I’d been to Boston 又一城, Karamunsing Capital for four times. This place was introduced by one of my deariest, Wawa and I think it is one good and comfortable place for you to hang out and having dinner with your beloved one, family and friends. One thing I like about here is varieties of choices from foods to beverages. Just one of the drawback is only few selection of desserts are available.

So, in here I would like to compile all my pictures which I took during my last 4 visits in 1 entry in order to avoid from you saying “Wah! Boston Again???!!!

Part I

First time went with my deariest. I was impressed with their appealing menu and caught my attention to visit for second times.

Part IV

Pic of Boston itself

I went yesterday night with my lil bro and TTM for dinner. Why no any pics of foods this time around? Actually during my first 3 visits, I didn’t manage t0 capture the first 4 pics (as shown above) and also their menu. For your information, the first 4 pics I just took yesterday before enter the restaurant. And when after finished ordering the foods and about to start taking the pics inside their menu, the waiter approached us and spoke politely “Sorry miss. You can’t take it”. OMG! or I can said WTH! I’m not gonna stealing any of your secret recipe and open my own restaurants. I just want take a few snapshots and share in my blog. So after the unfortunate incidents, no mood to take pics at all. sad

So, next time I will take snapshots using my hp twisted. Good idea leh…

All this while, I thought Fook Yuen only served their signature bread “roti kaya” and economy noodles and cooked foods. Not until my deariest brought me to another Fook Yuen branch located at Gaya Street, I was quite shocked when I realised they do serve dim sum.

Hey, how come the main shop at Damai does not serve dim sum?rolleyes

It was quite surprising to me also because dim sum had been always being labeled as “Non-Halal Foods” but when in Fook Yuen, it is halal food. Good news for Wawa because finally she can eat dim sum with us. twisted

Supper around 10pm++ for 2 person

Their dim sum are huge and only cost RM2.80 per steamer basket, which I think it is so cheap and reasonable than the non-halal dim sum.

Feeling so sinful neutral

Besides this branch, the other Fook Yuen branch located at Karamunsing Capital do serve dim sum too.

innit

>I took another half day leave again last Tuesday, just to fetch her…

That is Kai Wee, my very best friend when we studied in KL. She just came back from Taiwan (refer previous post). She is damn hungry when reached KK and craving for Japanese foods. So, I brought her to Wojamama, our own Sabah Japanese restaurant in 1Borneo.


My face is so chubby. How to reduce the chubby face? Any clue?


Sushi (forget the name xP)


Tori Curry Don. Only RM9.90 during happy hour (2.30 pm – 5.30pm)

Tempura

Thanks Kai Wee for belanja me. Yesterday you asked me what I want for my birthday. Ok lah, this consider as my birthday treat. Thanks so much and hopes to see you soon. xP

During her Taiwan trip, Doraemon theme park is closed due to the termination of the contract with 1 of the theme park. So, she took this chance to take with this big big Doraemon which we saw outside Wojamama.

So envy that Kai Wee went Taiwan during the spring season. The sakura blossom during that time. Even when I was in Japan last year, never got the chance to see sakura as the period I went was autumn season.

A top, a belt and a sandal which I grabbed last Sunday while shopping with my Queen =D

What a lovely day I had when accompany my mom for shopping together on most weekend. Well, you tell me which lady doesn’t like to shopping, right? Both of us shop from the head to the toe but we never shop till we drop. Just too bad, sometimes the clock tick tock too fast and the shopping hour is so limited as my mom need to go back home early to prepare dinner.

So, what is my best ideal weekend? Besides shopping, my best ideal weekend is enjoy relaxing at home by sleeping continuously. Before I start to work on Saturday, if the time do not reach till 10am, I won’t wake up one. Its a big NO for me! Unless I had appointment with someone. But now, too bad I can’t lying more longer on my bed on Saturday because I need to work. =(

Wonder why there is only 2 days in weekend and now my weekend seems like not enough because of the half day working on Saturday. Apart from that, I keep wondering why there is only 7 days per week and not 8 days per week, so that we can have 3 days off on weekends. Here goes my day dreaming again. Lol~

For a working individual like me, every weekday is like a mathematics to me. Starting with Monday, sure non-stop countdown to reach till Friday or in my newest case, Saturday. Seems like everyday will countdown for the day to past by with my colleagues.

