Caught in Action!

A month ago, a pan mee restaurant was opened in Wisma Sentral, KL, called Cheng Kee. We gave it a try on the second week of opening. After that first visit, we have been visiting that restaurant quite often, like twice in a week. I even visited them 3 times a week (terror lei). Is not like their pan mee is fantastic, is just that I feel like drinking the soup for lunch, instead of the normal clear soup (Qing Tong). As for PY, she likes the chilli there.

Mango Sago (RM5.80). A lot of mangos and some nata de coco jelly. Shaved ice with lots of sago around it and some mango juice. Boy boy said not bad, and I personally think it was much better than KTZ Mango Sago. KTZ boss is so dem ego, I wouldnt want to go back there since I found another place that served better Mango Sago. Must recommend my sis to come here next time since she likes mango sago.
Steamed Shanghainese Meat Dumpling with Superior Soup (RM6). The first thing that boy boy ordered when he opened the menu. He just cant resist not to try Siu Long Bao in any restaurant. The dumpling was quite big, and the soup was a lot. It was tasty. The 'skin' was thick enough not to pecah when we try to take it, so we managed to drink every single bit of soup in it.
Shanghai Dumpling with soy sauce (RM4.60). The ingredients were rich enough though, but the soy sauce was a bit sweet and lack of flavour lor. Quite a standard taste.
Shanghai Style La Mien with Crab Roe (RM8.80). Another dish that boy boy poked when I wanna poke this dish. I must try this since I love the one in Shanghai 10, so that I can do a comparison. The crab roe was not as much as S1o, and the soup was not as thick as S10. It was a bit unfair to Dragon One for the comparison since S10 serves the best crab roe la mien. But, I do find that this dish does not disappoint for whoever who has not tasted S10 before. Not a bad la mien actually.
The service was very slow as I think they dont have enough staffs. There were only 1 lady boss who was busy taking orders and 2 staffs busy serving the dishes. They dont even have time to clean up the tables man. Then hor, I think the kitchen staffs also very little lor, each dish came in 10 minutes interval. So when we finished the first dish, we waited for the second dish to serve, we finished the second dish, we waited for the third dish to serve. Erm, totally slow poke service.
Despite the slow service, I am thinking of going back soon to try out other stuffs that they offer (Anyone wanna join?). I wanna try all the la miens and all the dimsum. And, siu long bao is a must order for me. Hahaha.
Restaurant Dragon One
59, Ground Floor, Jalan SS2/75,
47300 Petaling Jaya.
(same row as Public Bank and Secret Recipe)
Fixing the power cable.Connecting the wires. White is neutral, Blue is light, green is .... he didnt say.
Drilling a hole.
After everything was fixed, boy boy said the wire hanging down from the lamp doesnt look nice. Dont know why Ikea design such wall-mounted lamp with power cord and a wire, it looks dem ugly. Then I said, "never mind, just leave it there, we will put our big wedding photo over it to cover up the wire, no worries!". He gave me this expression: =.="
When I reached Ikea cafe, a plate of meehoon, chicken wings and popia were on the table. Ikea didnt serve pao today. Sharon only ate her plate of meehoon and left the chicken wings and popias untouched as she knew that I wanted to take a picture of those food. So nice of her. She bought the food first as these food are always sold out within 1 hour of opening, which means that by 10.30am, these 'special' food are sold out. No wonder last time I only saw sandwiches and muffins in Ikea.
A plate of fried meehoon with sambal for RM1, dirt cheap for an air-con environment. Not spicy as the sambal was more of the tomato flavour. But for RM1, who wanna complain about it?
Jackie reached 1.05pm.Once she reached, Sharon and I quickly went to Q up for Ikea hot dishes. We dont let Jackie to buy the food for us as we believed that she definately will over order the food. Both of us scared of her already. Although Sharon has to eat for 2 person, but still could not help finish what Jackie will order.
The whole process of Q-ing to taking a trolley to ordering of food to paying at the counter took 20 minutes. Quite crazy I can say, but people still loves Ikea food. I think the reason why it was so long is that there was only 2 counters and 2 guys taking and making the hot dish upon ordering. Cant they just hire another 2 more staffs to make the preparation faster?
When we were Q-ing up, there was a couple in front of us holding hands side by side. Then a cleaning worker (aunty) came and told them, "please Q-up, one line only". Me and Sharon was amazed by sentence thinking that there was one-line only ma, except that the couple standing next to each other, it doenst consider 'two lines' right? Duh! The worker kept staring at the couple until Sharon said she better stand behind me so that our line looked likes 'one line', just in case teh worker stared at her.
Anyway, we ordered Salmon with potatoes and brocolli (RM11.90 I think). Actually I preferred raw salmon sashimi than this grill one. Actually it tasted a bit fishy to me, but Sharon said grill salmon is like that one wo. Guess I couldnt take grill salmon next time. Jackie taught to put lots of pepper onto the salmon to avoid the fishy taste. In fact, it did help.
So we walked Ikea for awhile, then we walked to The Curve. Jackie went into Adidas store and she was interested in a pair of walking shoes. It was white in color and a light pink color of adidas logo beside. The shoe costs around RM120 after 30 % discount. At first, I thought it somehow looked like school shoes, but Jackie said now this type of white shoes very 'in' wo. She wanted to buy a white shoe with adidas signature 3 stripes at the side, but it does not have it for ladies style.
After we walked out from the store, my brain started to tickle whether to buy that shoes or not. RM120 only for a pair of Adidas. Very cheap wo. Then I can wear it while walking shopping complex instead of high heels. Die la die la, should I buy or should I not buy lei??? I want that shoe, but I want to save money too! How ar???
Walked until 4pm, a bit tired so we went to Kim Gary for a drink.
Sharon ordered Nissin Mee. She gave Jackie some.
Mother-to-be on the left and Jackie on the right.
Super duper full as the whole day spent on eating, eating and eating only . I felt dem fat coming out from The Curve. Super happy day after catching up with friends. And I didnt buy the Adidas shoe. Hm......

