This morning, I headed to KPMG Towers to have my regular long meeting with my Japanese client Hideyuki Yamamoto who had just returned back from Tokyo last night. We always had to spend 1-2 hours discussing and updating all relevant jobs that are still running in progress. Actually the meeting could easily wrap up in mere 15 minutes if not for the English communication breakdown and nonsensical men talks. My client thinks I am a clown sometimes to crack him up so much.
Yamamoto-San is a young bachelor in his early 30s who hails from Kanagawa, somewhere just outside Tokyo. He is very thin with milky white skin plus Naruto looks and carries extremely polite manners of a typical Japanese with many courtesy bows at me on the left & right, front & back! So I just followed whatever he does lah. So cute to see me bow 5 times and hait hait hait hait.... Kekekekekeke
He told me that he loves Kuala Lumpur so much for its abundance of streetscape greenery environment & relaxed lifestyle. He really wishes to be based here forever instead of Tokyo City that never sleeps. The lifestyle there is way, too competitive in fast lanes and we all know that too. I will never want to overwork in their offices and die at my work table. When I was in Tokyo last 2 winters ago, I often saw many office buildings still had working lights on till wee hours, as we were heading back to our hotel in Akasaka area. Do you know that Tokyo has been ranked the biggest city in the world since many years ago? New York City is always ranked Number 2.
He excitedly reminded me that there will be a very long holiday break this month. He has booked himself a trip to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh for 4 days of fun and sightseeing all alone by himself. Suddenly, I became worried for him as he had not booked any hotels or engage a tour guide to show him around Angkor Wat. So I spent the next 1 hour to share my own experience in touring all the ancient ruins around Angkor Wat. He thought that he could easily hail street taxis and hop onto public buses everywhere like KL. After hearing my horror stories, his eyes went wide with pale face and started perspiring cold sweats. Hihihihi... I assured him that the swaying nightlife along the boulevards lining the rows of pubs and cafes would keep him drunk & happy every night. Finally, I made his adrenaline raced with excitement now.
The meeting ended and time for me to find the chicken. I bowed and bowed my way to his office's door. I bade him Sayonara to adjourn for my lunch. Yes, I have long wanted to try this curry chicken rice at the old wing of the connected shopping mall.
I have a blogger friend who has boasted that he has been eating this curry chicken rice at least 4 times a week for many-many months now. I think he has grown chicken feathers by now for his serious incurable addiction for their curry chicken.
Oh well, I have finally eaten this curry chicken now. I could understand my friend's serious addiction better as I could taste its flavourful thick gravy with sufficient aromatic spices. They were 2 chunks of lean meat with 3 potatoes to please me. I upgraded my set meal with a big glass of Iced Lemon Tea that costs extra 99 sen. The total bill was RM11.60 and I will be back again soon.
