Turning 40, and Thanks To All

Well, what can I say. I had a blast on Friday night, turning 40 and all. The venue, Isthmus, the restaurant opened by Mr K and KTT (name changed from KSL, after we found out See Lai means middle class housewife), and what a GREAT venue. I could not have hoped for a better venue. The food was excellent, everyone was raving about it. The layout was .... well, better than any hotel. We had the mezzanine all to ourselves, to have cocktails, and chit chat, and the upper mezzanine, two rows of 20 each, for a sit down dinner.

To be honest, I can't quite coherently recall what happened once the mains were served. I recall a touching toast read by dear Chinese Woman Married to Malay Man, on behalf of Woman I Am Scared Of. Margaritas, shots, wine and bubbly flowed freely. It's been a long time since such a large group of us have met up for some serious drinking. Then again, was it only me who was plastered? Well, I know of a few casualties. The night before, ie Thursday night, was celebrated with the family and kids.

Anyway, it's a myth that the day you turn 40 you immediately need reading glasses.

Thank you all for a wonderful time; and the wonderful presents; the wonderful Ipaq pocket computer, the mini compo, the extra Kenwood Bowl for the Kenwood chef, and whisk, which has already been used, the Louis Vuitton Wallet, my first LV product, (as in not from Petaling Street), the beautiful cake plate from Godma and book, the electronic scale (not to weigh myself, but to weigh food ingredients), the nike shirt and nike bag, the certificate for the patisserie course in HTC, the Wedgewood double tier cake plate, ....I love them all, and I love you all. Oh, and the astromax from my darling sister.

By the way, I made all my own birthday cakes. One for each decade. There was a lemon cheesecake, a rum and raisin pie, a chocolate mudcake, and a walnut coffee sour cream cake.

Congratulations On Your Opening

To my dearest dearest friends, KSL and Mr K, may I offer my heartiest congratulations on the opening of your new restaurant Isthmus, which I am sure will offer a host of dining pleasures, to the socialites and non socialites, gourmets, gourmands, gluttons, plebians of KL.

We await with great anticipation for the grand opening.

Anyway, guys and girls, it's a lovely set up, in the new Northpoint buildings, next to midvalley megamall. Basically it's on the route to Seputeh, if you're going around the megamall loop, and is on the ground floor, where the large open courtyard is, and as you enter, its in the building on the left, ie, block B I think. The restaurant is called ISTHMUS, and is affiliated to that chain of restaurants in Melbourne, Isthmus of Kra, Monsoon and Madam Fang. (ie, one of the owners owns or used to own those restaurants). I hear their trademark baked oysters in terra cotta plates will be featured here as well.

Please call me if you want further information and directions.
