For the dessert, we ordered my favorite dessert, The Avalanche (1st pic above). The taste is so good.
Thank you for the yummylicious farewell lunch.

The set lunch there apparently looks quite cheap, averagely is RM 30 and there is additional 20% off on the set lunch. Nevertheless, do not let the discounted price deceive you as the food portions are extremely small. Well, cheaper price, smaller portion. Hmmm...seems like not so honest. Moreover, the food taste is not so good especially if compared to Xenri. A set lunch in Xenri which also costs averagely RM 30 has a big food portions and your stomach will definitely be extremely full and satisfied.
The scary thing is the male waiter is dressed up as a black ninja. The ambiance there is already quite dark and I don't need a scary Ninja to suddenly appear in front of me. Get lost... u creepy Ninja...no wonder the restaurant is called Ninja Jones (or maybe they meant Ninja Zones). LOL.
Thank you, Kelly and Ms Mal for the farewell lunch (or should I say a scary farewell lunch).
I love the Chocolate Parfait Ice cream. But, I still prefer the one in Sushi Zanmai.
I am gonna miss Xenri restaurant a lot. So many great foods...
DL, do you want to eat the Sunday buffet lunch with me?

Even though the food is not so good, I still have to express my gratitude to my dear colleagues for the treat. Thank you.
The farewell dinner was held at SOULed OUT @ Desa Sri Hartamas which is a bit far from my office and I have to pay a bit fair of toll money (@#$!&). Anyway, this well-known restaurant doesn't need anymore prior introduction as it is one of the coolest hangout place in KL.
I quickly left the office early while the bitch is still having meeting (as usual, she always pretend to be very busy until her very last moment) so that she won't be able to follow me because she is a direction-idiot. Ooopss probably not...as her semi-botak secret lover who also hails from the same company is staying in Mont Kiara. Maybe that's why she know the direction too well.... uummm...always go there for pleasure or shall I say ONS or most probably several nights instead. LOL.
Me and two of the suppliers; Paige and Catherine arrived first. So, we ordered their signature drink; Dragonfly (mixture of Dragonfruit, strawberry and other fruits) which tastes quite good and apparently good for your health and skin. Besides that, we also ordered some appetizers first (naan, anchovies, seafood salad and calamari) while waiting for the rest to arrive.
The bitch and the other supplier, Doris arrived later and we ordered the main dishes; Fish with pasta, wood-fired pizza (with salmon) and claypot Loh Shui Fun. The wood-fired pizza is quite nice as the crust is thin and crispy. As usual, there were too many food and we can't really finish all of them.
Finally, for my favorite part, the sinful dessert, we ordered their signature dessert (Lava Cake) and Banana Boat (with Haagen Daaz ice creams). The Lava Cake is quite sweet though and the taste is not bad. However, I would still prefer the Avalanche in Tony Romas.
I finished off with a glass of JD coke (haha...my favorite drink) before calling it a night. Before I signed off, I need to extend my gratitude to my suppliers: Doris, Paige and Catherine for the wonderful dinner. Thank you.

We went to my favorite Goon Wah Restaurant in Kuchai Lama where I always bring my suppliers to go there for good food. W e ordered a lot of food especially the famous Fish Head Noodles, Fried Loh Shi Fun and XO Chicken. My stomach nearly burst after eating so much of food.
The food there is quite cheap though as it only cost RM 70 for five dishes of food (Fish Head Noodles, Fried Loh Shi Fun, XO Chicken, Fried Rice, Nyonya Mee and Vegetable) we ordered.
Fish Head Noodles (with Yam)
Fried Loh Shi Fun (in Claypot)
For those who are interested to go, the map and contact is below:
Thank you all for the enormous lunch today.

My second farewell lunch is today and the treat is on our Senior Vice President, Mr. Chong. He is a nice man who has a very strong stamina. He can just stand there and talk with you for at least 3 hours without making a single move at the age of 61. Amazing, I really salute him. I don't even have that kind of strength. Well, you can't blame a snake for its laziness though. Love to eat and sleep.
Beside treating me, he also invited that super duper low-esteem bitchy witch to come along as she is leaving too. As he realised that there is a tension between her and me, he invited two more colleagues to join us; his secretary and the 'old chicken mother' for lunch at Fong Lye Restaurant in The Gardens, Midvalley.
Guess who is the witch...Tips: Witch likes to tie a ribbon...
The sweet and sour fish set
Ohmigod, the chicken and beef are so spicy until everyone's mouth get numb and I was sweating like hell until I used up all the tissues. All of us prefer the pork as it is not that spicy and tastes better (with a bit of vinegar sweetness).
See so many tissues...So embarassing....
Anyway, thank you girls for the extreme-hot lunch. I shall remember always.....

