Jln2 jadi gile Pt 3 (Semi-gile at A'famosa & Dinner at Taragon)

Woohooo!!! Part 3! Finally.... hehe... well after eating heavenly cakes, we went jalan2 at A'famosa. At this point we were super tired.... So we weren't so crazy here.....


Cara jalan pun nampak penat... haha...


Tired smiley faces.....

Then we went up.... hohoho major torture.....


Panjat, jangan x panjat.....



Sempat lagi posing....


Finally reached the top! yay!!!


Happy tired faces....

Then we took pictures with some awesome looking batu2...






After enjoying the view on the top of the hill, then we walked to Taragon for our dinner....



At Taragon

Of all the places to have dinner, why did we choose Taragon? Well we actually came here with the intension to discuss with Mr. Alvin (the manager) about the reunion dinner that we will be having at the end of December.

The gals n I came here before, n we were quite pleased with the first impression that Taragon presented to us. During our first visit, the food was quite good & the treatment that Mr.Alvin gave us was quite pleasent. When we told him that we wanted to do a reunion dinner there, he brought us upstairs to take a look at the private room which is perfect for us to have our reunion dinner. But that time we weren't so sure about how many people who will be attending the reunion, so we told him that we would definately come back and confirm with him again.

So then here we are again at Taragon. Hoping to have a nice dinner & also confirm with them about our reunion dinner.

So, as usual we ordered our drinks first. Ee lin & Pav shared a pot of chinese tea... while Kim & I ordered Fresh Orange Juice.... but Kim requested no sugar for hers....

OK.... drinks order taken, few minutes later, our order arrived.... weee~ happy nye dapat air.....


Here is Kim's Order.... Fresh Orange without sugar.....



N here is mine.... Fresh Orange with sugar....



Can u spot the difference?




For those who didnt notice, Kim's drink got garnish on it... while mine doesn't. Padahal we both ordered the same drink just that hers is without sugar.... Fine, u ppl might say that I am trippin for such a small matter... but SERIOUSLY if nak differentiate to see which 1 has sugar or not, must u put 1 glass with "special" garnish & the other one doesnt have any at all? When I was a bartender, I differentiate the drink based on the straw, or the position of the glass when you place it on the tray.... Use your brain lah! If u wanna differentiate by using the garnish pon, at least put a slice of orange on it to make it presentable....

And how come during our visit previously, when all of us ordered juice, there was no garnish at all? Kim ordered no sugar as welll but still no garnish. This shows that this place is inconsistent. N u just wait & see.... this doesnt stop here....

To be honest I was quite pissed about tis.... but I guess I was too tired to go hurricane about it... So I just let it slide & just wait for my food to come....

So we waited & after few minutes, our food came.



Ee Lin's Fish & Chips


Pav's Chicken Chop.... too dry for me...


A'famosa Grilled Chicken with Mushroom Sauce... Not bad...


Taragon Dory Fish


So why did I chose this dish? Well previously Kim ordered this & I did gave it a try. Tasted good back then. So this time why not order it. N so I did.... but unfortunately it didnt taste as good as before. Again lack of consistency.... & its not just about the taste but also the presentation of the food.... Lemme just show u why....


See the lemon? its dry.... dunno how many days punye lemon...


The salad.... looks yellowish.... first I thought it was the dim light... but after tasting it, its definately sayur yg layu....


Then look at wat we found on Ee Lin's plate.... More layu sayur.... Letuce dah kuning2 pun nak letak on d plate? Tsk tsk....


So 2nd time here at Taragon, we aren't so impressed. Maybe we're just tired and our brain wasn't functioning well... but it doesn' explain the no garnish on my drink, & also my fish wasnt as good as before.... well or maybe the people there have somthin against me.... tat's why everything I got was crappy.... Hish! DISCRIMINATION!!!


ANYWAYZ, after we payed for our not so good dinner, we approached Mr. Alvin to discuss about our reunion dinner. Then we sat down in a table & start our discussion. We chose the food, the venue, & total pax who are attending. Then he started talking big about having 1 barrel of beer then he'll have 1 of his staff to pump the beer for us (as if we can't do it ourselves), invite a singer to sing for us, decorations & bla bla bla..... so discussion is over... he took my number & email to confirm about the price per person... he needed to discuss with his chef first... and then he will call me in a week or so.... So we were like OK, hope 2 hear from u soon. N that was 14 October 2010....


Today at 8 November 2010, stil no call or email from the dude.... Seriously.... WTF!!!! So very unprofessional... how long does it takes to "discuss" with your chef leh? 1 month??? Yeah I know that 16 pax is such a small number, but we are giving business pun lu tak mao? Bloody hell! Think your restaurant soo good meh? Ranked at number 5 on Tripadvisor... Pui!!! Wait till i write a review about it.... MUAHAHAHAHA!!! You just messed with the wrong person... ever heard about word of mouth advertising? Studies shows that it is the most effective advertising method.... hehehe... siap lah u...


Well screw u.... U dont want our business? FINE! I have another place.... the place where I originaly wanted to have our reunion dinner there but my frenz doesnt seem to fancy the place... but now the decison is final... Venue settled... I wish u all the best Taragon... u'll be needing it...

So, 14 October 2010.... Its 1 hell of a crazee day.... at the end of the day we were all soo soo tired.... But we had TONS of fun.... Basically eat, pray love.... XD Eat: LOADS OF FOOD... Pray: at the temple ^__^ and Love: well no hot guys involved, just the the LOVE of friendship that we had between us.... AWWwwww.... hahaha....

