bookmark_borderDinner At Reunion, Bangsar Village 2

It was 9 years ago when we all first met,
It was when a new chapter of life begun,
It was when everybody met new faces,
And new friendships were formed.


And throughout 1.5 years after we all first met,
We went through various obstacles,
Funny moments were shared,
Bitter moments were shed,
A different understanding were formed,
The good, the bad and what’s not were all laid out.


At the end of the 1.5 years after we all first met,
It was the time when we all bid farewell to each other,
It was the time when we all went separate ways,
Only the good moments we cherished,
Left the bitter ones behind.

Some took the same course,
While the rest pursued their own interest,
Nevertheless, we all knew what each of were up to,
Or at least a few of us knew.

Now, after 9 years have passed when we all first met,
All begin to build their own career,
Working what they like,
Or at least some are.

Half of them are still here in the country,
While the rest are all over the world stamping their mark,
Looking for better opportunity, better life.

But at the end of it all,
Whenever we can,
Regardless how busy schedule of each individual is,
We never fail to meet up with each other,
To catch up and update each other.

9 years down the road,
We all met again,
Though the attendance could have been better,
Well, it’s better than no meet up at all.

The highlight of the day was the meet up,
Happy faces and smiles were everywhere,
Jokes were thrown around just like the ol’ times,
Well… more matured than ol’ times.

Not that the food wasn’t good,
Nor was I not interested to take any food photos,
But if you need to know,
The food was as good as the meet up.

On one freaking hot Saturday afternoon, while I was taking my precious nap, came a SMS…

Got dinner later?
Let’s meet up later. I’m heading to church first.

After a couple of SMS exchanges, off we (a friend and I) went for dinner at a restaurant in Taman Sri Manja during the night. I read about this restaurant from another blog and it mentioned about pork dishes at affordable price.

Nambawan Restaurant & Cafe

It wasn’t hard to find this place as it is located along new shoplots in the said area. This restaurant was directly opposite of 7-Eleven. There weren’t much people when we entered the restaurant but the crowd started to build up after about 15 mins later.

Nambawan Environment

We were deciding where to sit but after much doubts, we sat inside which we thought there will be air-con. But somehow, we were pretty disappointed because even though there were air-cons, we felt the stuffy-ness and the heat. We should have sat outside since it rained earlier. The settings were pretty simple and I reckoned this restaurant is a family-own business.

In the menu, one could see that they are offering Asian and Western delights.  Fried Pattaya rice, beef sirloins to lamb chop, you name it they got it. But our mission on that day was to try out their pork selections. As usual, we picked our ala carte in no time as we were hungry.

Crumbs Pork Chop

The Crumb Pork Chop tasted quite alright. It was deep-fried bread crumbs-coated pork chops with their sauce. The meat wasn’t chewy and there as slight hint of salty-ness. On the sides were salads and shoestring fries.

Roasted Pork Belly

My Pork Belly dish was pretty good. They sliced the meat not too thin yet not overly thick. The skin was crunchy yet not too salty and the meat was succulent. Underneath was the baked / fried potatoes (not mashed).

Roasted Pork Ribs

Judging at the portion served, we decided to order another portion to be shared amongst us. One of the staffs (the lady boss, I think) recommended Roasted Pork Ribs.. We both agreed unanimously and without second thought, we went ahead with the recommendation. The meat was tender but not to the point of literally failing off from the bones. They marinated well / long enough in order for the meat to be fully absorbed the sauce.

Mango Smoothie

To wash them down, we picked Mango Smoothies. We were surprised by the size of the cup. Not sweet yet a faint hint of mango taste in it, it was good but not great.

All in all, it was slightly above-average meal. The price was pretty affordable for such place. The environment can be improved and the service was slow. Probably and pausibly, they were lack of staffs when we were there.
