I can't believe I have gone for Christmas shopping this year. I was so busy with VBA and Christmas Musical that I thought I would not have time for shopping.
Two days ago, on Friday, my parents, my sister and I went to Mid Valley. Usually we'll start our journey at 8.30am so that we can arrive before 10am to choose our parking lot. This time, we didn't want to rush, so went only at 12pm. When we reached Mid Valley, all except one of the parking lots signboards indicated that the zone was full. We went straight for the zone that was not full and had to park at Level 4. Those of you who have been to Mid Valley will know that there are only 2 levels of parking lots. We parked at the Gardens. They have more car park levels there and level 4 is usually for the people who have season passes only. We were allowed to park there because the first 3 levels were full and they had no choice but to open up Level 4.
I met Minch for lunch at the San Francisco Steakhouse. Earlier on she emailed a few of us on the promotion of this food outlet. It was only RM16.90++ for a set meal. I had lamb shoulder with corn and mashed potatoes and she had chicken with broccoli and mashed potatoes. The food was so-so only. The lamb meat was a little bit tough. Good thing the portion was small because after a while my jaws were hurting from chewing too much.
The decos at Mid Valley. Looked like a circus. I think they re-used some of the previous year's decos. This year's deco is not impressive at all.
The Garden's decos are much nicer. Maybe because I've never seen birdcages as big, and people using them as decos.
All in all, it was a fruitful time. I managed to have a decent meal with Min Chee, bought a few Christmas presents and exercised. Yes, I exercised. I walked for almost 7 hours. :)
