Nov 3 to Nov 6

I should study Pendidikan Moral now as there is a test tomorrow, but this post tells you what I'm doing.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have 2 internal tests and 2 external exams this week. Well, I flunk Business Law test on Monday. I think I could just get less than half which is 8 and below out of 16!! 4 flat this sem seems infeasible at this stage.

The next day I had MFE (Modeling for Financial Economics) external exam in MII (Malaysia Institute of Insurance) at Damansara Heights. Yeah!! Preliminary result showed that I passed it!!! This is the first external paper I pass at first attempt. Thanks a lot to my arduous sifu (I will dedicate a post about him when I am free).

(No time for celebration as I still have another external exam two days after it)

The eruption of pimples and my deep eyebag tell you
hectic and disorder my life is.

Then it came my second external exam, FM (Financial Mathematics) today. I was really unprepared and got the ants in my pants. For the past two days, there was power failure at the test center and hence my friends all could not sit for the exam. I prayed hard for power failure since the day I was back from MFE exam to have my exam cancelled too. And God really answered my call!!! My exam was cancelled as the property manager of the test center was and is still struggling to fix the problem.God has helped me so much. So I tell myself there is no reason and no room for me to fail this exam anymore(sounds aggressive, so unlike me).

Since I haven't passed my FM exam, I can't open wine to celebrate. And so I just asked my sifu out for dinner at the complex, Jaya One which is a stone's away from my housing area. I did a little research before I came to decide to dine in at Simply Fusion. This is simply because I wanna treat my sifu a good meal or if it has slowly become my habit to check out the restaurant before I give it a try?

This restaurant originated from Rawang and it is famous for its Pepper Fore Shank. However we didn't order it. Firstly, I cannot eat spicy food. Secondly, my sifu is sick (I spread my flu to him, my bacteria is too strong or my sifu is too weak?). And so I ordered a set come with a piece of sirloin steak, a piece of cake and a glass Azuki Fritz (the name for a beverage) while my sifu ordered lamb chop and a glass of pineapple and apple combo.

Well, I'm not much into lamb and beef. So I could not give much comment. I like the sauce very much and I feel that the steak was well marinated, but the beef was a bit tough and the portion was bloodyhumongous large for me. I gave it 75/100.

The beverage was special for me. It was a mixed ice-blended of red beans (azuki), soya milk and the taste of vanilla ice-cream, with the topping of more red beans.

My sifu gave the lamb chop 80/100.

One of some random artistic attempts by my sifu

Overall, I think the food deserved the word-scrumptious. (Argh, I'm not good in describing food)

After the main course, we were served the cake we chose.

Chocolate Sensation, the name of it.
With this piece of cake, I think I need
have 500 times of rope skipping tonight!!

I like the ambiance of the restaurant too. It's not exactly grand (I cannot afford any classy restaurant of course),

but it is definitely cozy and conducive for chit-chat.

So I gave it 85/100. The waiters are polite too. Without realizing, we were chatting for the freaking two hours!! For the pricing, it is average compared to the Italian or the Mexican restaurant at the complex. My set was RM29++ while my sifu's lamb chop was about RM19 with the beverage cost around RM5++. Malaysian restaurants always like to hide the additional charges.

And it came the time for me to foot the bill, but my sifu insisted paying on his own. Argh, I think he must want me to purchase him a bottle of fine and magnificent Romanée Conti instead of just a plain meal with a glass of table wine... *grins*

Before I made my way home, I took more picture of the complex and its breath-taking night view with my lousy camera. I'm not sure if it's the problem of my camera or my skill. So bear with me for some not so decent pictures.

p/s: I will show the pictures of my sifu in the coming post. I forgot to take some human pictures again. I'm not ss (syok sendiri) perhaps?
