Delicious at Dua Annexe

Recently Updatediii

Outside, it's raining and wet and I am stuck in a JAM on Jalan Tun Razak. Just my luck.. this evening I have a run, but looks like due to wet weather conditions, that will be cancelled too.

This is bad. I need something to cheer me up.

Recently Updated

I pull into Dua Annexe and things start to look a little brighter. I see a friend and decide that my luck is well and truly improving.
I sit down, we chat, we order the Lamb chops -exquisitely succulent with a zingy mint sauce to dull the gamy taste of the meat, the cod fish - light, oceanic and sweet, and by the time we hit desserts, I have forgotten what a lousy, rainy day it has been.

Digging into my pavlova and carrot cake I am totally over my annoyance at the KL jam and am ready to take on the second half of the day again.

See how a nice meal with a kind friend can turn a day around.

I drive off into the jam again and this tune plays on the radio..

"Things can only get better
Can only get, can only get
They get on from here
You know, I know that
Things can only get better

I sometimes lose myself in me
I lose track of time
And I can't see the world's formed trees
You set them alight, burning the bridges as you go
I'm too weak to fight you
I got my personal health to deal with
And you say

Walk my path
Wear my shoes
Talk like me
I'll be an angel and

Things can only get better
Can only get better
Now I've found you
(That means me)
(Will you teach me now)
Things can only get better
Can only get better
Now I've found you - D:ream"

I agree. I totally agree!

i can really empathize! i spend eight dreary hours at the office every workday, and having dinner with my buddies in the evening is the light at the end of the tunnel!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

ahahah...was back there again on quiet and to get angry at the traffic jam rite?

Paprika said...

I couldn't agree with you more! A little bit of sugar always helps me lift my mood. Well by a little I actually mean a slice (or two) of cake :-). Glad you were in a better mood.

dontcha just wish that it will rain every evening and you can skip your runs and have a delicious meal at delicious?

*confession of a lazy pig, me*

Where you dine doesn't matter (well, maybe yes depending on the food)... it's the companionship that really brightened up the day, isn't it???
Bumping into a friend on an odd day... without any planning on the dining place... is really fateful :)

yar man.. u don't wanna see me in heavy traffic! growl:P

Nice complete meal. The tendency to fight the jam all the way is an urban disease. Beating the jam has taken on a completely new twist.

but then again happy eating lamb or red meat ( some meats are extra warm, you know )
