I got an invitation to join these fellow bloggers for dinner two days ago. I was undecided by then, knowing that I would be very busy the next day. I rearranged my schedule and got home early yesterday. Sempat join diorang for dinner. Five of us all together. Beruang Madu, Dr. Shah, Arel, Hairie, and of course, me lah. Suddenly I felt like I was standing among the giants. I was the kecikiest among them.

Dr. Shah brought along his DSLR. Busy taking photos of the food and the surrounding as I did.
Hairie, whom I'd known for many years.
So I considered myself lucky as I stay nearby to this restaurant that we went to. Seronok ada orang belanja. They invited me for some sort of celebration. Congratulations guys, and thanks for the treat.
I ordered cucumber lime, my favourite. I recommended to them too. Ntah diaorang suka ke tak. Ok kot. This drink is cooling, and especially good after a spicy meal. Also recommended after taking BBQed food or grilled food. Cucumbers are good anti-carcinogen maaa.
These were some of the food we (or to be exact, Abg bear yang order, kita dok sembang je)had ordered.
My cucumber lime drink to start with.
Yang ni ikan tiga rasa. Ikan apa ntah.
Yang ni pulak, butter prawn yang takde rasa butter dan takde ruper butter prawn (now u can guest how I rate this dish).
Asparagus goreng ni..... erm... erm.... like eating twigs. Obviously, they forgot to peel off the old skin that gave the 'chewing on twigs' feeling.
This is quite ok, stir fried squid with sauce. But I can't find the squid.
All in all, the food was not as good as those at a restaurant at Kuala Selangor (according to Dr. Shah and Beruang Madu), nor at the restaurant next to this one. Lot's of improvements to be done! More pics and reviews can be found at Beruang Madu's blog and Dr. Shah's blog.
But of course, the gathering was not about the food, it's about development of friendship and getting to know each other better. I found them fun to be with. They're very friendly, easy going and completely non-attitude. Cool. It is through blogging that I came to know this bunch of fun loving friends. Now, who said blogging is a waste of time??
