Delicious Afternoon!

Last Thursday, I had lunch with two good friends from school. The place was
Delicious, One Utama and the plan was to meet at 12.30pm. This was way too early for my night owl ways so I stayed up all night in anticipation of this date for fear of oversleeping and completely missing the whole thing. But I was not late and the three of us enjoyed a very nice afternoon eating, laughing and basically catching up. Smiley

Shyam and Cal

Cal, Shyam and I were classmates in high-school, which makes us Assuntarians hailing from our beloved Assunta Secondary School. After high school, we went our separate ways but managed to keep in touch over the years. As always, whenever we meet, Shyam will give me a pep talk on credit cards; reminding me to cut my cards already and just end this credit card phase once and for all! And as usual, I'll reply with my standard "I need my credit card" look! Smiley

I know that excessive use of credit cards can lead to addiction but they do come in handy when I am in need of something pricey pronto! I always try to repay my banks ASAP of course and frankly, it's just easier to carry plastic around rather than paper.

Does it sound like I'm making excuses? LOL! The truth is I like having my credit cards around. In fact, that's actually the first thing I look for in a store. A store carrying the 'we accept credit card' sign or a restaurant with restaurant merchant account credit card payment facilities definitely appeals more to the credit card user in me! Smiley

I think every store should accept credit cards as a payment option. As a customer I'd want to have my option in paying for my purchases even if it means using my almost maxed-out credit card! ihikhik

Back to my lunch, I had Carbonara that day and Shyam had the Beef Pie. After the many good reviews I've heard about Delicious, I was expecting something scrumptious. Sad to say, I've tasted better Carbonara. Apparently, Delicious is now under new management so perhaps that explains the possible change in the kitchen department.

Beef Pie

Callie who arrived later only had watermelon juice. No wonder she's so skinny, even after having three beautiful kids! tepuktangan

Cal and Marzie

For dessert, we shared a sticky date cake with ice cream and butterscotch sauce, which I thought was the best dish of the entire meal. Smiley


Before we parted ways, we made plans for another session soon. And despite not sleeping all night, I had a wonderful afternoon with my friends and next lunch date will be my turn to organize. I'm thinking hi-tea in a nice hotel! rindu

Shyam, Cal and Me

Beef pie must be delicious right? I would love to have the dessert that you had. :p

soulie,  February 28, 2011 12:43 AM

The dessert looks great! *drool*. I agree with you on credit card. I love my cc, we just have to discipline bayar thats all :)

Mariuca,  February 28, 2011 7:45 AM

Ahahahaha not thick enough right Tekkaus? Anyway the carbonara was just okay nothing to shout about...mostly ate the bacon parts and cheese... :-P :-P

Mariuca,  February 28, 2011 7:46 AM

My friend said not so nice... so looks can be deceiving ah? he he he! But yeah the dessert was gorgeous, only had a few bites but it was very yum... surprising since I am not really into dates.. *DONT_KNOW* *DONT_KNOW*

Mariuca,  February 28, 2011 7:48 AM

Everyone seems to love the dessert so far and yeah, u must try Soulie! And yay for loving CC also ahahahahhaha got fren!!! :-D :-D :-D :-$ :-$

Shemah,  February 28, 2011 8:46 AM

Hey Marzie!!

Yalah.. The last time I went to Delicious pun so disappointing edi.. that's why we don't go there anymore. The Duck Confit and Spaghetti pesto which are their signature dishes are not that good also pun. Tp desserts still taste pretty much the same. Carbonara dia kat situ mmg tak berapa pun.. even Pizza Uno's carbonara tastes much better.

Yeah, the management dah tukar, but dunno if that's the cause.. but since buka puasa kat sana last year, dah tak pegi dah..

Shemah,  February 28, 2011 8:50 AM

Hahaha you are the ambassador for CC, how can cut it off??!! hahaha yalah one thing CC is so convenient.. kalau nak beli emergency flight tickets or hotel stays.. J and I don't have CC.. my mother also don't have CC anymore she cut it all off. We all use our debit cards je.. Spend only the money we have.

Tp still.. debit card pun ada limit. There was one place that doesn't charge over rm3000 on debit. That's why when we go shopping with mom, she has to carry so much cash that we have to flank her right and left side like bodyguard. LOL!! Imagine gi Pavvy without CC. Not safe lah jugak..

Oh the pros and cons of having a CC... :S

Shemah,  February 28, 2011 8:57 AM

Your friend Cal so gorgeous!! some women just have it all!! hahahaha i pun nak minum watermelon juice je wherever i go. tanak makan!!! hahaahah

Life Ramblings,  March 02, 2011 9:14 PM

glad you had a blast with your frens. it must be brilliant catching up with them.

Life Ramblings,  March 02, 2011 9:15 PM

I miss not being in touch with lots of my ex-classmates. :(

Life Ramblings,  March 02, 2011 9:16 PM

Anyway, Cal looks fabulous, she has such great features. :)

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:23 AM

I know right? So glad I finally got around to having a mini reunion with my buds, u should organize one soon too LR! :D

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:23 AM

It was, we had a wonderful afternoon and now waiting for May to catch up once more! :D

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:24 AM

Thanks LR, she has always been gorgeous! :D

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:25 AM

Ha ha Cal is naturally skinny Shemah, grrrrr… makan apa pun tak F more grrrrr… lol! :D:D

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:26 AM

I don’t mind being the ambassador of CC ha ha! Which bank wants to take me?? He he.. yeah seriously my CC was ohsem during my last vacay as well, cash pun pakai jugak of course but sometimes u just wanna swipe for something big and parting with credit is so much easier than parting with cash so yeah… .keeping my CCs around for sure! :D:D

Mariuca,  March 06, 2011 3:28 AM

Hey Shemah, I was truly disappointed with the pasta simply cause yes tasted so much better at a few other restos so that says a lot abt Delicious’ carbonara.. nonetheless I still enjoyed the dessert.. maybe just go back for dessert, definitely won’t order main meal there … ;)
