I’ll be home for Christmas…

Many of my ex-students are home for Chirstmas, airfare over RM400 via the cheap airline and they say it will be over RM1K when they come home for Chinese New Year end of next month. One of them, Mike, contacted me…

…and invited me out to lunch on X’mas Eve, together with Raymond…

…and Chok Hin…

They’re all JPA scholars, currently doing their foundation studies in KL. Mike’s going to Germany and the other two to Australia. We met at The Ark and since they’re not working yet and get a monthly allowance of around RM400 only, I just had the one-dish lamb curry rice (RM9.50)…

…and all of them had the lemon chicken rice (RM6.50), probably sick of curry already after half a year in KL!

Thanks so much for the treat, boys! It sure is nice to be remembered. Incidentally, if anybody’s thinking that’s not very substantial, take a look at this…

Cafe2's RM60 Xmas Eve dinner - main course

My ex-tuition students, Alex aka jienster and his brother Andrew aka dunky, are home for Christmas from Melbourne and they had this at another place with their family – a RM60.00 Christmas Eve 4-course dinner. No, that was not the appetiser; that was the main course! At The Ark, they also had a set 4-course dinner for Christmas (and probably will have the same for New Year as well) with a choice of chicken (RM45.00) or lamb shank (RM60.00) for the main course.

Personally, I would rather go for the eat-all-you-can buffet at Kingwood Hotel – RM60.oo++ on the eve and RM45.oo++ on Christmas or New Year’s Day. You can check this out at cheekybear’s blog. I was planning to go on Christmas night but changed my mind as I came down with a flu. I think I’ll be going with my family on New Year’s night instead. Anybody wants to join us?
