Upon an invitation by Mr Lawrence from Pizza Hut, I was fortunate to dine in one of his favourite japanese dining house, called Hanabi. Situated at the heart of KL, right opposite Beach Club (where transvestites swarm a many!) it cannot be missed with its eloquent Japanese exterior design. As you enter you could feel a sense of class in it, albeit the absence of many customers once upon a time, Mr Lawrence did mention. However, the reason for his loyal visits became quite clear cut as I feasted upon their limited menu.
Lawrence brought his niece who was born and raised in Amsterdam. She doesn’t really eat raw stuff, which I thought was funny, since I thought everybody from Amsterdam are pretty much the most sporting people ever lol! So she had this Salmon Steak Set.
Mr Lawrence had something else that looked like Ikan Bakar to me lol. Can’t for the life of me remember what fish is that, but…
It sure looked yummy , marinated and grilled to perfection!
So, presenting in all glory, their biggest lunch set which costed a mere RM50! I tell you, for that kind of price I expected something smaller or less than how it is in the menu, but boy was I surprised!
The Hanabi set came with salad, fruits, Cawanmushi, prawn tempura, unagi and a luxurious set of assorted sushi.
I think it was never a fair fight when the way it was presented to you takes precedence over its flavour. It’s almost a given!
At every angle, at every point, it looked so beautiful that I did not even dare to touch my food until Lawrence vehemently gave a barely audible cough to signify the start of our meal. Lol. Floggers, they never change their spots.
I never gave up though. I left these two as a final blow of orgasmical levels to the end. I don’t think I need to explain why, especially when it involves Salmon Belly and Tuna Belly (Toro).
Needless to say they were pretty amused at my antiques. With that Lawrence and his beautiful Dutch Lady proceed to wolf down their meals while I entertain them with a series of what-I-do’s and where-you-come-in’s. Interestingly Lawrence revealed he had a three-year plan before his retirement that he wanted me to be involved in. How could I refuse such an offer? Even as I write this entry, short term, mid term and long term projects have been carefully listed in my books, some being executed as we speak, some still in dilly dally mode and some even made it to production stage… and you’ll soon find out soon what it is, because it involves social networks and fun, fun and more FUN!
It’s been a great half a year since I was shaken, not stirred deep down within me. But with the revelation of more and more interesting opportunities and the blessings to know certain entreprenuering mindsets such as Mr Cerventus, Mr Zain and Mr Firdaus, along with many others, I can truly say there are more things to come.
So in the mean time, do stay tuned 😉