Let’s back to the story. I also love to spend my weekend by dating. Yeah, baby! Even me and TTM always meet each other and even sometimes almost 7 days a week but we never really had the real time for the just 2 of us only. So, weekend is the best time by hanging out, watching movie and etc. *wink*wink*

Not forgetting, having the wildest moment with my crazy deariest on weekend is the best moment to get rid off all the pressure, tension and stress that I had for the past 5 days. In deed, they are truly and madly crazy deariest I ever had in my life. Sharing the madness laughter and also funny but sexy stories. You go, gals~

What irritating me the most is sometimes, my weekend distract by something which I’m not interest with anymore. How can I shopping with my mom when I need to do something between 2pm – 4pm? Every Sunday, it’s my family day where my family and I would have breakfast together. Or I can said brunch together. So, most probably our brunch ends around 12 pm and we will do whatever we want. My dad will either sleep, watch TV or read newspaper meanwhile my 2 lil bros will playing game. Then, my mom and I will go for shopping. With the inconvenient time, how can I shopping if like that? My mom is a busy woman. She is only free on Sunday as she need to work on Saturday too.

Sometimes, I even asked to apply leave purposely just to attend few events which I don’t think is important in my life currently. As standing in my current age, the most important now is to have a stable career and in the stage of building strong and stable relationship. But, I just don’t get it why that related party doesn’t try to understand and tolerance with my current situation? Even when I’m seriously sick, I still being forced to attend or join whenever she asked to.

The main problem within myself is I don’t know how to say “No” to that related party that I don’t feel like I want join or attend anymore. Haiz. Don’t know why it seems like so hard for me to open my mouth and tell that party honestly regarding what I feel. Hopefully one day I hope that party will understand.

>If not mistaken, the last time I met my very best friend, Kai Wee a.k.a Chris was during Eunice Meow Ling’s convocation which held in KL last November of year 2009.


Kai Wee, me and Jenny in Pavilion. Damn miss them so much.


That’s me and Kai Wee


My bestie during my college life

Last few weeks, she reminded me that she will stopby at KK from Miri before took off to Taiwan on the next morning. She told me about that once she bought the ticket last year and she had to remind me again because of my STM sickness. ==lll

Something stupid and funny soon to be happen if she didn’t remind me.

DT: Hey, Kai Wee! Reach KK airport yet? I reached airport liao and waiting for you outside.
KW: Huh??!! I’m at home lah
DT: What??!! Your flight not reach KK from Miri at 1.30 pm meh?
KW: Abuh!! My flight is at 11.30 pm lah. The 1.30 pm flight is when I about to back from Taiwan!

You see, this will happens if she didn’t remind me regarding her flight schedule. Somemore, I had apply my half day leave just to fetch her but her flight is at night. Luckily she told me earlier or else, I will be like an idiot people waiting for her and I will be wasted my annual leave too. Lol~

In between, there is funny story happens with my leave form. After I knew about her flight schedule which did not crash with my working hour, immediately I cancelled my leave. I requested from HR department to return the leave form to me. Yes, she did that and I took it with me. Before I left the office, I couldn’t find my leave form. That is on Friday. So, on Monday morning, I searched for the leave form again and told my colleague who is in Tax department regarding my leave form had lost. Not until after lunch time, he told me that he knew where was my leave form. Guess where’s my leave form? Is it with my boss? Nope. Is it return back to HR dept? Nope. The answer is I accidentally passed my leave form to my client. So silly am I. Such a careless lady. Shame of me. Luckily, my client is a nice and kind lady that she even offer her office boss to return the leave form to me. The whole office laughed at me when they heard that.

Then at night, Kai Wee’s flight safely landed KK airport from Miri around 11.30 pm.

