That Little Wine Bar

...costs us almost RM180 in total. And there's no wine involved too. But, it's expected since you have to pay for the ambiance too and without a doubt, it's very relaxing and soothing to be there.

What exactly did we do that we have to pay that much of money? Well, just eat. Haha. So, this was what we had.

Introducing the main courses from clockwise, top left...
Duck Breast a l'orange
Mushroom Quiche, my favourite of all the courses...
Red Snapper, what I ordered
The Chicken Panini

For desserts, we have...

New York Cheesecake
Warm Apple Filo Pillow

Overall, the foods are quite nice, though the Red Snapper is on the bottom among the four. That fish dish is not really good and apparently not fresh too, according to the 'critics'. I really liked the mushroom quiche the most. Its cheesy flavor mixed well with the pastry and the mushroom complemented it well.

For the desserts, nothing to shout about though I quite like the New York Cheesecake. Maybe it's because I really do like New York Cheesecake. Must go New York to try it first. Haha.

The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing. It's definitely very Westernized.

The wine collection...
Few Snapshots of the restaurant...

Owned by a European couple (assumed), they were friendly and nice to talk to. Definitely a place worth revisiting, when I had the money.

Study Study Study

With the end of the semester comes the dreadful study week, where we were supposed to study but mostly ended up having fun, and the horrible exam weeks, where we will be sitting in a cold room for 2/3 hours each round just to prove that we did not study anything at all during the whole semester. It's the cycle of life, at the university life.

Now that I had FINALLY finalized that extremely stupid first report, it's time to focus on the studies. I'm gonna jam my one study week with the whole core courses that I took, making sure that what I'm supposed to know for the semester, I will know it by the end of the week.

I'm rambling.

This is how I feel right now...

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

We studied this poem back when we were Form Four, if I remembered correctly. It's about the personal choices that we made in our lives and whether we will end up in regret of the decisions we made.

Choices and decisions. It's a very scary thing, knowing that different choices you made today will have different impacts in your life and if you made the wrong choice, then, you have no choice but to stay on board until you reach another stage of your life where you can make another decision.

I'm actually quite scared of my future. All I see in front of me is nothing but complete blur, a rather bleak vision. I have plans but I'm not too sure of which paths to choose and also how my plans will be released into reality instead of being just that, plans.

Is this the feeling of being in the final year of study???
