Wait! Let Me Take Photos First!

Long suffering family members, friends and colleagues have at some point or other heard this whenever they go out for a meal with me, regardless the place. Especially if it's the my first time visiting that particular eatery be it at a posh restaurant or a mobile seller selling rojak. 

Had a Christmas lunch & secret Santa/gift exchange with my "makan kaki" (or eating gang, if you may) on the Friday before Christmas and I literally stopped people from eating just because I wanted to take photos! No camera? No problem. Low quality handphone camera would do just fine. I'm a nutcase, I'm told. Heh heh
 
 
We had our lunch at Pastis, which is located just beside the building I work in. Can you believe it? I walk past this place every s.i.n.g.l.e working day and had never eaten a meal there.

Set lunch for less than RM20.00 and we got a main dish, a drink and a choice of cut fruit or a scoop of ice-cream. OK, but we were still peckish after the lunch so one of the main "kaki" bought an whole ice-cream from Baskin Robbins for us to enjoy. I was so full after two big slices of ice-cream cake!

  6. You have been running regularly so eating such a heavy meal would not add extra weight to your body lah!

  18. Haha! I sure stop everyone on the same table from eating cos I sure need to take photos first!! Unless I have taken photo of the food before, if not sure must take photos first! This is a rule and I guess those who go out with me are used to this rule already LOL!
