Daddy Dearest

It was Father's Day just 2 days ago and I think I have never NEVER actually celebrated the special occasion with my dad. He's always not around simply because he's been posted overseas all these while.

A few days ago, he sent me an email:

Eiling,

Here is another article why chocolates is good for you
Last Friday, we went to Abu Dhabi and shopped in Choithram, an Indian owned large supermarket chain in UAE. Your previous brand Tango is well stocked here; Tudor brand is also sold. So, i bought a Tudor milk chocolate with roasted hazel nuts costing AED 13.95 with 20 pcs inside (around RM 12.35). Your mum wants me to eat dark chocolate; so, i also bought Lindt Swiss Classic. I want to start really eating choc as i feel there are healthy food products, just as drinking Chinese tea, especially green tea.

Lim Baba



My Lim Baba is so cute. I gave him that name because me and my sisters always call him Ba Ba and then we just felt like adding the surname there to make him more adorable. I told him why did he ever buy those brands like Tango (I managed that brand previously) and Tudor Gold?!! Those are not real chocolate and they are certainly not good for health! Only chocolate made with cocoa butter will be good for the health and remember to check the ingredient listing. If there's no mention of cocoa butter and only contains vegetable fat, then it's a compound chocolate.

I know I'm mean criticising my previously managed brand but I'm just telling the truth. My dad has a principle that is to be loyal to the company and therefore he supports whatever products the company produces. But hello Lim Baba?!! I'm now working for Fidani, which is fine gourmet chocolates. Why are you still eating a RM12 chocolate with 20 pieces?!! You should be eating a RM4 per piece of chocolate!! I also told him to eat dark chocolate as it is better than milk chocolate because it contains more cocoa and less sugar and milk. Most of the time the milk they use is not really milk, it's whey powder so no point promoting milk chocolate is good!

I miss you Lim Baba. Faster come back k? I want a new phone. (he'll be back on July 4th)

Although I did not manage to celebrate Father's Day with Lim Baba, I did celebrate Father's Day with my boyfriend's father. We went to a restaurant in SS2, the Chow Yang area where the shop is in the same row as Original Kayu Nasi Kandar.


Don't ask me why it's called Shanky cos I really have no idea at all. But lucky it's called shanky and not shaky.


Their Signature Tauhu (Beancurd). Not too bad. It's fried to a crispy texture outside and inside it's their own homemade beancurd.


This is the Guinness Stout Pork Ribs. Don't worry, you won't get drunk eating them.


We ordered a steamed cod fish. The cod fish wasn't very fresh because the meat isn't tender and smooth enough for my liking. Wasted.


Spinach in superior stock. It's nice but wasn't what I expected it to be because I expect the spinach to be submerged into a bowl of soup with anchovies and century egg style!


Overall, the dinner was quite satisfying and the price is still reasonable at RM80 for 4 person. I didn't see why we should splurge in fancy restaurants on Father's Day because it's a total waste of money as everyone tries to sell their set meals and not to mention the full bookings. A simple dinner like this is also okay mah hor... I paid for the dinner. See, this future daughter in law (FDIL) so nice hor?!! Where to find?!!


[Disclaimer: This is strictly my honest opinion and tastes vary with tastebuds. Please do not even waste your time trying to sue me because just like my sister, we ain't rich! Thnx]
