Rachel and I had arrange to go out for our dinner date together on Thursday (30 May 2013) so as usual, we will meet up at MRT before proceeding to our destination which was chosen to be NEX @ Serangoon Central.
As there was quite a lot of people shopping and dining around the place after work, we just choose somewhere which was not as crowded (No need to queue for too long) and so, we settle for a restaurant called RamenPlay which still had some queue but was not as long as the rest. Anyway, we had eaten in RamenPlay for a few times in other branches so decided to try this branch for our dinner.
It was a very bad day for me as my trust worthy Samsung monitor died on me when I need it for some research over the Internet. This 19″ inch monitor had been showing me the wonders of the Internet cum movies for a few years and it suddenly died on me on 28 May 2013.
My 19″ Samsung LCD Montior ~~Good Bye~~
Without much choice, I went over to Sim Lim Square to find and get a new monitor for my system on the very next day after work. Had been doing some research over the net in office on what monitor I should get and was thinking of a 27″ inch one as the current standard one out there in the market are selling at minimum 24″ inch nowadays. Ofcourse as a loyal fans of Samsung, I decided to purchase Samsung brand monitor again and had thought what model to get.
Time always goes so fast when you are having fun or enjoying your holiday season. It was Sunday (26 May 2013) and it was our last day (To be exact, half day) over at Malacca before we need to drive back to Johor and I need to get back to Singapore.
We eaten our breakfast buffet at hotel level 1 as usual before going back to our hotel room for a final pack up before checking out of hotel.
One of the car having a flat battery and Rachel’s father decided to use another car (We have a total of 2 cars driving to Malacca) and bring all of us to one of the nearby Japanese restaurant named “Ohan Japanese Restaurant Sdn Bhd” which Rachel’s parent went for their dinner last night and feels that they were nice and wish to eat again for lunch.
This restaurant accept Credit Card payment only if your bill was above RM80.00
Continuing with my earlier post, we were about to go back to our hotel when Rachel suggested that we go buy some famous crepe cakes by Nadeje what we missed out when we were in Malacca during our first visit and bring them back to hotel to have it together with her parents.
People queuing to enter the restaurant for their meal
Actually, I thought that we will be going over to the one located at the Mahkota Parade shopping mall but we actually went over to another branch at Plaza Mahkota which was quite near to the shopping mall branch too. Never know there was another branch so near to each other.
The road over at this place was quite narrow due to a lot of cars parking at the road side and some of the vehicles were big van type which makes it even harder to move around finding a parking lot. The restaurant was already full house with quite a lot of people queuing up to enter the restaurant for a meal here. We were considering quite lucky as when we want to temporary park our car with some of us go buy the cake, there was a car leaving right where we were stationing.
Rise and shine, one day had passed from our 3 days trip and since Saturday (25 May 2013) is a weekend which means a lot of people should be going to those popular attractions which we had planned to go too. First thing we must do after washing up was to go for our complimentary breakfasts at ground level of the hotel.
Refresh from a day rest
Restaurant which catered for our breakfast for these 2 days.
There were quite a lot of Indians guest having their breakfast at the restaurant when we were there and it seems that they were here on business trip as most of them wearing formal attire. Anyway the staff took our coupon for breakfast and just let us free and easy for us to find and get tables for ourselves before going for the breakfast buffet. The dishes there were quite acceptable but most or all of the dishes were not warm / hot.
Rachel family had planned for a 3 days 2 nights of free and easy self driven trip over to Malacca as the one we went during our 1 day trip was not really a good experience. As I was also included to the holiday plan, I went back to her Malaysia house to stay over night on 23 May after work and we start of our holiday trip on Friday (24 May 2013) early in the morning.
We stopped along the way at a restaurant for a breakfast break as Rachel’s Father said this restaurant named “Restoran Sze Hwa (世华肉骨茶)” served good Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶). The place itself looks quite rundown but there were quite a huge crowd of people having their breakfast fix over at this place so I thought to myself that the dishes they served should not be bad too.
Seem like those olden days coffeeshop layout with Chinese tea leaves place nicely on the shelves.
Meeting Rachel on Wednesday (15 May 2013) over at Orchard today for a dinner date. As usual, I will always wait for her at Buona Vista MRT before proceeding to our location. When we reached Orchard, we actually do not know what we wanted to eat for dinner as we have been eating western food for quite a few times so this time round, we decided to eat something else and decided to eat over at “Lu Gang Xiao Zhen – The Asian Kitchen” when we walked pass that place.
Reason eating there was also partly due to the nice food we eaten at this restaurant in Bugis+ branch. Getting a table was not difficult even though there were quite a lot of people dinning there, there were still some empty tables seats for us to have our meals there.
The main layout of the restaurant was in red theme as all pillars, tables and chairs were using red as the theme. The staff were busy and it was quite hard to get their attention though they were still friendly in treating customers. As both of us were already hungry, we quickly scanned through the menu and started to order our meals.
