Nieyko the birthday girl!

It’s another year and another birthday surprise for our birthday girl, Nieyko! This round, we did a little more where we reserved a nice little room in HK Hot Pot @ Bangsar 香港热锅 (special thanks to Jean for getting us a place). It was a steamboat cum karaoke dinner party with the Avidians last Monday 16th October 2017.

As usual, the surprise effect wasn’t that convincing and most of the guys were late and Stephanie (our new support) has to slow her down while we prepared the room an wait for the rest to arrive. Well, can’t say Steph didn’t pull it off but that’s as much she can do. When they came in, only 4 of us is in the room! Hahaha…

Nevertheless, the rest came and finally we started the steamboat dinner immediately. The food was awesome as we know it (we came here once before) and those who like to sing got off to an early start while we waited for the rest of the food to arrive.

As you can see, the birthday girl is happy and the cake (also thanks to Jean) is absolutely marvellous. Macadamia & cheese if I remember correctly? It’ll be on my order list for sure. There is also enough liquor to satisfy all of us..

For those who are not familiar with this place, it is located at Lot 9 & 10, Level 2, Telawi Square, no.39 Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They now occupy the ground floor too. The restaurant opens at 4:00pm and closes at midnight. But we went past all the way till 1:30am that night.

We really hoped Nieyko enjoyed the dinner and the not-so-surprise party.

Well, the surprised didn’t end there. Since my darling wife was still in the US during that week, we got her to get us a ladies handbag as a gift for the birthday girl.  And today, while she was leisurely working in the office, we surprised her again with the gift! Hah. Nothing really fancy but a nice solid little Michael Kors Selma Stud Satchel Medium Black.  And of course, something from NuSkin is always nice!!

So, another year, we pulled it off and she is definitely looking forward to her next one. We just want to wish her all the best in everything she does and stay happy and healthy always!  Stay cool and crazy as always!

Post Hari Raya celebration @ Avid office

Thank you Naz! We had a wonderful and *burp* sumptuous lunch yesterday and the day before, courtesy of Naz, our beloved snr. agent/lecturer/tutor/mommy/buddy/caterer.  It was supposed to be just a simple post, Hari Raya lunch date with the team but turned out the meal was more and extravagant than expected.

The meal started right off our monthly meeting around noon time all the way till late evening. Most of the Avidians turned up and had a blast. Obviously, the food was way over-ordered/prepared and everyone had more than what they ‘officially’ could.

There was biriyani rice with chicken and mutton, marvellous beef, mutton and chicken pies, nasi lemak with deliciously home-made prawn sambal, pavlova, baklava, eclairs, salted caramel apple pie, chocolate creme cake and of course, wine and sake to go with those!

The real estate market is still recovering but to make it through the difficult times, more often than not, we need to be with motivated and goal oriented individuals to push through. We don’t do this alone. Fill your daily labour with happiness and hope.  This is where you detached yourself from the negatives and the downside of the society.

Avid Estates may not be on the forefront in terms of real estate popularity and the deals it closes. But the togetherness and professionalism from the team more than make-up for it.  This is not a one man show nor it is a battle that needs to be victorious every time. It is about a war that needs to be won thru friendship and dedication.

Form is temporary, class is permanent.

Food, food everywhere

Hey guys. It has been awhile since my last post here. Been busy with everything and nothing super duper cool happened for the past couple of weeks. But looking at the title, you know I’ve something to share about food.

Yes, a few of us Avidians had this for lunch a few days back and it wasn’t easy to gather like this with us agents running around looking for biz during lunch hour. But this is where we ended up –  The Ganga Cafe @ Taman Bukit Pantai, Bangsar.

This is actually a vegetarian outlet but one look at the menu and the food displayed, you wouldn’t even notice and the food is so delicious and those mock meats taste almost…almost like the real thing!

If you look at the 4th picture, the Mutton Nasi Lemak, which I had, it tasted really good and the ‘vege-mutton’ taste like- well, mutton! The coconut milk-rice is so fragrant and milky, you don’t feel like finishing it.

The Maggi Goreng and Nasi Goreng Ganga looked spicy not only on the outside, it tasted fiery on the inside as well. But this plate of Maggi Goreng can put shame to those of your regular mamaks’. The Nasi Goreng is cooked almost the same way but with a little ‘mock meat’ thrown into it! The portion is also pretty good for it’s price.

The Naan and Bathura is also something you should try here. Not only the breads are fresh and tasty, the side dishes and its condiments compliment it nicely.

One particular dish, I had to mentioned. You see the greenish dish with white dabs? That’s the Saag Paneer. Saag Paneer is a classic Indian dish of cooked spinach studded with cubes of fried Paneer cheese, thickened with cream or coconut milk. This is one of the best dish from Ganga Cafe. It was introduced to me by my fellow colleagues and my, it doesn’t looked appetizing but it sure taste good!

We will end up here quite often especially when we crave for India vegetarian food. Who knows, you might catch us there during lunch time. We could be the loudest and most happening bunch there! Haha…

Hop over to Ganga Cafe for a treat if you’re somewhere in Bangsar.
