Sundate – Of Fat Cats, IKEA, Awesome Canteen & Kaki-Gori Shaved Ice


I had a big fight with my M on Saturday. The usual shit.

Didn’t feel like staying at home on Sunday, so I picked Evelyn up from her apartment and we went to her boss’ house to feed a fat cat. The name of the cat is Why Why…. appropriate, since I wanted to ask Why it was so unfriendly. Tried to scratch me when I put my hand out for it to smell…so I laid off any sort of petting. It then went to hide under the bed. Silly fat cat.


Headed to IKEA for lunch. Note to self: Never go to IKEA on a Sunday afternoon. Wasted a good half an hour circling the area looking for a spot, and a further half hour lining up to get our food, then another 15 minutes looking for a clean table.

We got loads of food though. Salmon Gravlax with baby potato salad, warm, hearty cups of cream of mushroom soup, buttery croissants, and soft rolls.


The gravlax got overwhelming salty after a bit, so it was good that there was bread so I could make it into a sandwich. The rest of the platter was delish – greens were fresh and crunchy.


Two girls can put that much away? Believe it.


Went to watch a Musical in KL (which I’ll blog about in another post), then headed for dinner at Taman Paramount in PJ. Evelyn is on a vegetarian diet, so she had the customary salad.


The meat eater in me wouldn’t abate, so Beef Don it was. The generous bowl was topped with purple cabbage, onions, tender teriyaki-drenched slices of meat, poached egg and pickled radishes.

There was still room for sweets, so we went to the much hyped about Kaki-Gori, along the same row. Here, they serve giant Japanese shaved ice desserts, in flavours such as matcha with red bean, and roasted soy bean.  It looks impossible to eat, but when you’re two girls with a tooth for sweets, the mountain of ice depletes pretty fast.
