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....