Kai Wee with her huge luggage

Brought her to Fook Yuen, Damai to have supper, in case scare she is hungry ooo… Morning at Damai, then night at Damai again. Really another Lol~ Actually, I sucks in thinking where to bring friends and relatives where to eat. So, simply bring her there to taste of Fook Yuen infamous homemade bread.
They call this as Roti Kaya. I prefer the original 1 because it is so soft.

Reached home almost 1 am and both of us talked talked until almost 2 am. She asked me to apply leave on the next morning but I refuse because I told her that I had no problem to work in the next morning even sleep for 3 or 4 hours.

Woke up around 3.30 am and send Kai Wee to airport at 4 am. After accompany her to wait for her friends to reach airport, I went back and the time is almost 5 am. Since there is few hours left, I decided to sleep back until 6.30 am. What Kai Wee said is true! I really can’t woke up at 6.30 and at the end, I decided to message HR dept telling that I am OFFICIALLY taking half day leave. Cancel the leave on Monday noon but replace with Tuesday morning. Lol.

Looks like I am not proactive compare as previous time. Even I sleep for less than 4 hours, I still manage to wake up and go to work but now I can’t. Seems like I’m getting old.

Anyway, even I managed to met Kai Wee for few hours only, but I’m glad and damn happy as this remind me of our time during in college life. I can’t wait for her to come back from Taiwan on 8th of March.

Oh ya! Since TTM knew I was at home, he went to my house to have lunch with me and my family before both of us went to office at 1pm. So coincidentally, he was in field audit today and his client went off early before lunch time. 🙂

Where should I start from? Okay, I woke up at exactly strike 12 pm. Not public holiday given by my Company neither or I purposely take leave just to celebrate this V day. Now it sounds more like I anti Valentine’s day. No, I’m not, okay. Just I am seriously damn sick and pay doctor visit on the night before Valentine’s day. So, the doctor ask me to have a good rest and giving me MC. Yeahooo, this means I no need go to work on Monday.

As usual, either on weekend or public holiday or when I’m not working like yesterday, I will directly go to my living room. That’s where my laptop is. But wait, I saw parcel from Pos Ekspress written my name on it. So, i turned to the back to see who is the sender. Quite surprising when it was send by my ji mui, Ling Liong Sung. Oh yeah, “he” version type of Ji Mui. Hehehehe… Never expecting anything from him by the way. So I immediately opened it to see what’s inside.

Recipient: Me 🙂


Sender: Ling Liong Sung; all the way from Sibu, Sarawak

So, what’s inside the parcel. Tadaaaaaaaaaaa…….

A cute teddy bear from Korea and earring from Russia


Love this one especially, Teddy bear with Korean costume

He went Korea last month from Russia before stopby Malaysia for CNY. For your information, he is currently working at Russia (which I ever post this during his farewell) and how sweet to receive such a wonderful Valentine’s gift from him during this day? Thanks a lot, my friend and I’m feeling pai seh (embrassing) at the same time for not giving him anything when I was travelling to Hong Kong, Japan or even Taiwan last year.

Since I woke up late, it’s time to eat lunch before eating medicine with empty stomach. How wonderful to know that every time I’m sick, my mom will cook porridge for me. Somemore, my favourite porridge; pork with egg. Good thing of being sick was you will be treat like a princess. 🙂 After finish the whole bowl, now it’s time for the worst part of being sick which was eating medicine. 😦 No one ever like to eat the medicine.


A porridge cook with motherly love to her dearest daughter

After eating the medicine, I feel so sleepy. Forget to mention that the doctor told me that after eating it, it will makes me sleepy. So, I continue to sleep after watching drama on Astro on Demand. Try my best to awake before end at episode 4. Sleep until 6pm, then I heard I had received sms. When checking my phone, I realised I had a missed call from TTM. OMG! My SMS ringtone is much louder than my caller ringtone. Should change it. And I’m totally forget I promised to have dinner with TTM on the night of Valentine’s day.

