#69: yesterday

yesterday, 18/11/17, my brother’s birthday. the exact day. we had dinner in Putien, Subang Courtyard SS15 again. mom booked a table for 6; my parents, us, my brother & his soon-to-be-wife. i was the first to arrived and lucky enough to get parking outside, in front of Texas Chicken. i came out early because i went to collect my new specs (sponsored by mom because i got no money to change new specs). then there was a slight flood and jam on my way out.

then came my parents after that.. i waited for them outside the restaurant. my brother came later after that. dinner is 6pm and i’ve told him in advance. guess what? all 5 of us waited for him. i even reserved some food on his plate and bowls. and guess what? he only came when we finished dinner and about to leave. when he came, he din even wish my brother happy birthday.

luckily mom gave me extra cash, otherwise i can’t even give my brother his birthday angpow. when i ask him for petrol money and angpow money is like i’m begging for money. i got 100 from him and he was like really don’t want give. hello.. if i have more cash in hand, i won’t ask. and… since 2006 i’ve never receive any proper allowance that a husband should be giving..

he said i no go find work. how he know? i have applying and getting rejected. the day before, friday. i met up with this guy about a job. i’m just waiting for the date to start. there are people out there who knows how i’m struggling with bills, and looking for jobs. and my stress affected my hands’ pain. he doesn’t see it from another perspective.

what about him? he spent his trip on things that i would considered unnecessary and rather expensive (anything is expensive when money is not enough). basically he doesn’t bother anything else. he didn’t ask how much i give for angpow. i don’t think he realized i change my specs. i langsung tak tau how much is the bill yesterday since i’m not the one paying. before leaving, i went to boost and a smoothie home. the next round can redeem 1 free.

most of my spending is on bills, maintenance fee, petrol and food. i only go shopping for clothes, shoes, and other necessities when i really need and when there’s promotion. my birthday is coming next month. i will definitely spend on myself. his words hurt too much. i was flooding at home.

#68: don’t know what happen…

it seems like the last time we whatsapp was weeks ago.. wanted to update her on my hands condition.. but the minute i start typing the words… i felt a voice telling me “NO”. then i stopped immediately… erased whatever i started… closed the app… i don’t know why.. suddenly i don’t feel like telling her anything… it’s something like… as though we are strangers.. never met before.. never get to know each other.. there’s no “missing” feel.. it’s just not there.. the feeling is a bit like… i’m having lesser friends.. like friends never increased..

#66: Pho Mi Cafe

Yesterday I had dinner with my parents at a newly opened Vietnamese restaurant, nearby their house. This is the second time my mom and I have Vietnamese food.

PHO MI CAFE (002673928-D) opens from 1030 till 2200 everyday. It is located at 11A, JALAN USJ 10/1D, TAIPAN BUSINESS CENTRE, 47620 SUBANG JAYA, SELANGOR (same row as PappaRich). You may call them at 03-8081 5252 or email them at phomicafe@gmail.com for information.

We ordered 9 items and I have only 6 pictures here. 😀 Not in any specific order.

Rollover the picture for the price. For a bigger picture, click on the picture itself.

The missing pictures are XA GUNG (HOT LEMONGRASS TEA) RM 6.50 and NUOC AM (WARM WATER) RM 0.50. Mom had the warm water and dad had the tea.

The price isn’t that expensive as compared to the one we had that day. We liked the Beef Steak because it’s yummy on its own, even eating just like that without the baguette. As for the Pho, we the beef is not as nice as the one my mom and I had that day. As for my Vietnamese drip coffee…. yesterday was the first time I see a glass of tea served with the coffee. According to the waitress, the tea is for you to drink after the coffee. The tea is kinda aromatic. It’s funny because i have never heard anyone drinking tea after coffee. I have been to Vietnamese restaurants but never once served like that.

I suggest you give this place a try. Just for your information, this place is kinda small and it’s very pack during peak hours.

Bye…
