Approximately six hours after it happened.
Four hours if it wasn't for the dinner interruption. Talk about being extreme.
From total silence to 'almost' instantaneous blogging.
Well, the biggest reason for not blogging is always procrastination. So since I somehow found myself filled with determination and oddly happy this afternoon, I told myself "Just do it!"
In which I did.
So what exactly happened six hours ago?
I had a crabby lunch.
Crabby. Not crappy.
Bought a Groupon deal for a 'crabilicous' meal at Maple Palace and decided to go for it this afternoon with the parents. Made reservations and turned up. Easy peasy.
Waa-laaa! Lo and behold, this pair of tools were already waiting for us at our table.
Talk about good service! If you must know, our little tea cups were never empty throughout our meal, no thanks to the very 'attentive' service from the waiters and waitresses there
(to the point where mom was slightly annoyed).
Cue papa's voice: Too much of a good thing is bad. Hehe.
But it's nice to know that you don't get second-tiered treatment merely because you arrived with a coupon deal. Overall, I'll give Maple Palace an A for service. The price on the other hand, well, it's not outrageously expensive but let's just say it's not a place for your everyday casual lunch. Oh wait, not my everyday casual lunch. Judging by the customers around us, this is the place for their everyday casual lunch. Each to their own affordability I guess.
And our great Salted Egg Crab with Glutinous Rice arrived,
looking all mouth-watering yummy delicious.
And that's poor mama allowing the camera to eat first before she does. Hahaha.
We ordered another extra plate for Stir Fried Lotus with Lily Buds and Green Vegetables which now I looked at it was in fact missing Lily Buds and Green Vegetables. Hahaha. Though I don't mind the mushrooms, wood ears, cauliflower, baby corns and everything else that came with it either.
The price of RM15 is actually pretty reasonable judging from the ingredients and the place. Though just like any other restaurants, you'll end up forking a lot of a little extras for tea, peanuts, napkins, etc, etc, etc. And RM2.00 for parking. Hmmph.
But it was an enjoyable meal and I guess once in awhile you just gotta pay that little bit of extra to feast a class above your daily meals. I bet that's how I ended up coming home feeling 'oddly happy' enough to actually blog about it.
Till god knows when... :)
