My Rockstar Father's Birthday at Chicago Ribs, One Utama

Celebrating the birth of the most awesome man in my life

Papa Lau! 

Another year older for my dear dad in this month of March

We decided to take our dad to have his birthday dinner at Chicago Rib House at One Utama. 
It is our first time there and it was just okayyy laaaa.

This is the entrance. The restaurant is located at One Utama New Wing
Next to La Senza 
(They are having some sale now! Time to look sexy)

We came on a wednesday night, so there was not much of a crowd, which was a good thing. 

Some pictures while waiting for the food 

My sis and the birthday Papa

My bro's constipated look
He was just too hungry waiting for the food to come 
They also have a bar 

After the long wait, finally the food arrived. 

We started with some nachos. I kinda took this photo after we swallow a few pieces, we were too hungry. haha!

The nachos were not bad but i was rather disappointed with the quantity of the nachos they served. The amount they served is considerably less than other restaurant... 
Then again, i am i sucker for quantity
(in this instance only k. Whatever ur thinking...Stop =p) 

Next, we had the tortilla salad with grilled chicken. 
This is by far the best dish we had all night. 
We loved the texture and taste of the crispy tortilla
So much for a healthy dish=p 
If you do decide to eat there next time, do order the tortilla salad.

    Then, we had the Aglio Olio spaghetti.
The taste was okay
Nothing too special. I found it to be a tad too dry 

Because we are huge eaters
Another spaghetti dish for us 

This is one of their recommended dish---Chill Mexican Spaghetti (if i am not mistaken...hehe)

It is not bad. They have generous amount of beef in the dish

We also tried their ribs. We came to a a rib house, ofcuz we had to try their ribs. They have a few different type of rib marinates that you can choose from.  

They have one with bourbon too 
(hmm..Wonder whether ppl with low tolerance can get high eating em' ribs=p)

The ribs was so so. Not what i expected.
 Tony Romas  Other places serve better ribs, so no more ribs if i come back here. 

 We also tried their Hickory BBQ Bacon burger.

Not sure why a knife is used to stab the burger...
Well at least they didn't use chopsticks...
Now that would have been awkward!
(Sticking chopsticks upright is done during chinese funerals)   

Their burgers are surprisingly not bad. The patty is tender and juicy. 
Very rich piece of meat. Hahaa.
 Then, as we were eating, we notice that most tables ordered their burgers instead of their other food. 
We've been conned into eating their not so good other food! 

All in all, the food was just okay. 
I would recommend ordering the tortilla salad and the burger if you do decide to try eating there.  

I think my dad was kinda happy his children brought him a birthday dinner but at the same time sad cuz the food was not up to his standards

My dad always enjoys A-class food 
(with his dates ofcuz! we children can only patiently wait our turn.)  

My Superstar Father always begins his day with....


He wakes up early in the morning to make fresh fruit juices for all of us
(How lucky...I know right=p)

All of us will drink a jar of fresh orange juice every morning. 
It is our pick me up elixir!  
Scoot over coffee. Hah!

My dad also juices fresh vegetables, star fruits, watermelons and pineapple.

Side joke: My dad kinda got high once on fermented pineapple juice! 
His tolerance is probably like a -ve. It was so hilarious!
(Fermented pineapple will produce some form of alcohol, if you are wondering=D)

We use a special kind of juicer where there no need for any water. 
So 100% of the juice we drink is from the fruit/vege. 
Feel healthier with every sip.

And yes, we use alot of fruits!!!
We buy fruits Wholesale!

People at the wholesale markets think our family open some fruits business. hahaha!

Some of the juices we have in the fridge.
And yes, we buy the jars in the dozens too.

Think my family love getting stuff in bulks, 
otherwise feel kinda cheated. haha=P

At this point, i know what u all must be thinking, 

How spoil can these children get man... 
Having their old man make juices for them every morning,
as if putting a roof over their heads isn't enough

Yeah you are probably right **Hide face in shame** 

But but but...

We also do our fair share okay...

That's me folding clothes

And, ironing

And washing, moping, wiping...

We all share the chores to make up for not having lived in help
**Reminiscing about those maid days..Such clean floors we had** 

I have to admit, we are spoiled to some extend...
But not entirely laaaa
(we still do the house chores yo!)

The three of us are awesome children
**Ego growing**

 This is my dad doing is daily thang!

I am so happy to say that my sis and I have been superb! We managed to influence our dad to start exercising everyday...
Insanity style yo!

But then...He only manage to do the 10 mins warm up! haha!

He says: We must slow sink into it. 
Cannot over exert ourself or not we won't be able to enjoy it! 
For what i want to push myself so hard!

Words from a man half a century old. 
Opinions of others don't affect him so much 

However, even by just doing a short 10 mins workout every morning, my dad lost a few inches off his waist. 
He is constantly pulling up his pants! Yeah! 

The power of Insanity.
Yes, i did promise a post on insanity
Many of you are probably wondering what it is all about
It is coming soon ya. 

 My father has been the best father any girl could ever dream of having. 
He has all the awesome qualities 
caring, protective, intellectual, sense of humor, strictness etc...

No words can describe how grateful i am to have a father like you!

Looks like you will have to tolerate us for many more years to come=D
(We are not moving out so soon..Hah!)

This post is dedicated to my daddy.

 Hope you all were entertained!

Till next time
