The gang was in Mid Valley today for a lunch and movie date. We settled for Italiannies (The Gardens) because we had such a great meal the last time in 1U.
We had the Calamari Salad, Salmon Fettucine and a Classic Pizza.
I was so busy snapping pictures of my Hot Chocolate and the bread that I'd totally forgotten about the entrées. But to think of it, it was all caused by the fact that Italiannies charges RM2 for a glass of water! I mean, if I had gotten my water, I wouldn't be snapping pictures of it. But I got the Hot Chocolate with a very pretty layer of whipped cream decorated with chocolate syrup on top.
The meal wasn't THAT satisfying this time around. I would've enjoyed the salad a little more if my eagle eyes (Oh, love the irony; seeing as I'm blind as a bat) hadn't caught sight of granules of what I think could be food seasoning.
All the while I was snapping away, I kept bugging Vel to move unwanted items out of my frame; like her glass, plate, elbow and her entire body. But of course, the following photo wasn't fixed.
This one is though. I gave him ample time to pose.
The only entrée I managed to snap (after being reminded by Vel) is this. Classic Pizza. Didn't taste very good and quite frankly, so not worth it. Now we know not to order this lah. The pastry is even thinner than Jusco Selection's Frozen Pizza and topped with minced meat, pizza sauce, scarce amounts of assorted toppings and a thin layer of cheese SOMEWHERE. Simply, it looked like they slapped a layer of minced meat with tomato sauce on the pastry :)
We talked about a bunch of stuff; from most things Manchester to blogs.
Guo Zhang said he wouldn't really want to read something longer than 3 paragraphs so he scans through the text for anything interesting. Boobies. So naturally, I was concerned. I do have entries that are long and winding and to top it off, some or most of them don't have pictures.
Well, most of the time, I try to make the read as enjoyable as possible with the occasional rants and emo posts. I try to insert pictures in posts that are 100% text but if I can't find anything relevant in the stash, I try to draw it. Butt crack. This explains the one, two ugly stickmen drawing you've seen this month. I'm not so keen on using clip-arts or pictures that aren't mine (I used to but I'm more reluctant now) because I think it loses the "touch".
I colourize certain text in 100%-text posts because I thought the lack of pictures might've been boring and the text might've blinded you with its big shiny words. Ass cheek. Then I asked him if me doing that helped with his reading at all and he said that it was so Lala... or was it something to the meaning of bimbotic? I forget.
I totally agree with Zhang. It is somewhat bimbotic and long paragraphs can turn someone off.
I'll try to cut down on rainbow colours okay *chuckle chuckle*
Hockey puck, rattlesnake, monkey monkey underpants. More pictures for you guys (if I can help it)! But it'll take a few extra seconds to load lor.
Also, Zhang will be leaving for UTM (Johor) on the 28th of June... Goo-bye Mr. Zhang. I will miss you. Don't get robbed.
