Two dinners

Emo-ish lately, and I haven't touched MapleSEA in a really long time. Oh well.

For the first dinner, it was with Aunty Joanne and Uncle Danny at the Seri Petaling branch Maiu Japanese Restaurant. I think you guys remember my first encounter with Maiu at Damansara Perdana. The difference in between the two branches are basically the layout and design.

The Damansara Perdana branch has a very traditional (albeit dark) Japanese atmosphere, with traditional-style Japanese furniture. However, the Seri Petaling branch is very well lit, with an orchid-printed wall on the right and a bright green wall that separates the dining area from the kitchen. There's also a small sushi bar at the back corner.

The ordering method, however, is the same for both - you're given a menu with five slots to place the quantity of your order. For an average price of RM40 per person, the choice range is quite wide, and the dishes are fresh and tasty, as compared to some other restaurants which charge up to RM80 per person, and though these have even wider ranges of choice, but half their selections are of local food.

Outfit of the evening was my red off-shoulder top, black leggings, multi-chain dark chrome necklace and gladiators. I noticed later in the night that this was way too much - the red was getting a lot of attention already, not to mention the make-up.

Make-up of the day - dark smokey punk with just a hint of color. I actually did this look last minute, because BF said he preferred sexy make-up. Fragrance of the day was Lancome Tresor. Here's what I used:

  • shu uemura Creme Eyeshadow in Beige
  • #46, light shimmery red (applied on inner corners)
  • #47, shimmery red (applied on outer 2/3 of eyelid)
  • #7, dark shimmery grey (applied on outer-V, contouring above crease blending outwards toward end of brow, and some on outer lower lashline)
  • Artistry eye shadow in Ash Black (applied along upper lashline using angled brush)
  • Artistry eye shadow in Chocolate and Ash Black (applied with angled brush, layered on outer half of brows)
  • Sabrina's Secret Eye Pencil in Gold (applied thinly along lower lashline and waterline)
  • Artistry eye shadow in Sand (applied as highlight under arch of brows)
  • MaxFactor False Lash Effect mascara in Black (applied on upper lashes after curling)
  • TheBodyShop Oil-Free Balancing Foundation in 05 (applied using wet sponge on eye circles)
  • Maybelline Clear Smooth Aqua Gel Foundation in 12 Natural (applied rest of face, layering on blemishes)
  • Pigeon Compact Baby Powder in Beige (applied over foundation in patting motions)
  • Dior Addict red lipstick
I admit the lip color is a bit too strong for the eye make-up, but I blotted most of the lipstick off before I went out.
Potato salad.
Deep fried soft shell crab - soft shell crab age.
Chawan mushi.
Highlight of the day. The seemingly ordinary but ...
... it's bread-crumb coated fried tofu with a small oyster at the center.
Food recommendations were a must since I was the one who introduced the restaurant - of course, only of those that I have tried before. The dishing method for some of the food such as the cha soba and the special mushroom soup were different. We tried a couple of different new items this time, such as the fried tofu and the potato salad.

All in all the meal was satisfying, though I regret ordering another wasabi ice cream, knowing full well what it would do to me.

Curry chicken, fried rice, fried beehoon, spicy fried beehoon, fried chicken, chicken fish nuggets, sambal sotong, mixed veggies and lemongrass chicken served with soy milk.

The other dinner would be on the next day, for my mum's cousin's son's daughter's full moon celebration. Dinner was the basic Chinese-style catering - fried rice, fried beehoon, spicy fried beehoon, fried chicken, curry chicken with potatoes, deep-fried spring rolls, etc. The selection, however, was pretty limited - there was only 2 types of pastries and only one type of beverage.
