B. Dinner ❤

Well. Birthday post again! ╮(╯▽╰)╭

I know right, but this post is gonna be my last birthday post. It’s my birthday dinner! Apparently, Jordan found PLOY @ Work, Clearwater, Damansara Heights, through internet, & very tempted to give it a try since they have a tons of good comments!

“Ploy” means “gem” in Thai, this restaurant is all about Modern Asian cuisine. Inspired by the gems of Japanese and Thai cuisine, the interplay of the various flavours – sweet, salty, spicy, sour and umami.

The décor is all glitzy & shimmering, it’s chic, and modern.
I am loving the gem-cut PLOY at the entrance, & i fall in love with the great ambiance. (‘∀’●)♡

For drinks, there’s choice of beer, cocktails, coffee, to fresh juices & many others.

I first ordered, Magarita, & feel its a little to heavy for the dinner and so I got myself an Apple Sour, basically fresh apple juice with frozen sour plum ice cube in it, so instead of getting tasteless when the ice melts it actually get sour, very interesting, & refreshing too! i like it a lot. ♥

To start, we shared a dont-know-call-what salad.
i forgotten the name, but this is definitely one of my favorite salad.

it’s the combination of greens, almond, pineapple, generous amout of ebiko and fresh crabmeat. lovely!

Butterfish over rice.

It’s raw butterfish, jordan ordered this & i thought i will not like it because i am never a fan of raw fish. Took the courage to give it a try, & it’s surprisingly good. The butterfish is very well marinated, the natural sweetness is irresistable.

Nonetheless the presentation of it was beautiful, and most of all, every bite was exciting!❤ ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

Angelhair shrimp with cream.

The sauce and flavor is perfect.
It’s creamy yet not too jelak! just nice! ❤

PLOY’s red rubies.
water chestnut w/ shaved coconut.

dessert sucker like me like almost everything that’s sweet.
so yea, no complain.

*the-make-a-wish-moment* ❤ ❤ ❤

guess both of us are satisfied with the meal, & it’s a happy dinner!
thank you, jordan, for the great dinner. (´ ▽`).。o♡

will i be coming back again?
definitely, there’s so many other dishes on the menu that we missed out! hehe!

Next up, birthday celebration with my family.❤

my favorite birthday cake of the year.
Double chocolate royale, two tiers of belgium chocolate ice-cream coated with rich dark chocolate from Häagen-Dazs.

I am so blessed that every year mummy will take the effort to find me the best cake in town for my birthday! & needless to say, it’s delicious! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫・*:.。. .。.:*・

Then, we headed out for lunch at La-bodega.
There because they offer everything from pastas to tapas to burgers and, is always delicious!

My brother ordered the La-Bodega famous cheese burger topped up with bacons & ham.
also served with french fries & salad.

The portion is bigger that what you see here. (it feels bigger than the photo, i mean)

Dad have this Pinchos “Morunos” Con Alliolt, which is the marinated chicken on toast with garlic mayonnaise.

Champinoes Al Ajillo, button mushrooms sautéed with butter, garlic and parsley.
this is my all time favorite in La Bodega, super yums! d=(´▽`)

The sauce is optimally condensed and tasty, serve it with the fresh, crusty bread to mop up the delicious juices!

Mom’s Trucha Asalmonada en Salsa Verde, seared salmon with clams served in salsa verde.
One of our favorite too! A must order, everytime. ❤

while sister & I shared Penne Al-Pesto, with grilled vegetable and shaved parmesan.
However, sadly, it’s not to out liking. (* ̄m ̄)

My birthday lunch/dinner is always blessed with food, good food.
I truly live up the saying of we live to eat.

Well, this is a family selfie of mine. ヽ(愛´∀`愛)ノ

Some thoughts just came in to my mind as I was reading the purpose driven life.

I read that our spiritual family is more important than our physical family because it will last forever. Our family on earth is wonderful gift from God, but they are temporary & fragile, often broken by divorce, distance, growing old, and inevitably death.

It got me thinking, & i pray that i could keep all these wonderful gifts from God that i truly love, eternally. This is my #22 birthday wish. (˘ʃƪ˘)

that’s all for now.
ヾ(^_^) cheers!! ❤


  • Nice.
