Candle Light Dinner

We went for Japanese buffet at Kampachi, Equatorial Bangi. It was a romantic candle light dinner. By "we", I mean hubby and I AND the two noisy monsters. hehehe The hotel participated in Earth Hour and switched off the main lights. There were some dim lights and candles. But we didn't get to enjoy the so-called romantic atmosphere as we're busy getting food for the kids, getting food for ourselves, helping didi feed himself or bringing didi to the washroom for big business (whenever we dine out, he LOVES to poo right after he's eaten, even though he's done his business at home. A really weird habit). Anyway, how to be romantic with two bright "spotlights" on the table? :D

And we're terrible earthlings. I totally forgot about Earth Hour when we left the house. So I didn't instruct Kakak to switch off the lights. Anyway, I don't think it's a good idea to leave her alone in the house with candles. I'm sure she'd freak out. Never mind, I'll try to do my part another day.

Back to the dinner, I think the kids enjoyed it the most. As we're not a big fan of raw food, the rest of the food are just normal. XY ate some fried rice, then started enjoying the desserts (wafer rolls, marshmallows, muar chee, fruits and ice cream). Didi ate more 'proper' food (fried rice, vegetables and noodles) before he attacked the desserts. He doesn't really like cold stuff. When he takes cold stuff, he'd tell me it's very cold. He'll leave them for later or eat just a teeny weeny bit at a time. I think he prefers melted ice cream.

Kids like to check out washroom one whenever they go out regardless there are clean or dirty one..not only CE only...wondering why...

Anywhere it is special to have something different, glad that everyone enjoy it...CE is same to Terry, he don't know how to eat ice-cream, even a melt one also not so keen..same, he also no fancy of cold stuff.

Hi Slavemom, wow! Bangi has an Equatorial hotel now? By the beach I supposed?
I used to go to Bangi fairly often those days, lots of rubber estates and hardly many homes.
Guess times have changed.

My last trip back to KL, I couldn't even recognize Ampang road or Bukit Bintang, ha ha.
You have a great weekend, stay young, Lee.

Uncle Lee said...

Slavemom, you have great looking kids. Can see where they get their attractive looks from, *wink*, Lee.

Good wor the hotel. I totally forgot about Earth Day too and we were outside dining with friends.

Next time leave the kids with someone at home so you and Hubby can "pak toh" lor..hehe. For me, I don't have the chance coz Gwen only stick to me.

Alice Law said...

Oh well..treat it as one happy family outing together.

I totally forgot about Earth Day too this year. Yup, don't ask kakak to switch off the lights. Paik Ling is right, LOL!!

Adrine said...

he hehh... funny that he likes to poo after a meal outside!

Rose Belle said...

Haha! I laugh out loud even though I'm in the same boat as you :) Yeah, dining out with kids is barely a relaxing and enjoyable thing. I have to admit, though, that my kids are well behaved. But of course, there's others too, like the bathroom trips and making sure they're eating their food, etc. Sometimes I see how dreadful other kids are in restaurants and I'm soooo thankful for my obedient ones.

Unc Lee, EQ Bangi is not by the beach. The hotel's quite old actually, has been there more than 10 yrs edi.

Alice, the Japanese buffet is RM72++ for adults and RM36++ for children btw 4-12 yo.

2ma said...

it has been a long time since i went kampachi. i love thier buffet, except the crowd, esp for the one in KL. i always feel its a waste of money to bring kids for buffet. they eat so little, and you have to pay 50% of the adults price!!!

andrewjune said...

didn't know KL has a kampachi as well! wow wow wow...
i love jap food esp those raw ones! hahaha...

so romantic dinner...:)

wenn said...
