Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

When you're feasting for free...

by Volvoxx On December 26, 2007 3:37 AM
(I freakin started this post on 1st December...finally had time to fix the photos and finish the post...x.x)



Its great when you look at the menu, the juicy and scrumptious food in the pictures there, and when you look at the price tag that comes along with it, and you think to yourself that it doesn't matter. Price, for once, did not matter.


Wow. Everything seem so cheap all of a sudden. lolz!


Great things like that don't come often but I was pretty lucky to get a chance to dine free at Fridays.


Thanks Nuffnang and Fridays!


Quj and I tried to squeeze in a day-trip to KL into our schedule. Since it was Sem2, everything was pretty packed for most of us. I was taking 3 subjects so it simply means: hell. And he has his Magic tourneys to attend this weekend or the next. It was just... @.@ Used to be so convenient to want to go KL to have a casual fun trip.


Anyways...back to last Friday. Day started with me waking up around 10, realising I had miss my 8am class (...x.x) and quickly get dressed to go to the dentist. Dex was taking me there cuz my tooth suddenly decided to go on strike. Had light breakfast/lunch then jumped on the 1pm bus to KL. Was worried bout roadblocks because of Hindraf that weekend but thankfully, there was no roadblock at Sungai Besi. Instead, there was one earlier at Ayer Keroh tol. ...wtf?


As we were nearing Pudu, there was this awfully long jam which doesn't seem to be moving at all. Getting annoyed and restless, I asked if Quj wanted to just get on Hang Tuah monorail to get to Medan Tuanku station, to collect my TGIF voucher from Nuffnang. He agreed and we quickly got off the bus and headed for the station. God knows how much longer we'd be stuck there if we didn't.


Nuffnang's office at Heritage House was a lil tricky to find. As we arrive at the building lobby, we run thru the office directories and....didn't find the name 'Nuffnang'. Thankfully, I wrote down the address given, and decided to give Esther from Nuffnang a call. ....the call did not connect. I dialed a few more times to no avail. Got a bit panicky and QJ suggested that I just go ahead upstairs to their office. The security officer only allowed one of us to go up so I went while Quj waited there.


As I got to the front door of the office, I tried to look for any indication that I am where I'm supposed to be. Nope. Nothing of much help. I decided to just ring the doorbell on the alarm/doorbell panel and wait. And wait...and...waited. No response. I pressed the doorbell again and still there was no response. "Maybe its not working?"...I thought to myself and decided to knock on the door instead. The sound of the knocking drowned against the thick, stiff wooden door. I heard shuffling from behind the door but there was no one who came to the door. I tried knocking again, this time harder. This time, someone came and opened the door, and as I peered in, 6 or 7 people were looking at me. They look like they were in a meeting. Eekk! Felt really bad for disturbing them like that.


I apologized to Esther as she handed me the voucher and she said it was allright. She was different from what I had imagine her to be but she was very sweet. Had a short chat with her and she said she knew someone from MMU Mlk. Small world? Hee~ I thanked her and quickly left the room, not wanting to disturb them much longer. Phaiseh...hehe.


So, on with the rest of the itinery of the day. To Pudu to get tickets back. Side-trip to Quj's favourite manga shop. Trip to Puchong to get his stock of Lorwyn boosters. Short visit to Sg Wang to get my Olympus 1GB XD-Card changed. (1-to-1 warranty yay! Thankfully still under warranty X3 )...and FINALLY to Pavillion.


First pic after getting the new card... :D


One of my fear was that if TGIF in Pavillion is not yet opened. I had no one to confirm whether or not its open, so all I had was to rely on Google and blogs that mentioned about TGIF there. The moment we got to Level 6, we felt...lost. The Korean restaurant there looked....EXPENSIVE! I'm sure it is. The staff warmly greeted us but really, my pockets were shivering.


As we left the concourse area, things warm up a lil at the familiar sight of Baskin Robins, Times bookstore, and the things you DO usually see in other regular shopping malls. Phew.


After walking a lil further, we spotted TGIF! W00t! And....they were.....singing? o.O .....they are...wow! Its just so cheerful!


TGIF! Thank God it was open already..hee!

We were very warmly greeted and quickly ushered to our table in the non-smoking area. The waitress handed us our menu, promoted their current 3-course Meal offer, and left us to decide on our order.

QJ decided to try the 3-course Meal. I was very tempted too but decided to go for the other more expensive stuff that I'm more unlike to order if I'm paying out of my own pocket...end up picking sumthing from their Jack Daniel's range. The smoothies were awfully tempting but sadly I was still coughing :(

While waiting for our food, we kept ourselves occupied chatting, taking pics, and particularly enjoyed reading the 'fun' paper (i...dunno wat else to call it) on the table.


*snigger*


ROFL!



Nice warm relaxing ambiance.


One look at the color and you know its TGIF...hee...


Hot chocolate...yum!



While I was busy snapping photos of this and that...one of the waiters walked up to us and asked if he could help me take a picture of the both of us. So nice of him!


Me likey! But meh...me freakin under-dressed. Didn't really left much nice clothes at QJ's ^^;

Food came! Picture speaks louder than words. So if you're hungry while reading this post...steer away now! You HAVE been warned...hehe...


Mac 'N' Cheese Bites. Super yummy! Who would have thought u can fry these stuff!


...makes me wanna go eat it again...


Jack Daniel's Chicken and Shrimp...the mashed potato was especially nice!


Mouth-watering. Taste good just like dat...but taste even better with the sauce dip :D



QJ's Cajun Fried Chicken Salad and the sauce


Mocha Mud Pie!! Soooooooooooooooo sedap! Better than Baskin Robin's ice cream cake x.x...
Regret didn't bring QJ here for his birthday...


What happens after the meal...was a bit of a disaster. I kinda lost track of time (or rather, lost track of the distance between Pavillion and Pudu...and made us miss the last bus back. Err...lol?

THANKFULLY...my sister was around....otherwise I'd have to go Quj's....errr...malunya... x.x ...I'd not want my first trip there to be under such circumstances.....


"Ello sis....err...U in PJ aa?"

"Ya...why?"

"...kinda need a place to crash for the night"

"...."

"We missed the bus."

"....like dat oso can wan u. Come la come la..."


So both of us (QJ followed me back too, for convenience sake) went to stay at my sister's for the night. It felt so much more relaxing after running for our lives trying to get to Pudu in time to catch the bus. And my sister's house is just sooooo damned cozy. Makes me not wanna come back here...having her to chat and gossip is another nice thing bout going there. We sisters have so much to talk about when we're together, resulting in 'sleepless nights' when both me and my 2nd sister go there to stay. Its either Grey's Anatomy, some random movie, looking thru my sister's stash of digital photos, tonnes of stories and gossips, recipe book...etc etc..

But that's already another story...for another day.

So yeah...TGIF, overall...
Ambiance: good
Service: great
Food: awesome

Having all of them free: priceless

Damn...I wanna go there again....

    Hey you! Haha... /wave

    You eh...mmmm...that 'image' I had of you back then was much clearer then...now...lemme try to remember :P

    I thought of you as a slim, short (bob-cut) hair and much older person. Why? Maybe cuz my mum had this colleague of hers named Esther as well I guess. At least the 'slim' part is right :D and you turned out much cheerful of a person than I though you'd be... lol...silly me eh?

    Thanks for reading XD ...
