Fish Sold Out

Saw this banner so I bought a prosperity Fish burger set to share with my friend. The black pepper sauce is so spicy hot that it numb my mouth and caused me to forget to take a photo so I went back to order another fish burger but was told that the fish patty was sold out so I bought a prosperity beef burger instead and requested for "no black pepper sauce".

Prosperity Beef Burger without the black pepper sauce and I have replaced the soft drink with hot tea.

Total bill is MYR 18 nett.

De Irrfan Cafe IPC

This rojak is one of my favourite dish (MYR 5.95 nett). I like the crunchy coconut fritters the best when compared to the rest of the ingredients: the prawns fritters, hard boiled egg, julienned jicama and cucumber.

2019 Valentine Day

We turned Valentine's Day into Ladies' Day and the 6 of us went to have this meal for sharing.

1st course: 2 sets of lobster bisque and salad with raisins and almond flakes. As before in 2015, I find the lobster bisque very creamy and on the salty side but one of my friend likes it and finished one bowl. The other bowl was left unfinished because the rest of us found it to be too creamy.

2nd course: Whole lobster pasta with mussels, prawns and scallops. The pasta is hidden underneath the lobster. Although the pasta is tasty but all 6 of us could not finish it because it was a big portion. We left a bit of pasta behind.

The lobster is bigger than a hand.

The waitress opened it up for us. I think they overcooked it because the meat was tougher than those I have eaten before.

3rd and last course: Heart shaped lava chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.

Close up. Very rich chocolaty taste with chocolate sauce flowing out of the cake.

Foc cheddar bay biscuits - my favourite! Luckily this time they did not put the green herb dressing on them because I don't think my friends would like those green herb dressing. My friends like the taste.

We also ordered 3 mains from the ala carte menu. Lobster Tail, Shrimps and Salmon - MYR 119.90++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 139.08 nett). For a photo with a better view of the lobster tail, please refer to my previous visit in 2017 with this same dish. My friends like the fragrance of butter in the rice.

Sirloin steak with shrimps - MYR 79.90++ (MYR 92.68 nett). 3 of us shared the medium well steak because the other 3 ladies do not eat beef.

Fish and chips at MYR 33.90++ (MYR 39.32 nett). I ordered this main at the Intermark branch in 2015. That Intermark branch is now closed.

Total bill is MYR 471.25 nett making it about MYR 78.54 per pax as we also ordered 3 cups of hot tea (refillable hot water), 1 cup of hot long black coffee and 1 bottle of mineral water for 2 to share.

Red Lobster at The Curve Mall. May this branch stay in business for a long, long time because I think I will only return in 2 years time just for the cheddar bay biscuits.

P/S The CNY decor in The Curve Mall has been removed totally when we were there yesterday which was CNY day 10.

Geometry

I did not manage to get this 2019 Ang pow packet from UOB which I think is a very creative use of geometry. I just asked my friend to take a photo of her ang pow packet and to send it to me. Can you see the resemblance?

I believe this is a traditional common design.

My friend ate ice cream at Inside Scoop and received this Ang Pow packets.

My friend gave me these ang pow packets

Jade ang pow packets?

I spent MYR 200 on food for a gathering at Berjaya Times Square and received these 5 ang pow packets which I just keep and stare at them from time to time because I don't have the heart to use them.

Ang Pow holder for the above 5 ang pow packets.

The words "Berjaya Times Square" are embossed onto the ang pow holder.

2019 Bee Cheng Hiang Angpow packets.

This is not 2019 ang pow packets but I am no sure which year. I can see phoenix birds but not dragons on the cover. Very colourful, like a piece of tapestry.

 My friend showed me these 2019 gold fish ang pow packets.

 She also showed me these 3 floral ang pow packets.
Now sure which year's ang pow but we think the different flower designs are very pretty.

I think perhaps these are plum flowers?

I received this ang pow from my relative as a form of blessing. I am not sure whether this design is for year 2019 or previous years. Do you have a favourite ang pow design for 2019? Please show us.

P/S Happy Valentine's Day! Any special celebration with loved ones?
