Wow! Has it been a long and busy day!
25th Dec, the day that Jesus was born, the 1st day of Christmas, the first day of presents and the first day of food!
In the morning we went to our Christmas service at 9:30 a.m
So as the service ends with some more carols, everybody is either making a rush out of the service to receive a 2009 calendar/ planner, rushing out before the jam congestion at the parking lot or like me and my friends, hang around and chat and ultimately exchange presents!
yea.. it was fun… haha! I will post the present I got on another post. This post is going to be long enuf!
After the service, my parents dropped my bro and I at One U to do some more Christmas present shopping.. I didn’t drive because…. IT WAS SO FREAKIN JAM!!!!
Well there are just so much stuff going on in One Utama!
I went there earlier as well to collect tickets for the movie, Australia, for the evening. Haha.. I really do NOT feel sorry for these suckers who have to line up!
So after a rest at home we headed back to One U for the movie at 5:30 p.m. GOOD THING, that most of the crowd has left the mall and we managed to find a parking straight away!
Australia was a Freakin’ Good movie! I hardly rated a good movie this year and I hardly ever give higher than a 7 in a rating out of 10. but Australia scored 9 out of 10 in my books! Brilliant movie! It was a 3 hour long movie and it is also an oscar winning movie for sure.
The movie is basically set post Second World War in Australia where a british aristocrat inherited a cattle ranch in Australia and face a hard life while at her time there and she also found love!
It is a brilliant movie, I suggest you go watch it with your mates, partners, family, it is great!
After the movie we were feeling hungry, while deciding on where to feast, I was watching a live Jazz performance by Jazza Nova and they played really good renditions of Christmas Carols such as Silent Night, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and other old classic numbers of Christmas.
I must say they were fantastic… They could be better with me on the Electric guitar hehe. Jazz and Blues is my forte!
The first thing I noticed about the restaurant, was that the seats of the restaurant was a typical American Diner Style, with the plush seats and the C Shaped seats. Very American feel. Brought back some old memories when I was staying in New York as a kid.
Classic C shaped chairs that you see in Diners and also in movies like 10 things I Hate About You, The OC, 90210, in typical teen movies where you can see them. Another thing that made it very American was that there were Chilli and Tomato sauce tubes on the table. Really American, they are just missing the Pepper & Salt shakers.
Mum wasn’t so hungry so she decided to get a soup and share dad’s food.
Man! The food was DELICIOUS! It really did bring me back to memory lane as I reminisce on the real authentic American food. It is definitely worth going and you guys will see me there quite often from now on haha.. Though there is a bad thing about New York Deli..
The food service was so slow! We waited about 20 mins for our food! My dad had to complain a few times as it was 9 p.m after dinner hours and there were only a few tables still eating and the food took 30 mins to arrive! That was quite bad.. Good thing that the food tasted great.. that was their saving grace!
Well it is a busy Christmas for my family today. Not the usual stuff that we normally do during this time of the year. But all in all it was a fun Christmas.
Let me leave you drooling over the pictures of the Menu of New York New York Deli. 😀