DT: Hello! Sorry for answer your phone. I was sleeping like a pig.
TTM: It’s OK! So how’s tonight?
DT: Tonight? Your mom cook?
TTM: Nope
DT: Erm, did you ask for tapao?
TTM: Nope

Looks like I can’t fong fei kei him or else he will be in deeply hungry for sure. So, immediately I rush to clean up myself before ready to have dinner with him. By the way, this is just a normal dinner like we have as usual. Both of us plan to have Japanese food as our dinner. Oh yeah, both of us like Japanese foods recently. We decided to have dinner at Sushi King, Citymall but too bad, it’s full house. From what I saw, it’s not crowded with couple but a group of family. Looks like Valentine’s day is not for couple to celebrate but family do so. I love that feeling.

Since Sushi King full house, so we decide to try our luck at another Japanese Restaurant; Recipe House at Damai. Seems like most of the Japanese Restaurant are full house including Hana Japanese Restaurant, Citymall. Looks like Japanese Restaurant is the best place for couple to celebrate their love during Valentine’s Day cause Paparich and Old Town are not full with crowd. So lucky for us that we able to get a seat in Recipe House. Or else, we don’t know where should we heading to.


Notice his T-shirt? Ninja which I bought for him from Japan 😉

After dinner, went to his house to watch movie. Before stepping to his house, there is fireworks again around his house area.


The fireworks is for the celebration of CNY or Valentine’s Day??

Then, I went to his room and guess what? I saw a colour cube box made out from paper on his table. I’m guessing that he is so damn free and got nothing to do, so try to make a cube box using colour paper. With surprise, he turns the cube colour box into THIS:


Origami Magic Cube Rose with my favourite colour on it, Blue

I was stunned for a while and totally speechless. Although it’s not a bonquet flower but this is sincerely from him. Like my friend said, love is not meant to be burn a hole in the pocket. It’s all about sincerely from the heart. Somemore, a real flower won’t last for long but this origami magic cube rose did. Hahaha…

Thanks to you, TTM! Although I’m sick, he managed to cheer my life with giving me a little tiny surprise.

There goes my superb duper long story on the day of V day 2011. It’s just a normal day which I’d been through everyday. Like I said in my previous blog, EVERYDAY IS VALENTINE’S DAY. So, how’s about yours?

Sushi Tei – an international Japanese sushi restaurant chain, originated from Singapore are now located in Suria Sabah. Yeahoooo, this means that there are more selection of Japanese restaurant to choose from are now available in Kota Kinabalu. Honestly to say that I love Japanese foods more than Italian foods, even though I don’t eat those raw one like sashimi, salmon =p. But, I’m damn love sushi especially Inari.


Located at Ground Floor, nearby Voir


Their signature open-kitchen allow to us to see their chefs culinary skills


The big menu

At first, I thought this is one fine and wealthy Japanese restaurant as this is the first international Japanese restaurant chain in Kota Kinabalu. But from the menu, I realised that the price range for sushi can range from RM2 for Tamago sushi to RM10. However, I saw sea urchin sushi for RM42. OMG ==”… 2 sushi for RM42!!! But when I think back, this is one rare Japanese foods you can find in KK. For ala carte, you can choose from RM10.90 and more on some of the premium dishes.


Ocha which cost RM2 per cup. Good thing is it’s refillable


Cutie Wawa with her ocha

Now it’s time for “ITADAKIMASU”:


My all time favourite; Chicken Katsu Don


Ten Don;


Yakitori Don; grilled chicken with rice

Their foods are taste nice and smell nice too especially Yakitori Don. Too bad we didn’t order sushi as most of us had eaten a bit before this. Their services are excellent and attentive too. At first, we thought that we might need to wait for so long as there is a long queue. I was a bit worry cause our movie will be show in 1 hour plus. However, we were being given a seat within 5 minutes.

Drawback of this restaurant was there is a long Japanese Kaiten (conveyor belt) but just a few sushi was display on top of it. So all you need to do is by ordering yourself.

Anyway, I would like to have a try on their sushi especially their Futomaki and California Maki.
