Time flies too fast! It's already past the third week of March O_O

Before [livejournal.com profile] caramichi moved to Singapore for college, we wanted to enjoy ourselves with everything Japanese. Hence we had all you can eat lunch at Poke Sushi and 3-hour karaoke at Doremido.  In truth, we both were still recovering from the flu virus, so it was a pretty funny sight in which my brother laughed at: we both sang with coarse voice & blocked nose due to sinusitis, sneezed and coughed every once in a while, and flipped through the songbook in an attempt to read the dreadful kanji o_O All at the same time, just like twins! *lol*

I'm still craving for more karaoke, so I'm gonna drag another friend to Doremido next week or so ^^ And of course I will try the karaoke place [livejournal.com profile] hemisofia went to last weekend when I go to Singapore next month or so.


I really love the all you can eat lunch at Samudra Shark's Fin, Mulia Hotel. For less than Rp. 70,000++, we can have so many selections of yummy appetizer, soup, dim sum, main course, dessert, drink..... and of course, as many crabs as I can take xD The deep fried crab with salt & pepper, the steamed garoupa fish, and the asparagus tofu with crab roe soup are to die for! :9 My mom, her 3 guests, and I just had a lunch feast last Friday. They didn't even charge us for the leftovers (and yet so many of them, coz we ordered too much :P).

Apparently not enough crabs, the next day my friends and I had seafood dinner at Pondok Latansa, Kelapa Gading. Cheap seafood, yummy taste, couldn't ask for more! As we are crab lovers, the seven of us ordered 4 portions of large crabs :9 I 'm really crab-fully satisfied this week! xD After the seafood feast, I tried the green tea shot at Cafe du Chocolat. Love it lots!


Computer got virus attack last Sunday early morning! >_<
In truth, it was my fault. I wanted to search for mIRC keygen & I deliberately disabled Kaspersky when I downloaded the keygen. Turned out, it was a trojan and it's already too late when I activated Kaspersky in an attempt to clean it. The virus already spreaded and even disabled my Kaspersky & some other apps. I tried to restart, but it wouldn't enter Windows, wouldn't enter safe mode, and kept on restarting itself. Frantically, I called my good friend in the US. He told me I got boot sector virus! Eeeep >_<
I sent it to my cousin (who works in IT) that afternoon. I don't understand hardwares, so it's better if I don't try to fix it myself for it might get worse.

*sigh* 2 computer mishaps in less than 2 months! @_@ I just hope my cousin can save it without reinstalling XP *prays hard* I don't want to go through the pain of reinstalling all program files & restoring all the settings & data one by one all over again! A week of doing so had only taken me to 70% done. Before I could continue, I already had to have it fixed yet again.

Let me tell you an expensive tale.

Last April, on my bro's birthday, we had dinner at C's, a steak & seafood restaurant at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jakarta.
The bread (don't know the name, it looks like pita bread, but much much yummier) along with the dipping sauce (looks like salsa, but a lot more spicy) that they served as free appetizer while waiting was very VERY good! Yum! We asked for one more..

Now, what did we order?

Since I don't really like steak, of course I prefer seafood. I wanted to try each of the seafood without paying too much, so here goes for 500,000 rupiahs (US$ 55):

A combination of seafood (salmon, prawns, lobster, mussels) and sirloin steak.
Of course I needed help finishing it. It might look average, but in reality the plate is soooo big!

Now what did my bro order?
Here's a custom in my family. If it's your birthday, then you can choose whatever you want. And of course, most of us see this as an opportunity to choose the best food (after all, it's only once a year!). And the best translates to: very pricey, sometimes the most expensive.
So here goes the very expensive (although it doesn't really justify the price) entree that my bro chose:

It's Kobe beef, baby! Priced at 1,900,000 rupiahs (US$ 211). Sluurrrrpp :9
Again, in reality, the steak is SO big! I wonder how my bro could finish it O_O
Oh, I love the side veggies in that Kobe beef and also on my entree.

The total bill? Almost 5,000,000 rupiahs (around US$ 555).
Only once a year ^_~


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
