen Daaz for dessert! :)
Just to clarify-- I am a Baskin Robbins girl through and through. Haagen Daaz ice cream doesn't taste as nice!! *challenging*




I looked like I have a giant cleavage in the middle of my dress. -_-




Our cookie special sundae.

Which sucked. :(((
It sounded so delicious in the menu-- cookies & cream ice cream and cookie chunks and chocolate sauce...
But the cookies were actually just Chipsmore cookies. Wtf???

Not even Oreos! BOOOOO.
We even asked for extra cookies, so I felt ultra cheated. :(
Cookies & cream ice cream + Chipsmore biscuits is just wrong. :(((


I think this cost us almost RM30!! So don't order this ok, guys!





Mega blink jewel earrings!


And I think I look kind of young here. *shy*
Aah, I let you all in into a secret! Sometimes when I go out, those aunties (selling drinks or cleaning tables wtf) will call me 'xiao mei mei', which translates to 'little girl'!! And I will be cheering gaily inside wtf.






Remember mentioned that I am cancelling my leave for the Hari Raya Haji period, and thus will be staying back in S'pore? Well, not all is lost, 'cause the boyfriend will be coming down! :D :D :D

Okok, I musn't get too excited, 'cause he is really busy, but he said there is an 80% chance of it happening.
SO YOU ALL MUST ALL HELP ME PRAY DAY AND NIGHT OK!! :))))








And I will bve going for a pool party this weekend! Am kind of nervous, 'cause Julie, the birthday girl, plans to get 2 bottles of Jack Daniels, 2 bottles of vodka, 2 bottles of Chivas---for a party of 15 people. -____-

The pool is filled wth alcohol wan is it! -_______________-

And how to lose a tummy in 3 days!!!!!!

The title means "I don't want to work", it's the CUTEST song ever!

Some of the lyrics:
I don't want to work, I want to always forget and smoke (wtf)

And then something about the sunlight through my window or something. Sorry, my French too cacat to decipher all. Lol.



About the leggings, Bin is planning to find something similar and she'll let you know. :)

Haha, if you need company you can call me! We can check out Bijou bazaar or something although I have no idea where it is T.T and Jing said the last sale at Replacement there were mostly only online boutiques.
