An Izzi Weekend

Weekend of 26th Jan ~ 28th Jan


After a long day (and week) of work, I decided to chill out and wanted to let loose all my woes and wicked worries off my tired back. So I called up a few buddies and we decided to head to a friend’s apartment in Mount Kiara to chill out. Literally. The first thing we did there was to jump straight into the blissful blue of the apartment pool but as usual, we did not anticipate the ‘coolness’ of the pool and we found out that the waters was freakin’ freezing. No matter, the pool was too good to ignore, I mean it has a damn bar in the middle of the pool, how cool is that? That night the bar was closed and no one was there to attend it, so we took it to our own and made contorted concoctions of Coke with Nescafe and beer with Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Let me tell you the drinks are NOT recommended (it gives you severe gas, and being in the pool with this problem make you look like you are breathing from your behind with all those bubbles shooting out from the water). Satisfied with our bubbly underwater musical, we chilled out at the pool decks and took in the rooftop view of the crescent moon with slight joinings of silvery clouds and joyful interruptions of rain drizzles. Cool, calm and caressed by bliss, I was in rooftop heaven.

Halfway through our voyage to heaven, it started to rain pretty heavily but what the heck, we were having too much fun so we bummed at the pool bar all to our own until midnight. Of course being a swimming pool and raining, it was kinda chilly and having to be half naked from 8pm until midnight in freezing waters, I got back home and had the sneezies. Being the weakling that I am, off goes the air-conditioning and off to bed at 2am.


Well let me tell you about THIS Saturday. It started off slowly as I woke up at ‘noon and being the fool that I am, I went to the office to pump up my OT amounts and of course worked off some office assignments. Took off at around 5pm and went straight to Ampang to hang out with SL. SL had RM40 of Nando’s vouchers; we decided to spend the entire RM40 that night. Off to KLCC and I ordered a whole half chicken with rice and chips for myself, and she had a quarter chicken with salad and chips. Actually I suggested ordering a Platter which can easily feed 4 mal-nutrition refugees, but I decided to be humble and settle for a half chicken instead.

We chitchatted and grubbed all the food without hesitation (at least I had no hesitation anyway), but it seems it was not enough. Our demanding CEO of cuisine provisions operations (also known as our stomach) was crying out for more, so we headed off to Genki Sushi to nip and tuck. Now if this was a movie, this part would be where the big fight scenes occur, where the good guy fights the bad guy, where the climax of any movie takes place. Because in this movie, just when I was about to leave Genki Sushi, the ‘Director of the movie’ (or God in this case) decided to make things interesting. When I was walking towards the door and looking down at my bill and happily calculating the discount given from Citibank, I smashed right in front of the glass door and caused a shockwave of glass tremors measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale all across the Genki Peninsular. But honestly speaking, my head or whatever DID NOT hit the glass, only MY FOOT hit the glass so in a way I DID NOT HIT THE BLOODY GLASS!!! *sigh* I’M NEVER GOING BACK THERE EVER AGAIN!!!!

Walking around KLCC in a piss-off mood, I decided to abandon KLCC for the night and we headed up to Saga Hill to take in some fresh air and enjoy the view of the KL skyline. We minum-minum until 12:30am and then headed back to SL’s house to watch Man Utd Vs Portsmouth which Man Utd won with contributions by Rooney’s spectacular goals. After that, it was good nite until Sunday.


It’s the main event of the weekend whereby me, V, S, and SL went to this Izzi Restaurant very near to Lot 10 and stuffed ourselves silly with some pretty good Italian food. The place was kinda pricey but you see, they were having this promotion for Citibank credit cards and they were dishing out 60% discounts on the final bill!!! So we let loose our taste buds and pull away our wallet restrictions to order as many dishes as possible. In the end, we over ordered and over eaten but left satisfied with the place. Overall the deco was nice with an interesting toilet design to boot plus good service, I have to say this place is indeed recommended!!!!

Left the restaurant at 9pm, but the night was mighty young. Hence, what to do what to do? We tried to ‘sing K’ but their package offerings were RM35 for dinner and non-stop singing per pax!! As we had our dinners, we abandoned this plan and headed to the nearest Dome café to chill out ‘till 11pm. We talked ‘kok’ a lot and discussed on our planned trip to Bali, but as usual, nothing concrete was mentioned and continued to ‘kok’ until laughing like drunken hyenas high on the best drug in the world: Happiness.

