Restoran Sun Yen 新园茶餐室@ Section 17

People refer Restoran Sun Yen 新园茶餐室 as "the shop that serves game meat 野味 at Section 17", i.e. wildboar, deer, etc. AS there's a stall does serve such dishes.

It's been awhile since we came here for lunch, because we don't really fancy game meat 野味. However, we were there last week, because we really ran out of ideas where to have lunch. LOL~ There are other stalls too.

Our food

Hokkian Style Fried Kuay Teow (using Charcoal flame)

Believe it or not. Food that is cooked on charcoal/wood fire taste better. This dish is awesome! Perhaps like the Chinese old believes, cooked food must be blessed by good flame.

Curry Noodle

This curry noodle is quite happening. However, I ordered, as I'm more a dry meehoon:
Dry Mee Hoon with Curry Gravy

Kopi Ping (Ice Coffee)

I don't drink coffee, therefore, I can't comment much about this drink. However, I was told, the Kopi Ping is one of the famous drink here.

Besides the mentioned, there's a famous Bah Kut Teh stall at Restoran Sun Yen 新园茶餐室 too. I'll blog about that next time.

Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant 日本海

Sammie suggested this place to me a few weeks back, and since dylan was in town, we went to check out last nite. It was last minute, therefore didn't manage to ask everyone. Gomen nasai (I blame dylan).

Anyway, the place has a normal Japanese Restaurant set up, nothing fancy (who cares?), however the food is GREAT!

Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant 日本海

Very kind of enjee, she managed to call up and get a room for us ('cos she very free nowadays! >_<).

The Gang

Our order (6 of us...)

My ultimate Katsu Kari Raisu

Besides the Katsu Chicken, there were stewed beef in the Kari too. Nice and tender.

My thoughts

NICE. REASONABLE. Authentic. Go check it out~lah!

I took 1 of their business card before I left, and I discovered this:

can it be...? LOL~

How to get there...
If you are coming from Mid-Valley/PJ direction towards Old Klang Road, once you have entered Old Klang Road, keep LEFT. Then try to look out for small road/junction between Michelin Tyre Shop (a row of shop houses) and Shell Petrol Station. Turn in and you can see Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant 日本海.

Or you can refer to this map.

Adidas King of Road 2007 - I DID 10KM!!!

I DID IT AGAIN!!! My record for this run is 1Hr48Mins for 10KM. I'm sure I can do better next time, if I train hard enough~lah.

Anyway, I was there not to run... but to take pictures. LOL~

and here's the story.

- - - - - - -

I got up at 0445hrs, reached Rodney's place by 0545hrs. Then Jack came. About 0615hrs, WaiOnn's came with his usual just woke up winding mood (LOL~ chill, buddy!). We all hoped on to his car and headed to Sunway.

Finally reached Sunway around 0630hrs, we were told roads were closed, so we parked at the residential area and walked. Got our offical jersey from Mel (and thanks for looking after for everyone's bags).

T Minus 5mins, before the race...

The 21KM race started at 0645hrs, we went in after that. There were so many people there, and yet I manage to bump into zorocaster. What a conincident. LOL~

At 0700hrs, the 10KM race horn goes off, and here we go...

at 1KM

Due to lack of training, after 10mins, my engine died off... LOL~ and I proceed with my primary objective - i.e. document down this journey.

at 2KM

After about 30 mins the race started (for 10KM), people were shouting and cheering, 2 African runners were returning. THIS IS MADNESS!!! LOL~ They are real running machines! GO!GO!GO!

at 3KM

It's sunrise, it was so beautiful, I stopped and snap it. Then I spotted zorocaster returning... WTH?!?!? THIS IS ANOTHER MADNESS!!! LOL~ Well done, zoro!

at 5KM

One uncle, out of no where, got on to the track and running with the rest of the participants. He was carrying 2 huge bags summore. REAL CHAMPION... LOL~

at 6KM

at 8KM

at 9KM

There was an incident right before 9KM ended. I'm not sure what's going on exactly. A car stopped by, one huge Indian man stepped out the car, started talking to a young police officer, while the driver remained inside. The next thing, the officer stepped back, unbuttoned his holster, ask the fella to stay put with a warning. The guy didn't listen and looked a bit hostile, immediately, the officer radioed out "Bantuan! Bantuan!" (Assistance! Assistance!).

Two officers came over from the other lane. The young officer was shouting "Tangkap dia! Tangkap dia!" (Arrest him! Arrest him!). The big Indian guy went back inside the car, and they went off.

What a drama! phew~

at 10KM

Finish line

After crossing the finish line, everyone went to que up for drinks - Milo Ais & 100Plus. The crowds were quite discipline and polite, til some noobs, cut ques. Some even worse, walked straight right to the counter, ignored everyone, grabbed and walked off. SHAME ON YOU, UNCLES!!! Yes, there were a few rude senior participants.

I didn't complete the race within 50mins, i.e the qualifying time, therefore no medal for me. But it's ok, it was a well organised event, me and my friends had fun!

GOOD JOB, organisers! Thank YOU, GOD for providing a nice weather for us. Thank you, Mo for collecting the jerseys for everyone. Thank you, WaiOnn for the ride. Thank you, Mel for looking after everyone's bags. Thank you, everyone for this fun+good run!

OH! I nearly forgot, there were some rewards/harvest for me after all:
01) a good+nice adidas runny jersey - cost RM59.90 (got it for RM15, comes with the registrations);
02) a good old traditional thai foot massage;