Anywayz here are the penat & very kenyang faces at the end of the day....

Pav looks like she wants 2 kill someone....

Sleepy..... zzzz....

Tired...

Tired+Sleepy+Pissed Off+Disgusted with the calamari....

So thats it for our crazee day.... will there be another 1 soon? My cat's instinct says HELL YEAH!!! haha.... but dunno when... hehehe.... so tats all from me....

Jalan2 jadi gile... Pt 2 (At the temple, Jonker88, Nadeje& many other places)

Muahaha part 2! Tension betol upload gambar..... nasib baik x bz sgt... hehe....Anywayz after the beach we went to our next destination... TEMPLE!!!!...... seriously, we went to the temple.... it started off as a joke, but then bile2 pikir2 balik all the sins that I've done, bagus lah jugak go temple.... hehehe....

But of course at the temple we still sempat nak cam-whore

"Budak Baik"

Kim showing Pav how to bakar the incense

Ee Lin praying to the Dewa Buku (I think) coz she just finished her exams

While waiting for her the crazee 3 of us pegi jalan2 arnd the temple....

Peek a boo.... i See u ^__^

Posing maut with the tiang....

Then we saw 1 ah soh glamour sape the sampah.. XD

After Ee Lin done praying, she joined us as well....

Kung FOO Chicks! (KFC) haha...

Good Galz praying....

After doing praying, we went jalan-jalan cari makan... with a mission! Be a tourist for the day... Haha... so where are we from? Negeri Sembilan oni =.=" haha just bcoz my car nye number plate is NBX so Paparita says we are from N9.... haha

So we pun pegi jalan2 kat Jonker... for almost 18 years (minus 2years in KL & 6 months in Cherating) i lived in Melaka this is the first time I jalan2 arnd Jonker during the day. Haha seriously mcm tourist kan... hehe.... Didnt took much pic while we jln2 coz most stores dont allow us to take pic... no fun at all... but I managed to take tis pic....

Big Selipar for Big Foot....

Then it was lunch time so kita pun cari makan.... Cari makan pun kepala pening.... So we ended up eating at Jonker88.... Seems like a nice place to eat.. They even the Ho Chiak sticker at their stall.... n they even have their own website? Food must be great huh? WRONG!!!! Food sucked... & so did their service...

I actually dont mind carrying my own food to the table but still entrance of the shop is so damn small, how the hell we nak tunggu for our food? N when we wanna order our food, PERGHHH!!! Muka mcm x nak jual siot! Lan C face! ceh! Just so u know, ur food sucks.... I ordered myself a Prawn Dumpling Noodles.... I didnt taste any prawn in it.... n the noodles got tat taste mcm x basuh.... i didnt even finished it.... Even my frenz say ur food sucked!

Prawn Dumpling Noodles

I forgot wats the name... but i know that the taste x sedap

Asam Laksa

N the drinks.... here are the words coming from a bartender, how could u sell a drink yg half empty? Or if u are a positive person, half full??? X penuh leh.... mana blh? Tsk tsk... N not too mention so very slow lagi.... I wasnt there waiting for the drinks but according to my frenz, the lady who made the drinks was kinda kelam kabut.... haiya.....

2 Fresh Apple Juice yg belum diminum..... x penuh seh....

Then I spotted somthin as well....

A chipped bowl.... Mcm ini buat bizness ke?

So overall all of us were definately unsatisfied with our lunch.... just look at these faces....





Food: Bluegghhh... Drinks: Aiyoyo.... Service: No bloody manners.... Ambience: The only nice thing about this place..... I really like the decor of this place... nice antiques..... feels like eating at grandpa's house...

But this painting kinda puzzles me though....

Well after that horrible lunch, we went to our next distination... where ever we feel like walking to.... n take pictures along the way....

At the Clock Tower....



Cat Pooping... XD


Waaargggghhhhh!!!

Romeo yg x dilayan....

Tsk... Tsk... Eee Lin....

On the bukit near the museums....



At the bus stop


At the wind mill





Attack of the flying zombies.... XD

Then we went to Calanthe Art Cafe... LOOVE this place.... but on the day it self was crowded with shooting crews. Dunno wat they were shooting for... not big I guess coz i see no superstar or hot looking actors...

Enjoying some wedges... ^__^

We were really tired... n the selesa-ness of this place makes us feel like mau tido... haha.... then around 4pm, after feeling slightly more energetic, we walked all the way to Dataran Pahlawan to indulge ourselves with some heavenly cakes.....

Nadeje Cake house.... dont care how to pronounce it.... LOOVE this place.... LOOve the cakes.... I ordered Rum & Raisins.... my personal fav ^__^

Tiramisu on the top left, Stawberry on the top right, & Rum & Raisins at the bottom. YUMMMAAAY!

Ee Lin with her Marigold tea.... bunga taik ayam... XD


Basically we lepaked there for quite a long time.... talking bout stuffs & also stalking ppl..... haha.... see this pic below? He is one of the waiter here....

Hahaha..... kk let me explain why we took this dude's pic.... remember my friend Ashok? Tis dude....

Hahaahhaa look a like kan???

Hahaha tat's why lah we took the waiter dude's pic.... N yes I did post the pic on Facebook... N yes I did tag him... N also the whole gang... HAHAHAHA!!!!

Haha sorry lah Ashok kalo teroffend u....i guess i've forgotten how sensitive u are.... XD

But it was definately hard to take the waiter dude's pic.... but thanks to Pav natural talent of being a stalker, we managed to get a shot of him.... hehe....

So that's it for part 2.... Final post will be next.... hohoho
See ya!!!!