Starting from today till my last day, I'll be having endless farewell lunch with my dear fellow colleagues and I think by the day before I leave, I'll be a fatty...But, then again, it's worth it, isn't it?. LOL.
Looking back when I first joined my company, I was quite impressed with the tidiness of the office when I first came for interview. I only then realised that it is a company policy that my company follows... the stupid 5S policy which you need to make sure that your work station is totally clean...I mean SPOTLESS...For example, your keyboard must be dust-free. During the audit, the auditors will turn upside down the keyboard to see if there is any dust. Therefore, we need to use cotton bud to clean each gap between the buttons of the keyboard. It's a nightmare really!! And you can see all my colleagues scrambling to keep their files or documents into their car during audit time. Poor thing!
I don't really like my first department. I was working my ass off during that time. I was so physically tired as there were so many roadshows and events. Not mentally strainned though. But, I'm proud that the new skincare launch (consists of 27 skus) and Total Beauty Workshop was a true success. I could still remember how we called the big lady boss in our department; 龙 猫 (Dragon Cat) due to her big size (of course lah, as you can guess from her nick name). I can still remember how my colleague and I laughed until we cried when we suddenly heard her phone's ringtone rang with 2 gun-shots and then she totally jumped out from the room to pick up her phone. What a funny act!!After spending a torturing 5 months in this department, I was transferred to another department, mainly due to my qualification and my article in The Star, as apparently I was more fit to do the job there. LOL. Anyway, my new boss there treated me quite good there. I think I was her blue eye boy at that time. It was so sweet for her to buy me balloon for my birthday even though I felt weird from receiving one. Just felt like I was treated like a small little cute boy.
After having my best 2 years here and a few successful skin care ranges and fragrance launch, then came a super duper low self-esteem bitchy witch which I blogged earlier on. She was promoted from AM to M and she always complained that her promotion increment is too low and it doesn't justify her workload. Oh...pleeassse....she just need to overlook all our projects and she even doesn't have her own projects to do. What pisses us off is she cut all our bonus to increase her own bonus this year. What a selfish bitch! This really triggers me to look for another job. The most surprising thing is we gave our resignation letters to HR on the same day. Bitch, if I know that you are leaving, I will not leave. But, anyway, this may be a blessing in a disguise as I have found a better salary job with a manager position.
Voila, that's my story. Now, I'm enjoying my honeymoon before working my ass off again.

Per WWD, the new film will chart the story of Audrey and a mystery man (played by model Travis Davenport) who keep missing each other on a journey from Paris to Istabnul on the Orient Express. There is no dialogue, only the vivid color imagery Jeunet is known for: as Billie Holiday's "I'm a Fool to Want You" plays, he lingers outside her train cabin.
And later, in Istanbul, she misses the riverboat he is on, only to photograph him on deck from another ship later.
Finally, they meet, embracing atop a mosaic of Chanel's double-C logo. Can you spot them in the picture below?
The 2 minute 25 second film is directed by French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who worked with Tautou in the Oscar nominated film that made her a star, Amélie.
It will be unveiled on the 5th of May 2009 (5th of the 5th - in honour of No.5!) on the Chanel website (http://www.chaneln5.com/) , 88 years to the day the fragrance was introduced, and will then be screened in smaller clips on TV.
Chanel No. 5 - The legendary perfume of all time!
A mythical perfume and the undisputed leader of creative fragrances, Chanel N°5 is the number one seller in the world. Mademoiselle Chanel, whose haute couture business was very fashionable in the 20's asked Ernest Beaux, a Russian perfume creator to develop a "woman's perfume that smells like a woman''.
He showed her two series of creations numbered 1 through 5 and 20 through 24. She chose the ''fifth sample''. For the first time Ernest Beaux had incorporated synthetic substances, aldehydes, in his formula – Blended with may roses and jasmine from Grasse, they formed a mysterious and indefinable scent. A work of genius! No-one had ever dared to deviate from single flower scented perfumes before. A superstitious woman, Chanel introduced her new collection on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year, with the fifth sample as selected, and she named it N°5.
The first perfume to be contained in a simple, no-frills, geometrical bottle.A sleek and square bottle with perfect proportions. The shap of the cap is reminiscent of Place Vendôme in Paris. A classic example of 'Less is more'.
What is your favorite perfume? Tell me.
But, the most moving part is the finale episode in this season when Nora told Kevin he deserved to have a beautiful wedding just as much as anybody else. Even though Kevin did not want any flowers in the wedding, but his mum, Nora just got carried away with the flower decorations and in the end, the wedding was so romantic and beautiful.
One of the other reasons this episode was so touching was because I just love Scotty so much (besides being so cute). I felt so sorry for him that his parents were so unwilling to come and see him get married. I just find him to be such a good person that I want him to be happy, even more so than Kevin. Nora's acceptance of him, his father's cufflinks, the flowers: It was all what Scotty deserved.
