Mission Accomplished 95%

Why 95% you may ask...

Well, out of the 7 things that I've listed in yesterday's post, I only managed to carry out 6.5...I didn't get to meet up with the Ngs as they were back in Ipoh :( *sigh*

Before I start to story-tell, here's a review of yesterday's dinner:

Sunday Dinner
The family had dinner at Hai Tian Seafood Restaurant near Vistana Hotel, Jalan Teluk Sisek, Kuantan. This restaurant is quite big & can be seen from the main road. Usually, the restaurant will be quite packed, so we thought we would give this place a try! It's our first time there & we weren't disappointed :)

We were introduced to one of their specialties, which was the Claypot Red Talapia. It's just like steam fish, but this is certainly something different :) There's a bit of gravy, like some broth, & the fish doesn't have that smelly mud smell at all!! Yums!

Claypot Red Talapia

Stir-fried "lai pak" with "kei zhi"

Sweet & Sour Chicken

Stir-fried "Choy Tam"

The beancurd was really nice! This is a must try... it's very smooth & firm! It's not the "hard" & "rough" kinda firm....me likey!!

House-special Beancurd with Dark Sauce & Dried Shrimp

Beancurd with Mixed Veggie

Overall, I feel that it's a trip really worth making though I don't feel too good at present; I'm down with a very bad cold & I've been sneezing every 15minutes & consuming "trees" of tissue paper! One side of the nose is blocked while the other is leaking....*sigh* Totally annoying.

The bad
1. It took me 4.5 hours to get back from Kuantan to KL on the bus when usually it'll take me around 3.5 hours only -- thanks to the traffic jam even in Kuantan itself!!2. I only had 2 pieces of tissue paper throughout my 4.5 hours bus ride back & the bus was freezing :(
3. It took me another 1 hour to get home from the bus terminal in KL thanks to the jam on Federal Highway... my dad & I decided to take a longer, but jam-less route back... it still took us eternity to get home
4. By the time I got home, it was 9+pm...late dinner....Olympics closing ceremony was about to end...I gotta head back to Cyberjaya (did that only around 11.20pm)

The good
1. Accomplished 6.5/7 of the things that I wanted to do in Kuantan... seriously, the little time I had to spend on the many people was really lovely :)
2. Got my much needed hair cut :)
3. Spent time at the beach!!! (golly, I love beaches!!)
4. Had a lovely steamboat dinner upon arriving at home yesterday... ah, yummy...

The good need not be more than the bad in quantity. Really. All I need is just the quality of the goodness & that covers whatever bad stuff that I had to face/am currently facing :)

I really miss Kuantan (again). The phrase that UF said still rings in my mind "Ah...how nice it is to have the family back." I look forward to my next trip there :)