Dome reached its closing time, we reached our point of satisfied ‘kok’-ness and decided to adjourn for the night, thus adjourned for the weekend that was indeed, Izzi.

The weekend that was SHIT

Weekend of ‘Jan 20 ~ ‘Jan 21.


If I need to sum up this weekend in a word, it would be SHIT. First, the wedding dinner on Saturday I had to sit with my boss. I have no qualms with my boss, but it’s just that he LOVES to drink. And I got to qualms about that too. But the problem is, he LOVES to drink with others, and he stuffs you with so much hard liquor on your glass that u will be sipping alcohol through your pores. I went out to drink with him so many times and I dread it every time. I mean I love to drink to get tipsy you know, to get all high and laugh at anything with friends. But not get piss-ass drunk till you choke on your own vomit laying on the bathroom floor screaming for ‘mama’ through bits of dinner gunk on the tips of my slimy lips. Enough was enough, I quietly changed seats in the middle of the 3rd food serving. Good riddance to him.

Overall the dinner was kinda fun, as we don’t get the chance for the whole office gang to hang out often. We took lotsa pix and ate fantastically as the food was surprisingly good (for a wedding reception). It’s a place in Nilai (near the Nilai toll gate) called Restoran Loon Sing and this place was built like a bloody villa, with ample parking space. And inside, it’s huge. It can accommodate maybe 150 ++ tables? No idea, just an estimate but its BIG.

Food to look out for: “The Buddha Jumping Over The Wall” (Chinese dish lah). With a name like that you cannot possibly go wrong can you? I wonder what’s next, I just can’t wait for something called “Uncle Lim Giving Me Money” or “Ang Pow Everyday”. But seriously folks, a dish called “Buddha Palm” would be good: each of Buddha’s fingers will have delicious and scrumptious Chinese delicacies. Now fill in each finger with your favorite Chinese delicacy. Now imagine. YuuuuMmmmmmm~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well the dinner ended at approx 10:30pm, (early leh), I called some frens for yamca but everyone got plans already (sigh). So went back home and played my PS2 instead. I kicked some serious ass on Pro Evo 6 (football game). Satisfied with myself, I went to bed at 4am. (still early leh).


As any football fan will know, Saturday night had a game with Chelsea visiting Liverpool. With the dinner going on last night, I had to miss the game. So I PURPOSELY save myself from the final score so that I can watch the re-run on Sunday 1:00pm with greater excitement and anticipation. But before I can even on my TV, my mum screamed right in front of my face that CHELSEA LOST. I immediately ran off to take a cold shower and screamed. Ok fine, I knew the outcome. But I dunno the score and how the game went right? Ok ok, no problems, I came out of the cold shower and sat down again. But before I can switch the TV back on, my mum came out of nowhere and screamed THEY LOST 2-0 AND KUYT AND PENNANT SCORED AND THIS AND THAT. At that moment I smashed my head against the TV and screamed.

Well, what to do. This kinda thing happens. With my head safety back out of the dead TV, I went out to Ampang to see SL. I was totally out of mood to chat and all that, so we quickly went to Sushi King to makan makan, and went up to an area in Ampang with a spectacular view of KL and a cool breeze and we both chit chatted and read my novel. With a hot mocha latte to boot, I was back to my good old self again. ~~*bliss*~~.

As any football fan will also know, Sunday midnight was Man Utd visiting Arsenal. So before I let my mum have to chance to screw up things further, I arranged with my footie pals to a mamak stall in Sunway to watch the game. The mamak stall was full, the crowd was in ecstatic mood and the food was delicious (I was as usual hungry).

I burst into joy when Rooney nodded in the lead. With Chelsea losing and MU leading 1-0, this weekend was gonna be good after all. But how cruel life is. Around 20 minutes later Arsenal equaled with a fine Van Persie goal, and an even finer flick from maestro Henry for V. Persie to score. But the big stab to my small humble heart was during the very last minute, the very last second even, Arsenal scored the winner through a Henry goal that gave all the glory to Arsenal.

From Man Utd leading 1-0, they ended up losing 1-2. How cruel life is. I left the mamak with my head down and my heart exploded with a giant Arsenal knife sticking to it. And that same knife is still sticking to my heart even till this day. The weekend was indeed, SHIT.

“Before the shit hits the fan, run!!”