Nicole called and said she wanna go Mont Kiara and collect her MBA certificate and 'soon bien' have dinner with me. She asked me to choose Doarae Korean or Edo Jo Japanese. I was thinking there is a Doarae branch in NZX which is quite near my house and I can go there anytime, so I chose Edo Jo.
Sake Sashimi (Salmon) - RM32 for 6 thick slices. Very fresh sashimi with a steep pricing too! The wasabi was not hot lei.
The corquette was served with a sauce. I felt that the corquette itself was already rich in flavour, but the sauce was not bad either.
Nicole took the first slice, and when she took a bite, the beef didnt come off, I mean, it didnt separate. She was pulling and pulling. How come like that geh? I ordered medium-to-well done wo, wasnt the texture suppose to be soft instead of tough?

Indeed, the next train arrived like 8 minutes later, and it was quite full. PY and AL managed to squeeze in, and I was still at the door there. Mana tahu, this fat aunty on my right, pushed towards me and wanna go towards the same direction as me. I was like, ‘cant you just wait for me to move in first since you are the one jumping my Q?’.
I don’t care.
I squeezed with her, not letting her into my way, and she trying to squeeze in as well, until she crushed PY’s Korean instant noodle (which was inside her backpack, and PY was in front me). PY was so mad.
While both of us (referring to me and my ‘enemy’) still trying to squeeze through, I lost my balance a bit and I moved a few steps (tiny steps) towards my left (see la, don’t eat a lot, so thin until cant even fight a place with fat people, DAMN!).
Pushed until myself was sticking to quite a tall guy with my thigh touching his ‘bottom’ part (he cant step back as he was sticking to the wall already). Oppsie! A bit da embarrassed I was.
I know that I am not gonna make it in with my body facing in front, so I turned my body to the right, thinking that I can move in easily. Mana tahu this stupid ‘enemy’ was still pushing towards me. And I felt that my butt was touching that guy’s bottom part again! I felt so malu!
So, I thought ‘die ma die la’, one gush of strength and I pushed myself through (although I still lose to the ‘enemy’ sei fei poh), and my butt just swiped over his ‘bottom’ part. My butt felt the ‘bottom’ part ok. OMG OMG OMG.
After that, I don’t even dare to look at that guy, I felt so malu le, touching (I mean my butt, not my hands ok!) other people’s bottom part. YER~!!! Yucks! Bluek!
Don’t ask me whether the fella’s thing got ‘raise’ up or not. I don’t know and I don’t care and I don’t intend to find out!
Super duper E.M.B.A.R.R.A.S.S.I.N.G.
