How Low Can You Go

20/06/2016

This was something I did not expect. A sudden feeling of ill health. Weakness. Dizziness. Lightheaded. And I didnt know why.

So I decided to head home. As I got up from my chair, I felt another wave of dizziness.

Somehow I made it home safely. Thank you Lord.

Once indoors, I grab a quick bite and rest. That’s when I think to myself, “What’s with the dizziness.” That’s when I recall we have a sphygmomanometer. A blood pressure measure machine.

I have to say I was quite surprised with the result. I half expected it to be low, but not this low!

And yes, I am fine now!

Ginormous Gastronomic Glee

I kid you not. The prawns were huge.

But wait. I am jumping ahead of myself.

It was a free afternoon during our trip away because Hubby’s meeting time was changed. So we asked some friends at very short notice if anyone was free for lunch. Lo and behold, a group of half a dozen friends managed to meet up with us. Of these friends, there was one we had not seen for over 30 years! What a good time we had together!

We were treated to a splendid meal served at the Kampung Ku Restaurant at the Lake View Club. The signature fresh water prawn noodles was a memorable dish not just for it’s taste but also the size of the prawns!

Cooked with the special sauce and noodle, it was so flavourful, I had four helpings of it! Definitely a must if you are in that part of the city! Yum!

Swanky Stuff

Kid you not. This was a place which exuded “class’, “money”, “rich” and “excess”.  Initially unostentatious upon arrival, you are then warmly greeted and led down a long corridor. Leading off this passageway from both sides are rooms. Each room has at least one huge table with specific decor and table setting. Hubby and I were led to the second best room, because the top one was already booked.

With ample space for settees, side tables and more, the main dining table occupied pride of place below a chandelier.

The table setting… Quite unique.

The dishes that were served were excellent. The was a discreet wait in between each item on the menu, but nothing that was too long. The highlight of the evening has to be the smoked and roasted piglet. The waft of smokiness which hits the nostrils and lingers at the back of the palate is both tantilizing and memorable.

This then, is the Peninsular Restaurant at the newly opened Evolve mall in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. I would love to go there again!
