Sweet surprise@Cafe Barbera, Jalan Maarof, Bangsar

Demona: Thanks to this card.. we scored a free cuppa coffee! Only the hot coffee choices are worth investing. We ordered a cold one, and it was filled with froth and almost nil coffee. Bummer.

Cafe Barbera, was a real stumble upon sorta experience. Dogma and I drove by Bangsar after church service and saw this homely looking’ cafe, subtly hypnotizing us pull over and walk in.

Demona: The view of the cafe as we entered really got us (especially me, excited). Its design and layout surely gave me a cozy, comfortable, easy going feeling which makes anyone wants to take a seat, get your order going and read the news for the day whilst waiting for the meal to come.

Demona: The beef panini sandwich was huge! And they were surely generous with the beef slice serving. Fairly thick and juicy. We only finished half of it and doggie-bagged the other half for our hungry tummies later on. RM15.

Demona: They do make fairly good pizza. The crust was thin, crunchy but just thickened enough for a little fluff, chewy feel in the middle of the pizza where most the ingredients were laid on. Cheese ain’t cheesier than this alright! RM 20.

Thumbs up!!

The food and drinks were really, quite nice and for once, I’d thought that the price was pretty decent! Enough to make me feel like coming again and again, for coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, glutton session, whatever.

Unfortunately, the good times were short and sweet while it lasted. A couple of weeks later, when I went brought my doctor there for lunch (whos also a foodie person), the price on the menu had already been jacked up at least 10 dollars more. GRRRRRRRRRR…
Luckily, the free coffee coupon was still valid then (I don’t think they have it anymore now)

Since the last free coffee… I haven’t had a chance to go back there since. Hm.. wonder how’s things at the cafe now?

CNY House Party at M’s

It was a warm warm CNY again in 2010.
Sweltering heat with pearl sized sweat dripping over Dogma’s angular chin, we seek refuge at M’s house party over the weekend.

We gobbled down tons of food (tumerik chicken wings, vegetarian duck-wannabe, beehoon and a myriad of home baked cakes and the finely sliced Prawn Salad in thousand island dressings) and wash it down with bottom-less Heineken fountains.

It was a nice meal and drinks but like all good things, the joyous meal came to an abrupt end, when the host systematically clean up Dogma’s wallet during the night long gambling marathon.

Dogma managed to made it out alive, albeit RM80 poorer

It must have been the dog with a quirky stare that took my luck away.

A nice party nonetheless.
