Post Gym Session Lonely Dinners



Demona: There are some nights where you feel broke, you have no great dinner parties to attend, you feel lazy, your palate seems off, your body is worn out from a long day at work… these do take a downhill turn on dinner meal choices.

These feelings usually hit me several days in a week, sometimes less, sometimes more. Especially after signing up to FitnessFirst nearby home, Village Grocer has now become one of my dinner sources.

Below are some of my weeknight dinner companions:

Demona: I usually leave the gym around 8 pm, just in time for …. FOODIE PROMO!

The bakery and japanese food section usually have promo deals from 8 pm onwards. As for the Village Grocer bakery, it is totally worth it as the pastries are actually quite delicious and they will sell them at 1+1. In fact, the same exact pastries are being sold with a golden price tag in that posh looking bakery located in the gourmet food area, under Cold Storage in Bangsar Shopping Centre. Bet a lot of people did not notice this. And in fact (num.2), some pastries are being served to us during our free breakfast meals in office. I’m not sure if we are considered lucky to be treated with premium pastries… or in fact, they are seriously cheap and we were donkeys to pay a premium price in BSC/Village Grocer.

Okay, I think I have side tracked. Back to the Jap food. Yeah, the party set is priced at… 50% off! The humongous thing is sold at RM 19.45. Woo hoo hoo. Ate with happiness under my comforter while catching up on my “The Mentalist” series. And then regret for not finishing them and over-carbing myself.

Anyway… I did come back another day, for party set round 2!


Demona: Since several months back, I suddenly developed an addiction towards NZ Sauvignon Blanc. I have this thirsty keenness to try new NZ Sauv Blancs. Hole In The Water was one of my top favourites. I’ve purchased 2 bottles already, and given another to my girlfriend as a birthday gift. Very strong fruity smell, somewhat lychee and has a smooth finish. Easy to drink, without a need to drink with food. Looking at this picture makes me want to grab another bottle from the wine section in Village Grocer.

RM 54.90.


Demona: For those who know me well.. they know that I’m an insane KokoKrunchKrankyKrazy addict. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a couple of days and still crave for it.
They are dinner saviours for me on some lazy nights when I’m too lazy to cook, I forgotten to defrost my meat, I crave for something sweet.

1996 La Pousse D’or Volnay Premier Cru Les Cailleret


I have bought this feminine wine for a special occasion…
but Alas, on a unsuspecting night, the fridge decided to took her life by freezing her up and forcing the cork to pop up…The wine look like a giant frozen Popsicle

Most of the wine were intact in the bottle thou in a frozen state
and i decided to honour such a graceful, aged lady by drinking her up..

Clear, silky blood colour, with some orange hue at the rim..
After 1 hour of breathing, she opened up and show a complex nose of banyard, blood, iron, and earth intermingled with morelo cherry.
On the palate, it has a medium density, and end with a tea like after palate.

Silky Lady, just flowed graciously and seamlessly upon your lips………..ahhhhhh

Paul Seah from Singapore rated it 94pt: Lovely nose, almost Chambolle like, with lush, perfumed flowers and truffle notes wed too earthy sous bous and meat scents and lovely dark cherries and strawberries, all unfolding in dark, deep, aromatic layers. A bit tight on the palate at first, with lots of mineral on the attack and lots of freshness lent by high acidity. It unwound rather quickly though, to show fleshy red cherries and strawberries in a really clean, pure red fruit expression, all seasoned with an undertone of umami. Finish had great length and lots of complexity, with touches of spice, orange peel and anise mingling with the clean fruit expressions. Very nice, just starting to come together. If you have a bottle, keep it for another 2-3 years to really do it justice

We did not do the La Pousse D’or justice by sending her off together with Chip n Chips BBQ flavours chips.
The chips was quite a let down and i will skip talking more about it..

Let’s tune our mind back to La Pousse D’or, who allowed us to have a taste of her amist her tragic and unexpected death..

An Ode to You!
